POLICE USE PAINFUL NEW WEAPON ON G20 PROTESTERS

By Allison Kilkenny, True/Slant

This technology has been deployed in Iraq as an

"anti-insurgent weapon" -- it could easily be used as a

torture tool.

As you'll see, the students were (a) not numerous, and (B) not really doing much of anything, but sort of hanging out. And yet the cops were suited up for heavy combat (in some galaxy far, far away), and came down hard on.... nothing. They lobbed gas grenades, dragged people off, etc., as if there were a riot going on. But the only figures breaking any laws on that calm campus were the cops themselves.

Mike

I'm protesting the repression in Pittsburgh because what those "Officers Of The Law" did was disgusting... It makes me want to cry... But I'm too mad to cry.

A story of two protests in the United States, six weeks apart.

August, 2009, in Portsmouth New Hampshire, an armed protester threatens to "water the tree of liberty" with the blood of tyrants and patriots.

September, 2009, in Pittsburgh, unarmed protesters challenge the G-20 leaders to stop destroying the earth, and exploiting its people.

For whom did the batons, gas, sound weapons, National Guard and curfews get deployed? Who got arrested? Who got endless news coverage and who got almost none? Whose free speech was protected and who was criminalized?

Outraged by the police/military repression of protest at the G-20 in Pittsburg? Sign this letter to be delivered Friday October 2, and ask your friends to sign it.

Wow. If they wanted those areas blocked off, they should have setup the perimeter to begin with. Holy crap. You'd almost think that was military dressed up in police outfits.

That kind of retarded crap really ticks me off. "We the People" Not "We the Corporations, the lobbyists, the Politicians, The Man."

People up top need to wake up and realize the only reason they're in charge is because we put them there, "We the people" can remove them as well.
