Berkeley is Trying to Buy a Giant Armored Vehicle!

May 15, 2012

We Don’t Need a Tank! We Need Police Accountability! Say NO to Mutual Aid Pacts with Federal Agencies!

 

STOP THE FEDERALIZATION OF BERKELEY POLICE
BERKELEY CITY COUNCIL MEETING
TUESDAY MAY 15, 2012
6pm Rally on the steps of City Hall (MLK and Center Street)

 

Come and Speak out at the Tuesday May 15, 2012 City Council, 7pm Old City Hall at 2134 M.L. King Jr. Way, Berkeley.

 

Berkeley is violating its own laws! The Berkeley Municipal Code requires that Police Department (PD) Agreements be reduced to writing and presented to the City Council for approval.

 

NCRIC*, the Spying program, and UASI**, the urban warfare program, are merely verbal agreements coordinated with the FBI and Homeland Security. These programs expire June 30, 2012. Being in violation of local law they must not be renewed or allowed to continue without Council action.

 

*The Northern California Regional Intelligence Center program encourages police “spying’ on persons involved in non-criminal behaviors: taking a photo of a building, buying fertilizer, wearing a headscarf or turban, and then sending a Suspicious Activity Report to NCRIC.


**The Urban Areas Security Initiative, through Urban Shield conducts urban warfare exercises with local police departments.

 

Also ask that the Berkeley PD not respond to mutual aid requests for purely First Amendment activities and not respond to, or request aid from jurisdictions that use brutal tactics and/or so-called non-lethal weapons.
