Anarchist Reportback from Ferguson

Boston, 31.08.2014 23:08

Went to Ferguson last week, here is what I saw. Several people have asked me to write about what I found in Ferguson today. Here is my brief dehydrated tired scribble before bed. Do not judge me I literally just typed this out. Grief, pride and anger is the short answer.

After 90 Percent Decline, Federal Protection Sought for Monarch Butterfly

Santa Cruz, CA, 31.08.2014 22:53

Environmental groups filed a legal petition on August 26 to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service seeking Endangered Species Act protection for monarch butterflies, which have declined by more than 90 percent in under 20 years. During the same period it is estimated that these once-common iconic orange and black butterflies may have lost more than 165 million acres of habitat - an area about the size of Texas - including nearly a third of their summer breeding grounds.

Santa Cruz Police and First Alarm Brutalize and Arrest People for Being Black and Homeless

Santa Cruz, CA, 30.08.2014 22:54

Yannidies Brown writes: Today, August 21, 2014, I, Yannidies Brown, have just not only witnessed, but experienced, police brutality. It started roughly at about nine o'clock in the morning when my brother Rogiers Brown, my fiance Christopher Wuerfel, and I were at an empty parking lot waiting on a ride. An SCPD officer, Bradly Barnett, approached my brother Rogiers telling him that he needs to "get the fuck out of the parking lot" and "I'm going to write you a ticket."



Ex-Santa Cruz Patch Editor Now Selling Mace to Senior Citizens

Santa Cruz, CA, 30.08.2014 22:54

Former Santa Cruz Patch editor Brad Kava, who is still a journalism teacher at Cabrillo College, is now selling a device he invented that offers senior citizens the ability to secure a pepper spray can to their canes. He has named it: "Cane-O-Mite." It is essentially a holster for mace, and the Indiegogo campaign and Youtube video produced to market it feel like Kava is preying on the fears of the elderly. He is even citing an increase in news reporting on crime as a justification in his sales pitch for the product, saying "everyone who follows the news knows how bad it [crime against senior citizens] can get."

Police action against Bristol Indymedia

United Kingdom, 28.08.2014 23:00

Bristol Indymedia reported on 27th August 2014 that:

The Police have physically accessed the Bristol Indymedia server.

Last week we heard from our web hosts that the police had a court order to access the Bristol Indymedia server. We don’t know for sure, but assume that our web hosts have complied with the order and given the police this access.

We consider this server to be compromised, users should assume that from this point on the Police have access to the IP address of anyone accessing this site.

In light of this it is unlikely that open publishing of news items will ever be re-enabled as it would require complete re-installation of the server.

We are going to leave the calendar on for now, but note that it is likely that IP addresses are now being recorded and accessed by the Police.

Activists Protest Talk by Israeli Consul General at Temple Beth El

Santa Cruz, CA, 26.08.2014 22:52

On August 21, Santa Cruz activists picketed outside of a talk at Temple Beth El about Israel and Gaza, given by Dr. Andy David, Israel's Consul General for Northern California and the Pacific Northwest. The topic of the talk was "Operation Protective Edge," Israel's name for their most recent military assault on Gaza, which began on July 8 and has killed thousands of Palestinians. To greet those entering the talk, a series of large signs with the names of those killed in the war was displayed near the temple's entrance, and individuals held a large banner on Soquel Drive that read "Sick of Gaza Massacre?"



Demonstration in Salinas turns into Copwatch-in-Action

Santa Cruz, CA, 25.08.2014 22:52

On August 17, the Direct Action Monterey Network joined a group of residents in Salinas at a demonstration against police violence. Four unarmed Latino men have been killed by Salinas police since March. Although the event was intended to be a community forum, the Cesar Chavez Public Library refused to let the group use their facilities. The gathering was interrupted when someone came over to tell the group that a man was being arrested across the street, but cops were prevented from arresting him by the newly formed local Cop Watch.



In the Face of Repression-- Organizing in Spite of the Surveillance State

In the Face of Repression // Organizing in Spite of the Surveillance State

September 6, 12:00pm

Portland State University
Smith Memorial Student Union
Room 296/8

The AETA labels animal activists as terrorists and is one of the most unconstitutional laws since COINTELPRO. In response to new indictments under the AETA, The National Weekend of Action Against the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA) has been called as a show of solidarity, to increase the visibility of ongoing counter-intelligence, and to encourage activists to organize and resist in the face of repression.

In Portland, a coalition of groups are coordinating an afternoon of presenters and panels to discuss the AETA, and to use it as a platform to connect the more expansive processes and histories of repression that are incurred by systematically marginalized, colonized, frontlines, and resistance communities. We want animal and earth liberation activists to understand that all captivity must be ended. It is important to underscore the reality that many communities are always under state repression, not just so-called "activists" communities. It is imperative to stress the need for communities to show solidarity with each other to increase capacity and resilience against surveillance, state violence, and the prison industry. We must reject the misconception that prison or surveillance serve any sort of positive function and instead recognize repression for what it really is: a process engrained into colonial-capitalist society.

