Greetings from the Heart of the Klamath!
We witnessed a terrorist attack on peaceful citizens last night. Did any of you call the police? I urge you all to call UCPD (510) 642‑6760, and the Berkeley Police (510) 981-5900, to report these crimes.
Peaceful demonstrators on the UC Berkeley campus were attacked by a terrorist organization for demanding an end to cuts in education and for a return of control of our government to the 99%. They were met by an organized gang of thugs, dressed in riot gear who represent the interests of their 1% masters.
Add LESS IS MORE to it and we have 2011. C’mon students. Pay more for your education while we give you less services and classes! We’ll still keep our paid thugs in the UCPD, and we’ll still serve the 1% on the UC Regents Board!
From KTVU in Oakland:
(Who edits this stuff??? I’ve edited the following text so it makes much more sense:)
UC police clash with Occupy protesters at Sproul Hall
“UC police in riot gear moved on several Occupy protesters gathered outside of Sproul Hall on the Berkeley campus Wednesday night, taking down tents the protesters had set up in a tense confrontation.”
In other words:
UC police in riot gear moved on several Occupy protesters gathered outside Sproul Hall on the Berkeley campus Wednesday night in a tense confrontation taking down tents the protesters had set up.
“Approximately 50 UC police officers in riot helmet with visors approached the group of protesters at around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday night, prodding the students and activists who had formed a human chain with batons as the gathered crowd chanted “Stop beating students!” “Peaceful protest!” and “The whole world is watching!”
Approximately 50 UC police officers in riot helmets with visors approached the group of protesters at around 9:30 p.m.
prodding the students and activists with batons. Protestors had formed a human chain and were chanting “Stop beating students!” “Peaceful protest!” and “The whole world is watching!
At points the shoving between the two groups intensified with police pushing forward and wielding their batons to the outcry of the protesters.
I ask you….Does this look like “prodding”? Does this look like “Shoving between two groups”?
University of California system wide student strike approved next Tuesday!
Better grease your batons and rubber bullets UCPD. The whole world will be watching YOU.
From The Oakland Tribune:
Citing excessive force and free speech violations by police during protests in Oakland and at UC Berkeley, the Berkeley City Council this week refused a mutual aid agreement with university police and nixed agreements with other police agencies on regional domestic surveillance.
Heard early this morning:
“There was more property damage in last night’s riots at Penn State than in all 100+ OWS protests combined”
Also heard this last night:
“Gingrich says OWS protestors have no clue about history.”
Calico Blackie says:
Oh, that’s rich! Newt, I AM an historian. Perhaps you should read your history and discover more about Benedict Arnold. He sold us out, just like you and your cronies over at Fox “news” are selling us out.
Persistent criticism of Occupy Wall Street for failing to specify demands has helped obscure the fact that groups of people within the movement have been mobilizing around concrete political goals.
The latest example is a small group of occupiers who will set out tomorrow on a 230-mile march from New York to Washington, where they plan to arrive on the eve of the deadline of the congressional supercommittee.
Meanwhile, we’re being “set up” again:
The British media say Israel may launch an aerial strike on Iranian nuclear facilities as early as next month. The offensive will receive support from the US, the speculation goes. The attack is meant to decapitate Iran’s nuclear program, which a recent report by the UN atomic watchdog said may have a military component.
The Daily Mail cites British government sources as saying that the cabinet expects Israel to attack Iran “sooner rather than later.” “We’re expecting something as early as Christmas, or very early in the New Year,” a Foreign Office source is cited as saying.
Calico Blackie says:
It appears as if the 1% is trying to start another “for profit” war, with the added bonus of getting rid of surplus population. The “surplus population” is US. Don’t fall for the lies of their propaganda machine. KEEP TRACK OF THIS STORY no matter how much the corporate media tries to distract us with Lohan, Snooki, news about Disney’s “pop tarts” and other meaningless bullshit.
Speak up! Protest! Exercise your Constitutional rights no matter what Coulter, Hannity, Limbaugh and the other “Benedict Arnolds” say.
We are the 99%
