No One Is Immortal
By Jim Kirwan
When you watch any of these recent videos you cannot help but notice the casual superiority inherent in the attitudes of the uniformed thugs that might as well be wearing these masks, because all too often this is the simple truth for far too many on the front lines. However behind this obscenity there are lots of real people that can speak and who do have fact-based, first hand knowledge of these continuing crimes against all of us. Here's today's top story from the San Francisco Bay Guardian who did the legwork and brought this story to life.
"Who are the 99 percent - and what are they saying? It's not what you read in the daily papers." Please follow the links and read about all nine of those that are profiled here. (1)
In the same paper there is an editorial that outlines what has happened to San Francisco and why this city is no longer in the frontlines of protest. "While the 99 percent are fighting to hold onto a crowded encampment at Justin Herman Plaza, two new condo projects are moving along in San Francisco that would give the one percent spectacular views from their multimillion-dollar homes on the waterfront.
The Port Commission is holding preliminary meetings on the 8 Washington project, which is about as direct a conflict with the city's General Plan and housing needs as anyone could ever imagine. The developer wants to build 165 of the most expensive condos in the city's history, aimed entirely at the very, very rich. Many will no doubt be used as pieds a terre for people who will live in San Francisco only a few weeks of the year. The project will do nothing to address the desperate need for affordable housing and housing for the middle class.
Rose Pak, the Chinatown business consultant who was central to Lee's campaign, told me a few months ago that she supports the project. Marcia Smolens, one of the city's top lobbyists, is working on it. There will be big money and clout pushing this -- even though there is no rational reason whySan Francisco should ever approve it.
And while BeyondChron claims that gentrifcation and overdevelopment isn't so much of a problem these days because "financing ... development is more difficult than ever," the developers don't seem to have noticed. A Nov. 11 story in the San Francisco Business Times (you can only get a few paragraphs if you don't subscribe) explains that "developers are starting to plan new projects again after more than three years of inactivity" --and one of the biggest is a 284-foot, 160 unit residental highrise at 75 Howard Street. There's a parking garage now on the site, which would be demolished to build condos that one expert told the BizTimes would sell for 1,000 a square foot.
You got that? A 1,000 square-foot one-bedroom unit would go for $1 million.
So we have two major waterfront projects -- both of them high-end luxury condos, both of which would have just lovely views of the OccupySF encampment -- moving forward while the barricades go up and the mayor decides when to evict the protesters. A classic battle for the soul of the city." (2)
And it is this space that is being used by demonstrators to hold Occupy San Francisco demonstrations. . . It could not be more clear, as to what is at stake: Property worth $1,000 a foot or the rights of so many people that are demanding their right to protest our ILLEGAL & completely corrupt government defense of the 1%.
And as far as "organizing the cop-crackdown", nationally goes: Here's another interesting tidbit that also has not been publicized.
"The White House says there's no federal oversight. Speaking November 15 aboard Air Force One, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said "The president's position is that obviously every municipality has to make its own decisions about how to handle these issues."
But a little-known but influential private membership based organization has placed itself at the center of advising and coordinating the crackdown on the encampments. The Police Executive Research Forum, an international non-governmental organization with ties to law enforcement and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, has been coordinating conference calls with major metropolitan mayors and police chiefs to advise them on policing matters and discuss response to the Occupy movement. The group has distributed a recently published guide on policing political events.
Speaking to Democracy Now! On November 17, PERF Executive Director Chuck Wexler acknowledged PERF's coordination of a series of conference-call strategy sessions with big-city police chiefs. These calls were distinct from the widely reported national conference calls of major metropolitan mayors.
The coordination of political crackdowns on the Occupy movement has been conducted behind closed doors, with city officials and PERF refusing to say how many cities participated in the conference calls and the exact nature of the discussions. Reports of at least a dozen cities and some indication of as many as 40 accepting PERF advice and/or strategic documents include San Francisco, Seattle, New York, Portland, Oakland, Atlanta, and WashingtonDC."

So the next time you are told that the protesters are just a bunch of hippie bums, too lazy to work, and too shiftless to be part of any real society - please refer them to this story and the others in this weeks' Bay Guardian, from the heart of a war-torn city that has already been taken over by the Zionista scum looking for a place to stash their illegally acquired gains. . .
And the next time you find yourself in a demonstration why not remind the thugs in uniform of this very particular phrase:
1) The Faces and Voices of Occupy
2) One Percent Assault the Waterfront
3) The Cop Group Coordinating the Occupy Crackdowns
