FBI Was Monitoring Occupy Wall Street Before Protests Began in New York City

FBI agents were monitoring the Occupy Wall Street movement before the first protesters set up camp in Zuccotti Park in New York City, the New York Daily News reports, citing new documents.

Records show the FBI tipped off officials about potential protests at the New York Stock Exchange, Federal Hall and the Museum of American Finance, the Daily News wrote.

One of the tips came as early as Aug. 19, 2011, about a month before the movement began.

Investigations continued nationwide as the movement spread, the Daily News reported.

The heavily redacted documents show the FBI overreached its legal bounds, the head of the civil-rights group, Partnership for Civil Justice Fund, said.

“(It’s) a window into the nationwide scope of the FBI’s surveillance, monitoring, and reporting on peaceful protestors organizing with the Occupy movement,” Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, the partnership’s executive director told the Daily News.
