Foreign Intelligence Briefing #383: #Occupy Police Crackdown Coming To #Vancouver?

Are these recent scenes from Oakland, CA – with all the tear gas, flash bangs, rubber bullets and 120 arrests – next for the #OccupyVancouver folks camped out on the VAG’s front lawn? The violent evictions are on the ascendant (see also Chicago and Melbourne), and in China, from the annals of You Know You’re On To Something When…, authorities have banned the word “occupy” on all search engines and micro-blogging services. Let’s hope that Mayor Gregor sticks to his words: “We have to be patient with this. It’s happening all over the world in hundreds and hundreds of cities. We can’t expect a miracle overnight here. We cannot provoke violence and chaos in our city.” Wanna bet?
