Police/State Violence Against a Woman at the RNC/St. Paul

The footage in this clip is from the documentary, “Ground Noise and Static” Free Speech Under Attack at the RNC If it wasn’t for citizen videographers, abuses of power such as documented in this footage would never come to light. The police abuse of power at the RNC also extended to targeting the independent media. Two Pepperspray Production Video Collective members were arrested in St. Paul, as was Amy Goodman of “Democracy Now!” www.democracynow.org The documentary “Ground Noise And Static” can be viewed at submedia TV submedia.tv About the documentary GROUND NOISE AND STATIC: In November, one or the other of the corporate candidates will win, and then, as always, it will be what the people do, not the politicians, that counts. A video report on the protests that occurred in connection with the Democrat and Republican National Conventions, Ground Noise & Static is a manifesto. We went to Denver and St. Paul to take the pulse of the movement. Corporate media would cover the platitudes and posturing of the politicians, we were interested in something else, a story hidden in plain sight, captured in the now-classic street chant, This is what democracy looks like. Ground Noise & Static is a joint effort of Franklin López of submedia.TV and pepperspray Productions. It is the direct result of a wonderful collaboration with many indymedia-style activists and journalists who all pitched in for the common good and success of their various efforts to tell their Unconventional stories.
