SF COPWATCH is expanding to protest the ICE/ Migra patrols on our streets! Bring bullhorns, banners, signs and yr friends!
Please call 415.595.8251 if you see an ICE patrol or van on the streets and send us yr cell # so we can send you a text in case of ICE sightings. Repression against the poor, people of color and im/migrants will likely increase during the economic depression; please participate in defense organizing, even if only to pass the word of ICE on the streets or of police brutality. Email Iolmisha [at] cs.com if any questions.
Every Tuesday we meet up at Cafe Le Bohem, (on 16th near Mission), for about 1/2 hour, we go over plans and tactics, such as using bullhorns, banners and passing out "know yr rights" cards to make people aware of ICE's presence. Then monitor police calls w/ a scanner and document police activity. We also pass out fliers and talk to workers and residents about both our Copwatch and ICE rapid response teams.
Every Wednesday, SF_COPWATCH also monitors SFPD activity and ICE car check points in the Tenderloin District, corner of Hyde and Eddy starting point, at 1:30 pm for about 2 hours.
Also we meet every Friday, 6-8pm, at the Redstone Building
2940 16th Street Suite #209, 2nd flr. (corner of 16th and Capp.)
We meet up for about 1/2 hour then hit the streets. The night shift focuses on police abuse against the homeless, mostly self-medicating, mentally ill and "poverty crime" targets.
Please participate and donate. The SF_COPWATCH collective is just starting and needs more members and monitoring equipment to be successful in this very important defense work. Thank You, Gracias, Salamat
