Despite this attempt of intimidation and provocation by the police the crowd showed great restraint and no incidences have been reported.

Denial of Clemency for Williams Cites Support for Class-War Prisoners (tags)
California Governor Arnold "The Terminator" Schwarzenegger's denial of "Tookie" Williams' clemency petition is an appalling document, showing not only Scwarzenegger's moral cowardice in hiding behind the jury's decision, (which the bourgeois press is emphasizing) but also that he is an extreme right-wing apologist for the frame-up trials and long incarcerations of political prisoners around the globe, from Nelson Mandela to Mumia Abu-Jamal.
Read Governor Schwarzenegger's Statement (tags)
The dedication of Williams’ book “Life in Prison” casts significant doubt on his personal redemption. This book was published in 1998, several years after Williams’ claimed redemptive experience. Specifically, the book is dedicated to “Nelson Mandela, Angela Davis, Malcolm X, Assata Shakur, Geronimo Ji Jaga Pratt, Ramona Africa, John Africa, Leonard Peltier, Dhoruba Al-Mujahid, George Jackson, Mumia Abu-Jamal, and the countless other men, women, and youths who have to endure the hellish oppression of living behind bars.” The mix of individuals on this list is curious. Most have violent pasts and some have been convicted of committing heinous murders, including the killing of law enforcement.

U.S. removed Aristide at gunpoint! (tags)
In the photographs an invading U.S. Marine stands guard at Port-au-Prince's airport, Haiti, on March 1, 2004, and thugs from the so-called "Haitian National Revolutionary Liberation Front" patrol the streets of Port-au-Prince. (note... the "rebels" who staged the coup against the democratically elected government are wearing U.S. Army uniforms and carry U.S. Army M-16 machine guns). Hundreds of US Marines have arrived in Haiti to secure their control over the island nation after U.S. troops forcibly removed the elected President Jean-Bertrand Aristide at gunpoint. Congressmember Maxine Waters received a phone call from the kidnapped President of Haiti, who told her that he did NOT resign and had been abducted by the United States in the commission of a coup. The U.S. occupation troops have secured key sites... including the Presidential Palace. Aristide's private residence has been sacked and looted. The corporate press remains silent... preferring instead the U.S. State Department lie that Aristide has "resigned."

Now a former worker in Diebold's Georgia warehouse says the company installed patches on its machines before the state's 2002 gubernatorial election that were never certified by independent testing authorities or cleared with Georgia election officials. If the charges are true, Diebold could be in violation of federal and state election-certification rules. The charges also raise questions about the integrity of the Georgia election results and any other election that uses patched Diebold systems that have not been re-certified.
