Occupy Cal: Spring into Action

Occupy Cal

12 PM: Converge on Sproul
After the rally/march: General Assembly

Join us next Thursday at the “Spring into Action” rally and march to
show the campus and the state that the struggle in defense of public
education and free speech is growing and is more powerful than ever.

Last Fall, Occupy Cal made history by helping stop the proposed 81%
fee hike, by spreading the Occupy movement to campuses across the
state and the nation, and by putting the struggle in defense of public
education at the center of the national spotlight. This Spring
promises to be even more dynamic, given the anti-education budget
proposed by Governor Brown, the momentum around the March 1 National Day of Action for Education, and the growing movement to tax the rich and corporations.

Thursday’s short rally and march will be followed by a mass General
Assembly to get organized and coordinated for the big actions and
education activities being planned for the Spring. Get involved! Help
make history!

  1. The quality of life and security for the citizens has been largely restored and we are a large part of why that has happened.

  2. Press Release Occupy Buffer Zone (OBZ)On the night of Friday 6/4/2012 as is known, the police ievdand the space that was under occupation by the Occupy Buffer Zone movement in the Dead Zone. The movement is part of the global occupations movement that began last year in New York and is protesting against the poverty and social injustices that the capitalist neoliberal model is creating in every corner of the earth. In Cyprus, the movement took on a bicommunal character and considered from the beginning that the so-called ‘Cyprus problem’ is a result of the competitions that are created in capitalism and expresses the interests of local and international forces in the region. Thus we considered it important, T/Cs and G/Cs jointly, to transfer the protest to the space of the dead zone, a point of the island which semiotically describes all of the above.The empty building owned by the Kykkos monastery was transformed by the movement into a center for activities of cultural and sociopolitical nature which was open for all. On Friday night the executive power in an unprecedented demonstration of force, and, in communication with the other authorities including the United Nations (in view of the coming EU presidency), proved that any political and social action that differs from the ‘standard’ stereotypes will be persecuted with a dictatorial and authoritarian character that does not recognize nor respect human and constitutional rights. In the only space of the island where reunification and social equality escape the limits of state negotiations and are realized through collective and self-organized processes, the answer of the legal Cypriot state took place in the framework of intimidation, threat and irregularity.The accusation of illegal entry with which all the arrested were charged does not constitute an offence according to the penal code as there was no intention for committing a penal offence. Therefore the detention of the arrested is considered illegal. As a movement but also as citizens we demand to know why the policemen refused persistently to show any warrant, as well as their identification numbers (as is provided by law) when they were repeatedly asked to. In addition, it was not answered whether the terrorist raid of the repression forces took place with the consent of the legal owner. If the Kykkos monastery wanted to claim and restore the building to inaction it would have been morally more right to ask, or take action with the legal procedures instead of encouraging the police to intervene making unfounded allegations.The unfounded reason for drug trafficking is rejected naturally from the result of the operation during which the police managed to find in total less than a gram of cannabis on the floor of one room! They took care of charging this quantity on two young men that happened to be near the room, one inside the room and the other outside, giving them a beating in the process. Several hours later and after the young men asked to be examined by the doctor, they were also charged with the accusations of resistance and assault, obviously in order to justify the uncalled-for beating. A body search also took place on girls by armed men of the special forces who were aiming their guns at 16 year olds. As for our friend who is charged with assaulting a policeman, it is enough for someone to see the marks on her body to understand if she were a victim or an aggressor.The participation of the Special Anti-Terrorist Force shows the way in which the state handles the youth of this place, G/Cs and T/Cs, who claim a future which will be a creation of the Cypriot people themselves and not a creation of the existing domestic and world politico-economical and social status quo.We apologize for being unable to transfer in words the repugnant scenes of state violence we lived, and we wish to assure you that we will not stop existing actively and creatively.abYou cannot evict an ideabbabYou can’t solve a problem with a perception smaller than the one that created itbb

  3. It is approximate to 800 x 600 DPI on a computer screen, where High Definition is approximate to
    1280 x 1024 DPI on a computer screen. The traditional way has taken a back
    seat, and a more technologically-fit way has arrived.
    There are certain internet webpages that announces having watch movies online that you can watch followed after you appear at the web you are needed to complete a survey or download an meddling advertisement software to your computer.

  4. I have a new idea. If they want to storm an embassy, let ’em. Let them all in, as many as they can get in there that want to go in. If the mob wants to climb the walls and storm the gates, don’t try stpiopng them, just clear out and wait until they’re all inside the walls.Then hit the place with a Tomahawk or five.We only kill the guilty ones that way, but we kill them all, and we do it brutally and decisively. And after we do that a couple of times maybe the rest of the barbarians might think twice before doing it again.

  5. No estoy completamente conforme en que el financiamiento
    de las acciones del gobierno deban ser voluntarias, creo que deben ser por
    impuestos.
