Democratic Party delegates speaking out to defend the "Everything For Everyone" march when it gets dismantled by police. Hilarious.
Dressing up protest marches with ultra-radical sounding theory looks embarrassing next to what actually happened, huh?
Well, this thing seems to have turned out even worse than I assumed it would. Fancy language does not make a riot. Dressing up convention protests with ultra-radical sounding theory looks embarrassing next to what actually happened in the streets.
"we will manifest ourselves not as a focus group but as a force"
A "force" that was toyed with and arrested by police, then easily redefined by liberals and leftists. This "anti-capitalist force" becomes, so quickly, a group of 'non-violent protesters' picked apart by cops.
Did y'all really think it would turn out any other way?
I don't think it will happen, but maybe people will reflect on the stupid trajectory of actions like this and move on to something else more creative and critical. Develop radical theory and practice that acknowledges scale and effect, that isn't just hollow sloganeering and voluntarism.
why are you ignoring the arrest of Carlo Garcia?
White privilege again?
After viewing the rooftop video of the Convention Park police action, it became clear that they were, with awesome calculation, cherry picking the fruits of their surveillance.
In '67 et seq., there was always an intelligence that outthought the police: that was so obviously more intelligent that it seemed to work magic. They finally went underground but remained heroic.
We shouldn't see them now. But do we see their works?
Yah, I know this isn't France, or Heiligendamn, but ...?
I am asking! I don't see it. I see we're acting out with--virtually--as much futility as the Hillary die hards.
It was the event that informed our resistance and global consciousness, but we've come so much farther since both in the structural horror of repression and in the mechanics of human evolution and resistance.
Now there is a woven global reisistance to America, capitalism, the entire Society of the Spectacle and it's psychiatric apparatus.
The global romance of human freedom is now!
I do have a strong sense of irony. Consider however that I did not advocate that the police silence the protest by the fundamentalists I advocated them protecting both groups by putting officers between the two groups to prevent trouble. These Fundamentalist came to cause trouble there intent was not speech but provocation. This is ok but when it happens people need to be protected. If the fundamentalist where white supremacists and the crowd black I bet the police would have formed a line between to two groups to keep the peace. The officers would not be snickering at the taints of the supremest comments either. The fact is how can we have the freedom to decent when the people who protect that right for us all do not act responsibly?
when have we ever trusted the pigs. And what happened to all the people .. gimme a break. the methheads with the rifles and the huinter at the Grand Hyatt were more newsworthy than this.
If I remember right, the cops said the same thing about the Rodney King video.
Funny how they try to get people to believe that a plain and clear video doesn't really represent what happened.
What part about some cop violently attacking a woman who clearly poses no physical danger to the cop is hard to understand?
Security culture is really nothing more than the realization that what was once "legal", is not anymore, and the proper steps must be taken to ensure that the next stage is set. I can pretty much guess that the next stage is set, I hope it hits the capitalist system where it hurts the most, image and wallets.
Screw peace, change is violent.
You have just given, YES GIVEN, the right wing a massive propoganda victory.
Fox News went to the rally with the intent to make you look like intolerant political extremists in the eyes of mainstream Americans.
When the cameras were on you, you had an opportunity to reach out to regular Americans, who the vast majority of which do not give half a shit about your "radical direct action" and your "solidarity networks" and such, and present yourselves and intelligent, compassionate people.
You not only did NOT do any of that. You walked into, no, embraced with open-arms the Fox News trap!
she was interviewed by someone immediately after it happened within earshot of the cops, including the officer that hit her. the cops started talking amongst themselves and before you knew it, she was under arrest.
It is standard procedure for police to separate two antagonistic groups in order to prevent such conduct as occurred here.
The police are poorly trained. I hope those involved will follow up with a protest over inappropriate police conduct or, if necessary, a law suit.
just because an idea doesn't have "mass support" is not an argument against its' legitimacy.
all you're doing is reinforcing that stereotype of anarchists as "rich, white suburbanites."
all ideas start out as "fringe movements". Go read some actual history of this country, and you'll find that anarchists have been active from the very beginnings of industrialization.
you obviously have no thought-out beliefs of your own, or else your just parroting what Glenn Beck and Fox News are telling you.
