(en) Us, Washington, Occupy and Anarchist evening march ends in confrontation with police

Date Tue, 03 Jul 2012 08:26:43 +0300

This is an approximately 8 minute video http://www.liveleak.com/ll_embed?f=44963d6c1843 of the June 29th march past ALEC, BP, and Monsanto that led to a confrontation with police near Freedom Plaza. The march departed just before sunset instead of at the originally scheduled 5:30PM due to the day's 104 degree head. Things really heated up after dark, as first one cop in a car started becoming a bit agressive with his positioning, then the assault (posted as a short clip of just the assault as well) took place. After the assault, the cops actually ran away from Occupy DC and the Anarchist Alliance-DC Network, then decided to stop a block away. That led to a second but mostly verbal confrontation, and to the identification of an undercover cop's new disguise.

When the march was at Monsanto, Monsanto was excoriated for trying to "donate" 250 tons of patented GMO seeds to Haitian farmers after the earthquake. This would have forced the farmers into Monsanto's "seed leasing" royalty system, so Haitian farmers burned the entire shipment!
