Title: Stew Albert, Jeff Jones at Laughing Horse
Date: 2004.05.24 10:29
Description: Stew Albert read from his new memoir "Who the Hell is Stew Albert" Saturday night at Laughing Horse Books. While the event was rather sparsely attended,it was fascinating to hear Albert answer questions about the state of the 'movement' today as compared to his heyday. Also in the audience was former SDS leader and Weatherman, Jeff Jones. It was somewhat mind-blowing to chat with Jones for awhile after the reading was over. Albert, not surprisingly, was quite whimsical. He joked about being followed by the F.B.I. through New York City in the early 70s and for vegans to forgive his fondness for "good pastrami". He was dead-serious, however, in his condemnation of the "near facist" regime of BushCo. His memoir is a nice first hand account of one of the iconic figure of the 60s counter-culture.

Description: Ahh, PDX, do you know how much I miss your spring tulips? What a good spring nest is Portland. May all of you greet each other with flowers, smiles, bare bike legs, vegan chocolates.

Title: A report from the October 22nd march
Date: 2003.10.25 12:14
Description: I arrived at the South Park by Salmon Street at about 3:45. Michael D. and company were just setting up tables and a couple of speakers. As I was I walking up the steps. Michael was talking to Commander Sizer, and Officer Meyers. I sat down to wait. It was raining slightly. Not too many people were around yet. I was talking to a friend as people began to arrive. The police began to accumulate too; first it was just Sizer, Meyers, and a bicycle cop. More black clad people began to arrive. The rain increased. The police accumulated. By 4:10 PM there were about 50 black clad citizens waiting. I saw mounted police, bycycle police and the truck with the robocops swung by once.
Michael introduced the first speaker, I didn't catch his name. He taunted the police, making remarks about "Good cop, bad cop." He spoke of his problems with police overreaction during the august 21st visit By George II, and how he was arrested by police in a related protest later that month. He joked about how a Christian fundamentalist had tried to convince him that Christians needed to "form and alliance" with anarchists. [ Read more... ]

Poem about oct22 anti police brutality march by Stew Albert
Speaking again
at a Portland rally
against police brutality
in the wind and rain
I was the only one
to mention George Bush

last year the crowd was twice the size
no cops were present
we marched in the street
slightly disrupted traffic
and no fuzz.
It was an inexpensive day
for taxpayers and civil libertarians

what a difference
a Bush year makes
now we have
swaggering cops
arms folded leaning on trees broadcasting strutting messages
of control freak power
when the march came
so did the posse
