List of Journalists Arrested at the RNC

Posted on September 10.2008 by Josh Stearns

During and before the Republican National Convention police in St. Paul arrested numerous journalists, including Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman and her staff, members of a number of independent video groups, an AP photographer and staff from local broadcast stations and newspapers around
St. Paul.

Arresting and detaining journalists for doing their jobs is a gross violation of free speech and freedom of the press. Journalists must be free to do their jobs without intimidation. On September 5th, local citizens delivered more than 60,000 letters to St. Paul City Hall calling on Mayor Chris Coleman and local law enforcement officials to drop all charges against journalists arrested while covering protests outside the Republican National Convention.

Below we have begun collecting names of journalists who were charged and links to news reports about their arrests. This is a growing list. If you have information about a journalist who is not listed here please email Josh Stearns at jstearns@freepress.net.

Journalist arrested during RNC faces over year in prison

Journalist arrested during RNC faces over year in prison
By Reporters Without Borders.

Journalist arrested during Republican National Convention faces over one year in prison for parole violation

Reporters Without Borders is asking for the judge to show clemency for journalist Jason Nicholas, independent photographer for the New York Post, currently in jail in Rikers Island, NY for parole violation. Jason Nicholas is scheduled for another parole hearing in front of an administrative judge on October 15th. He was one of over 40 journalists arrested while covering the Republican National Convention on September 1st. While most charges against other journalists in St.Paul have been dropped, Mr. Nicholas has not yet been cleared of obstruction to the legal process.

“These pending charges are hurting his chances of being restored to parole” commented his lawyer Wylie Stecklow. “Jason is a remarkable example of successful rehabilitation. He did not break his parole with any intention to commit a criminal act. He was at the Convention working, which is actually a positive thing. The violation should be seen as a technical one and the penalty should reflect that. Otherwise, the publics’ faith in the true integrity of the correctional and parole systems would be jeopardized. ”

“The fact that Jason Nicholas didn’t have the appropriate paperwork to travel to another state is not a sufficient reason to send him to jail. To be able to carry out his work, a journalist needs to be able to travel freely. At the end of the day, it is absurd that Jason Nicholas would be imprisoned for the very activity that confirms its full reintegration to society” stated Reporters Without Borders.

The international press freedom organization has written to the administrative judge presiding over Mr. Nicholas’ s case asking that the charges in Minnesota not influence his decision and that the journalist be released: “Jason should not have been arrested for simply doing his job. We have denounced the arrests of reporters in Minneapolis as overzealous and abusive. The fact that Jason Nicholas has not been cleared as the other reporters were is incomprehensible and unfair” said the press freedom organization “While we do understand that there must be repercussions to any parole contravention, we believe that in this case the penalty should fit the violation.”

Mr. Nicholas, who has already spent more than 4 weeks in prison, faces up to 14 months in prison.

The saga of the NOmadjik Media Bus at the Republican National Convention played out among context that will sadden anyone who believes in freedom and democracy. The RNC in St. Paul was an exercise in intimidation, harassment and preemptive arrest of JOURNALISTS.
