US banks helped FBI to crush Occupy

December 30th, 2012 · No Comments

Those violent clampdowns on Occupy protesters weren’t just planned by U.S. authorities – they were carefully coordinated with the big banks themselves, writes Naomi Wolf at the Guardian.

At times the FBI, police, and the Department of Homeland Security even merged with banks into a “monstrous whole” called The Domestic Security Alliance Council.

Drawing on newly released FBI documents, Wolf argues that authorities were “working for and with banks to target, arrest, and politically disable peaceful American citizens.” Among the findings:

– FBI officials conferred with banks to share information on Occupy Wall Street protesters gathered by private security firms.

– The FBI shared plans to crush Occupy events with organizations targeted by the protesters.
– Threats to assassinate OWS leaders are still redacted despite standard FBI practice of informing political leaders who are under a threat of violence.
A request by The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund prompted the release of the documents-“a groundbreaking scoop that should once more shame major U.S. media outlets (why are nonprofits now some of the only entities in America left breaking major civil liberties news?),” writes Wolf. Newser
FACTS & FIGURES
FBI documents received by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund through a Freedom of Information Act request reveal massive government surveillance of non-violent political groups in the United States.
The trove of documents also show how the government considered a largely peaceful Occupy Wall Street movement to be a terrorist threat.
The documents show how the government colluded with the New York Stock Exchange to discuss the Occupy Wall Street protests a month prior to establishment of the Occupy Wall Street encampment in Zuccotti Park and other Occupy actions scattered around the country. infowars.com
