Exercising the new powers made possible by his friend President Obama, Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel has preempted the right to peaceful assembly and free expression by sending police to arrest anti-NATO protestors in their apartment, before they could protest. As apart of the new martial law denying the right to due process, preemptive arrests of law-abiding citizens is now the game plan of the Obama Administration. As noted in this article, opposing militarism or globalization — for which NATO is the enforcement arm — is perhaps Occupy’s moment of awakening. After all, when it comes to corrupting democracy, it’s a short walk from Wall Street to the Pentagon.
