Documenting the Police State

by Kevin Prichard & Shonagh Adelman Saturday, Aug. 19, 2000 at 10:09 AM

This article presents a chronology of DNC 2000 legal actions by protesters, and actions by police and state against protesters, as sets of links to articles. Includes excellent background information on U.S. Federal plans for handling non-violent protesters, as well as thorough analysis of police tactics.

Compiled and Commented by Kevin Prichard & Shonagh Adelman

As compared with the Seattle WTO, D.C. IMF/World Bank, and Philadelphia RNC protests, the DNC protesters had legal guns providing preemptive action against police behavior.
