US/Canadian joint homeland security suppression of Indymedia journalists for controversial, widely opposed 2010 OlympicsBy syndicated_content on 11 Feb 2010
Reminding us of its nationalist/fascist roots, as the carefully stage-managed 2010 Olympics gets underway in Vancouver, around a billion dollars have been expended on security theater measures. While Canadian authorities want to encourage people to attend the Olympics, Canadian border and customs officials (Canadian Border Services Agencies) have teamed up to suppress the movement of Indymedia and other independent media reporters into Canada.
This is a series of clips from interviews conducted on the street by Mary and Robb of people walking through and around Downtown Columbus on April 9th 2009.
It's the newest work from these two that reside in Arawak City, Ohio (Columbus). It's a three-minute-video intro into the shape of things to come from these characters, Trin and Wombat. It comes on the heels of their previous work together with the Radio Subvertista project, earlier in 2008.
What can we do to prevent so much nonsense appearing on our Indymedia site in Columbus? Anybody else feel that this site is deteriorating as an alternative news outlet and turning off activists in the area from publishing?
Come to the Freepress and Indymedia office at 1000 E. Main Suite 102
Cynthia McKinney & Rosa Clementes will be there to disuss Election protection and grassroots Activism.
