Interview with portand imcista who went to WTO-Cancun
On Thursday, September 18, 2003 Portland Indymedia Web Radio did a live interview with m2, a portland imcista, who was in Cancun for the anti-WTO actions. In the interview, he relates his first-hand experiences of the actions, the community, the Cancun Indymedia Center (Centro de Medios Independientes), and the mythical activist "hurricane" that blew through Cancun. This a very positive and informational talk that you shouldn't miss. Listen to the Interview

INFERNAL NOISE BRIGADE, sentencing this Friday!
One of the members of the Infernal Noise Brigade was convicted in our recent trial in Portland. Jenna Barrett's sentencing is this Friday at the Multanomah County Courthouse. Due to the very recent trial and our attendance of the actions in Cancun against the WTO, very few Brigadeer's will be able to be there to support her in person. Although we greatly apprectiate the attendance by the few PDX'ers who were there for the trial, we were somewhat disappointed by the lack of turnout by Portland's community. Especially, as we supposedly have a large fan base/support for what we do down there. I fear that the band's decisions as to whether or not to play future events in PDX will be affected by the apparent lack of support for us down there. Please turn that opinion and our string of bad experiences in your fine city around by coming out to show your support!
thanks,
Karl AKA Dok
