"Security Forces Arrest Supporters of Striking Walmart Warehouse Workers"

http://dissenter.firedoglake.com/2012/10/01/private-security-force-arrests-supporters-of-striking-walmart-warehouse-workers/

Community, faith and labor organizations mobilized this afternoon for a rally and civil disobedience action in support of thirty-eight workers on strike at a Walmart warehouse in Elwood, Illinois. They marched down to this distribution center, and, at least thirteen clergy and community leaders sat down and blocked an entrance to the center to prevent goods from arriving or leaving the warehouse. After the leaders sat down in the road, a security force believed to be the Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System Mobile Field Force, clad in riot gear, marched out and surrounded the leaders.

The security force arrested all of the people committing civil disobedience. They had an officer with a camera taking video of the action. They also drove a Humvee with an Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD) out into the street and parked fifty to one hundred feet away from where people were being arrested. The warehouse was, according to Warehouse Workers for Justice (WWJ), completely shut down.

Live streamer “MoccupyChi” was on hand and captured the entire action, including the paramilitary force that greeted those engaged in nonviolent action.

(AND they had an LRAD aimed at the protesters. More at the link. This one via Vermin Supreme.)

Maybe, instead of arresting American peaceful protesters today, Wal-Mart could have offered them a living wage. #Walmartstrikers

Iceland’s Economy now growing faster than the U.S. and EU after arresting corrupt bankers

http://americanlivewire.com/world-economic-news-icelands-economy-now-growing-fas/

So Iceland didnt follow the rest of the world by bailing out bankers they arrested them. Now their economy is recovering faster than the EU and the United States.

Remember when the United States government told the American people that action was required to save the banks? Action in the form of Billions of dollars in debt? Yeah we remember that. Hundreds of Billions of dollars in National debt later were still chasing our tail trying to get out of debt.

At the time of the 2008 collapse Iceland was in worse shape than almost any other country in the world. Hmmmmm..

Gill Tract Farming Continues, UC Development Faces Referendum, Lawsuits, Whole Foods Withdrawal

Occupy Oakland ‏@OccupyOakland

Major win for #OccupyTheFarm and Albany, CA as Whole Foods pulls out of development deal with #UCBerkeley http://tinyurl.com/98nelrv #OO #OWS
Retweeted by Gill Tract Farm

http://www.occupythefarm.org/index.php/17-general-content/96-gill-tract-farming-continues-uc-development-faces-referendum-lawsuits-whole-foods-withdrawal

On Sunday September 30th, renegade farmers once again broke into the Gill Tract to tend to acres of food crops planted throughout a three-week protest on the land earlier this Spring.

Sunday's farming-action follows several critical developments in the battle to defend Gill Tract agricultural land from a controversial University of California development project.

On Wednesday September 19th, Alameda County verified a "Keep Albany Local" petition for referendum against the Albany City Council approval of the UC development project. Two days later, on Friday September 21st, Whole Foods, the anchor tenant in the plan for commercial retail, announced that the corporation terminated its lease agreement with the University Regents. Two separate groups of Albany residents also have lawsuits pending against the City of Albany for its allegedly illegal approval of the UC Environmental Impact Report.

Because US media did not show you. Wouldn't want people getting any bright ideas, would they.

On September 29, the Spanish people surrounded their congress and demanded it step down. The country is 90% in debt (TO WHO!?) and unemployment is 25% or higher (50% for those under 30, via ermasdaughter downthread).

But just previously, they attempted the same thing on September 25.

WATCH THIS AND SHOW SOLIDARITY! @JFTAXI: Its very hard to watch this video from the streets of Madrid.



Youtube comment for the video beneath it:

They were police provocateurs buddy wake upp you see the same later in the video dragging off protesters.

The guys with the dark blue hoodies and red flags are provocateurs 0:06 same as 1:36 only here they drag protesters off to the van to get arested.

And they always in the front rows hitting the cops with the red flag pole to intice agression and give them an excuse to charge its all staged by the cops.

So the police did start the agression.

The next video of police brutality has been age-restricted on youtube due to obvious police brutality. If it will not show up here, search youtube for

I uploaded a @YouTube video #29S Madrid protest recap




I've found one long sentence in Time Magazine, October 8 2012, "The Mormon Identity", page 14, "World":

"Meanwhile, anti-austerity protests rocked the Spanish capital yet again, as demonstrators marched on the country's parliament building and confronted police, leading to at least 64 people being arrested."

Food

As the vibration increases and the presence of the higher vibrational dimensions further opens our eyes, the concept of growing our own food at our homes and in community gardens becomes increasingly obvious. Growing so-called "superfoods" is a great way to maximize benefit from your work.

It is a good idea to store food types not possible or easy to grow, in ways beating temperature/entropy/insects and animals, and to learn how to preserve what you grow.

If the idea to grow food comes to you, please follow it.

Quebec student leaders want to spark national anti-Harper movement

http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Canada/2012/09/29/20245111.html

The face of the Quebec student protests, Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, has embarked on a Canada-wide tour to inspire Canadians to fight against austerity measures as well as Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

The seven-day speaking tour began Saturday in London, Ont., and ends Oct. 5 in Vancouver.

Nadeau-Dubois is joined on the tour by a former representative from Quebec student federation, CLASSE, as well as Ethan Cox, the Quebec correspondent for Rabble.ca, an online news organization.

More at the link, and that's good, because Harper just snuck through a secret deal with China:


Canada-China investment deal allows for confidential lawsuits against Canada

New Federal Lawsuit Filed Against NYPD for Occupy Arrests – PCJF Challenges Unlawful Police Tactics

Occupy Wall Street ‏@OccupyWallStNYC

From @InterOcc: New Federal Lawsuit Filed Against NYPD for Occupy Arrests PCJF Challenges Unlawful Police Tactics, ... http://ow.ly/2srIW1

http://interoccupy.net/blog/federal-lawsuit-nypd/

The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF) has filed a federal lawsuit on September 20th, 2012 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York challenging the New York Police Department’s use of sidewalk arrests in which persons are targeted for false arrest based on their association with or proximity to dissent and protest. The lawsuit is filed on behalf of individuals who were falsely arrested on September 24, 2011 in the first week of the Occupy Wall Street movement, including one plaintiff who was subject to Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna’s notorious pepper spray attack on peaceful demonstrators.

The lawsuit, Sterling, et al. v. City of New York, et.al., Case No. 12-CV-7086 seeks to end the New York City police tactics of arresting people lawfully present on city sidewalks and the use of orange netting and police lines to conduct indiscriminate group arrests. The lawsuit also seeks compensatory and punitive damages against NYPD officers for the false arrests and Deputy Inspector Bologna for the pepper spray assault.

“It is evident from the mass use of illegal sidewalks arrests executed yet again this weekend during OWS demonstrations that this is an unlawful tactic the NYPD will use over and over again until a Judge declares this tactic to be unconstitutional,” stated Carl Messineo, Legal Director of the PCJF. “With this lawsuit, protestors are taking the offensive to stop it.”

No enthusiasts of austerity and bank/government theft of public coffers need post in this thread.
