VIDEO: Indymedia Newsreal

June 29, 2009 -- This week Indymedia presents a short piece on police brutality by Tajuan LaBee. Prompted by the beating of a 15 year old girl by two Seattle-area jailers, he asks if teachers and nurses are not allowed to beat up people, then why do we tolerate violence by cops?

Then we visit the Judas Goat, a reference to military recruiters.

We round out the show with two pieces from the newly released The Leader #17. (1) Break The Cuba Blockade, created by Steve Anderson, examines the Pastors For Peace efforts to deliver supplies to Cuba. (2) Seattle Out and Proud by Tacoma Joe LaSac is just in time for Pride season activities.
