http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zh9kmx3wEv8 Published on May 23, 2013 The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund has obtained documents that prove OWS protesters encamped in Terry Schrunk Plaza in Portland, Oregon, were evicted for political and business reasons - not for the reasons the city stated, which were health and safety concerns. The documents also shed light on police activity in Boston and across the nation in terms of the OWS movement in general.

'The Eviction of Occupy Portland, Ore. : A Supremely Political Affair & New Docs Show More Detail into Boston Law Enforcement Focus on Peaceful Protests' :

''The latest trove of documents obtained by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF) from the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Protective Service adds new detail to the spying work of federal law enforcement agencies coordinating with local law enforcement and city governments to act against Occupy encampments.

“These documents make clear that the shutdown of Occupy was not based on the supposed ‘health and safety’ concerns that law enforcement used as a public rationale, but rather that the decisions were profoundly political including a prioritization of business interests’ demands over First Amendment rights,” stated attorney Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, Executive Director of the PCJF.

''The documents show the intense political discussion and collaboration between the Justice Department, the DHS, local law enforcement and business interests who wanted Occupy Portland, Ore., to be shut down.

''The documents also show the resources devoted by Boston “anti-terrorism” authorities focusing on Occupy Boston events during the fall of 2011.'' - Thanx qm & brief excerpt from :

sean stone in his piece on malcom shabbaz stated that and i am paraphrasing and i can't remember if he said it was cia or fbi but he said his source said that of course they killed the leaders (jfk, rfk, mlk, malcom x), of course they used conintelpro to neutralize subversives, of course dhs coordinated attacks nationwide at the behest of bankers to dismantle occupy wall st. they don't plan on letting any other leaders rise or movements start.

Doin' good...got behind on a couple of things and had to catch up! But I've been keeping and eye on ya! Of course, it seems like someone else has their eye on you, too!

I don't think its been a secret amongst us here that we're probably on some type of list. But I sure am glad that untold thousands of people in the mass public are finally finding out about the surveillance state. Its like I can hear all the lightbulbs turning on.

What did you think of the World Bank attorney, karen hudes, interview that quantumystic posted? You were the only response other than mine and you thanked him for the great find of the video. I thought she was telling the truth.

[-] 6 points by Renneye (3874) 9 years ago

Yes, 'windyacres', and thanks for the opportunity to speak on it again.

Karen Hudes is the real deal, alright. Her resume and years of diligence against corruption should leave no-one wondering whether she has clout.

This is exactly the kind of quality whistleblower the world needs to uncover the staggering amount of corruption at the top echelons of the Corporate 0.01%. If this doesn't do it. I fear nothing will.

This is a massive cover-up, and should be viral.

http://occupywallst.org/forum/world-bank-revolving-door-of-corruption-with-whist/

~" A former insider at the World Bank, ex-Senior Counsel Karen Hudes, says the global financial system is dominated by a small group of corrupt, power-hungry figures centered around the privately owned U.S. Federal Reserve. The network has seized control of the media to cover up its crimes, too, she explained. In an interview with The New American, Hudes said that when she tried to blow the whistle on multiple problems at the World Bank, she was fired for her efforts. Now, along with a network of fellow whistleblowers, Hudes is determined to expose and end the corruption. And she is confident of success."

“This is like crooks trying to figure out where they can go hide. It’s a mafia,” she said. “These culprits that have grabbed all this economic power have succeeded in infiltrating both sides of the issue, so you will find people who are supposedly trying to fight corruption who are just there to spread disinformation and as a placeholder to trip up anybody who manages to get their act together.… Those thugs think that if they can keep the world ignorant, they can bleed it longer.” ~

Should we expect dirty laundry stories about karen Hudes and Glenn Greenwald soon? They're aggressively punishing journalists and whistleblowers already!

Expectations that the rule of law will prevail might be difficult if the masses are not convinced that finally the point has come when we say, Enough!

And this quote from you; " If this doesn't do it. I fear nothing will.". I need to consider what martial law would be like if this is handled quietly.

Yep - light bulbs turning on - as the government hastens to reassure that every thing is cool folks. ( BS on a major scale ) so lets keep our fingers crossed that the public furor does not die out. Yeah most definetly this forum is watched as well as many other forums and blogs and and and

It really is going to be interesting to see how this plays out in the general public. Some will believe the corporate government's excuses and turn the lights off again, while many will tune into the internet to see what's really going on.

That's why the fascigarchs want control of the internet soooo bad! We can't let them get the internet.

Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement (TPP), seeks to control international internet usage by sneaking in provisions that will make sharing of information disastrous.

TPP just finished their 17th round of secret negotiations. Given that the TPP is global in impact, I wish Occupy would take up the cause and organize a global march against the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the same way Occupy marched in unity against Monsanto.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership will affect EVERYONE...creating still bleaker conditions, that further exploit our fellow human beings while expediting oppressive capitalist rule.

Yep - they want complete control of ALL communications capabilities. Now they present reasons for the public to give up the last of their free speech and privacy rights. Instead of "ONLY" doing what they should be doing - working on their own security at their access points to the internet. Nope they don't want to do only that - they want to complete the end of free speech the end of real news sharing the end of public protest over the internet. They want to close another door of our freedoms in the ongoing program of subjugation.

[-] 4 points by Renneye (3874) 9 years ago

Yes!...And, global in scope. So, it begs the question...Why aren't we marching globally against internet control? Against the TPP?

The success of the Monsanto march clearly indicates that global marches can be organized via Occupy, with great confidence.

One could also conclude that after the Monsanto march, any subsequent marches would be organized with even greater precision, given that the occupiers/activists involved, already have their contacts and practical knowledge of the process, lined up.

So, why aren't we marching globally against the TPP, again? It leaves one scratching their head!

Perhaps you could submit that comment to Avaaz as well as to the site admin. Global actions are beginning to happen and that is very good to see - still it requires input - good input like your comment.

Done deal. So for those of you who might doubt that your privacy has been invaded?

Remember the old adage - GUILT BY ASSOCIATION.

They have branded OWS/Occupy as suspect - so if you are reading this - you can be put ( by the law as it stands ) on a watch list - where by today's standards - your communications are no longer private.
