I just got back from the Halliburton protest here in Houston, and
Houston cops lost it.

We were on the sidewalk and they rode their horses on the sidewalk into the crowd knocking some people over, I was one them.

Some of them had homemade two foot billy clubs and they used them, swinging them in the air and two cops I saw us them to hold to men down.

One man was arrested just for crossing the street. The big brave cops even got rought with a old woman.

I heard that 8 people were arrested inside the hotel, and about 8 more outside.

I quess the cops thought we would leave when they started this but we started to yell back and didn't back down.

I am proud everyone who was there, from now on think of this protest when you think of Houston.

I am sorry I don't have any pictures to download but if you go to
Houston India Media pictures and video's will be there soon.

Also all the tv stations covered the protest, so video will be there also.

3. But will the strong-arming of protesters....
be covered by those in the local media, or will they gloss over or edit it out?

8. Ok, here is KHOU's spin on this:
And I quote:

Halliburton protesters arrested downtown; Cops injured

HOUSTON -- Houston police called for extra backup Wednesday morning after several protesters got out of hand outside the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Houston.



KHOU

Several protesters were taken into custody.

Dozens of protesters blocked the entrances to the hotel where Halliburton shareholders were holding a meeting. Police say a few others went inside the hotel and were blocking stairwells.


Fifteen people were arrested after refusing orders to get off the sidewalk and behind police barricades. Seven are charged with criminal trespassing for going inside the hotel, four are charged with assaulting police officers, three are charged with evading arrest and one is charged with assaulting a police horse.


A Houston police officer says she was hit in the face and pushed to the ground by protesters. Three other officers say they were kicked and punched during the standoff. All were treated for minor injuries.


"We respect everyone's right to demonstrate and to express their opinion in a peaceful manner," said HPD Lt. Robert Manzo. "However, one thing we will not tolerate is for anyone to break any laws while in the process of doing that."

<snip>

Do you believe this shit??? That is not what I saw on the indy media video!!

18. the cops are not telling the truth.
the female cop in question was out in the street, and we were on the sidewalk.

The cops got violent with us, I guess the Houston cops got their marching orders from inside the hotel.

The protest was loud but peaceful until the cops rode their horses sideways on the sidewalk into a large crowd of people, and they got violent with the people they arrested.

23. We were on a public sidewalk behind the barricades, the sidewalk was the
protest zone.

I did not see anyone on the outside blocking entrances to the hotel,

you could not get to the hotel, we were across the street.

I think they'd be very interested in hearing about people arrested for exercising their right to freely assemble.

I swear those are the same little fences we were kept behind when Cheney came to Honolulu, and the cops massed on the opposite side shoulder to shoulder. That positioning is very confrontational, all the moreso on horeback. Why are the police and fire departments so republican when it's their own funding this mass murdering sh*thead propagandist constitution-shredding civil rights-squashing treaty breaking budget busting leave-no-millionaire-behind administration is cutting?
Foolish!
Thank you!

17. I'm always late to the party
Shoot! I had a Dr.s appointment and couldn't make it to the protest until after 10:00. I had no idea that any of this had happened. Yikes!

But I did give an interview to one of the local news stations. "What brings you out today?" was the question. OOOOH I had a lot to say.

I had a funny sign, too. All the lettering on my signs was snipped up Deception Dollars outlined in black poster paint. On one side it said "It's all about the MONEY!" and on the other, "#1 War Profiteer
$18,000,000,000." On the $18 billion side of the sign, I didn't have enough room for all the zeros, so I had to add on another 8 inches to that part of my sign.

I made sure to point that out in my interview, and have the camera focus on it.

19. Good job, Houston!
And whether the local media cover it or not, the protestors in their group discovered a very dangerous fact: They have power. That is very bad news for Halliburton, its police, and the defenders of the status quo. They will do everything they can to try to convince you that you don't have power, that you don't matter, and that nobody really cares. Don't believe them, even if the teevee says it. Sometimes teevee lies.

You all can't even peacefully assemble without being trampled on?! This was all on public property as well!!! Nobody seemed to be bothering anybody execpt protesting by making a lot of noise and carrying signs. Horrfying to think what is going on in this country now. I'm proud though of those who risked it! :hug: I'm also glad protestors are smart to take video footages so you can use it in court.

Angry to see the police behave as if there's no question we live in a fascist nation, with moron-the-idiot-chimpy-king for a dictator, and his many aging imps making up his cabinet.

I like the guy with the drum in the video. He was razzin' the officer so much. Cool. B-)

24. Oh yeah ... and another thing
When I was in Buenos Aries last fall, their spring, there were large and small protests almost everyday at the National Congress Building and the presidential palace. At times the huge protests would walk from one government building to the other, stopping traffic for 20 minutes, or for hours. There were police, but not one disturbed the demonstrations.

What does this say for our country ... the US?

