AF and Occupy Wall Street



This is happening in many cities.  A update from a American Front Cadre:

“I along with other local American Front and some supporters have been going out and working with the occupy ** movement  (city removed for security purposes). Once we got to the demo we spent time talking and getting to know people and lending a hand where we were needed.  We blended in without issues. The cops are pretty calm as of right now but I am suspicious about that. It seems too much like a tactic to me. They are just being a little too friendly. The occupy ** movement has asked me to make a security team there. We’ve spotted 7 undercover cops in the 2 days we have been there and have brought it to the group’s attention.  It has been an interesting couple of days. We  don’t think things are going to stay peaceful for long.  The consensus is  if tear gas flies and the cops go  aggressive  they will be met with aggression. If the cops keep it peaceful though, we  will keep it peaceful. We could feel the tension  with the pigs, they are getting impatient because no one is leaving. Even after arresting 23 people last night they are still there. Our militants  were  there during the arrests but the group we were  in wouldn’t let the cops encircle us. They couldn’t get close enough to us to make arrests but the people who were sitting down in the street or the once protecting the kitchen and medical tent got pulled away and cuffed. Took the cops from 11pm to 8am to get 23 arrests. Our  feeling is if they come back though the gloves will come off and things might get intense.  All the AF flyers we handed out were received positively.  More news soon.”

Mayor Bloomberg and NYPD vs OWS

NYC Mayor Bloomberg, NYPD threaten to evict Occupy Wall Street Friday morning|

October 13, 2011

New York, NY – “We are determined to remain united and to stay,” states Tracy Molm, a participant in Occupy Wall Street. Molm is one of the 1000+ protesters in Zuccotti Park Thursday night, Oct. 13. City authorities say they will start ‘cleaning’ the park Friday morning.

A statement from the movement at Occupy Wall Street reads, “Mayor Bloomberg and the NYPD notified Occupy Wall Street participants about plans to ‘clean the park’ – the site of the Wall Street protests – tomorrow starting at 7:00 a.m. ‘Cleaning’ was used as a pretext to shut down ‘Bloombergville’ a few months back, and to shut down peaceful occupations elsewhere.

“Bloomberg says that the park will be open for public usage following the cleaning, but with a notable caveat: Occupy Wall Street participants must follow the ‘rules.’

“NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly has said that they will move in to clear us and we will not be allowed to take sleeping bags, tarps, personal items or gear back into the park.”
