Protests in Chicago and Frankfurt against the Old World Order - police repression


German police arrested 400 Blockupy members who protested against Capitalism, as you can see in this video:

Are you hungry? Eat a banker.

Among the discourses, the austerity policies were denounced as destructive and it was demanded that the European Central Bank should stop lending to private banks and begin lending directly to the states. 

More info at Blockupy Frankfurt[de] and Sare Antifaxista[es] (incl. photo-gallery).


The NATO summit was to begin right as I write this and so was the main demonstration. So this is just the aperitif from yesterday and the days before. 

Occupy Chicago reports of  several arrested and even charged as "terrorists" without apparently any evidence (but the USA is in permanent emergency since 2001, so police can do whatever or almost and it's legal).

The home was searched without warrant, the arrested have been retained without warrant or any other legal guarantees, literally disappeared for 24 hrs, not allowed attorneys and probably kept shackled by hands and feet:

Update: several live stream channels available at Occupy Chicago (3 as I write this were online).
