The U.S. Government Is Not Taking These Protesters Seriously!

The Occupy Wall Street Everywhere movement is for real, folks. Government leaders need to wake up and realize we are in the midst of the American Autumn Revolution. 

Our state and local governments are sanctioning attacks upon the protesters. They are trying to break up the encampments and the groups of people gathering together to protest.

The Constitution does not say anywhere that in order to gather and protest the government, they need permits!! It doesn't say anywhere in the Constitution that we do not have the right to assemble. On the contrary, it says the citizens have the right to assemble and protest their government.

What we have is an attack upon the rights of the people to petition their government through protest. The elite have called out their quasi-military force, namely the police dressed in full riot gear and shooting at civilians. It resembles the military against the Arab Spring protesters.

I do recall Hillary Clinton telling Egypt's government to allow for their citizens to protest their dictatorship. We are protesting our oligarchy-our plutocracy, which is not democracy, and a government dedicated to the fulfillment of the Wall Street elite to perpetuate crimes and thefts upon the American people via the Treasury, the Justice Department, the State Department, the Congress, the Federal Reserve, the Supreme Court, and the White House.

This is article is about the attack upon the rights of those in Denver to assemble in a public place to protest the very crimes against the 99%. The sad part is that the police ARE part of the 99% and have been screwed by the 1%. Just look at the pensions, health care, and wages.

Occupy Denver Clash: Police Use Force On Denver Protesters

10-29-11 From Huffington Post

DENVER -- Authorities moved into an encampment of Occupy Wall Street supporters Saturday evening and began arresting demonstrators just hours after a standoff near the steps of the Colorado Capitol turned into a skirmish that ended in police force, including pepper spray and reports of rubber bullets.
Denver police spokesman Matt Murray said 15 people were arrested.
The action followed a tense afternoon standoff between protesters and authorities near the Capitol that escalated after about 2,000 marchers made their way toward the building and a small surge of demonstrators tried to advance up the steps.
About eight officers scuffled with a group of protesters and police confirmed that they used pepper spray and pepper balls to break up the crowd. A protester told the paper at the time that police used rubber bullets.
Murray said protesters kicked police and knocked one officer off his motorcycle. He said five protesters were arrested, including two for assault and one for disobedience.
He said some demonstrators had received medical treatment on the scene, but no one had been taken to a hospital. There were no reports of injured officers.
Mike Korzen, 25, said he was among the protesters whom police dispersed with rubber bullets and pepper spray.
"I was standing there with my hands behind my back," Korzen said, using a water bottle to wash pepper spray from his eyes this afternoon.
