Banks Working with Police to ‘Identify, Map and Track’ Occupy Protesters


The nation’s largest financial institutions are preparing for the upcoming Occupy Wall Street’s May 1st demonstrations by working together and with police, according to Bloomberg News.


The banks from America and overseas are working to “identify, map and track” protesters.

Among 99 protest targets in midtown Manhattan on Tuesday are JPMorgan Chase and Bank of America offices, said Marisa Holmes, a member of Occupy's May Day planning committee. "Our goal is to kick off the spring offensive and go directly to where the financial elite play and plan," she said.

2. I call BULLSHIT!

I think this is a bunch of bunk.

I don't think they're "mapping" or "tracking" any protesters. What a ridiculous choice of
words! Will they be following us home, and to the grocery store--cataloguing what kind
of breakfast cereal we eat and how much red meat we purchase?

I'm sorry--I know that many police officers are nefarious assholes and I also understand
that the upper crust in those banks, are true psychopaths. However, there is no way to
really do what they suggest.

I think this is a planted story--written at the behest of the big banks who are terrified
of OWS 2.0. They know we've got more time until it gets cold again, more people on our
side this time around; and that we educated people about these crooks.

We're coming back around again and they'll do everything they can to quell the opposition. The
peasants must remain silent while they pilfer the planet, dammit!

"Identifying, mapping and tracking" thousands of protesters is just not going to happen. They wish.

This is an attempt to scare OWSers into sitting out and staying home. That's all this is. More
games from the goons.
