A group of people staged a “noise demonstration” at the Santa Cruz County Jail on Friday August 6. The demonstration was in opposition to the jail’s collaboration with ICE under the “Secure Communities” program. The demonstrators chanted, banged on drums, and blared hip-hop from a portable sound system in order to reach the prisoners inside. A reportback by participants can be found on Santa Cruz Indymedia.


Old News: Nazi Gets Beat Down in Santa Cruz

Posted in Old News, Resistance on June 27, 2010 by antifascist831

On January 21, 2010, a skinhead wrapped up in a Confederate flag walked into the Asti, a bar in downtown Santa Cruz, and began flashing Nazi salutes at everybody. According to someone who posted the story to the Santa Cruz Independent Media website, “it was obvious he had quite a good crowd enjoying his little demonstration. It took us a second to fully understand what was going on, until he went to one of the few black guys in the bar and started some shit, followed by getting his ass kicked outside of the bar.” The person who dished out the beat-down to the Nazi got away safely with the help of their friends (the Independent Media writer made sure of this fact, someone everyone should do whenever shit goes down).
