Mass Abuses Alleged
By Seattle Law Enforcement
From NewsHawk Inc. <>
Thanks very much to John Prukop as well as Deuce, both in Washington State, for this update and clarification on severe and illegal abuses being perpetrated by law enforcement against thousands of peaceful demonstrators EXERCISING THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND HUMAN RIGHTS TO ASSEMBLY AND FREE SPEECH.
PLEASE, read this urgent information about how YOUR fellow Americans are being BRUTALIZED viciously in the streets by jack-booted storm-troopers; tear-gassed, pepper-sprayed and flashbanged; shot with rubber bullets; beaten with truncheons; zapped with electric cattle prods; rounded up like cattle in mass arrests and thereafter, denied their most basic human and civil rights, including due process, protection from excessive bail, and the right to consult an attorney.
This is just what one would expect if the demonstrations were being held in BAGHDAD, or BEIJING, or MOSCOW. In fact this is WORSE than how Milosevic's thugs responded to protests in Belgrade some weeks ago.
Is this FOR REAL? Is this AMERICA??
No it's not. Look at what's being protested against in Seattle: the WORLD Trade Organization. No, we're NOT in America ANYMORE--we're in the New World Order.
Read this and do more than weep--GET ANGRY!!
And in closing we have a message from our recipient Gwenn, regarding what was certainly one of the MAIN reasons government agents provocateur instigated the destruction and violence on Seattle streets which precipitated this MASSIVE abuse of human rights: to keep the attention OFF what's going on INSIDE the World Trade Organization meetings!
NewsHawk® Inc. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Hi:
Add one more item to the strategy: The evening news about what is going on inside the meeting has taken a back-seat because of the protesters. We have to congratulate the twisted minds of those who rule, because now the real news doesn't get to be told.
I would say, that is their real agenda.
(If anyone ever thought "they" were human, think again -- take a lesson in pure, unadulterated evil.)

Subject: Seattle Arrests & the WTO: A "SUBVERSIVE ORGANIZATION" under Washington State Law Date: Thu, 2 Dec 1999 02:04:56 -0800
NewsHawk, et al:
We've been monitoring the situation in Seattle most of the day watching Jack booted thugs in full SWAT riot gear with gas masks and Nazi bucket helmets getting in the faces of people for no reason at all. By and large, all of the protestors conducted themselves in a peaceful manner and were not blocking traffic or sidewalks as they were constantly on the move, unlike yesterday in which a small band of "Anarchists" with black bandannas marauded through the streets totally unrestrained by police destroying public and private property. By nightfall tonight, at least 500 protestors --and maybe more-- had been arrested and hauled off in busses to the former Sand Point Naval Air Station, where there is a make-shift "brig". However, most of the protestors were refusing to leave the busses until such time they were provided with legal counsel, something Seattle Police refused. A local public defender was attempting to make some headway without success. Earlier today it was reported that each of the protestors was being held on $20,000 bail, which is extremely excessive. Live television pictures revealed the SWAT dressed Seattle Police, assisted by the King County Sheriff/Police and State Patrol, would charge toward peaceful protestors without provocation of any kind and begin their harassment by spraying pepper and tear gas, as well as firing rubber bullets and explosive flash-bangs. Some people had their faces ground into the pavement under the heel of a black boot - again without provocation or resistance of any kind. The behavior of these Ninja squads is alarming and unsettling, considering this is not Moscow. What we observed today is what you would expect in some tin-horn dictatorship, NOT in America. The ACLU has indicated it may seek an emergency restraining order to challenge Seattle Mayor Paul Schell's order "outlawing demonstrations" within a 50-block area of downtown Seattle, as there are obvious constitutional infringements. (See additional appended items below for further.)
It is interesting to note that the Constitution of the State of Washington (1889), Article I, "Declaration of Rights", contains 34 sections pertaining to individual RIGHTS and the enjoyment thereof. Among the more serious ones involved in todays police-state activities in Seattle are these:
Article I, Section 1 - POLITICAL POWER. All political power is inherent in the People, and governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and are established to protect and maintain individual rights.
Article I, Section 3 - PERSONAL RIGHTS. No person shall be deprived of life, liberty or property, without due process of law.
Article I, Section 4 - RIGHT OF PETITION AND ASSEMBLAGE. The right of petition and of the people peaceably to assemble for the common good shall never be abridged.
Article I, Section 10 - ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE. Justice in all cases shall be administered openly, and without unnecessary delay.
Article I, Section 12 - SPECIAL PRIVILEGES AND IMMUNITIES PROHIBITED. No law shall be passed granting to any citizen, class of citizens, or corporation other than municipal, privileges or immunities which upon the same terms shall not equally belong to all citizens, or corporations.
Article I, Section 14 - EXCESSIVE BAIL, FINES AND PUNISHMENT. Excessive bail shall not be required, excessive fines imposed, nor cruel punishment inflicted.
Article I, Section 18 - MILITARY POWER, LIMITATION OF. The military shall be in strict subordination to the civil power.
