NO ONE IS SAFE FROM #OWS! – Occupy protesters interrupt Obama’s speech

Occupy Wall Street protesters interrupted Obama‘s job speech at a high school in Manchester, New Hampshire. They started shouting their statement and had been cut off by Obama supporters. Entire OWS statement was passed to reporters :”Over 4000 peaceful protesters have been arrested. While bankers continue to destroy the American economy. You must stop the assault on our 1st amendment rights. Your silence sends a message that police brutality is acceptable. Banks got bailed out. We got sold out.”

Anonymous: Operation Horizon – Dec. 17th

Greetings from Anonymous,

On December 17th, we invite every Occupy protester, Anon, and Citizen to march in a day of solidarity and remembrance.

December 17 will mark the anniversary of many historic events: three months since the beginning of the Occupy movement; the one-year anniversary of the death of Mohamed Bouazizi, the Tunisian man whose self-immolation initiated the first of protests which became the Tunisian Revolution, and eventually cascaded into the Arab Spring; and 24 years since the birth of Bradley Manning, the army private accused of leaking classified information to Wikileaks. Manning’s first hearing is scheduled for Dec 16, 586 days after his arrest, where he will face a military panel who will decide if he will go to trial.

Bradley Manning’s alleged transfer of sensitive information to Wikileaks allowed the organization to release diplomatic cables confirming suspected corruption at high levels of the Tunisian government. The outrage over the circumstances surrounding Mohamed Bouazizi’s death was intensified after these revelations, and small protests quickly turned into an uprising which toppled a long-standing regime. Tunisia is now recognized as the inspiration for the Arab Spring; uprisings such as those which shook Egypt‘s Mubarak from power, and ended both Gaddafi’s regime and life.

The passion expressed by those in the Arab world inspired many activists in the west to stand together. The American Autumn began on September 17 with Occupy Wall Street, and similar protests soon erupted across the United States, as well as internationally. Occupy protesters peacefully marched, sang, danced, and drummed their way into the soul of their respective cities, but have often been met with hostility and aggression from law enforcement. In response, Occupiers have remained peaceful and continued protesting.

Operation Horizon will remind the world that we are united and that together, we will not fail.

Learn about this year of change, march on City Hall and end the night with a vigil for those who have sacrificed so much.

Stand for the truth and solidarity. Know how we got here, and remember those who have fallen.

We are Anonymous
We are Bradley Manning
We are Arab Spring
We are the 99%
We do not forgive
We do not forget
Expect us.

Is Freedom of the press under attack at OWS movements?

Members of the press have been harassed, assaulted and ever arrested for covering the Occupy Wall Street movement. Since the movement began a total of 26 reporters have found themselves behind bars. Thirteen of the26 reporters were arrested last week in New York City. Is freedom of the press a thing of the past? Susie Cagle, independent journalist, tells us what it was like to get arrested for covering the Occupy movement.

#OWS Weekend Wrap-up

In Oakland, cops cleared an encampment located at 19th and Telegraph Avenue this morning. Despite the fact that police showed up in riot gear, barring protesters from their camp, no arrests or injuries were reported. In San Francisco, six demonstrators were arrested and many still fear that the main Occupy camp at Justin Herman Plaza, will suffer the same fate as the one that was raided in front of the Federal Reserve building. Occupy Boston has been labeled one of the best established locations throughout the country. A temporary court order has prevented police from breaking down the Dewey Square encampment within Boston’s financial district.
