    Occupy Wall Street, well known for its violence against police and civilians, rapes, and suicides, is attempting to make a comeback. After months of being out of the public eye, OWS is planning a rally on May Day, or May 1. To accompany their rally, Occupy Wall Street has created a propaganda poster to show what they are all about. The poster is of a pink unicorn ripping the head off of a police office, while a rainbow shines in the background: On the unicorn's left leg, the acronym "WSA" can be seen. WSA stands for the anti-capitalist organization the...

    In a sign of what may be coming, residents of a Chicago condo building located near the site of next month’s NATO summit have been asked to leave for the event or risk being caught in a storm of rioters. WND first reported in August 2011 that radicals, some with ties to President Obama, were planning to riot during the NATO summit. FOX Chicago News reported the people living in the 17-floor Library Tower building at 520 South State Street were warned in a letter from condo management that “we are STRONGLY recommending that all residents find places to stay...

These three geniuses are featured in an Iranian state-controlled media video segment at a conference in Tehran about the radical leftist Occupy Wall Street movement.

    Ah, spring! The trees are greening up like so many broccoli sprouts across the landscape. The daffodils and daisies and dandelions are dotting the lawns of many a foreclosed home. Young men's hearts turn to thoughts of beer. And the Cubs are in last place. Yes, spring is in the air (see the pollen and mold counts). Spring. It's a magical season. The earth comes to life, and we do with it. So it is with the young progressives. Their hearts turn to thoughts of occupying places. And so it is that after the long winter of their packed-up...

    eXiled editor Yasha Levine still has a host of legal woes hanging over his head from being arrested while covering last November’s LAPD crackdown of OccupyLA. Turns out, those are the least of his worries at the moment. During his two-day stay in Los Angeles Metro Jail, Levine says he contracted a wicked case of scabies. Until a few days ago, I thought my scabies was just a gnarly poison oak rash that I had picked up in the Santa Monica mountains after losing the trail and having to cut through the overgrown backyards of multimillion dollar mansions. For weeks...

  • Occupy New Haven protesters told to get out

    04/17/2012 11:44:30 AM PDT · by matt04 · 16 replies
    New Haven city officials have been given the green light to evict Occupy New Haven protesters from the Green. The protesters must begin vacating the Green on Wednesday morning. Protestors have been stationed on the New Haven Green for the past six months, one of the longest stays in New England. Bulldozers began moving in last week after a judge had ruled with the city, saying the tents were becoming a hazard and blocking public space. But, another judge in a federal appeals court judge decided protestors could have a little more time, granting another temporary stay. The decision to...

    We’ve told you in previous reports to expect the increasingly broke, desperate and nomadic Occupy movement to continue to make police the enemy and to make more flailing ‘direct actions’ in an attempt to stir up headlines. In New York City this weekend, they did not disappoint. As The New York Times East Village Local reported... Last night’s riotous atmosphere resulted in a sergeant and lieutenant suffering minor injuries while scuffling with anarchist protesters at the Astor Place Starbucks, the police said. According to police, around 25 people tried smashing the windows of the cafe with eight-foot long steel pipes...

    The Portland Police Bureau is expected to end the fiscal year in the red, overspending its $169 million budget by $3.42 million. The largest drivers are nearly $2 million in Occupy Portland policing costs; more retirements (26 so far this fiscal year), bringing larger sick leave and vacation payouts; and cash payouts to officers for earned holiday compensatory time. As a result, the bureau this spring has asked for additional one-time funds to plug the budget hole.

    The Day ^ | April 15, 2012 | Red Jahncke
    Not since the "lost generation" of the First World War has the errors and miscalculations of their elders so disastrously affected the younger generation. Yet, today's youth seem curiously unaware of the bad hand dealt them. Witness the aimlessness of the Occupy Wall Street protest, whose cause and goal should have been clear. What enabled the young OWS protesters to camp out for months was their unemployed status. Indeed, the unemployment rate for all 16- to 24-year-olds is a stratospheric 17 percent. So jobs should have been their unambiguous and elemental cause. Instead, OWS squandered its energy on class warfare,...

    Members of Occupy Boulder are planning a protest over the University of Colorado's efforts to shut down the annual 4/20 celebration. At a general assembly Saturday on Pearl Street, members of the group said the measures being taken by CU -- including shutting down the campus to visitors and closing Norlin Quad -- were turning the university into a "police state." "We need to address the police lockdown at CU, which is a response to a peaceful protest that has gone on for 20 years," said Daniel Schwartz. "These are draconian measures that are suppressing our First Amendment rights." CU...

    UPDATED: Executive chairman Sumner Redstone made an unchanged $20.3 million last year, while his CEO overtook Viacom's Philippe Dauman to become the highest-paid Hollywood CEO so far this reporting season. CBS Corp. said late Friday that president and CEO Leslie Moonves received higher compensation worth $69.9 million last year, driven by option awards. The total pay package, details of which were disclosed in a regulatory filing, was up 21 percent from the $57.7 million the media mogul had made in 2010 and makes him the highest-paid Hollywood CEO so far this reporting season. In 2010, the highest-paid CEO in the...

    The Occupy movement vowed for a renewal in the spring. Under the Occupy 2012 banner of the “American Spring,” the movement spearheaded the largest protest ever against the Environmental Protection Agency/EPA last Friday in Washington D.C. Hundreds of demonstrators and two alpacas marched to the Environmental Protection Agency headquarters on Friday, the first day of a planned month long National Occupation of D.C. movement (dubbed NOWDC). A multitude of speakers outside the EPA spoke for an hour on social causes ranging from District of Columbia statehood to justice for Trayvon Martin, the unarmed Florida teenager shot dead by a neighborhood...

    Two Occupy Wall Street protesters were collared Thursday for vandalizing subways — a day after a local TV news station recorded the crime, cops said. Jeffrey Brewer, 34, and Aaron Minter, 40, spoke to NY1 News on Wednesday and allowed a news team to follow them as they placed decals on a subway car seats, cops said. The stickers read: “Priority Seating for the 1%.” After receiving a complaint about the underground shenanigans, police watched the news segment when it aired on TV, cops said. … Minter — who has prior arrests for burglary and menacing — gave the TV...

    A historic Seattle bakery has been targeted by a group of protestors who claim the owner has unfair labor practices. Borracchini's Bakery has been located in the Rainier Valley for nearly 90 years, and owner Remo Borracchini said his customers have become like family. Which is why when he started to get complaints that an employee was being rude to customers, he decided to let her go. "I said, 'We can't do this anymore, we just can't do this anymore," Borracchini said. "She said, 'You mean I'm fired?' I said, 'Yes, you are.'" The worker had been with the business...

An offshoot of the group that camped in Dewey Square for 71 days last year until cops broomed them said there will be no canvas this time, just people squatting out in the weather, in the shadow of the Golden Dome. But the cold granite steps already have a name: “Camp Charlie.” “It’s really a 10-day -occupation,” Occupy Boston spokesperson Gunner Smith said about the...
