Bloomberg’s Army Will Not Silence Us

The first anniversary of Occupy Wall Street was a joyous affair for the 99%.

Yet regrettably, it was also a day that illustrated how Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s ‘private army’ has been increasingly unleashed to beat, arrest, imprison, and broadly suppress OWS.

Please post your videos, photos, and stories about how your rights were infringed on the Occupy Bloomberg’s Army Facebook page.

Occupy is a nonviolent movement, but this has not prevented Bloomberg’s Army from engaging in targeted arrests of specific organizers as well as random street ‘snatch and release’ intimidation tactics.

On September 17th not even the constant drone of helicopters overhead could drown out the screams of ‘I’m a journalist’ from the reporters who were arrested merely for practicing their and our right to freedom of the press.

And not even a cry of ‘I’m a City Councilmember’ was enough to staunch the established policy of brutality within the Mayor of Wall Street’s Police Department.

The message being sent by Bloomberg’s Army is being heard loud and clear. In Bloomberg’s New York: anyone who supports Occupy Wall Street in any fashion is being made an example of.

Were you one of these people extra-legally arrested or assaulted, or have you witnessed someone who was?

Post your videos, photos, and stories on the Occupy Bloomberg’s Army Facebook page.

We will not be stymied by the over 180 arrests on our anniversary, nor intimidated by the unprovoked and random nature of so many of them.

We will fight for our right to protest Wall Street while we protest Wall Street itself.

All Roads Lead To Wall Street

Wow, look at the all the zero point comments below!! I guess NYPD bullies don't like being called out. They obviously think they are above the law.

No amount of force and repression will silence the ideas of this movement.

[-] 1 points by cJessgo (729) from Port Jervis, PA 11 years ago

I agree. My point is that the force used and the repression directed towards OWS will not decrease.It is only going to increase.As we say this is just the begining.It is imporant not to make the states agents of repression the issue.Nice to hear from you.


[-] 1 points by cJessgo (729) from Port Jervis, PA 11 years ago

It is a key to our message that brings the repression.I have always thought that as occupy grows and becomes more popular so to will the hand of the one percent .Remember they have and will use the armed forces one unarmed Americans.

in that nearly featureless space above the eyes we are all pretty much the same. we are too occupied by the features below. the details of the features, the uniforms that it displays. imagine if all that was treated as it was secondary, it's rightful place. as if we could wear blinders that allowed us not to see anything below, then what would matter would change and perspective would be achieved.

Well said--featureless. The only feature is the 1%. They do not have the minimum education of life, yet they are the Lord of the world.

Are you all having problems with the Po Po? If so please tell me about it.

[-] 0 points by writerconsidered123 (344) 11 years ago

my question to OWS: can OWS file a class action lawsuit against NYPD?


[-] 0 points by nomdeguerre (1775) from Brooklyn, NY 11 years ago

In cases of cop illegality always take the cops badge number and be prepared to sue the cop individually. We have to use civil law to enforce the law, the enforcement of criminal law has become corrupted.

The 1%, the Sky People, the Morlocks want protection so they have given free rein to the NYPD.

They even get away with beating judges. http://queenscrap.blogspot.com/2012/08/brown-wont-bring-brutality-charges.html
