- Subject: BATTLE IN SEATTLE: Mayor & Police Chief
LYING!!! Date: Fri, 3 Dec 1999 14:08:53 -0800 From: "CCW" <email@example.com
- NewsHawk, et al.,
- Seattle Mayor Paul Schell ("Shock") and his
Police Chief, Norm Stamper ("Hamper") have been completely disingenuous
with the compliant media and everyone else. THEY ARE LYING about not "expecting"
any problems during the (illegal) WTO Ministerial! The "SMOKING GUN"
is that the City of Seattle ORDERED at least 500 sets of BODY ARMOR earlier
this year from Second Chance Body Armor in Central Lake, Michigan. The
order was a RUSH order, and absolutely HAD to be shipped before the end
of October. Our source also tells us that, "several of my friends
here in Central Lake work for the company, and today were bragging about
seeing their 'creations' on TV. Anyway, the mayor HAD to know what was
coming." So, the three stooges here in Washington State, Governor
Gary Locke, Seattle Mayor Paul Schell and Police Chief Norm Stamper, all
KNEW what had been "planned" all along. And THEY were the ones
who planned it! Controlled Opposition and Chaos which are the hallmarks
of the New World Order GANG: Jack booted thugs.
- Now, as the following article very well articulates .
. . this entire fiasco was a "SET-UP" from the get-go: a diversion
away from what the WTO was doing, refocusing on police-protestor clashes,
and QUASHING any opposition to the elitist mattoids of the New World Order
and Comrade Chairman Bill Klinton.
- By the way, monitoring the talk shows on Seattle radio
stations reveals that most of the people in the City of Seattle and surrounding
neighborhoods DON'T HAVE A CLUE as to how CORRUPT their government administrations
are . . . they REALLY believe all this drivel that Mayor Schell and Police
Chief Stamper are feeding them. EXCUSE ME! But I guess it's been raining
too much here in the Northwest . . . the Earth Muffins are living underneath
their "mushrooms" where it's still dark. Control of the Earth
Muffins is quite simple: keep 'em in the dark and feed 'em shit! (Pardon
the expletive, but in the present circumstance I believe it to be QUITE

- Collateral Damage in Seattle By Jim Desyllas (posted
12-2-99) Note - The author is a student in Portland Oregon. This report
was called in from a pay phone outside Seattle. Wed., 7:30 pm Pacific time.
- Www.emperors-clothes.com urges the widest possible distribution
of this article. Please copy it in full, including this note. Thanks.
- I just spent 4 days in Seattle. The "information"
people are getting from the mass media is false. This was not, as Pres.
Clinton claims, a peaceful protest marred by the actions of violent protesters.
This was a massive, strong but peaceful demonstration which was attacked
repeatedly by the police with the express purpose of provoking a violent
response to provide photo opportunities for the Western media. I know because
I watched it happening. I'll tell you how they did it.
- As Michel Chossudovsky says in his "Disarming the
New World Order" (See Note # 3 at end for link to that article) -
the government put a lot of effort into making sure the protesters in Seattle
were a "loyal opposition" who wanted to reform the WTO, not get
rid of it. But the people in Seattle - American steel workers, Canadian
postal workers, college kids from all over, environmentalists from Australia
- you name it - were not for reforming the WTO. They were for getting rid
- And this wasn't just true of the protesters. I interviewed
delegates. None of them had anything favorable to say about the WTO. Two
delegates from the Caribbean were angry about job loss. One delegate from
Peru took a bullhorn and got up on a car and spoke to the protestors against
the World Trade Organization. He said it hurts the workers and farmers.
I interviewed a Norwegian guy from Greenpeace. Totally against it. Even
a delegate from Holland said it had hurt the farmers there. He said though
it is supposedly democratic, that's actually a lie: the US, England and
Canada and a few others get together and decide what they want to do. Then
they ask the rest of the countries to vote and if they vote wrong they
threaten,"You won't get loans," or whatever. They get them to
do what they want by blackmailing them. The Italians we interviewed were
upset too. I couldn't find any delegates who were in favor.
