On September 4th supporters and community activists gathered at U.C. Berkeley to protest the UC police and FBI raid on the Long-Haul. The demonstration was monitored by at least one FBI agent and a couple of UC police officers.

according to the demonstrators this is the agent who raided the Long-Haul last week. he did not even try to hide the fact that he is monitoring the demonstration.

That is a lot of tree sit people attending. thanks.

The local left-libertarian community center that hosts a lot of fun movie nights, gourmet free food distribution, a nationally known quarterly newspaper, and a free computer space for the homeless.

My question is, does the guy with large-plaid shirt in the video of the computer seizure? I see the two clear FBI agents in the Dodge Charger, and lots of photos of UCPD. Is the crew cut man shown?

The problem, according to the mainstream media is that someone used the long Hauls free public computers to make a "terrorist" threat against UCB.
Does anyone know the other side of the story?
If a threat was made from Berkeley Public, would they raid the Library and confiscate the Library's computers?
Just wondering

*Gourmet free food*?

Wow, that only counts if you consider fermentation your sole definition of gourmet.

Hell, that makes my compost bin *gourmet*.

Every time I've shown up, they have a big stack of Cheese Board pizzas obtained from the so-called 'Gourmet ghetto' of Berkeley. They also have boxes of those $3 juices with wheat grass and mango or whatever, sealed guacamole tins, and $3.50 vegetarian sandwiches marketed at various delis. I guess they also cook vats of FoodnotBombs. Once Herman brought a case of decent wine and a sushi platter because he is generous.

That guy is Det. Wade Mcadam, he is the main detective of the oak grove protest. Some believe he is a fed working under the U.C. and given the importance of UC Berkeley to national security, i wouldn't be surprised...

yes, I know Detective Wade very well from many years.. and i have asked him extensively what he does, he does work for the federal government. on December 4th of 2006 he flew out from his home base in washington DC or nearby to start his new job detecting crimes at the new berkeley tree sit. he stalks people and their myspaces to see if he can put anyone in jail for anything they've ever done. and he has to many of my friends, and im sure hes trying to find another one now by ordering this raid at the Long Haul. Sorry long haul. i love you. (and i have eaten amazing fresh gourmet indian food there a couple of times, you gotta go on the right nights, kids)

he has a league of berkeley cops that work with his direction, if he ever has any, (that plaid shirt is over-used and too warm to be wearing there, plus it doesnt really make him fit in like he's trying to) , all in trying to stop people from terrorizing... people with money.

and hes lonely, all the women cops hate how much he tries to get their numbers and flirt with them.

girls, taunt away. itll kill him.

Yeah - it's feasible. At another UC, the newspaper said that the FBI was called in when some young people (not even identified as students) went popping tires and scratching paint of pickup trucks at a street by campus, so it seems like even vandalism that isn't of national significance can be assessed to be worth their time. Meanwhile, 80 people will get their bank accounts empties after their PIN number is skimmed at an ARCO station's ATM machine, but who has time to fight organized crime.

Its not a common name here, but its more common in Asia.
Rahula was the only son of Sidharrtha.
I bet you already knew that.
In the future, I'll use my initial, too.
