Anti-Wall Street protests in Boston have turned violent with police accused of beating war veterans during a peaceful demonstration.
The Boston Globe reports that arrested protesters were “put on [their] stomach, cable-tied, and dragged away …”
The AP reports the police were sent in to protect $150,000 worth of newly-planted shrubs at the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, site of a large Occupy Boston contingent. As news of the arrests spread across Twitter early Tuesday, several videos emerged that support the claim that members of Veterans for Peace were attacked by the police.

But it was not until after 1 a.m. ET Tuesday when hundreds of Boston and Transit police officers, some in riot gear, moved in on the group, handcuffing protesters and tearing down tents.
“At 1:30 this morning hundreds of police in full riot gear brutally attacked Occupy Boston,” the group said in a news release, adding that authorities “made no distinction between protesters, medics, or legal observers.”
“Civil disobedience will not be tolerated,” Boston Mayor Thomas Menino told the local Fox News affiliate in an interview early Tuesday.

There are those like Herman Cain who today called the #Occupy America kids Un-American for daring to make their voices heard. #Occupy America is not the first protest America has ever seen and it won’t be the last. Protest has been an American tradition right back to the days of Washington and Jefferson.
There is nothing Un-American about it. Another tradition equally as old, is for those in power to turn deaf ears and blind eyes toward protesters with legitimate complaints. King George III paid no heed to the Boston Tea party and wound up with a revolution. American history is full of examples of protests in one form or another that were ignored and turned ugly. It seems nobody in power would learn from their mistakes or the mistakes of their predecessors. Ignore protests and they tend to get out of hand#
Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has blasted the Occupy Wall Street protesters as anti-American and anti-capitalist. Picture: AFP Source: AFP
HERMAN CAIN IS AN IGNORANT FASCIST .OBVIOUSLY HERMAN CAIN DOES NOT UNDERSTAND HOW CAPITALISM WORKS OR THE AMERICAN CONSTITUTION
HERMAN THIS IS HOW CAPITALISM IS SUPPOSED TO WORK. NOTICE IT HELPS IF YOU HAVE CAPITAL (NOT DEBT) AND IT IS BEST TO MAKE MONEY BEFORE AWARDING A BONUS.
1.Availability of credit allows money to flow between savers and borrowers.
2.Resources and funds are allocated to various projects or investments during a boom phase.
3.Eventually borrowing becomes excessive and leads to malinvestment,
4.At this stage, adherence to free market theory would allow for an efficient cleansing period and a healthy recovery period. How? Irresponsible and unprofitable businesses fail. Bad debts get liquidated. Excess resources go on sale, flow into more stable ventures and pool together with more profitable resources controlled by healthy corporations or entities
SEE ,AMERICAN BANKS ARE IRRESPONSIBLE AND UNPROFITABLE FAILED BUSINESSES. THEY GET LIQUIDATED NOT BAILED OUT!!
Socialist Republican Corruption of Capitalist Free Market Mechanisms
Fascist Business System Breeds Corruption & Receivership
Gold and Silver Breakout as Fascist Business Model Crumbles, Mortgage Market Fraud
WHAT HERMAN CAIN SUPPORTS IS A FASCIST BUSINESS MODEL THAT CREATES DEBT AND AWARDS BONUSES FOR LOSES AND LOOSERS
….ITS NOT CAPITALISM HERMAN CAIN SUPPORTS ,ITS DEBTORISM!! WHAT AN IGNORANT FASCIST BASTARD , LIAR AND POLITION
ANDREW JACKSON was the ONE president that CLEARED AMERICAN DEBT ,when faced with financial ruin How did he manage it?
“The Bank is trying to kill me, but I shall kill it!”
ANDREW JACKSONS VIEW OF THE BANKS….NO BAILOUT.
“You are a nest of vipers and thieves, and by the grace of the almighty God, I will root you out!”
ANDREW JACKSON’S VIEW ON CORPORATIONS
Corporations have neither bodies to kick nor souls to damn.
ANDREW JACKSONS VIEW ON THE BRIGHTEST AND THE BEST
Hemans gallows ought to be the fate of all such ambitious men who would involve their country in civil wars, and all the evils in its train that they might reign & ride on its whirlwinds & direct the Storm– The free people of these United States have spoken, and consigned these wicked demagogues to their proper doom.
LISTEN HERMAN ,YOU PUBLIC SERVANT!!
YOUR TAXPAY MASTER HAS SPOKEN!!
NOW DO YOUR F*CKING JOB AND SERVE THE PUBLIC!!
…YOU DO NOT WANT TO END UP HANGING FROM A LAMP POST…IT’S WHAT HAPPENS TO FASCISTS THAT DO NOT LISTEN!!
Mussilini was then hung upside down on a lamp-post on a Milan street
Boston: Time to Call them “Pigs” Again
By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor
Veterans Today is a publication for those who wore the uniform to defend their countries,
What went on in Boston and New York has made me more than ashamed. I saw it coming, the deterioration in law enforcement in the US, that “us v. them” that had infected so many bad police departments
There is no limit to how far Wall Street will go to defend its parasitic ways. It took 24 hours for proof of Wall Street concocting the Iran terror alert, the phony assassination plot to come to light.
As with other terror issues, the Detroit Crotch Bomber, 9/11, 7/7 and now this one, the money trail is easy to follow. (Threats toward Iran were generated, we have confirmed, to push up flagging oil prices due to low demand and the glut of oil we are now finding almost everywhere we look.)
