Police include Occupy movement on ‘terror’ list –The Occupy movement is listed alongside threats posed by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Columbia (FARC), ‘Al Qaeda’ and Belarusian terrorists. 05 Dec 2011 City of London Police have sparked controversy by producing a brief in which the Occupy London movement is listed under domestic terrorism/extremism threats to City businesses. The document was given to protesters at their “Bank of Ideas” base on Sun Street – a former site of financial corporation UBS. City police have stepped up an effort to quell the movement since they occupied the building on 18 November, with the document stating: “It is likely that activists aspire to identify other locations to occupy, especially those they identify with capitalism.”
