Documents just obtained by the PCJF from its FOIA request show massive nationwide monitoring, surveillance and information sharing between the Department of Homeland Security and local authorities in response to Occupy. The PCJF, also on behalf of author/filmmaker Michael Moore and the National Lawyers Guild Mass Defense Committee, has made a series of FOIA demands regarding law enforcement involvement in the Occupy Crackdown.

We already knew THAT. We will not be swayed from excercizing our constitutional rights, or from taking back democracy of the people by the people and for the people.

Well the NYPD sure didn't benefit in court. They lost a case they brought against their own journalist.


Bloomberg must be so happy with his army in blue.

This comes as no surprise, it's SOP for those guys. It's neither good nor bad.

It seems pretty bad to me.

Why do you think it's bad? Does your family think that your involvement in #OWS is a bad thing?

Would they simply forget your existence if the gestapo arrested you and locked you up and tossed away the key? They can do that now, ya know?

Well, considering the proliferation of surveillance lately, it's just one more place for them to gather information. As long as you're not advocating violence or threatening to assassinate any heads of state, there shouldn't be a problem.
