Released FBI documents reveal plans to assassinate OWS activists
Sun Dec 23, 2012 9:8PM

Jason Leopold, an investigative journalist for Truth-Out, has obtained FBI documents - through the Freedom of Information Act - relating to Occupy Wall Street. Most of the pages in the documents are redacted, and show concerns of cyber threats against the financial sector. However, there are questions of assassination plots against Occupy activists in Houston, Texas. Because the documents have redactions, it is not clear who or what group was planning the assassinations.

On page 61, the section reads: “An identified [redacted] of October planned to engage in sniper attacks against protesters in Houston, Texas, if deemed necessary. An identified [redacted] had received intelligence that indicated the protesters in New York and Seattle planned similar protests in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin, Texas. [Redacted] planned to gather intelligence against the leaders of the protest groups and obtain photographs, then formulate a plan to kill the leadership via suppressed sniper rifles.”

The bottom of page 68 and the top of page 69 reads: “On October 13, 2011, writer sent via email an excerpt [redacted] regarding FBI Houston’s [redacted] to all IA’s, SSRA’s and SSA [redacted]. This [redacted] identified the exploitation of the Occupy Movement by [redacted] interested in developing a long-term plan to kill local Occupy leaders via sniper fire.”


According to internal documents newly released by the FBI, the agency spearheaded a nationwide law enforcement effort to investigate and monitor the Occupy Wall Street movement. In certain documents, divisions of the FBI refer to the Occupy Wall Street protests as a "criminal activity" or even "domestic terrorism." The Huffington Post

The internal papers were obtained by the Partnership for Civil Justice fund via a Freedom of Information Act Request. The fund, a legal nonprofit that focuses on civil rights, says it believes the 112 pages of documents, available for public viewing on its website, are only "the tip of the iceberg." The Huffington Post

Documents show the spying abuses of the FBI’s “Campus Liaison Program” in which the FBI in Albany and the Syracuse Joint Terrorism Task Force disseminated information to “sixteen different campus police officials,” and then “six additional campus police officials.”

Campus officials were in contact with the FBI for information on OWS. A representative of the State University of New York at Oswego contacted the FBI for information on the OWS protests and reported to the FBI on the SUNY-Oswego Occupy encampment made up of students and professors.

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. The Huffington Post

According to the documents, the FBI coordinated extensively with private companies, including banks that feared they could be affected by Occupy protests. The Huffington Post

The Occupy Wall Street movement, which began on September 17, 2011 in New York City's Wall Street financial district has been rallying against social and economic inequality, greed, corruption and the perceived undue influence of corporations on government-particularly from the financial services sector.

Among the Occupy movement's prime concerns is that large corporations and the global financial system control the world in a way that disproportionately benefits a minority, undermines democracy and is unstable. The Huffington Post

Occupy Wall Street has managed to turn the attention of America’s politicians and citizens to the dismal state of income inequality and economic mobility in the U.S. Think Progress



  1. I don't know what is worse:

    A government seeking to keep its citizens repressed or a people being destroyed for seeking to be heard.

    Both are equally bad. Both will lead to revolution--all be it unintended.

    I don't know...why is it that things are not being fixed when it is easy to do so? Habitat for Humanity has been working in the USA, and I do not doubt that it is because half of our own government is an ineffectual beast. The other half is impotent, unable to stand up for even the smallest justice without being forcibly coerced.

    To fix it would mean integrity would have to flush out the turds in office, and maintain the honest folks still there. Ignoring adverts and going only with their past votes/behaviors.

    It would be simpler to spend those QE3^i dollars directly on housing(canceling mortgages), properly writing down massive non-negotiable debts(without bankruptcy), feeding and clothing the populace. But for some,obvious reason they are not. They worship the wrong thing.

    Birthing does not mete out true worth or humanity.I hope the "dark ones" understand that now. It is taught, made from love, cultivated in *real* conversations, and united in group cooperation.

    It is the whole human family. One repeatedly closed off family circuit will merely run down and break. And I am glad I am getting to see this; as well as experience their controlled demise--and the rise of their enslaved children to freedom! Go team humanity, it appears the "dark ones" might finally go away...

    One can only hope when you're a "small fry" watching the whales duke it out.

  2. Occupy Wall street was a group that is not worth saving.
