Soft Science, Hard Time: The Expanding Sexual Regulatory State As Facilitated By Science-LIght

"When the Nazis came for the communists, I did not speak out; As I was not a communist.
When they locked up the social democrats, I did not speak out; I was not a social democrat.
When they came for the trade unionists, I did not speak out; As I was not a trade unionist.
When they came for the Jews, I did not speak out; As I was not a Jew.
When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out."

Homeland Security Unit Detective P.B. Jackson at Egypt Solidarity Demo

On February 6th, 2013, Atlanta anarchists held a march and rally in solidarity with anarchists in Egypt. As is to be expected, the Atlanta Police sent out a detective from the department's Homeland Security Unit (HSU) to monitor the demonstration and take pictures of activists.

A man was noticed sitting on a bench, taking photos and video with his cellphone between typing out text messages. Copwatchers approached the conspicuous man and asked for his name and assignement number, which all APD officers are obligated to provide while on duty. He immediately identified himself as Detective P.B. Jackson with the HSU.

331 Officer Price - At a rally against police brutalityOver the past year, Copwatchers have documented the regular presence of plainclothed APD officers filming protests, rallies, and political events in Atlanta. It was quickly determined that these were officers assigned to the APD's Homeland Security Unit (HSU)( http://atlanta.indymedia.org/local/homeland-security-caught-monitoring-o...). Earlier this week, the APD's Plan of Action for the Occupy Atlanta protests was released to the public (http://atlanta.indymedia.org/local/atlanta-police-departments-occupy-atl...).

Banner Drop in Solidarity With the PNW

238 Early this morning we dropped a banner over Freedom Parkway in Atlanta that read: FOR THE SILENT ONES <3, fuck grand juries @. We did this to show our love for those in the Pacific Northwest who are resisting the grand jury subpeonas there. May the revolt continue to spread in spite of repression by the state. Solidarity with all who rebel.

USA: Human Rights Activist Ordered to Six Months of Jail,
More Repression Scheduled in Santa Cruz, California

By Steven Argue

On July 24th Judge Moody ordered human rights activist and attorney, Ed Frey, to begin a six month sentence, ordering him to check in for jail at 9:00 AM on August 8th, 2012.

Ed Frey was arrested in 2010 for protesting on the Santa Cruz County Courthouse steps. He was opposing Santa Cruz laws that make it illegal for the homeless to sleep at night. Ed Frey’s only act of civil disobedience was sleeping outside in solidarity with the homeless. In Santa Cruz, the human rights of the poor to even survive are routinely violated on the most basic levels.
