The event was thrown by the Conservative Party and those in attendance represented a whose whose of the most reactionary right wing monarchist demagogues in current political scene.
ACAC All Cops Are Creepy Fucks on having cops spy on your friends bedroom window and other such things6 Aug
There is only one thing I learned while in the cell i laid the pigs will never leave us UNTIL THEY ARE BLOWN AWAY-traditional Irish song remix
So the last few days have been quite fucked as I cant get a bloody moments peace without some bloody pig following me, and im not just talking about in Kitchener. On Wednesday night I went to Toronto to go to the docter to check out how fucked up my foot is. I accidentally left my cell phone which only works on wifi in a friends car and went to visit another friend. After several hours of hanging out I decided to log onto my facebook and then go for a Poke walk with my friend. Upon our return we saw two cops coming out of the backyard of my friends house. They were parked two blocks down which is fucken strange as anyone who knows pigs knows they always park in front of your house on the side walk taking up as much space as possible to show that they are big men. The cops were acting all awkward and we were trying our best to pretend not to see them looking at my friends phone pretending to catch a drowser pokemon and as they passed by us it was quite comical.
A wee fact about the neighborhood we were hanging out in and where my friend lives. It is quite affluent and one of the richest neighborhoods in Toronto. There never is police there and the fact that we saw two cops on foot walking to a car they parked quite far away was quite a sight in such a neighborhood. There was no legitimate reason for the pigs to be in that area esp not in my friends backyard.
The backyard is where my friends bedroom window is and to have cops spying on what goes on in my friends bedroom honestly quite fucken creepy. Like think about what the fuck were they doing spying at a bedroom window. This sort of creepyness is quite reminiscent of G20 bullshit where cops had pages and pages of me having sex giving graphic description of positons and who i was fucking. This shit is reminiscent of pigs spying on my coaccussed through there back windows or getting jobs at coffee shops so they could serve us fucken coffee and such.
My friend was quite annoyed, not at me but at the police. It was pointed out that now because of affiliation with me they would constantly come under harassment intimidation and surveillance by the pigs as this affiliation is not only know but confirmed. If they think we are fucking, which we are not, things will just get worst and my friend will be seen as a pressure point that police can use to get to me, someone that they can hurt to teach me a lesson.
One of the things that pissed me off about the g20 was not that political events was monitered but rather the attacks on my personal life. We cant prove Julian is breaking the law so lets slander them as much as possible humilate them by making their sex life and sexual choices public knowledge and watch where the peaces fall. If you are trying to spy on me for 32 stuff or tent city stuff or other political things fair play, you have a job to do and I have a job to do which is to resist you, but why the fuck bring my personal life into this, why drag my friends some who have stepped back from politics due to repression into this and why the fuck are you spying on a fucken back window of someones bedroom.
Later when I went to catch my bus back to Kitchener the pigs were sitting at Bay and Dundas (the greyhound station) monitering what bus i get on and such shit so i jumped on the first bus to Hamilton and took the scenic route back. Several hours and quite a few dollars later i was back in Kitchener.
The next day I talked about this and other stuff on the radio which led to another police chase that you can read about on my facebook while me and my friends sent them on a wild goose chase I was thinking about what my friend in Toronto said. Its hard to be friends with you and invite you in my home because inviting you means inviting police and survailllance and attack into my home. What the police is doing is creating the conditions where I am to be isolated by my friends and family making the cost of being my friend too high. This reality is a sad fact to be friends with me comes at a high price. They think that by doing this and applying pressure to my friends they will break me and honestly it hurts my that my friends suffer because of me, it hurts me that my choice to be a political organizor around the G20 led to the death of my mom, whom i watched in front of my eyes starve to death from my arrest in July till her death in september and I acknowledge and recognise the fact that I am at least partially responsible for her death and my choices are what lead to her death. It hurts me that I cant openly say to people I care about I love, but if they think that this can break me they are mistaken cause at the end of the day capitalism kills many peoples moms friends and familys and the lives of those close to me are not worth more then the lives of the people being bombed and starved to death. Like the song says our tearts have transformed to stone now sharpened on suffering and woven into slings, hope lies in the rubble of this rich fortress taking today what tommorrow never bring.
The pigs are fucked they are the armed wing of a colonialist state built on genocide, they fight without honor and care not whom they hurt or kill. In the face of this all i can say is the words of Bobby Sands they have nothing in their arsenal that can break the spirit of those fighting for freedom
Today at the Mill Courtland Community Center emergency housing workers, welfare workers, ID Clinic workers and others are fast tracking peoples applications to get them out of tents and into homes. We think that this is a positive development and a good way to deral with the tent city issue, namely putting people into homes instead of chasing them around. With this victory creating the conditions to end the crisis that gave birth to tent city we look forward to the completion of this process and the people being housed.

