Maybe you should do something now

Dear Americans, you seem to have a serious problem growing in your country. I know, there are a lot of things going on, and here in Europe the same thing start to happen with a ~3 year delay. But when the pentagon defines demonstrations as 'Low-Level Terrorism', then you know that you are fucked. Do something now.

four comments, already:

I’m an Iranian, and having lived in Iran for the majority of my life, I always used to think that Iran is the manhole of the planet where this shit belongs and thrives. But between this, the WikiLeaks incident and the suppression of student protests in the UK, I’m starting to reevaluate my judgment. The difference while there, is not as great as I used to think. Fundamentalism and militarism is spreading. A new order is on the rise. Consider yourself warned.

I was there during the UK student protests, the vast majority of us were just marching peacefully. The problem was that there are a group of anarchists who are now turning up at every protest and disrupting it to cause violence and destruction, using the peaceful protesters as a “human shield”. The anarchists were so spread out, that if the police let a group of us go, the anarchists in that group were free to cause trouble somewhere else. So they had to “kettle” us in order to stop the violence.

To be honest, I don’t see how the police could have handled it any other way. More people would have been hurt if the anarchists had been allowed to continue.

At one point I was standing next to three of these anarchists, they were wearing disguises and were coordinating with other cells using mobile phones. It was scary. They were inciting the younger demonstrators to attack the police, while standing back and not taking any risks themselves. They were so organised, like soldiers.

I’m never going on a protest march again. This is only going to get worse.

What you wittnessed there was probably a police agent. It’s a common tactic used by german police.

Great post, I like it :)
I often wonder though, what would it take to wake up the American public?

So we found we were lied about 9/11 and Afghanistan, ah.. so what! Oh, actually we were lied about Iraq too, we just consented to killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people just so we could capture their oil…umn.. ah so what? It’s life as usual. Hey… the whole economey is falling apart… errr… so what? Oh man… look how our government is trying to suppress freedom of speech… oh.. did they really commit all those criminal acts revealed by Wikileaks? uuugh.. so what?
