If you read this, Morgan, I'd like you to know that I was stunned by your detailed account of what you endured. I put it up on my site (see URL), and sent excerpts + the URL to thousands of people via mailing lists.
You've been on my mind all weekend. You would have been sooner had I known. But there's been so little publicity about you here ... I ran across your name on the dossier of the injured, got curious, and ran a search here at Portland's IndyMedia. It was then that I found your affidavit.
Someday, I'd like to hear more from you, including your experiences in the demonstrations, and what led you to travel all that way to a demonstration, from Oregon to Italy.
Had I the opportunity, I would have done what you did: Traveled to the G8. Never would I have expected to go through what you did. I hope you give yourself a lot of time to heal, and that you share your largely unknown story with many.
It's shocking that the only press story I found was an AP report in the Eugene, Oregon paper. The Oregonian yielded no search results. We in Washington state, therefore, had no way of knowing about you -- but now, I assure you, at least a few hundred here have your story.
