text Stop The War Convention In Our Community (Facing Urban Shield 2014) - by Jameson Johan
Join the call to end the militarization of police in our communities, around California, and the United States as a whole.

text SCPD Message to African-Americans, “Get Your Black Ass Out Of My City" - by Dennis Etler
The same tactics of racial profiling and police intimidation used by cops in Ferguson, MO occur right here in Santa Cruz.

text Horrors of American Human Rights Record - by Glass Houses
People who live in glass houses should not throw stones. The American human rights record would make Hitler proud. China has been producing an annual report on American human rights that Americans should read.

text The Zip Code Solution - by Indy VT
I lived through the riots in Los Angeles in 1992. I know what to do. Only allow cops to work and patrol in the zip code they live in. Government is of the people, by the people and for the people. There is no more intense form of government than when you are being shot at or handcuffed and deprived of life or liberty.
