FCC Visits Free Radio Santa Cruz

At 10:15 a.m. on Thursday, May 13, agents from the Federal Communications Commission attempted to gain entry into the studio of Free Radio Santa

Copwatch, a group to observe and monitor police activities, is being formed by Santa Cruz citizens concerned about police misconduct and abuse of power in the Santa Cruz community.

Catastrophic Anarchy

The closest thing to a Utopian society I have been in is the aftermath of major earthquakes. For a brief moment, people are humbled, and there is a
thankfulness for life, itself. Possessions are seen as transitory in this light. The homeless are not arrested, police seem to disappear...Santa Cruz and Northridge Earthquakes taught me a lot...
