2005: Amy Goodman Speaks in Dublin
https://www.indymedia.ie/article/68425

'We believe it is absolutely critical to have an Independent Media offer daily grassroots, independent, unembeded, international news hour - and everyplace we broadcast we then have people responding by saying 'cover this in our community!' and that is what a grassroots international newscast sounds like.'

There's a report on wsws today about police raids on an activists centre in Minneapolis which is reminiscent of the Genoa raid . The report doesn't mention Amy Goodman's arrest ,but there's an interview with film maker ,Eileen Clancy who was present .
The cops seized anything that could be construed as a weapon including a homeless man’s bucket of piss which they termed “weaponized urine” saying that it was to be put into containers by demonstrators and thrown at police .see:

A few months ago Amy had Naomi Wolf on the show to talk about her new book "The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot" which detailed the slide towards fascism in the US. This arrest is very worrying evidence of how correct Wolf is turning out to be.

'Goodman was arrested while questioning police about the unlawful detention of Kouddous and Salazar who were arrested while they carried out their journalistic duties in covering street demonstrations at the Republican National Convention. Goodman's crime appears to have been defending her colleagues and the freedom of the press.'

Glenn Greenwald writes....

''Not only Goodman, but the entire Democracy Now team are professional journalists in the best sense of that term. Those who are simply assuming that they probably got what they deserved -- and who are, more generally, defending the Police here simply because some actual criminals engaged in destructive behavior -- are no different than those who justify anything and everything the Government does because there are some Terrorists out there and they're really violent.''

On Monday, officers in riot gear fired rubber bullets, teargas, pepper spray and concussion grenades at protesters and journalists.

280+ arrested at RNC

vid activists and cop watch team , I-WITNESS who got plenty footage 4 years ago of cop brutality were seized in a preemptive strike on the house where they were staying, cops entered with guns pulled and an m16... very very worrying.
NOW, they have had their house raided again and have been forced to leave

it seems the new ploy is have no media or witnesses while they do their dirty business.
