City of London Police have sparked controversy by producing a brief in which the Occupy London movement is listed under domestic terrorism/extremism threats to City businesses.

The document was given to protesters at their “Bank of Ideas” base on Sun Street – a former site of financial corporation UBS. City police have stepped up an effort to quell the movement since they occupied the building (http://us.lrd.yahoo.com/SIG=137qbrlpu/EXP=1324921089/**http%3A//uk.news.yahoo.com/occupy-london-protesters--take-over--ubs-office-block.html) on 18 November, with the document stating: “It is likely that activists aspire to identify other locations to occupy, especially those they identify with capitalism.

And it seems Seattle may be listing them likewise as well.

Last night, undeterred by the city's destruction of their original encampment, hundreds of Occupy Seattle (http://occupyseattle.org/) supporters occupied a vacant warehouse slated for demolition and condo development. After entering, Occupiers erected barricades, held a General Assembly, and began plans to fix up the space for community use.



Using SWAT teams and a ladder truck, police swarmed the warehouse, making 20 arrests and setting an unsettling precedent for the escalating use of military-style tactics against nonviolent occupiers who are liberating public space.

Occupy Seattle is currently holding a jail solidarity action in front of the King County jail and are requesting all their supporters show up!

A park or a street can usually be a 'public space' under US law, it's pretty damned hard to make a defensible case that a condemned warehouse is. Charge their asses with B&E, I say.
