OUTRAGE IN OHIO: ANGRY RESIDENTS STORM STATE HOUSE! MASSIVE VOTER SUPPRESION & CORRUPTION : DEMOCRACY FAILURE

By David Solnit

November 3 Toledo Ohio-- Hundreds of angry Ohio residents marched through the streets of Columbus Ohiošs Capital this evening and stormed the Ohio State House, defying orders and arrest threats from Ohio State Troopers. "O-H-I-O! suppressed democracy has got to go,"they chanted. After troopers pushed and scuffled with people, nearly a hundred people took over the steps and entrance to the Statešs giant white column capital building and refused repeated orders to disperse or face arrest. People prepared for arrests, ready to face jail‹writing lawyers phone numbers on their arms, signing jail support lists and discussing non-cooperation and active resistance (linking arms, but not fighting back). A freshly painted banner held on the steps read "ONE VOTE DENIED = DEMOCRACY IN TROUBLE! 100šS OF 1000šS OF VOTES SURPRESSED = DEMOCRACY FAILED" articulated the crisis. An unprecedented massive grassroots voter registration and get out the vote effort and widespread opposition to Bush went up against the massive coordinated Republican effort to suppress, intimidate and possibly steal millions of votes. In addition to the voter suppression and intimidation is the fact that Bush campaign co-chair Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell is in charge of the election and vote counting. But much deeper questions about fundamental flaws in the system hang in the air.