Article I, Section 22 - RIGHTS OF THE ACCUSED. In criminal prosecutions the accused shall have the right to appear and defend in person, or by counsel, to demand the nature and cause of the accusation against him, to have a copy thereof, to testify in his own behalf, to meet the witnesses against him face to face, to have compulsory process to compel the attendance of witnesses in his own behalf, to have a speedy public trial by an impartial jury of the county in which the offense is charged to have been committed and the right to appeal in all cases . . . In no instance shall any accused person before final judgment be compelled to advance money or fees to secure the rights herein guaranteed.
Article I, Section 23 - BILL OF ATTAINDER, EX POST FACTO LAW, ETC. No bill of attainder, ex post facto law, or law impairing the obligations of contracts shall ever be passed.
Article I, Section 27 - TREASON, DEFINED, ETC. Treason against the State shall consist only in levying war against the State, or adhering to it enemies, or in giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or confession in open court.
Article I, Section 29 - CONSTITUTION MANDATORY. The provisions of this Constitution are mandatory, unless by express words they are declared to be otherwise.
Article I, Section 30 - RIGHTS RESERVED. The enumeration in this Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny others retained by the people.
Article I, Section 31 - STANDING ARMY. No standing army shall by kept up by this State in time of peace, and no soldier shall in time of peace be quartered in any house without the consent of its owner, no in time of war except in the manner prescribed by law.
Article I, Section 32 - FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES. A frequent recurrence to fundamental principles is essential to the security of individual right and the perpetuity of free government.
You may wonder why we included Article I, Section 27 - TREASON. The reason is the World Trade Organisation is an ILLEGAL INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION. The articles of agreement of the WTO resulting from the 1994 Marrakesh Rounds sets up the WTO as a multilateral body that bypasses the democratic process in each of the member countries. It blatantly derogates national laws and constitutions while providing extensive powers to global banks and multinational corporations. The process of actual creation of the WTO following the Final Act of the Uruguay Round is blatantly "illegal". Namely a "totalitarian" intergovernmental (INTERNATIONAL) body has been casually installed in Geneva, empowered under international law with the mandate to "police" country level economic and social policies, derogating the sovereign rights of national governments. Under the laws of the State of Washington, the acts of the WTO constitute "Subversive" and "Treasonous" activities. RCW (Revised Code of Washington) Chapter 9.81 defines a "Subversive Organization" as any organization which engages in or advocates, abets, advises, or teaches, or a purpose of which is to engage in or advocate, abet, advise, or teach activities intended to OVERTHROW, DESTROY OR ALTER, OR TO ASSIST IN THE OVERTHROW, DESTRUCTION, OR ALTERATION OF, THE CONSTITUTIONAL FORM OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES OR OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON, or of any political subdivision of either of them, by revolution, force or violence. Subversive activities are made a FELONY in the State of Washington. Everything that the WTO represents, and their "systematic scheme" of plans and policies to DIRECT AND CONTROL ALL RESOURCES, both human and natural, are in complete contravention of the Constitution of the United States of America (1787) and the State of Washington (1889), and the domestic laws made in pursuance thereof. Based on the foregoing, which only brushes the surface, it would appear the Mayor of Seattle and his Police Chief, Norm Stamper, have been arresting the WRONG people! RCW 9.81 also defines a "Subversive Person" as any person who commits, attempts to commit, or aids in the commission, or advocates, abets, advises or teaches by any means any person to commit, attempt to commit, or aid in the commission of any act intended to overthrow, destroy or alter, or to assist in the overthrow, destruction or alteration of, the constitutional form of the government of the United States, or of the State of Washington, or any political subdivision of either of them by revolution, force or violence. While it may not appear outwardly that the WTO is committing revolution, force or violence, in essence it carries out its overthrow, destruction and alteration of our constitutional form of government similar to that of "Silent Weapons For Quiet Wars". The matter of Treason is addressed in RCW Chapter 9.82. Treason against the People of the State of Washington consists of (1) Levying war against the People of the State, or (2) Adhering to its enemies, or (3) Giving them aid and comfort. Treason is punishable by death.
The treaty entitled the "General Agreement On Trade And Tariffs" (GATT), has amendments known as the "Uruguay Round Trade Agreement". These amendments created the WTO to regulate PRIVATE INTERNATIONAL TRADE and DOMESTIC PRODUCTION. The Uruguay Round also contains clauses that allow the International Organizations to REGULATE AND CONTROL the member Nations' resources and production. Agro-related production is one particular area of intense interest for the International Organizations. Trade restrictions are now imposed to induce or force the surrender of the USE and CONTROL OF RESOURCES AND PROPERTY to the whims and edicts of the International Organizations. Under the treaty entitled the "Convention On Biological Diversity", three international organizations, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and the World Bank, DIRECT and CONTROL "the policy, strategy, programme priorities and eligibility criteria relating to access to and utilization of resources" (HUMAN AND NATURAL) in EACH member country, including the United States and the several States of the Union. As a member of the convention, the United States, like other Nations, have RELINQUISHED THE SOVEREIGN RIGHTS AND AUTHORITY of this Nation to the International Organizations. The Convention On Biological diversity contains specific language that there are "no reservation of rights". There is NO clause in the several international agreements which provide for "the support, protection, and defense of the natural rights of the people; the principals of which are LIFE, LIBERTY and PROPERTY. Likewise, there is NO oversight by Congress. Indeed, the Articles of Agreement of "The Fund" (IMF-UN) and "The Bank" (World Bank-UN) assert that those holding public office can do not only what the delegated powers under the Constitution did NOT authorize, but what they ABSOLUTELY FORBID. In other words, Congress created an entity and granted IT the capacity to do indirectly what THEY were prohibited from doing directly! Under the International Agreements, the Constitution and domestic laws of the United States, like those of the several States of the Union, ARE MERE WORDS ON PAPER, A DEAD LETTER. Unless of course, the People - from which ALL POWER originates - throw off the yoke of these ILLEGAL International Organizations. Either that . . . or it's "Welcome to the New World Order" -- and the pictures from Seattle are just a preview of what is to come.

