#OccupyOakland has come under attack from city police, who now appear to be calling in reinforcements from Palo Alto. A protester who did two tours in Iraq is in critical condition with fractured skull and brain injury after a cop shot him in the head with a “non-lethal” weapon. A crowd of protesters were deliberately hit with a flashbang while rendering first aid to an injured protester. Police claimed in a recent press release that “no injuries” have been reported so far.
These are among the most disturbing and criminal acts to be have been proven on the part of U.S. police since NYPD officers were outed as having routinely planted drugs on suspects earlier this month. The time has come to retaliate against Oakland police via all non-violent means, beginning with doxing of individual officers and particularly higher-ups involved in the department’s conduct of late.
Those willing to assist in doxing should send any found materials to firstname.lastname@example.org. To work with Anonymous, use an IRC client to join irc.anonops.li #anonops.
I’m offering a $1,000 reward, no questions asked, for the name of the officer who threw a flashbang at the injured Iraqi vet.

It’s not just San Francisco and Oakland law enforcement that are interested in the nationwide spin-off protests of Occupy Wall Street. Since demonstrators fed up with financial mismanagement, perceived corporate greed and socioeconomic inequality set up camp in Lower Manhattan on September 17, similar encampments have been set up with varying degrees of success in over eleven hundred cities.
Reports unearthed by the open source website Public Intelligence reveal that the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are carefully studying the role of the loose-knit hacktivist group Anonymous in the nationwide Occupation movement.
In a September 14th report, the FBI cites the hacktivists’ involvement in the series of protests against BART police shootings in August, the FBI believed Anonymous’ participation in Occupy Wall Street could bring additional media attention to the movement and increase the potential for denial of service attacks on financial institutions’ websites.
NEW YORK |
(Reuters) – The New York Stock Exchange website was inaccessible for 30 minutes on Monday, according to an Internet monitoring company, but the exchange said there was no interruption of service.
On Monday, the day hackers said they would attack the site, the NYSE website was unavailable from 5:30 p.m. EDT to 6 p.m. EDT and there was also an incident at 3:30 p.m. that lasted for about one minute, according to California-based Keynote Systems, which monitors websites.
A spokesperson for the NYSE said there was no interruption to web traffic and no sign of a hacker attack.
“We don’t know if it was a hacker attack,” Keynote spokesman Daniel Berkowitz said in an email. “We only see what end users see and so (we are) not sure if the cause was a DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack.”
A person familiar with the matter said on Tuesday that internal monitoring systems indicated the NYSE website had not experienced service issues and that the NYSE servers were not compromised.
The source said there may have been some slowness during the day originating from the external Internet service provider.

Anonymous is joining the Occupy Wall Street protestors — virtually — by threatening to “erase” the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on October 10. Anonymous, a loosely-associated group of “activists” (Internet hacker activists) has certainly created a strong record of carrying out their threats, usually involving crippling distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks including taking down the Internet sites of God Hates Fags, Koch Brothers-funded conservative group Americans for Prosperity (AFP), and hacking Bank of America Internet operations, reportedly resulting in accessing evidence of “corruption and fraud.”

It’s not clear if this would just be an attack on the NYSE website or on the electronic communications of the exchange itself. Obviously, an attack on the latter would be a lot more serious since it could interfere with financial market operations.
A spokesman for the NYSE could not be reached immediately.
Meanwhile, The Atlantic Wire posits that this is “probably a fake.” Don’t be so sure.
The video threat (below) states,
Greetings, Institutions of the Media.
We are Anonymous.
The events transpiring within Wall Street have caught our eye.
It seems that the government and Federal agencies enjoy enforcing the law a little bit too much. They instate unjust laws as mindless automatons, blindly following orders with soulless precision.
We witness the Government enforcing the laws that punish the 99% while allowing the 1% to escape justice, unharmed, for their crimes against the people.
We have observed this same Government failing to enforce even the minimal legal restraints of Wall Street’s abuses. This Government who has willingly ignored the greed at Wall Street has even bailed out the perpetrators that have caused our crisis.
We will not stand by and watch the system take over our way of life.
We the people shall stand against the government’s inaction.
We the people will not be witnesses to your corruption and ill gotten profits.
We will not labor for your leisure.
We will not assist you in any way.
This is why we choose to declare our war against the New York Stock Exchange. We can no longer stay silent as the population is being exploited and forced to make sacrifices in the name of profit.
We will show the world that we are true to our word. On October 10th, NYSE shall be erased from the Internet. On October 10th, expect a day that will never, ever, be forgotten.
Vox Populi, Vox Anon.
The Voice of The People is The Voice of Anonymous.
We are Legion. We are the 99%.
We do not forgive. We do not forget.
Wall Street: Expect us.
It’s a leaderless movement, decentralized and purposefully unfocused. Decisions are made by a consensus process that steers carefully clear of patriarchy or singular authority. The Occupy Wall Street movement self-consciously avoids thrusting individual members into the media’s eye.
The minutes from its organizing meetings use first names only, as do some of the organizers in their media interviews, such as this Beta Beat feature on the occupation’s web team. But in spite of themselves, a few individuals have been picked up by the press, in general, as representing the movement’s spirit and its message, if not its actual organizational backbone. On Tuesday, the New York Observer pointed out that the coverage of the occupation had morphed into a full-fledged media circus, so we expect to see more stars of the movement emerge as the gaggle of cameras starts to settle on its favorites.
