actions & protests

Going back to A16 in 2000

I've been proud that DC IMC has kept a backup of all its posting during the A16 protest. Hat's off to Eddie down at DC IMC. This page documents so much of what happened during that protest- or was it a police riot? Who knew. There is much to be learned from the past.
This is why I say someone needs to be documenting what has happened. There was someone here who did criticize us for always looking ahead and never really going to the trouble to document what has already happened. In issues like addressing the uninitiated, as in people who've never been gassed, chased, arrested and more, giving people a story to tell that even the average sheep can understand is a good way to break up our isolation.

Who knows? Even a liberal some day might love us?
