Occupy Wall Street coverage

28 Feb, 2012

In a Rolling Stone exclusive, Hastings reports that Homeland Security tracked the Occupy Wall Street movement:

An internal DHS report entitled ‚ÄúSPECIAL COVERAGE: Occupy Wall Street,” dated October of last year, opens with the observation that “mass gatherings associated with public protest movements can have disruptive effects on transportation, commercial, and government services, especially when staged in major metropolitan areas.”

The report is one of 5 million documents leaked by WikiLeaks and examined by the magazine.
