Working Within the System is Not Working
On July 5th, Santa Cruz activists protested against the city's failure to resolve the Santa Cruz Police Department spying scandal. Instead of taking steps to protect civil rights, the Santa Cruz City Council and SCPD have worked together to approve policies filled with blatant first amendment violations. The SCPD have not only been cleared of spying on Last Night Santa Cruz meetings, but now have explicit permission to videotape you inside or outside of your home, audio record you, listen to your phone calls, look at the mail you are receiving, read your email, make notes about your organization, tail you, monitor your website, subscribe to your email lists, and examine your membership lists.
