35,000 people sign letter protesting arrest of US journalist

3 Sep

The uproar surrounding the arrest of Amy Goodman and other journalists in Minneapolis continues to grow.  Now over 35,000 people have reportedly signed a petition demanding an end to media intimidation. 

Police in St. Paul arrested several journalists yesterday, including Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman and an AP photographer as they were covering protests of the Republican National Convention. And earlier this weekend, police raided a meeting of the video journalists’ group I-Witness with firearms drawn to arrest independent media, bloggers and videomakers.

Fill out the form below to demand that press intimidation cease immediately and that all charges be dropped. Your message will be delivered to:

  • St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman
  • Ramsey County Attorney Susan Gaertner
  • St. Paul City Attorney John Choi
  • Host Committee of the Republican National Convention

The letter is here.
