and is gaining momentum both locally and nationally. Many more rallies and escalating actions are planned for the coming week. The occupation will continue indefinitely.

The NYPD attacked the crowd of peaceful protesters and conducted mass arrests of marchers near Union Square with orange netting, sweeping up Reports of some injuries.

#OCCUPYWALLSTREET is a people powered movement for democracy that began in America on September 17 with an encampment in the financial district of New York City. Inspired by the Egyptian Tahrir Square uprising and the Spanish acampadas, we vow to end the monied corruption of our democracy.

#occupwallstreet is currently located at Liberty Square, formerly named Zucotti Park.

If the 99% want to be taken seriously, they should boycott ALL purchases for several days.  Don't buy ANYTHING, not even a pack of gum!  Try starving the beast.

When the miltary and police break on racial lines is when we go yugoslavia and we choke the derelict niggers, the illegals, and ESPECIALLY the enabling jews in the cities they have polluted for 40 years.

We go after the jewish neighborhoods.  Cut off the head of the snake.

Lists have been made and disseminated.

Hey...all this hateful speech is nuts!  These young people are exercising rights guaranteed by our consitution and at least they are out there...making their mark, being heard...at least at z-hedge.  No reason for hating one another.  Pull out your credit cards and send these idealistic, unselfish folks some pizza!   Our country is changing - let's not be turning on one another; let's be smart, compassionate and forward - looking.

Fascist liberal NYC.  The most intolerant Obam-loving & supporting scum.  A city and state who still love the muslim.

Testimony of Marriner Eccles to the Committee on the Investigation of Economic Problems in 1933
.."Before effective action can be taken to stop the devastating effects of the depression, it must be recognised that the breakdown of our present economic system is due to the failure of our political and financial leadership to intelligently deal with the money problem. In the real world there is no cause nor reason for the unemployment with its resultant destitution and suffering of fully one-third of our entire population. We have all and more of the material wealth which we had at the peak of our prosperity in the year 1929. Our people need and want everything which our abundant facilities and resources are able to provide for them. The problem of production has been solved, and we need no further capital accumulation for the present, which could only be utilized in further increasing our productive facilities or extending further foreign credits. We have a complete economic plant able to supply a superabundance of not only all the necessities of our people, but the comforts and luxuries as well. Our problem, then, becomes one purely of distribution. This can only be brought about by providing purchasing power sufficiently adequate to enable the people to obtain the consumption goods which we, as a nation, are able to produce. The economic system can serve no other purpose and expect to survive." ......

Just another milestone that occurs in the 1st stage of a revolution, which most people won't recognize until its nearly finished.   This leads directly into stage 2, and if your not ready for that, its very hard to keep a revolution from morphing into stage 3, its most violent apparition.   The 'New American Revolution' will hopefully be in the bookstores sometime in October with a clear plan to "Front-Run" the revolution, allowing America to capitalize upon it, and use it as a springboard to a reformation of America.    But nothing is guaranteed in this world, is it?

You can join the millions of Americans who have taken their money out of the markets before the Crash.

On the the first video the two girls up front are the ones you see later on the ground.

A white shirt fuck head cop walked up to them and many others and just sprayed them while the bald headed jerk held them in with his net.

They were on the sidewalks, not on the street and simply walking when this happened.

Mayor Bloomberg has a major problem when his white shirt cops abuse the law and it's citizens.

We are no longer a free nation when you can be herded and abused for NO reason.

In Pennsylvania, if you do not yeild to Pedestrians you will be ticketed. Even on mainstreet state highways.

These people were on a sidewalk for Christ's sake.  America is now a hell hole.

We had the same shit over here, in civilized Germany ( Stuttgart 21 ). Documents destroyed, courtesy of YT.

Deutsche Bundesbahn is up to build an useless underground railwaystation, for 5 bn. €, just to provide the space for RE paradise for the ex-Mayor and the well connected predators.

With taxpayer money, of course.

Lot of children beaten ( in the afternoon ), an old man lost his eye struck with watercannon in the face.

The baboon on coke who brutalized the protesters get away with it.


America is not alone - the whole world became an shithole.

We should direct these assholes to the media buildings and the synagogues.

Synagogues?  You want to incite violence there?

You said nothing about the media organs.

Put these protesters in uniforms. Make them appear more unified. Equip them properly with training and get this roadshow started. The only thing the banking thugs respect is an army greater, more powerful and better trained than the armies they afford to protect their fraud.

We'll get there eventually. It takes good quality men and women, it takes financial support and it takes a whole lot of commitment and sacrifice.

Good job to the brave men and women making an effort today in NYC.

The entire US is a free speech zone.  It should also be something to strive for EVERYWHERE else. If money can be interpreted as speech then no permit is ever needed anywhere.

At 21 seconds, you see a hand spraying the stuff from the right.  When the cameras pan out, there are two cops walking away, one putting something in his pocket.  They get out of the picture fast!  The cops in white are the ones that sprayed it!

blindman's picture

second 19 frame. the old timer to the right in white, he done it.

. question is why and to what purpose? who benefits?

Not one good beating in any of those videos...you call that Police repression? ...please, there's more voilence in the parking lot of any major sporting event.

I didn't see one thing in any of those videos that bothered me.


