Pray For Us: Father Who Art In Heaven Hallowed Be Thy Name

The Occupy Movement that it is brewing the Revolution

We know who you are, behind your thick mask of steel, power and salaried labor, you are my father, my brother, my husband, my sister, my mother. You are My Family Stay Human and protect us from harm.

I m speaking as an American Natural of this beautiful American Continent, that for the last 400 hundred years have been hijacked by foreign forces driven by evil spirit. Apparently we have enjoyed peace but has been at the expenses of other nations, see around, the destruction is been done to every spot on Earth.

The conflicts created by our leaders has created an atmosphere of murder and pillage everywhere on earth, the natural resources has been depleted to the minimum sustainable levels, the social and economical chaos is not possible to control any longer.

The time is closing on us, the time for acting instead of praying is necessarily howling in our ears every morning that we wake up and a new “Bill” is enacted against our liberties.

The constitution is an eroding document enacted for our protection, every time that a new “Bill” is signed, one more civil liberty is stripped away from us. We do not need to be lawyers to protect our constitutional rights, our bill of rights.

The time to act is a premium-urgent matter, leave the prayers for night time , the time to act  is around the corner, it’s in every Occupy spot in our country.

Some more brave than others have made the switch already, some more desperate for a change than others have started acting in their behalf. Some starving fathers and mother unable to feed their family have taken to the Occupy Spots to try to salvage some crumbs from a lost economy that only enriched the 1 % of our society.

We are not Mad, We are the others, the 1 % that can not stand the inequality any more

We were programed to drive as a robots, just occupied to survive. All the social diseases such alcoholism, drug addiction, poverty, socially engineered poor healthy habits and under funded education were specifically and purposely inadequate to keep you busy and uncomfortably numb.

The unrest is felt every where; in the gas pump, in the supermarket, the University, the factory, the “office”, the coffee shop even in the busiest underground freeways where the homeless live.

Some desperate housewives, nothing to do with soap opera, forced to hopelessly by the banksters and the blind eye of our American Government are adding their misery and  their bodies to gross the lines of the Occupy Spots in America, they have nothing else to lose.

After the President Obama economic plan for the rich that was too much, too long, too expected has sparked the social unrest in the US.

I don’t think we have a choice to turn back the clock, we left our welfare unattended for so long, thinking that Uncle Sam would fix our economical situation, we are half responsible for every bit of calamity we are suffering.

Remember that famous Statement: “First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.” by Rev. Martin Niemoller (1937)

We can add up so many negligence acts of pure numbness, and carelessness from our part that pertained to our actual situations, new twist on the wording and we get karma pay right back at us.

“First they came for the Muslims, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Muslim.

Then they came to detain immigrants indefinitely solely upon the certification of the Attorney General, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t an immigrant.

Then they came to eavesdrop on suspects consulting with their attorneys, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a suspect.

Then they came to prosecute non-citizens before secret military commissions, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a non-citizen.

Then they came to enter homes and offices for unannounced “sneak and peek” searches, and I didn’t speak up because I had nothing to hide.

Then they came to reinstate Cointelpro and resume the infiltration and surveillance of domestic religious and political groups, and I didn’t speak up because I had stopped participating in any groups.

Then they came for anyone who objected to government policy because it aided the terrorists and gave ammunition to America’s enemies, and I didn’t speak up because…… I didn’t speak up.

Then they came for me……. and by that time no one was left to speak up.”

               By Stephen Rohde,  President of the ACLU of Southern California.

Let’s not forget that everything started in America with the erosion of our precious civil liberties, and the taking away by thugs of our privacy rights, with lies and well paid propaganda that was serving the coffers of a war industry, well ingrained in the conscientiousness of our American Society. A industry that worked so laboriously to take away your children, bathed in a faked patriotism since the cradle. The Government become not your protector but the servile slave of the Corporate America, making laws to serve their masters and becoming the prostitute of Justice. “Working for the best Paying Hand” .

It is not a crime to ask for justice, dissent is our right. Use it wisely while you can.

And as our society keep sinking in despair, dropping deeper in the dark hole of abuse by the insatiable greed of the corporate world and the support of our leaders,  other hands are reaching out between the mud of desperation, and even if you judge on moral grounds or out of ignorance without thinking that their doings don’t affect your daily life, but their suppression does, it is a sign of the times.

Understanding the rights of others is the basis to guarantee that we keep enjoying our bill of rights and that no government official can design a law to strip that away from us.

And the stripping and the twisting keeps the ladder and the traps and the wording keeps changing and your rights smudging down.

