January 8, 2016. Noon to 2 pm (approximately). Varick and Houston Streets. NYC.
The three videos I’m posting first are of the civil disobedience (pictures and the speakers videos posted in Part 2)
VIDEO- Police removing the Arm Tubes ( it wasn’t easy)
Traffic was blocked. Streets shut-down. A time consuming removal of the Chinese ARM cuffs. It took a good solid hour from the beginning of the lock down til the 7 were cut loose from the tubes so they could be arrested.
First they started with the wire cutters for the chicken wire. Once police saw the Tube layers, they came back with SAWS. During all of this, the streets were still blocked and the Illegals and their Commie Chums screamed, taunted and cursed at the police with the usual ad hominems.
The NYPD was GREAT. Calm. Professional.
This civil disobedience – blocking the NY streets, sitting on cars and threatening the drivers, happened AFTER a PRESS CONFERENCE AND RALLY BY ICE-FREE NYC in front of the Federal Building.
The action was TO DEMAND ICE-FREE ZONES and to STOP RAIDS & STOP DEPORTATIONS. They claim this protest is in response to the ongoing raids on non-citizens [AKA ILLEGALS] with criminal convictions (!) … and …. on Central American Refugees
It was a mess for over an hour and the press LOVED them. They are well-rehearsed as their obnoxious video of the actual shutdown reveals. [I didn’t witness the shut-down as it was happening- I arrived after they took the streets]
VIDEO – Is as I arrived. They distracted police with a walk around two city blocks, back to Varick St. where we find the “Chinese Arm Cuffed 7 ” blocking the streets to traffic. With signs that say “F*CK ICE” and “F*CK Your Borders”, they block traffic during lunch hour and generally demonstrate that they feel like an entitled mob. They also sit on cars.
VIDEO – The Police start to move traffic (a bit) while the illegals keep blocking the traffic and SCREAMING. At 2:42 the Police begin to examine how to remove the Chinese cuffs. Layers of duct tape and chicken wire over what looked like a metal tubing. This was clearly civil disobedience – blocking the NY streets, sitting on cars and threatening the drivers.
One driver that they harassed says that he is trying to simply get to work, but they don’t care. And, all this occurs during the honking of horns of other drivers trying to get to their destinations for whom these demonstrators have complete disregard.
After they were cut OUT of the Tubes the police were able to arrest them. Finally the streets were clear and all 7 were arrested.
Seven arrested at protest outside ICE offices in NYC in spite of their OUT RAGE.
“In response to the ongoing raids on non-citizens [AKA ILLEGALS] with criminal convictions [hello!] and deportations of Central American Refugees, 7 individuals wearing arm locking devices sat down outside Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) offices blocking the intersection of Varick and West Houston in NYC. All were taken into custody. [of course they were!]
Another report claims that their fellow activists/thugs had to stand in the street to PROTECT the Plucky 7 from being run over! (they will say anything to get attention)
Their own face book video shows (as do my own videos): They STOPPED the TRAFFIC from moving! (and there were PLENTY of police standing all around them) It’s a really odd shaped player – a bit large – but near the end- it’s short- is where you get a good look at all the police in the streets … not the thugs–and NO CARS.
THEY ALWAYS FAKE PAIN – One guy showed ‘pain’ while the NYPD used the saws (of some sort) to cut the tubes open. He then collapsed after they stood him upright. The crowd went “insane” with a mini-riot because he was “in pain” (see first video up top)
Disgusting. Arrogant. Green hats (fake lawyers) were taking down police officers names. Practically glued to them.
And then : FREEDOM: The NY Daily News Reports
Seven were charged with resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration. Another protestor was charged with not having a permit for a sound device.
(One of the seven) Diego Ibanez, 28, a veteran of the Occupy Wall Street movement, tossed the paint on the city’s top cop in November 2014 while protesting a grand jury’s decision not to indict cop Darren Wilson for fatally shooting Michael Brown.
ALSO, typical propaganda LIES about what went down came from Communist Reporter, Caleb Maupin of Iran’s Press TV. [Caleb thinks he’s on Fifth Avenue – not Varick – maybe he was reporting from Tehran- since I never saw him at the protest- BAD Caleb]
Press TV – Iran and Caleb’s LIES – claiming this was a PEACEFUL Protest. No way was that a PEACEFUL Demonstration.
AND – The thugs are proudly promoting that The Commie Speaker of the NYC Council Stands with these Thugs! – OF COURSE –
Melissa Mark-Viverito stands with NYC immigrant families Tell #NYPD drop all charges!
“They created chaos during a NYC lunch hour, and they don’t care, as long as they got in their street theater.
Of notable absence is any politician or political candidate.They care little if ambulances or emergency vehicles are trying to pass. The positive gleaned from all of this is that more people will come to our side after seeing the siege they try to put us under. As one of our more recent NY ICE Members put it, “This has to STOP”.
The opposition supports ILLEGALS. OPEN BORDERS and wants to “stop deportations” and “raids” . They want NYC to be an ICE-FREE Zone.”
Do you really think we can survive? I’d like to stay on the more sophisticated side, but who knows? They became more powerful for the last 10 years. Best,
