Video thumbnail. Click to play

Here's a video of Democracy Now producer Elizabeth Press and others describing how the police broke into several private homes in the Twin Cities. Police entered with guns drawn and handcuffed the journalists and searched their house and property for no apparent reason (other than intimidation).

and another video of Democracy Now host Amy Goodman being arrested for "interfering with a peace officer" yesterday when she attempted to ask police about the violent arrest of two Democracy Now journalists.

Amy Goodman discusses her arrest on Free Speech TV.

Eileen Clancy of iWitness Video on WNYC's Brian Lehrer show:

twin cities indymedia here

salon.com coverage here and here

coverage of these events is so far mysteriously absent from the New York Times.
