Red Ribbon Grand Jury ~ Chadron, NE ~ June 24th 2008
Testimony regarding specific crimes and specific injustices which exemplify the atmosphere of fascism in Dawes county Nebraska.
While covering the plight of the Lakota in Chadron the NOmadjik Media bus was sabatoged with deep red clay in the fuel lines. We were immobilized and all mechanics who responded to fix it changed their minds a day after agreeing to do the job. During this period a little research showed that a month earlier a journalist who had been studying racism in Chadron and had dissappeared several years before had just been unearthed in a local park... not all that well hidden in a relatively populated area. The public was to believe the body had been there for several years without being detected in the numerous man hunts that had combed the area after he went missing. We were lucky enough to be a AAA member with towing privledges; so after a week or more of being harassed by local police & kindly not helped by local businesses, we were able to be towed 100 miles to the safety of a real international truck shop. At this point we had not yet published anything about the issues in Chadron. Along the way our tow truck driver confided to us that he used to work as a guard at the local prison (where the current police chief had been warden). We were a little concerned about that since he was taking us "somewhere".
No one even realized Tim Robbins was there talking to Michael Moore until I spoke up. MM's publicist and myself got into a little spat...be patient and listen to my groggy voice...I'm sick :(
MBN Independent Media Saboteur
It was NOT actually Bug Spray. A counter protester tries to sabotage the generator being used by independent media at the first campsite of the march. Several independent reports from those on the scene said it smelled like Starter Fluid. Irregardless, the best thing that could have happened if I had allowed this man to continue would have been the destruction of the generator. The worst thing that could have happened is that he blew up himself, the generator, gas can, and potentially the Media Bus full of people and equipment. mo'fo' marchonblairmountain.org sorrow, sorry, let's stop this shit together http From: FluxRostrum Views: 16590 60 ratings Time: 02:52 More in News & Politics
