Joe La Sac in conjunction with Pepperspray Production and Seattle Independent Media will be showing “Ground Noise and Static” in the University of Puget Sound’s Rotunda at 7pm on November 3rd. The film chronicles the experiences of demonstrators at the Republican and Democratic National Conventions and their clashes with police. A discussion is planned for after the showing. Here’s Joe’s detail for the film:
Our goal at the DNC and RNC conventions was to cover what was happening in the streets, not to obtain passes for the scripted and superficial showcases going on inside the armored fortresses. This included a 10 to 15 minute daily video dispatch as well as blogs from each convention. The daily video dispatches are viewable online and were also aired on cable television via Free Speech TV.
If you can’t make the showing, be sure to watch the film here. It discusses use of excessive police force and other law-bending actions at the DNC/RNC that ARE NOT being covered by the mainstream media.
