prwatch has several good links about the massive police brutality at the miami FTAA protests, & daryl westfall passed on a link to some audio (including journalists getting shot). reports are very bleak. i'll be searching for more audio & video footage; i'm sure indymedia & democracy now! will have some good stuff.

oh, & here's an unrelated bit about a bill passed by congress which gives the govt oversight over what universities teach, to the extent that "professors whose ideological principles may not support U.S. practices abroad can have their appointments terminated, any part of a course's curriculum containing criticisms of U.S. foreign policy can be censored, and any course deemed entirely anti-American can be barred from ever being taught."
