Our government (Dems. and GOP) want to ban most of the Occupy Movement

Yes this is what a police state looks like. Congress just passed a bill that will make it a felony to be in a so called “restricted area.” The term restricted is clouded in the “national defence” jargon for legitimacy. What is that area going to be? It could mean that people protesting the Democrats (who all voted for this) or the Republican convention grounds can be convicted of a felony, if they wonder into the wrong area. Anyone in a park after they have been told to leave could end up with a felony, depending on who defines “restricted area.”
With felony convictions many people, such as teachers and other government professionals, would be fired from their jobs. Felons can’t own guns and they can’t vote. So maybe that is the intent of the law, to make sure that Occupyers can’t vote and can’t hold respectable jobs.

To be sure, the status quo (both parties) doesn’t like the Occupy movement. It outright exposes and challenges the authority of the capitalist system, both the stooges who run for office and the moneyed people who back them. This is the most serious challenge to the United police States of Amerikkka’s government since the 1960’s It may even be more of a challenge because there are a lot of older activist around who remember that time and know what kind of dirty tricks the government will try on us. (See Kasama Project; Enemies Within: On Occupy and Infiltration).

This will make it almost impossible to challenge our leaders, political or economical with out breaking Federal laws. As many Occupyers have said, this is no different than the civil rights movement where people had to struggle for their rights against the establishment’s authority. Many in Occupy may only be reformist. But any attack on the capitalist and imperialist system is a welcomed change. Let’s all stand up to the challenge -សតិវ អតុ

US Congress expands authoritarian anti-protest law

A bill passed Monday in the US House of Representatives and Thursday in the Senate would expand existing anti-protest laws making it a felony—a serious criminal offense punishable by a lengthy prison term—to “enter or remain in” an area designated as “restricted.”
The bill—H.R. 347, or the “Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011”—was passed by unanimous consent in the Senate, while only Ron Paul and two other Republicans voted against the bill in the House of Representatives (the bill passed 388-3). Not a single Democratic politician voted against the bill.
