Join In Solidarity And Against Violation Of Free Speech In Seattle For International Day Of Solidarity Against Corporate Globalization

International Day Of Solidarity Against Corporate Globalization

Police in Seattle say they are ready for mass arrests and they have chemical agent teams in

place. The city has denied permits for Westlake Center but marchers plan to converge on that location anyway, without permits.

New Police Chief GIl Kerlikowske says that marchers without permits will be arrested. So far, three major unpermitted marches are planned.Organizers say they will practice their rights to freedom of assebly and freedom of speech at the risk of arrest. A street party is planned, despite satements made by police that demonstrators blocking traffic or sitting in the streets will be arrested, as well. The situation is tense, with discussions between police and demonstrators breaking down.

International media have converged on the city and journalists expect confrontations between police and protesters.

In addition, the Newspaper Guild is striking at the city's two major papers.

Protesters have vowed to boycott reporters from the Seattle Times and Post Intelligencer. There are plans by marchers to join the picket lines on N30.

A large crowd of citizens will be required to counter these attempts by Mayor Paul Schell and the Downtown Business Association to silence the free speech of protesters.

If you were here last year, join us for the anniversary! Tell everyone to come to the giant party in Seattle on November 30, 2000.
