The Big Fat Clamp comes down in Pittsburgh

LRAD/Pittsbugh

The weird looking round thing on top of that armor vehicle is a LRAD, Long Range Acoustic Device. The weird things hanging off of it are Federal Police officers. 

The long term effects of LRAD on the human brain is unknown. However,  the short and long term effects of a state police force wearing this kind of riot gear are very well known

 

The police were everywhere. Pinning down protesters, creating confrontations and randomly stopping and searching. Cops came from Ohio, Florida and Arizona. If their numbers were not enough, they employed anti-protest technology. A Long Range Acoustic Device was employed to beam out high-volume sounds and Twitter-journalist visually identified a microwave heat machine which wasn’t used, but stood at the ready to repel demonstrators. Such tools of repression have no place inside a democratic society.

Protests Pittsburgh

Globalization Goes Bankrupt.

Every day counts. Every deferral of protest hurts. We should, if we have the time and the ability, make our way to Pittsburgh for the meeting of the G-20 this week rather than do what the power elite is hoping we will do—stay home. Complacency comes at a horrible price.

I’m really too tired to do more than post these links. The cops are using dogs, please give these brave men and women a glance and a thought.
