On May 4th, over a hundred people gathered at the Santa Cruz Courthouse for a press conference, march, and rally organized by the Watsonville Brown Berets to demand District Attorney Bob Lee drop the charges against the Santa Cruz Eleven — local community members who have been charged with an unprecedented variety of offenses arising from their alleged involvement with the occupation of a long-time vacant bank building at 75 River Street late last fall. The Santa Cruz Eleven are either journalists and/or activists supportive of the Occupy movement.

Pocho-1 Photography was founded in Los Angeles by internationally acclaimed Liberation Photographer Pocho-1.