Your words will never stop the only idea that has enough power to unite all people on Earth, not just "americans."
So go back to your rush limbaugh and bible study and keep your nose out of other people's business.
Reposts to corporate media websites should not be featured. it's OK to have reposts with links on the newswire but to not to feature on the front page.
Is this Indymedia or what? The majority of media on this site should be from independent and non-corporate sources. That's why they call it Indymedia. If I want news from rockymountainnews then I will go to their web site.
Please do not link to corporate media web sites! They get the story wrong. They distort the message.
Q: How many links to Indymedia does rockymountainnews have on their site?
I'm curious, is there a particular reason for using indybay for videos (as opposed to any other indymedia site)?
I'd also like to hear about how the process of posting videos on indymedia (in general) compares with using a commercial site like youtube. I haven't put many videos online, but i hope to start.
what the hell is free speech?
There doesn't seem to be a clear message getting out about what the protesters in Denver want.
Do you want to smash the state?
Are you against abortion-rights?
Are you against Obama's proposal for green jobs?
Why exactly are you protesting Democrats?
Fighting cops is fun, but why? What are you demands?
Users need to be able to upload many images. Please fix the code.
So what are these protesters calling for?
Are they against the Democrats support for Roe?
Are they against plans for Green Energy investments.
Why protest agains Obama, who would be the most progressive president in decades?

THE COLD WAR IS ALIVE AND WELL, THANKS TO THE FBI/CIA TORTURERS, ASSASSINS AND TERRORISTS GLOBALLY.
The idea that the USA be allowed to rule the peole of the world is a fantasy embrased by the Illuminati and their foolish followers. All nations now recognize that the fbi and the cia have ruined any hope for world peace as long as the homicidal agents of the United States government roam the streets and the outer spaces. All persons who illuminate the corruption and the criminality of the torturers and assassins of the USA are now credited with the resurrection of the balance of powers in the world through the establishment of the new COLD WAR. Conflict between people and nations, as represented in the COLD WAR serves an irreplaceable function in global politics until the fbi/cia and their supporters are destroyed, period. Note the following message that I have sent to corrupt police agenices, fbi, cia, US Congress and others regarding the global serial killers created and trained in the USA:
To Chiefs Of Police and all law enforcement personnel in the USA:
Reign in your serial killer police, or I will do it for you.
AMERICANS EMBRACE THEIR FBI/CIA/POLICE SERIAL KILLER PROTECTORS for now, but in the longer term this unhealthy state of affairs must be reversed.
The serial killers (sks) of the fbi and the cia whom I have described in my reports operate with the implied consent of all branches of the US government and of the people. The USA produces over a half of all serial killers on earth, and when all the facts are made public the USA will be credited with creating maybe 80% of the world's serial killers.Some sks are born psychopathic; others are made deranged by the government,or by social circumstance. In the case of the fbi their dirty little secret of protecting their sks from outside scrutiny now comes to a halt with my reports.
As the fbi agents and operatives stalk, assault and torture their Target, they often send messages to the Target and record his responses on wireless surveillance technology. The fbi and the cia also record the forced suicide of the Target for the benefit of the Senate Intelligence Committee of Congress, lest any doubt may arise as to the casue of death.
Further, the depths of depravity to which the fbi/cia stoop in their assassinations of Targets are the more horrendous as these homicidal groups sometimes bring about the death of the Target by causes that appear to be natural. See for example my reports on biological, chemical and viral assaults on my person; also consider the evidence that the fbi created the * kidney stone in my body and watched (and recorded) me collapse in agonizing pain from the effects of the blocked tube wherein the stone was lodged.
