Tent Monsters at Occupy Melbourne

Occupy Movements supporting efforts on Wall St keep growing, however none were so clever as the Aussies...
Melbourne Occupiers have a silly, rather than violent way of dealing with invading police officers.
(SALEM / MELBOURNE) - This might be one of the funniest and most rewarding videos published regarding the Occupy movement; no U.S. combat vets being shot, no students being beaten by police; this one comes from those awesome blokes down under where innovation and courage have always been necessary tenets in their society.
It isn't every day we have a chance to laugh at the antics of cops who so profoundly, fail to see the ridiculousness of their orders.
Of course there is a growing percentage of law enforcement in the U.S. who are bailing out, they are ashamed of the thugs with badges in LA, New York and Oakland, Portland, Denver and so many other places.
Nameless faceless numbers, that is what they are when police brutalize; in all of their non-individuality, hiding behind tactical gear and all manner of things to protect their bodies while they ravage the bodies of others; children, young students, old ladies, they are all the victims of American cops who are, and let's be very clear about this, choosing to be a part of the fascism, the efforts to dissuade Americans from public assembly.
It has also happened in Mexico and Canada and so many other places, however none were so clever as the Aussies, I applaud them with stinging red hands.
Special thanks to Karin Rougeau for making sure we had this...
