UC Davis

The History of Police Militarization in the US


On Monday, November 28, 2011, students at UC-Davis occupied Dutton Hall, the University's financial center, and held an all-day teach-in. Author/Journalist/Filmmaker Charles Shaw was one of the featured speakers. Here is his talk, "The History of Police Militarization in the US."



Occupy UC Davis: The Power of Words

Some people claim the occupiers repetitive chants do nothing, other than to lull the chanters into mindless obedience to a directionless movement.   I think these critics underestimate the power of words.

This clip shows occupiers controlling the police using nothing but repetitive phrases.  It's a technique I learned to use with students when I was a teacher.  It makes sense that the police would be highly susceptible to it, since they are so indoctrinated and brainwashed beyond individual thought, to begin with.

Another amazing victory for the movement...