Other high tech gadgetries used by the intel services to cause stroke, heart attack, or similar life threatening condition are the directed energy weaponry with their invisible bullets which deliver severe pain and a variety of disturbing symptoms. As I have shown in my reports all of this activity is used in concert with the home and car surveillance, invasions and strategic tamperings therein (with concurrent messagings to the Target) and conditioned response assaults on the Target to attempt to secure his submission to the mind games. In many cases these tricks and devices ultimately cause the death of the Target as the fbi sks watch and record; afterwards the assassins move on to another Target whereupon the fbi thugs and their operatives repeat the series of similar assaults on the new Target to cause his death by similar means.
The minds of the fbi/cia sks are thus no different in their infirmity from the minds of sks presented in the modern popular history books and movies; the fbi/cia's methods of killing and torturing the Targets are also similar to other sks in public records in that the sks often play, or toy with the Target prior to his actual demise; the killers also leave messages or notices that the sks were in the home or car of the target, so that he may worry about the next assault.
The sks of the USA's government are honored by the community at large and they often enjoy presitigious social standing in the respective towns and perhaps even attend church, PTA, etc. The government comes to rely on the sks to remove any activist who might pose a theoretical threat to the power of the courts, the congress,or other corrupt government agencies which train and use the sks. I have known several sks during and after my service in government. One such homicidal psychopath was in the Tampa , Florida fbi office; others were in Chicago and New York fbi offices. All such creatures enjoyed favorite standing in the office, as they were used to murder those subjects who the fbi headquarters considered dead men walking.
I also personally knew a Dallas, Texas, police detective who admitted killing in cold blood five subjects by using their bodies as Target practice. One such victim of the same cop was known to me because I read his file when I was a private investigator. He was a known drug dealer who in the past had owned a hand gun; therefore he was considered "armed and dangerous"; this same man was non violent, was not armed on the day of the killing, and had retained the services of an attorney because he knew that the DA had an arrest warrant on him and that he would soon be arrested. The police detective, however, was not concerned with humane or legal treatment of this drug dealer; the cop shot the Target dead and continued firing about 30 (thirty) rounds in the body as it lay on the street.
The fbi and the cia have created a kind of institutional sk school at the fbi national academy where all graduates (including fbi and police personnel) are indoctrinated as sks or sk facilitators. Note in my previous reports that many doctors and dentists (as well as politicians ) are also sk facilitators as they actively help torment the Targets as I have documented.
Thus the world should accept the reality that the people embrace serial killers to protect the people; this state of affairs is untenable and must be reversed.

The above report is repeatedly hacked by the fbi/cia.
For Links not yet hacked see:
as the person who wrote this, let me say that all the general information i included in this analysis is widely available on the web, including nornc.org, and has been widely disseminated for almost a year now. None of that info is new to anyone.
I hope you have a strong sense of irony, because this article is full of it.
whatever happened to grassroots movements? please tell us all of your plans over the internet, but expect someone else to fulfill them, that way when they get caught you can be laughing from the sidelines. learn something about security culture and clandestinity.
We are a group of outcasts of society, you may get the image of scandinavia as a haven for radical thoughs, but in reality it is very wrong, and much worse than what any of us would have imagined before our eyes were opened by the first contact.
We are great followers now, for we know now what the scandinavian government really is. You would not believe us if we told you.
What I am asking of you is to tell us any advice on how to block these centers over here. The centers are all controlled by the government and have been surrounded by barbed wire fences, many centers are many kilometers in diameter, and the fences stretch for many tens of kilomieers.
How effective are these media blocking dishes if used in a wooded area and from distansesgreater than 3 kilometers from the centers themselves, we dare not go any closer for fear of beeing exposed to the harmfull toxins people say have been placed all around the centers to keep "curious members of society" as they call us.
It is not easy living here, and many scandinavians are not yet ready to open their eyes. But for your efforts we thank you.
And a last question, our government are trying to artificially heighten orices of aliminium, they claim that stocks are running low, but my cousin works at an aliminium plant and he sais production has never been greater than it is at precent time.
It is clear to us that we are beeing lied to, but we must face the reality that aliminium may soon be off the scandinavian markets for good.
What other materials will be able to block these centers? Are there any such materials known today?
Your help and continued inspiration is a sourse for us all, we thank you again, and hope you will be able to answer our questions.
The long night is soon to be over.
