Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; to keeping information available and free; and to not only fighting for personal privacy, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same. All these efforts find representation on her blog "ah, Mephistophelis," so named after the last line of Chirstopher Marlowe's in his famous Dr. Faustus, which, as some would have it, successfully flouted the censor for a time. A female Faust, she is a poet, always.

The Protests Will Continue Until The Cops Improve

The harassment, harsh tactics, batch arrests, over-high bail amounts, specious charges, and injuries in the past month have gotten so bad that #OccupyOakland has decided to protest weekly until "the bullshit stops." This is the first one, as far as I am aware, and already the helicopters are buzzing overhead, and the Storm-Troopers-in-Black are deploying.

The helicopters were buzzing loudly in the sky again -- actually, this time only one.  Last time the helicopters didn't even start until there was Riot Cop Deployment.  They must be running out of money.  That would surely be one of the objectives.

Here is the stream -- click through for the archive.  Also see the twitter feed for #Occupy Oakland (hashtag #oo) to your right.

The protests will continue until police improve.

Be seeing you.
