Twin Cities Indymedia reports: Amy Goodman has now been released. Many others, including journalists, are still being held.

From the website:

Democracy Now! is a national, daily, independent, award-winning news program hosted by journalists Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez. Pioneering the largest public media collaboration in the U.S., Democracy Now! is broadcast on Pacifica, NPR, community, and college radio stations; on public access, PBS, satellite television (DISH network: Free Speech TV ch. 9415 and Link TV ch. 9410; DIRECTV: Link TV ch. 375); and on the internet. DN!’s podcast is one of the most popular on the web.

What the F*&#K is happening!?

I realize this will come off as naive to many out there in indy media land but I can't believe everything that's going down in St. Paul. I was appalled by the weekend preRNC raids but today's actions by the state are incredibly obscene and inexcusable. I've been glued to indy media sources all day. I feel anxious and terrified just sitting at home watching and I'm hundreds of miles away from this craziness.