“First they came for the hackers.
But I never did anything illegal with my computer,

Then they came for the pornographers.
But I thought there was too much smut on the Internet anyway,

Then they came for the anonymous remailers.
But a lot of nasty stuff gets sent from anon.penet.fi,

Then they came for the encryption users.
But I could never figure out how to work PGP anyway,
so I didn’t speak up.

Then they came for me.

And by that time there was no one left to speak up.”

PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS

For many years they created murders out of us, the world started hating us, because they took decisions in our name and did great damage to other nations, if we could just have acted with Truth, Justice and Peace, we could have other society, more wiser, more equal and less convulsed with war.
Some have escaped from the lethargy long time ago, and they have been giving us strength with their compassion, leadership with their actions, they are an army of peace activists around the globe, they are musicians, writers, photographers, actors, poets, directors, ordinary citizens that without blinking an eye they defend the weak, the voiceless, the poor, the oppressed from every land.

First they made us  egocentric fools, thinking that we were right to murder, bomb, invade, colonize, exterminate, “democratize”,  all in the name of our mighty power. Fools Fools we let them created pariahs out of us.

Now they turn against us, we can not pray any more. How desperate are you? Do you still have “Capital” to invest in their game?. And as we move along, the Occupy Movement keeps growing, even if you do not see it in your silver screen.

We can not turn the clock back but we can help others to wake up, your compassion is guiding you to lead our society to a more humane society, where Truth, Justice and Peace are the Pillars that support us and make our journey easy to navigate to a simpler society where Love is what move us to fight for us, for you, for them for our Blue Dot, our Mother Earth.

And the twist keeps getting closer to home.

Then they came for the middle class but I did not speak out because I was not part of the middle class, and I let them destroy the buffer zone of our economy.

Then They Came for the poor and I did not speak out because I was not poor, and I let them starve them to death, unable to pay their medical bills, unable to educate their children and they converted them in drug addicts, street gangsters and thugs, and they destroyed the left over of the sweet hard masses working class that was supporting the Our Nation On Their Shoulders.

Then they came for the homeless, and I did not speak out because I was not homeless.

Then we all became homeless, right-less, vulnerable to a police-state-Fascist- like society that wants to put us in concentration camps for complaining of our misery. Fools Fools we let them destroy Our American Dream.

Love me as if I m you, compassion is not an alien feeling but a natural state of your mind, let it reign onto you and love everyone and everything that is creation.

Join Us all to into this Incredible Invisible Revolution that is making waves in the consciousnesses of every soul/mind/spirit that it is open to a change.
Remember The Thoughts are manifestations that want  to come out to explore the third dimensional bound that keeps you from knowing how capable you are of loving one another, from exercising your compassion for every creature that exist, and with that, brake free to a new world order, where  Love is abundant and free to give.
Do not allow the structured social/economical chaos to stop you from freeing yourself and help others.
Stay Human, Peace Be Upon You and Bless All Men of Good Will.

Good evening, London. Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of the everyday routine, the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition. I enjoy them as much as any bloke. But in the spirit of commemoration – whereby those important events of the past, usually associated with someone’s death or the end of some awful bloody struggle, are celebrated with a nice holiday – I thought we could mark this November the fifth, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat….. Excerpt from V for Vendetta

Take what it is ours, softly move the wrath of oppression to the sides, do not stumble on violence, is not the way, move ahead to the next evolutionary level of our society. Do it with love.

Love can move mountains, love and compassion can unite us all. Peace To All.

If I m able to preach love and feel that is possible to change my world for a better one then I m in Love with my world, and you are part of my world. Help me to help you, Help you To Help Us All. I can not do without you, because I m part of you, and you are part of me. We are One. Remember!, One Creation!, One Family on Earth!.

Indeed I m in love!

Our Father, who art in heaven
hallowed be thy Name,

Forgive our trespasses that same way that you forgive us, do not allow us to become numb with injustice.

Give us strength to maintain our focus on what it is important in our lives. Do not allow father that destruction of our Earth, the war waste is polluting every green land, river and tree.

Stop the lunatics war makers, that  are corrupting every mind and heart on Earth.

Take away greed to the heavens, and transform into into compassion and make it  to rain on every spot on earth.

Take away hate from the hearts of every men and fill it with love and light to make Love not War any more.

Forgive our sins, and accept our deeds as a token of peace. Peace Be On Earth and Above the Sea, under the Sky and in every heart that be.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.


