'How do you make matters worse for an elusive intelligence company that has been forced to scramble for explanations about their ownership of an intricate, widespread surveillance program? Just ask Cubic, whose troubles only begin with TrapWire.

Days after the international intelligence gathering surveillance system called TrapWire was unraveled by RT, an ongoing investigation into any and all entities with ties to the technology has unturned an ever-increasing toll of creepy truths. In only the latest installment of the quickly snowballing TrapWire saga, a company that shares several of the same board members as the secret spy system has been linked to a program called Tartan, which aims to track down alleged anarchists by specifically singling out Occupy Wall Street protesters and the publically funded media — all with the aid of federal agents.’

Occupier charged with terroristic felony for protesting in front of bank

'A protester belonging to an Occupy Wall Street group in rural Pennsylvania is being charged with felony attempted bank robbery and a terrorism-related charge for holding signs up during a demonstration at a local Wells Fargo branch.

David C. Gorczynski, 22, was charged on Tuesday with attempted bank robbery and terroristic threatening, both felonies, as well as one misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. Police detained him after he walked into an Easton, PA Wells Fargo branch with a sign that read “You’re being robbed” and another that said “Give a man a gun, he can rob a bank. Give a man a bank, and he can rob a country.”’

'The Occupy Wall Street protesters, whose anti-greed message gained global traction last year, are hoping to rekindle the movement's momentum. Next, a London Occupy activist tells RT how the group is still on the rise, as more people understand they're being robbed by their own governments.'

Street Riots Form in Response to Monsanto Intrusion into Nepal

'After the Nepalese government decided to allow Monsanto into their borders and subsequently force farmers to use genetically modified seeds, the citizens took to the streets.

The starving nation let Monsanto in despite recent and massive bans in a number of EU countries. Monsanto’s GMO crops have been shown by a team of 900 scientists to be virtually ineffective at combating starvation — in fact, they perform way worse than traditional and sustainable agriculture.

Now, according to some Nepal-based activists, Monsanto has been run out of the country by fierce protesting.’

'Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is calling for the intensification of sanctions against Iran over its alleged nuclear weapons program, saying an embargo on Iranian oil must be put in place. But Caleb Maupin of the International Action Center, an anti-war group, say such measures “are just part of a continued repression of the Iranian people.”'

Street Cams Can Now Tag, Track and Follow Individuals

'The dystopian nightmare described in George Orwell’s novel 1984 took place in London, UK. This very city is today one of the most heavily monitored places in the world, using a record number of cameras and the most advanced surveillance technology to keep track of its citizens. Reuters now reports that the CCTV system of London has now the ability to tag specific people, track them across the entire system and even run a “search” on them for previous footage.

The report basically praises the software and quickly dismisses the privacy concerns it raises, stating that most citizens approve of being monitored (I’d like to see a scientific survey proving this). Of course, this summer’s London Riots were mentioned as an excuse to implement this technology, as anticipated in my article entitled The London Riots and How They Will be Used to the Elite’s Advantage.’

Eviction Addiction: OWS vs drones, LRADs & undercover agents (by RussiaToday)

'The US police continue to play cat and mouse with the Occupy movement, having torn down the last remaining Occupy Wall Street camp in San Francisco, arresting 55 people for illegal lodging.

Last three months have seen a lot of police activity, with tactics changing several times against an entirely non-violent protest movement. Reports of mass arrests being made while peaceful protesters stand by chanting “Shame on you!” have become routine.’

Wall Street Propagandists Scramble To Cover US Ties to Russian Protesters

'As the evidence begins to mount pointing the accusing finger at the increasingly illegitimate corporate-financier occupiers of the West’s governments as having built up Russian opposition movements and being behind the current unrest filling Russia’s streets, the corporate media has already started to rewrite events as they unfold.

An amazing piece of mid-event revisionism titled, “Moscow braces as election protest goes viral,” desperately attempts to portray the protests as “leaderless” even as the article itself interviews “organizers.” Quoting unnamed, and most likely nonexistent protesters, the article featured in the Sydney Morning Herald insists protesters claimed, “I came on my own. I learnt about it on the web.” But the article then states (emphasis added), “and last night, thanks to the web, organisers were expecting more than 30,000 people to demonstrate against what they see as the rigged results of last Sunday’s elections, because that’s how many have committed themselves to a sign-up sheet on Facebook.”’

