Shut it down- another Friday at the recruiter’s office in the Berkeley Police State.
Shut it down- another World Cant Wait Friday at the recruiter’s office in the Berkeley Police State.
After passing kids from Berkeley High and other activist a one day course in-Pig 101 or better known as the Police are Not Here to Serve and Protect Us-For Beginners: http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2008/02/12/18478588.php
and after attacking the World Cant Wait demo last Friday http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnMlYY7he8w
the BPD decided to expand their protection of the state by actually standing in front of the recruiting office and guaranteeing that the recruiters are allowed to deceive and solicit kids for the advancement of the American Empire (referred to by some people as “free speech” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMEWflz-L8I).
After a rape of a high school girl by an American soldier in Okinawa, the Women of Okinawa issued a statement.
I was intrigued by this man, who seemed to represent some advanced culture, a society of people who are free and brave (so unlike the rest of the primitive world). I wandered into his planet asking whether Iraq was invaded by his free and brave society to control the oil market. I asked him why his free society has a long history of organizing coups against democratically elected presidents while supporting dictators, or if the wealth of his country is connected to third world exploitation, exploitation made possible by the U.S. military. Apparently in La La Land (the capitol of the land of the free and brave) these things are justified or do not exist.
At this point the BPD beat the marchers and arrested a couple of people for using bullhorns (I did not manage to take pictures of that, Copwatch and other people did. They will publish their video/photos soon).
