Amy Goodman is a Revolutionary I respect and admire greatly.
Her arrest at the RNC/by RNC officials does not surprise me.
Goodman was arrested as she tried to stop the arrest
of 2 journalists, Abdel Kouddous and Nicole Salazar,
with whom she'd been assigned to cover
the protests at the Republican National Convention.
Democracy Now! reported that "[a]ll three [journalists] were violently manhandled by law enforcement officers. Abdel Kouddous was slammed against a wall and the ground, leaving his arms scraped and bloodied. He sustained other injuries to his chest and back. [Nicole] Salazar’s violent arrest by baton-wielding officers, during which she was slammed to the ground while yelling, 'I’m Press! Press!,' resulted in her nose bleeding, as well as causing facial pain. Goodman’s arm was violently yanked by police as she was arrested."
I read about the arrest of Goodman and her colleagues, on Alison Bechdel's blog;
she is the creator of Dykes to Watch Out For.
