Short Story: "Solidarity"
Short Story: It was midday when we carried our anger out of doors, off the buses, off the trains, out of our cars, from bikes, and the soles of our sneakers. They were waiting there. They were waiting there because we had prophesied our own arrival on Twitter, on our profiles, from the rooftops of our lungs. We're coming. We can't hold back any more. We're taking the capitol. We'll see you at the summit. They wore riot gear, and so did we. Theirs was made from plastics and kevlar. Ours was made from flannel and dye. They had shields; we had signs made from paper and marker and middle fingers. Their helmets had blast guards. We dipped our bandannas in vinegar, yet they could still see our faces. No analogy armed us against their tear gas, concussion grenades, rubber bullets, guns, guns, guns, but, in beginning, there was the word, and the word was with us. We shouted the word. We were the word.

Dance party and protest part of larger pressure campaign urging the dismissal of politically motivated charges
RNC arrestees and allies to rally against Chris Coleman on Monday Community activists plan to rally against St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman this coming Monday, December 15th.

The RNC security plan included the provision of up to $40 million in taxpayer funds for police weaponry and the unprecedented assurance of RNC money to cover both unlimited legal fees and up to $10 million in damages, should suits be filed against the police. [Read more]

Dave Mahoney support event in UK
A Talk on "The Terrorisation of Dissent" with excerpts from the film "Terrorizing Dissent" and a speaker from the campaign to support RNC protest arrestee Dave Mahoney.

He was arrested by the FBI during the Republican National Convention in September 2008 and has been charged with 3 counts of aiding and abetting 2nd degree assault and 3 counts of terrorist threats, for an incident that apparently has the loosest connections imaginable to a so called 'assault'. Trapped in Minneapolis, Dave now faces expensive legal costs and over 20 years in prison.  [Read more]
