Please Distribute... Berkeley Copwatch Presents the Debut Film Screening of: "The Streets Are Watching" With Introduction by Cincinnati Copwatch founder Life Allah "The Streets are Watching" takes a fresh look at police accountability through the eyes of three communities; Denver, Cincinnati and Berkeley. Independent filmmaker, Jacob Crawford, weaves three cities responses to police brutality into a single tale of community empowerment and direct action. Within an amazing collection of real life footage of police conduct and misconduct, the film conveys basic legal concepts that can provide practical help to groups and individuals seeking a clearer understanding of their rights when dealing with police. The film is divided into sections that explain individual rights, tactics for documenting police activity, ideas for further action and organizing. In addition, Cincinnati Copwatch founding member, Life Allah, will share his insights on the formation of Copwatch in the wake of the Cincinnati unrest of April 2000 and programs for justice based in the Over The Rhine neighborhood. This event is a benefit for Berkeley Copwatch and is open to the public. Copies of the video will be available for purchase at the event.
