Occupier Lisa Fithian Training Union Activists for Michigan Protests
Yahoo News is reporting that far-left anarchist Lisa Fithian is training protestors in Michigan on "direct action techniques" in preparation for the upcoming right-to-work protests. Fithian, exposed in the film Occupy Unmasked, is the radical frequently employed by labor unions such as the United Auto Workers. With Fithian involved, look for fireworks in the coming days in the battle for Michigan to become a right-to-work state.
According to Yahoo:
More than 200 activists attended training Saturday in preparation for a protest at the Michigan Capitol, where lawmakers are putting the final touches on legislation that would allow workers to stop paying union dues.
Between chants, cheers and applause, organizers warned those at the training to be prepared for insults and obstruction Tuesday in Lansing. The volunteers lined up on opposite sides of a long hall at UAW Local 600 in suburban Detroit and took turn turns portraying protesters and union critics.
"Humanize the situation. Be clear with your intentions. Introduce yourself," national labor activist Lisa Fithian, of Austin, Texas, said through a megaphone. "They're going to do everything they can to criminalize us."
Despite the victim rhetoric, Fithian is known for advocating violent behavior. Breitbart readers have been introduced to her antics a number of times, including her training at Occupy and her anti-Israel, pro-Intifada demonstrations.
Brandon Darby, long time nemesis of Fithian commented:
Lisa Fithian openly states that she exists to make capitalism and patriarchy crash, she openly states that she needs to create chaos in order to build want she wants. Combine this with her open support of convicted bomb makers who wanted to burn and maim law enforcement officers and Republican delegates at the 2008 RNC -- I'd say this is a dangerous situation.
