Dallas Party Ends Badly for U.S. Trade Reps & Federal Agents



Dozens of rogue "delegates" disrupt Trans-Pacific Partnership gala with "award," "mic check," mass toilet paper replacement, projection 

* * * * * 
Two dozen rogue "delegates" disrupted the corporate-sponsored welcome gala for the high-stakes Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade negotiations yesterday with a fake award ceremony and "mic check." Other activists, meanwhile, replaced hundreds of rolls of toilet paper (TP) throughout the conference venue with more informative versions, and projected a message on the venue's facade. 

The first action began when a smartly-dressed man approached the podium immediately after the gala's keynote speech by Ron Kirk, U.S. Trade Representative and former mayor of Dallas. The man (local puppeteer David Goodwin) introduced himself as "Git Haversall," president of the "Texas Corporate Power Partnership," and announced he was giving Kirk and other U.S. trade negotiators the "2012 Corporate Power Tool Award," which "Haversall's" partner held aloft. 

The crowd of negotiators and corporate representatives applauded, and "Haversall" continued: "I'd like to personally thank the negotiators for their relentless efforts. The TPP agreement is shaping up to be a fantastic way for us to maximize profits, regardless of what the public of this nation—or any other nation—thinks is right." 

At that point, the host of the reception took the microphone back and announced that the evening's formal programming had concluded. But Mr. Haversall confidently re-took the microphone and warmly invited Kirk to accept the award. 

Kirk moved towards the stage to accept the award, but federal agents blocked his path to protect him from further embarrassment. At that point, a dozen well-dressed "delegates" (local activists, some from Occupy Dallas) broke into ecstatic dance and chanted "TPP! TPP! TPP!" for several minutes until Dallas police arrived. 

Fifteen minutes later, another dozen interlopers from Occupy Dallas interrupted the reception with a spirited "mic-check." Outside, activists projected a message on the hotel, and throughout the night, delegates discovered that hundreds of rolls of custom toilet paper had been installed in the conference venue.  



 


Members of Occupy Bexar rented a bus to Dallas for this creative action.

Greece has called new elections for mid-June.

IMHO--talking about someone else's country, after all--here is a modest proposal



The Hellenes know what needs to happen: 

1) Elect the Left Coalition SYRIZA with some additional Communist partners. 

2) Kick all the bankster traitors outta the government.

3) Default.

4) Leave the euro.

5) Quit NATO. (Mobilize army to repell predictable CIA coup attempt.)

6) Turn to the East for necessary financial aid.

7) Build pipeline with Caspian Pipeline Consortium.

8) Join BRICS.

green-surge-jill-stein-logo.png 
Sunday, May 20, 11:30am: Rally to Protest the NATO/G8 Summit - Meet up with Jill Stein and the Green Surge at 11:30am sharp at the Buckingham Fountain in Grant Park. We'll head to the rally together! 




She gonna be right on the front lines. Chicago is lighting up:

An impromptu march this afternoon gathered well over a a thousand, so Sunday should be intense.



Good local streamer linx at: http://occupychi.org/livestream 



among them:









And Timcast http://www.ustream.tv/timcast , Air, OccupyFreedomLA, punkboySF & other national streamers are there too.



Regular CPD reasonably restrained in the mass contact situations. But OCD (militarized monkeys under "Red Squad" command) have been conducting sinister, targeted black ops. 



Some alleged "Anon" streamer got busted  & the online trolls were scripted to immediately "put a snitch jacket" on high-traffic fellow streamer Tangello. This is classic old COINTELPRO textbook sh!t.



Bad  news is the boomers' stupidos have still never figured out how they were jerked around--after more than 40 years, so the tactic will probably work again... Ignorance can be corrected. Stupid is forever. 



Then, during the march, they hit the home where Tim Poole & other outta town streamers are staying, seizing equipment, etc--and the summit isn't even started yet! Some hyperbole in the early reports. An apt full of expensive equipment apparently unmolested. But after the police left, the back door was found standing open & the alarm going off. Odd aftermath of a police visit, hunh? Scanning now for bugs or other tampering.



Police lines broken at State & Washington, crowd too down several cops at 7:30 pm local ... state troopers in full armor ready to move in...   hour later, a standoff outside Millennium Parkm (north end of Grant Park.) Protestors again break out and stage a several hours Ant-Capitalist March into the Southside.

