The FBI Treated Occupy Like a Terrorist Group

By Adam Clark Estes | The Atlantic Wire19 hrs ago

http://news.yahoo.co...-021450389.html

Now that it's been over a year since the Occupy movement swept across the country, FOIA requests are being fulfilled, revealing uncomfortable details about how authorities viewed the protestors. One such request by the Partnership for Civil Justice came through this weekend, and the 112 heavily redacted pages reveal that the FBI approached the Occupy Wall Street protests as "criminal activity" -- which is not terribly surprising -- and investigated the groups as perpetrators of "domestic terrorism" -- which is fairly unsettling. More specifically, the Feds enlisted its own as well as local terrorism task forces in nine different cities across the country to investigate Occupy. In Memphis, the group was lumped together with Anonymous and the Aryan Nation in discussing the threat of "domestic terrorism." White supremacists and 99 Percenters aren't really two groups that we think about hand-in-hand but whatever.

This isn't the first time that a FOIA request has shown the FBI to have engaged in some suspicious activity around the Occupy movement. In September, a FOIA request from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) showed extensive surveillance of the movement's prominent players, leading ACLU attorney Linda Lye to ask, "Why does a political protest amount to a national security threat?" The FBI denied the surveillance accusations by saying that its investigation did not include "unnecessary intrusions into the lives of law-abiding people" and that its prohibited from investigating Americans "solely for the purpose of monitoring activities protected by the First Amendment or the lawful exercise of other rights." Of course, if you classify the actions as "domestic terrorism," other rules apply.

That in mind, we still don't really have any idea how far the FBI went in chasing the Occupiers. At the time of this latest disclosure over two-thirds of the bureau's records on the movement have been made public. As the Partnership for Civil Justice said in a press release, this latest batch of documents is only "the tip of the iceberg."

Readers anxious about civil liberties under George W. Bush will find fodder for fears—and suggestions for activism—in The COINTELPRO Papers. Ward Churchill and Jim Vander Wall's exposé of America's political police force, the FBI, reveals the steel fist undergirding "compassionate conservatism's" velvet glove. Using original FBI memos, the authors provide extensive analysis of the agency's treatment of the left, from the Communist Party in the 1950s to the Central America solidarity movement in the 1980s. The authors' new introduction posits likely trajectories for domestic repression

Are you a victim of the cointel pro ?

FBI considered Occupy movement potential threat, documents say

A participant in the Occupy Wall Street protest is arrested during a rally to mark the one-year anniversary of the movement in New York on Monday, September 17.

Occupy Wall Street: One year later



New York (CNN) -- The FBI extensively monitored the Occupy Wall Street movement around the United States, using counterterrorism agents and other resources, according to recently released FBI internal documents.

The heavily redacted documents indicate that FBI counterterrorism agents were in close communication with law enforcement agencies, businesses, universities and other organizations across the country about the Occupy Wall Street movement, even before Occupy Wall Street set up a camp in New York's Zuccotti Park in September 2011.

In August 2011 the FBI informed New York Stock Exchange officials of a "planned Anarchist protest titled Occupy Wall Street" scheduled for September 17, 2011. The FBI also notified several New York businesses of the impending protests, according to the documents.

The documents, released under a Freedom of Information Act request, contain references to an October 2011 FBI domestic terrorism briefing in Jacksonville, Florida, regarding the spread of the Occupy Wall Street movement and "the emergence of Occupy chapters in and around the North Florida area." FBI officials also recommended setting up tripwires with Occupy event organizers.

The FBI was concerned that the Occupy venues could provide "an outlet for a lone offender exploiting the movement for reasons associated with general government dissatisfaction," according to the documents

At a Joint Terrorism Task Force meeting in November 2011, FBI agents reported about Occupy Wall Street activities in Anchorage, Alaska, according to the documents.

The documents also described instances from California, Colorado Mississippi, Virginia, and other states involving cooperation between the FBI and other agencies.

FBI counterterrorism agents are traditionally tasked with investigating and curtailing both domestic and foreign terrorism threats.

The agency prepared surveillance and precautionary measures despite acknowledging that Occupy Wall Street organizers "did not condone the use of violence during their events" and, and that the organizers had called for peaceful protest, according to the documents.