#OccupyWallStreet Officially Classified As Terrorist Group Along With Al-Qaeda

'Occupy Wall Street protestors are now being listed as a Domestic Terrorist Group being disseminated on a list that includes Al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations

As I previously reported, the US Army is being mobilized to crush Occupy Wall Street and the recent passage of the National Defense Authorization Act opens the door for the military to arrest and detain American citizens indefinitely without trial.

US Army Preparing To Crush #OccupyWallStreet

Analyst: US Mobilizing Army Against Occupy As Economy Deteriorates An analyst informs that the US has its army on standby against the Occupy and student movement as the economic situation in America deteriorates day by day.

As previously reported, the US has began a deployment of 20,000 troops in the US to deal with civil unrest in the even of a catastrophic even such as a massive large scale terror attacks or economic collapse .

[…]

Then came news that our beloved Senate has passed SR 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act Bill.

As I have previously reported, the final reconciled version of the bill may one day prove to be the declaration of World War 3.

Furthermore, the bill will allow the military to treat American Citizens – such as Occupy Wall Street protestors – as terrorists by labeling them as threats to national security, and detain them indefinitely in military prisons.

[…]

Read The Rest…

We now have our first confirmation that Occupy Wall Street is being labeled as a Domestic Terrorist Threat and protestors now being labeled as possible domestic terrorists. Don’t hesitate to think for a single second that agencies across the entire US agencies haven’t already done the same exact thing.

Perhaps more alarming is the photo of the original police document that has secretly handed “trusted” anti-terrorism partners has been removed from twitter.’

Has Truth Occupied Wall Street?

'An amazing thing is happening on the world stage. While the Occupy Revolution continues to be minimized, marginalized and seemingly bastardized by the mass media and even some of the alternative media, it keeps rolling on in spite of all the efforts to ignore, deter or derail it. And I think I know why.

This now multifaceted phenomenon appears to be morphing…and in very exciting ways. Occupy just-about-anything has taken on a life of its own and energized vast multitudes of fed-up people worldwide. Citizens everywhere are realizing their officials and leaders are sold out stooges of the military corporate complex and that they’re not going to get any changes by “normal” means.

So they’re mobilizing—physically, mentally and spiritually. And it’s wonderful—in spite of all the damn co-opters, distortionists, jealous non-participants and the like.’

Pepper-spray cops placed on leave

'Two police officers who pepper-sprayed peaceful protesters at the University of California, Davis have been placed on administrative leave.

The offending officers, who went on leave on Sunday, have not been identified, The Associated Press reported.

“Videos taken during Friday’s arrests showed that the two officers used pepper spray on peacefully seated students,” the university announced in a news release.

On Friday, police officers violently confronted anti-corporatism protesters camping on the UC Davis campus, spraying the chemical irritant on students that were sitting on the ground and arresting 10 of them.

Many UC Davis alumni, staff, students, and faculty expressed outrage over the incident.

On Saturday, the Faculty Association of UC Davis issued a statement accusing University Chancellor Linda Katehi of “a gross failure of leadership” and calling for her resignation.

Katehi has resisted the calls so far, pledging instead to rigorously probe the incident.

The demonstration was being held in solidarity with the worldwide Occupy movements that began in September after a group of people gathered in New York’s financial district with the motto of “Occupy Wall Street” to protest “corporate greed,” corruption, poverty, and social and economic inequality in the US.’

'Has Twitter acted to silence Occupy Wall Street? As a new generation of protesters relies on social media to get their message across, doubts are beginning to surface that the latest tool for popular revolution is firmly in corporate hands.

As OWS protestors gathered at intersections around Wall Street Thursday, their plans to stop traders from ringing the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange was quickly thwarted by a heavy-handed police response.

With an estimated 400 arrested and demonstrators complaining of police brutality, the coordinated nationwide clampdown by local authorities is in full effect.

But amid the historic level of civic protest that has not been seen in the United States in a generation, many were wondering: “Why isn’t Occupy Wall Street trending on Twitter?”’
