Vitenam, Vissai: fishermen clashing with cops, as cement company threatens to destroy their way of life, free beaten prisoner from cop car “Fishermen protesting the construction of a port project benefiting a major Vietnamese cement producer clashed with police … with one man beaten as he attempted to get medicine… as many as 700 villagers attempted to protest the construction project…The witnesses said 64-year-old Nguyen Viet Nong was beaten as he attempted to walk through the police lines to get medicine. His beating caused the eruption of a broader clash between the police and the fishermen….“At the edge of the village, I saw many policemen blocking the road,” Nong told RFA. “I told them that I needed to go out to buy some medicine because I’m sick, and then I continued walking. One policeman kicked me in the chest, making me fall. Then they all stepped on me.” Nong said that he was then forced into a police car, but the car was stopped by the crowd after it had trav-eled about a kilometer. “They opened the door and let me out,” he said. “A village doctor came to check on me and told me that I was injured in my chest because of their strong kicks.” … people from about 400 families had gathered at the demonstration site to protest the low compensa-tion the government has offered them for disruption to fishing.“

Informants, Green Scare Snitches, and Surveillance: Interview with Lauren Regan, CLDC

From Earth First! Journal (Black and Green Review #3 originally)

As an attorney and long-term activist Lauren Regan has a vantage on state and corporate surveillance that few other activists are exposed to. Regan is the founder and Executive Director of the Civil Liberties Defense Center based in Eugene, OR. She has an extensive history of defending activists after inevitable run ins with the law. She represented a number of Green Scare defendants and has arguably spent more time sorting through Green Scare, AETA, and other similar cases to know about the extent of government and corporate surveillance, disruption, provocation, and how failures of Security Culture opened the door for them.
