Massive Mobilization in Mormon Country

Here's an audio link to the beginning of the protest today in Salt Lake City. Though the commentator says there are 600-700 people in attendance, our sources on the ground say there are closer to 2,000. Oh, the media...

If BushCo's NEO CONs didn't already have enemies in Utah, after last night's stormtrooper raid on a bunch of kidz just trying to have a party certainly created some.

My intel says the party was busted up because it was feared that it would become an "anti-war" rally.

(begin edited story)
Reports state that at approximately 11:30pm upwards of 90 officers, many wearing full camouflage gear, gathered from Sherrif and SWAT departments in surrounding areas stormed the previously peaceful gathering dedicated to music and dance. At least 1 helicopter was dispatched, along with large tranport vehicles designated for both officers and detainees. Numerous statements from attendees indicate excessive force being exerted by many officers. Inuries including mild to severe bruises and cuts have been reported by party goers as young as age 17.

Although these "police" smashed or confiscated most of the cameras, some video footage did get out. However, most of the sites that have tried to show it have fallen under "Denial of Service" attacks today. If anyone knows of a server with this illegal raid footage, please post the link.

peace.

When the NEO CONS ran through the "AMBER ALBERT" law, one of the things that was "attached" with that magic "Congressional Paperclip" was an "anti -RAVE" clause.

Basically, if you have any type of festival and it is raided, the owners of the property can have the land seized if any "drugs" are found. Well, everyone knows since the busts of Donovan and John Lennon, THEY WILL FIND DRUGS if they want to.

This killed the festival approach to many political outreach groups like "NORML" (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) because people are too afraid to let their land be used anymore.

Seems like these "Conservatives" would say that violates a citizen's Fourth Ammendment Rights . . . yet, they just wave flags and put ribbons on their SUV's and Land Yachts.

I just hope the promoters and property owners don't end up in prison as an "example" to the rest of the country, or have their land and sound/lighting systems seized so they can be auctioned off to buy more "Cop equipment to hang out down at the police officers' station."

If my memory serves, the so-called "Rave-Act" was voted DOWN three
times when put on the floor as a stand-alone bill.

It was only by using that "magic paperclip" that it became law.
Overnight, thousands of kidz became criminals for dancing.

Of course the joke here in NC is, "Why don't fundamentalists have sex standing up?" Answer: "They don't want anyone to think they are dancing!!!"

"Rave on, it's a crazy feeling and
I know it's got me reeling when you
Say, "I love you," rave on"

peace.

I'VE BEEN EXPECTING THIS FOR A WHILE

OF COURSE WITH BUSH AND THE EVIL PNAC NEOCONS IT WILL PROBABLY BE WORSE THAN KENT STATE. I WONDER IF THE CORPORATE MEDIA WILL COVER THE MASSACRE.

Here are some sites for the Utah RAVE Raid video. These sites were still up and working when I posted this.

GO ROCKY AND THE PEACE ACTIVISTS IN SLC!!!

American civil liberties are under attack. The government controls all media. We do not have a chance. I'm moving to Canada if they will accept me. I'm 52 and not afraid of going to war, I just don't want to live here anymore. I'm ashamed of my country!

Everything you say is accurate in my opinion. I want to escape every time I hear anyone in this administration say even two words. It is the first time in my life that I have had such feelings about leaving this country.

I UNDERSTAND YOUR SENTIMENTS AND EVEN SHARE THEM TO SOME DEGREE. BUT, WE NEED ALL THE HELP WE CAN GET TO DEFEAT THE FASCISTS. I'M NOT SURE YET THAT WE CANT PREVAIL. IF THAT BECOMES EVIDENT, THEN I'LL JOIN YOU IN CANADA IF I CAN.

Their only strength is our acquiescence. Once we stand up and say NO, their whole house crumbles. It may take a while, but the beginnings are there now. Keep plugging.
