From Activist to Terrorist: A Discussion with Will Potter and Jake Conroy

The FBI labels animal rights and environmental activists the “number one domestic terrorism threat,” and new laws turn activism into “terrorism” if it hurts corporate profits. How did this happen? Why are undercover investigators and those who use non-violent civil disobedience being treated so disproportionately? And what are the real life consequences for the activists who are investigated, and even sent to prison, as domestic terrorists? Journalist Will Potter and activist Jake Conroy will explore these questions from first hand perspectives.

Carrboro police warn Carborro commune in advance of this Saturday's CVS protest

This time the Carrboro police has been nice enough to clarify the rules ahead of time:

"Hutchison said Carrboro Commune is welcome to protest as long as everyone stays on the sidewalk and out of the street. Anyone crossing the fence onto CVS property at 201 N. Greensboro St. will be warned to leave before officers start charging people with first-degree trespass, she said. Anyone who damages the fence, the building or land will be charged with damage to real property, she added." 

Somehow I doubt that the flyer's assertion that all private property is theft is shared by many Carrboro residents.

Anarchists/Carrboro Commune Back for More

That didn't take long:  in a new blog post, the Carrboro Commune announces they're going to be doing some illegal gardening.  The fence that's supposed to be going up will prevent some of that if they can get it installed before March 8, but I imagine a fence isn't going to stop anarchists given you can either hop the fence or cut through it at night. 

The interesting thing about the announcement to me is they now have a press contact, Maria Rowan, and are linking to press coverage of the event.  I wonder if Maria will wear a black mask to the event?


Who wants to play guess what property will be taken over next?

There's only a small number of properties in Carrboro and Chapel Hill that make any sense as takeover targets, so it shouldn't be too hard to guess which one is up next.  As the incidident at the CVS site in Carrboro shows this small group isn't ready to give up, even after being subjected to the violence of ice cream and politely being asked to leave.

So, what's up next?  Greenbridge again?
