Sorry, I can not get any photo of Nick (Nicholas) Turse – USA

… but this photo about “war dead” placards (from a page of Washington Post.com, of August 31, 2004): On the second day of the Republican National Convention, Marlene Rocha reads a magazine as George Lee, Ovay Henkel and Max protest deaths in wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. Members of the small, autonomous protest group sat silently on a subway train going uptown as police followed them.

They were arrested for disorderly conduct when they tried to change trains. New York Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly said there were 260 arrests Tuesday, for a total of about 800 since protests related to the convention began Thursday.

(During this happening), Nick was (also) jailed by the homeland-security state when he dared to ride the subway with a “war dead” placard around his neck. He asks that you consider donating to the NYC Legal Work Fund Collective for RNC Arrestees and/or the National Lawyers Guild who saved him more than once during the protests. (See all on Selves and Others, together with the article).
