Volunteering at the RNC; Part #2

NYC, 30.08.2004 14:02

I got up at 5am this Saturday morning. I shaved and showered, skipped the sit-ups, and headed out to the Sheraton at 53rd and 7th to pick up my volunteer I.D. and t-shirt.

The gaggle of cops at the hotel entrance didn’t take notice of me, but a self-styled ‘conservative’ young man who I spoke to later on told me that they’d stopped him for a thorough interrogation, figuring he might be some sort of protester.

It’s nice to know my fellow activists can make their presence felt, even if they aren’t early risers.

I’d like to report that from 7am to 1pm I was implementing some particularly entertaining and outrageous scheme, but the truth is I ended up amiably talking politics with various volunteers and staff for the duration of my shift.

The Not Quite &quot;Battle&quot; of Central Park

NYC, 30.08.2004 13:38

For weeks the rumors flew. Chicago ’68. Anarchists on the grass. Militancy unleashed. Riot on the great lawn. The Battle of Central Park.

Not quite. [see pictures].

Peace, relaxation, and plain simple, fun, seemed to be the order of the day on the Great Lawn. Happy about the peaceful denouement to the UFPJ protest? Disappointed? Share your Central Park stories with us.

Secret Service Attempts Subpoena For Indymedia Logs as Part of Harassment Campaign

NYC, 30.08.2004 13:17

As was reported in today's New York Times, the Department of Justice has opened a criminal investigation and is demanding records concerning anti-RNC deleagte posts to this website. Specifically, the DOJ is seeking information on lists of 2,200 RNC delegate names posted to our Open Newswire.

NYC Indymedia believes that this investigation is wholly without merit, and is part of a larger campaign of intimidation against our supporters and peaceful protest activities surrounding the RNC.

Additionally, NYC Indymedia does not keep the records that the DOJ is seeking. According to Global Indymedia, "as a result of [previous] attempts to violate our clear rights, we felt it prudent to develop a policy of not voluntarily gathering data for the government on people who visit our websites, or who post material to sites. '. . . we do not log IP addresses as a way of protecting the privacy of our visitors. . .'

Those of us at New York Indymedia feel, first and foremost, that this site is in the business of media-making and journalism. We invite first time visitiors to look around, and we hope they like what they see.

Calyx's contacts at Indymedia are represented by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. We advise all members of the press to contact our lawyers for further comment on this matter.

Hundreds of thousands protest Bush in NYC

Hudson Mohawk, 30.08.2004 11:58

More than half a million anti-Bush protestors took to the streets of Manhattan on Sunday as part of the United for Peace and Justice protest. The police in the days leading up to the march have been trying to intimidate protestors, arresting hundreds beforehand, including many bicyclists when over 5,000 joined the monthly Critical Mass bike ride through the city. The National Lawyers Guild has complained of police harrassment of legal observers. Protests will continue throughout the week.

Save Happy Valley campaigners hunger strike and occupy mine site

Aotearoa, 30.08.2004 07:27

Two South Island students began a hunger strike today in protest of the proposed "Cypress" mine in Happy Valley. The students will confine themselves to a small platform suspended from a tree on the road to Stockton, near Granity on the West Coast.

"What we are doing may seem dangerous, but the dangers posed by the Cypress Mine are far greater. We want to illustrate the hunger and suffering that global climate change will cause, to empathise with those who have no voice in the world." stated Fiona Gibson, one of the hunger strikers.

A number of protestors from around New Zealand have also occupied the site of the proposed mine for the second time.

The proposed mine will extract 500,000 tonnes of coal from the mine each year for 10 years, mostly for export. Protestors say the mine will cause massive loss of vegetation, and destroy habitat for endangered insects and kiwi. [ Read more ]

Interviews from UFPJ March, Part 1

NYC, 30.08.2004 05:10

It was big—the biggest protest ever at a political convention in American history. And despite all the scare stories about rabid "anarchists," it was almost completely peaceful, at least in the main march.

On the afternoon of August 29, hundreds of thousands of people marched through the streets of lower Midtown Manhattan to protest the regime and policies of George W. Bush. The demonstrators stepped off from Seventh Avenue and 23rd Street around 11:30 a.m., walked north past Madison Square Garden, and circled back east and south to Union Square. Five hours later, there were still people filing down Broadway to the dispersal point. Organizers from United for Peace and Justice claimed that the march drew 500,000 people; if that figure were accurate, it would mean that the day’s anti-Bush protesters almost exceeded the number of registered Republicans in all of New York City.

The marchers ranged from octogenarians to babies in strollers sheltered from the sun by "We Say No to the Bush Agenda" banners. They were united by one thing: Disgust for Bush’s stances on just about every issue, from abortion rights to xenophobia.

Day 3 in NY:New tech,more cop&amp;media tricks and huge numbers

DC, 30.08.2004 04:07

Today we had the gigantic UFPJ March that took hours and hours from nose to tail. The mainstream press is putting out lowball estimates as low as 100,000, but nothing less than 250K is reasonable. I don't know, but it could have been more than that.

NYC, 30.08.2004 03:58

Today in New York City, 500,000 people marched in solidarity with the rest of the world, denouncing policies of the U.S. government from every possible angle. After a 6-hour long march, protesters did not just pack up their signs and go home. Various autonomous contingents sprawled out across the city, doing everything from a "kick the heads of state" soccer game in Central Park, to jail solidarity demonstrations for those arrested, to a relentless verbal assault campaign on Republican delegates trying to hide out in Broadway theaters. "Republican scum! Your time has come!" was a chant that could be heard up and down the avenues this afternoon.

RNC Protest is Largest Ever

Urbana-Champaign, 30.08.2004 03:33

Depending on who you ask, the protests in NYC in the run-up to the Republican National Convention have been attended by thousands, tens of thousands, or maybe hundreds of thousands of people. But there seems to be universal agreement that the demonstration is the largest ever against a national political convention.

Republican National Convention Counteractions

Aotearoa, 29.08.2004 23:29

For the first time in history, from August 30 to September 2 2004, New York City will be the site of the annual Republican National Convention (RNC). The main purpose of the convention is to nominate current president George W Bush as the Republican presidential candidate for the forthcoming election, but the event will be met by mass protest by local and international activists.

An alternative media mobilisation is providing ongoing coverage of the Republican National Convention protests in New York - see: NYC Indymedia

Earth Meanders: Conservative Fascism is Un-American

Madison, 29.08.2004 23:23

I recently wrote that "President Bush is a lying fascist christian fanatic warmonger that threatens the Earth and civilized society". I deeply regret these remarks, having failed to add "war criminal, eco-terrorist and small evil little man" to the list. This essay strongly asserts that America has gone drastically wrong, and that conservative fascism has arisen that threatens America, the world and the Earth's existence as we know them.

Baltimore IMC Open House Rousing Success

Fifty media activists turned out for Baltimore Independent Media Center's second open house.  Held at the Progressive Action Center on Wednesday, August 25, the informal meeting provided the opportunity for a diverse group of media-engaged people to resume, and in some cases begin, a process of city-wide networking.  By the end of the spirited meeting and half a case of great wine (selected by the IMC sommelier) cards, flyers, and internet addresses were exchanged, and some IMCers began talking of a follow-up meeting.

Bikesagainstbush creator Joshua Kinberg was arrested while taping an interview with MSNBC's Ron Reagan in Manhattan Saturday afternoon.

Kinberg was stopped by police while demonstrating the bicycle for the television interview. His bicycle is a high-tech graffiti writer, using chalk to print anti-Bush political messages sent by people via the internet. Apparently there was a question of whether or not the sprayed messages were a defacement of property.
