Recently their windows were shot and shattered on two occasions with what appeared to be a metal pellet. Similar shots were fired three times to the neighboring business, Hercules Records. These incidents took place following Republican and Pro-Trump rallies at UC Berkeley. They have strong reason to believe that these were hate-related crimes targeted at their justice posters, specifically their Black Lives Matter poster, which Hercules Records also displays. These violations have brought up a lot of turmoil for members of the collective, as many of their members are workers of color. These incidents have propelled their existing conversations around ethical, cop-free security as they want to protect their space in a manner that aligns with their values and avoids involving the police.
In these times of state violence and great injustice, they invite you to join them for a Community Healing & Celebration Circle. They will have:
- Food & drink to share
- Teachings on non-oppressive safety strategies
- Freedom songs/ community healers
- Sacred ritual to protect our space
Friends in the community created a fund to help cover the cost of their new windows. Please consider donating.