Video of CPD van hitting a protestor: http://t.co/CZ716xSj



Stay tuned...

Protests in Chicago: “Don't take healthcare from my mom”




Protests in Chicago: “Don't take healthcare from my mom”






In several hours the annual NATO summit will open in Chicago. The representatives of more than 50 NATO’s member states and partners have arrived in Chicago. The main topics on the agenda are the anti-ballistic missile system, Afghanistan and the reform of the alliance. The politicians will have to hold their sessions behind a thick cordon of the police and military officers who will hedge them from thousands of protesters who came to Chicago from all the states to call on the military and politicians to stop wars and to spend money on peaceful purposes. The “Voice of Russia” correspondent has visited the protesters’ camp and attended one of the rallies.


Finding the protesters or so-called Occupants is not difficult at all. They are constantly reporting about their activities on Facebook, Twitter and at the Occupy Chicago website. After the confrontation with the police on Friday the protesters are now acting calmer. It is likely that they are accumulating energy for the main campaigns slated on Sunday. But whatever it may be the campaign in the outskirts of Chicago was peaceful. Punks, feminists, pensioners, young people gathered under dozens of different slogans. The main of them is to spend money on health care not on war.

What does Democracy look like? This is what democracy looks like.”Mayor Rahm, Mayor Rahm, don't take healthcare from my mom."


The people who were protesting against the greediness of the bankers in the Wall Street now have new slogans. This time these slogans concern the war. In an interview with the “Voice of Russia” Ann Wright, one the protesters, explains why.







Download


About 1,000 people took part in the campaign.  There were also 100 reporters. The police (there were about 15 officers on duty) did not interfere. Sometimes the policemen even took leaflets the protesters gave them and spoke to the protesters. Many of the protesters came from other states. Gabriel, who is 26, says he has come from New York across half of the country to  express his opinion.







Download


When the local residents heard the slogans which were mainly social, many of them joined the protesters. We hear from Vicky, a local resident.







Download


After the meeting in the park the crowd headed towards the the house of Chicago’s mayor to protest against the city government’s plans on closing hospitals. This campaign was peaceful unlike the confrontation between the protesters and the police earlier on Friday.  Late Friday the police detained three activists on suspicion of terrorism. The police said that the activists were making petrol bombs but the activists deny this saying that they were brewing beer in home conditions. In any case the Chicago authorities have taken unprecedented security measures and the congress center where the NATO summit will be held has been cordoned by the police and the army.

NATO and US vs Protestors




NATO and US vs Protestors

Steadfastly continuing the (perhaps not so) new American tradition of stripping the American people of their freedoms, oppressing them and if need be eliminating them altogether, all in the name of safety, security and in order to save them from the evil terrorists hiding behind every tree, those evil Russians, the Iranians and North Korea, Chicago prepares to host a showcase summit for the world’s top war machine, an organization that will soon completely dominate and control the entire planet if the architects behind it have their way.   



Do the people in Chicago want the summit? No, but it doesn’t really matter, those in power want it. In the vernacular we will call them the 1%, they are also known as the elites, the globalists and what have you. It doesn’t really matter what you call them, they are those born to privilege who have little value for human life (other than their own of course) and who expertly manipulate and feed off the pain, grief, work, blood, sweat and tears of the common people.


Shamelessly and blood thirstingly profiteering from the death and destruction of what has become non-stop global war, from the illegal narcotics trade that decimates the poor and what they consider to be undesirable segments of the world’s population, and even from the illegal black market trade in human organs, no matter what stage of the bloody circle you focus on they (the 1%) are there, to benefit and profit. Which is why, in a nutshell, the 99% of us must protest, and stand up, before it is my eye they want, or your kidney, or your baby sister’s liver or they decide we are completely expendable without even bothering to harvest our organs.


Lest I digress, let’s look at what they (the 1%) have planned for the peaceful demonstrators who already have to must up huge levels of bravery, and in the words of one Occupier I spoke to; “…be ready to sacrifice my body… for the cause.” But before we do let’s look at who all of these preparations are being planned for.


