UK Authorities re-classify the Occupy Movement as “Domestic Terrorists”. Will The United States follow their lead?

The Occupy Movement is scaring the crap out of Conservatives, Right-Wingers, and The Corporate world; and it seems they are trying any underhanded tactic to undermine the movements success.  The latest salvo in the Anti-Occupy crusade comes from London, where The City of London Police have now reclassified the Occupy Movement, as “Domestic Terrorists” on par with Al Qaeda, and many United States Law Enforcement Agencies including local police departments, across the country may soon be following their lead.

 Seriously, we all remember images of Gun toting Tea party protesters brandishing their weapons at nearly every rally during the Health Care debate, yet they were never classified as extremist or even a threat, but the unarmed peaceful Occupy protesters somehow pose a terrorism threat?  What The Fuck Ever!

A Report from London’s “The Independent” states….

The City of London Police force was facing criticism last night after including the Occupy London demonstration in a letter warning businesses about potential terrorist threats.

The letter, a “Terrorism/Extremism Update”, lists al-Qa’ida, the Colombian dissidents Farc, and Belarusian terrorists who bombed the Minsk underground. It also lists Occupy London under the heading “Domestic”.

It states: “It is likely that activists aspire to identify other locations to occupy, especially those they identify with capitalism. City of London Police has received a number of hostile reconnaissance reports concerning individuals who would fit the anti-capitalist profile. All are asked to be vigilant regarding suspected reconnaissance, particularly around empty buildings.”

An Occupy London spokesman said: “Activism is not a crime and the desire to participate in democratic decision-making should not be a cause for concern for the police in any free society.

“An institution that confuses active citizens with criminals and equates al-Qa’ida with efforts to reimagine the city is an institution in danger of losing its way.”

A police source said the letter was authentic but was poorly worded and never meant to imply demonstrators posed a terrorist threat.

A spokesman for City of London Police said: “City of London Police works with the community to deter and detect terrorist activity and crime in the City in a way that has been identified nationally as good practice. We’ve seen crime linked to protests in recent weeks, notably around groups entering office buildings, and with that in mind we continue to brief key trusted partners on activity linked to protests.”

Occupy Melbourne Female Protester Violently Stripped by Police

Yesterday, at 8:45am a peaceful Occupy Melbourne Protester was violently stripped of her protest costume and disgarded on the ground in her bra and panties. The individual in question was part of the Occupy Melbourne protest and was dressed in a protest costume made from a converted tent. The significance of the costume was to hightlight restrictions placed on protesters staging a 24/7 protest in Flagstaff Gardens.

The protester was surrounded by at least 4 Melbourne City Council officers and 8 Victorian police officers. Her movement was restricted by the formation of officers surrounding her and she was subsequently restrained as officers proceeded with aggressively removing her costume. At each stage she declared that she did not consent or feel comfortable with the actions of the council and police officers, stating that this was a sexual assault.”This is not consensual.’

Her requests and declarations were ignored as officers continued to rip and jossle her costume and person. A knife was requested and used by MCC Officers as the Protest Costume was cut from her body. The remaining severed costume was violently torn from her body while the protester herself was disgarded, semi-naked and crying on the ground as Vic police and MCC officers walked away with the costume.

NO EFFORT was made to assess her health or welling after the incident.

Michelle Bachmann to Occupy Movement: “I feel your frustration and pain!” Yeah Whatever!

Michelle Bachmann appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show, tries to garner the Occupy movements empathy by saying she feels our frustration.
