Judge Orders Release of N.Y. Protesters

by SARA KUGLER

.c The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) - A judge ordered the immediate release of nearly 500 protesters. Thursday, just hours before President Bush was to speak at the Republican National Convention.

State Supreme Court Justice John Cataldo ordered 470 protesters freed, including some who had been awaiting arraignment for almost three days.

"These people have already been the victims of a process,'' the judge told the city's top lawyer. "I can no longer accept your statement that you are trying to comply.''

The city had blamed the sheer volume of detainees for the backlog in getting them released. More than 1,700 protesters have been arrested during the convention and the preceding few days - nearly 1,200 of them on Tuesday during a long-planned day of mass civil disobedience.

The judge's order came less than six hours before Bush was to accept his party's nomination for a second term in a speech at Madison Square Garden. Police are expecting potential protests coinciding with the speech.

YOU SAY YOU WANT A CONSTITUTION
Victor Navasky, The Nation
The reading of the U.S. Constitution turns out to be a rousing crowd pleaser.

Rachel Neumann, AlterNet
In their creativity, spontaneity, and the lack of clear structure and organization, the protests on Tuesday were a marked contrast from the scene within the Convention.

BANNED IN AMERICA
John Tirman, AlterNet
Tariq Ramadan of Switzerland, one of the world's most
important Muslim scholars, was invited to teach at the
University of Notre Dame. Then he ran right into the USA
Patriot Act.

THE NEW ABOLITIONISTS
Nina Shapiro, Seattle Weekly
Freeing 'sex slaves' is now at the top of the human rights
agenda, thanks largely to Christian evangelicals. How did
the anti-trafficking crusade evolve, and is it being
overhyped?
