Alexa O'Brien a reporter for WLCentral.org, an unofficial WikiLeaks resource news website , reports that she was temporarily detained and harassed by Fort Mead MP's and the base Public Information Officer in a dispute over her press credentials today.

O'Brien gained notoriety as a founder of the Occupy Wall Street movement and US Day Of Rage, an organization whose aim is campaign finance reform. She is also one of seven plaintiffs in a lawsuit that won an injunction in Federal Court that has stopped the implementation of certain portions of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) dealing with unlawful detention of American citizens.

Today's incident calls into question the impartiality of the 'public information office' at the Army base where the hearing is being held. Specifically the treatment and access by reporters wishing to cover the Bradley Manning court proceedings.

O'Brien was approached by MP's who claim she was being 'disruptive'. Two members of the media pool, from the Associated Press and Court House News, were asked by the officers to leave the room during the questioning of O'Brien. A request which the reporters thought was unnecessary. O'Brien had asked the reporters to stay to witness the incident. "We're interested in how the government is handling media coverage of this event". "If all your going to do is go over the rules," one of the reporters can be heard saying on the audio tape of the incident before he was interrupted by one of the MP's.

O'Brien is certainly not one to be fooled with when it comes to her constitutional rights. Her activism in the name of protecting her and other people's rights is strong testimony to that fact.

Here's the audio of the incident recorded by O'Brien:

BRISBANE - Catholic Workers Confront Gen. Cosgrove as the Public Face of Catholic Education, Demanding he Repent the War on Iraq or Resign as Chancellor of Australian Catholic University

Members of the pacifist Catholic Worker movement conducted an anti-war vigil outside the gates of St. James College Fortitude Valley/ Brisbane on Monday in opposition to Gen Cosgrove giving the opening speech at Catholic Education Week.

Catholic Workers had previously protested in 2010 outside a St. Mary's Cathedral/ Sydney mass conducted by Cardinal Pell celebrating the installation of General Cosgrove as Chancellor of Australian Catholic University.

A simultaneous protest vigil was also then conducted at St. Stephen's Cathedral Brisbane

Last Monday's anti-war vigil at the gates of St. James College, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane was preceeded by a "Radical Rosary Mystery Tour". The tour commenced at the Fortitude Valley site of the 1973 Whiskey Au Go Go nightclub firebombing massacre. The mass murder was the largest killing of white Australians in history at the time.

Catholic Workers read the names and ages of the slain Darcy Day (22), Paul Zoller (18), Colin Folsier (19), David Green (19), Leslie Palethorpe (20), William Nolan (22), Peter Marcus (23), Jennifer Davies (17), Fay Will (19), Wendy Drew (24), Carol Green (27), Desma Carrol (29), Brian Watson (32), Desmond Peters (31) and Earnest Peters (50). The slaughter was an expression of the long term co-operation between corrupt members of the Queensland Police Force and criminals in the redlight Fortitude Valley.

Catholic Workers reflected that this retail scale of murder and corruption expressed in the Whiskey Au Go Go slaughter was echoed and multiplied in wholesale proprotions in the Australian war effort on Iraq lead by General Cosgrove.
