Fusion Center National Day of Action Norwalk, CA

lapd-spyingToday over a hundred activists, many youth, gathered outside the Los Angeles Fusion Center to protest, as a day of national action against spying done on the people by the police. This is not just an “activist problem”. Students, artists, tourists, and every day people are having “Suspicious Activities Reports (SARs) filed against them for taking pictures, drawing local landmarks, taking videos, walking, doing pretty much anything, or acting in any way an officer may “using his or her judgement” deem “Suspicious”. An alarming number of these SARs are being filed against people of color, specifically targeting the black community.

The follow is video I shot today, from the protest, including speakers and skits. Please share these videos, inform yourself, and every one you come into contact with, about how your rights are violated by those whose jobs are supposedly “To Serve and Protect”. We all know that means capitalism, not the people.

Hours after this protest I learned LASD shot an innocent unarmed man who was trying to help a wounded neighbor out,  and wonder to myself how much more has to happen before more wake up to what the real dangers in the street are. THE POLICE!

No Justice No Peace: Kelly Thomas’s Murders Let Free

How the fuck were these violent criminals found not guilty? #JusticeForKellyThomas

How the fuck were these violent criminals found not guilty? #JusticeForKellyThomas

Another case of police brutality goes unpunished as the violent murders of Kelly Thomas were found not guilty in an Orange County court yesterday.

I am completely disgusted with this farce of a “legal system” we have in this country, as I cannot believe that anyone could view this footage and find them not guilty! Trigger warning: This is an extremely violent and brutal beating by the Fullerton Police, be aware before clicking this link!

Tonight over 100 people gathered tonight in solidarity with the Thomas family against the ruling, The LAist Magazine put together a piece on it with photos from live tweeters, and video.

The LA Times reports the FBI is now looking further into the case, as they had already begun to investigate in 2011 as to whether his rights were violated.

There are protests already being planned. Anonymous plans a protest Tues the 14th at 11am at the Fullerton Police Department https://www.facebook.com/events/607232352658522

We have also heard a community call out for Saturday the 18th at 10AM also at the Fullerton Police Department.

We must demand accountability, because obviously these kangaroo courts are not serving justice.

These monsters need to be held accountable for murders, brutal beatings, and psychological terror they have continued to perpetrate unabated against the people for far too long. Why are they not held accountable to the laws they are supposedly meant to uphold?

We live in a country that fears imaginary “terrorists” yet believe in police who are 100 times more likely to maim or kill you or someone you love. Anyone who supports these people also has blood on their hands.

I urge you to join these protests, as well as every protest for every victim. This is not ok, and our silence is consent! No more killer cops on our streets, or any streets!

RIP Kelly Thomas, we are going to keep fighting for justice.

Beit Iksa – Bab Al-Karama Video

In January 2013, the residents of Beit Iksa set up a new village, Bab Al-Karama as an act of resistance against the occupation. This video is a tribute to their struggle and their fight for freedom.

Police Brutality is on the Rise Nationwide

This past weekend here in Los Angeles, we joined together to celebrate the 6 month anniversary of Occupy Wall Street. It was terrible weather, we had a easy up hosting our welcome/food tent with literature and vegan chili, we had a tent with our peoples print lab being set up to screen print shirts, and a few other tents randomly set back against the fence. We were not blocking any walk ways, in fact DTLA is pretty quiet on weekends.

A officer entered, and was walking through the crowd shoulder checking everyone in his path, including myself. He was not a small man. He had stripes, as did many of the officers who later came to riot on us.

Someone climbed the fence into the small concrete park behind us, to get a drink from the drinking fountain. Not a great idea granted, but only a ticketing offense. They came on in force at that time, attacked the person who climbed the fence and all the protestors around him.

The following video shows a good portion of what happened that day. The arrests, our reactions, and the reality that peaceful protestors are being rioted upon by the police.

The world around us is quickly turning into a police state. We the citizens of planet earth are being controlled, or beat into submission. The people facilitating these beatings, have yet to realize the ones they serve do not serve them, they use them as nothing more than an expendable private army.

Another video I would like everyone to watch talks about this violence perpetrated upon the people. It shows clearly that you do not need to be breaking the law to be the victim of police brutality. Sadly I know this first hand. Please check out this video, and share it with everyone you know.

I have footage from M17 and also M19 where we were assaulted by the police. M19 was a rally against Police oppression. They targeted certain people and beat the rest of the people. Are we not to stand up to this? Are we not to defend ourselves with non violent tactics? Are we supposed to stop protesting and hide in our homes? Hell no. Get up, get out there and see first hand what the police in your community are doing. They won’t police themselves so we need to start watching them, and protecting ourselves and each other.
