text Retenes fin de semana de la Independencia / Independence Day checkpoints (14-15/sep/2012) Checkpoint response 2012-09-14 12:15 PM
Muy pocos retenes se anuncian para este fin de semana pero seguro que habrá más de los anunciados. Si miras un retén en su vecindario, usa esta información para avisar a la gente de tu comunidad. Lo que hemos notedo en Checkpoint response es que en base de estas redes de comunicación, se ha podido forjar comudidades que resisten activamente estas práticas policiales y que avanzan la causa de derechos humanos. Para mayor información , escribe al correo electrónico noretenes@gmail.com <br><br> Few checkpoints are announced this weekend but there are certain to be more. If you see a checkpoint in your neighborhood, use that information to warn those in your community. What we've noticed at Checkpoint response is that communities that actively resist these police practices and that advance human rights can be built upon upon those communication networks.

DREAMers confront Sheriff Baca on Deportations, 6 arrested
Thursday, September 6, 2012 <br><br> LOS ANGELES - While other immigrant rights organizations were getting bogged down in DACA paperwork<sup>1</sup>--many of them charging for the service--the DREAMers, never content to rest on their laurels despite their enormous accomplishment, realized the necessity of advancing the movement. Over ten years of organizing has made them masters of political strategy, timing being their forte. And last Thursday was no exception. (image/jpeg + 2 comments)

Retenes del fin de semana del Día Memorial / Memorial Day weekend checkpoints (25-28/may/2
¡Póngase abusado raza! Este fin de semana memorial va a haber un montón de retenes. A la gran cantidad de retenes también se suman varias patrullas de saturación, las cuales no constan esta lista. Cuidado también que la policía siempre realiza más retenes de los que se anuncian por la prensa. Si Ud. Mira algún retén en su área, favor de alertar a su comunidad al igual que la línea de retenes al 909-992-0440. Otra cosita: muchas de las agencias, al parecer, no están respetando la ley AB 353, la cual permite que un conductor cuyo único delito es manejar sin licencia (a excepción de que la licencia sea suspendida o revocada) llame a un conductor con licencia para recoger el carro antes del fin del retén. Este es su derecho, ¡pero lo hay que reclamar! Si no respetan este derecho suyo, les pedimos que marquen al mentado número para reportar el abuso. Con cuidado, ¡y que siga la resistencia! <br><br> Get wise, people! This Memorial Day weekend there will be numerous police checkpoints. In addition, there will be many saturation patrols, which are not listed here. Please be aware that the police always conduct more checkpoints than they announce through the media. If you see a checkpoint in your area, please alert your community as well as the checkpoint hotline at 909-992-0440. One more thing: it appears that many agencies are not respecting the law AB 353, which permits a driver whose only infraction is driving without a license (with the exception of suspended or revoked licenses) to call a licensed driver to retrieve the car prior to the conclusion of the checkpoint. This is your right, might you must demand that it be respected! If they do not honor your rights, we ask that you call the aforementioned number to report the abuse. Be careful, and keep up the resistance! (image/jpeg + 1 comment)