- So the government instigated a "riot" to discredit
the movement against the WTO because they couldn't dilute it. I am not
guessing about this. I was there. I saw it happening. And I will tell you
I am frankly shocked to see, close up, just how little our leaders care
what happens to ordinary people. Clinton can pose and speak a lot of flowery
stuff but the truth is - we are nothing to them. I saw this with my own
- Sunday and Monday, there was no violence. None. The people
were aggressively non-violent; they were self-policing. Up until Tuesday
at 4pm there was one window broken in the whole city - a McDonalds window.
This compares favorably to the typical rock concert, let alone a demonstration
of people who were non-violently barring entry to the World Trade Center!
- At this point, a new group of police - tactical police
- moved in and started gassing people and shooting rubber bullets. Is it
any surprise that people got mad? Of course, the young kids hit back by
breaking some windows in retaliation for being gassed, sprayed with very
painful pepper gas, and shot with dangerous "rubber" bullets.
The police instigated these kids, plain and simple.
- Sunday and Monday they had young cops, using them to
block the streets. These were trainees. But Tuesday they had the real cops;
none of them were young. They were trained to attack people. A small group,
maybe 100 people total, struck back. Then these cops herded that group
around the city, making sure there were plenty of photo ops of "violent
- A number of times they had these 100 or so protesters
caught between buildings and walls of police. They could easily have arrested
and detained this small number of people and gotten it over with. Instead
they would gas them and let them go. Then trap them again, gas them again,
and again let them go. The cops made no arrests that I know of until late
Tuesday night though the skirmishing was going on from three till 9:30.
The cops would blockade three or five blocks of an area, give the angry
kids room to operate, keep gassing them - when you gas a person, let me
tell you, it gets them fighting mad.
- Tuesday night the police gassed all of downtown. This
was going on from 3 PM, till 6 PM.. Gas everywhere. The kids broke a few
windows - McD's, Starbucks - small stuff - burned a few garbage cans. The
police were using these people as extras. It was staged. I believe also
the police had their own people in there, encouraging people to break stuff
- if people think I may be exaggerating, I saw supposed protesters - they
were screaming and so on - and then later, when everything was over, the
same people tackled other protestors and put handcuffs on them.
- At 6pm they issued a State of Emergency. At that point
they had pushed the 100 people outside the city limits, so the police went
outside the limits too, and they started gassing that area too, gassing
the neighborhoods where the regular people live. I am not exaggerating.
The police were relentless.
- This was in an area from the city limits for about 10
blocks to the Seattle Central Community College. If you were alive, the
police gassed you. People coming back from work, kids, women, everyone.
People would go out of their houses to see what was happening because these
tear gas guns sound like a cannon - and they would get gassed. A block
away there was a Texaco gas station - they threw tear gas at gas pumps,
believe it or not - they were like vandals. They gassed a bus. I saw it
with my own eyes. A bus. The driver, the riders, the people just abandoned
- I was sitting in a little coffee shop called Rauhaus,
[Jim did not spell this - the spelling may be wrong.] They were shooting
"rubber" bullets at the glass. I picked up a dozen of the things
in a few square feet. They were also shooting this paint that you can only
see with a florescent light. They would paint anyone and everyone and then
go hunting them.
- Anyway, because they were gassing everybody, the local
people got mad too and they joined the 100 who had been herded out of the
city. So soon there were 500 including the neighborhood people and all
very angry. Naturally. Because they had been gassed and hit with pepper
spray, that stuff does a number on you. And shot with these damn bullets.
Then people set up barricades at Seattle Central Community College. The
cops organized themselves for about an hour and then moved in and gassed
- Today they started mass arrests. That was because Clinton
- the Greeks call him the Planitarchis, Ruler of the World - was coming.
Weeping crocodile tears about how he just LOVES peaceful protest, which
of course you'd have to be two years old to believe he had nothing to do
with the police action. This whole thing, this police attack, this was
US foreign policy, not some action decided by some bureaucrat in Seattle.
This was the State Department. They wanted to discredit the people.
- Sunday there was a protest of solidarity involving people
from different walks of life. Monday it got even bigger. Tuesday there
was a big sort of carnival where people were doing different things, a
band was playing music and people were blocking the World Trade Center.
And about 3 PM the cops started throwing tear gas.
- The thing that drove Clinton crazy was that on Tuesday
the protesters had succeeded in making nonviolent human chains and had
therefore stopped everyone from going into the World Trade Center. Only
maybe 27 delegates got through, mostly US and British. There were what
seemed like tens of thousands of protesters involved. So the police did
their gassing number against these nonviolent people to break up the human
chains and make the protesters look violent.
