without comments

Milano – Alla vigilia della manifestazione di domani 15 ottobre, i Collettivi studenteschi di Milano e provincia tornano in piazza. Un corteo partito alle dieci da largo Cairoli ha attraversato il centro del capoluogo lombardo cantando slogan contro banche e governo. Prese d’assalto le vetrine di molte filiali del credito, come Intesa Sanpaolo e Unicredit. Durante la mattinata è stata tentata anche l’incursione nella sede milanese della agenzia di rating Goldma Sachs, dopo gli episodi che nelle scorse settimane avevano coinvolto Moody’s e Standard&Poors. Il corteo ha poi raggiunto piazza Cadorna dove verso mezzogiorno, all’angolo con via Paleocapa gli studenti hanno lanciato ortaggi e frutta marcia contro la polizia, impegnata a bloccare l’accesso al palazzo che ospita gli uffici della Fininvest. “La nostra fiducia non l’avrai mai, ladro mafioso”, hanno gridato gli studenti all’indirizzo del premier Berlusconi.

Which translates to something like this:

More than 700 arrested on Brooklyn Bridge

without comments

So that’s what the land of the free and home of the brave has become… According to the NY Times City Room the NYPD now has arrested hundreds of US citizen for protesting “disorderly conduct and blocking vehicular traffic”.

Updated, 3:35 a.m. Sunday | In a tense showdown above the East River, the police arrested more than 700 demonstrators from the Occupy Wall Street protests who took to the roadway as they tried to cross the Brooklyn Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

 

I’m sure that will calm the protesters down and not incite even more protest against the top 1% and organizations who protect them. After all, it took 50,000 people on Tahrir Square to begin the Eqyptian revolution while Occupy Wall Street is only up to about 2000 on their third weekend – at the current rate of growth it will take at least… a month or two before the protests turn into riots.
