Protester Release Extraordinarily Slow; NLG "Wonders Why."

NYC-IMC | Reports from 100 Center Street note that protesters picked during the previous days events are being released very, very slowly. A reporter with Michigan IMC says that most protesters have been in jail for approx. 40-48 hours, since Tuesday night.

According to a representative with the National Lawyers Guild (NLG): "They're obviously holding people for over the 24 hour limt. Its now the day Bush is in town for the RNC, and we're wondering why the New York court system would contunue to hold people this long."

Mild-Mannered Labor Rally Against Bush; Central Labor Council Honors Pledge to Respect the RNC

NYC-IMC | Yesterday, after days of demonstrations and direct actions by radicals, bikers, anarchists, community groups, and ordinary New Yorkers, it was labor's turn to show its displeasure at the policies of the Bush administration.

In the morning, thousands of people formed a symbolic "unemployment line" and waved "pink slips" in the air. In the afternoon. thousands of labor activists jammed eigth avenue to rally outside of the RNC.

Nevertheless, more wide-scale labor disruption did not occur during the RNC. Indeed, it seems as if the lack of labor strife can largely be attributed to a deal struck by Bloomberg and the Central Labor Council of NYC in which unions agreed not to disrupt the convention, which runs from Aug. 30 through Sept. 2, despite Bush's overwhelmingly anti-labor policies.
