Re: “JR Valrey Is an Agent Provocateur

I think this article was a fine example of actual journalism, like this guy or not. I think that Oakland Resident makes some valid points, though you forget that South Africa was also the scene of the worlds first truth and reconciliation committees, where abhorrent monsters were confronted by the communities they terrorized, and then not jailed, because, well, jail and prison are cages that don't do anything for anyone.

I would say, and I'll write to the author personally, that charges were NOT dropped for folks involved on the 7th & 14th of January, rather d.a. orloff chose to file no charges which means he has a year to do so. I think it's crucial that people understand that.

On a pettier note, I reject the assertion that "white anarchists" who are "middle class" are trying to battle racism in east oakland and not their own neighborhoods. As a black female anarchist, I feel you miss the point. If you're interested in more than base accusations, I'd be happy to engage in dialogue with you.

Thanks for your hard work.
