Police Attack

I have just returned from Tacoma. The police responded to non violent civil disobedience in the form of passively sitting in a road with huge amounts of tears gas, pepper gas, pepper spray, bean bags, rubber bullets and pellets. It's unclear how many are injured. There has been at least one arrest (for taking a backpack in a no backpack zone). This was a MASSIVE show of police reppression. I estimate at least 20 canisters were launched.

THIS IS A CALL OUT TO ALL WHO WISH TO SEE AN END TO THIS WAR AND AN END TO POLICE REPPRESION! Please join us in Tacoma tommorrow (3/10/07) at 4:00 at the federal building for a continuing NON VIOLENT but non complicit protest.
