Retenes del fin de semana de Halloween / Halloween weekend checkpoints (26-27/oct/2012) (tags)

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.

Immigrant Community Stand Up Against Checkpoints (tags)

Tuesday, October 16, 2012
ONTARIO, California - Members of the immigrant community in Ontario protested the lack of police compliance with a state law designed to reduce the number of cars impounded at checkpoints, where drivers are detained without any probable cause. About 60 people marched through the city, and then presented their demands to the city council.

Retenes del fin de semana del Día Memorial / Memorial Day weekend checkpoints (25-28/may/2 (tags)

¡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!

Lxs voluntarixs de Checkpoint response te traen esta ?ltima noticia sobre los retenes en tu ?rea. No va ser una lista completa, porque siempre hay los que no se anuncian. Para informaci?n m?s actualizada, favor de fijarse en la p?gina de facebook de RETEN, p?gina con la cual tenemos rato colaborando. Conoce y defiende tus derechos y sigue luchando por los que a?n no te garantizan.

Know your rights, stand up for them, and keep on fighting for those rights that you are still not able to exercise.

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.

Found this:

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.

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!

Labor Day checkpoints / Retenes del Puente del Día de Trabajo (3-10/sep/2010) (tags)

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.

¡Saludos pueblo! Lxs voluntarixs de Checkpoint response piden disculpas que no hemos podido publicar listas de retenes en estas últimas semanas. Nos ha faltado un poco la mano de obra. 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. Favor de comunicarse con nosotros al correo electrónico noretenes@gmail.com. En cambio, les traemos una buena noticia: Activistas de la ciudad de Baldwin Park han logrado detener la práctica del decomiso de vehículos en retenes en su comunidad. ¡Bravo y falicidades!

Greetings! The volunteers of Checkpoint response beg your pardon that we have not been able to publish checkpoint lists these last weeks. We have been a bit short-handed. 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 noretenes@gmail.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!

Como siempre cuando hay un gran evento o día festivo, agencias de orden público usan el pretexto para aumentar la aplicación de leyes racistas, clasistas, y antimigrantes. Habrá varios retenes, y muchas agencias reportan que van a monitorear con mayor vigilancia las vías públicas. Checkpoint response les avisa de los retenes previstos, no sólo en California, sino en el resto del país también, y les pedimos que tengan mucho cuidado.

As with other holidays and large events, law enforcement agencies use the pretext to heighten enforcement of classist, racist, and anti-immigrant laws. This weekend will see numerous checkpoints, as well as non-checkpoint traffic enforcement. Checkpoint response brings you this warning of the foreseeable checkpoints, and urges the utmost caution on the road.

Checkpoints Violate the Fourth Amendment and Normalize the Police State (tags)

For all the controversy surrounding so-called “DUI checkpoints,” many of the commentators are missing the mark entirely. Checkpoints violate our right to freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, a fundamental freedom guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment of the Bill of Rights.

Youth arrested and brutalized for protesting a checkpoint (tags)

Police checkpoints, "legal" violations of the fourth amendment, are plaguing our communities. Not only do police stop people without any probable cause whatsoever, but they deprive people of their property, impounding their cars for up to thirty days. These checkpoints disproportionately affect the immigrant community, and in the inland city of Rialto, past checkpoints have resulted in more than 80 impounds in a single night. So what happens when members of the community use their free speech rights to inform others of police action? Here is a first-person account from Carlos, a young activist in Rialto:

Below Shlomo Lahat writes about the disasters that are known as check points. There are a number of additional kinds of disasters in the West Bank and Gaza; they not only will not contribute to anyone’s security, least of all Israel’s, but as a result of this are also likely to keep Jews and tourists away from Israel’s doors and encourage many residents and citizens here to leave for happier and safer grounds.
