(APN) ATLANTA -- At a press conference at City Hall today, Friday, December 21, 2012, activists with Occupy Atlanta alleged that the City of Atlanta deceived them and the Atlanta Municipal Court with respect to eight hundred pages of documents that the activists say they subpoenaed months ago.

In addition, recent court proceedings have revealed a significant spying operation by the City of Atlanta in connection with other agencies including the federal Department of Homeland Security, on Occupy Atlanta.

All week long, over eighty Occupy Atlanta activists have been on trial, including 53 who were arrested during a massive arrest at Woodruff Park that occurred October 25 and 26, 2011. Most of those were charged with being in the park between 11pm and 6am, a petty misdemeanor.

Other activists faced charges stemming from additional arrests that occurred on November 01, 2011, involving a protest that spilled out into the street; and from a later protest at a Chase Bank branch. The latter arrestees are known as the Chase 8.

2. "in connection with other agencies including the federal Department of Homeland Security"

 

This should be neither over-looked nor underestimated.

3. Deceiving the Court

may be the straw that breaks the back -- or at least I can hope.
