German city bans Occupy rally

Well, so much for a democratic EU.

In Frankfurt, Germany, the city's Municipal Department for Public Order (now that's a phrase that evokes freedom!) has ordered a ban on an Occupy-affiliated protest that had been scheduled for this week. The protest - known as Blockupy Frankfurt - is supposed to be going on now against a gathering of greed merchants from throughout the continent who are meeting to promote their failed austerity policies.

Indeedity-doodledy, there have been arrests of Occupy peeps who defied the ban.

No wonder the European Union is on the brink of collapse. The EU has long been a gloomy burgoo of undemocratic, corporatist ideas. Whether it's suppressing free speech, expanding Big Business's power, or persecuting religious minorities, the EU has done it all.
