Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: first, to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; last to not only fighting for personal privacy & the freedom of information, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same. She is a poet, always. All these efforts find representation here: "ah, Mephistophelis" is so named after the last line of Christopher Marlowe's Dr. Faustus, whose heretical success flouted the censor for a time.

Oakland Police Say It Went Like This:

Of course they always tell the truth......

“On January 14, 2012, at 8:00 p.m. a crowd of approximately 125 persons peacefully assembled at Frank H. Ogawa Plaza. Oakland Police facilitated a circuitous march through the downtown streets of Oakland between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 11:00p.m.

Although social media sites had indicated that individuals or groups planned to target police personnel, police vehicles, property, and media vans, there were no reports of violence, arson, vandalism, or injury.  A total of two arrests were made – one for an individual observed blocking the roadway with a garbage dumpster, and the other for interfering in that arrest.  Objects, debris, and barricades have been set on fire during past marches.”
