The first attack on american citizens by the U.S. Government for the purposes of globalization occurred at the Miami FTAA protest.

The protest was organised primarily by the AFL-CIO and senior citizen activists that were peaceful. However, it was estimated that 1% percent of the protestors were 'anarchists'.

In a piece by NOW on PBS airing Feb 27 detailed how Jeb Bush approached the White House for federal funding for security which approved 8.5 million dollars for security for the FTAA conference that was cooordinated by the Department of Homeland Security.

The results were a massive attack on protestors and reporters in which all protestors were considered 'anarchists' and attacked with clubs, stun guns, bean bag guns, pepper guns, pepper spray and tear gas. Many of the attacks were headshots intended to seriously injure or kill American citizens. Although, no one was killed many protestors required head surgery.

The right to free assembly was also violated when 150-200 armed 'riot' police entered an amphitheatre that the AFL-CIO had a permit for a rally. The 'riot police' entered for their 'protection' in an attempt to intimidate the AFL-CIO.

Many protestors were arrested on trumped charges of "resisting arrest without violence' in order to clear the streets of protestors in violation of their constitution right to 'assembly' and 'free speech'

The police brutality was not reported by the Major Cable News Networks that were present at the conference and protest.

One can only imagine what they have in store for protests planned this summer and fall as the 'election' approaches...
