Occupy Wall Street: Police Move Against Oakland Protestors

OAKLAND, Calif. (October 25, 2011) — Police in riot gear cleared anti-Wall Street protesters on Tuesday morning from the plaza in front of Oakland's City Hall where they have been camped out for about two weeks, prompting city leaders to advise downtown businesses to delay opening and city employees to come in late.
Television news footage showed numerous people in plastic handcuffs being led away from the site by police around 5 a.m. The protesters did not appear to be resisting, although an officer did fire a non-lethal projectile from a shotgun at a protester who lobbed a bottle.
One of those arrested, Aiyahnna Johnson, 30, of Oakland, had been living at the camp with her 2-year-old daughter. 
The police action began around 4:40 a.m. when an officer on a loud speaker told the protesters they were illegally blocking the plaza and were subject to arrest. Several hundred people appeared ready to defend the camp about an hour before police moved in, placing Dumpsters, boards, pallets and even metal police-style barricades around the plaza.
Anthony Owens, 40, of Oakland, said some people in the camp left as word spread about possible police action. A core group of about 150 people locked arms and shouted as officers moved in from four corners, Owens said.
Witnesses reported seeing smoke rising from the area. The plaza was "contained" around 5:30 a.m., according to city officials, although tents and trash remained strewn there. It was not immediately clear how many people were arrested.


OCCUPY WALL STREET! Boycott the bailed out banks! Let your elected officials know your displeasure, and send them a message from the ballot box!

Occupy Wall Street: Tax Dollars Used to Fund Collection Agency Abuse!

This is deplorable.

The US government hired disreputable collection agencies to collect debts. It took a great deal of citizen pressure to put a stop to it!

Tell Congress-no more private debt collection!

Occupy Wall Street: Experian Sells YOUR Data to Criminals

Sad, but true.

Experian has a longstanding relationship with Ryon Gambill, operator of the Marauder Corporation.

Gambill has been convicted of phone harassment. Gambill also has at least one outstanding arrest warrant, also for phone harassment.

How does this make you feel-criminals could be using YOUR data to steal your identity.

Do you trust Experian? Hopefully not!

The thing is, Experian makes most of its money from businesses who subscribe to its data.

What to do?

Boycott these businesses. Educate them on Experian's criminal business practices.

Finally, if you run a business and use Experian-think again!

OCCUPY WALL STREET: End Experian's criminal behavior!

Occupy Wall Street: BofA Squandered Bailout Dollars On Abusive Collectors

In a classic example of "gotcha" journalism, Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan was presented with evidence of collection agency abuse funded with bailout dollars.

An angry Moynihan promptly fired the collection agency, but the Bank of America still ranks high on the list of institutions working against the interests of the average American.

Bank of America. Boycott them as part of the occupation of Wall Street!
