Gary Ruskin/CorporatePolicy:

Giant corporations are employing highly unethical or illegal tools of espionage against nonprofit organizations with near impunity, according to a new report by Essential Information.  The report, titled Spooky Business, documents how corporations hire shady investigative firms staffed with former employees of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), National Security Agency (NSA), US military, Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), Secret Service and local police departments to target nonprofit organizations.

                     Sundown 22 September

Between now and September 22 if #FreeBarrettBrown – #FreeBB  can raise $20,000, an anonymous donor will match it, dollar for dollar.

Its now that Barrett really needs people to donate. This is more than just one man in a Texas jail, held with no bail or bond. This is about the freedoms of the press and the freedoms of speech on a digital platform.
For too long we have all seen a gradual slide into State militarism.
Armed conflict around the world is at a point never seen in history except in world wars, running parallel to an erosion of civil liberties.

Barrett through his work in recent times has sought to deeply investigate the private contractors and security firms. His work has been invaluable to researchers into Trapwire and EndGame Systems providing valuable threads to investigative journalist who still report on issues raised by Barrett today.

Barrett has an abrasive style of investigative journalism which led some people to reach the wrong conclusion on Barrett. He wore his heart on his sleeve and was harranged for his “faggatory” which led to him only becomming more endeared to the internet collective.

What has happened to Barrett is something which could happen to any digital activist anywhere in the world.

Please donate …HELP Barrett take advantage of the Sundown deal.

“don’t wait, donate!!”

Barrett Brown – Message to Supporters

In 9/11, Aaron Swartz, Alex Jones, Anonymous, Bahrain, Barack Obama, Barrett Brown, Bilderberg 2013, Bradley Manning, Egypt, Jeremy Hammond, Julian Assange, leaksource, LEAKSOURCE ORIGINAL NEWS, Occupy Wall Street, OpMetalGear, Police State, Politics, WikiLeaks on August 20, 2013 at 7:45 PM

Barrett Brown has dispatched a communique forth with presented to you here

Statement from Barrett to supporters, August 19th

Over the last year I have been humbled by the degree of support I have received from information activists across the globe. In particular, I’d like to thank Kevin Gallagher, Gregg Housh and Lauren Pespisa for their continuing efforts in raising funds and keeping the public informed about the case. But I also owe a debt of gratitude to everyone who has so much as posted a tweet about this matter; in doing so, you have turned this affair into a new opportunity to educate the nation about what the government and its corporate partners are doing behind closed doors and the risks this alliance presents to the public itself. To see this dangerous cyber-industrial complex being brought to the attention of more and more people is a source of great satisfaction for me, and I am sure it is for Jeremy Hammond, as well. It tells us that what we are undergoing is not in vain, and that is a gift beyond measure.

Again, I thank you all.

As a part of a “joint” fund raiser for Jermy Hammond and Barrett Brown , Stanley Cohen mad this rather endearing speech

It was also of some relief that news reached the outer perimeter that Barrett’s continuance has been allowed

Trial is set for April 28th 2014 with a second trial set for May 2014

Below is a message from Jeremy

I hope this evening finds you all in the best of health and highest of spirit. Thanks for coming out to show support for me and Barrett Brown.

I want to shout out to all my brothers and sisters locked down, here at New York Metropolitan Correctional Center, at Brooklyn MDC, at Rikers Island, in the Tombs, at Cook County Jail in Chicago, and to all those on hunger strikes in California prisons and Guantanamo Bay.

And to Bradley Manning, Barrett Brown, Julian Assange, the Tinley Park Five, the NATO Five, Jerry Koch, and my wonderful twin brother, Jason Hammond.

Also thanks to the folks who put this event together, who have attended my court dates, who have written letters and sent books, and who went to the noise demonstrations outside the jail here. Your acts of solidarity bring us all great encouragement, inspiration, and strength during these harsh times.

Comrades, we are up against a racist capitalist power structure that wages wars, destroys the environment and spies on our every move! They lock up millions of people in cages for “crimes” that corrupt governments and multi-national corporations also commit on an everyday basis and on a greater magnitude, yet we are the criminals.

They lock us up for guns and drugs when defense contractors and pharmaceutical companies are the top traffickers.They call us thieves when it’s Wall Street 1%ers who rob us blind, exploit our labor, evict us out of our homes, and get billion dollar bailouts.

They condemn hackers and leakers when the NSA, CIA, and FBI illegally spy on everybody, and wage cyber espionage through viruses and hacking for foreign government systems.

They put signs everywhere that say “If you see something, say something” as if their extensive surveillance camera systems aren’t enough, they also want us to become additional eyes and ears for the police against our own neighbors.

But if you point out suspicious activities of our own government, if you leak information that should be free and public anyway, then they will follow you to the ends of the Earth to put you in prison.

Even if you simply report on these leaks, they will discredit you, subpoena you for your sources, or just put you in prison on a bunch of trumped up charges like they did Barrett Brown.

They repress us, infiltrate us, entrap us, harass our families and friends, and call us criminals, terrorists, and traitors, and break their own laws to try to stop us because we work to expose the truth.

They are scared that if people know the truth, the day will come when they will have to answer for their own crimes.But can we trust whatever “independent review panel” they put together to investigate the NSA? After all the lies and egregious illegality, do you think any of them will be charged or do time? Will we ever be satisfied with any reforms they promise?

The answer is obviously no.

Justice can never be found in their courtrooms.

Yes, we need to eliminate mandatory minimum sentences, but Attorney General Eric Holder doesn’t give a damn about prison overcrowding.

The Obama administration is not interested in any such debate about “the balance of privacy and security” because they will keep spying on everyone, regardless of public opinion, until we stop them.

