Got this tonite on the Iboga list - just to show that we're not the only ones facing persecution.

HI all,
This report doesn't actually discuss drugs, but due to all the druggies in the US who face police brutality on a daily basis, I figure it pertains. Peace, Preston
A private fundraising event in Brooklyn for the activist group Critical Resistance was raided by the New York Police Department Nov. 16. Up to 100 people in attendance were indiscriminately sprayed with chemical agents, beaten with nightsticks, and otherwise harassed by a throng of police officers. Witnesses say there was no provocation for the assaults and the subsequent arrests. Over 25 police vehicles arrived at 968 Atlantic Ave., the location of the event, at around 2 AM, to investigate an officer's report of someone standing outside the party holding an "open container." Within minutes, attendees said, the police attacked the crowd, beating attendees who were not resisting their orders. Over 20 people experienced effects of the pepper spray that was erratically sprayed into the air by the officers. All tenants of the private residential building were present at the event, did not request police assistance, and no one in the building placed a complaint with either the local precinct or the emergency response system. Witnesses report that no warrant was presented upon police entrance. At least eight arrests were made on charges of disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and inciting riot. The 77th Precinct, where the arrestees were initially held, refused to provide any information about the status of those arrested. Emergency medical technicians visited the precinct to attend to those who sustained serious injuries, which reportedlt include bruised ribs, a spinal injury, and severe blows to the head. Critical Resistance is a national grassroots group that focuses on prisons and police brutality, and challenges the belief that policing, surveillance, imprisonment, and similar forms of control make our communities safer.

maybe, that's all due to getting closer to 2012?

getting sick is also getting awareness of how the situation is.

I can't predict the future but it looks like , we need Humanization

from chaos to order, from complication to simplisity, from

control to Anarchism.

I say a morning pray for a better day. I day of a little more Humanization.

In the interests of fairness & accuracy my 150th posting is a more critical look at the NYPD raid story, also from the Iboga mailing list.


I checked out 'world war 3 report', because the story in question
had a certain odor that I associate with the worst of b-movies...
you know; the kind that brings out homicidal tendencies in the
best of us... not that I'm questioning ww3's journalistic integrity
or their fact-gathering capabilities...

So I googled up the sources in question and guess what;
no credible source behind this story, nothing but wishful
hyperboling by a bunch of pouting revolutionary wannabes....

This is the gist of it---

A 'private fundraising benefit' at 2am??? for the
1st Anarchist People of Color (APOC) conference-
(an anarchy conference -- like an all-mimes' karaoke night)
hosted at the Critical Resistance officespace at 968 Atlantic
Avenue, Brooklyn... (read mastermind's bedroom in mom's apartment )
...with up to 100 attendees? (And as low as...?)

Come on.... this is worse than pedophiliac chain-mail.... These
dimwits deserve all the police brutality ever seen on mexican tv!
They have no problem with slander, lying, inciting and stirring shit up,
because they're your neighborhood revolutionaries, and they
deserve media coverage and your financial support...

Here are a few precious quotes from the Critical Resistance
original 'press releases'... (2 on the same page)

" enforcement <cut> is engaged in a campaign to
terrorize communities of color <cut> particularly those revolutionary
activists <cut> that seek to create spaces of resistance and rebellion"
(whoa there, young skywalker!)

"Approximately 21 marked police vehicles arrived..."

Throngs of police indiscriminately sprayed chemical agents, beat
people with nightsticks, punched, shoved, kicked and dragged people
along sidewalks --- At least one camera used to record the incident was
confiscated and/or destroyed (and/or never existed) People suffered
various injuries, from transgender harassment (hey!) to blunt trauma (pow!)
lacerations, contusions (bang!) and lower back spasms (Oyyy..!).
One person was treated for a hematoma (oooh!) on his 'right frontal skull'.
(his posterior one's ok though..)

Noun: Hematoma (Hematomata); A localized swelling filled with blood.

“I was stunned at the severity of the attack, and I am genuinely
concerned for the safety (hic!) and well-being of those who were unfairly
detained and arrested,” said witness (buuurp) at the scene of the incident.

"Legal council at the scene (ROTFL!) confirmed that at least 8 arrests were made."

So let's tally up -- 100 attendees, 20.3 police cruisers, 8 bruised assholes....and
legal council at the scene..(hahahahaa!!!)

* Support our work by making a financial contribution.
(Make checks payable to “Brecht Forum” and write
“Critical Resistance NYC, sucker” in the memo line.)

And from the APOC site---
We invite any and all persons of color.. <cut> ..we ask that all white
privileged individuals to respect our autonomy and do not come.

Someone should explain the term 'anarchy' to these well-meaning vigilantes....

Thanks GanjaCat, for the news.


& In case You haven't heard:

Kucinich put in writing that as president He will:
"decriminalize marijuana" -"in favor of a drug policy that sets reasonable boundaries for marijuana use by establishing guidelines similar to those already in place for alcohol."
