Criminalizing the Occupy Movement

Occupy BerlinCriminalizing the Occupy Movement

 

From A.N.S.W.E.R

FBI documents just obtained by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF) pursuant to the PCJF’s Freedom of Information Act demands reveal that from its inception, the FBI treated the Occupy movement as a potential criminal and terrorist threat even though the agency acknowledges in documents that organizers explicitly called for peaceful protest and did “not condone the use of violence” at occupy protests.

The PCJF has obtained heavily redacted documents showing that FBI offices and agents around the country were in high gear conducting surveillance against the movement even as early as August 2011, a month prior to the establishment of the OWS encampment in Zuccotti Park and other Occupy actions around the country.

“This production, which we believe is just the tip of the iceberg, is a window into the nationwide scope of the FBI’s surveillance, monitoring, and reporting on peaceful protestors organizing with the Occupy movement,” stated Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, Executive Director of the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF).  “These documents show that the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are treating protests against the corporate and banking structure of America as potential criminal and terrorist activity.  These documents also show these federal agencies functioning as a de facto intelligence arm of Wall Street and Corporate America.”

  1. Hwaa, thanks for the advice. In my case, I gave up working and put my energy into music (a sort of one-man band). Living is very hard but I’m free (of all the programming).. Happy New Year!

  2. As an anecdote, many years ago I refused responsibilities in the workplace believing that the time was not ripe for me to make my place in the world – consequently, I became an all-rounder. This move worked fine while I was young but once I reached a certain age, society turned against me. I was attacked, sometimes physically but more often than not, psychologically; these days, the term used is “mobbing”. Society is laid out in a manner whereby everyone does his/her job and keeps quiet about anything which needs change (as that is something only the bosses can implement). The workplace is the microcosm of society as a whole. Sometimes, just a small modification in the way we do things can have a large impact on the lives of many individuals: they could be happier, no longer subject to stress and consequently, could produce more. Unfortunately, there’s a stubborn streak in all of the ruling class that refuses to bend to the will of the people: they are convinced that change in unnecessary and we should all be doing what we’ve always done and not complain. If only they would listen with their hearts and not their wallets. The Occupy Movement is just one concerned citizen multiplied by thousands. To blame them instead of listening to their griefs is cowardly to say the least.

    • Thank you Joe for sharing your journey… just to say, it is never too late! Dont let a decision you made in the past, continue to determine today if it is not right for you! Its time for all of us to think out of the box! We have to anyway… Those that have run the world for so long have basically run out of ideas, and more to the point money, that’s way they are not prepared to change/listen. Their greed is more important than their hearts and souls, and whether we live or die, so dont be afraid to live before you die!
