I just got back home from Occupy the Fed Dallas/Occupy Dallas. with pics I just got back home from the Occupy the Fed Dallas protest. Turnout was more than a few hundred people from what I saw (I arrived a little after 5 but I heard people were out there for hours before). Quite the variety of people there. Most signes were End the Fed related/anti-bank, along with Anonymous (the Guy Fawkes masks to), Ron Paul, and more anti-government. Alex Jones was on the mega phone, doing interviews, and shaking almost everybodys hand there. "You know why the police brought out the gang unit??? I wasnt able to catch all of his speeches, but they should be up on youtube pretty soon. Unfortunantly, OccupyDallas didnt really show up. The police again were very respectful. That was pretty much the jist of things earlier today. Oh yea, there were quite a few beautiful women there to. (Pics were taken on my phone, could have been better but its better than nothing)

Open Letter to Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi | UCDavis Bicycle Barricade 18 November 2011 Open Letter to Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi Linda P.B. I am a junior faculty member at UC Davis. You are not. I write to you and to my colleagues for three reasons: 1) to express my outrage at the police brutality which occurred against students engaged in peaceful protest on the UC Davis campus today 2) to hold you accountable for this police brutality 3) to demand your immediate resignation Today you ordered police onto our campus to clear student protesters from the quad. What happened next? Without any provocation whatsoever, other than the bodies of these students sitting where they were on the ground, with their arms linked, police pepper-sprayed students. What happened next? Police used batons to try to push the students apart. This is what happened. You are responsible for it because this is what happens when UC Chancellors order police onto our campuses to disperse peaceful protesters through the use of force: students get hurt. Sincerely, Like this: Like Loading...

Internal NYPD Rift Over Aggressive Tactics Used Against Peaceful #OccupyWallStreet Protesters? The site says that they “received unconfirmed reports that over one hundred blue-collar police refused to come into work in solidarity with our movement.” This is a potentially huge story. We’re looking into this to verify. This report featured in the Boston Review gives a first-hand account of several cases of police brutality, which occurred during Saturday’s march. As the report states, blue-collar officers were shocked by the aggressive tactics white-collar officers used. Why I Was Maced at the Wall Street ProtestsBy Jeanne Mansfield, Boston Review My boyfriend Frank and I are heading toward Liberty Square to check out what’s going on at the Occupy Wall Street protest, when we stumble upon the afternoon march toward Union Square. All in all, it starts out as a pretty good time. As we circle Union Square, about twenty NYPD officers haul out orange plastic nets (the kind used to fence off construction sites) and close off the road, diverting the crowd.

Interview with creator of Occupy Wall Street "bat-signal" projections during Brooklyn Bridge #N17 march REUTERS/Jessica Rinaldi Earlier this evening, tens of thousands of Occupy Wall Street protesters marched throughout New York City, many making their way on to the Brooklyn Bridge, carrying LED candles and chanting. As Occupiers took the bridge in a seemingly endless sea of people, words in light appeared projected on the iconic Verizon Building nearby: "99% / MIC CHECK! A few hours later I spoke with Mark Read, who organized the "bat-signal" project. XJ: How did this come together? Mark Read: It came up at an action coordination meeting. And a guy named Hero, who has been central to a lot of facets of the occupation since the beginning, turns to me and says, "We need a bat signal. I said, I think I can do that. My friend Will Etundi, who I know from these renegade street parties, the alter-globalization movement, carnivals against capital—he's part of a community of friends who deploy spectacle and art in the service of radical politics. I knew we'd need a powerful projector. MR: I did.

Obama Calls On Authorities To Refrain From Violence Against Peaceful Protestors The Arab Spring has become the American Fall. Surely what President Obama believed ten months ago was true for Egypt, is also true for America today? Via The White House: The White House Office of the Press Secretary For Immediate Release January 28, 2011 State Dining Room THE PRESIDENT: Good evening, everybody. The people of Egypt have rights that are universal. I also call upon the Egyptian government to reverse the actions that they’ve taken to interfere with access to the Internet, to cell phone service and to social networks that do so much to connect people in the 21st century. At the same time, those protesting in the streets have a responsibility to express themselves peacefully. Now, going forward, this moment of volatility has to be turned into a moment of promise. In the absence of these reforms, grievances have built up over time. Violence will not address the grievances of the Egyptian people. Now, ultimately the future of Egypt will be determined by the Egyptian people. Friends:

Occupy Wall Street - History in the Making Since the Canadian activist group, Adbusters, called for everyone to Occupy Wall Street on September 17, 2011, millions of people worldwide have joined the movement. Pushing primarily for greater wealth equality in the US and less corporate influence over the government, the Occupy movement is one that aims to lessen the gap between the 99% and the wealthiest 1% in America. The demonstrations are based in Zuccotti Park in the Wall Street financial district of New York, but since then they have spread to over 900 cities worldwide. However, social media and technology have definitely played a significant role in helping to advance the movement. Youtube, especially has been the group's main mode of communication; as well as Twitter, which has allowed them to feed a steady flow of updates to millions of followers. One supporter, a Brooklyn software developer, even went so far as to create a special smart phone application to help protesters demonstrating at an Occupy rally. Now Searching...

Caught on Camera: 10 Shockingly Violent Police Assaults on Occupy Protesters November 18, 2011 | Like this article? Join our email list: Stay up to date with the latest headlines via email. Occupations across the country have born the brunt of some violent police tactics, and in a world where everyone has a camera-phone, a lot of their brutish behavior has been caught in photographs and on video. Police work is difficult and dangerous, and the majority of officers on the street behave like pros. But being human, cops are also prone to fear and rage like everyone else. Unlike protesters, cops are also armed, and it's difficult to hold them accountable for their actions when they don't behave professionally. Below are some of the most stunning incidents of police officers going wild on Occupy protesters around the country. 1. This now-iconic image was captured by The Oregonian in Portland on November 17. 2.