The time for talk is over, it’s time for collective refusal, civil disobedience, and direct action. We must support all those who risked their freedom and lives to expose and confront the power structure, and continue the struggle until we stop these wars and the prison walls come crumbling down and we can all be together again free and equal!

FBI Knew About Potential Assassination Plots Against OWS, Didn’t Warn Protesters

In Big Brother, News, NWO, Occupy Wall Street, Other Leaks, Police State, USA, USA, World Revolution on January 3, 2013 at 7:53 AM

 

01/03/2012

Only one month into the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations last year, plans were formulated to identify key figures in the movement and execute them with a coordinated assault using sniper rifles, new documents reveal.

The revelation — discussed in a heavily redacted FBI memo unearthed late last month through a Freedom of Information Act request — reveals that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was aware of plans for a violent assault on the peaceful protest movement but stayed silent on rumors of an assassination attempt only until now.

Information on the alleged plot to kill off protesters appears on page 61 of the trove of documents obtained recently by a FOIA request filed by the Partnership For Civil Justice Fund. On the page in question, marked “SECRET,” the FBI acknowledges:

An identified [redacted] of October planned to engage in sniper attacks against protesters in Houston, Texas, if deemed necessary. An identified [redacted] had received intelligence that indicated the protesters in New York and Seattle planned similar protests in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin, Texas. [Redacted] planned to gather intelligence against the leaders of the protest groups and obtain photographs then formulate a plan to kill the leadership via suppressed sniper rifles.

Throughout the rest of the material obtained by the PFCJF, the FBI declines to mention any follow-up attempts at investigating or handling the rumored assassination plot. Page 61, where the plot is discussed, was redacted heavily before handed over to the PFCJF.

As RT reported when the documents were first published just before Christmas, other material released through the FOIA request shows the FBI and other law enforcement agencies labeling Occupy activists as criminal and domestic terrorists right from the early days of their anti-capitalism and anti-corporate greed protests that began in September 2011.

“These documents show that the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are treating protests against the corporate and banking structure of America as potential criminal and terrorist activity,” PFCJF Executive Director Mara Verheyden-Hilliard says. “These documents also show these federal agencies functioning as a de facto intelligence arm of Wall Street and Corporate America.”

But while police agencies were working to expose protesters for alleged crimes against the country, the demonstrators themselves were being faced with very real death threats.

“The documents, released after long delay in the week between Christmas and New Years, show a nationwide meta-plot unfolding in city after city in an Orwellian world,” Naomi Wolf writes for The Guardian. Not all that unsurprising, though, is how the very agencies that acted to suppress the protest movement made little announcement of plans to execute the very people involved in the group.

“[T]hreats of the assassination of OWS leaders by sniper fire — by whom? Where? — now remain redacted and undisclosed to those American citizens in danger, contrary to standard FBI practice to inform the person concerned when there is a threat against a political leader,” Wolf writes.

Commenting on the trove of documents, The New York Times reports, “The records show little evidence that the members of the movement planned to commit violence.”

NYPD Arrest Occupy Activists, Claim to Find Cache of Weapons & Bomb-Making Materials

In News, Occupy Wall Street, USA, USA, World Revolution on January 1, 2013 at 1:46 AM

 

12/31/2012

RT:

New York City police claim they found bomb-making materials and a ‘Terrorist Encyclopedia’ at the Greenwich Village home of a young Harvard graduate and his 9-month pregnant girlfriend.

Morgan Gliedman, 27, and boyfriend Aaron Greene, 31, were arrested on a weapons-possession charge after police officers say they found the dangerous materials in the couple’s apartment, the New York Post reported. The officers claim they found 7 grams of HMTD, a highly explosive white powder, as well as an instructional stack of papers titled “The Terrorist Encyclopedia”.

Police claim that they also discovered a flare launcher that replicates a grenade launcher, a modified 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun, ammunition, and nine high-capacity rifle magazines, unnamed sources told the Post.

The officers obtained a search warrant to enter the apartment stemming from a case of credit card-theft, which Gliedman was allegedly wanted for.

The suspects come from privileged backgrounds that are unusual for suspected terrorists. Gliedman is the daughter of the well-respected Dr. Paul Gliedman, director of radiation oncology at the Beth Israel Hospital, Brooklyn Division, and Susyan Schops Gliedman, a realtor. In 2011, the young woman’s father was listed as one of America’s top doctors in New York Magazine.

Greene received both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from Harvard University and was an Occupy Wall Street activist.

Gliedman and Greene live together in an apartment in Greenwich Village and are expecting a baby. A neighbor who resides in the apartment at 8 West 9thStreet told the Gothamist that they are “hippie types”. The unnamed man said Gliedman is “very friendly, very nice”, whereas Greene is “kind of cold, not the type of person who encouraged politeness.”

Some have begun to question the events of the strange arrest, which were surprising considering the couple’s background. The Post reported the claims made by the New York Police Department, but did not report the defendant’s case.

“The case really does have all the makings of a tabloid reporter’s dream: a super-privileged mom-to-be, living in one of the cushiest neighborhoods in Manhattan, apparently devising bombs with her OWS boyfriend,” writes Alexander Abad-Santos for The Atlantic. “ What Gliedman and Greene were allegedly up to, of course, would be pretty terrifying no matter what neighborhood they were doing it in.”

Authorities allege that Greene has had five run-ins with the police and was previously charged with assault and weapons possession.

Now, the Harvard grad will likely become the father of a newborn while imprisoned. Greene was arraigned Sunday and is being held without bail until his Jan. 4 hearing. Gliedman’s arraignment has been delayed while she is in labor. She is currently in the hospital.

“The whole situation’s sad,” attorney Lisa Pelosi, who is representing Greene, told the Associated Press. She declined to comment about the case any further, leaving the details on the defendant’s side unknown until the case progresses.
