Last Night Do-It-Yourself New Year's Celebration

Permit-less People's Parade - Keeping Santa Cruz Weird for Another Year
Undaunted by civil rights violations last year by the Santa Cruz Police Department, this year's Last Night DIY Parade and Celebration enthusiasts returned in full force to take over the streets on New Year's Eve in Santa Cruz. imc_photo.gif Photos: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

Last year, the celebration erupted into the national headlines when it was discovered that Santa Cruz Police had violated the civil liberties of organizers by spying on their meetings for three months, gathering information about the group and engaging in other activities unrelated to the stated purpose of their investigation.

From the Last Night DIY website: "Last Night is a decentralized, collective, spontaneous, open, public New Year's Eve celebration, a completely organic event, organized and put on at a grassroots-level."
