What we can see is that the power of Elites and their wealth gives them the
ability to control all policing and MIC – which they must do in order to prevent
REVOLUTION against them by the people –
If it wasn’t for this brutality by police blocking the attempts at REVOLUTION by citizens –
whether against the War in Vietnam – where police rioted at Dem Convention/1968 and
bashed heads – the protesters would have succeeded in bringing that war to an end.
Or the post WWII workers attempts for UNIONS HERE – (never making it to the South,
evidently) – where heads were bashed – only succeeded in bringing 39% unionization to
US – but changed the nation. Until Elites destroyed UNIONS here again – what do
we have left now . . . 7% unionization – maybe slight increase in fight back?
The many protests since then against the violence of our US/CIA corrupted government –
with “illegal wars of aggression” – protests against war on Iraq didn’t stop it – and fortunately
the HUGE NYC protests didn’t turn violent – but the threat of brutal policing was there and
has been there in EVERY protest – and we didn’t stop the war on Iraq.
Remember the “NETTING” of protesters which included people in wheel chairs and
parents pushing strollers?
Imagine protesters, wrists tied with plastic – bleeding and turning purple –
left on hot buses for 5 hours and longer – same thing happening now – left for hours by police.
Tires of protesters slashed? Including those of the press, medics, etal?
I have a friend who is a cop. He talks about working for years in one of the worst areas (which I won’t name), and continually being bombarded with trouble makers and drug users and dealers.
Of course they are suffering – same as our soldiers are suffering – they know what they are
doing in other nations is wrong – they’re brainwashed – and they’re performing for BREAD.
Destroying our economy and “full employment” – decades now of tens of millions of American
citizens unemployed – with unemployment benefits limited to 2 years – and with WELFARE
guarantees gone – is also part of it to control the behavior of citizens and workers – and cops!
Let’s try to go on with John Lennon’s IMAGINE -- and as much as possible try to make change
with all the respect we can for one another and our opponents –
Those who have brought us positive change before – African-Americans here in overturning
their own ENSLAVEMENT – The Underground Railway – and the protests of the 1960’s for
Civil Rights didn’t use violence – and they won.
Women working against 2000 years of oppression continue on with non-violence –
And AA protests right now show us the same thing – though AA’s have had to POLICE THEIR
OWN PROTESTS because police refused to do it – and they have done it – showing us once
against who they are and what they’re made of.
And likely many more examples I can’t think of right now –
It has long been the CIA running DRUGS in AA communities to destroy their people
and their communities – trust we all know that?
