(en) US, Report Back from CopWatch LA Outreach at the SC Farm

Date Sun, 11 Jun 2006 14:54:59 +0300


Hey folks, Yesterday 6 members of COPWATCH LA and 6 campesinos/farmers went
to do door-to-door outreach in South Central around the South Central Farm.
Before we went out we talked and invited the campesinos/farmers to go with us
and jumped on board saying, "If you're all going to do talk to people about
the farm, and you're not farmers, then why not the farmers go with you as well."
It was a great experience talking to the farmers while we outreached to people.
Some told us they never had any experience talking to others about their struggle
and their history at the farm. They mentioned how it would be great if they could
get some trainning in actually talking to people. Also that by just going out
there and doing the outreache they got over their fear of speaking in public.

Overall we got good responses from the community. Some people didn't
know what the vigils were about and why we were out there re-taking the
farm.

CopWatch and the Farmers we will be doing more outreach in the community
everyday at 6pm. We meet on 41st and Long Beach before we go into the
community. Anybody is welcome to be part of the outreach, which is one
of the things which is key right now.

We talk to people about different things they can do to support and take
up the struggle. Like being witness and participating in defense of the
farm when the police and sheriffs come in. Call Jan Perry, and other of
the liars in office. One thing we'll be doing in the coming days is
inviting people to the vigils that happen at 7pm.

We'll also be passing out fliers with information on Cop Watch and with
a contact number in case the community sees anything suspicious with the
police or if they see cops meeting to get ready to attack the farm.

in struggle,

COP WATCH LA
