'Occupy Boston' takes Israeli consulateDebbie Menon for Salem-News.com
You did not see that on CNN or MSBNC or FOX ?
(MELBOURNE, Aust.) - Bless Boston.
It is on CLG News and PRESS TV is reporting it.
It must not be true!
Nostradamus predicted the rise of a great movement starting somewhere in the mediteraneum that would shake the pillars of power in Europe.
“The American public have undoubtedly been inspired by the Awakening in the Middle East and North Africa, where “the 99 percenters” rose and stood up to the despotic dictators directing their destiny.”
Is this it ? “The Great Awakening”
99% Americans have awakened from their slumber.
Occupy Wall Street started in New York but within weeks spread to Washington, D.C.; Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose, California; Chicago, Illinois; Madison, Wisconsin; Seattle, Washington; Portland, Oregon; Santa Fe, New Mexico; Iowa City, Iowa and many other cities across the United States and is gaining momentum with labor unions and students joining the protests.
‘Occupy Boston’ protesters in the US have stormed the Israeli consulate in the city and held a brief sit-in in the building’s lobby, Press TV reports.
On Friday, activists gathered calling for the liberation of Palestine, angry at Israel for intercepting an aid flotilla on its way to the besieged Gaza Strip.
Protesters chanted slogans such as, “not another nickel, not another dime! No more money for Israel’s crimes” and “Vive viva Palestina,” demanding the departure of Israeli consulate officials from the US.
The protest is part of a global movement against social and economic inequalities, and corporate greed.
Participants made clear that they are not anti-Semites, but anti-Zionists, critical of the Israeli government’s current policies.
The “Occupy” movement emerged after a group of Americans on September 17 gathered in New York’s financial district to protest against the unjust distribution of wealth in the US and the excessive influence of big corporations on the American politics.
Despite mass arrests and widespread police crackdown, the movement has now spread to major US cities, as well as to other countries, including Australia, Britain, Germany, Italy, Spain, Ireland, and Portugal.

Freedom Waves to Gaza
Of the 27 human rights defenders captured during Israel’s illegal takeover of the Freedom Waves to Gaza vessels on Friday, 4 November, 20 political activists remain in Givon prison and the whereabouts of one is unknown.
Israeli officials have been claiming that all 27 people aboard the MV Tahrir and MV Saoirse have been released or are awaiting deportation. This is not true. Freedom Waves can confirm that six people have been released or deported. These are Majd Kayyal (Palestinian from Haifa), Lina Attalah (Journalist from Egypt), Casey James (Journalist from the US), Aimane Zoubir (Journalist from Morocco), Captain George Klontzas (Greece) and Captain Zacharias Stylianakis.
The whereabouts of British journalist, Hassan Ghani of PressTV is unknown.
On Saturday prison authorities told lawyers that Hassan was not at the prison, yet we know that he has not yet been released. Freedom Waves organizers demand that the Israeli authorities reveal where Hassan Ghani is being held and that he be allowed access to a lawyer.
The Israeli authorities have tried to pressure the human rights defenders that remain in Israeli prison to sign a voluntary deportation agreement (waiver of right to see a judge) in order to be immediately deported. The activists refuse to sign, not because they want to come before an Israeli judge, but rather because the wavier states that they came to Israel voluntarily and entered the country illegally, which are patently untrue in light of the fact that Israeli naval ships violently seized the Tahrir and Saoirse, and forcibly transported them and all on board to Ashdod. Israeli authorities have ignored requests by the group’s lawyer to deport the activists immediately without having to sign this form that contains falsities meant to absolve Israel of responsibility for illegal abduction of foreign nationals in international waters.
