FBI Documents Reveal Secret Nationwide Occupy Monitoring

FBI Documents Reveal Secret Nationwide Occupy Monitoring
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. “The documents are heavily redacted, and it is clear from the production that the FBI is withholding far more material. You can read the FBI - OWS documents below where we have uploaded them in searchable format for public viewing.

How the FBI coordinated the crackdown on Occupy It was more sophisticated than we had imagined: new documents show that the violent crackdown on Occupy last fall – so mystifying at the time – was not just coordinated at the level of the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and local police. The crackdown, which involved, as you may recall, violent arrests, group disruption, canister missiles to the skulls of protesters, people held in handcuffs so tight they were injured, people held in bondage till they were forced to wet or soil themselves –was coordinated with the big banks themselves. The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund, in a groundbreaking scoop that should once more shame major US media outlets (why are nonprofits now some of the only entities in America left breaking major civil liberties news?), filed this request. Verheyden-Hilliard points out the close partnering of banks, the New York Stock Exchange and at least one local Federal Reserve with the FBI and DHS, and calls it "police-statism":

Democracy Now!: The FBI vs. Occupy? Secret Docs Reveal "Counterterrorism" Monitoring of OWS From Its Earliest Days Once-secret documents reveal the FBI monitored Occupy Wall Street from its earliest days and treated the nonviolent movement as a potential terrorist threat. Internal government records show Occupy was treated as a potential threat when organizing first began in August of 2011. Counterterrorism agents were used to track Occupy activities, despite the internal acknowledgment that the movement opposed violent tactics. "We can see decade after decade with each social justice movement that the FBI conducts itself in the same role over and over again, which is to act really as the secret police of the establishment against the people," says Mara Verheyden-Hilliard of the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund, which obtained the FBI documents through the Freedom of Information Act. In a 15-minute interview on Democracy Now!, Verheyden-Hilliard highlighted the most shocking information learned from the documents.

Revolution or WWIII? The Petrodollar Scam Dave Hodges - The Commonsense Show When the present gun control dance concludes, America could soon be doing a waltz with a different partner, World War III, as the globalists completely condition us to be absolutely submissive to their desires. If we surrender our guns and capitulate to the globalists, tens of millions of Americans will die from starvation, targeted genocide and world war. There is, however, another alternative, we could decide to enter into the tried and true ”three stage plan” of revolution. These two bipolar choices do not provide America with much of a middle ground.

FBI Ignored Deadly Threat to Occupiers New documents obtained from the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security by the Partnership for Civil Justice and released this past week show that the FBI and other intelligence and law enforcement agencies began a campaign of monitoring, spying and disrupting the Occupy Movement at least two months before the first occupation actions began in late September 2011. As early as August, while acknowledging that the incipient Occupy Movement was “peaceful” in nature, federal, state and local officials from the FBI, the DHS and the many Fusion Centers and Joint Terrorism Task Force centers around the country were meeting with local financial institutions and their private security organizations to plot out a strategy for countering the Occupy Movement’s campaign. The chilling document in question reads as follows:

Occupy Wall Street leader now works for Google, wants to crowdfund a private militia By Yasha Levine On February 7, 2014 Remember Justine Tunney? The OWS-anarchist-turned-cultist-Google-employee who bashed my reporting on Google’s for-profit surveillance? Well, today she hit the big time. America : Freedom to Fascism Mise en ligne le 15 nov. 2011 Purchase full quality Director's cut DVD here: Rate film here - note the divide between reviews of corrupt corporate media and the people: The true enemies of liberty and all modern societies and people are the central bank counterfeiters. The largest counterfeiter in the history of the world consists of the Federal Reserve banking scheme, which counterfeits American dollars through fiat currency and fractional reserve banking. America Freedom to Fascism exposes the fraud and deceit of the Federal Reserve Banks (Fed), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the 16th Amendment, the income tax, the Federal Reserve System, national ID cards (REAL ID Act), human-implanted RFID tags (Spychips), Diebold electronic voting machines, New World Order (globalization), Big Brother, taser weapons abuse, and the use of terrorism by government as a means to diminish the citizens' rights.

How the FBI Coordinated the Crackdown on Occupy Wolf writes: "New documents show that the violent crackdown on Occupy last fall ... was not just coordinated at the level of the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and local police." By Naomi Wolf, Guardian UK 29 December 12 New documents prove what was once dismissed as paranoid fantasy: totally integrated corporate-state repression of dissent t was more sophisticated than we had imagined: new documents show that the violent crackdown on Occupy last fall - so mystifying at the time - was not just coordinated at the level of the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and local police.

It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way There is a story being told about us here in the tech industry in San Francisco — that we are entitled, or that we are oblivious. I don’t believe that’s true. Or I don’t believe that it has to be true. I’m worried that if we do not have a civil discussion soon, the situation will become violent or contentious beyond recognition. FBI Occupy Wall Street Memos Skip Infiltration Of Occupy Cleveland WASHINGTON -- Connor Stevens was sentenced to eight years in prison in mid-November for taking part in a plot to blow up an Ohio bridge. The 20-year-old's sentence was the culmiation of work by an FBI informant, who pushed the bridge idea, and furnished Stevens and his associates with jobs, drugs, and ultimately explosives. The informant's operation began at Occupy Cleveland, where he met the would-be bombers. The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the FBI for all documents related to the agency's work monitoring Occupy Wall Street.

Achievement Unlocked: The SF Class War Reaches Godwin’s Law Yes, Tom Perkins went there. In a letter to the Wall Street Journal published this morning, with the surprising title “Progressive Kristallnacht Coming?,” the legendary venture capitalist compared Nazi Germany’s war on the Jews to “the progressive war on the American one percent.” Before going too much further, let’s get this one little thing out of the way: Nothing should EVER be compared to the Holocaust, a tragedy in which 6 million Jews and another 5 million Germans lost their lives, except the Holocaust, or at the very least, other massive state-run genocides.

DOD to ACLU: We surrender. (Originally posted on Daily Kos.) It might seem hard to believe, but it is true. The Department of Defense (DOD) considers protests an example of "low-level terrorism," at least according to an exam DOD employees were required to take this year. You would have thought that the Pentagon learned its lesson after its nationwide surveillance program targeting peace activists, called TALON, was exposed in 2005 and roundly condemned. Israel Complicit in Global State Terrorism Israel Complicit in Global State Terrorism Rogue state government runs Israel by Stephen Lendman Israel threatens world peace and security. It's a global menace. The International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network (IJAZN) is unequivocal.
