Many of you may know already that the Long Haul Infoshop in Berkeley was raided by the F B I on Weds. 8/27 with the help of local police officers. It's the infoshop's first raid. They took over one dozen computers and would not provide the warrant to show that they had the "right" to gain access to the infoshop until after the raid took place.

We need to provide support to the Long Haul since we're all connected in this struggle. Our meeting places, infoshops, bookstores, and union organizing halls must be protected and if federal agents continue to crack down on our privacy and right to organize, we have to be united.
A demo is planned for THURSDAY SEPT 4 at SPROUL PLAZA at UC berkeley, 11am. PLEASE distribute widely. On wednesday 9/3 at 6pm at the Long Haul there will be a poster/banner making party for the demo the next day.
As the RNC approaches, over 100 activists in st Paul have been detained, and last Monday, nearly 600 Mississippi immigrant workers were detained by the Immigration and Customs enforcement (I C E). Our struggles are bound!
