The London police department have issued a statement that states any “occupy” group is now being listen on the terror watch list. Despite the fact that these people are, by and large, a peaceful group of protesters, the entire group are now considered terrorists.

The document was given to protesters at their “Bank of Ideas” base on Sun Street – a former site of financial corporation UBS. City police have stepped up an effort to quell the movement since they occupied the building on 18 November, with the document stating: “It is likely that activists aspire to identify other locations to occupy, especially those they identify with capitalism.

“Intelligence suggests that urban explorers are holding a discussion at the Sun Street squat. This may lead to an increase in urban exploration activity at abandoned or high profile sites in the capital.” The Occupy movement is listed alongside threats posed by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Columbia (FARC), Al Qaeda and Belarusian terrorists.

Commenting on the document, City of London Police said: “[We] work with the community to deter and detect terrorist activity and crime in the City in a way that has been identified nationally as good practice.

“We’ve seen crime linked to protests in recent weeks, notably around groups entering office buildings, and with that in mind we continue to brief key trusted partners on activity linked to protests.”

According to the politicians, they can rewrite the rules and laws any time that they want. This is a prime example of it. They do not like the occupy movement so, instead of dealing with the situation and resolving any problems, they reclassify peaceful protesters as terrorists. By removing their powers of protest, the government is forcing them to, eventually, take some type of physical action, thus proving the government’s stance that they are terrorists.

A push back is coming. And it isn’t going to be pretty.

flattr this!
