Interviews with I-Witness After "Anarchist Kidnapping" Police Harrassment, 9/3/08: video
I-Witness Video had a bizarre and rattling run-in with police at their office in St. Paul on Wednesday. Cops entered the building which is shared by several organizations including the National Lawyers Guild. Police claimed that they had information that hostages were being held in the building by anarchists and they wanted to look around. I-Witness Video denied police access to their space. Police jumped up to look through a transom window over the I-Witness office door. While police did not raid the office at that time, it led to I-Witness being evicted from their office space, further disrupting their documentation work at the RNC.