-------- Original Message -------- Subject: Battle in Seattle: Corporate Police take the city Date: Wed, 1 Dec 1999 19:04:46 -0800 From: "Deuce" < To: <Undisclosed-Recipient:;
Well, we here in Seattle today found out just exactly why the police pushed demonstrators into the residential areas of Seattle last night. The city was contacted by the Secret Service and told that if they did not lock down the city, the President would not come to Seattle.
A group of a few hundred peaceful protestors made their way towards the WTO meeting site early this morning with two clear messages: We do not like the WTO and we will show that we can protest without violence. They were met by Seattle Stormtroopers dressed to the nines and arrested immediately.
This is a sad day for, not only Seattle, but the whole United States. A precedent was set here that peaceful demonstrations and protests against the Global Elite will not be allowed. You may only protest if you get a permit.
I wonder if the WTO delegate who was caught on camera waiving a pistol around was arrested. Or the one who was caught on camera assaulting protestors with his fists. I doubt it.
Police officers are conducting searches in people's backpacks and being told that they will not be allowed into the city if they wear clothing or buttons that protest the WTO. One officer informed a citizen that gas masks are not allowed in the city. I heard one officer clearly state that "Protestors are not allowed in the city. Citizens are." Police are not even making distinctions anymore between gassing and concussion bombing groups of protestors and groups of average citizens going about their business.
We no longer have a police force here in the Seattle downtown area. We have a corporate military force that will not tolerate protestors without a permit.
The mayor of Seattle informed the press that he had no way of knowing the WTO meetings would bring this many protestors, so he was caught unprepared. Excuse me? That's absolutely the most ridiculous statement he could have made! The mainstream press has known! Anyone with an internet connection has known! This is completely inexcusable!
And I continue to wonder why police were not doing a damned thing about these black clad, hooded 'Anarchists' who were hell-bent on causing damage and destruction! The police chief decided that if they sent officers after the ones causing destruction, they might lose a foothold on the areas they had locked down against the peaceful demonstrations! What kind of idiotic thinking is that?
One of these 'Anarchists' was asked by a reporter why they were so violent. He commented that it was to take a few pennies away from the greedy corporations who have taken billions of dollars from us. Then they went on and defaced and destroyed the storefront of the NikeTown building. One camera caught the shot of the evening last night as the photographer got a close up of the feet of one of these 'Anarchists' as he was kicking down the Nike logo. Guess what brand name shoes he was wearing: guessed it. Nike.
The protests are beginning to turn into protests against police violence instead of protests against the WTO, chanting, "NO MORE VIOLENCE!" and, "SHAME ON YOU!" to the police.
For those of you cynical types out there who think the youth of America don't give a damn anymore (and I'll admit I was one of them until just recently), these last few days should bring you great hope. Most of the tens of thousands of people on the streets these last few days are high school and college aged kids. The great spirit of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness lives on in America. And 99% of them were NON VIOLENT and are aware of the real issues that threaten those values we once fought British tyranny over to gain our freedom. Many risked their own health to stop the idiot 'Anarchists' from their indiscriminant destruction. And for this, we should rejoice.
So despite my sadness, hope springs forth.

Text of letter from the ACLU to Mayor Paul Schell The American Civil Liberties Union of Washington
November 30,1999
Mayor Paul Schell 600 Fourth Avenue 12th Floor Seattle, WA 98104
Re: Tuesday WTO Protests
Dear Mayor Schell:
The ACLU objects to the imposition of a curfew covering the entire downtown area of Seattle. This invocation of emergency powers prevents all citizens from pursuing their lawful business, including the constitutionally protected business of peaceful, nonviolent protest.
Regrettably, a small fraction of today's overwhelmingly peaceful crowd committed vandalism and other crimes for which they could legitimately be arrested and prosecuted. Their violence interfered with the ability of all to express their views about the WTO. The City should of course respond to such criminal behavior, but in a way that does not unreasonably impair the rights of law abiding citizens. A curfew is entirely indiscriminate. It affects all people, regardless of their actions. We believe a curfew was an overreaction to the day's events, and that order can be restored simply by enforcing existing laws.
We are in the process of preparing legal papers for a temporary restraining order in the event the curfew is extended into the daylight hours on Wednesday December 1. Feel free to call me at 624-2184 ext. 233 to discuss the matter.
