This essay gets it right. After all, the American people claiming democratic rights is just oh so inconvenient for the 1% and their representatives. Oakland’s municipal legal experiments are part of a national project to destroy American civil liberties. Tactics and strategies for repression, as well as legal innovations, to make the American people “sit down and shut up” are doubtless being shared across jurisdictions nationally. Stand up, fight back!
