As we near the one-year anniversary of the protests at the WTO meeting in Seattle, countless media organizations will be recapping the year when mass protest once again seized the imagination of thousands of students, workers, and activists. The massive protests in Seattle and Washington, DC against international financial institutions, and in Philadelphia and Los Angeles outside the national political conventions, signaled to many a rebirth of direct action and a re-awakening of the American conscience. But while it is heartening to count the thousands who turned out for these demonstrations, it was equally disturbing to see the violent state repression of demonstrators. In Seattle, Washington, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles during the past year, tear gas, pepper spray, and rubber bullets were repeatedly used on protestors. And at the same time that many were protesting the environmental, social, and political dangers of the globalization espoused by the WTO, and as many others were demanding that control of American politics be wrested away from corporate donors and given back to the people, a growing movement has sought to expose the increasing frequency of police brutality, not only at mass demonstrations, but on a daily basis, in most major cities of America. And who can comment on police brutality and state repression of free speech better than an imprisoned journalist who faces censorship on a daily basis? In this program we hear from death row inmate and journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal about the growing culture of resistance to corporate power and police brutality.
