Subject: [Revolutionary_Diary] Bush protesters attacked !!!



23 Aug 2002
Portland 1, Bush 0

At least 3000 people gathered in Portland today to protest pResident George Bush. Bush was visiting the state to spread lies about forest health and shake down the local ruling class to raise bribe money for regional crime lord Senator Gordon Smith, who is the Republican incumbent for U.S. Senate. The day of dissent started with a tree-sit in a downtown park where thousands gathered in the afternoon. Hundreds of police officers, including many in full riot gear, staked out a nine square block area around the Hilton Hotel where the fundraiser was happening. Protesters had free reign throughout the rest of downtown where they took the streets and blocked intersections. In the late afternoon, police declared a state of emergency to the glee of the protesters, and threatened to arrest anyone who did not disperse. Police then turned violent, shot people with rubber bullets and peppersprayed many others, including a 10 month old baby [ story: 1 | 2 ].

When the sun set people danced in the street and continued to face off police. The general feeling among participants was that it had been a great day. Corporate media accounts, unsurprisingly, gave different, often highly inaccurate, accounts [ 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 ]. Watch the people's exciting video account!
