The Dixie Chicks made a bold move in standing against Bush and his treasonous acts, by saying they were "ashamed he was from Texas".
Be vigilent and the free thinkers will always be a step ahead.
What happens to the comments?
When masks are outlawed, only revolutionaries will wear masks!
A recent Indy disruption tactick appears to be in the form of spam offerings that parrot FOX, attempt to use foreign news sources to legitamise US policies, or attempt to bore the reader senseless.
perhaps some censorship is required on this site.
Are you still using Federal Reserve Notes? Concerned about your money and the market? So are thousands of Americans just like you, and they've found the solution: The Liberty Dollar - inflation-proof currency owned by the people, not the Federal Reserve.

Deva says he wants to see free media, I thoguht that was what Indimedia was all about.
worldwide permanent boycott, reduce the budget for the US arm industry (article 1)
If the people of the world are to be free, there comes a time when being a citizen of the world takes precedence over being a soldier of a country.
Being effective is not just about getting numbers to rallies and events:
Why I believe we should build on the connection between American Empire and this war
People, how are we going to respond when catastrophic loss of life occurs in Baghdad?
With the blatant pro-war bias of corporate media giants getting so much attention now in independent media, here's an interesting way to make your voice heard.
Mirrors are a new tool to disrupt the police state at demonstrations
Argument for banning use of pepper spray by police at peaceful demonstrations.
comment from SF indymedia in response to someone complaining about violence on the street.
The most impressive development in all this is that millions of people have come out to protest all over the world before the war has even started. Two million demonstrated in London, 2.5 million in Rome, over a million in Barcelona, over half a million in New York, a quarter of a million in San Francisco, 200,000 in Damascus-the list goes on and the mass radicalization continues apace.
Terrorism - it's not strictly for Muslims anymore.
After hearing tireless complaints from liberals about radicals and direct action, after hearing insistent pleas that protests must be law abiding, after all the perjoratives about radicals, anarchists, etc, how fucking wonderful it is to see how effective direct action really is!
Portland is Prague.

I was a peacekeeper Saturday, at the corner of 3rd & Madison, where the march route took a right turn in front of the Federal Building. I would like to respond to some previous postings about what peacekeepers were doing, perhaps referring to this intersection.
Rachel was murdered by an Israeli bulldozer driver on March 16, 2003 in Rafah. This is a communique from Rachel to her parents in February of this year. "Many people want their voices to be heard, and I think we need to use some of our privilege as internationals to get those voices heard directly in the US, rather than through the filter of well-meaning internationals such as myself. I am just beginning to learn, from what I expect to be a very intense tutelage, about the ability of people to organize against all odds, and to resist against all odds."
No more war for oil
Marching the streets and singing in the park is nice and all. Now it is time to reclaim something real. Noon in Salem, day of or day after any bombing begins, we move to take over control of the state capitol building and the chambers of congress. Full solidarity required, everyone is necessary, non-violent action and attitudes mandatory. Enough already!
During the early hours of Tuesday, March 11, 2003, our friend Sparrow, aka Carson McCann, took his own life while out in the forests that he loved and worked to defend. Memorial service details are below.
We may have some special visitors tomorrow.
Hooked on oil
Bush's argument that war is necessary to get rid of Saddam Hussein and his weapons of mass destruction is hollow and hypocritical. The Bush Administration is ready to use US weapons of mass destruction against the Iraqis including "Shock and Awe" and possibly nuclear weapons. Millions of people are responding to Code Red, White and Blue, the real threat to world peace and security that America has become.

Lets meet downtown

from the bush protest
This is an article that appeared in the Hartford Advocate today, with commentary by smirkingchimp members... here's a quote:
...the Portland event was a watershed for anti-Bush sentiment the way the Seattle protests in Nov. 1999 galvanized the anti-globalization movement... the violent overreaction of the police conveyed an unmistakable message about the lengths this administration will go to to shield itself from democracy.
Thank you KBOO and Portland Indymedia for broadcasting and covering the Bush Protest.
a different approach at protests
.f'ing read it
To presume that our lifetime has no value is to presume the legitimacy of slavery. Issuing citizens dividends directly from local treasuries is the most efficient, stable and democratic way to provide equal rights and equal responsibilities....
Excerpt from AP report in 8/25/02 Oregonian contains fabricated exaggeration of demonstrators' actions in Thursday's protest.
Don't let the bullies win. This time there's more at risk than a bloody nose.
how can we use both the positive energy and anger from thursday to move ahead and do even more? how can we remind ourselves to keep the energy up?
On Friday 8.23.02 Janie Her from the Oregonian attempted to contact the Portland IMC to discuss our coverage of and involvement in the protest. She was unable to contact anyone at the number and so called the global people. The message made its way to me and I was on it.
here's a great way to tell Tribune readers the real story
An open letter submitted to the Oregonian that accounts police brutaltity in Portland, A22.

Since Bush is here for Gordon, I thought a short recap of his career to be in order.
"We arrested people, about 2500 so far, and about an equal number who have not been so lucky. They don't value life like we value life," President Bush says at speech in downtown Portland as crowd laughs.
I'm stuck inside while all this is going down...

What's up w/ that Oregonian title: Environmental plan's scope unclear?
...no thanks to white yuppy liberals
An article from ZNET written by Michael Albert and Stephen Shalom which attack the questions about 9-11 coming from various "conspiracy theorists." In particular, the ZNET writers attack Mike Ruppert and Jared Israel. These ZNET people essentially adopt the Official American line that 9-11 was due to incompetence, not complicity or conspiracy. To me, what's interesting is the timing of the piece. This article is part of a spate of RECENT pieces coming from the "The Left" which attempt to debunk the "Conspiracy Theories"--despite the fact that Ruppert and Israel published their 9-11 work last year. Curious.
I am pleading with Michael Albert, editor of Z-Mag and Michael Ruppert, of copvcia, to sit down and reason together about our common concerns. The arguments of both share many beliefs, like the events of 911 were a crime, not an act of war, and working together will more effectively save lives and help people.
It is high time to put those radical tactics to some practical use.
