Repeat of scenes from 2009 G20 meeting in Pittsburgh as martial law drills continue

In a repeat of scenes witnessed at last year’s G20 meeting in Pittsburgh, protesters in Toronto are being abducted off the streets and bundled into unmarked vehicles which are driven away at high speeds.

Several videos show police tackling protesters to the ground, cuffing them and then handing them over to unidentified casually dressed individuals who shove the demonstrators into unmarked black vans.

Police then randomly grab further protesters as more of the unmarked vehicles arrive on the scene.

These videos, and many others uploaded to Youtube, clearly show police charging and attacking peaceful protesters and journalists, while in some cases black bloc anarchists have been allowed to rampage through the city unchallenged.

Prior to the G20 and G8 gatherings, Toronto police were given unprecedented powers to to arrest anyone near the security zone who refuses to identify themselves or agree to a police search.

It is not clear where the snatched protesters were taken, however it is assumed they were detained in the massive movie studio police have been using as a temporary jail. The building is roughly five kilometres from the Toronto Convention Centre, outside the two security zones.

British activist Charlie Veitch, who was arrested last week in Toronto for refusing to show ID, described the conditions in the makeshift prison on last Friday’s Alex Jones show, noting that the building the size of two football pitches was crammed with cages and covered with cctv cameras.

Veitch, along with Canadian activist Dan Dicks returned to the show yesterday to detail suspicious undercover police activity at the meeting.

After the Drudge Report linked to the shocking video, hoards of mindless Neo-Cons flooded comment boards claiming the event was “fake” or “staged,” citing all manner of ludicrous and unfounded reasons in a desperate effort to deny the fact that America is now a military police state.

G20 security officials subsequently took responsibility for the video and admitted it was real, stating that the protester was arrested for “vandalizing a store.”

The message is clear, exercising free speech in Canada and the U.S. is now officially a criminal offense and people who dare exercise it are attacked and abducted in broad daylight.

These scenes are a precursor to what our future cities will permanently look like as the world we live in worsens at the hands of the international banksters that have hijacked our governments and our political systems. Only by standing up now and refusing to accept scenes like this as normal do we stand any chance of preventing that scenario from unfolding.

 

 

 

Hypocrite Toronto Police Demands Resignation of Labour President over Agent-Provocateur Comments

On June 17, the Star reported that the Toronto police union is calling for Ontario Federation of Labour president Sid Ryan to resign after he expressed concern over the possibility of the police using agent-provocateurs at the G20-meeting.

Bush Tenet

In 2007 in Ottawa cops posed as anarchists.

Ryan, who planned to join the protests, stated that the city is rapidly turning into a police-state, stating that:

“(…) We got these armed forces in our city, the likes of which I’ve never seen.”

“I am very concerned”, Ryan continued, “that there could be political pressure from the federal Conservative government to use police to provoke a situation that will lead to arrests — purely to justify the enormous security costs of the G20 summit. And frankly, that should be a concern for the police union as well.”

The president of the Toronto Police Association, Mike McCormack, responded in a defensive reflex, stating that “It’s a totally irresponsible, inflammatory and idiotic thing to say for someone in his position. Nothing could be further from the truth.”

Not quite. There have been numerous well-documented cases where provocateurs were caught trying to incite violence at key globalist gatherings. In other words: miniature false flag operations conducted by the (military) police with the specific aim of radicalizing the protests and equating anyone resisting these key globalist meetings with trigger-happy idiots.

The truth notwithstanding, the Minister of State of Foreign Affairs Peter Kent joined McCormack in his hypocritical reaction, demanding Ryan’s resignation. Watch fragment:

The history of provocateurs igniting false flag-riots is extensive. Time and time again intelligence agencies have been caught deploying agent-provocateurs in the hope of escalating the protests. Lucky for us, many of the attempts by these intelligence agencies have failed miserably. In 2007 agent-provocateurs were identified by real protestors. The silly sods had forgotten to take off their boots – which happened to be identical to those worn by the present riot police. Watch fragment:

During the G20 global governance rally in Pittsburgh in September of 2009, provocateurs were spotted on several occasions mixing with the real protestors and attempting to incite violence. Watch:

The phenomenon agent-provocateur is also haunting the Tea Party meetings, where they are almost certainly getting ready to radicalize the meetings. We know using such plants is the favorite device of the new world order and is a clear signal that they will stop at nothing to achieve their objectives. Despite the hypocritical denial of McCormack and Kent, even the globalists themselves do not deny the use of agent-provocateurs at globalization summits.

