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 oppo...

text Phone Privacy? by anonymous
I'm guessing the big-dogs probably have a way to make private phone calls; so I'm wondering what kind of person I should ask about the successful methods. I mean, I could ask a PI, get to know a phone company technician and offer an honorarium for good info, etc. I'll bet some people still have privacy. How can I approach such people and ask the right questions?...

text UC Gave $600,000 for Hate Speech, Plans Week of More Hate Speech by California Taxpayer
The public university, the University of California, gave $600,000 to promote hate speech from 33 year old mentally ill fascist Zionist Ben Shapiro on 9/14/17, who thinks people who are poor made the choice to be poor, women should be denied abortions in all circumstances, transgender is mental illness and “Arabs like to bomb crap and live in open sewage,” An entire week of this incitement to destroy humanity is planned at UC Berkeley starting September 24, courtesy the taxpayers. Soon, ther...

image Anti Police-Terror Project statement on Berkeley Police use of pepper spray 480_berkeley-police-pepper-spray_1.jpg by APTP
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....

image What to Make of Germany’s Ban of Linksunten Indymedia 480_freiburg-linksunten-indymedia-solidarity_1.jpg by Greg Macdougall
The criminalization of radical movement media like linksunten reveals the threat our communications face under increasingly authoritarian conditions. Various Indymedias have seen this pattern in other forms since the network’s founding at the 1999 protests in Seattle against the World Trade Organization – raids, seizures of webservers, and attacks on Indymedia centres established to cover summit protests. The German case indicates the extent to which existing legal structures can be harnessed...

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....

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...
