RNC: One Journalist's Journey

Emmanuel Goldstein is an independent journalist and Editor of 2600 who was arrested along with hundreds of others while he was covering the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York City. This is his account of that experience. I think this is a very powerful piece showing that the activities of various security forces in the city at the time were more of a political than law-enforcement variety.

I have commented on this topic before, and Mr Goldstein's account seems to only reinforce my earlier impression of what this was about,- a well-planned operation whose primary aim was discouraging and intimidating those wishing to express a dissenting opinion in a public venue.