In a 2003 UNESCO “discussion paper” heralding the emergence of world government entitledNot “globaphiles” or “globaphobes” but “globacritics” the author acknowledges that anti-globalization protest groups “have been infiltrated by certain central government “political intelligence” elements” seeking to radicalize the protests.

The document was composed by Jaime Preciado Coronado: a professor and researcher at the Department of Iberian and Latin American Studies at the University of Guadalajara, Mexico. In the paper, two different forms of opposition are being distinguished. The first, “total repudiation and resistance to globalization” (“globaphobes”), the second: “grassroots alternatives to counter the deleterious effects of such globalization” (“globacritics”).

After sketching the classical false distinction between neo-liberal globalization and social globalization, Coronado turns to the issue of anti-globalization protests:

“The use of violence is a further divisive issue, since some of those opposing globalization, at least under its current terms, support peaceful forms of protest that nevertheless serve to apply pressure for winning negotiations, while others favor openly confronting the forces of repression. The latter seek to “teach lessons” through confrontation and to amass opposition in order to radicalize the struggle.”

We cannot conceal the fact that they have been infiltrated by certain central government “political intelligence” elements”, Coronado continues, “although this does not justify the repressive authoritarian measures they (these intelligence elements) have used in a bid to thwart the respective protests.”

Here Coronado acknowledges that government operatives intentionally radicalize anti-globalization protests by either provoking radical elements such as anarchists to use violence or plant agent-provocateurs to do the same. This further underlines the fact that governments within the new world order make regular use of agent-provocateurs to radicalize the opposition.

 

 

 

Peaceful Protesters Attacked, Arrested While Cop-Car Arsonists Left Alone

Peaceful Protesters Attacked, Arrested While Cop Car Arsonists Left Alone 280610top

An eyebrow-raising photograph of one of the anarchists who set fire to a Toronto police car during anti-G20 protests this past weekend shows him wearing Nike clothing, a potential indication that provocateurs dressed up as black-bloc “anarchists” were again employed by authorities to cause mayhem in order to justify a brutal police crackdown and crush free speech, as peaceful protesters were attacked and arrested while the anarchists who torched the cars were left alone.

The picture shows the two culprits who set fire to the police car congratulating each other and looking remarkably relaxed about potentially being caught by police considering what they had just done. One of the men is wearing Nike pants – the distinctive logo of the company can be seen above his left pocket.

Why would a hardcore anarchists so dedicated to his cause that he is willing to torch a police car be wearing clothing made by a company that anarchists universally abhor, and one that has routinely been targeted by anarchists for well over a decade?

The authorities certainly wasted no time in responding to the mayhem the anarchists helpfully generated for them with brute force. After anarchists torched four police cars, reporters and other peaceful protesters were targeted with rubber bullets, with another Guardian journalist being repeatedly punched and elbowed by cops.

“A newspaper photographer was shot with a plastic bullet in the backside, while another had an officer point a gun in his face despite identifying himself as a member of the media,” reported the Canadian Press news agency.

Journalist Steve Paikin of public broadcaster TV Ontario described the brutal beating of the Guardian reporter.

“As I was escorted away from the demonstration, I saw two officers hold a journalist. The journalist identified himself as working for ‘the Guardian.’ He talked too much and pissed the police off. Two officers held him a third punched him in the stomach. Totally unnecessary. The man collapsed. Then the third officer drove his elbow into the man’s back. No cameras recorded the assault. And it was an assault.”

Paikin noted how middle class, peaceful demonstrators were being attacked and arrested by police, while the anarchists who provided them with the pretext to do so were nowhere to be seen.

