Dear friends, allies, and combatants in Santa Cruz:

TAKE OUT YOUR HAIRSPRAY AND YOUR LIGHTER!

We are shocked, pissed, disbelieving, and more than ever motivated to continue our occupation by hearing about the end of the occupation at the UCSC. Is there anything else to say now than a simple, "FUCK THE POLICE"?

Well, there is. What you have been doing is a great statement against the society and the structures that are, essentially, excluding everything except the economics of capital. You, and also we, are reclaiming life in its basic social structures, and to end an occupation can never hinder the movements of minds.

For this reason, we don't doubt that there will be actions following this occupation. We refuse to give the assholes back what is ours. There is no way to destroy utopias. We want to emphasize that it's impossible to demolish the worldwide networks that have already been established and in which you are still embedded by throwing 70 people out of a public space. This is ridiculous. But as we all know, the structures behind this are neither ridiculous nor ignorable, and are worth fighting against. We seek to push the university struggle to its limits!

As the Academy of Refusal stands in solidarity with all occupiers and related persons, we offer help as far as possible, including financial help.

Reclaim your education!
Reclaim your body!
Reclaim time and space!
Reclaim your life!

No border, no nation, no police station!
No nation, no border, fight law and order!

In solidarity,
yours,
Academy of Refusal!
