Report from SCPD Corner - by Robert Norse
After some lively debate, the HUFF meeting voted to endorse a "mellow" but visible presence on the corner of Laurel and Center Streets in front of the SCPD parking lot. We wanted to go forward with the presence near the SCPD to encourage the rest of the community that our police are not above criticism and accountability--or should not be at any rate.

She reiterated that Shasta Dam is “a weapon of mass destruction” against the Winnemem Wintu and said the idea of dams is a “horrible archaic project.” Mark Miyoshi and Chief Caleen Sisk watch ...

Terrorism, COINTELPRO, and the Black Panthers -Interview w/ law prof. Angela A Allen-Bell - by Angola 3 News
In her new law journal article, “Activism Unshackled & Justice Unchained,” law professor Angela A. Allen-Bell concludes that the US government’s multi-faceted response to the BPP, primarily within the framework of the FBI’s infamous COINTELPRO, was indeed the very definition of terrorism. Bell writes that “the magnitude of the unwarranted harm done to the BPP has not yet been explored in an appropriate fashion. Much like a fugitive, it has eluded justice.” As a result, “the FBI'...
