Happy Holidays... to Everyone

While families get together to celebrate the holidays this season, and corporations smile at their record profits, many Santa Cruzans won't be seeing any gifts, food, or even a warm place to sleep.

In this 'season of giving' (so are all other seasons, times for 'not giving'?), iPods, XBoxes, jewelry and golf clubs, find their way under trees (dead or petrolium-based plastic) or next to the latkes or candle stick holders. Yet, although everything made in overseas sweatshops are brought into the home, our own homeless population remain mostly-forgotten on the street.

The whole year is a 'season of giving' for capitalism.

Happy Holidays.

COINTELPRO: The Dangers We Face

Despite the fact that Santa Cruz has largely turned into a sleepy, rich community, some peaceful interest groups are still targeted by infiltrators, according the the most recent revelation that UCSC SAW was profiled by the FBI.

People should not be paranoid, but should know what is going on. The section about people who disrupt groups is especially interesting.

"Over the years we have been warned about the danger of subversive organizations that would threaten our liberties, subvert our system, would encourage its members to take further illegal action to advance their views, organizations that would incite and promote violence, pitting one American group against another... There is an organization that does fit those descriptions, and it is the organization, the leadership of which has been most constant in its warning to us to be on guard against such harm. The [FBI] did all of those things."
-- Sen. Philip A. Hart
Select Committee on Intelligence Activities and the Rights of Americans, 1975
