Police Seize Journalists' Cameras and Notes About RNC Protest Plans

Thanks to The UpTake's Ken Avidor for capturing this video. It's a disturbing incident, especially when paired with other reports of photographers being hassled, and The UpTake will be following this issue very closely.

Vlad and his, err, comrades are artists and journalists. They are credentialed for The UpTake's RNC Media Room. They capture unique panoramic video and we intend to ensure the rights of our ciizen journalists are respected.

Check out this KSTP report on the same incident.

It's a shame we don't host our own convention in the USA besides always following the crooks and liars that have the militarized police state on our asses.

Time to Convene our own gathering.

Don't worry - I'm not far from Cuba.
