American Samizdat

Thursday, November 21, 2002. *
Jose Bove gets sentenced to 14 months in jail for destroying two fields of gm crops. I can still picture him standing on top of a stopped bus in the middle of a halted intersection in downtown Seattle, the day before November 30, 1999, surrounded by an outbreak of fleshy democracy. Jose Bove is a living folk hero, and not only that--he's an internationally-recognized living folk hero. Globalize genuine folk heroes! Long live Jose Bove!
