DN!: Occupy Austin Activists set up for Felony Charges by Police

DemocracyNow.org – As Occupy Wall Street prepares to mark its first anniversary, members of Occupy Austin have discovered that their arrests on felony charges after a protest last December are directly linked to equipment provided by a police detective who infiltrated their group. The activists locked arms inside tubes made of PVC pipe that the police had designed, constructed and dropped off for the protest. We’re joined from Austin by Ronnie Garza, one of the members of Occupy Austin facing felony charges stemming from the December protest; and from Houston by Greg Gladden, National Lawyers Guild member and past president of the Texas American Civil Liberties Union.