- Today (Wednesday) I followed the union protest put together
by the Longshoremen's Union. They went down to the docks and had a rally
then marched to Third Avenue. As soon as they got there the cops started
gassing them. There was an old lady there. She had gone downtown by bus
to buy something. This lady was in her 70's and I saw her trying to run,
but she couldn't breathe. She was in shock. I carried her to a building
entryway. She was gasping, terrified. She had been in Germany, and it was
like she was having flashbacks. The tear gas sounds like gunfire and there
were helicopters overhead, sirens, cops on horses, everything.
- They had clearly made a decision to destroy this movement.
- So anyway there I was with her in this building and she
wanted to go to the hospital but there was tear gas everywhere and I was
afraid if I tried to move her she'd be gassed again. I went to this line
of cops and begged - I mean begged - these riot police to help her. They
ignored me. A girl told me later that a one year old had been gassed. And
I myself saw a girl no more than 18 - a cop had busted her lip wide open
- she was bleeding - and then they gassed everyone including her. After
that she was kneeling on the ground crying like a baby and praying for
15 minutes, Hail Mary, Hail Mary. Over and over. She was in a state of
shock. They just gassed these people who were sitting down non-violently
and doing nothing. Nothing.
- At one point the Seattle Mayor said his boys were not
using rubber bullets. Miraculously, by then I had ten in my pocket. I could
open a little market, sell the things. They are everywhere. I and other
people started giving them to delegates and stuff. "See what they're
doing? They're shooting "rubber" bullets and lying about it."
We showed them to the media. I guess enough people and the media got the
information because the Mayor made a new statement then that they were
using them. As if he hadn't known.
- They shot rubber bullets from four feet away into the
face of a guy next to me, broke all his front teeth. When that happened
I lost it. I forgot I was supposed to be getting the news for all of you
and I started yelling at the cops, "What the hell is wrong with you?
Are you sick, man?" So this cop aimed his gun right at me. That was
his answer. So I first put my hands in front of my face because I didn't
want to lose my teeth. And then I thought, to hell with it. I was wearing
my target shirt that said "Collateral Damage", you know? With
a bullseye target, like they wore during the bombing in Yugoslavia. And
I told this guy, "Go ahead, shoot! Here! Here's the target!"
He didn't shoot me.
- I want to emphasize, these protesters were NOT violent
people. They were the most non-violent people I have ever seen. Even when
I was screaming at the cop, this girl came up to me and said, "Do
not scream. This is non-violent." These people were too much to believe.
They must meditate all the time, I don't know.
- Clinton said he supports nonviolent protest. That is
baloney. Today (Wed.) the protesters were causing absolutely no "trouble".
In downtown the cops had people running who weren't even protesters - like
that old lady or just people going to work or shopping - everyone was getting
gassed. The busses weren't running because of the gas. I was lucky to catch
one with a driver who could still see. I begged him to drive the old lady
home - the driver changed his route especially for her. If you want to
find human decency, stay away from the Planitarchis. Go to the to regular
people. They have some. The Planitarchis lost all his years ago. Now he
wouldn't know human decency if it came up and bit him.
- So now I have made personal acquaintance with the people
who run this country, and they are quite simply scum. There were people
at work, people with babies, they were all getting gassed because the government
would not allow an assembly of people speaking their minds. It is the same
as what happened in Athens. Clinton's requirements on the Greek government
created the riot and he did the same thing here. And then he says he supports
nonviolent protest? How? By shooting rubber bullets? And today they outlawed
gas masks. They want to make sure everyone gets his money's worth.
- Today, just like yesterday night, the police were in
the residential neighborhoods. People in cafés were getting gassed
and shot at, you could hear it on the windows, bang, bang, bang. A guy
trying to cross the street to go to his house got gassed. First a drunk
guy outside a bar yelled at the cops "Get out of here!" so they
gassed him. And then this other guys was just crossing the street to go
home so the cops figured, might as well gas him too. People got gassed
for coming out of restaruants and bars and coffeee shops. I'm amazed that
nobody died who had asthma or something.
- Or maybe somebody did die and they didn't talk about
it. I mean after all, it's just collateral damage..
