Two Arrested Near Farmer's Market, But the Beats Continued On
by ~Bradley (bradley [at] riseup.net)

On September 17th, two people were arrested in Parking Lot #4 alongside the Santa Cruz Farmer's Market. Police lined Cathcart Street displaying batons and a riot control gun, but quickly drove away, while seditious beats emanated from the drum circle below the trees. People continued to play music, share food and enjoy their time in Parking Lot #4 without further disturbance from the police or fencing.

This person, known as "Fox," was blocking the video cameras of HUFF and SCCTV as they filmed the drum circle. He points at people, tells them to fuck off, and then yells that they are undercover cops.

I'm usually able to walk away from this person without more than verbal insults, but this time he actually smacked my camera right after this photo was taken. Fox has a long history in Santa Cruz, and I don't much about Fox, but his actions are completely uncalled for.