please leave a msg as it is quite rare that a human answers any number for any of the police bureaucrats.
Today police have called in complaints to the City and bylaw to try to force us out of the place where we are currently set up. Furthermore police that should be under his control are currently preparing to evict us if we do not leave the area where we are now. These actions are in sharp contrast to the tweet he sent earlier stating that police are not involved in evictions of tent city.
Furthermore this action of police agents which are suppose to be under his control are sabotaging our negotiations which we currently are engaged in with the region to solve the current issue by addressing the root issue which is that people have no place to live. The more time we spend dealing with this bullshit the less time we have to spend preparing for Wednesdays meeting to get the people into housing. If the tent city so bothers the police then they should back off and allow us to get people into housing so that there will be no need for people to be at tent city.
As such we are asking people to call Larkin and tell him in a polite but firm way to back off and keep his goons in line
Today people from Tent City met with the Region and the city for the purpose of finding decent housing fit for human beings. The meeting started with all the people at the table stating why they were there. This was followed by a discussion about the problems people face when looking for housing and the dangers that people face inside shelters and why shelters are not solutions. Among those who have had life experience in shelters the consensus was that tent city was much much safer then shelters and that the shelter system as is clearly can not accommodate vulnerable individuals.
After a lengthy debate where people talked about safety concerns that poor people have about shelters etc. we were told that every name on our list for housing was inactive and as such their files need to be updated and made active, and that this is a first step to speeding up the process. It was stated to people and all agreed that the issue of housing these people could not drag on forever.
The region then handed us folders with the names of all the people we gave them that had the necessary paper work to update their files as active as well as to give these people emergency status. Another meeting was set up for Wednesday at 11am which would also include a welfare worker where these forms will be handed in and these individuals could meet one on one with the necessary people to put them into housing.l Until this issue is settled it was agreed that the policy towards tent city from the city of don’t go looking for us will continue as people have nowhere to go till they get into housing and the need for tent city still exists. We look forward to the meeting Wednesday and moving forward together to house people.
They are still a rich mans police force they serve the rich mans state they’ll fucken charge the workers on the orders of the great they’ll use their fathers weapons to move against the free, ohh they’ll always be the RUC to me- C. Murphy
As those who are following my blog know we are currently in negotiations with the city, the region and By Law. We have had cordial discussion with By Law and these groups and the dialogue is clearly in everyone’s interest. Yet yesterday the police once again showed up to our new site where we moved with a measuring tape to see how far we were from the tracks etc and they called in a complaint to the city.
The city did not remove us as it is not in their interest to do so. Yet the police, which is suppose to be part of the judiciary and unbiased in political matters called in a complaint to the city. Furthermore upon further investigation individual officers have been calling complaints in to the city for a bit.
This is interesting for two reasons 1. The police falls under the jurisdiction of the region if the region is telling the cops to chill then whose orders are they following? Whom are they accountable to? Do they just do whatever they want and respond to no one? By definition this is a police force gone rouge. The second interesting thing is that the police is suppose to investigate complaints not file them particularly if it is a complaint of a political nature. Why is the police force not only acting in a bias manner but totally abusing the complaint system? After all they are their to investigate complaints not make them.
To add further fuel to the fire Brian Larkin the Chief of police just said that the police were not involved in Evictions of tent city in a response to a tweet by one Dan Keller from sound fm. This could mean two things, 1. That Brian Larkin thinks everyone is stupid and that whole neighborhoods don’t notice police harassing and evicting us or that Larkin has no control of his police force and his officers have gone rouge.
Since i like to give people the benefit of the doubt and I like to take people for their word when the cops show up to tent city or any of the tent city satellites it might be wise to advise everyone to ignore them as they are not following orders and if they attempt to remove us to place those officers under citizens arrest since they are responsible to no one and are doing what they want. Maybe we can move back to the old site as Larkin stated their was no police involvement for eviction and therefore the eviction does not exist. In any case the next visit from the police to our site will be interesting as for sure we will now ignore these rouge officers who are not even following the orders of their chief.
After much consultation and discussion we have reached an agreement to have our first sit down with the Region and others involved to solve the homeless problem that gave rise to tent city by finding people affordable housing as well as necessary resources so people can maintain their housing. We thank everyone who has supported our just demands and send solidarity to the Tent City’s in Vancouver and other places still struggling for justice. We also would like to thank our international allies in Latin America for the political support, as well as those comrades in Ireland, particularly the 32CSM our sister organization and Kevin Patrick Meehan an amazing comrade whom I eventually hope to meet and have real coffee with not that instant shite they serve in Belfast.
