I could not agree with you more my friend and have written similiar here earlier in the thread that it's only when we stop feeding their system through paying for it with our labor and taxes and obeying it's draconian rules will we ever truly know freedom or a better world.

Don't feed the beast!

Great post friend, thanks for sharing.


Thanks bud,
I whole heartedly believe that our only way to end this 50-year descent into hell is non-compliance. Which as it so happens is also completely non-violent. I really can not watch any more coverage of the event because of the way the media refer to many of the violent A-Holes at the protests as Anarchists. An Anarchist, in my view and belief, can not initiate violence as a matter of principle. Watching their propaganda ridden broadcasts only makes me want to throw-up that lovely dinner I had eaten just 30 minutes ago.

We don't have to say or do anything to win this fight.

Smaller than the Chinook, Black Hawk utility helicopters can transport about a dozen troops and carry smaller cargo loads. Black Hawks, seen in the skies above Pittsburgh this week, are used for electronic warfare and aeromedical evacuations, according to the Army.

In an emergency that would require helicopter evacuations of the world leaders attending the summit, the armored Apache attack helicopters could escort the Chinook, Pagonis said.

The heavily armored Humvees, he said, are formidable pieces of equipment with "great deterrence capabilities." Just the sight of a Humvee with a crew of Soldiers in battle dress uniforms and helmets is intimidating, he said. The vehicles are 15 feet long, more than 7 feet wide and weigh 5,900 pounds.






Have they lost their minds? Just having Apaches flying around loaded is dangerous in a city. I hope all Americans pay close attention to this sick display of power over the people. If one person gets shot this country will come unglued. My bet is that they will have Blackwater snipers there in Army uniform that are not American just so things get out of hand.

Police fired pepper spray and beanbag rounds at protesters this afternoon in the largest and most violent demonstrations against the Group of 20 economic summit.

Officers in riot gear clashed with several hundred protesters marching from Bloomfield to Oakland about 5 p.m. Windows were broken at businesses along Baum Boulevard as crowds scattered. Police fired the beanbags and pepper spray canisters during confrontations stretching from the Strip District to Oakland and closed off streets, separating many groups of demonstrators.

The crowds started with more than 500 protesters marching in Lawrenceville. They ran into lines of police about 3:15 p.m. when officers fired the first rounds of pepper spray. Some officers struck protesters with batons as demonstrators scattered. Protesters broke windows on police cars on Penn Avenue, threw rocks and rolled Dumpsters down streets.

Police did not have a full account of how many arrests they made. No injuries were reported.

Officers warned the crowd in several languages to disperse or face arrest before using the pepper spray.

Officers separated most of the protesters into small groups by 5:45 p.m. and were making arrests on streets in Lawrenceville, Oakland and Bloomfield.

Several blocks of Liberty Avenue from Baum Boulevard to West Penn Hospital were completely closed off by police and K-9 officers as they searched side streets for protesters who had fled.

Protesters first rallied in Arsenal Park, then spread to streets around the park at 40th Street and Penn Avenue, some lying down in the street and others chanting: "Bankers, bankers, watch your back, we don't protest, we attack!"


This was the group that did not have a permit Aggie Man.

As you can see they are well serious when it comes to protesting!

And tonight, around 6:45, police fired canisters of an unknown gas to break up a crowd of 500, many of them curious students, who had gathered in Schenley Plaza in Oakland, near Phipps Conservatory, where a G-20 dinner for heads of state was being held.

In that most recent case, at least four to five dozen state police in full riot gear stood at Schenley Drive while the crowd was warned four times to disperse.

Some in the crowd responded "Hell no," while others started singing, "O Say Can You See."

Vic Walczak, legal director for the local ACLU, told reporters, "I don't think this is an unlawful assembly. Everybody is peaceful. This is as close as they'll get to the world's 20 biggest leaders." He also said that when a police car needed to get through, the crowd moved out of the way.

Although there were students in the crowd, others were protesting conditions in Darfur and others chanted, "Whose street? Our street" before police fired the gas. The crowd spread out and then returned, and then police, including 12 on horses, advanced on them, forcing them back.

Police also used gas -- identified by the Secret Service as OC vapor, a form of pepper spray -- to stop a march to Downtown by anarchists and others opposed to G-20 policies this afternoon, but then demonstrators broke up into other groups and confronted police more directly in neighborhood clashes that continued into the evening.

About 300 protesters from this afternoon's thwarted march in Lawrenceville regrouped at Friendship Park in Bloomfield and moved to Baum Boulevard, where they were chased by police on foot around 5 p.m. Some of the protesters running through a gravel parking lot turned and threw rocks at police, who in turn fired "soft" projectiles and rushed in and arrested one man near Ritter's Diner, a landmark business in the area.

