Update of Nomi's September 3rd Post: Amy Goodman Arrest


RNC Police Arrest Amy Goodman at protest on 9/1

drcorrector says,

Democracy Now's Amy Goodman, Sharif Abdel Kouddous and Nicole Salazar were arrested by the Minneapolis Police Department. Charged with conspiracy to riot.

Footage from Rick Rowley and Brandon Jourdan.


Given that the other arrest video is no longer available on YouTube, I have embedded this one here in its stead.

I don't know how long this clip will remain up and running; it seems as though our government is getting less tolerant about free speech, but we keep working at it.

The following is Ms. Goodman's 9/1 press conference after she was released from police custody:

That is one gutsy journalist. And we have the likes of Limbaught, Hannity, O'Reilly and their illk (sic) lying to the American people for 7 and 8 figure incomes. The roman empire died because its citizens stopped caring. Is this one next?

BTW, if they are looking for people with cameras, then everybody needs one. It would be interesting to see what they would do if 20,000 people showed up (ala "V is for Vendetta" with cameras.
