Police Crackdowns on Occupy Protests from Oakland to New York Herald the “New Military Urbanism”

Wordpress doesnt let me embed ‘ great Democracy Now’ videos.. follow the link!

After a wave of raids across the country in which police in riot gear broke up Occupy Wall Street encampments and arrested protesters, Oakland Mayor Jean Quan acknowledged in an interview with the BBC that she participated in a conference call with officials from 18 cities about how to deal with the Occupy movement.

As police forces violently crack down on protests across the United States and Europe, we look at the increasing influence of military technology on domestic police forces. Stephen Graham is professor of Cities and Society at Newcastle University in the U.K. His book is “Cities Under Siege: The New Military Urbanism.” “What the Occupy movement is so powerful at is demonstrating that by occupying public spaces around the world, and particularly these extremely symbolic public spaces, it’s reasserting that the city is the foundation space for democracy,” Graham says.

Occupy Wall St EVICTED..ReOccupy NOW

Occupy Wall Street camp in New York (14 Nov 2011)

Once again the brutal criminal 1% set out to DESTROY anything they can’t control.. Starting with Free Speech and Occupy Wall  Street

Police in New York have launched a pre-dawn operation to clear the Occupy Wall Street camp in Zuccotti Park.

The city mayor’s office said on Twitter that the protesters should “temporarily leave and remove tents and tarps” but could return once the park was clear.

Occupy Wall Street was set up in September to protests against economic inequality and had been followed by dozens of protests around the world.

A camp in Oakland, California was cleared overnight on Monday.

The New York Times said that as the operation in Zuccotti Park began at about 01:00 (06:00 GMT), police gave an announcement, saying: “The city has determined that the continued occupation of Zuccotti Park poses an increasing health and fire safety hazard.”

Leaflets were also handed out saying protesters would be allowed to return once the clearance had taken place, but not to bring camping equipment.

This means NO CAMPING and its impossible to stay on the NY streets in winter with no protection

The Eviction is similar to what happened in Barcelona 3 months ago when the Occupy Camp was cleared by brutal police by surprise at night, with the excuse of ‘cleaning’. On that occasion thousands of people took back the square the same day, and videos of police violence caused a surge in popular support.

NH3 Cost benefit analysis 1. draft report

Conversion of London Buses to zer0 % of CO2 and toxic gas emissions.

This diagram is the JACKPOT for those really seeking an answer to CO2 and Climate Change. An ‘off the shelf’ NH3 production process is CO2 free and makes a fuel that is also Co2 free and produces no toxic gases when burnt. Available from http ://www.protonchemie.com/NFUEL.html

London Buses manages one of the largest bus networks in the world. Approximately 7,500 iconic red buses carry more than six million passengers each weekday on a network serving all parts of Greater London.

London buses covered 468m km in 2008  http://www.tfl.gov.uk/…pdf

468m km X 1.3kg =  608.4million kg p.a…. that`s about 608,400 tons of  CO2 a year saved converting to CO2 free fuel! Continue reading London Buses could be pollution and CO2 free for $37m. report

STOP all psychotic religious/capitalist/nationalist States

Iran has never attacked another country, the US, dozens.

Iran is obviously getting the bomb, but it has never yet attacked another country.(Unlike the US which has dozens of times). Right now Iran is controlled by religious nutters, just like Israel and the partly the US, who are threatening to BOMB its 78 million diverse and  innocent people ‘into the stone age’. The people of Iran, Israel and the US should get together to smash the religious, capitalist and State institutions that threaten to burn them alive and blow their children to bits.

Pressured by the US, the UN’s atomic watchdog will say this week that  Iran is developing nuclear arms .

The maniacs who control Israeli have said again they want to bomb Iran, which is surrounded by aggressive and psychotic Nuclear States..Israel, Pakistan, India and the good old USA.

The media is packed with commercial glorification of WAR.

WHY WHY WHY??  this is MADNESS.

It seems the US financial empire is tottering, despite its efforts to boost its ‘military industry’ with multiple wars, causing

up to a million dead bodies, just in Iraq. When I googled images with the tag ‘insane war industry’ I came up instead with 1000’s of photos publicizing

wonderful electronic war games and films. THIS is just OBSCENE MANIPULATION

War is the Logic of Capital, it seems,  the modern State will stop at nothing to hold onto power, and the religious state is just a horror story.

The 1% need a new war, the infiltration, assassinations and black ops have already begun.. It remains to be seen if Obama can stop them, or if a horrific incident can be blamed on the Iranis, sweeping the way clear on a tide of nationalist hysteria.

WAR POSTPONED??

Reading lots of articles it seems to me that no country dares yet to start the Irani war.  All are playing a criminally dangerous game of ‘Chicken’ to satisfy their nationalist, capitalist and religious supporters, but not really desperate enough to take that crazy step, unless some sector jumps the gun…. LET’S HOPE That’s True..
