Occupy New Haven Is Still Standing


Oh Say Can You Occupy?

Occupiers took the steps of federal court.

Norm Pattis traveled back centuries in Colonial history, took a theoretical turn as city parks director, and asked if he could force people driving Bethany to hold chopsticks in their hand and sing the National Anthem.

He did all that in federal court. To try to save New England’s last standing “Occupy” encampment.

Pattis (pictured at left), the attorney for the Occupy New Haven encampment that the city is trying to move off the upper Green, brought all that history, theater and role-playing to Judge Mark Kravitz’s U.S. District Court room on Church Street Wednesday afternoon.

The hearing lasted three hours. In the end Judge Kravitz extended the restraining order against the city until April 9 and said he plans to issue a decision before that time.

Tim DeCrhistopher just kicked the FASCIST POLITICIAN and Totalitarian Prison thugs in the arse.   His imprisonement and isolation


were the result of WESTERN FASCISTS using political persecution, like Obama with Bradley MANNING, or Britian with Julian Assange.

Similarly, Iceland, U.S. CITIZENS are going to court to SMACK THESE WESTERN FASCISTS IN CONGRESS, AND OBAMA, for their


TOTALIARIAN POLICIES:


US anti-terrorism law curbs free speech and activist work, court told


Controversy over NDAA centres on loose definition of key words, such as who are 'associated forces' of named terrorist groups

EXCERPT:


" A group political activists and journalists has launched a legal challenge to stop an American law they say allows the US military to arrest civilians anywhere in the world and detain them without trial as accused supporters of terrorism.


The seven figures, who include ex-New York Times reporter Chris Hedges, professor Noam Chomsky and Icelandic politician and WikiLeaks campaigner Birgitta Jonsdottir, testified to a Manhattan judge that the law – dubbed the NDAA or Homeland Battlefield Bill – would cripple free speech around the world.


They said that various provisions written into the National Defense Authorization Bill, which was signed by President Barack Obama..."

The Most Transparent Administration Ever™


http://www.salon.com/writer/glenn_greenwald/


EXCERPT:


Barack Obama, January 21, 2009:



A democracy requires accountability, and accountability requires transparency. As Justice Louis Brandeis wrote, “sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants.” In our democracy, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which encourages accountability through transparency, is the most prominent expression of a profound national commitment to ensuring an open Government. At the heart of that commitment is the idea that accountability is in the interest of the Government and the citizenry alike.


Bureau of Investigative Journalism, Tuesday, detailing huge increase in U.S. drone attacks on Yemen:



The ACLU, yesterday, quoting New York Times Editorial Page Editor Andrew Rosenthal on the Obama administration’s refusal to confirm or deny even the existence of its CIA drone program in order to evade FOIA disclosure, even as it boasts about drone attacks in the media:


 


THE ANTI TERRORISM LAWS OF 9/11 BECAME CO OPTED INTO FASCIST LAWS:



Journalists, Activists Challenge NDAA Law


Chris Hedges, Noam Chomsky, among the plantiffs involved in the case

AND FINALLY IN BRITAIN, GALLOWAY KICKS, FAKE LABOR OFFICIALS, BUSH, BLAIR, OBAMA, NATO , ISRAELI FASCISTS IN THE ARSE:


Born Again! George Galloway Stuns Labor, Shakes Up Britain


http://www.counterpunch.org/2012/03/30/born-again-george-galloway-stuns-labor-shakes-up-britain/


EXCERPT:


"Labour has paid the price for its failure to act as an Opposition, imagining that all they had to do was wait and the prize would come their way. Scottish politics should have forced a rethink. Perhaps the latest development in English politics now will, though I doubt it.  Galloway has effectively urinated on all three parties. The Lib-Dems and Tories explaining their decline by the fact that too many people voted!


Thousands of young people infected with apathy, contempt, despair and a disgust  with mainstream politics were dynamised by the Respect campaign. Galloway is tireless on these occasions. Nobody else in the political fields comes even close to competing with him. Not simply because he is an effective orator though this skill should not be underestimated. It comes almost as a shock these days to a generation used to the bland untruths that are mouthed every day by government and opposition politicians. It was the political content of the campaign that galvanized the youth: Respect campaigners and their candidate stressed the disasters of Iraq and Afghanistan.


Galloway demanded that Blair be tried as a war criminal....."


 


NEXT STOP FOR THE OCCUPATION MOVEMENTS AROUND THE WORLD IS TO TAKE DOWN ALL CLASS PARTIES, ALL CLASS


POLITICIANS FOR REAL SOCIAL, GREEN PARTIES, TO CONFRONT FASCIST AUSTERITY, FASCIST CAPITALISM, WESTERN


FASCISM, WITH INTERNATIONAL STRIKES TO END CLASS HISTORY, CLASS HIERARCHIES WHICH DEFORM, SUBORDINATE,


MAKE DEPENDENT SOCIAL FORCES ON CORRUPTION.  WITHOUT CLASS HIERARCHIES, SOCIAL FORCES WOULD THEN


BE TRULY INDEPENDENT, INDIVISIBLE, IN FULL SOCIAL CONTROL, ENDING THE ENSLAVEMENT BY CLASS HISTORY, WITH


ITS TYRANNY.
