Media Roots Radio – Police State & OWS, Current Events by Media Roots

MEDIA ROOTS – Abby & Robbie Martin cover Occupy Wall Street: the police state repression against the First Amendment, the Democratic Party’s attempt to co-opt the movement, the Obama administration’s hypocrisy to praise revolution abroad and censor it at home, the “Black Bloc” provocateurs and their attempt to discredit peaceful movements; media censorship and the fact that news anchors are repeaters, not reporters; the two-tiered justice system catered toward the elite; citizen journalism and its role in allowing participation and unification in the global revolution.

  1. INTERCOM: TO EVERYONE IN THE AREA OF THE CITY OF AMSTERDAM OR ANYONE WITH THE POWER TO COME TO THE CITY:

    THE POLICE HAS STARTED TO AGRESSIVELY DISMANTLE THE OCCUPY AMSTERDAM LOCATION.

    MOST OF THE TENTS HAVE ALREADY BEEN REMOVED FROM THE SQUARE AND OVER 14 PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ARRESTED BY THE POLICE.

    REQUEST TO ALL SUPPORTERS:

    – Call and e-mail to the local authorities.
    – Keep spreading the real news as things are going hot on mainstream now.
    – Show your support by going to the square and helping out the people in need.

    REQUEST TO ALL OCCUPY LIVESTREAMS:

    – Spread and talk about the news from Amsterdam and try to get solidarity from the worldwide occupiers, all support is needed.

    REQUEST TO ALL OCCUPIERS WORLDWIDE:

    – Re occupation of the square and multile other areas in Amsterdam are now being planned. We are NOT bowing down. Our voices will NOT disappear. We will NOT go quietly into the night.

    WE ARE THE 99%. WE ARE THE PEOPLE. WE REMAIN STRONG AND VIGILANT.

  2. You might be interesed in the following BOOK.”State Power and Democracy:Before and During the Presidency of G.W.Bush”. the book examines the historical formation of an American Police State.
