Interview with Wendy Binion, Portland Indymedia, 9/5/08: video
Wendy Binion, who works with Portland Indymedia, was snatched from Mears Park in St. Paul during the rally prior to the March for Our Lives on September 2nd, 2008. She was surrounded by riot cops in the street and was taken away to a special facility for processing. Her detainment is part of a definite pattern by authorities during the RNC to disrupt and intimidate independent media journalists who were covering the demonstrators' perspective from the streets of St. Paul.
Richard and Fay discuss a chaotic street battle they witnessed in downtown St. Paul and reflect on their general impression of events over the past week and where they think direct resistance might be headed.
