Judge Restricts Anti-Democratic Actions of the Police

by IMC Print / Fernando Velasquez Wednesday, Aug. 16, 2000 at 1:23 PM

[english] report on court restrictions of police activity, including confiscation of puppets. Also touches on actions of latino groups on Sunday (8/12/2000).

LOS ANGELES, CA- Dean D. Pregerson, a Federal Judge of this city, yesterday prohibited the police to confiscate the D2KLA's (2000 Democratic National Convention of Los Angeles) puppets and documents in their operations site. The D2K is a coalition of hundreds of organizations who have recently shown they are against the Democractic party for its collaboration with neoliberalism and its many social, political, economic and military expressions.

But the judge took the easy way out so that the police officers continue spying on the activists, who had complained of the police's hostile intentions. Some affirm that police helicopters circled above their convergence space fifty times, others say that the police followed them in the streets, and others are sure they received a traffic infraction for merely placing a foot off the sidewalk when the light was red.

Today Latino groups marched through part of the city to repudiate racism, discrimination, the massive incarceration of people of color, and the American intervention in Latin American. Another part of the group, those that abhor the application of genetic engineering in foods, also marched through the streets alerting people with their props, signs and posters, about the immeasurable ecological damage of recently invented products.

Also the People's Convention concluded, by organizing discussion groups and exchanging ideas about migration, AIDS, union struggles, the organized resistance and a controversial executive board that included Celerino Castillo, ex-agent of the Drug Enforcement Administration and Michael Reupert, ex-Angelino.

They both showed documents and books, and said they have) photos and other evidence of the North American Central Intelligence Agency's (CIA) having more than half a century of trafficking drugs.

Although most of the protests are scheduled for the 14th through the 17th, they hope that the march for the liberation of political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal the day before will be well attended.
