Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign Press Conference, 9/4/08: video (page 3 of 3)
The RNC Welcoming Committee held a joint press conference with the Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign regarding the charges announced the day before against eight Welcoming Committee members, the violent tactics of the police to suppress dissent in St. Paul and across America, and the media's role taking the word of the police without question and largely ignoring those who are denied basic resources in our society. One person who had been arrested testifies about having been tortured in the Ramsey County Sheriff's Jail.
The press conference is in its entirety here, divided into nine parts. This page includes parts seven through nine. In all, the press conference runs for about one hour and twenty minutes total.
