    The burning of the American flag, while regrettable, has nothing to do with Occupy as a whole. It was, however, a direct response to police brutality and it's quite clear, by reading some of the replies of this thread, that conservatives and liberals alike feel they have the moral highground over the protesters, yet they allow the government to kill in the name of that flag. How hypocritical.
    Yea and all of the Occupy groups are in solidarity with Oakland and Oakland showed not to protest but to steal property that did not belong to them. Not only that but they showed up like this with weapons.

    Yes those mighty shields laced with Peace signs. What amazing weapons against the riot police guns and flash bang grenades.

    You guys are hilarious.

    Did you watch the video in the OP? You did notice that they were trying to use strategy and were throwing stuff at the police right? I wonder what the cops would do if any group of people dressed the same way through stuff at cops used shields and tried to advance on the cops? Do you really see this as acceptable behavior for people that say that they are peaceful? And dont gloss over the fact that they were not even protesting they were trying to illegally obtain a building, and even wrote it down on the signs that they were carrying that they were going to brake the law.

    Where does this behavior end? Whats next ? are they going to start taking over other peoples houses?
    And dont ignore the shield with the A on it. WHat happened too 'oh it was the Black Blocs not everyone'?
    #SolidaritySunday with Oakland Marches in NYC and Across the US; Bank of Ideas Being Evicted in London | OccupyWallSt.org As of 8pm EST, actions are currently happening or planned in response to extreme police violence used against Occupy Oakland yesterday in New York City, Boston, Toronto, Vancouver, Melbourne, Oslo, Philadelphia, DC, Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas, Portland, Tampa, Indianapolis, New Haven, Orlando, Jackson, Des Moines, Hollywood, Baltimore, Portland ME, Tulsa, Denver, St. Louis, Eugene, Nashville, and Detroit. We have also received word that the Bank of Ideas in London is being raided!
    All of those groups listed are confirmed supporters of Black Bloc techniques. So much for peaceful gathers. It would seem that the peaceful method did not work so now the movement is moving into the world of violence against property. How long until it progresses to violence against Americans? I suspect as soon as the property violence method fails they will next target people they deemed as the enemy.

    Us anti-occupiers were correct about the move to property damage so you might want to listen to us now.

    The best defense is a good offense.

    Occupy has been occupying foreclosed properties all over the country for months now, many times successfully.

    My point is that your moral indignation is silly when it sides with the most violent institution in Oakland.

    It doesnt matter how violent the police are, it doesnt change the social responsibility of the citizens. People cant just decide that they own a building, then try to move in. We all know that the people that we are talking about are Anarchists. These Anarchists are engaged in what they believe to be an revolt. Their tactics clearly shows the world that they are trying to create. And the only way that they could succeed is to take the same route that the south did except that these Anarchists are an extreme minority in California. So what they are betting on is convincing enough useful idiots to riot so that Oakland becomes under martial law so that they can say see I told you it was a police state. The purpose of the solidarity with all of the other occupiers is to cause a nation wide martial law situation.

    Its an old model that they have been working on for decades. ANd they are naive enought to think that it will work now because of the protests that swept the middle east and northern Africa.

    Look at these photos these are not just regular Americans wanting justice, these are Anarchists wanting to cause Anarchy.

    It doesnt matter
    Of course it does. It makes you a hypocrite.

    You clearly know nothing about anarchism.

    The purpose of the solidarity with all of the other occupiers is to cause a nation wide martial law situation.
    They don't need to cause one. The US is already a police state.
