For Immediate Release:
Thursday, July 10, 2008
The residents of the Pitch Pipe Infoshop recently became aware of the existence of a hidden surveillance camera attached to a utility pole across from their house. The camera is hidden inside a box which is meant to resemble a standard electrical box. There are no other boxes like this on any of the utility poles in the immediate area. As the below picture shows, there is clearly a "camera-resembling-object" resting behind the transparent surface at the base of the box.
It is uncertain which law enforcement agency is behind this camera. This camera exists, though, as you can clearly see. Perhaps this camera has seen the residents of the Infoshop playing with the neighbors children or having picnics with the family next door. Perhaps it has seen the residents organizing a show in the neighborhood park in which families and children from across the neighborhood attended during a beautiful, sunny day. Perhaps, maybe, the camera has seen the residents acting like everyone in the neighborhood acts: like humans.
The residents of the Pitch Pipe Infoshop are not criminals and they are not terrorists, no matter what the government may try to say. They are normal people, leading normal lives. They are interacting with their community and have the support of that community. They are wonderful people who leave the door open to anyone who wishes to come in ('law enforcement' excluded).
Keep fighting the good fight and do not let them scare you. They have nothing on anyone and are doing these things because of one thing: fear. Fear of the population they have abused for far too long.
