Occupy Portland threatened by Oregon’s leading newspaper

An editorial in Friday’s Oregonian made no effort to conceal the choice that is being prepared by Portland’s Democratic mayor if Occupy Portland does not, as the newspaper put it, “end sooner.” Revealing the rising concern that the protest may ignite a much larger social movement, the paper ominously warned, “Or it can end later, and end badly, either in a spasm of violence involving someone at the camp, or the inevitable police action if the occupiers insist on pushing their protest to a bitter end.”

This remarkably blunt threat comes only two days after the police assault on anti-Wall Street protesters in Oakland, California, in which Scott Olsen, 24, was critically injured when police shot a supposedly non-lethal police projectile directly at his head. Other demonstrators who attempted to come to his aid were then themselves attacked with tear gas.

This is a rather anonymous SONG-CHANT-RANT offering, that will hopefully unify our message on the streets. Imparting some basic historical information that has lead to the continued debasing of free forms of Government. Where a select group of power seekers never seem to have enough of anything, including us.This is a very serious time for the FREE Global Community, our only weapon is Martin Luther King's legacy. They further try to discredit us with accusations of not having a coherent message when their only endgame is to further in-slave us! Abusing others until there is only two classes the Haves and Have-Not's.
