Preemptive Crowd Control: Why Are Some Protesters Treated So Differently By Police

07-01-2004 18:56

Natural Graffiti: Peace Signs Mysteriously Appear on Seattle Lawns at Pre-Dawn
Why do police spray anti-war protesters with pepper spray and rubber bullets if they stray off the sidewalks into streets, but they accommodate rowdy sports fans blocking streets, with smiles? Is this difference politically driven? The police violence at the Miami FTAA protests in Nov, 2003, could easily be repeated in Boston and NYC this summer, in 2004, at the Democratic and Republican National Convention protests...

Anti-social behaviour act - important changes to the law

07-01-2004 18:52

>In the rush to get its legislation through Parliament before the end of
>the last session in November, the government was subjected to lots of

CHILLING DEJA VU: The Original Bush:Hitler Comparison from July, 2001

07-01-2004 15:49

"When this essay comparing Hitler's rise to power with Bush, and the tactics of the present GOP with the 1930s Nazis and Stalin's communist regime was first published in July, 2001, I was the recipient of a flood of hate mail and even a couple of death threats from militant rightwingers.
