(en) US, First L.A. Cop Watch Meeting on 10/24

Date Tue, 18 Oct 2005 11:43:46 +0200

First meeting to begin planning for a Cop Watch in Los Angeles on Monday
October 24 at 7pm at the YJC Center 253 W. Martin Luther King Blvd (cross
street is Broadway off the 110 fwy) contact:Joaquin Cienfuegos at morph3030-A-yahoo.com
We want all people who are interested in planning and organizing in a
proactive way to empower our communities to stop police brutality and murder.
This is a project of the STOP Coalition (Stop Terrorism and Oppression
by Police) -- which includes the Youth Justice Coalition, the Southern
California Anarchist Federation (LA), and other organizations and
individuals. This project was initiated by SCAF-LA.

The meetings will be used to plan patrols, and plan trainings on
organizing a cop watch in other communities -- our efforts are for
particular communities to start organizing themselves and provide tools
to help in that process.

What is a cop watch:
- community members, and supporters, patrol police when they're carrying
out their business as usual (harrassing, and profiling)
- they observe with cameras, and/or legal observers
- take down police badge numbers and license plates
- take direct action to stop police brutality and police murder
- they help give resources to communities who are organizing to stop
police brutality
- its a concrete way that a community can organize itself, and be proactive
- they eventually take their communities back from the police
