Bike Messenger to Use Bike To Spraypaint Anti-Bush Slogans Submitted Online

Wired | Amazing: New Yorker Joshua Kinberg is a bike messenger of a different stripe. Instead of ferrying legal papers between lawyers, he uses a homemade, wireless, bicycle-mounted dot-matrix printer to spray protest messages in the street. Kinberg will be taking his road-spraying bicycle to the Republican National Convention in New York this fall, where he'll ride around spraying slogans submitted over the Web and beamed wirelessly to the bike. more...  6 Comments

New Terror Alert: A Look at The Morning Papers

Trans-am | Thinking hard about the most recent terror alert issued by the U.S. government? Here's just a brief glance through the New York Times the day after NYC went into a state of high security:

"Much of the information that led the authorities to raise the terror alert at several large financial institutions in the New York City and Washington areas was three or four years old, intelligence and law enforcement officials said on Monday. They reported that they had not yet found concrete evidence that a terrorist plot or preparatory surveillance operations were still under way."
-- Pg. A1

"I believe that the American people would be less likely to believe that the terror alerts are not political if Tom Ridge, the homeland security secretary, had not ended his press conference on Sunday by saying, "We must understand that the kind of information available to us today is the result of the president's leadership in the war against terror." Mr. Ridge made it political at that moment."

Forbidden in the Garden

RNC Delegate | According to an online post from an RNC delegate, here are the things that RNC delegates (and presumably almost everyone else) wont be able to carry past the security perimeter: "Yesterday, I received a packet of info from the convention, which included a list of prohibited items. These are things we won't be permitted to carry within the security perimeter. Included in the list are laptop computers, camcorders, cameras with long lenses, bags for carrying cameras or binoculars, backpacks of any kind." more...  3 Comments

A Moveable Feast: An Update on the RNC Protests (August 2nd, 2004)

NYC Anarchist Grapevine | General Scene Report (This is our second update…a final one will follow) There will be a delectable smorgasbord of radical activities leading up to and during the RNC protests. We are very encouraged by the level and diversity of activities being planned for NYC this month. It is the beginning of August, and New Yorkers are steadily planning for the RNC's attempt to take the city and it turn it into a giant infomercial for their right-wing agenda. Unfortunately for them, people of all political persuasions are ready and organized to stop them. more...  10 Comments
