imageCity of Sacramento drops all cases against Occupy defendants
by Dan Bacher
“This case is about abuses of government power. The City had its opportunity to prosecute misdemeanor charges against Ms. Coke and the other Occupy protestors for political speech, and Ms. Coke would have been able to put on her Constitutional defenses in that forum,” said Patrick Soluri, a pro bono attorney for Ms. Coke.

imageMLPA 'Initiative' – Bagley-Keene and First Amendment Violations
by David Gurney
We are currently suing the MLPAI and its “I-Team” for the civil rights violations of the unlawful arrest. The corrupt, privately funded “Initiative” to create so-called "marine protected areas" has regressed into defending their past illegal policies and actions, wasting tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees with the Attorney General’s Office, at taxpayer expense, trying defend the indefensible – instead of coming clean with an apology.

imageOccupy Sacramento tree sitter released from county jail Tuesday
by Dan Bacher
The crackdown on the First Amendment by the cities of Sacramento, Oakland, Los Angeles, San Francisco and others across the country is apparently part of a nationally coordinated campaign by the Department of Homeland Security and other federal law enforcement agencies in collaboration with local police departments, as exposed by author Naomi Wolf in her November 25 article in the UK Guardian. Steven Joseph Carter, known as "Joe," spent five days in jail for occupying a tree. Photo courtes...

"Police did not use pepper spray to break-up the protest, but used very brutal 'pain' holds on some of those arrested," said Cres Vellucci, Occupy Sacramento spokesman. "Those actions are being investigated. The local ACLU office has been contacted." Arms linked in solidarity, peacefully assembling. Photos by Occupy Sacramento....

"We are not surprised, and we are not demoralized," said Cres Vellucci, a legal team member with Occupy Sacramento and vice-chair of the Sacramento Chapter of the ACLU. 'It's very unusual to win a TRO in the first place. We can still have our day in court later. Cesar Chavez Park is a people's park, and the Bill of Rights is not moot even if the city says so."...
