The Justice & Honor for Luís Góngora Pat Coalition has created an autopsy diagram based on the official report of the Office of the Medical Examiner. We believe the Office of the Medical Examiner did not include a diagram to avoid giving the public a visual image of the harm done to Luis. We believe the public is entitled to as full transparency as possible around the facts of the case. As we learn more facts, we will adjust and improve our narrative of what happened that day....

text Analysis of Legal and Security situation under Trump by crystal
I have written an analysis of the security and legal situation for NVDA activists resisting the Trump regime for the NV preparers in Santa Cruz as of now. It comes out of a tense discussion at my affinity group meeting over the question, "Just how fucked up are things now?" My analysis, horrible...but could be worse. We are planning massive NVDA to protect our neighborhoods in Santa Cruz against ICE, FBI, whoever is coming, and this is for that organizing. So it does have a California, indeed...

text UC Berkeley Sponsors Muslim Basher: Drive Out the Trump Regime! Start with John Yoo by Curt
Torture advocate John Yoo and his handlers at Boalt Hall think Donald Trump's "new" Muslim ban is A-OK. Despite a decade of community protest against the corruption of young legal minds by a resident war criminal with a dangerous philosophy of exceptionalism - that American lives are worth more than other people's - law school administrators deny consequences of Yoo's professional misconduct. Professor Yoo shames the university every time he opens his mouth. His legal "opinions" further the i...
