Upbeat and greeted by a very enthusiastic crowd, Chelsea Manning made a surprise appearance at the March Against White Supremacy in Berkeley on September 23. Barely four months since she was released from prison for her incredibly brave act of conscience, Chelsea acknowledged defying naysayers who discourage her from speaking in public. It was only a week ago that the CIA cowed Harvard University into revoking her visiting fellowship. Chelsea emphasizes the importance of not relying on leade...

text Statement on Berkeley City Council Resolution to Pepper Spray Protesters by NLG-SF
The one thing Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin, the Berkeley Police Department and City Council got right at the Monday afternoon Council meeting was that violence has indeed come to the streets of Berkeley. But rather than using these critical times as an opportunity to have a larger conversation with Berkeley’s people of color, LGBTQIA, Jews, Muslims and other communities who are being targeted by white nationalists/neo-Nazis/white supremacists — the City has instead utilized this as an opport...

On September 10th, at the Berkeley City Council meeting, a 1997 ban that prevents police from using pepper spray at protests, was modified to give police limited power to do so. This is little more than the continuation of an agenda that criminalizes dissent, upholds the tenets of white supremacy and empowers the frontline enforcers of white supremacy (law enforcement) to repress the masses....

text Stacked Deck Stay-Away Law Expansion Promises More Pain for Poor Outside by Robert Norse
Coming up today at City Council on the noon agenda (unusually early) is Item, #14. It may come up within an hour by 1 PM if not before. MC 13.08.100 exponentially expands the time a cop or ranger can unilaterally order a person to leave an area and not return. The vastly expanded area includes the Pogonip, Arana Gulch, and Moore Creek. The law is billed as a "School Safety" law, though the vast majority of the area covered is much further than 300' from a school....

ROLLING FAST to Repeal Santa Cruz Sleeping Ban. The anti-homeless Sleeping Ban in Santa Cruz has been challenged since its inception some two decades ago. Endorsing winning candidates has not worked.

video Exposing OPD and ICE Lies About the Raid of West Oakland Latina Home (video/mp4 2.9mb) by Dave Id
ICE's Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) unit raided the home of a West Oakland Latina family on August 16. Oakland police claim their only role was blocking street traffic while the raid was conducted, but it's hard to take anything Oakland police say at face value when both ICE and the Oakland police department have lied about the incident. Defensive about the raid, Oakland police first smeared the family with a salacious and blatantly untrue allegation while the raid was still in pro...

On Wednesday, August 16, at about 7am, a convoy of unmarked federal vehicles rolled up in West Oakland and over two dozen armed Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) agents demanded entry and stormed a Latina home, supposedly in service of a warrant for the "human trafficking of juveniles." Oakland police participated by blocking the street to through traffic, despite legislation passed by the Oakland city council in July rescinding the department's authorization to work with ICE on immigra...
