Police say they are ready for mass arrests and they have chemical agent teams in
place. The city has denied permits for Westlake Center but marchers plan to march to that location anyway, without permits. New Police Chief GIl Kerlikowske
says that marchers without permits will be arrested. So far, three major unpermitted marches are planned.Organizers say they will practice their rights to freedom of assebly and freedom of speech. A street party is planned, despite satements made by police that demonstrators blocking traffic or sitting in the streets will be arrested.

In addition, the Newspaper Guild is striking at the city's two major papers.
Protesters have vowed to boycott reporters from the Seattle Times and Post Intelligencer. There are plans by marchers to join the picket lines on N30.

a strong presence is required to counter these attempts by Mayor Paul Schell and the Downtown Business Association to silence the free speech of citizens.
If you were here last year, join us for the anniversary! Tell everyone to come to the giant party in Seattle on November 30, 2000.
