G-8 in Georgia: Model for repression at Democratic and Republican party conventions is martial law, negating the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 forbidding federal troops from deployment in domestic policing

Chris Powers of Rochester, NY | The Summit of the Group of Eight (G-8), the US and other wealthy “democracies,” networked from June 8-10 in Georgia to advance their free market plans while a state of emergency led to the suspension of basic constitutional rights. Not the “Miami model” of repression but the logical next step of domestic repression. more...  1 Comments

Hey Hey, Ho Ho, Those Old Protest Tactics Have to Go: NYTimes on RNC Organizing

By RANDAL C. ARCHIBOLDRandal C. Archibold (NYT) | When protesters descend on the Republican convention this summer, Christian Herold will be there with bells on. Then, he will ring them. Mr. Herold has ordered hundreds of one-inch, gold-plated bells - the kind that could easily adorn a Christmas tree - that he plans to distribute to any takers. He will call participants in his Ring Out project to surround ground zero - as close as they can - and raise a cacophony to "ring out the Republicans" shortly before the convention opens on Aug. 30. more...  6 Comments

New Paltz Mayor Cleared of Criminal Charges for Gay Marriage; Injunction Remains

Mike Hill, AP; Mark Dunlea, HM IMC | On Thursday, a town judge dismmissed criminal charges against New Paltz Mayor Jason West (Green Party) for marrying gay couples. However, earlier this week another local judge issued a permanent injunction against West performing any more same-sex marriages; West plans to appeal. And a Democratic member of the Town Board, back by a national law firm opposed to gay rights, plans legal action to remove West from office. West's attorney responded to Thursday's decision by stating: "The court has ruled that same-sex couples have not just some of the same rights, and a modicum of legal protection from blatant discrimination, but full equality in the eyes of the law. It is the first time that any court in this state has declared that same-sex couples have the same rights, same status, and same dignity as every other citizen. If history is any guide, this is the beginning of an unstoppable trend in New York." more...  0 Comments
