Man shot in face with rubber bullet during Oakland raid

Police violently evict Occupy Oakland, attacking protesters with teargas, flash grenades and rubber bullets, arresting dozens and shooting one man in the face.

On January 29, 2011, Hillary Clinton told Hosni Mubarak: “We urge the Egyptian authorities not to prevent peaceful protests.” On October 25, 2011, US police told peaceful protesters: “I hereby declare this to be an unlawful assembly. If you refuse to go now, chemical agents will be used.” Orwell rolls in his grave once more at the blatant doublespeak.

Over 500 riot police violently evicted the 350-man protest camp in Oakland, California early in the morning on Tuesday. At least 85 protesters were arrested as clouds of teargas and the noise of flash grenades turned downtown Oakland into a dramatic scene resembling nothing less than an urban warzone. At least one man was shot in the face with a rubber bullet.

Another was caught in the middle of a cloud of teargas in a wheelchair, as police kept lobbing canisters at him. In another shocking video, police can be seen throwing a flash grenade right onto a group of people trying to evacuate an injured protester. For all purposes, the truth is now self-evident: the American state is waging war on its own people.

‎Let’s remember the remember the words of Abraham Lincoln: “any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up, and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable — a most sacred right — a right, which we hope and believe, is to liberate the world.”

The videos speak for themselves. For more information, check Occupy Oakland.

Note the media propaganda in the title of the video below: why don’t they write “police clash with protesters”? Watch how the policeman brutalizes the young lady.

the death of Muammar Kadhafi was a strong message for all dictators said Barack Obama the other day… he probably should said it was a strong message to the wall street terrorists… and to his police…

Stay Strong. Do not cower in the face of adversity. All are scared, but not all are brave.
