Bathrobespierre’s Broadsides archived today & netcast 9:30 AM-3 PM today July 19, 2020 covering defund police actions in Santa Cruz and homeless resistance in Seaside plus 11-22-91 Flashback to anti-Police Violence Forum

Today’s 7-19-20  show description will also be posted at  It and other shows are now again available on the archives at  Sorry for the long delay, but the archives have been repaired!

The next City Council meeting (unless they announce a sudden 24-hour- notice-only “Special” session again as they did on July 2nd) will be the second Tuesday in August.  This–without extensive public protest will likely be a public-excluded (unless you have a tv or computer) meeting, again largely ignoring the Defund the Police demands made repeatedly at the last three Council sessions by an overwhelming majority of those calling in.  It’s likely only strong visible loud public protests may get the Council (and more important–the City’s) attention.   Look for announced protest times on line and from those you know.  FOLKS WILL BE GATHERING TOMORROW JULY 20TH AT 9 PM AT TOWN CLOCK FOR A DEFUND-THE-POLICE RALLY & DIRECT DIALOGUE WITH ALL POLITICIANS & POLICE WHO WANT TO ATTEND.
