"Ring of Steel" likens the surveillance-happy police state in New York City—whose violent, militaristic tactics were exposed thanks to the emergence of Occupy Wall Street—to a discordant cacophony of noise music set against stark concrete from which cameras sinisterly protrude. Thousands of cameras capture our visage each day—something this film won't let you forget.

"Shouts in the Sky" is a documentary film about the civil movement born in May, 2011, in Barcelona, Spain. Through an occupation of the main square, Plaça de Catalunya, which remained occupied for months to demand direct democracy and rethinking of economical and political structures, the movement created a new space that challenged the passivity of society. As the uprising grew, the state and the media used many ways to try to discredit and stop the movement violently - sound familiar? - but the movement was determined to peacefully resist, despite being fired upon by police brandishing rubber bullets.
"In the film we follow many dialogues between people, police, ideologies, political and economical forces and the state," the filmmakers said.
Citing Oakland Police's continued use of violent tactics against Occupy Oakland, the hacktivist group known as Anonymous has published sensitive personal information of several Oakland government employees and officials.
The cyber attack was announced on Twitter, with Anonymous posting links to a statement published on Pastebin. (Sorry, I'm not going to link to the information site.)
"Anonymous has been watching. Since the inception of Occupy Oakland, We have been actively monitoring your behavior, and exposing the identities and sensitive information of Officers of the Oakland Police Department; as they have continued to act in an unprofessional and violent manner. You tear gassed Us. You shot Us with your weapons."
"You arrested Us. You beat Us. You also did this to Our Friends, and to Our Families. We watched as you cut budgets, cut Our jobs, closed Our schools, Our parks, and Our libraries, while leaving your own salaries alone."
"The people on this list are supposed to represent the best of what the City of Oakland has to offer. If they are the best, why is there so much trouble within the Police Department, and in the City of Oakland?"
