An Open Letter on Behalf of Amy Goodman

Katrina vanden Heuvel blogs:

We join with you in condemning the arrest and harassment of Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman and members of her crew on the first day of the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota. These arrests were a transparent attempt to intimidate journalists and an assault on our constitution.

Goodman was arrested for simply questioning police about the unlawful detention of producers Sharif Abdel Kouddous and Nicole Salazar who were covering street demonstrations in St. Paul. All three were roughly handled.

    Typical of “The Nation” to only make a support statement, for the easiest prisoner to support.

    About 600 people were arrested.

    I live in Minneapolis, and saw the armed camp, with my own eyes.

    The police response is a threat to the mainstream movement, not only anarchists.

    Check out my blog.