The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund, which describes itself on its website as a Washington-based organization "dedicated to the defense of human and civil rights secured by law, the protection of free speech and dissent, and the elimination of prejudice and discrimination," obtained the documents through the Freedom of Information Act.

"This production, which we believe is just the tip of the iceberg, is a window into the nationwide scope of the FBI's surveillance, monitoring, and reporting on peaceful protestors organizing with the Occupy movement," stated Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, executive director of the organization.

"These documents show that the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are treating protests against the corporate and banking structure of America as potential criminal and terrorist activity."

The FBI, responding to the release of the documents regarding Occupy, said it recognizes the rights of individuals and groups to engage in constitutionally protected activity but must take precautions to deal with any potential threats of violence.

"While the F.B.I. is obligated to thoroughly investigate any serious allegations involving threats of violence, we do not open investigations based solely on First Amendment activity," FBI spokesman Paul Bresson said in a statement to CNN. "In fact, the Department of Justice and the F.B.I.'s own internal guidelines on domestic operations strictly forbid that."

The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund said it believes the FBI is withholding more information regarding its surveillance of the Occupy movement, and will be filing an appeal demanding full disclosure of its operations, according to Verheyden-Hilliard.

Even if the movement was benign, having the FBI investigating was the right thing to do. I believe one concern was the connection of the anarchists within the Occupy movement. The fact is the government investigates a lot of different movements, and we need to be thankful they do. It has helped them prevent things from happening, and most of all it has helped prevent the 99% of the Occupy Movement from becoming patsies for the 1 or 2 people that really wanted something more.

A culture of fear and paranoia within your own home, under your own pillow! Thank buddha I'm not american!

Should the government agencies not be focusing their attentions outwardly, towards threats from outside. What happens when the "Authorities" start a campaign of fear and terror on their own citizenry, promoting hate and paranoia of your own neighbours and perhaps family members? I believe that would be called a "Police State". That is, "Authorities whose purpose is not to serve and protect the people but rather to further the interests of corporations and institutions".

Used to be the police were there to serve and protect but now it's more like harass and collect.

COINTELPRO I could see, because most if not all of the groups they investigated were ultimately backed by the Soviet Union or one of its allies, making them agents of influence of a foreign power.

I *really* doubt that's the case with the Occupy crowd though, what has the "Feebs" so worried I wonder?

Lolz. My Canadian passport says otherwise. Just because I oppose some "occupy (what?)" sit-in that lasted for 4 months means I'm not Canadian? Since when did we have to bend over backwards and take it up the ass from some hippies for us to count as Canadians?

In fact, I'm calling you out for not being Canadian. You are showing hostility at me for voicing an opinion that a clear majority of Vancouverites resound with.

http://www.vancouver...oral-candidates - "only 29 per cent of respondents said they have a favourable opinion of Occupy Vancouver, while 64 per cent view it unfavourably. This marks a significant decrease in support since a previous poll released by Ipsos Reid on Nov. 3, which showed 44 per cent of respondents in support versus 48 per cent in opposition."

http://www.vancouver...3858/story.html - "A new poll suggests a strong majority of Metro Vancouver residents — 75 per cent — want the Occupy movement tent city gone from the Vancouver Art Gallery lawn. An Ipsos Reid poll of 760 adults in the region found that 35 per cent of respondents want the Occupy Vancouver encampment removed immediately. Another forty per cent say the protesters should be allowed to stay but be given a firm deadline for removal. Only 20 per cent said the Occupy Vancouver camp should be allowed to remain indefinitely."



You, once again, are in the minority. Calling me un-Canadian for voicing my opinion, let alone one that a majority views as well, is a joke.

This.

The government has a duty to protect its citizens. If there had been an attack of some kind and the government hadn't properly investigated, the same people complaining now would be the same people accussing the US government of false flag operations.

People in this thread are acting like the US government rolled in Tienamen Square style on occupy. Bitch all you want about the USA, but the fact that a protest like Occupy occurred in the middle of Manhattan shows the extent of their freedoms. The USA is a much free-er place than Canada.

