Columbus, Ohio –  The Ohio Liberty Council (OLC) is reacting to the failed terrorist attack in Cleveland by calling for a full investigation by the media and law enforcement officials throughout Ohio of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Ohio Liberty Council President, Tom Zawistowski, said,  “The evidence is clear that the Cleveland terrorists were active members of the Occupy Movement in Cleveland. A movement that, in April, held “training camps” for activists in Ohio at which media reports indicate attendees were trained to “create havoc and disruptions” and to “create gridlock”. Our organization provided documentation to Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine in April indicating that it was likely that the Occupy Movement would be orchestrating violence in Ohio before this year’s elections, including plans to attack TEA Party groups throughout Ohio.”

Zawistowski went on to say, “We believe that the Occupy Movement is being funded by the UAW and the SEIU and is being managed by groups like Progress Ohio.  These groups may be encouraging this type of criminal activity by the type of people they are recruiting and the training they are providing.  Reports indicate that their goal is to create civil unrest and to intimidate citizens and groups who oppose their big government agenda. The media and our law enforcement agencies have been way behind the curve on this activity and they need to start taking this threat seriously before someone gets killed.”

The Ohio Liberty Council is a council of Liberty Group leaders whose purpose is to unite conservative grassroots organizations for greater effectiveness in the state and nation, and to provide resources for member organizations to strengthen their groups. The OLC currently has over 75 liberty-minded groups across Ohio who are members of its coalition.
