Here is an interview I found with Sherman...I'm not sure if this has been posted or not...I apologize in advance if it has...

Enjoying the hospitality of Jennifer Martin's cozy Sherman Oaks apartment, and the playful affections of her spotted dog, with its radiantly pleasant disposition, was a warm beginning for this somber occasion. Martin's twenty year old son, Sherman Martin Austin was recently unjustly convicted for posting bomb making information on his website, with intent to further an act of violence. We were there to get their side of the story; conspicuously absent from the mainstream media's reports on the case. With us that afternoon, were Sherman's longtime friend, Chantel, and his girlfriend, Lupe.

It all began on the May 1, 2001 (May Day) demonstration in Long Beach, California, which was a turning point for the activist. The police were reportedly out of control, brutalizing the crowd, arresting Austin and several others after shooting his calf with 'non-lethal' pellets that sometimes lodge deeply within the skin, cause bleeding sores, and always smart. He was approached from behind while videotaping the event when he was shot at close range, with the plastic ammunition. The incident marked Austin's first arrest and galvanized his resolve to continue his activism in the community and on behalf of his website, www.raisethefist.com. RTF, along with reporting on news items not adequately covered by conventional media sources, if at all, also was a good source of info on anarchism, police brutality, race relations, activism, and global social justice issues. As the hits to the website and the postings on the newswire swelled with activity from web surfers all over the world, so too did the monitoring from the police, intelligence and other government agencies from those regions.

HELL YEAH, garon you rock. nive avatar! i saw that on the site. and yea, i read that interview, i dunno if it was posted or not, oh well.

does anyone know of any other instances like this that need to be publicized?

im currently publishing sevveral projects, mostly just flyers to be posted around town, but im also working on a zine. with alot of anarchist/revolutionary ideas. thats why this stings me so hard.

if people are being shut down for websites, what about the printed word? could we be next? or did it start with us?

i want to start something an need an opinion. i figure since yall are enraged about this too, you might want to help.

ive wanted bigger reaction from these flyers, so im wondering if anyone wants to help distribute. i can put on the atachment and send them to you, you print em out, and we have a giant distribution all over the nation (and world!)

just a thought. dont get off your soapboxes, and if you arent on one, get on one fast.

This is just the beginning of what will most likely happen..especially if Bush is re-elected, as he expressly mentioned revising the patriot act next term to "curb terrorism" or some other bull#. We need to spread the information..something has to be done, take the power back, # uncle sam!

Guys, I'm gonna lock this thread up (but I won't delete it) so you can move your discussion to Scat's ATSNN article on Sherman Austin.
www.abovetopsecret.com...

Discuss away.
