**MEDIA ALERT**

Military Training Exercises to Take Place In and
Around Boston.



Joint federal military training exercises will take place within and around the Boston area between July 26th and August 5th. Military personnel will conduct training exercises to ensure the military's ability to operate in urban environments, prepare forces for upcoming overseas deployments, and meet mandatory training certification requirements. Helicopters will be used in some exercises.

The Boston Police Department is working with military personnel to coordinate training sites that will minimize negative impacts on our Boston citizens and their daily routines. Safety precautions have been taken to prevent risk to the general public and the military personnel involved. With that, training site locations are not open to the public and will be guarded by uniformed personnel to provide additional safety.

Preparation for Crushing Rebellion
31 Jul 2011
Given the collapse of the economy and the fact that any major rebellion in the USA will start in New England, this is clearly a training exercise aimed at preparing to crush us. If there is any opportunity to make their exercise run unsmoothly, perhaps it should be embraced (non-violently of course).
