    This footage is proof that Scott Olsen was shot in the face by police without provocation during the Occupy Oakland march on Tuesday October 25. The moment leading up to the shooting, Olsen was standing completely still. He was then hit in the head with a tear gas canister, which is potentially fatal. Also, no rocks or bottles were thrown before Olsen was shot, contrary to Police statements. at 1:19, you can see Scott Olsen falling over after the explosion Two angles of footage confirm this.

              "In 1969, a group of black and Puerto Rican students occupied City College demanding the integration of CUNY, which at the time had an overwhelmingly white student body. The occupation spread to other CUNY campuses, forcing the Board of Trustees to implement a ground-breaking new admissions policy." Such occupations also occurred in the 1980s and 2000s. It's that time again. As graduate Film students at Hunter College in New York, we're very excited to see how the spreading Occupy Wall Street movement is giving new momentum to the militant protest culture of Cuny (City University, NYC). We filmed the second General Assembly at Hunter College, and the first "Occupy Cuny" teach-in at Washington Square Park on October 21st, 2011. During the last weeks, we learned how quickly small protest gatherings can turn into new social movements. This is a document about the struggle of students and adjunct faculty at Cuny. This local struggle is part of an international student movement against neoliberal dictatorship. This is only the beginning. The time for action is now.

                      http://sparrowmedia.net There is no question that the relationship law enforcement bodies have developed with activist communities is a pervasive and chilling one. US history has shown time and time again that those who have chosen to speak truth to power often are faced with ridicule, coercion, intimidation, and out-right violence. The Occupy Wall Street movement is only different when you consider the speed in which it has materialized. The rapid growth of the OWS movement has not given some agencies time to adapt and therefore some of the investigative witch hunts associated with the anti-war, animal rights and environmental movements may not rear their ugly heads in this chapter but what we are seeing play out in the streets speaks to a new level of desperation. Grotesque abuse at the hands of rank-and-file NYPD beat cops is causing many to question whether a multi-million dollar support package J.P. Morgan gave to the NYPD means the protests are getting "special" treatment. Private interests have not only given money to law enforcement, they have also shared intelligence that would have required warrants to obtain, warrants the NYPD and FBI could not get because the movement was not guilty of criminal activity. Gawker has reported that the FBI has been spoon-fed information by Thomas Ryan, a conservative computer expert who supposedly hacked activist forums, sifted through private emails, and issued reports back to both Wall Street firms and the FBI. Ryan also brags to have "infiltrated the movement in hopes to discredit it." Similarly, there has been a half dozen or more reports of ground-level infiltration of the group by plain-clothes officers (some more noticeable then others) which is to be expected with any event of this size, but one of these plain clothes offices has become a pseudo-celebrity as of late. Detective Rick Lee, Community Relations Detective for Manhattan's 1st Precinct (or "Hipster Cop" as the world has come to know him) is now a larger then life character because of his unconventional dress and cocky attitude. While organizing at Liberty Plaza members of the Sparrow Media team were asked by a news agency if we had additional information about Lee, so we compiled some footage and info. In the big picture of the struggle against corporate greed Lee is nothing more then a pawn, but it is important to note law enforcements attempt to coerce and destabilize our movements. Even though it is hysterical to read comedian Jamie Killstein come to his defense saying "Guys! Stop making fun of #hipstercop! He's trying to find himself." or to read the myriad tumblr references to his style, it is important to remember Hipster Cop is part of the process of intimidation, ridicule, an violence being levied against us. Please practice good security culture and keep in mind that as things continue to ramp up nation-wide so will the response from law enforcement. Try to also not let your security protocols cripple your groups with paranoia, instead simply practice good security and fairness with the people around you. Lastly remember if they are not paying attention, then you are doing something wrong. Right now you guys are winning, keep it up!
