Como siempre cuando son días festivos, va a haber varios retenes en California. Una táctica interesante que utilizó la comunidad de Ontario fue aprovechar de la temporada de elecciones para intervenir con sus reclamos y buscar el favor de los candidatos. Si no lo hubieran hecho, la política de los migrantes no se habría discutido para nada. Cuidado, gente, y organícense.
As always on holiday weekends, there will be numerous checkpoints in California. An interesting tactic that the community of Ontario used was to take advantage of the election season to make their complaints and to appeal to the candidates. If they had not done so, immigration politics would simply not have been discussed. Be careful, people, and get organized.

La Oficina estatal de Seguridad de Tránsito acaba de anunciar las agencias becadas para este año. ¿Recibió una beca la localidad donde usted vive? Véase la página web para informarse: http://www.ots.ca.gov/Media_and_Research/Press_Room/2012/doc/2013_Grant_list_by_region.pdf
Nosotrxs en Checkpoint response nos hemos percatado de que no todas las agencias de orden público están cumpliendo con la ley AB353 como se debe. (La ley permite que a un conductor detenido en un retén cuyo único delito es manejar sin licencia llame a alguien con licencia para recoger el auto.) Si cae en un retén, tiene que reclamar su derecho de llamar a alguien más porque no le van a informar. Y si no le permiten ejercer ese derecho, favor de informarnos a nosotros o a tu organización local. Manda un correo electrónico a firstname.lastname@example.org.
The California Office of Traffic Safety just announced the agencies that will be receiving grants this year. Did your local agency or university receive a grant? Check the list on the website to find out: http://www.ots.ca.gov/Media_and_Research/Press_Room/2012/doc/2013_Grant_list_by_region.pdf
We at Checkpoint response have found out that not all the law enforcement agencies are following the AB 353 law like they should. (That is the law that permits drivers who get caught going through checkpoints without licenses to call a licensed driver to get the car.) If you go through a checkpoint, you must speak up in order to exercise your right, because the police are not informing people of their options. And if they do not allow you to call a licensed driver, please inform us or your local organization. Send an email to email@example.com.

¡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!
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!

En el Estado de California una nueva ley entrará en vigor a partir del primero de enero que limitará el periodo de decomiso de un carro a un día en lugar de 30 días. Este cambio representa un logro para ustedes, las personas que día por día han luchado en contra de esta injusticia. Aplaudámosnos, seguro, pero sin descansar porque aún continúan otras injusticias que hay que detener para crear un mundo mejor.
In the State of California, a neew law will take effect beginning January 1 that will limit the length of a car's impoundment to one day, down from 30 days.

Retenes 4 de julio 2011 / July 4 weekend checkpoints (tags)
Cada 4 de julio, cuando el gringo celebra su conquista de estas tierras, tambi?n tiene su manera de recordarnos quien no somos "americanos": pobres, migrantes, latinxs, afroamericanxs, descapacitadxs, j?venes, la comunidad LGBT. Una de sus t?cticas es el ret?n, una violaci?n del derecho individual, y que tiene como finalidad el objetivo de encajarle a uno en una categor?a. Sigamos resistiendo.
Every July 4, the descendents of the settlers who appropriated these lands and the oppressed they have assimilated celebrate that conquest. They always seem to set up checkpoints around this time, too, as if to remind us who is not "American": the poor, the migrant, the latino/a, the African-American, the disabled, the young, the LGBT community. This violation of basic dignity, like all forms of conquest, is an attempt to place people into a category and, if possible, commodify them. Keep up the resistance.
The Automobile Club of Southern California also is offering its free "Tipsy Tow" service from 6 p.m. Saturday to 11:59 p.m. Monday. People who have been drinking can get a free one-way tow and ride home for up to 7 miles by calling 800-400-4AAA.

¿No se te hace curioso que siempre cuando hay grandes mobilizaciones, las fuerzas de la represión también programan un sinfín de puntos de control de tránsito? No dejemos que nos paralicen con sus tácticas de intimidación. Es importantísimo que nos armemos con información, primeramente de nuestros derechos como seres humanos y como residentes de este país, y segundamente de los lugares donde planean realizar retenes, y más importantemente, de nuestro poder como pueblo organizado para control nuestro propio destino. ¡Todxs a las calles!
Isn't it strange how whenever there are large workers' mobilizations, the forces of repression happen to schedule an innumerable quantity of traffic control stations? Let's not let them paralyze us with their intimidatory tactics. It is of utmost importance that we arm ourselves with information: First of our rights as humans and as residents of this country, secondly of where the checkpoints are scheduled to take place, and most importantly, of our own power as an organized community to control our destiny! Everyone to the streets!

