Cabrillo College article about the Brown Berets

brownberets2004.jpgA new chapter of the Brown Berets, a non-violent predominantly Latino youth activist organization, has been formed in Santa Cruz. Started by members of the Watsonville Brown Berets and Santa Cruz residents, the new chapter will be autonomous, dealing with issues unique to Santa Cruz.

The Watsonville Brown Berets began in 1994 in response to the increasing gang violence and specifically the gang related murder of 9-year-old Jessica Cortez and her 16-year-old brother, Jorge Cortez.

San Diego Escalates its War on Free Speech: Free Radio San Diego 96.9 Raided

fcc_pirate969.jpgTwo activists are still in jail for defending the first amendment in the recent Grand Jury witchhunt. More activists are receiving subpoenas daily. Today the war on Free Speech in San Diego was escalated to a new level.

This morning, July 21st, at approximately 11AM, Pirate 96.9 was raided by the FCC.

Interview on radioActive sanDiego (.mp3) | Interview on Free Radio Santa Cruz | Please replay on your free, community and pirate radio stations.

The broadcast location of Pirate 96.9 was raided by a number of FCC agents with marshalls. No one was present at the location, so the FCC broke the locks on their doors, entered by force, took their equipment and left. They left a warrant behind them.

The antenna was taken as well as a number of other major components of broadcasting equipment.

Pirate 96.9 is currently off the air. More information at

Flag Amendment and the Assault on Political Dissent

I am Gregory "Joey" Johnson. I was the defendant in the 1989 Supreme Court flag-burning case, Texas v. Johnson. I am still unrepentant about the burning of the American flag at the 1984 Republican National Convention as Ronald Reagan was being nominated for a second term as president. And I still see the American flag as a symbol of empire, oppression, international plunder and murder.