“The police just started arresting people. I stress, this was a peaceful, middle class, diverse crowd. No anarchists. Literally more than 100 officers with guns pointing at the crowd. Rubber bullets and smoke bombs ready to be fired. Rubber bullets fired.”

“I have lived in Toronto for 32 years. Have never seen a day like this. Shame on the vandals and shame on those that ordered peaceful protesters attacked and arrested,” added Paikin

Could the two men in the picture be cops dressed up as anarchists? It wouldn’t be the first time that cops had posed as protesters and deliberately staged violence in an effort to justify a heavy-handed police response.

We have documented numerous different occasions where the black bloc anarchists were completely infiltrated by the authorities to provide a pretext for a police state crackdown.

A recent example occurred at last year’s Pittsburgh G20 summit, where footage showed three burly older men who look completely out of place with black bandanas over their face walking alongside young protesters during a march against police brutality in a You Tube clip entitled “G20 Epic Undercover Police Fail”.

The clip would be hilarious if it was not so disturbing. Protesters walking behind what are obviously badly disguised cops claim they broke cameras and acted aggressively towards genuine protesters, as well as carrying gas canisters. During a peaceful demonstration on the same night, riot cops savagely attacked protesters with batons and rubber bullets while also assaulting and arresting students who weren’t even part of the demonstration.

Following the SPP protests in Canada three years ago, Quebec provincial authorities were forced to admit that three rock-wielding black mask-wearing “anarchists” were in fact police infiltrators used to gather information on protesters.

Video shows two of the provocateurs pick up rocks and try to incite violence before they are outed as cops by legitimate demonstrators. The two thugs then tried to slip behind police lines before their fellow officers were forced to stage their arrest. Again, the fact that they were cops in disguise was later admitted by authorities. Interestingly as it applies to the Toronto “anarchists,” one of the primary reasons the men initially aroused suspicion was the fact that they were wearing the same distinctive boots as the uniformed riot police.

Watch the video.

Alex Jones’ film Police State 2: The Takeover exposed how the black bloc anarchists were completely infiltrated and provocateured by the authorities during the violent 1999 WTO protests in Seattle.

The authorities declared a state of emergency, imposed curfews and resorted to nothing short of police state tactics in response to a small minority of hostile black bloc hooligans. Police allowed the black bloc to run riot in downtown Seattle while they concentrated on preventing the movement of peaceful protestors. The film presents clear evidence that the black bloc anarchist group was actually controlled by the state and used to demonize peaceful protesters. Watch the video below.

At the WTO protests in Genoa 2001 a protestor was killed after being shot in the head and run over twice by a police vehicle. The Italian Carabiniere also later beat on peaceful protestors as they slept, and even tortured some, at the Diaz School. It later emerged that the police fabricated evidence against the protesters, claiming they were anarchist rioters, to justify their actions. Some Carabiniere officials have since come forward to say they knew of infiltration of the so called black bloc anarchists, and that fellow officers acted as agent provocateurs.

At the Free Trade Area of Americas protests in Miami in late November 2003, more provocateuring was evident. The United Steelworkers of America calling for a congressional investigation, stated that the police intentionally caused violence and arrested and charged hundreds of peaceful protestors. The USWA suggested that billions of dollars supposedly slated for Iraq reconstruction funds are actually being used to subsidize “homeland repression” in America.

The leadership of the black bloc has been completely usurped by the authorities and anyone who still professes to be a member of the group is either supremely naive or completely stupid. To dress up like terrorists, all in black with ski masks and bandanas (like the police) immediately sends out a negative message to the watching public and demonizes legitimate protesters, as does pointlessly setting fire to a police car. Engaging in such acts only bolsters the rational and reasonable facade of groups like G20 that the anarchists supposedly want to discredit.

Such incidents provide the perfect justification for the authorities to shut down the free speech of legitimate demonstrators who actually have something of substance to say and a means of communicating their message, people like Charlie Veitch, who was arrested, tortured and caged by Toronto police thugs after he used a bullhorn.

 

Now some of the lies
