Over 2,600 Activists Arrested
in the US Since 2009

By BILL QUIGLEY


PREFACE

The United States is moving inexorably toward war in the Middle East, and it is moving in this direction with the same iron-like determination that it moved toward war with Iraq eight years ago. In addition, as it finesses the Muslim world under the sights of its gun barrels, it is utilizing the same depraved cunning and pernicious subterfuge that it used to maneuver Iraq into its crosshairs almost a decade ago

As one observes the developing situation, one begins to realize that there is NOTHING the Muslim world can do to escape what the U.S. has planned for it; no amount of squirming, no amount of writhing, no amount of shifting and turning can deliver the Muslim world from what the U.S. intends to do to it.

Moreover, anyone who in any way dissents from the cruel policies of the American New World Order System now stand in great jeopardy of being locked up – and this is true of those who dissent against America's policies at home as well as America's policies abroad.

The list is endless of those who are being affected - whether members of black activist groups protesting the living conditions of poor blacks throughout the country, peace activists protesting the murderous foreign policy of the United States, economic activists protesting against the WTO, the IMF, and the World Bank, etc.; all these activists are sitting in (or have sat in) jail not so much because they engaged in criminal activities as such, but because they proved to be too much of a political nuisance to the elites.

To be sure, most are imprisoned under color of the criminal code; but for the most part, the criminal charges against them are nothing more than trumped up lies - charges that have no real bearing as to why they are actually in prison.

This phenomenon - the growing penchant of the elites to lock up their opponents behind prison doors - while a relatively new phenomenon insofar as the American homeland is concerned, is one that the American elites have been using against their opponents throughout the American Imperial System for many years now - a proclivity that has resulted in the creation of an offshore archipelago of torture and imprisonment. [Please see our article, "The Horror of John Dimitri Negroponte and Everything He Represents" for an insight as to how this system has been working in the slave-states of the American New World Order System; please also see "The Death Squads: Bringing in the Kingdom of God through Terror, Torture and Death."]

What follows is partial list of people who have been arrested in the so-called "homeland" since the beginning of 2009; the list was compiled by Bill Quigley; Quigley is a professor of law at Loyola University New Orleans and Associate Legal Director at the Center for Constitutional Rights.

Oh, that Christians possessed the same kind of courage that those listed below have – the courage to stand up and protest the alliance that the church has made with the American New World Order System.

Since the beginning of 2009, there have been over two thousand six hundred arrests of activists protesting in the US.   Research shows over 670 people have been arrested in protests inside the US already in 2011, over 1290 were arrested in 2010, and 665 arrested in 2009.   These figures certainly underestimate the number actually arrested as arrests in US protests are rarely covered by the mainstream media outlets which focus so intently on arrests of protestors in other countries.  [Please see our article, "Are US Presidents Afraid of the CIA" – an article which explains why Obama, despite his liberal proclivities, is afraid to reign in America's police-state apparatus.]  

Arrests at protest have been increasing each year since 2009.  Those arrested include people protesting US wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, Guantanamo, strip mining, home foreclosures, nuclear weapons, immigration policies, police brutality, mistreatment of hotel workers, budget cutbacks, Blackwater, the mistreatment of Bradley Manning, and right wing efforts to cut back collective bargaining.

Information on these arrests has been taken primarily from the newsletter The Nuclear Resister, which has been publishing reports of anti-nuclear resistance arrests since 1980, and anti-war actions since 1990.

In the list below I give the date of the protest arrest and a brief summary of the reason for the protest; also I provide the name of the organization that sponsored the protest.

Again, this is only a partial list of those who have been arrested in protests across the country.
