This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

Documents describing involvement of your agency with enforcement against people involved in the Occupy movement or OWS movement. For example the arrest of three people on May 1 allegedly involved in planning to blow up a bridge in Cleveland, or three people allegedly involved in terrorism activity in Chicago who were arrested on May 17, any other similar events around the United States.
