MUST SEE VIDEO: I am reposting this short (8 min) for the third time because it beautifully contrasts the formal U.S. response to protecting freedom of speech and right to assembly abroad, while remaining silent on the police brutality against students here in the United States.
It is noteworthy that the violence shown in this video – images that were shocking when they first came out 6 weeks ago – have since been eclipsed by the images of escalating violence by U.S. police against the protesters in the past few weeks: the fractured skull of Iraq War vet Scott Olsen, the pepper-spraying of 84 year old Dorli Rainey and the UC Davis students, and the NYPD’s running over protesters with motorcycles and beating them with batons.
This is what a police state looks like.
President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton, where are you?
