a partial POLICE STATE UPDATE

The Police state has leapt forward in the last year on every level. At the federal level we now have unmanned drones flying over our cities and states courtesy of the CIA. http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/2012/0616/Drones-over-America.-Are-they-spying-on-you

We have the codification in law of indefinite detention without trial. When the current president signed the NDAA National Defense Authorization Act he signed a law that would allow for the arrest and indefinite detention of citizens without trial.   http://www.aclu.org/blog/tag/ndaa

The government had been doing this to the undocumented for years in detention centers run by ICE in the U.S. and by the CIA and Military abroad. http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message1620097/pg1

We have the Justice department conspiring with local government to deprive patients of their life saving medicine. The Hummingbird dispensary was driven out of business and the city still will not permit others to fill the need for cannabis based treatments in the community.

The local government has gone to the extreme of further criminalizing sleep in the summer of 2012, making it a misdemeanor to sleep outside in the city.

They were following in the footsteps of the county board of supervisors that had used a phony emergency to outlaw dissent at the courthouse. 

The county action was a reaction to their inability to respond to the issues exposed by Occupy Eureka. The District Attorney and other county government conspired to create a climate of fear about the protest and then used violent repression to remove the people temporarily from in front of the courthouse. http://www.times-standard.com/localnews/ci_20271861/humboldt-supervisors-enact-urgency-ordinance-protest-hours-limited?source=pkg

The county refusal to address the problems that the Occupy Movement planted on their doorstep is why the police state thrives. http://www.humboldt.edu/ccrp/total-population-below-poverty-level-redwood-coast-region

In what might be the most egregious affront the City of Eureka has hired Murl Harpham to be the police chief. The hiring is illegal. He is over 65 and has worked for EPD for more than 25 years. Both require his mandatory retirement. He is also When a local activist came to the council meeting to bring this criminal act by the city to the attention of the public she was censored on the public access broadcast and the city website.

Why The National Defense Authorization Act Now?

WHY THE NDAA NOW?

By Marti Hiken and Luke Hiken  January 6, 2012

Barack Obama just signed into law one of the most repressive and right-wing pieces of legislation ever passed in the history of the country: the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). It allows the military, a.k.a. the Pentagon, to determine who is a “terrorist” and to detain that person in prison, indefinitely, without trial, under its jurisdiction. It makes no difference whether the person is a U.S. citizen or a foreign “enemy combatant.”

Those Who Ignore the Past Are Bound to REPEAT IT -from PEOPLE PROJECT blog

This is from a July 6, 2005 PLAZOID. The Plazoid was a brilliant independent, self-published pamphlet/zine that circulated in Arcata in the mid 2000's.

 

SOON Nazi authorities and the police began to consign members of other groups to the new camps: homosexual men arrested as criminal offenders; Jehovah's Witnesses who refused to obey demands to cease their activities; women accused of prostitution; people labeled "asocial" because they were homeless, begged, or for some other reason did not fit into Nazi society.

 

IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING ATTACK ON WOUNDED KNEE- from AIM Santa Barbara

May 2, 2010
To the Original Peoples of the Fourth World and all International Press Services:

At high noon today US Army helicopters of the US Seventh Cavalry air division attempted to land their Blackhawk aircraft upon Lakota Sacred Burial grounds in South Dakota. The presence of military aircraft from this unit... See More is a sad and insulting reminder of the slaughter of more than 300 American Aboriginals on December 29,1890 when soldiers of the US 7th Cavalry gunned down more than 300 Aboriginal Minneconjou Lakota refugee children, women, infants and the elderly at what is now called Wounded Knee in South Dakota Indian Country. The military then left the bodies of their victims to decay unburied in the driving snow.
