Media Roots: OWS, Police State Repression, Unification, Censorship, Citizen Journalism

Via Media Roots:

Abby & Robbie Martin cover Occupy Wall Street: the police state repression against the First Amendment, the Democratic Party’s attempt to co-opt the movement, the Obama administration’s hypocrisy to praise revolution abroad and censor it at home, the fact that the Tea Party and OWS are fighting two heads of the same beast, the “Black Bloc” provocateurs and their attempt to discredit peaceful movements; media censorship and the fact that news anchors are repeaters, not reporters; the two-tiered justice system catered toward the elite; citizen journalism and its role in allowing participation and unification in the global revolution.

    i appreciate the mention of Malachi Ritscher’s self-immolation against the iraq war in 2006.  sadly, his death went largely unnoticed… but his suicide note is worth reading. “We as a nation face the abyss of our own design.” he was right.