Lista de Retenes / Checkpoint list for 11-13/feb/2011 (tags)
El fin de semana pasado fue el Super Bowl y hubo muchísimos arrestos e incautaciones de automóviles de personas que no estaban ebrias, pero a las que el sistema no les permite manejar legalmente. Pero la represión no descansa, sea la excusa un día de festividades o no. Por eso aquí les tenemos una lista corta de los retenes para este fin de semana. Recuerden que como la represión del gobierno no descansa así también la resistencia nunca debe descansar; no olviden renunciar los retenes que vean o si escuchan por algún medio que va haber un retén hagan su aportación a esta lista.
Last weekend was Super Bowl weekend and there were many arrests and car confiscations of people that where not drunk, but people that the system won’t let drive legally. Nevertheless, repression does not stop, whether a it's holiday weekend or not. Therefore here is a short list of checkpoints for this weekend. Remember that just like repression does not rest, WE the resistance should also stay vigilant; don’t forget to denounce the checkpoints that you eye witness or if you hear about a checkpoint, share the information comrades!

Como siempre raza, el estado policial utiliza cualquier pretexto (en esta ocasión, la famosa "Superbowl") para interceder en nuestras vidas y tratar de limitar nuestro derecho a la mobilidad e imponer su autoridad absoluta. Por lo tanto, como siempre, la resistencia se está organizando no solamente para la liberación del pueblo sino también para informarse, detener la represión, y combatir las fuerzas del mal. Para este esfuerzo, también necesitamos tu participación.
As always, the police state uses any pretext (in this case, the so-called "Superbowl") to intervene in our lives and to attempt to limit our right to mobility and to impose its absolute authority. Likewise, as always, the resistance is organizing not only for popular liberation, but also tu inform the public, stop the repression, and fight back against the forces of evil. In this effort your participation is needed.

Continúa sin interrupción el "Año del Retén." Sigue la lista de retenes anunciados por la prensa corporativa para este fin de semana y más adelante. Hay utilizar máxima precaución al salir manejando en estos fines de semana que comprenden días feriados como el Día del Trabajo. La policía muchas veces recibe financiamiento que proviene directamente de la gente más humilde que es negada el derecho de trasladarse en auto. Además, hay estafadores que prometen anunciar retenes pero resulta que cobran para bastante para el servicio. (Véase este artículo de una periodista del estado de Pennsylvania.) Siempre vale más contar con sus propios camaradas de sus comunidades.
The "Year of the Checkpoint" continues relentlessly. This weekend's list of media-announced checkpoints follows. Maximum precaution is recommended for those who drive, particularly on holiday weekends. Law enformcement agencies often receive monies that come directly from the poorest, who in many states are denied the right of automobility. Moreover, there are schemers who promise to alert immigrants and civil liberties defenders about checkpoints, who later reveal that they charge high rates for the service. (See this article by a Pennsylvania journalist.) It is always better to count on your own comrades from your communities.

Si usted ve que esta es una labor útil y necesaria y tiene tiempo disponible (cerca de dos horas semanales), su asesoría podría ayudar a muchos individuos cuyo derecho de trasladarse automovilísticamente es negado por las leyees injustas de muchos estados a lo largo y ancho de los EE.UU.

If you see this as a valuable and necessary effort, and you have time available (about two hours weekly), your help can make sure this information reaches many individuals whose right to freedom of mobility is limited by unjust laws in many of the states throughout the country. Contact us at email@example.com. On the bright side, activists in the city of Baldwin Park have managed to halt the practice of car impoundment at checkpoints in their community. Congratulations!