Downgraded's picture

If you even dare to say that these vids are tame and policeman aren't brutal, the crew in here will come after you.  Nothing but a bunch of failed day-traders who are LOSING THEIR ASSES and want violence in the streets (not for a non-corrupt system) but b/c they are anti-semites and their own selfish reasons.  All cry-babies...the lot of them.

Feel free to just post this from now on, as it sums up all your comments. Also, a proper troll needs subtlety to be successful, which you lack in spades.

Yeah, this thread sure did bring out the trolls.

"I didn't see one thing in any of those videos that bothered me."

Sieg HEIL!

A bunch of cops who would rather be home with their families had to put up with a bunch of whiney ass college kids whos Socialist professors have them down protesting.  The guy protesters are doing it  to be cool and get chicks...the more attention they get from cops the more likely they are to get laid.

The level of whining from most you guys about about a protest that has a few docile takedowns, no blood, nobody even looking like they got hurt and you're calling it the Third Reich...your'e a bunch of fucking pussy ass losers...

SteveOoooo's picture

"A bunch of cops who would rather be home with their families"

That's a grand idea!!

For all those who can't resist the urge to harm other people - YOU SHOULD resign and go home to your family!!

Otherwise please stop whining and DO YOUR FUCKING JOB - without brutalizing "the civilians". 

Freddie's picture

The cops are all getting overtime plus any money they can skim or shake down on the side.  Liberal shit city and state that loves the Islamic golden child from kenya.

Wawawa...brutalized...please.  Go take a hit off your inhaler...i've seen girls hit harder than those cops did.

Why should thye resign...so a bunch of snot nose jackasses can run amok through their city?

you make me laugh at your wimpiness...

. . . i've seen girls hit harder than those cops did.

Were you doing the hitting?

LOL, good one but no.

"i've seen girls hit harder than those cops did."

You mean "i've hit girls harder than those cops did."?

There.  Fixed it for ya Officer Marks.

MarkS's picture

Ohh, hahaha. Nice rhetorical juxtaposition you wuss.

Again, show me some real violence and repression and I'll reconsider.  But, those videos do not show repression or brutalization.  Cordoning off a group of protestors and someone using mace - we can't tell who because both sides got it in their eyes, a couple of arm bar takedowns...come on - not even a single whack with a baton?

Look, every kid had their camera and camera phone recording and that is the most repressive and brutal video they can come up with - out of 2,000 or so camera phones? 

And, what would make your lame ass think that those cops are doing it for the Bankers or Obama or anybody else.  they were doing their freakin job - crowd control and making sure that destruction and looting didn't break out like it has in the UK or Seattle or other places.

You and your arguments are pathetic.


SteveOoooo's picture

Yeah?  Right.

"Just a little brutality never hurt anyone."

"You sheeple just need to get used to it."

"Stop bleeding you wuss, We'll tell you when it hurts."

Sieg Heil.

They ALL hate Jews in here.  You can't believe some of the things they say.  They are pussy-ass losers.  Crying about their margin calls cuz they thought they were so fucking smart to do their T/A and read tea leaves.  And still lost it all.  Good luck arguing with these mean, selfish mother fuckers.

Hitler was right about everything.  He has been validated in the last 20 years.

Go put your head in a fucking oven and go gas yourself you fuck.  Waaaaaa.....waaaaaaa.   Crybaby!  What's the matter?  Got slammed on your gold holdings last week?  Margin calls?  Waaaaaaaa....blame the Jews.......waaaaaa.....

Outlaw Of The Wasteland's picture

No. I am quite happy with the progression of events.

Lord Koos's picture

Wow what a bunch of useless armchair generals we have here, telling the protesters how they could have done it better.  Listen assholes, at least they are doing something that is possibly more effective that typing opinions on ZH

You should kill yourself, commie shithead.  Your whore mother sharted a loser.

the 4th reich crushes yet more protest against the bankster run obama reign of terror....how dare you fucking boobs demand to be heard or object to the imperious rockefeller-rothschild tyrants??

america is in desperate need of regime change and those asshole cops are every bit a part of the problem....but they act on orders from higher ups...cop=pig

Why would I call 911.  It would take a fucking cop an hour to get there.  In the mean time I will have decided whether to shoot the SOB with my Glock or my Kahr. 



Downgraded's picture

Well, we finally agree on something!  Glock 40, .357, 12 gauge or my .38 w/hollow-points.  One will do.

Downgraded's picture

Yeah and when some bad fucker breaks into your cushy crib, your ass will be on 911 faster than anyone.  "Oh, please Mr. officer.  Help me" -  waaaaaa.....waaaaaaaa.  Fuckin' cry baby. 

Rhodin's picture

Maybe i do call 911.    Because if i cap his ass, put him in the deer freezer for a bit till he firms up, then run him through the wood chipper over by the pig pen. so he can help with feeding the actual pigs....Well...that would be WRONG!!

Zionists always used blacks to move forward their agenda and use white soldiers in middle east or to beat up other gentiles.


See the truth

people who control banking and media also control their own jews to hate non-jews and see everything through the eyes of anti-semitism. Must see rare documentary....BECAUSE AN ISRAELI JEW FILMED THE DOCUMENTARY BECAUSE HE WAS SICK OF HIS OWN SHIT.
