#Repression After #Shutdown #Milo In #Berkeley: ARC Statement
Don’t Talk to the Police: ARC Statement on UC Berkeley Police Investigation of Protesters:
ARC is aware that UC Berkeley PD is circulating images of individuals who they claim are associated with the Berkeley anti-Milo protest on February 1. They are actively seeking information about these individuals, and are asking anyone with information to contact them.
We want to remind everyone NOT to assist UC Berkeley PD in their investigation, EVEN IF it seems like the information you give is harmless. Remember that even minor information, like identifying a “witness,” can be used to increase surveillance of activist communities. Police use this kind of information to map activist networks and harass them. In the current political climate, the state is looking for ways to clamp down on dissent and resistance. Let’s not help them do that.
Remember that you have NO LEGAL OBLIGATION to talk to police or FBI if contacted about the protest. They may try to make you feel intimidated, but you ALWAYS have the right to remain silent. If you are contacted by phone, email, letter, or in person, either ignore the correspondence, or tell the officer that you decline to speak with them.
If you are contacted, immediately call the National Lawyers Guild at 415-285-1041 so that they can give you legal advice, and also so that they can be aware of police/FBI activities.
Finally: DO NOT post or circulate the UC Berkeley PD webpage with pictures of individuals. We do not want to signal boost anything that will increase surveillance and targeting of our communities.

Στις 15/09/2020 καταστρέψαμε τη πρόσοψη των Lidl στην περιοχή του Φαλήρου. Εντός ενός πλαισίου καλεσμάτων δράσεων, οι δράσεις μας ξεπερνούν το στενό χρονικό και εδαφικό πλαίσιο. Αυτοί προστατεύουν το κέντρο; Εμείς επιτηθόμαστε στο προάστια, απολαμβάνοντας τους ήχους των συναγερμών και την παραπλανητική σιωπή των ανθρώπινων μηχανών που ξεκουράζονται για μια ακόμη ημέρα ακατάπαυστης κατανάλωσης.
