Weblog Commenting by HaloScan.com



"How important was last year's anti-WTO demonstration in Seattle? It may have been the most important single demonstration in the history of the United States."

"One year ago" by Geov Parrish




"Seattle's WTO debacle in which police not only denied constitutional rights to thousands of peaceful citizens, but indiscriminately bludgeoned, gassed, pepper-sprayed, kicked, cursed and rubbershot legal protesters, on-duty journalists, aid workers and innocent bystanders is merely one of the larger, more public examples of police abuse. Racial profiling, theft, extortion, falsifying evidence, destroying evidence, intimidation, perjury, "blue wall" coverups, inquest whitewashes, brutality, torture and the unnecessary taking of human life, NYC, LA, Seattle . . . I shouldn't need to cite specific examples. It's all been in the news.



"Now, an honest, civic-minded, benevolent police force can provide an invaluable public service. Society needs it. However, when the policeman acts the arrogant master rather than the respectful servant, society is betrayed and freedom obliterated. And when city or county officials lack the courage to stand up to powerful law-enforcement unions, or to enlighten a public that has been both scared yellow by fearmongers and made jaded by movies glorifying rogue cops, we, all of us, are in deep trouble.



"Whether or not you completely share my concern that an over-regulated America may be inching in the direction of a corporate police state and that King County and Seattle are in the vanguard of that sorry movement still, you surely recognize that, from Waco to WTO, many civil liberties have been violently compromised of late, and that action must be taken to rescue our precious constitutional protections."--Tom Robbins

Last Year's WTO-Protestor Arrestees Respond:


------------------

For Immediate Release


WTO Arrestees Condemn Police Preparations for N30 Anniversary



Last year at the WTO protests in Seattle, Mayor Schell and the city of Seattle arrested over 600 people whose only "crime" was their protest of the WTO in an alleged "No Protest" zone. In response to such blatant civil rights violations, a class action has been filed against the City of Seattle in the name of all those arrested in the "No-Protest "zones. Yet the city has failed to learn from its mistakes. Last week Maud Daudon, deputy mayor of Seattle, implied that all those exercising their constitutional right of free speech at this year's N30 anniversary celebration, would be arrested if they do not have the proper permit. (Seattle P-I, 11/16/2000, front page)


The undersigned WTO-Protest arrestees and the legal team representing them in the class action suit condemn these statements. Legal team member Ben S. declares, "This type of behavior of using mass arrests as crowd control is clearly illegal. This is why we are filing a class action suit based on last year's repressive tactics." Ben continues, "I wonder if the mayor and city truly understand the implications of denying the guaranteed rights of free speech and assembly, both in moral and financial terms."


"The last time I checked, the US Constitution read that 'Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech,'" espouses WTO-protest arrestee and named plaintiff, Ken Hankin. "Last year we came together in many ways as a movement opposed to corporate globalization as we successfully protested the WTO ministerial. This year we are going to celebrate in the same streets by holding events such as marches and vegetarian potlucks; we will be peaceful AGAIN, and urge the police to show respect for our basic constitutional rights."


The large scale protests against corporate globalization were sparked in Seattle and continued at the IMF / World Bank meetings in Washington D.C., and Prague, as well as many other economic conferences throughout the world. Atrocious police actions including mass arrests have unfortunately been part of this movement. The undersigned class action members urge the City of Seattle to draw connections between the repressive tendencies of corporate globalization and the repressive response by local police forces to those protesting such repressive practices. "The only way for these virulent institutions to meet, is to suspend civil rights," according to jane wto - another of the 600 wto arrestee's. "But instead of slowing us down, it reaffirms our commitment to global justice. You can blow out a candle, but you can't blow out a fire."

Dear Viewers: here is the link, once again, to my report for the Corpse on last year's WTO protests. I will be there tomorrow, as well, and look fwd to letting you all in on what I see. There have been several comments already to the effect that the turnout for these anniversary events would have been low, had it not been for the aforementioned Mayor's warning--now "people are coming out of the woodwork". Those are my kind of people. --Yrs. Humbly, 'Dr. Menlo.com'

So I walked into the Speakeasy one day about a month or so ago (I go there as much as possible when I'm around Belltown to pick me up the freshest copy of my favorite Seattle paper Eat The State!--well, 2 copies actually--one for my good friend Tom @ Beatty's Books on 3rd), and was pleasantly suprised to see myself on the back page of a local Seattle zine called Klang . . . Check out this excerpt from Klang Editor and Founder Doug Anderson's prizewinning novel 'Blonde Eyes Blue Hair'. . . . I'll let you know when #8 comes out. I hope to be in that one, too.

"Polish poster artists drew heavily upon the
violence contained in Westerns. In the films, violence helped to overcome
evil and was associated with power and control. It offered quick and simple
solutions to complex problems, providing immediate advantages. There was
little consideration for those subjected to violence. Polish posters,
however, always portray violence as a negative force, bringing with it death
and destruction. That violent actions have consequences is one of the
strongest messages to emerge from the exhibition."

BUSH 'WIN' CAUSES MAJOR AMERICAN BRAIN DRAIN

THIS JUST IN: America's Literati Are Abandoning Ship!

Upon news of the recent Presidential confirmation of George 'Dubya' Bush, tens of thousands of the most intelligent people in America are relocating north just over the Canadian border. Many are reporting accounts of direct and hostile harassment by the Bush/Cheney camp.

Explains Zaia Olinger, a 36 yr. old performance artist formerly of Greenwich Village: "Like, these 2 fat, white men in suits just came to my door and said, 'You show your private pahts one more time up there on stage, Lil 'Missy and we will stockade yer ass ta Betsy!!!'--and in exactly that tone & cadence, too . . . so I ran. You betcha."

Former San-Franciscan Web Developer Sharahn O'Malley recounted a similar tale: "Oh yea, well, these 2 fat white men in suits accosted me while I was leaving my apt. bldg and asked me about an essay I wrote in 7th grade called 'Why We Should Feed The Poor'--they stabbed their stout fingers into my Wonderbra and called me an 'effing communist faggot' . . . they then told me to leave the country or face criminal prosecution. Funk that--Vancouver, B.C. kicks Corpulent Texas ASS!!!"

Already some reports are trickling in of broken-down offices in the midwest--Bush Country--due to lack of IT staff. John Rothchild, a Republican businessman from Ohio, explains: "Well, we used to er, ask this real smart guy see about this here box here with all them little bitty things in it--you know, the box that talks to Satan--but, er, we done burned that fella on account of him being so smart and all--cuz they is usually left-handed, uh, liberal commie-fags or something . . . they eat like, rabbit food and stuff . . . so anyway all our Satan-boxes are dead . . . which is good cuz little Timmy can't see no naked pictures but uh . . . we can't like use them for business and stuff."

The mass exodus sparked by news of the Bush Presidency seems so far only to have hit the 2 coasts--which many are reporting to now resemble ghost towns . . .

years of thus in Jersey . . . one time while very young a neighborhood kid
took me down to the overpass and showed me how to throw rocks and stones at
cars. When we'd hear someone yell and hit the brakes, my young rapscallion-cohere would cry: "Let's BOOK!" . . . we did.

"...And then I watched this converge and turn into what
I believe to be the early stages of a mass movement. And
that is to me what is happening in Los Angeles this week,
and what happened in Seattle and what is going to happen in
Prague. And you see all the pockets come together. But once
there is a real movement, in some ways I think, we lose sight
of how important it is to keep communicating...