What is Checkpoint response? Checkpoint response is a network of volunteers who spread information about where and when checkpoints are to take place through e-mail, social networking, and text messages. When possible, we also warn the drivers in our communities through standing protests on the affected streets at a distance of a block from the checkpoint. If you would like to report a checkpoint announced in your local press or that you've seen in your community, or if you would like to receive text alerts, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Raza, una cosa que pueden hacer para enterarse de los retenes es leer a diario su periódico local, sobre todo si tiene la posibilidad de leer el diario publicado en inglés, ya que muchas veces las agencias del llamado "orden público" sólo avisan a ellos, y muchas veces ni siquiera les avisa a ellos. Otra táctica es buscar en los sitios de internet de sus departamentos locales de policía al igual que los sitios del alguacil de su condado. Muchas veces tienen una página dedicada a boletines de prensa, o a veces se anuncian en la parte de "asuntos públicos." Lamentablemente, éstos también suelen proporcionar información únicamente en inglés.
Fellow workers, one thing you can do to find out about the checkpoints is to read your local paper daily, especially if you can read the one published in English, since often law enforcement agencies only make advisories to English-language press, and often not even them. Another tactic is to check the websites of your local police departments and county sheriff. Often they will have a page just for press releases, or sometimes they are listed under "public affairs."

Memorial Day weekend checkpoints / Retenes del fin de semana del Día Memorial (28-31/may/2010)
OJO: Ésta no es una lista comprensiva. Siempre hay más retenes que los que se anuncian. Es importante siempre tener mucho cuidado al salir manejando, especialmente las noches de fines de semana festivos. Si usted mira un retén, favor de hacer saber a su organización comunitaria y a los miembros de su comunidad. Si le sea posible, un plantón a una cuadra del retén es muy eficaz para avisar a los conductores sin licencia. Se recomienda que no salga a protestar o a avisar a solas sino en grupo, y que se equipen con cámaras para documentar cualquier abuso que ocurra. También es importante respetar las leyes que prohiben bloquear las aceras o pisar en la calle. Si tienen un organismo comunitario, muchas veces, se lo puede utilizar para exigir cambios de política a nivel municipal. Mientras tanto, ¡sigamos fuerte en resistencia!
CAUTION: This is not a comprehensive list. There are always more checkpoints than are announced. It is important to always take great care when driving, especially at night on holiday weekends. If you see a checkpoint, please alert your local community organization and the members of your community. If possible, a standing protest a block ahead of the checkpoint is very effective for alerting unlicensed drivers. It is not recommended to do this alone--a group is preferable, and equipment such as cameras is important to document any abuses that may occur. It is also important to respect the laws prohibiting blocking the sidewalk and standing in the street. If there is a community entity in your area, it can often be used to demand policy changes at the local level. Meanwhile, let's keep up the resistance!

GEN DANNY LIM; Esperon, Senga Involved in ’06 plot (tags)
PESANTE NEWS today learned by media sources that now it can be told—again. This time straight from the horse’s mouth as it were. Detained Brig. Gen. Danilo Lim, a candidate for senator, on Friday claimed that the then Armed Forces Chief Gen. Generoso Senga and Army Chief Lt. Gen. Hermogenes Esperon Jr. were his accomplices in the failed February 2006 coup plot. Lim, who appeared to be acknowledging for the first time his leadership role in the Feb. 23, 2006, coup plot, claimed that Senga and Esperon had betrayed him and his fellow plotters for what he described as “political enticements” from President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. “These people are turncoats and rabid opportunists.

Race Riots at Riverside high school: Exposing the TRUTH Administrators want to Deny (tags)
As of yet, La Sierra / Tyler districts of Riverside are no where near as bad as places like Eastside--where, you absolutely will get jumped for being the wrong color [between brown / black] for even just walking on the wrong side of the street b/c the turfs are so defined. But, if community members, parents, and students do not take direct action soon, we may very well be on our way to such a demise in other parts of Riverside. Race riots have been spreading in this part of town--from the big Castle Park incident on Valentines Day, to the La Sierra High shut downs the following week, and now this incident at Norte Vista which involved HUNDREDS, far more than the 15 students the press enterprise declares were involved. The District position continues to be to SUPRESS discussion about this as a tactic to calm the situation while simultaneously increasing police presence on campuses. Students need a space & opportunity to dialogue about this, come to their own solutions, and even receive trauma counseling for the violence they repeatedly face by simply showing up for school each day.
