G20 Activist Tank Speaks Potent Message About Police Overkill
Protest performance art group the "Space Invaders" goes to "protect banks"; Arrested for "impersonating police"
The activist group Space Hijackers joined with police to take care of any "bad" demonstrators who might have shown up to anti-G20 protests in the City of London today. At 10:30 this morning they showed up with a CCTV-equipped armoured vehicle in front of the Royal Bank of Scotland and prepared to defend the building. Police spoilsports refused their help, conducted thorough search of the vehicle, and moved them along. They were later arrested outside News International under section 19 of the Police Act (impersonating police) and taken to West End Central police station. [Read more]

Twin Cities activists attend swearing-in ceremony of new Ramsey County Deputies
Tonight, Twin Cities activists entered Landmark Center in St. Paul at 7:00 PM to attend an open to the public event celebrating the swearing in of six new deputies for the Ramsey County Sheriff's Department. Two of these shining stars were known informants of the RNC Welcoming Committee, Chris Dugger and Rachel Neiting. The one and only Bobby Fletcher awarded the new tools of the state, asserting how proud he was of their "outstanding" work in successfully infiltrating the known "Criminal Anarchist Enterprise" during the RNC. Fletcher continued on how hard it must have been to be undercover, sitting through countless of meetings and even going as far as to "DUMPSTER DIVE," the obscene act of digging through the trash for food.

Installation of RNC photo exhibit "Looking Back, Moving Forward"
The premise of the LOOKING BACK, MOVING FORWARD exhibit was to offer a community space where people could leave behind, access, or take home as evidence a wide variety of frozen photographic moments from the Republican National Convention that took place in St. Paul, MN in September 2008. The exhibit opened at the Black Dog Coffee and Wine Bar in Lowertown, St. Paul, MN, on January 3rd and closed on January 31st. Community submissions were sought for the exhibit during the month, and from an initial showing of 35 images on Day 1, the exhibit grew to over 300 images. The exhibit is currently scheduled to travel next to Pittsburgh. [Read more]

RNC Photos: Exhibit 2 (8_31_08 evidence)
Exhibits from the RNC Commission Report
There is no index in the online RNC Public Safety Review Commission's report of what these items are. Exhibits are referred to throughout the text of the report. The 48 photographs only titled "Exhibit 2 (8_31_08 evidence)". There were no August 31st raids to the best of our knowledge. This is therefore most likely to be a massed collection of "evidence" from several of the raids of items Ramsey County Sheriff Bob Fletcher paraded repeatedly on television in the days after the pre-Convention raids.
