I wanted to share this blog post with folks in Columbus just in case you all are not following this blog elsewhere. The author points out that even though the Occupy "Movement" is coming to an end, resistance to capitalism and the state is not ending and has the potential to grow.
From the organization that hosts Columbus Indymedia.
Progressive Internet organization May First/People Link has released footage of what appears to be an FBI operation to return the Riseup.net server that they had seized two weeks ago from a colocation space shared by riseup.net and MF/PL. The footage, taken by a small surveillance camera MF/PL technologists installed after the FBI seizure of the server, is a rare glimpse of what appears to be an FBI operation.
Neither May First/People Link or Riseup was not notified that the server was being replaced. It was never notified that the server was taken in the first place.

“CLEAN AIR AND WATER FOR ALL”
When I donated 250 bucks to the Obama for President campaign in the spring of 2008, I was about as excited as any cynic can be. I had soured on the Democrats for, what I thought was, forever after eight years of Clinton corporatism, welfare reform and Tipper Gore's attacks on rock 'n roll. I resolved never again to vote for another Democrat for president, and certainly to never vote for another southern white guy regardless of his political persuasion. I gladly voted for Nader in 2000 and I'd do it again. Remember, Al Lieberman was Mr. Gore's running mate.
