Art and Revolution Helps Residents File Their Taxes



April 15th, tax day. Hundreds of Santa Cruz residents filed into the post office to send off their tax forms, and Art and Revolution, along with other students and community member, were there to meet them.

Dressed as skeletons, continental soldiers, women covered in lace and blood, Bechtel and Halliburton and Uncle Sam, clad fully in American stripes with a huge $ sign on his back and oil containers chained to his feet and hands, they certainly upped the ante on paying their national dues.

Jailing of The Reverend Raises 1st Amendment Issues

Jailing The Reverend, a homeless, black tarot card reader raises serious issues of racial, social, and economic cleansing on Pacific Ave. by the use of drug war tactics. And this in a City which is known as sympathetic to medical marijuana users. The Sentinel spins us a story in which police state tactics are simply "mental health issues" faced by "law enforcment." Paschal facing up to 90 days in our County jail, $12,000 - $18,000 in transporting costs, and up to eight months in a New Hampshire prison are all paid for with shrinking public funds.

Santa Cruz Civilian Weapons Inspection Team Refused Entry to Lockheed Martin



On Friday, April 11, about sixty members of the Santa Cruz Citizen Weapons Inspections Team visited the Lockheed Martin facility at the top of Empire Grade in Bonny Doon. The goal of the team was to ascertain to what extent that facility is developing weapons of mass destruction.

Upon reaching the gate, the team announced that they would begin the inspection, and they requested admittance to the site. Facility Operations Manager Pete Olinger responded, “Sorry, we cannot let you in. We recognize your right to protest, but we also hope you respect our employees' rights and our property. If you have any additional comments, please contact Jeff Richmond at the Public Relations Department.?

“At this point we have decided not to go in without permission,? said a member of the Weapons Inspection Team. “But we do intend to inspect this site and may go in (illegally) at some later time.?

Students Rally Downtown for Day of Silence

On Wednesday, April 9, students from Santa Cruz High, Cabrillo College, and UC Santa Cruz participated in the National Day of Silence, a day of protest through the means of transforming silence as a tool of oppression into a tool of resistance. Participating students remained silent all day to demonstrate the effects of marginalized people's lack of representation and recognition in mainstream society. A silent march began at 4:30pm from the Diversity Center and ended at the Veterans' Memorial breaking the day-long silence with a rally.

In related news, students at UCSC have been holding a 24-hour peace camp and vigil on the Porter College lawn since Monday, April 7. Students have created an anti-war space for student activists to gather and discuss the strategic future of student activism at UCSC. The purpose of the peace camp is to protest the devastation of Iraqi civilian livelihood through the wars on Iraq and twelve years of economic sanctions.
