mandrake root

Is it illigal to videotape the pigs? Have you (the pclf) persued getting a lawyer, and fighting the charges? What exactly did they charge you with?

more info? 16.Jan.2005 17:58


can you elaborate on who else is speaking, live music? videos?

It is legal 16.Jan.2005 19:20


As long as you are on public property and are not "interfering" with any police business. I'm sure there are other stipulations but accountability of a rogue police department is a fundemental need for all of our interests. The Portland Police Department is out of control and with out accountability and not sufficient oversight for those who they are SUPPOSED to serve. Thank you PCLF for your work and helping to shift the power back toward the people.

Speakers, and videos 18.Jan.2005 06:43



So speakers will include Rochelle Hart expressing her poetry. Video footage from the Guerilla News Network, Britney a local folk musician (recently preformed at the riot folk events.) Dyanna Gwinn expressing her poetry, Unconstitutional (a video about the US governments violation of civil liberties,) We hope that the PCLF will talk some about thier group and what happened to them (maybee field some questions?) This is a rough outline of what's gonna be going on at the event. Hope to see you there!

The event went off great! 19.Jan.2005 06:47
