The Canadian Civil Liberties Association report, "Breach of the Peace," notes concerns that POLICE INFORMANTS may have supported the VANDALISM . http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/story/2011/02/27/g20-report.html


Film Police Officers with no name badges. This is why

URGENT WARNING: Look out for Police Provocateurs

The Black Bloc Tactic

FYI: Black bloc is not an organization, it is a tactic, and yes, the police have historically used it to shut down peaceful protests, Police have worn masks/disguised themselves to hide their identity, and once one act of vandalism happens it can now be legally termed an "unlawful assembly" now MASS ARRESTS will occur (such as Toronto G20), they can and will resort to force, kettling, tear gas, pepper spray and other violent means to disperse everyone at the otherwise peaceful assembly. That's why its important to film events as they happen for video evidence of possible provocateur tactics.

"The undercover police officers who infiltrated two activist communities in southern Ontario played key roles in PLANNING the G20 protests -- going so far as identifying targets for mayhem, The Globe and Mail has learned.
**One officer helped develop a list of locations for protesters to congregate at or VANDALIZE ."**

G20 activists say they feel "betrayed" by 'Orwellian secret police'

Some G20 activists held a press conference Tuesday claiming they were "betrayed" by undercover police officers as part of an "Orwellian" infiltration in the lead-up to the international summit last June. The activists, led by Centre for Police Accountability founder Davin Charney, outlined instances in which undercover cops posed as protest organizers. One young woman from Guelph expressed anger over the fact she was unknowingly roommates with an officer pretending to be an activist.

Gov. Scott Walker called for Provocateurs/Black Bloc to Disrupt peaceful Protests

"Before this victory is won, some will have to get thrown in jail some more, but we shall overcome. Don't worry about us before the victory is won, some of us will lose jobs, but we shall overcome. Before the victory is won, some will be misunderstood and called bad names and dismissed as rebel-rousers and agitators But we shall overcome. And I'll tell you why.
We shall overcome because the arch of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice." - Martin Luther King

1. Ahhh good to know the government

can be counted on over the decades to do the same stupid things and that many of the people who see this reported, the violent protesters, will believe it really is violent protesters.

Keep on with your plans as long as you can.

Sending support from Kansas.

2. Infiltrators, too


One simply has to be careful. At one protest a man came up to me and said that we ought to place a bomb on that pipeline.

He looked like a retired FBI type.

Infiltrators of Occupy are everywhere. In GAs, too.

5. Remembering SDS conventions and meetings

Organizers often included firearms and other weapons workshops specifically to attract the infiltrators and agents away from the real workshops.
