Protester allegedly arrested for filming ‘Occupy Wall Street’

Published

on

Christina Gonzales, an “Occupy Wall Street” protester, told Democracy Now that she was arrested by the New York Police Department for filming the demonstration, which has now lasted 10 straight days.

The protesters have been camped out in New York’s old Liberty Plaza, one block from the Federal Reserve, since Saturday.

Gonzales was allegedly handcuffed and hauled off to a police van after she was ordered to stop filming and refused.

“We sat inside one of these police vans, 16 of us, for two-and-a-half hours with the doors closed,” she told a reporter from Democracy Now. “We couldn’t breath in there, and there was a man in there who needed medical attention. He had a big, huge laceration on his eyebrow.”

“There’s a lot of causes out here, but I think the main thing that we’re looking for is that we’re human beings, and human beings should come before money,” she added.

We know that foreign powers continue to try to meddle in our elections. Trump's FBI director and Director of National Intelligence have made this crystal clear."

Having already determined that two of the top contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination — Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders — are unacceptable and must be stopped at all costs, Wall Street financiers have reportedly begun to narrow down their list of 2020 favorites as candidates' fundraising efforts reach a "fevered peak" ahead of the June filing deadline.

Published

on

A far-right university student who called Prince Harry a race traitor and created an image of him with a pistol to his head was on Tuesday jailed in Britain for more than four years.

Michal Szewczuk, 19, posted the image, which also featured a blood-splattered swastika, on microblogging platform Gab in August last year, months after the prince married mixed-race actress Meghan Markle.

The post included the phrase "See Ya Later Race Traitor".

Szewczuk, who was jailed for four years and three months, pleaded guilty to two counts of encouraging terrorism and five counts of possession of terrorist material, including the White Resistance Manual and an Al-Qaeda manual.
