Support the Highway 17 Six

By Maureen Smith

Posted on July 28, 2015 by the Santa Cruz County Central Committee

On June 29, six students at the University of California at Santa Cruz (UCSC) were sentenced to 30 days in jail for their courageous civil disobedience on March 3. The judge tentatively set restitution at $28,000; that amount is subject to revision at a future hearing. As part of statewide student protests against both police brutality and tuition increases, they blocked Highway 17 in Santa Cruz for several hours. The following was originally written on May 7 at the time of a preliminary court hearing.

The six UCSC students who blocked Highway 17 on March 3rd for approximately three hours as part of UC-wide actions against student fees and in solidarity with actions occurring at that time (and continuing) nation-wide against institutional racism and police brutality appeared in court today [May 7] to plead no contest to their charges. Three of the students as well as a representative of Food Not Bombs gave statements at a press conference following their court appearance. We will link to those below.

To the Santa Cruz City Council

Posted on March 24 by the Santa Cruz County Central Committee

This letter was sent to the Santa Cruz City Council in advance of a March 24 public hearing on the city's acquisition of a Lenco BearCat military vehicle (see "Give back The BearCat").

March 22, 2015

Mayor Lane and Members of the Santa Cruz City Council:

The Santa Cruz County Peace and Freedom Party opposes the purchase of the Lenco BEARCAT agreed to by the Santa Cruz City Council at their December 9th meeting. We have followed developments closely since that time and find that the situation has not changed enough either in the potential for military use or in procedures for military acquisitions by a city department. The $100,000 threshold now being proposed is far too high and does not allow for transparency to the taxpayers who are footing the bill.
