It is sad that the actions of the few window smashers were what has been pasted all over the corporate headlines today. Know the truth! See www.prairiefirenews.com for our views on the occupy protests. We're the voice of "occupy" and the occupiers for the 99% in Rural America.

Has anyone read adbusters stuff recently? I really like it a lot, but i'll be very confused if they condemn the militant nature of the oakland stuff... it seems like exactly what they were arguing for.

What is Military Industrial Complex?
An all-too friendly relationship that may develop between defense contractors and government forces, where both sides receive what they are perceivably looking for: a successful military engagement for warplanners and financial profit for those manning the corporate boardrooms. It can be viewed as a “war for profit” theory.

Military-Industrial Complex Speech by Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1961

The term the "military-industrial complex" was made famous by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in his 1961 farewell address. Eisenhower warned: "In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist." http://hnn.us/articles/869.html

Black Bloc tactics have historically been infiltrated by agent provocateurs. Real anarchists don't wear Nikes. Adbusters uses photos of Black Bloc actions because its media candy and it gives an edgy relevancy to its cause and writing. They should instead examine the nature of Black Bloc tactics as a pretext for police violence at peaceful assemblies and out the police within these actions. It might look cool to show pics of people breaking windows or setting fire to police cruisers and play on base emotions but it's sloppy, sensationalist journalism. Just look online to see all the identical costumes these infiltrators wear at protests- matching boots, brand new matching backpacks, same jeans and fucking Nikes! Wouldn't real anarchists be wearing Black Spot sneakers instead? I know tons of very smart, coordinated anarchists involved in direct action and all of them think Black Bloc is a police tactic.

You dirty thugs. So you're the ones who throw M-80s, rocks, bottles, pots and pans, and paint at the cops. What a bunch of thieving animals. And now you strike? Where's a good earthquake when you need it. You are a bunch of lowlife scum who do not deserve to walk the streets in this nation. This country was based on personal, economic, and religious freedom, including PRIVATE PROPERTY RIGHTS. Get the F*CK out if you don't like that. This is not a socialist nation. Grow up or GET OUT.
