For over 4 months, students and their allies, took over the streets of Montreal every day, to protest a tuition hike imposed by the liberal party in Quebec.
On September 21st, the newly elected Premier of Quebec scrapped the tuition hike and repealed a controversial law, that effectively banned public demonstrations.
While this is being touted as a victory by many in the student movement, one element that made this success possible is already being overshadowed. How the the movement's militant street politics transformed the student strike from a single issue campaign to an uncompromising social insurrection.
From Sept 15-17th Occupy Wall Street gathered in lower Manhattan to commemorate one full year of actions. The three days where broken up into a day of education, a day of celebration, and a day of liberation.
Occupy Wall Street participants used the anniversary to show that they are still active, organizing actions everyday all across the city. This is a short documentary which highlights some of Occupy Wall Street's recent accomplishments, its broader influence, and where it is headed.
One year ago a small group of predominantly Anarchists sparked a horizontally organized movement to level the playing field in the game of Corporations -vs- The People of the United States. Today we celebrated our success and contemplated our future. We licked old wounds and created new ones. We turned a critical eye to the process that has guided us and acknowledged it's short comings so that our second year of existence will be one of effectiveness even if it means dropping the verb. To Occupy.

On September 5, 2012, hundreds of protesters marched from Marshall Park through Charlotte, NC to block intersections near the Time Warner Center, where delegates are meeting for the Democratic National Convention
A few hundred people march to expose the Democratic hypocrisy regarding their corporate sponsors.
On August 30th, 2012, seven members of Earth First! locked down at the Teco Big Bend Station, Florida's dirtiest coal power plant. Teco gives copious amounts of money to Republicans and the RNC allowing Teco to avoid cleaning up its act. One member locked down to a truck with a u-lock. The other six hooked themselves into sleeping dragons and blocked the main road. Six hours later, all seven were released with no charges, tickets, or arrests. Needless to say, business as usual came to a halt for those six hours as hundreds of law enforcement officers descended on the dirty coal burning plant to remove the Earth First!ers. Activists, community members, and occupiers arrived at the plant via buses to give support.
In 1972 , a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum-security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem...if no one else can help...and if you can find them...maybe you can hire...The A- Team.
On Sunday, September 2, 2012, hundreds of demonstrators marched through Charlotte, NC to protest before the opening of the 2012 Democratic National Convention.

Not since the days of Gasparilla and Black Caesar has old Missy Tampa Bay had her bloomers in such a bunch Alarmingly, bunched up bloomers can only exacerbate an already sticky situation down there.
On behalf of my constituencies. I would like to turn uip the Southern charm and address this open letter to you, the charming Tampa Police Department.
Also I should like to say hello to the supporting departments, and agencies from across the country, who will be working with us , together, during this hot and sweaty National Security Rodeo.
I am here today, to address an issue that is critical to the health and safety of all, during the warm, damp days of the southern fried RNC .There is an underreported, often ignored, and rarely discussed health condition that could easily devolve into a rash of serious injuries... or worse. Sadly, it may be the very people who are tasked with providing safety and order, that will be most susceptible to this scourge. Ironically , it could be the very same people that they are being tasked to serve and protect that may be it's ultimate victims.
The place where any two parts of the human body rub up against each other can cause painful irritation. The same is true of the body politic.
Skin is the human body's largest organ, just as the thin blue line is fast becoming the largest organ in the body of society. One place in the body politic where constant friction can occur is where the street meets the feet. This is where first amendment practitioners , experiencing societal discomfort, attempt to petition their rulers for a redress of grievance. This is where they will rub up against the epidermal layer of the security state.. Freedom of movement, assembly and speech can help alleviate some of the powerful irritation caused when the citizenry rub against their rulers.
Any moment now, a parade of patriotic and otherwise Americans will descend upon Tampa en masse, to practice the First Amendment of America.
By the busload Patriotic citizens burning for justice, itching for freedom, and chafing against the yolk of oppressiveness will arrive..
In South African there is a proverb that states, " If your buttocks burn, you know you have done wrong." However, During this National Security Event Sale all sides will have plenty of skin in the game.
“The Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011.” aka H.R. 347 (signed bt Obama, not Putin) makes it a federal crime to disturb events of national significance—such as a political convention, punishable by ten years. This law has nothing to do with hedge trimming and everything to do with criminalizing non-violent political speech.. It is a hysterical overaction to free speech activities. It makes what is at most disorderly conduct a federal case It is the type of vindictive prosecutory zeal that has put activists like Tim Christopher and Pussy Riot in prison.
