Community Members Return to Parking Lot #4 Alongside Farmer's Market

Santa Cruz Community Members Outraged at Police State During Farmer's Market
From SC-IMC's open-publishing calendar: "The police and the city council claim that the escalating issues at Wednesday's Farmer's Market are the result of complaints about the drummers. Instead of dealing directly with the complaints, they have turned the market into a police state. Please attend the City Council meeting this Tuesday at 3pm to support the request to rescind the poorly-written, ambiguous 15-minute parking lot law. Last Wednesday cost the taxpayers over $5,000 to stop people from DRUMMING!"

Comments on the newswire by "brent is my name," "ElderHermit," "Rise up!" and others assert that the community will return to Parking Lot #4 (Cedar and Cathcart) on September 24th. Here are some of the comments: 1) "I'll be back to drum there next wednesday... just like I've done for years." 2) "I plan to be at the farmer's market. And I am telling friends. I am glad to see people standing up for themselves." 3) "Everyone should be preparing for Wednesday. We need to protect our rights and show support for those that have stood up putting there lives in turmoil, sacrificing themselves for our rights. THANKS WES! We Know who you are! We see through the lies. We will not be intimidated! We will stand up."
