Twin Cities Indymedia and the Glass Bead Collective have assembled a 30 minute video documenting the surveillance, pre-emptive raids and arrests at the 2008 Republican Convention in St Paul, MN. Watch it here.
Featuring first-person accounts and footage from more than forty cameras on the streets, “Terrorizing Dissent” focuses on the story of dissent suppressed. People charged with “conspiracy to riot in furtherance of terrorism” speak out against the government’s campaign to manipulate media coverage and label civil disobedience and community organizing as terrorism.
Cut from hundreds of hours of donated footage, “Terrorizing Dissent: Election Cut” will be released under the Creative Commons / CopyLeft license.
