“Free Commander X”   Protest Rally at San Jose Courthouse 280 S. 1st Street, San Jose, California Tuesday Noon 7-20 Keith McHenry of Food Not Bombs writes:  “Doyon was homeless in Santa Cruz and was participating in a protest against the city’s policy of dehumanizing those who live outside. According to the 2011 Federal indictment, a December 16, 2010, DDoS attack was orchestrated as part of “Operation Peace Camp 2010” in retaliation for the enforcement of the camping ban. The City of Santa Cruz enacted Section 6.36.010 of its Municipal Code, entitled “Camping Prohibited,” which contained restrictions and definitions on camping within Santa Cruz City. This sleeping ban law was made even more repressive in early June changing its title to “Camping Services and Standards Ordinance.” The law officially took effect on July 9, 2021, and could be used to justify the relocation of all unhoused to some as not yet defined facilities that could include a dusk to dawn “safe sleeping site” in a parking lot.” Chris Doyon and Keith McHenry were broadcasting a weekly live podcast from Freedom Camp at San Lorenzo Park in Santa Cruz when Commander X was extradited to the United States. This is the last program Doyon did just days before he was captured.