None of us condone what we have seen here in the United States. This is the height of unprofessionalism. What do we talk about? We talk about the rigged justice system that lets off financial crooks, lets off spies with political connections, that blocks investigations into terrorism.
The people who wear the uniform, who are prepared to give their lives to defend America are easy picking. Those of us who know Afghanistan well, and I certainly do, the players there, the folks in Pakistan, know how utterly insane that war is.
Billions in heroin is being shipped out, reports coming in from our veterans aren’t just about “walking through the poppies” but loading trucks, guarding heroin processing. Other more classified accounts that I will list as unsubstantiated, involve contracting firms, not “mercenaries,” these are quality people, friends, who have seen “too much.” Even I won’t talk about it.
No American hero is safe, not Pat Tillman, shot down by Americans in Afghanistan, not the veterans attacked by police in Boston
There is a reason I mention Afghanistan. There were no “hijackers” there. Solid sources went public awhile ago, Osama bin Laden was never a terrorist and has been dead for nearly 10 years.
I heard it from his CIA handlers, I heard it from top Marine Corps officals, I heard it from those who briefed General Petraeus, Secretary Gates and Secretary of State Clinton. I know they had been told, those who told them, told me.
We went to Afghanistan to create a war, not to free people. The Taliban ruled Afghanistan because America wanted the Taliban to rule Afghanistan. This is the history, the real history.
When it was profitable to run up hundreds of billions in a useless war, we attacked on no premise whatsoever, starting a war that would last even longer than Vietnam.
It is a war where a billion dollars a month in “nation building” funds is stolen, according to the General Accounting Office, and a billion dollars a week of heroin is shipped out of the country, according to the Russian government.
Vietnam was started by Wall Street. The “Global War on Terror” was orchestrated there, the real planners of 9/11 work there, part of the endless “revolving door,” Wall Street to Washington and back.
When an American fights for America he has to fight Wall Street, he has to fight Boston too. The Koch Brothers, the dark center of the worldwide conspiracy against America live there, Rupert Murdoch, homes in dozens of countries, he is “Boston” too.
Now we watch Republican candidates fall all over each other, they can’t say enough about protecting the banks or giving money to finance Israel’s wars or about “winning” our own, wars we lost before they even began.
No war is ever won, not by anyone but Wall Street.
The demonstrators who are in the streets across America, the “99%” that really represent the people of the United States, what the Tea Party should have been, are there for us. Against them is the “1%” with their congress, with their unconstitutional laws, with their crooked courts, with their rigged elections and with their police departments whose only real purpose anymore is looking the other way.
Occupy Los Angeles
Footage from October 6th, 2011 in Downtown Los Angeles at the Occupy LA protest at City Hall.
NO news media was present at the event but across the street there were numerous news vans covering the Michael Jackson murder trial.
Glass Steagall speech towards the end.
“Now the Youth are doing the job that the baby Boomers did not do”
Some advice to the kids on the street:
Ignore the messengers. They are only there to give you more Obama style false hope. Talk is cheap. Don’t pack up and go home on a promise from anybody. Wait until you see some action. More important than that, in order to successfully bring about change your protest must cost somebody dearly just like it did in 1968. But remember, that doesn’t have to mean you must get violent, though that is an option that should not be dismissed out of hand.
The 19th century Prussian general Von Clauswitz said that the aim of conflict is to make the conflict so painful and hopeless for your adversary, that it is easier for him to give you what you want than to continue opposing you. What you have to figure out is who exactly you are fighting and how you go about hurting them. I’m not necessarily talking about violent conflict. There are many ways to make an opponent feel pain. Causing your opponent to lose baskets full of money may indeed be more effective than an AK47 in this case.
If you can stay long enough to make the powers understand that there is no hope of ending the conflict on their terms. If you can further sap their morale by making the conflict build over time with more people, more signs, more inconvenience as every day goes by.
If you can resist the urge to take the token olive branch of nothing but empty words. If you can make your opponent hurt, and I mean really hurt to the point they can’t sleep at night knowing tomorrow the pain may be worse. You will win this conflict and get what you want.
THE GOVERNMENT IS A CENTRALISED VIOLENT DOGMATIC INSTITUTION, ITS AN OUT-DATED DESTRUCTIVE DINOSAUR ,WHO’S TIME HAS LONG PAST.
ITS TIME FOR REAL CHANGE WE CAN REALLY BELIEVE IN
The truth from ANONYMOUS who organized the protests:
■We are a decentralized non-violent resistance movement, which seeks to restore the rule of law and fight back against the organized criminal class.
■One-tenth of one percent of the population has consolidated wealth in unprecedented fashion and launched an all-out economic war against 99.9% of the population.
■We are not affiliated with either wing of the two-party oligarchy. We seek an end to the corrupted two-party system by ending the campaign finance and lobbying racket.
■Above all, we aim to break up the global banking cartel centered at the Federal Reserve, International Monetary Fund, Bank of International Settlement and World Bank.
■We demand that the primary dealers within the Federal Reserve banking system be broken up and held accountable for rigging markets and destroying the global economy, effective immediately.
■As a first sign of good faith we demand Ben Bernanke step down as Federal Reserve chairman.
■Until our demands are met and a rule of law is restored, we will engage in a relentless campaign of non-violent, peaceful, civil disobedience.
■In our next communication we will announce Operation Empire State Rebellion.
STOP THE POLITICAL CHEERLEADER ,SAVE THE WORLD
SUPPORT THE PROTESTORS
END THE BAILOUTS
END THE ILLEGAL WARS
