Bergstresser is believed to be responsible or knows at least who is actually responsible for the injuries to Scott Olsen.

The police actions towards Occupy Protestors all around the world has been deplorable
Occupy Melbourne Protestors were forcibly removed from the City Square

Still with no electricity or livestream up the logistics group have just as importantly secured 24 hour access to toilets and wash rooms which are adjacent to the City Square. People are in high spirits as the early indicators show that the protest has grass roots support as seen from the Nurses Uion, Builders and Transport workers.
The video below is from the second day at OccupyMelbourne. Albert Langer speaks offering some direction to the general assembly process.
Albert Langer is perhaps arguably Australia’s first political consciousness prisoner as Albert took on the Australian Electoral Commission which led to him spending time as a guest of Her Majesty Prison System for contempt. The 329 (a) was a controversial blackout on ‘how to vote”.
“Police Agent Provocateurs – a short history”
Police Agent Provocateurs, (PAP) have been appearing at public demonstrations with a single intent to cause disturbance and spark violence.
The video below, “Police Agent Provocateurs – a short history” shows police agent provocateurs being caught out at different demonstrations.
Firstly in Montebello, Quebec. 20 th August 2007. Peaceful protestors quell a group of what is later admittedly police agent provocateurs. They try to disrupt the Stop the SSP picket line, however they are thwarted and make the admission that they are in fact Police.
Second is from the University of Pittsburgh 26 th September 2011. A non-vioent protest against police brutality is interrupted by the “exposing” of a number of under cover police who jostle the crowd, which is made up mostly of young women and men.
The #OccupyRome protests were also proven to have PAP’s (Police Agent Provocateurs) working in amongst the crowd and in this picture it can be clearly seen the ‘arrested’ protestors have the same boots as their ‘arresting’ police counterparts.
Finally from Canada another example of PAP’s as clearly seen , men dressed in hooded jackets , all black apparel, are quiet obviusly let in through the police line as it closes.
If you present at an Occupy just take a look at the person next to you, it could be a cop.
