Occupy Asheville is hosting a protest today — marching from Pritchard Park to the federal building — to protest the Citizens United decision and call for an end to corporate personhood. Speakers will include Asheville City Council member Cecil Bothwell and Dr. Errington Thompson. The protest begins at 4:30 p.m.
The federal building in downtown Asheville was evacuated around noon today, June 21, due to a suspicious package with a "cryptic note" directed at federal law enforcement agencies. Asheville Police Department officers disrupted the package with high-powered water and a blank round. The APD has arrested Ernest McDonald, 66, in connection to the hoax. Lt. Wally Welch talks to press outside the federal building. Photo by Jonathan Welch
The Washington Post's highly-touted Top Secret America investigation, chronicling the explosion of secret government projects, includes a handy map feature that reveals classified government work at four Asheville locations, all within the federal office complex on Patton Avenue.