“Total Policing” And The Criminalisation Of Dissent

dis·sent  (d-snt)

intr.v. dis·sent·ed, dis·sent·ing, dis·sents

1. To differ in opinion or feeling; disagree. –2. To withhold assent or approval. =n.-1. Difference of opinion or feeling; disagreement. –2. The refusal to conform to the authority or doctrine of an established church; nonconformity.-3. Law A justice’s refusal to concur with the opinion of a majority, as on a higher court. Also called dissenting opinion. The right of any individual to not conform, the right of any individual to complain ‘what he disagree upon’. The right of any individual to act according to his believe

The scale of the police operation mounted Wednesday against a relatively small and entirely peaceful protest against UK education cuts shows that the ruling elite is no longer prepared to tolerate any form of political and social opposition.

According to the varying estimates of the organisers, the media and the police, the deployment of 4,000 officers, many in full riot gear, represents a police-protester ratio of one-to-one or two-to-one.

New Metropolitan Police Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe described the protest as a test of his policy of “Total Policing.” This is what it looked like: London was placed on virtual lock-down, with all major roads along the march’s route blocked off by ranks of police, riot vans, mounted officers and ten-foot-high barricades.

Here To Serve and Protect: Law enforcement officials shall at all times fulfill the duty imposed on them by law, by serving the community and by protecting all persons against illegal acts, consistent with the high degree of responsibility required by their profession. Law enforcement officials shall respect and protect human dignity and maintain and uphold the human rights of all persons. Law enforcement officials shall not commit any act of corruption, abuse of power, or excessive force The term "law enforcement officials" includes all officers of the law, whether appointed or selected, who exercise police powers, especially the powers of arrest or detention. In countries where police powers are exercised by military authorities, whether uniformed or not, or by State security forces, the definition of law enforcement officials shall be regarded as including such services.

Marchers were met at the rail, underground and coach stations and handed an 11-page brochure, with the capitalized title “TOTAL POLICING” on the front and back. It warned that police would use section 60 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act of 1994 to search people and enforce the removal of masks.

The march was dragooned by ranks of police at the front, back and both sides along the three-mile route. Helicopters circled overhead, making extensive videos of those taking part.

In a further provocation, the march was stopped every ten metres, meaning that a three-mile route took three hours to walk. This periodic kettling enabled the police to go into the crowd at certain points, pushing and barging people in the hope of provoking a reaction.

A statement issued on the day warned that the planned rally at the London Wall had to end in less than an hour and the area had to be completely cleared in two hours. An attempt to set up a tent camp in Trafalgar Square, in solidarity with the Occupy protest at St Paul’s Cathedral, was cleared in minutes as police dragged away those involved.

The effort by a group of electricians—striking against management threats to cut their wages by up to 35 percent—to join up with the student protest was similarly met with police violence. The electricians’ march was encircled so they were virtually imprisoned. When some tried to break away, riot police waded in with batons and knocked workers to the ground. Police were reportedly armed with stun grenades. Names and addresses were taken under the authority of Section 60 of the Public Order Act.

The Unite union encouraged workers to march to parliament for a lobby of MPs. This sparked shouts of “We want to march with the students!”

As the march set off, hundreds of electricians marched towards Fleet Street where they broke through police lines. Police then drew batons and contained a section of the workers.

Before the march, the commander in charge, Simon Pountain, told a press conference that the use of water cannon was not planned, but plastic bullets had been authorised—the first time ever in England.

Over 450 letters were sent out warning anyone arrested in connection with previous public order offences that a repeat offence would lead to arrest and trial “at the earliest opportunity.” Many of these letters were sent to people with no previous convictions, pointing to the existence of a police database of those whose sole “crime” was to have engaged in a previous protest.

In an article reprinted in the Police Oracle, the Guardian’s crime correspondent blithely described the pre-authorisation of baton rounds and the sending of threatening letters as nothing new. “What is new,” she said, was the decision by Pountain to make this public.

On 09 November 2011, Baton rounds and public order policing

New Scotland Yard

Metropolitan Police Service officers are deployed to facilitate peaceful protests and that is the aim today. A range of tactics are available to us if there is criminality and violence associated with the event, including the authority to deploy baton rounds in extreme circumstances – however at this moment in time there is no intention to deploy baton rounds.

Officers policing the route will not be armed with baton rounds. These are carried by a small number of trained officers. This is a tactic which has always been available to deploy in the most extreme circumstances.

To give context to their use, the MPS had authority to use baton rounds during the disorder this summer but did not do so. This tactic requires pre-authority, and would take time to deploy, and is one of a range of tactics we have had available for public order, and not used, in the past.

