"…CLGC’s memo proposes that the ABA pay CLGC $850,000 to conduct “opposition research” on Occupy Wall Street in order to construct “negative narratives” about the protests and allied politicians. The memo also asserts that Democratic victories in 2012 would be detrimental for Wall Street and targets specific races in which it says Wall Street would benefit by electing Republicans instead…"

Send a letter to the NYPD expressing your solidarity with the protesters and urging the police to exercise restraint. Also, tell them the world is watching. And thank them for all their hard work.

Imagine what affect it would have if the police got 100,000,000 letters of support for the protesters. Edit. x2 It’d be hard for the media to dismiss all the protesters as wackos and hooligans with that outpouring of public support.

The new American revolutionaries are no longer interested in talk. They want action.
