The talk is at 6:30pm on Monday, February 4th at Cabrillo College in Aptos. The event is free (as in "free beer"), but a large turnout is expected, so an RSVP is strongly recommended.
Kinetic Poetics Project Festival at UC Santa Cruz
Sunday, February 3rd, is the first night of Kinetic Poetics Project, a five day poetry and spoken word festival at UCSC's Porter College Theater. Each night, the Kinetic Poetics Project provides a space for local and student poets to showcase their work for the community and highlights an established poet. As a supplement to the featured poets' performances, the Kinetic Poetics Project has arranged free poetry and writing workshops facilitated by the poets themselves.

Police Surveillance at the Farmers Market Drum Circle
Perched in the stairwell of the UCSC extension building, Santa Cruz police officer Auldridge was filming the drum circle and Food Not Bombs at the Farmers' Market on January 30th, presumably with regards to the new "15 minute parking lot rule." The filming was interrupted when a man began waving a "Don't Tread On Me" flag in front of the camera. After being blocked by the flag for several minutes and being observed by a growing crowd, the officer left the building and waved to the camera.

The Faces of Latin Music
Peter Maiden, Photo Coordinator for Indybay, is currently showing his pictures of Latin Music, shot for Latin Beat Magazine, Timba.com, and many other publications. The show includes 16 digital prints in black and white and color, and covers the years 1998-2007. The photos are on display at 1705 Mission Street in Santa Cruz and will remain up throughout the month of February.
Disabled with Only 30 Minutes to Spare
The Santa Cruz Municipal Code Chapter 9.64 concerns the use of public parking lots and garages and was later amended to apply to all downtown public lots, and went into affect in mid-November, 2007. The law prohibits any person from staying in a parking garage or lot for more than 15 minutes and then only if you're parking or retrieving your car or bike. If you're disabled and can prove it, you have 30 minutes.
Gabriela LeÃ³n: Sunday Walk to the ZÃ³calo of Oaxaca
The exhibition "Sunday Walk to the ZÃ³calo of Oaxaca" is a multi-media artistic response to the popular revolt and resistance that unfolded in Oaxaca in 2006 and the first traveling solo exhibition outside of Mexico for artist Gabriela LeÃ³n. Some of the elements of the exhibition consist of a "barricade dress" made of barbed-wire, tire treads and mattress springs found amidst the detritus; a video projection of the artist wearing the dress walking among protestors and police; a sound installation that evokes the voices of the crowds; and tarps inspired by the temporary living structures during the lengthy protest. The exhibit is at UC Santa Cruz until March 8th.
Santa Cruz Indymedia is a member of the Independent Media Center network with a focus on local issues and the direct impact of larger issues on the communities in the Monterey Bay Area. Santa Cruz Indymedia is not a membership organization; it is a tactic, a concept, and a movement that can be effectively utilized in many different ways.