Authorisation for baton rounds was given during the summer rioting in Britain’s cities, she said, and “perhaps less well known… they were also authorised for use during the student demonstration against cuts a year ago.”

The police are also to be given additional powers, she noted, by Home Secretary Theresa May, whereby a “police superintendent will be able to clear the public out of a specific area during a demonstration—a power not available since the Riot Act was removed from the statute book in 1973.”

Last October’s student protest saw over 150 arrests, both during and after the event. This summer’s riots—provoked by the police killing of an unarmed man—were followed by over 2,000 arrests and over 11,000 prosecutions with long custodial sentences handed out for the most trivial offences.

A similar picture is repeated internationally. Wherever workers and young people seek to protest the imposition of savage austerity cuts, they are met with brutal repression.

In Greece, for example, the October 20 general strike protest was attacked by 15,000 riot police and Syntagma Square was flooded with tear gas. In the United States, the Occupy Wall Street protests spread nationally after two weeks in large measure in response to the October 1 arrest of 700 protesters—almost one-third—of those demonstrating on the Brooklyn Bridge. Since then, various local police forces have mounted attacks using riot gear, tear gas and other weapons, bringing the national total of those arrested to over 3,000.

Observations of a Jailed Journalist A journalist reporting on the Occupy Wall Street protest is arrested for doing his job. He documents several cases of excessive police force, including police pepper spraying women who were already restrained behind a barrier. This is a symptom of the ills of our society. Until we can act civilly towards each other we cannot affect true social reform. We lose when the people in power, in this case the police, can use any means to achieve their goals.

The resort to repressive measures is a measure of the extreme polarisation between the classes.

In Britain, the Riot Act now being cited was originally drafted in 1714, making rioting punishable by death. This was reduced to transportation for life in 1837.

Its most famous usage was in the 1819 Peterloo Massacre, in Manchester, when a cavalry charge against 80,000 protesters demanding parliamentary reform and relief from crushing economic hardship killed 15 and injured 700.

In Glasgow, on Black Friday 1919, riot police and 10,000 troops were despatched against workers campaigning for shorter work hours. Black Friday took place in the aftermath of the 1917 October Revolution in Russia, day that John Reed died in 1920, at a time when Britain’s elite feared a “Bolshevist uprising.” The fact that similar powers are being enacted today, first covertly and now amid official fanfare, should be a warning to the working class in Britain, Europe and internationally.

Today, the vast majority of economic experts — both on the Left and on the Right — have come to the conclusion that Greece is insolvent. It just cannot realistically repay its overwhelming debt while the economy keeps contracting as a result of the brutish austerity measures that Ackermann and Trichet have been prescribing.

Today, a fabulously wealthy oligarchy dictates all aspects of social life in pursuit of ever-greater personal enrichment. Under conditions of worsening economic crisis, this translates into demands for cuts and austerity for millions, for which there is no possibility of securing a democratic mandate.

This determines the moves by bourgeois governments around the world to enact measures characteristic of a police state and, in Greece, the threat of a military coup.

Revolution is coming. A new fiscal, economic and political order will be established. And given what you see about the world around you, the corruption, the fraud, the crimes…do you see any way around this? I want to see corrupt politicians and businessmen in handcuffs, making a long and painful perp walk. I want to see power returned to The People.

The response of workers and young people must be the building of a mass socialist movement and the adoption of a revolutionary perspective for a truly democratic and egalitarian society, based on the expropriation of the oligarchy and the organization of production to meet the social rights of all to education, health care, housing and a well-paid job.

More On Global Protests…

Sacrament California:By Kevin Kearney,12 November 2011

Sacramento—the state capital of California and the home of Democratic Governor Jerry Brown—has spearheaded efforts to criminalize the Occupy protests over the last month.

Just days after 700 anti-Wall Street protesters were trapped on the Brooklyn Bridge by the New York Police Department and arrested, officials in Sacramento, California quickly followed suit, initiating the first arrests of Occupy protesters on the West Coast.

First police action against Occupy Canada movement—more planned:By Carl Bronski,11 November 2011

In the early hours of Wednesday morning, police in London, Ontario forcibly evicted several hundred supporters of the Occupy Canada movement who, two weeks ago, established a tent community in that city’s Victoria Park.

The mass eviction, staged in the dead of night, was the first such police action in Canada against the Occupy movement. It came during the same week that mayors and police chiefs from municipalities across the country began to publicly issue eviction threats against the Occupy encampments that have sprung up in at least twenty cities from coast to coast.
