At approximately 10:30 this morning, 2 FCC agents accompanied by at least a dozen federal marshalls and 2 Oakland police officers broke into the studio of Berkeley Liberation Radio and seized all broadcast gear. Left behind were a microphone, headphones, and legal documents including a copy of the seizure warrant. I spoke with Cap'n Fred, host of The World Cruise on BLR.

At approximately 10:30 this morning, 2 FCC agents accompanied by at least a dozen federal marshalls and 2 Oakland police officers broke into the studio of Berkeley Liberation Radio and seized all broadcast gear. Left behind were a microphone, headphones, and legal documents including a copy of the seizure warrant.

According to Gerald Smith, co-host of BLR's Slave Revolt Radio, "one man was in the station at the time and although he was pretty shook up, he was not arrested." The station began broadcasting at 104.1 FM in 1998, after Free Radio Berkeley was ordered off the air by a federal injunction. Plans are in the works for a demonstration at the Oakland Federal Building.
