Pacific Avenue Santa Cruz: The Joff Jones and Alex Skelton Report on Freedom in the USA
2 videos (11 minutes and 6 minutes) of Joff Jones and Alex Skeltons attempts to gather information from Santa Cruz Police regarding Municipal Ordinance 5.43.020, the "blue box" ordinance. Joff Jones and Alex Skelton were arrested Saturday April 16, 2016 on Pacific Avenue in Santa Cruz, CA for displaying their art and protest outside of a blue box and declining to participate in the citation program. The video is a compendium of footage taken on Pacific Avenue between April 20 and April 24, with two clips from April 16th, and one from April 5, 2016.
Artists Joff Jones and Alex Skelton were arrested Saturday April 16, 2016 on Pacific Avenue in Santa Cruz, CA for displaying their art and protest outside of a blue box and declining to participate in the citation program. They were told by their arresting Officers that the next offense would result in misdemeanor charges, and their belongings would be taken and held for evidence until after the court date. Joff and Alex returned to Pacific Avenue to cover their further interactions with the Police in what they say is a violation of their Constitutionally protected right to express themselves in the public forum and to peaceably assemble in protest of Municipal infringements on these Rights.
We were also arrested August 20th of 2015 on identical charges. The saga continues. More info here:

Still having problems with playback on some devices. Hopefully these files work for those folks. Again, first time using indybay. Thank you for the support !
