Dissent in the Press

Here is the link to the Asheville Citizen-Times Article.
Also the interview with Cecil Bothwell on Blows Against the Empire on WPVM 103.5FM. After a few songs and some technical difficulties, Jonas recounts the events on Wednesday, August 15th.

These types of abuses have been happening across the country, not just in Asheville.

A couple in Ohio were recently awarded $80,000 over being arrested for wearing anti Bush t-shirts.
There is also a man in Ohio facing littering charges for placing an impeach sign about the size of a real estate sign, on a corner.
And the group organizing the September 15th march in DC are facing over $10,000 in fines for placing flyers on utility poles.

I will try to get the links to these stories and others soon.
