i don't think anyone had a video 15.Aug.2002 13:24

I could be mistaken, but I don't think there was a video camera there. There were three still cameras that I know of, one of which belonged to the Mercury freelancer, and one of which I was using. The camera I use has a primitive video mode but I didn't use it that day. Everything happened so fast and I wasn't close when it started. I got a couple-three still shots that might be helpful, of one of the young women being dragged along forcibly by the police, but better photos of the same thing have been posted to indymedia already, by the holder of the third camera:

Feel free to contact me and I can put you in touch with the third photographer.