It seems the FBI may be onto something. Headline in the New York Post today:


Greenwich Village couple busted with cache of weapons, bombmaking explosives: sources



The privileged daughter of a prominent city doctor, and her boyfriend — a Harvard grad and Occupy Wall Street activist — have been busted for allegedly having a cache of weapons and a bombmaking explosive in their Greenwich Village apartment.


Morgan Gliedman — who is nine-months pregnant — and her baby daddy, Aaron Greene, 31, also had instructions on making bombs, including a stack of papers with a cover sheet titled, “The Terrorist Encyclopedia,’’ sources told The Post yesterday.


People who know Greene say his political views are “extreme,” the sources said.


Cops found the stash in the couple’s West Ninth Street home Saturday when they went there to look for Gliedman, 27, who was wanted for alleged credit-card theft.


A detective discovered a plastic container with seven grams of a white chemical powder called HMTD, which is so powerful, cops evacuated several nearby buildings.


Police also found a flare launcher, which is a commercial replica of a grenade launcher; a modified 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun; ammo; and nine high-capacity rifle magazines, the sources said.


Cops also allegedly uncovered papers about creating homemade booby traps, improvised submachine guns, and various handwritten notebooks containing chemical formulas.


The couple’s arrest Saturday was a sharp turn from their privileged backgrounds.


Gliedman, who grew up on Park Avenue, graduated from Dalton in 2002. Her dad, Dr. Paul Gliedman, is director of radiation oncology at Beth Israel Hospital, Brooklyn Division.


Paul Gliedman — who was included in New York magazine’s list of top doctors in 2011 — received his medical degree from Columbia University.


Morgan’s mother, Susyn Schops Gliedman, is a realtor with Prudential Douglas Elliman.


Greene attended Harvard as an undergraduate and did his graduate work at the university’s Kennedy School of Government.


He has five prior run-ins with the police, with the charges including, assault, and weapons possession, sources said.

Occupy Steubenville: Anonymous vs. the Sherriff

By Connor Simpson | The Atlantic Wire3 hrs ago

http://news.yahoo.co...-202911554.html


The sheriff investigating the alleged rape in Steubenville, Ohio, has not made friends with Anonymous after the hacking collective's document dump this week accused him of being close wit Steubenville High's football coach, deleting video evidence, and running "the largest illegal gambling operation in Jefferson County." So it was strange to see the sheriff on stage at the Occupy Steubenville rally Saturday afternoon.


Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla has been targeted as the symbol of the corrupt nature surrounding the city and its relationship with the Big Red football program, ever since rape charges against two members of the team became national news again on Wednesday. Whether because of the increased attention or not, the investigation has deepened already — CNN reports the FBI offered "some technical assistance" to state authorities in charge of the case.


On Friday evening, Abdalla was declaring war against Anonymous. He had previously expressed his concerns about the information being distributed by the hacking group — the names of the accused, who are being charged as minors; the teammate whose video went viral and now may be in trouble with Ohio State University — but not to this level. Abdalla told WTRF in a new interview that he was "coming after" Anonymous.


The hacking group wasn't threatened by the small town sheriff, though:

Inside the Anonymous Hacking File on the Steubenville 'Rape Crew'



Still, some time between Friday night and Saturday afternoon, Abdalla had a change of heart. In the middle of the Anonymous-organized Occupy Steubenville gathering Saturday afternoon — many rape victims spoke to the crowd of more than 1,300 rallyers, with many more watching on UStream — Abdalla showed up and took the stage:



The crowd didn't receive him that well. Abdalla stuck around for a few minutes after this video ends, and was largely met with boos from the crowd. But it's pretty amazing that he showed up at all, considering what he said the night before.


Unfortunately, the video above doesn't contain the best part of Abdalla's appearance. The Anonymous member MC'ing the event — the one standing next to him in the picture above — actually got a chance to interview the sheriff at one point. When asked about the now notorious video of the member of the football team joking about raping the victim, Abdalla said he found it "disgusting." He told Anonymous that he was aware of the video's existence, but didn't watch it until three days ago, when Anonymous and their partners at LocalLeaks was first broadcast to the public via their constantly updating Steubenville Files.
