DAPL used helicopters to down drones, cut live feeds as Rosebud camp swept

Forty seven water protectors were arrested yesterday as militarized police cleared both Oceti and Rosebud camps along the Cannonball River in Standing Rock. Helicopters flew low, not to support the ground troops conducting tent to tent raids, but to interfere with resistance drones recording the spectacle. Drone operators report their links being jammed and their drones being forced into collisions if they were unable to avoid the Homeland Security choppers. There were many live feeds being broadcast from drones, long distance cameras and on the front lines. Once Oceti camp was cleared, one by one the feeds were interrupted and dropped. When connections resumed, viewers learned that Rosebud camp too was swept and cleared. Rosebud was on reservation land, not disputed treaty land, but BIA officers helped by militarized police evicted everyone.

Two arrested at Colorado Springs bank, asking Wells Fargo to divest from DAPL

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO- Water Protectors Jerima King (on left) and Karyna Lemus were arrested inside a downtown bank on Friday while trying to convey a message to Wells Fargo Bank to divest its interest in Energy Transfer's controversial Dakota Access Pipeline. Protesters were denied entry into the Wells Fargo main location but marched to a nearby branch and entered its lobby before police were called. Several dozen Springs activists participated in coordination with protests at Wells Fargo banks across the country. 49155

Thousands rally in Denver against wall and Muslim Ban

DENVER, COLORADO- Thousands streamed into Civic Center Park to spend Saturday afternoon listening to speeches against President Trump's MUSLIM BAN. Lots of families with kids so I kept my sign on the fringe pointed outward. I don't usually favor profanity but this slogan was spotted at New York's JFK airport last Satruday, then replicated across the country the same weekend. I spotted several at the Denver rally AND in Colorado Springs, because I think, NOT TODAY MOTHERFUCKER says it best. Racism, bigotry and wanton abuse of power is obscene.

Well, it DOES have the word “correct” in it

Just a synonym for "right". One of the candidates for a high office said putting Ms Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill was "pure political correctness" Woo hoo! Hallelujah! It's finally been decided that politics should be done Right! and doing right is good politics! As for Jackson, apart from being a slaveholder, he was a real estate tycoon who sold land before the residents of the land were even informed they were being evicted, because of their skin color. A racist thief in other words. And a murderer, let's not forget that part. He couldn't do the evictions without a credible threat of killing people if they didn't give it up. And he had a whole shitload of people killed. American people, in case that makes a lot more difference to Some People than it does to me. It would be really kewl to have a picture of the old racist bastard burning in Hell, but I suspect that establishment doesn't allow cameras.

Spotted at Denver #BlackLivesMatter march: police gun mocking public fear of lethal force

DENVER, COLORADO- It may not have been the motorcycle cop who was overheard at Sunday's #BlackLivesMatter march -commemorating the one-year anniversary of the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson- telling a fellow officer "they're upset about a Nigger who was killed", but one DPD biker photographed had decorated his sidearm with flair one might hope wasn't standard-issue. Stuck on the handle of his Glock was a variant of a smiley emoticon which mocked the apprehension a subject might feel upon seeing the unholstering of lethal force. 44427

Black Lives Matter 5280 hold Denver march in memory of Michael Brown

DENVER, COLORADO- A coalition of Colorado activists led by Black Lives Matter 5280 marched through the state capitol on Sunday to mark the one-year anniversary of the killing of Michael Brown by Ferguson police.

Denver Police Out of Service

DENVER, COLORADO- Spotted downtown. Did you know a police car can be "off-duty"? Can private interests now hire public assets like a rent-a-cruiser with their rent-a-cops?

The Every Cinco de Mayo Piata Bash

DENVER, COLORADO- Anonymous dedicated May's Every5th to victims of Denver police violence. For Cinco de Mayo, Anons brought PINATAS in the likeness of the DPD! Many "Every Cinco" attendees were victims of the pepper spray incident of April 29, when DPD riot cops tried to exterminate its infestation of stubborn marchers by fumigating them with cayenne pepper. In response, Anons considered macing the piatas, but aerosol wasn't going to bust these piggies open and guests were eager to get to the chocolates and FTP pins inside. Participants took turns whacking the pigs with UMBRELLAS, Occupy Hong Kong's answer to pepper spray. After an interminable beating the pigsters gave up. 43065

PHOTOS: DPD riot cops deploy pepper spray like it was Youtube repellent

DENVER, COLORADO- It started with a cop falling off his motorcycle, being pushed it's alleged, by a bicyclist. Paramilitary officers piled on the cyclist while playing Orkin Man to Civic Center Park's infestation of free speech. Photos from Denver's April 29 march against police violence reveal that pepper spray was used less to disperse the hundred or so marchers than to repel Youtube bites.

NYPD loses pissing-in-the-wind contest with FloodWallStreet pepper spray op

NEW YORK, NEW YORK- Alright, just for laughs, here are two photos of the pepper spray escalation at Flood Wall Street, taken Sept 22. Both are cropped for emphasis but below you can see the full images which show the poor NYPD faces wincing after being hit by their own pepper spray. We've all heard about IQ-caps in the popo recruiting process, evidently these cops pass/failed the pissing-in-the-wind test. Hong Kong Occupiers are wielding umbrellas against chemical attacks, if pro-democracy pNGOs really want to help, send them leaf blowers. 40936

What good is a ‘Peace’ group when it allows itself to be bullied into silence?

'Jorge Gonzalez, executive director of Coffee Strong in Lakewood (South Tacoma, Washington area) , called for a congressional investigation into why Fort Lewis-McChords leadership is failing its soldiers. The shop, located near the sewing center, provides counseling and other outreach to Lewis-McChord soldiers. The organization had planned a Monday night vigil for the victims of Sundays attacks but canceled it out of concern it would be seen as criticizing the Army and its soldiers.' See Lewis-McChord soldiers concerned. 31646

Thirty year military veteran, Brian Cloughley, writes in the latest online weekend edition of CounterPunch just exactly what he thinks about Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis, who continues to head up the U.S. Central Command in Asia. The following is what he has to say in brief... 30039

MIND THE GAP, chides Occupy Denver

DENVER- Concert, 1000-strong march, and the customary Broadway sidewalk shenanigans. Here's a paint-tub drummer, PVC didjeridoo and my vote for best sign: MIND THE GAP. Saturday's musical festivities in Civic Center Park meshed well with the annual Zombie Crawl, but the day's highlight came after dark, when Denver's anarchist community held a march against police brutality in memory of DPD victim Marvin Booker. The unpermitted route began at Denver Zoo and defined "Whose streets? OUR STREETS!" as it took 23rd, York, Colfax, Broadway, around OCCUPY DENVER's CC park and into the 16th Street Mall where nocturnal Zombies swelled the ranks and found themselves chanting and carrying the banners STOP POLICE TERRORISM and LAW ENFORCEMENT: END YOUR WAR AGAINST THE PEOPLE.

If you forgot which flag was behind the 9-11 false flag, it’s red, white and blue.

COLORADO COLLEGE- The ultra conservative Young America's Foundation erected a September 11th memorial on the grounds of Colorado College consisting of little American flags stuck in the grass to commemorate the 2,977 lives lost ten years ago, since avenged 500 fold. 27575
