Interesting factoid on Occupy
HuffPo. Note the timing:
According to the new documents, the FBI began meeting with representatives of the New York Stock Exchange and other businesses as early as August 2011, a month before the Zuccotti Park protests.
Well now. That's interesting, isn't it?
I'm not clear on the timeline here -- another project... -- so I'm not sure what Adbusters (Canada) and the indignados and other parties in the US discussed publicly or online. And I suppose there is a ZOMG!!! Informers!!!!! Agent provocateurs!!!!!! story line to be had here. However, my takeaway is optimstic: The Stasi had a humongous heads-up, and all the money and all the resources that any organ of state security could possibly have, and yet a rag tag group of unarmed civilians -- true, only for a time -- out-strategized, out-organized, and out-maneuvered them. That really is a cause for celebration, I would think. NOTE Adding, since they know everything anyhow, the classic structure of the revolutionary cell may be obsolete. Just a thought.