In case you have been on a deserted island, in another galaxy, or in a country that just doesn’t give a toot about what is going on in the US and know nothing about the Occupy movement let me fill you in real quick. 


For decades the US has been on the verge of a complete and total societal breakdown. It had been repressed minorities, immigrants and the poor who have classically gotten poorer as the rich have gotten richer. These segments of the US population were growing more and more difficult to control and events were needed to crack down. 9-11 was that event. Then the election of a black president kept most of the minorities placated. So the elites, once again emboldened decided to decimate the middle class, classically made up of white Americans, and this gave birth to the Occupy Movement.


The Occupiers are not the radical Black Panthers or the hippies of the ‘60s. They are peaceful, educated and even a little nerdy and are becoming more and more organized and focused. Their addition to number of discontent masses is dangerous for the elites. Together they may now have the power to cut off the profiteering feeding frenzy that the elites have been on for decades.


How will these educated, discontent, and peaceful groups be dealt with? Well, with what the US Government does best, maximum force and violence and the stripping of civil and human rights! Sorry for the rhetorical question. How dare them protest the killing by the elites and their world domination! There will also be an unprecedented campaign of intimidation and “fear mongering” in order to keep the number of protesters to a minimum.


In a preview, the Chicago Police Department, one of the few if not the only police department in the US and perhaps the world as well, to have had to call a moratorium on torture, has began arresting these malcontents. Yesiree Bob, they must be stopped.


So far more than 20 people have been arrested with 3 people who were stopped and intimidated by police being made examples of. Last week Jared Chase, Brent Beterly, and Brian Jacob Church who arrived in Chicago from Florida, were surrounded by several police squad cars and detained for no apparent reason. They were questioned about why they were in Chicago and what they planned to do during the NATO summit. They happened to record the encounter and posted an edited version on YouTube and then the entire video on the internet.


On Wednesday night police raided several homes and apartments and arrested 9 activists. Police broke down doors with guns drawn and searched residences without a warrant or consent. After holding them without charges for 48 hours the police released 6 of those arrested and filed the most serious charges possible against the 3 innocent Occupy activists from Florida, including possession of explosives or incendiary devices, material support for terrorism, and conspiracy. A gas can and some empty bottles in the car led to the explosives charges.


In an official statement released to the press the National Lawyers Guild, an official US wide organization for lawyers, Sarah Gelsomino with the NLG and the People's Law Office, said the following: "The National Lawyers Guild deplores the charges against Occupy activists in the strongest degree. It's outrageous for the city to apply terrorism charges when it's the police who have been terrorizing activists and threatening their right to protest."


The media is also being controlled, in a document titled NOT INTENDED FOR GENERAL DISTRIBUTION. FOR MEDIA GUIDANCE ONLY, the Chicago Police Department has set out rules for the press, targeting independent  journalists in particular with passages such as the following: ”...media access generally will be the same as public access. Credentials will, however, allow media personnel access to media-only areas. No “cutting” in and out of police lines will be permitted, or “going up against their backs.” Those who follow protesters onto private property to document their actions are also will be subject to arrest if laws are broken.” ”Any member of the media who is arrested will have to go through the same booking process as anyone else. Release of equipment depends on what part the equipment played in the events that led to the arrest.”


An Chicago’s mayor, Rahm Emanuel has used the event to install permanent changes which strip away even more rights and freedoms from the people. The new measures include:


1.   Authorization for the Mayor to purchase and deploy surveillance cameras throughout the city, without any type of oversight.


2.   Restrictions on public activity, including amplified sound and morning gatherings.


3.   Restrictions on parades, including the requirement to purchase an insurance policy worth $1 million and to register every sign or banner that will be held by more than one person.


4.   The power to deputize many different types of law enforcement personnel other than the Chicago Police Department.


Protests have been drawn from the ACLU, Amnesty International, the Occupy Movement.


The summit has also been designated a National Special Security Event (NSSE) by the Department of Homeland Security thus passing final authority over law enforcement to the US Secret Service.


The Chicago police are armed to the teeth and have even ordered special armor for the horses of the mounted police.


According to Occupy Chicago, they are; “… organizing a week of actions highlighting the violence and oppression of NATO, and calling for the organization to be disbanded.”


Let’s hope for restraint and cool heads from all sides.
