Sun Aug 8 2010 (Updated 08/10/10)Noise Demonstration at Santa Cruz County Jail
Sun Aug 8 2010 (Updated 08/10/10)Social Control in Santa Cruz: ICE, Imprisonment, and White Supremacy
Fuck ICE writes: "On Friday evening, August 6, we gathered outside the Santa Cruz County Jail to demonstrate our solidarity with the people locked up inside and express our hatred of imprisonment. About 30-40 of us stood in the middle of Blaine Street, next to both the main County Jail (where 336 people are locked up) and the Women’s Facility (21 people). We banged on drums made from 55-gallon barrels with the intention of creating as much noise as possible to breach the prison walls. Our portable sound system blasted insurgent hip-hop, including N.W.A’s 'Fuck the Police' and the Geto Boys’ 'G-Code.' We carried two banners stating, 'Free All Prisoners' and 'Chinga la Migra/Fuck I.C.E.'
"Chants included 'We Are All Illegal, Todos Somos Ilegales,' 'Chinga la Migra, Y La Policia,' and 'Revolt on the Outside, Revolt on the Inside!' We also told jokes at the expense of cops and jail guards. At one point, as the jail guards stood on the roof of the jail watching us, people started chanting 'Jump! Jump! Jump!' We also used a megaphone to attempt to speak directly to the prisoners and let them know that they are not forgotten and that they have support from the outside."
