I Never Called For “Community Control of the Police”

There are at least three reasons why organizing using social media is a bad idea:
(1) It robs us of the face-to-face relationship building that is necessary to develop the trust required to do anything that could challenge the state. f***book events are either toothless or a security risk.
(2) Governments and corporations have finely tuned their ability to use social media for surveillance. The recent revelations that social media platforms were giving Geofeedia, a firm used by pigs, preferential access and that only tw***er committed to not helping the government to build a Muslim registry are only two of numerous examples of how social media are our enemies.
(3) Relying and becoming dependent on corporate social media prevents us from working towards Autonomy. The decline of Indymedia, which corporate social media co-opted and fed off of, is one example of the losses our movements are suffering by organizing through social media.

The ACLU of California has obtained records showing that Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram provided user data access to Geofeedia, a developer of a social media monitoring product that we have seen marketed to law enforcement as a tool to monitor activists and protesters.
The San Diego Day in Solidarity with African People is a powerful event that addresses the role that white people can play in the struggles of the black community for self-determination and an end to the terrible conditions of police brutality, lack of economic development, disparate health and education an other issues caused by colonialism within the U.S. borders.

We call on anyone who practices art to contribute rebellious art, resistant against capitalism, to CompArte San Diego during the week of July 10-16, 2016. Capitalism uses exploitation, displacement, repression, and disdain to attack us. CompArte San Diego is the local version, here on Kumiai land, of the Zapatista Festival and Sharing Exchange ‘CompArte for Humanity.' The location for CompArte San Diego is the streets of our barrios, classrooms, gathering places, anywhere we claim as our communities.
On the weekend of February 13 and 14 of 2016, nineteen presentations were shared focusing on the border region of Southern California and Baja California. A purpose of the semillero organized by Sexta Tijuana and San Diego was to better know and understand our region to organize ourselves against Colonialism that uses Neoliberalism to try and save Capitalism from destroying itself. Each day consisted of 3 two-hour blocks of presentations. After each block, there was a 30-minute question and answer segment.
We share with community the presentations of those that wanted to share their word. We share 16 videos along with a translated summary for each presentation. --Read More--