25. Holy crap.
You guys are brave. The cops were screaming and freaking out.

That one guy was holding his hands out and saying, "Calm down. Calm down, Officer." And the cop just rode his horse right up to the guy and forced him backwards.

The guy with the drum was brave. The guy in the white shirt taking video of the guy being held on the ground was brave. They were both right up there in clubbing range.

I saw LOTS of cameras. More video on this should be forthcoming.

The Houston Police Dep't and the media stations like KHOU are the reason we have to have alternate, independent media. Please support IndyMedia when and where you can. They are such brave patriots to document and report accurate accounts of incidents around the world.

49. the Halliburton protest
I am sitting here a day after the protest, very angry, but also very proud of what happened on Wednesday.

We won, the cops lost, more then they will ever know.

The cops were trying to break up the protest, thought we would cut and run. We are made of better stuff then that, we are not cowards the police were.

This attack by the Halliburton Police was planned in advance, I have never seen those big billy clubs here at any of the many protest we have had.

The cops were not wearing their regular police badges but fake ones with only 4 numbers, this took some planning in advance.

They wanted to attack us but not to be able to identify them, their plan didn't work, we have video and pictures.

It must be sad to be one those cops, to have so much hate, that you would attack people like that. This planned attack says much about the policeforce in Houston, it's full of bullies. The look of hate in their eyes, and fear to when we didn't back down. They had undercover cops trying to provoke us but that didn't work. I had an undercover cop get right in my face, yelling at me, I just backed up and walked away.


I came home a different person, something like this changes you.
I have talked to several people who were there and all of us would do it again, if the goal of the police was to stop protest, it didn't work. I am stronger, more determined then ever, I don't like bullies, never did.

We live in corporate owned world now, they can buy the police to do their dirty work.

If there are any Houston Police or should I say Halliburton Police reading this, you have no idea how much damage you have done to the
city's image. I have many email friends around the world, and they knew I was going to the protest, so they emailed me to see if I was OK. This attack on protesters was big news worldwide, my email friends were so disgusted when they saw the pictures and video.

I just wanted to thank all of you who answered this post, thank you so much for your kind words.

This attack on us by the police isn't going to stop us, it just made us stronger.

I wonder if dear old Cheney or one of his buddies in Halliburton paid them big bucks to protray cops or paid actual cops to do this job? I wonder why the fake badges....

53. I wondered about the fake badges also.
What was the point, there had to be at least 10 camcorders, and lots of digital cameras. We can prove the officers were there, we don't need their badge numbers when we have them on video or pictures.

I wondered to about the cops, they did know how to use horses to knock people down well, one poor women was barefoot, the horse broke her foot.

Big money had to be behind this attack, last year the protest was peaceful and a lot bigger. This year only a very small number of stockholders showed up for the meeting, our protest last year had a big effect.

54. Are you sure they were real police????
Could have been "Mercs" hired by Halliburton from Blackwater Security. Sounds like the basic "Fascist" modus operandi. Footage of Demo shown on OZ media tonight. Hard to believe there's some real people from Texas sticking up for the "Rest of the World". Thank you Brave people of Houston!!! Don't worry, outside of America you have "Massive" support. Keep up the great work. We'll continue to keep up the pressure on "The Bush Gang" abroad as well. Between us and you we'll get these "Fuckers"!

55. Halliburton protest
Howdy from Texas,

Thanks for the kind words, it means a lot.

You have seen the video's and maybe the video's from Indy Media, if not check it out, so you can see what happened. The cops whoever they were went crazy, in a instant. I was standing next to the exit door so I saw everything, no one ask us to move, but I did see a guy in a suit in doorway with a radio. I saw him nod his head to the cops and they charged in with their horses knocking people down. One woman had her foot broken when the horse steped on her foot.

I do believe some of the cops may have been mercs, some of them look kind of old and out of shape to be cops. It would make a lot of sense to use mercs to do the dirty work, saves on the law suits if you can't find the cops who did it. Most of them were Houston cops, I have been to lots protests and I can spot some them. Houston cops have a history of being violent, very violent.

I made eye contact with several of the cops, some were very angry, and some would not look at me.

We won, the cops didn't chase us away.

The camcorder and digital camera are your best friends at a protest, if we didn't have them the cops really would have went crazy and beat all of us.

I am glad to hear that this useless act of violence was shown in other countries, it is important.

There are a lot of good people in Texas we are not all republicans,
a lot of us are very liberal.

George Bush isn't a Texan, he comes from the northern part of the country, he just uses his fake accent to make himself sound folksy.

It was sad for this to happen, I know Halliburton must have been behind this, the protest last year was big, someone did't like it.

I think there were as many cops there as protesters, it was crazy.

The cops were lined up two deep, one row of cops standing and the
nazis in blue behind them. I don't know what they thought we were going to do.

I am afraid it will only get worse, a lot worse.
:hi:
