Redwood Curtain CopWatch

Know Your Rights Workshop- Saturday, March 13, 2010


Do you know what to do if you’re stopped by the police? Do your children? Are you tired of your rights being violated? This workshop focuses on the law "on the street” — what your rights are and how cops try to trick you out of them. We want to share strategies to ‘survive’ police encounters.


Tues night Film Screening: Sir! No Sir!

Tuesday, March 24th

PARC is in Old Town Eureka
2nd St, between "D" & "E" in wooden complex, 2nd floor

ALL AGES WELCOME.  Snacks will be shared.  And discussion too!


"Where do I go?" Cops arrest people for EXISTING poor

Recently, some of us witnessed 4 (that's right FOUR) Eureka Police Officers arresting a woman for sitting in a covered bus stop late at night with only a blanket in her hand.  Three vehicles, two of them K-9 units, were there.  The officers were: Adam Laird (Badge #40), Kurt Rulofson (new guy), Ed Wilson (Badge #96), and Mike Guy (Badge #63).   The woman asked the officers, "Where do I go?"    She told them "I didn't do anything."  But, you see, if you sit somewhere in public at night, when you have no other place to go, you get arrested.

Cops Lie: Know Your Rights


Their job is to Collect or Create Information to arrest you and help prosecute you. They’re not trying to win justice or help you.

Learn How to Copwatch!

This workshop will go over:

  • a history of copwatch in this local area
