Mild-Mannered Labor Rally Against Bush; Central Labor Council Honors Pledge to Respect the RNC

NYC, 02.09.2004 16:03

Yesterday, after days of demonstrations and direct actions by radicals, bikers, anarchists, community groups, and ordinary New Yorkers, it was labor's turn to show its displeasure at the policies of the Bush administration.

In the morning, thousands of people formed a symbolic "unemployment line" and waved "pink slips" in the air. In the afternoon. thousands of labor activists jammed eigth avenue to rally outside of the RNC.

Nevertheless, more wide-scale labor disruption did not occur during the RNC. Indeed, it seems as if the lack of labor strife can largely be attributed to a deal struck by Bloomberg and the Central Labor Council of NYC in which unions agreed not to disrupt the convention, which runs from Aug. 30 through Sept. 2, despite Bush's overwhelmingly anti-labor policies.

S2 Look Ahead: Convention to End, Bush Still President, Protests Continue

NYC, 02.09.2004 14:27

On the final day of the RNC in New York, protests are likely to me smaller and more subdued than in previous days. Actions against the RNC will, however, continue.

United For Peace and Justice will hold a candlelight vigil at 8:00pm in Union Square.

International ANSWER will hold a rally outside the Garden starting at 7pm, 31st St. and 8th.

The Artists and Activists United for Peace Coalition has planned a march through Harlem, preceded by a rally at the Harlem State Office Building.

And of course, there may be numerous small, unplanned actions against the RNC by the people of New York throughout the day.

Accounts from IMC reporters inside The Tombs

NYC, 02.09.2004 05:21

There appears to be at least 1,000 protesters being held at "The Tombs." Males are occupying at least an entire floor. They believe people are no longer being held at Pier 57 (is it a coincidence that a federal judge is reportedly on his/her way to the Pier to inspect it?) One detainee offered a report of extreme police violence, more of which are sure to surface as people are released.

Important: Read before posting photos

NYC, 01.09.2004 20:17

There are almost 2,000 people in jail. The system is overwhelmed. Many of these prisoners will go to court. Some of these people have committed nonviolent acts of civil disobedience and will be prosecuted more severely than your average rapist. Please don't make it more difficult for these folks. During the 2000 RNC during which only 480 people were detained/arrested and 420 faced charges, prosecution had to prove that the defendants were at the "scene of the crime". Without video or photo evidence, charges were often dropped. During the trials resulting from Bush's inaguration, police successfully used photos pulled from indymedia to prosecute protesters. Therefore, when you post your pictures (which are fantastic, by the way - keep them coming!), please smudge the faces of the people in them if they're doing civil disobedience. Just because the prison system thinks you should spend a year in jail for nonviolent protest, that doesn't mean we need to enable them and put good activists behind bars. Thanks and keep up the good work.

Report from NYC - I'm NOT in jail!

Santa Cruz, CA, 01.09.2004 19:50

On August 31, nearly 1000 people were nabbed by the NYPD during widespread direct actions around New York City. (A number of medics over the past few days have been singled out and arrested). The mainstream coverage describes these protests and arrests as "confrontational" and "scuffles," etc, but protesters held their composure and kept to their well-organized plans, despite aggressive police tactics that included orange plastic fencing to keep protesters penned in, and "snatch squads" that targetted individuals standing in the middle of otherwise peaceful crowds. Actions I witnessed included a "shut up-a-thon" in front of fox news headquarters (there were over a thousand chanting "shut the fox up"), a road blockade by comrades from the bay area, a die-in by members of the war-resisters league, a street party near union square, and lots of arrests. It felt like spontaneous eruptions all over the city, the grassroots pushing up through the concrete at every park and major intersection, strategically non-violent and with powerful messages against the war in iraq, the corporate agenda of the bush administration, and the lies propogated by the corporate media. more updates: [ Are You A Peaceful Police Officer?

AIDS Activists Strike Inside the Garden

NYC, 01.09.2004 17:11

The activist group that staged the first protest of the Republican National Convention by “telling the naked truth,” has moved the issue of the Bush global AIDS policy to the forefront once again today. Members of the group ACT UP have just now dramatically disrupted the speech of White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card to the Youth Convention at the Republican National Convention (RNC). The activists stripped off their outer shirts to reveal t-shirts emblazoned with “Bush lies. Stop Aids. Drop the debt now.” Chanting the same message and blowing whistles, the activists succeeded in disrupting Card a minute into his speech. Many of today’s participants were part of the group who “bared all” in front of Madison Square Garden last Thursday pressing for changes in the Bush Administration’s AIDS policies. The activists were taken away by security.
