No More! We Need National Solidarity Against Police Brutality

So, who are these guys in the photos? Police, military, or mercenaries? Who's paying them? Disneyland or Anaheim?

Anaheim needs to know.

This video of police shooting rubber bullets into crowd of women and children as well as unleashing a dog that attacked a women holding her baby was uploaded on July 22, 2012...

Do we seriously need to have a conversation about American media being liars?

Or not covering important, historic events at all, such as the ongoing, massive no-nuke protests throughout Japan?

When someone posts a story from Press TV, RT News, Aljazeera, BBC, etc. you should be thankful you're getting a story at all. As a member of the Occupy movement I can tell you from personal experience that US media twist things, omit them to shift context, or simply ignore things completely, yet I've seen great work from local Press TV and RT News reporters/crews, who have repeatedly offered realistic depictions of events in which I've witnessed and participated.

Now I know that I'm not taking this heat specifically because I'm with Occupy.

Edit: I've been following the Anaheim situation as closely as possible, including watching hours of livestream, and what Amber says to Thom Hartmann on Russia Today is true:

Is Antonio Villaraigosa poised to be America’s first Latino president?

There are not enough screams...non-Los Angeleans, DO NOT be taken in by Mr. Villain. He's long had relations with developers and lobbyists and outright attacked the homeless for them to help them gentrify (see "The Soloist" for true events). Also read

Huge Subsidy for Stadium Architect
Villaraigosa quietly plans to hand Gensler $1 million meant for the poor

http://www.laweekly.com/2011-04-21/news/huge-subsidy-for-stadium-architect/

And he sent by their count 1,400 cops to destroy the OccupyLA encampment after the LA City Council said to them "You can stay as long as you want".

Please remember. And find this article later down the road.

Identified as SWAT despite the Army gear, thank you!



A military friend is telling me that this entire getup is Army.

BTW, the image is taken from last Sunday in Anaheim. He is holding an M32, which is currently in trail use with the Marines. The obvious message is "Do what we say or else". To peaceful people protesting murderous police...

Do you wonder why I get uptight about things like drones, the NDAA, and increasingly militarized police?

"Not National Guard. I checked their patches myself."

But...do police rest in this manner?

Anaheim protest today against murderous police

This week Anaheim police executed a man while in handcuffs, killed another, and shot a third, all in the Latino community of Anaheim. They repeatedly shot seated families including mothers and children with pepper ball weapons and unleashed a police dog upon them. Some media went straight from the murder to "people are rioting", utterly ignoring that Anaheim citizens hold a weekly protest against police brutality, and that women and children were shot at and bitten. Police went around the neighborhood attempting to purchase all video. That night, APD and assisting police from outlying areas shot up and arrested several citizens and opened fire upon credited media. Yesterday Anaheim PD put up barricades around their headquarters. Today activists from around Southern and even Northern California converge to protest their racist organization and the monstrosity behind them, the Disney corporation. There are photos from yesterday of a massive police practice operation, and word of LA sheriffs mobilizing to assist.

When you are a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Time to turn hammers into plowshares.

Militarized riot police stop marchers from reaching the true center of power, Disneyland.



Militarized cop checks timcast's ID three times...for being in a public place:



The police state is here.



http://blogs.ocweekly.com/navelgazing/2012/07/anaheim_police_protests_sunday.php

"Remember, there's two protests today, both starting officially at noon: a peace rally in front of Anaheim City Hall, and the regular Anaheim Cruzaders protest outside the police station. Both explicitly reject violence and vandalism, so keep that in mind."

@OpAnaheim is looking for people on the ground at the #anaheim protests to help coordinate the delivery of food to protesters #opanaheim

#occupy, stand in #solidarity with the #anaheim protesters! Consider donating a pizza or food to them! http://tiny.cc/OpAnaheim-Pizza #opanaheim


APD release "protest guidelines" stunningly devoid of the understanding that Anaheim residents and the world in general will not tolerate the murder of citizens.