Santa Cruz Rally and March in Solidarity with the People of Ferguson

Santa Cruz, CA, 24.08.2014 22:52

A rally and march in solidarity with the people of Ferguson, Mo. was held in downtown Santa Cruz on August 17. On August 9, Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown in broad daylight in front of numerous witnesses. Michael was reportedly unarmed and holding his hands up while attempting to surrender, saying "don't shoot" when he was gunned down. Since that time, protests in support of justice for the Missouri teenager have erupted all over the world.



Egg Producer Permanently Removed From Industry in Settlement

LA Fields Two Marches Against Police Executions

LA, 22.08.2014 22:53

As part of a vast national response in 37 cities to The Ferguson, Missouri shooting of 18 year old Michael Brown, Los Angeles saw two protests over two days. Citing LA's own tragic losses and police abuse of Ezell Ford, Omar Abrego, Damon Jackson and Barry Montgomery the streets hosted two wildcat marches. The first was on Sunday August 17th outside of LAPD Headquarters and the second was the following day in front of both the Ford family home and the Abrego family home in South Central Los Angeles.

The story of police abuse is being seen by most as a a black male issue but these crowds gave pause to that notion. The protesters were a very mixed crowd both racially and culturally.

There were families of the slain and abused men holding large photos of their brothers, fathers and sons.

Three of the deceased men were challenged mentally. Two of them Ezell Ford and Damon Jackson were killed by Los Angeles police while a young schizophrenic named Barry Montgomery was beaten and hidden inside the Los Angeles jail system for days while his family searched for him frantically.

The police response was very light. There were bike cops and motorcycle police along with a fair amount of regular LAPD at the first action. Some streets were roped off while others streets were quickly blocked to traffic as the crowd sporadically wound it's way wildcat style through downtown. The response was essentially the opposite of the Ferguson display of force.

Historic Victory Against Israeli Apartheid at the Port of Oakland

San Francisco Bay Area, 21.08.2014 23:08

In a major victory against the Israeli Zim Lines shipping company, their ship the Piraeus was forced to leave the Port of Oakland after a mass march, four days of picketing, and the refusal of ILWU Local 10 and ILWU Local 34 to work the ship despite attempts by the Oakland police department and Alameda County deputies to break up the ongoing pickets. The Zim ship unloaded only a small portion of cargo before giving up and heading back out to sea. Oakland's "Block the Boat" victory represents a historic first for the worldwide Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) movement.



Ferguson. Over one week in.

Boston, 21.08.2014 23:08

Reposted from Anti-State STL What began as a protest movement after 10 days of sustained defiance, has taken a couple shaky steps towards revolt. The situation here is still fluid and ripe with potential. Locally, people are surprised that similar unrest hasn’t sparked off in other cities. If it were to spread, the scope here would likely widen. It’s difficult to get a sense of how people outside the metro area interpret what’s happening here. What follows are some observations from St Louis residents and participants in the struggle who might give a clearer picture of this strange new reality.

Demonstrators at Sam Farr Fundraiser Oppose Congress Member's Support of Israeli War

Santa Cruz, CA, 17.08.2014 22:56

A demonstration to protest U.S. involvement in Israel's attacks on Gaza was held on August 14 outside of a fundraiser for Congress Member Sam Farr in Santa Cruz. On August 1 Farr voted, along with most of the House of Representatives, to give Israel an additional $200 million this year to fund their "Iron Dome" missile defense system. One sign held outside of the fundraiser asked, "Where is the Iron Dome for Gaza?"



Video: Portland Rally in Solidarity With the People of Ferguson

Portland, 17.08.2014 22:56

Portland action on a national day of solidarity with the people of Ferguson Missouri, where an unarmed teenager was recently gunned down by the local police.

Solidarity Rally with Ferguson

This excerpt from the speakers at the Portland event is from the remarks by Jo Ann Hardesty, long time activist for human rights and opposing abuse of power by Portland Police.

Jo Ann exhorts the crowd not to be confused by the outcry against the militarization of the police. Though this is a tangential issue, the bottom line is in reality the open season on people of color everywhere in this country. "This isn't about what weapons they have; this is about a mind set. This is about a mind set that devalues black life... .when did it become okay for police in the U.S. to just willy nilly say, 'I was scared and shoot someone 28 times.'"

And further, i don't want you to get confused, because I understand they are asking the Federal government to investigate the latest killing, Michael Brown... ..who do you think gave those military weapons to the police department? Don't get confused. This about whether or not you stand for justice This is about whether or not you value every black, brown, white red, yellow life on this planet."

Hardesty eloquently continues to address the wider issue of injustice in the United States of America and what the citizens are going to have to do to shift the current to justice and respect for human life.



Rebellion in Ferguson Over Murder of Michael Brown

San Francisco Bay Area, 16.08.2014 23:02

WeCopwatch is reporting for Indybay from Ferguson, Missouri, where on August 9 a Ferguson police officer shot down and murdered 18-year-old local resident Michael Brown in broad daylight in front of numerous witnesses. In a town that is 67% African American, and constantly the subject of racist police stops and citations by a Ferguson police department made of up 53 officers, of whom only three are African American, the community was outraged by the murder. After days of protests and violent racist attacks by police against demonstrators, the focus has shifted to the police cover-up of the murder. After previously refusing to release the incident report on the shooting and the name of the shooting officer, Ferguson police have finally released his name, Darren Williams, but instead of releasing their report on the shooting, they ramped up a smear campaign against Mike Brown.
