New Violence and Press Intimidation

Kevin Gosztola notes:

Oakland police in riot gear fired smoke, tear gas, flash bang grenades and rubber bullets at Occupy Oakland protesters trying to take a vacant building this afternoon.

Here is footage:

As usual at Occupy protests, reporters were harassed. Indeed – because of the intentional harassment of reporters at Occupy protests – the U.S. has fallen to 47th in global press freedom rankings.
