Harlem Community CopWatch, Friday April 13th - 8pm

Harlem CopWatch, Friday April 13th at the Harlem State House between 125th and 126th and 6th Ave at 8pm Members of the Campaign Against the New Jim Crow, OWS, Liberation Summer, and other organizations against racial injustice are planning to flood Harlem streets with Cop Watchers on Friday the 13th. The action will involve activists filming police as they engaging in stop-and-frisk or make arrests. After the police have left the scene, a media van will arrive to project videos about racial injustice and rights violations, hand out flyers on the subject, and generally speak with and reach out to people in the neighborhood. The group is requesting legal observervation to discourage police from arresting filmers, as in the case of Jazz Hayden, who has been arrested for filming police and who will be participating in the event. There will likely be multiple groups of CopWatchers working simultaneously.

OWS Media Team Raided by NYPD, Again - Is the media on the NYPD Terrorist watch list?

 The People who've been bringing us the great live-stream coverage from the start of Occupy Wall Street on Global Revolution have been raided yet another time by the NYPD.


RT.Com - The New York City headquarters of a group cooperating with the Occupy Wall Street movement was swarmed by the NYPD on Tuesday in a raid that left half a dozen people involved with the website in police custody.

Cops entered the Bushwick studio used by Global Revolution on Tuesday after posting a notice on the door of the space occupied by the group the night before. According to authorities, the space at 13 Thames St in the Brooklyn, NY neighborhood hosted conditions “imminently perilous to life” and had to be vacated by all occupants, although failed to provide any details on what factors had led to such a case. When cops returned the next day and found a handful of people on the premises, they were arrested.

The space used by Global Revolution was the only one that was targeted by the police.

Global Revolution, a website that aggregates live, streaming content pertaining to the ongoing Occupy Wall Street movement, was using the space as a production studio to manage the video output fed to the website.

Nigel Parry, an organizer with Global Revolution, tells The Atlantic Wire that the group had only recently moved into the space for production purposes. While details are scarce regarding the actual inhabitants of the space, Vlad Teichberg, one of the key figures involved with Global Revolution, was living at the site when he was arrested Tuesday. According to Parry, Teichberg had been a resident of the space on Thames St. for at least a year.

On Wednesday afternoon, Teichberg and five others were still in police custody for charges of trespassing, obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest.

The Bushwick, Brooklyn location raided by the police has been the site of the Global Revolution production studios since as recently as December. Previously the organization operated out of Zuccotti Park, the Lower Manhattan hub of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
