I’m currently on the road again, travelling to Connecticut to visit my family and then on to New York City for the September 17 1-year anniversary of Occupy Wall St. My schedule is very busy, but let me know if you’ll be around and I’ll try to say hello!
90.1 KPFT, Houston’s Pacifica Station, interviewed me on Monday about the infiltration of Occupy Austin by Austin Police Department. You can read a transcript of my interview on Firedoglake:
KPFT: Now your blog points to a key question in this incident: Why did undercover Austin Police Department Detective Shannon G Dowell provide material support for an activist protest that resulted in them being charged with a felony in Houston, Texas? Did you actually get an answer to that question?
Kit: We did not. It’s unclear to what degree the Austin Police Department knew about this. They’re admitting, even bragging about their use of undercover officers. The police chief has been talking on Twitter about how it kept the people safe to do this but they’re at the same time saying that they weren’t aware of Dowell buying the lockboxes. I find that hard to believe and I would still like some answers.