Many of these later protesters were locals getting caught up in the excitement of seeing all this taking place in their neighborhood and also legal demonstrators with permits.

One of the reasons that the Powers that Be don't hold these at the U.N. is to make theses meetings attractive to protestors with the intent of discrediting the protesters message based on how they protest.

That's basically the only thing that saved the Hippie Counter Culture from creating a real grass roots revolution in the 60's and 70's if they had been wearing ties and suits and short cut hair and didn't so frighten main stream America with their look and their drug use mainstream America basically liked the peace and love message but not the messengers.

No matter how sensible or logical the message you can dismiss it in the minds of most people simply by painting the messenger as bad.

Conversely no matter how stupid or illogical the message you can gain acceptance for it in the mind of most people simply by how you paint the messenger once again.

It's why the feds and local police love to infiltrate these groups and then instigate actions that will discredit them.

I agree my friend.

I don't own a TV!
I don't own a car I ride a bicycle
I work for myself from home
I don't shop at Wal-Mart and only buy local made in USA from mom and pop stores.
I don't borrow money or take out credit.
I don't insure myself.

If the Powers that Be had to get by on people like me...they would be out of business!

Thanks for posting.

Thanks my friend, hey maybe when the government goes bankrupt they will sell it to a more user friendly demonic presence?

We can always hope!

I'm nowhere near where you are as far as my own personal situation. If I had woken up what was going on in this country earlier, I would have never incurred the student debt I now have.

Thanks for keeping us up to date on the protests.

Thank you my friend, I wish I could say it's my pleasure to do this but it's no pleasure at all to see this happening here in America in my own home town yet!

I do consider it a duty though.

We should all try harder to do what's really in our best interests and not just what is in the Powers that Be's interest.

Thanks for posting that friend. We aren't at the G-20 but we can stay on top of what's going on there up to the second when we pull together all these great different sources.

Thanks!

Also, from Rich Lord, on earlier protests: On Liberty Avenue, protesters rolled Dumpsters down the hill at advancing police. Police stayed pretty calm, moved the Dumpsters aside, got back in formation and waited until some distance was established.

Police continued to cut off knots of protesters, but they found ways to reunite.
Eventually, a group of a few hundred protesters, mostly black-clad with the leaders wearing bandanas over their mouths, wound their way through Lawrenceville and Bloomfield chanting slogans and encountering very little police presence. They briefly congregated at Friendship Park, then moved on toward the border of Bloomfield and Shadyside. At the corner of Liberty and Baum, the leaders of the group began to run across a gravelly lot. At that point, riot-clad police crossed Liberty Avenue and caught up with the leaders of the group. While police put the leaders of the protesters in holds, an order to disperse was broadcast from a large SWAT truck. A few protesters began to throw rocks at the front-line police, and I believe police fired rubber bullets. Police pointed orange-tipped rifles at protesters who were dispersing too slowly. Groups scattered in all directions.


It was interesting that the police apparently had little objection to protesters moving freely through Lawrenceville and Bloomfield, including in front of the hospitals, but clearly were not going to let anyone get into the Strip or Shadyside.


Well ok I can see the need to protect the manger where I was born!

The Shadyside of life I live on now here in Miami did not have these problems when the G-20 came to town in the wake of the very destructive meeting in South America previous to that one.

The Miami Police went for the shirts and polo shirt look and bicycles and just kind of kept using their bullhorns to ask people not to smash up the fair city.

Very few arrests little violence in large part because the police really went out of their way to give the protestors the chance to...gasp...protest!

Imagine that.

OK this one pisses me off, the news caster and her acomplis in the studio are agreeing that they dont want to get the guy on the megaphone any air time to spread his message, but it is clear that they will simply become part of the problem in the future when they themselves the voice of the first ammendment start making attempts to quiet the voice of the individual.

WE have sold out to coorporate enslavement, when 100million dollars can be spent on security, we have seen the end. It is over. The America I know is Dead.

I would NOT give them a second of air time! I watched one of their clips and they are propaganda terrorists!

They actually called the protester the trouble, eeeeuuuw! No way, dont give them a second of airtime.

It's funny how the main stream media uses subtle descriptions to plant seeds to get people to think in predisposed ways.

If they like you they use words like brave and courageous...

If they don't they use words like Strong Arm and Authoritarian when describing world leaders and placing captions under their names.

I sure wish they would let me do the captions!
