PROTESTING BUSH IN OREGON
|23 Aug 2002|
1, Bush 0
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
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
