November 24, 2004.Hey, how you all doing today. Well, I finally got my camera back from the NYPD. So tomorrow we are going to have a special Thanksgiving day episode. Featuring a Video Interview I did with Alex Ryabov, from Iraq Veterans Against The War. This interview was recorded on August 31, 2004 in front of The World Trade Center, just minutes before I got arrested. It's been in Police Custody ever since, until it arrived at my door today. Delivered by an agent of The Federal Government. (The Mailman) Read the whole story in H.L. Does Time.
Here is a related story.
CIVIL RIGHTS LAWSUIT AGAINST THE CITY OF NEW YORK ON BEHALF OF ALMOST 2000 ARRESTED DURING THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION FILING ON 11/22
On November 22, 2004, a group of protesters and bystanders wrongfully arrested during the Republican National Convention last August will file a class action lawsuit on behalf of the almost 2,000 who were wrongfully arrested and detained under filthy and toxic conditions for unreasonably prolonged periods of time. They contend that the City and the NYPD took these actions to punish them for engaging in political expression and protest.
We sue them now, because on January its time to get out in the streets again
They will be on the streets of Washington D.C.
The long ago promised H.L. T-Shirts are being made as we speak, I just talked to Roby, and he said that they will be ready on Friday, at which point I will pick them up.

Support H.L., and look good doing it. Details soon,
This is what should be going on here in The U.S.A.
Opposition Calls for Strike in Ukraine
Hundreds of Thousands take to the streets in The UkraineBy NATASHA LISOVA, Associated Press Writer KIEV, Ukraine -Nov. 24, 2004
Opposition leaders called Wednesday for a nationwide strike to shut down factories, schools and transportation after officials declared Ukraine's pro-Kremlin prime minister the winner of a presidential runoff election that many countries denounced as rigged. The call by reformist candidate Viktor Yushchenko and his allies for an "all-Ukrainian political strike" risked provoking a crackdown by outgoing President Leonid Kuchma's government, which has said the opposition's actions in the aftermath of Sunday's bitterly disputed runoff were, in effect, preparations for a coup d'etat. A strike could also further divide the country: Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych drew his support from the pro-Russian, heavily industrialized eastern half of the country, while Yushchenko's strength was in the west, a traditional center of Ukrainian nationalism.
