Jennifer Whitney, a Portland-based activist, writer, and musician, has been detained during protests in New York City, in Union Square. She is a journalist for Narco News, Indymedia, an editor of the book We Are Everywhere, and a founding member of the Infernal Noise Brigade. Narco News reports on her detention, along with 2 other of their reporters and the rest of the INB. They give details and discuss the unconstitutional and illegal nature of the police action, and demand their release. |
The latest news, posted to the NYC IMC site by Al Giordano of Narco News, states that he has spoken with Jennifer via a smuggled-in cell phone:
She is alive, she is well, she has not been poisoned by industrial toxins (like some, reportedly, yesterday, were), she has not been beaten (like others were), she is with most members of the musical group known as Infernal Noise Brigade, also detained, who are also well, and she is of good cheer. And she thanks all the members of the Narco News Team who have worked overtime tonight to locate and protect our own. In a few hours, the jailbreak begins. Here, we leave no Authentic Journalist behind.
