About the Santa Cruz 11:
The Santa Cruz Eleven are local community members who have been charged with an unprecedented variety of offenses arising from their alleged involvement with the occupation of a long-time vacant bank building late last fall, 2011.

These defendants are either journalists, members of our local press, and/or activists supportive of the Occupy movement.

Hundreds of individuals, if not more, entered and exited the bank building during the 75-hour occupation, including local elected officials, corporate press and “citizen journalist” bloggers. Only the Santa Cruz Eleven have been charged.

§Santa Cruz 11 Fundraiser

There’s going to be a fundraiser for the SC11 & Desiree Foster at INDIA JOZE starring RICK WALKER & TOM NODDY.

India Joze and the co-defendants are hosting this community gathering to bring awareness to the SC11 and to help out Desire Foster who is experiencing financial hardships. Grant Wilson says “Desiree Foster is the youngest person (of the SC-11) charged with 2 Felonies she’s 19 yrs old. She has been caring for her mother – diagnosed with a serious form of cancer. If that wasn’t enough trauma for a 19 year old, in early February, without any advance notice, Desiree was arrested in her mother’s home, handcuffed, taken to jail & later released on $5000 bail. As a result, Desiree tried unsuccessfully, to commit suicide. Once again, it makes me deeply question the ethics & motives of District Attorney Bob Lee. You would think that a good District Attorney, anywhere in the country, would be focused on confronting and reducing suffering and crime in their community. But, in this situation, it seems as though there’s a serious miscarriage of justice. Our DA is, in fact, causing suffering! The event happens Sunday July 1st 3pm – 6pm at India Joze 418 Front St. Santa Cruz, CA

The Santa Cruz Eleven are local community members who have been charged with an unprecedented variety of offenses arising from their alleged involvement with the occupation of a long-time vacant bank building late last fall, 2011.These defendants are either journalists, members of our local press, and/or activists supportive of the Occupy movement. The Santa Cruz Eleven defendants were participating in constitutionally protected activities either as news gatherers, observers, or as supporters, including a mediator between police and activists inside the occupied building. Hundreds of individuals, if not more, entered and exited the bank building during the 75-hour occupation, including local elected officials, corporate press and “citizen journalist” bloggers. Only the Santa Cruz Eleven have been charged, scapegoating those few who’re recognizable to police who never conducted an investigation of who actually broke into and/or damaged the building.

§Tom Noddy's Tornado Bubble

Forty years ago, Tom Noddy bought some dime store bubbles as a source of cheap entertainment. He has since become a bubble troubadour, traveling around the world to learn all there is to know about the art and science of blowing bubbles. He talks to physicists, mathematicians, chemists, biologists, architects, magicians and kids.

It was Tom who discovered Eiffel Plasterer in Indiana, the now deceased blower of long-lived bubbles. It was Tom who was summoned to perform for Johnny Carson on the Tonight Show, as well as to London and Paris for similar performances. Clearly, scientists are not the only people fascinated by bubbles.

Noddy says, “I have the same rapt attention whether I show my art at a logger’s bar on the Olympic Peninsula, at the Santa Cruz County Jail, at a child care center or at a university. The fascination is universal. Bubbles touch the child that each of us carries within.”
