    Pirate radio calls for inauguration protests
    Dec. 23, 2004

    An unauthorized radio station in the nation's capital called for "massive protests" in the week leading up to the January 20 presidential inauguration. The station broadcast Wednesday at 1680 AM and identified itself as "Guerrilla Radio, WSQT." During the identification message, an announcer said, "WSQT is a project of urban activists in the D.C. area working on housing issues, homeless issues, issues of war, issues of occupation both at home and abroad, and issues of the environment that we all have to live in." After being tipped by a reporter, an official with the Federal Communications Commission said enforcement investigators will try to pinpoint the transmitter using direction-finding equipment. A man responding to a request for an interview sent to an e-mail address that had been mentioned on the radio told CNN the station uses a homemade transmitter and a concealed antenna. "It's about $40 in parts from Radio Shack and the Dumpster," he said in a telephone interview Wednesday afternoon. The caller's voice sounded similar to the voice heard on the broadcasts throughout the day. Other programming featured rap music with urgent, unsettled lyrics that were generally shouted instead of sung. The station's poor audio quality made the vocalizations nearly unintelligible. An unidentified announcer said, "It's time to say no to Bush and no to a ban on abortions." The announcer also called on the Supreme Court justices to "get off your butts" and free people unfairly imprisoned on drug convictions, and further stated that "we know you can hear our signal up there, and all you people in Congress." There is no authorized radio outlet in the Washington area on the frequency used by the protesters, federal records show. CNN monitored the signal on a conventional car radio as far away as the Maryland suburbs, about 10 miles from downtown Washington. An FCC monitoring station is within reception range of the signal, the agency official said.

    I have a feeling that all that will happen is that everyone will march into a protest pin and then get their ass kicked by cops, and not be anywhere near where the president is.

    there is going to be MASSIVE security on this shit.

    pretty fucked, considering the $30million pricetag
    during WWII there were no inaugural celebrations, because the government understood it wasn't the time or the place.

    dubya is so karmically fucked.

    i'd like to join the protest anyway, i feel like it wouldbe kinda cathartic.
    i need my voice to be heard somehow i guess
    and my boss could give a flying fuck if i get arrested protesting his parade.

    I'm going to go too since protesting is not illegal right? I mean we still have the right to peaceably assemble and demonstrate right?

    they'll probably set up a nice little "protest zone" like at the DNC where all the punks and hippies have to stand inside a barb-wire-enclosed-area patrolled by SWAT

    a pirate radio station called for a protest?! no shit!! that's awesome. now that the pirate radio stations are on board, there's no way we can lose!
    :rolleyes:

    im glad that people protest and all that, but id rather burn things and break things. if i was in a country where it actually mattered and the government listened, that would be one thing, but they dont listen to shit here. i figure if im gonna get hit with a club, least i can do for myself is cop a new tv.


    seeks/SNOW: this shit is cold!

    The issue of abortion is so tiny in comparison when dealing with this illiterate boy scout. When thinking of all the reasons for my true hatred of this guy it doesn't even cross my mind.
