Banner Drop Activists Face 25 Years in Prison

Gotham Gazette reports: "Police officers arrested 21 people at protest related to the Republican National Convention yesterday, over three times the total number of people arrested during the Democratic convention last month. Arrests took place on Eighth Avenue near Madison Square Garden, where naked AIDS activists blocked traffic; in Union Square, where demonstrators didn't heed calls to stop using a bullhorn; and at the Plaza hotel, where four people rappelled from the roof to hang an enormous anti-George W. Bush banner. The four were charged with assault and face twenty-five years in prison after a police officer on the scene fell through a skylight, cutting himself badly enough to require 38 stitches."

» Protesting what, exactly? from dudemasicus
So the protests begin in New York. We had a couple of naked people in the middle of the street, and some folks with a backwards sign jump off the Plaza hotel. Cool. But I have to ask the question: huh? [Read More]

ANY CHANCE OF HOSTING A RALLY IN WASHINGTON DC IN OCTOBER? If New York alone was going to be able to muster 250,000 in Central Park, then what can be done in DC? One million?

If the Central Park event is going to be denied a permit, then what about Washington DC sometime in the beginning or mid October, no later though because of the logistics for those of us that would want to get back home and vote.

Geeze, Dan...
I guess you haven't heard about the *MILLION WORKER MARCH*, huh? http://www.millionworkermarch.org/

One of the *main* messages of today's, Sunday's & Monday's rallies -- and beyond -- should be:
SEE YOU IN WASHINGTON IN OCTOBER FOR THE MILLION WORKER MARCH!

I wonder if this important message even got on some of the anti-RNC organizer's agendas...
It also requires a SLOGAN for that matter.

What?

Some cop was stupid enough to hurt himself, so these guys can go to jail for 25 years?

I hope John Kerry grants them a Presidential pardon.

Maybe if the NY Cops weren't so pre-occupied about going on strike, and spent more time in the gym, this wouldn't have happened.

Those cops are such FASCISTS -- blaming our 1st Amendment exercises for their STUPID criminal response and resulting band-aid injuries. They are part of this CRIMINAL corporate white-male domination of the poor, people of color and women. The sooner we take back power, the better.

The revelation that we have to risk our rights and freedoms in artistic merit in order to make a political statement and voice our deccisions seems to represent to me that the general enlightened population of America is discontent with them state of its media and communications. So long as there are protests, we cannot consider our informaton process as "Fair and Balanced".

I get the impression that you guys are like, mad or something.

I'm for a more positive method of protesting. Mobs scare me, so I just made up my own pro kerry campaign at www.3purplehearts.com

After watching Bushes speach I wondered, just who controls the cameras. It was way to obvious the way the lens would hit the crowd and it was a very good chance the person in the close-up was a minority. Is it just me?

Posted by: bhawk | Sep 3, 2004 1:38:05 AM

FYI...the Plaza protesters even warned the cops about the instability of the roof. The cop pursued them anyway. So,this is their fault....how exactly?

Posted by: Terri Willox | Sep 12, 2004 2:04:26 AM

I agree 100%. Cops can sometimes have that little "chip" on their shoulder. It would agree it is the cop's fault.
