Five people from Lawrence and Kansas City were arrested today in Denver.
They have been arrested without cause and are currently being held in
the Denver City jail. They were NOT arrested at a protest, but rather
were in front of their housing. This is a clear act of intimidation and
repression. Arrestees and three other people were questioned by the FBI.
Three were released and five are currently being held.

We need money to get them out. This tactic is being used to stretch our
resources and keep people from exercising their first amendment rights.

Here's a funny clip of an idiot FOX News reporter asking protestors stupid questions. The crowd then starts chanting, on live TV, "Fuck FOX News!" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoDsQ2VNArI

The best part about it was when the guy asked "Do you believe in freedom of speech?" And the kid goes "Yeah... go fuck yourself."

Fucking brilliant.

Was down there today but didn't see the riot gear stuff kick up. I guess I left too soon but I had to be somewhere and it was hot today.

It sounds like there is a need for a new method of organization, such that the old fashionist cliques are done away with.

Security culture is important, but all security is theatre and posturing. That the FBI could find a rag-tag group in Denver hundreds of miles from home is proof that something is amiss.

This is evidence of things to come, methinks. It may be time for the Laughing Man and his second-order simulacra.

It's not that hard for the FBI or some other police organization to track down particular anarchists. If they aren't shadowing them actively, the standard police procedure is to circulate photos and information to the local police. I wouldn't be surprised if the local cops are keeping track of local activist houses.

All of this will be less of a concern in several years when our numbers are too large for the cops to track.

We all need to do what we can to support all of he people arrested at these convention events.

Yeah, you're right that it's not hard to be found, especially when you have guys like Dave turning themselves into poster boys. lulz

Once we finish the Moore-Otsuka-Helkenberg prime number sieve and integer factorization algorithm, we will all be hundred-millionaires (because it turns out factoring large semi-primes is easy)! I made $200,000,000 in 45 seconds M.O.H.'ing down RSA! RSA is D.O.A.

Voting is direct action. Vote Obama for mass extinction, punctuated equilibrium, and the acceleration of evolutionary processes.

Is Dave paying back loans on his bail? I'll need that money at the end of the year when the markets collapse so I can buy real estate for pennies on the hundred-dollar. When everyone only has debt, cash is king.
