From Democracy Now!
What the police look like today…
Amy Goodman and two Democracy Now producers, Sharif Abdel Kouddous and Nicole Salazar, were falsely arrested by police outside the Republican National Convention on 9/2. All three were arrested while performing their duties as journalists and reporting on demonstrations and activities occurring outside the convention.
Police are actually considering charging the journalists with felony charges (!!) so everyone is encouraged to blast the officials (email addresses provided at Democracy Now! link, above) demanding that they drop charges immediately.
Videos of two of the arrests – Amy’s and Nicole’s – are available at Democracy Now! and YouTube.
