We have received word of yet another home visit by UCPD pigs in an ongoing effort to intimidate students who were arrested and/or spoke to media at the Regents’ meeting at UCSF on November 17. This puts the verified total at 4 in the last week, and we are still looking for confirmation of another 3 possible cases. The latest case is a Berkeley undergrad who was arrested in the parking deck on the 17th and charged with obstructing an officer. On Monday, November 22nd around 9:30 am, two UCSF cops reportedly showed up to her off-campus apartment, though thankfully she was already out of town for Thanksgiving. Her building manager spoke with the officers, who told her to tell the student that they wanted to talk about “anything else [she] saw” at the meeting.
Why the hell are these pigs continuing to harass students at their homes?
What further information following a non-violent protest arrest (with vague obstruction and resisting charges at that!) could possibly be useful to any ongoing case anyway? Are these pigs out of their minds?
We’ve had enough. We will not stand for this level of intimidation. As we’ve reported before, the ACLU is already involved, but we won’t leave this up to the judicial arm of the state. Let’s build a campaign to get these pigs back in line. When we return from break, let’s meet to figure out how we’re going to stand up to this increased level of repression. Enough is enough. Let’s organize against these pigs and show them that we will not stand by as they act as the armor of coercion protecting UCOP and the Regents as they force us into debt slavery.
Pigs off our campuses! Is this a university or a crime scene?
Stop intimidating students at their homes! We are documenting this continued harassment, and we’ll see you in court!
Let’s build a campaign to check these pigs! We can start by organizing around getting Kemper fired immediately!
