I’m outraged by St. Paul law enforcement’s overly aggressive and violent tactics to stifle independent journalism.
Yesterday, police in St. Paul arrested several journalists, including Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman and an AP photographer as they were covering protests of the Republican National Convention. Get involved in this campaign by demanding that press intimidation cease immediately, and that all charges be dropped.

Also, this aggressive suppression of free speech is not isolated to journalists, but also to the rank and file of our citizenry. This interference with free speech should stop, and it takes voices to make it clear that not only is suppression of free speech illegal and unethical but also untenable.
