Social/Political movements have always felt the the force that the police state uses upon people who exercise their rights to hold the government accountable. On September 17, 2012 the Occupy movement began in Liberty Park, New York, NY joining the ranks of movements across the country that have fought and continue to fight to make this country as free and equal as it claims to be.
As we move into the Summer of 2012 and the discontent of the people has begun to manifest as a growing immigrant/migrant movement, emerging student movement, and continuing occupy movement; another movement is growing on a local, state, and federal level. This movement aims to repress"people power" by creating legal avenues to criminalize and repress political protest ie) domestic terrorism, suspicious activity
