**Report: Banks, Police Share Occupy Monitoring**

Ahead of May Day, new reports have emerged of major banks working with police to monitor Occupy protesters. According to Bloomberg News, the nation’s largest banks are sharing information about protesters’ May Day plans amongst themselves, as well as with police.

Tuesday’s day of action includes a list of 99 sites in Manhattan where protesters will gather to rally against corporate power. The banks are also sharing intelligence in preparation for the antiwar protests set for the NATO summit in Chicago later in May.

The information sharing is relying on video surveillance, robots and officers positioned in buildings to monitor protesters’ movements.
