In attempt to shut down the Long Beach REACH Center (aka Infoshoppe), 
Long Beach Police contacted the leasing company, Crestwave, and 
threatened to take legal action against them if the REACH Center was 
not shut down. The notice came on Jan 2nd, 03, from Crestwave when 
they called the REACH Center, stating the LBPD called them regarding 
last Friday's show (benefit for Raise the Fist). The police 
reportedly told Crestwave when they came to the show with a noise 
complaint someone tried to assault them and the door was slammed in 
their face. This is a LIE. Police officers came to the show with a 
noise complaint, stating the noise needed to be turned down, then 
left. There was no confrontation. The situation was dealt with 
peacefully and respectively. The noise was turned down, the last two 
bands were canceled, and the show ended at approximately 8pm, 2 hours 
early. If someone tried to assault the police then how come nobody 
was arrested? 
The LBPD appear to be disappointed in fact that despite intensified 
political repression against anarchists in Long Beach, the REACH 
Center still remains open. There has been a continuous effort by Long 
Beach Police, FBI and INS to repress political descent, particularly 
that of the anarchist movement in Long Beach. Police are now actively 
trying to shut down the center - the only anarchist community space 
in Long Beach. The REACH (Revolutionary Empowerment and Community 
Help) Center is an anarchist space that seeks to empower the 
community of Long Beach by providing an open community space for 
meetings, political events, programs such as Food Not Bombs, Cop 
Watch, and books and information otherwise not readily available to 
the community. KEEP THE REACH CENTER OPEN! STOP POLITICAL REPRESSION 
NOW! 

More info, contact REACH Center at 562-434-6934. 684 Redondo, Long 
Beach, CA. 90814.
