Operation SHIELD for Occupation Safety


The following is from the Operation SHIELD website:

We have ALL sat back for weeks and watched a good amount of police brutality occur. We have all sat back furious and frustrated, and with no outlet for our frustration. OcPo would like to introduce you to Operation SHIELD. Occupy Police has thought long and hard for week on our next move, and we’ve finally solidified our resolve to combat police brutality directly with Operation SHIELD. Police should expect SHIELD members to appear when police are on site, SHIELD members will act honorably, if you are an officer, you can expect, not to be attacked, cursed or yelled at, spit on, or harmed by a SHIELD member, there will be a contact number if this occurs. You can also expect SHIELD members to be interlocked together creating a barrier which separates protestors from police.
