Video of June 15th Press Conference


Watch the video
Bill Carpenter actually published this on Indybay a while ago, but I just didn't get a chance to blog it myself until now. Now that I am facing civil contempt charges, it seems more important than ever to get this story out as far and wide as possible...

Grand Jury Update


Watch the video
Hi Everyone, I recently learned that I will be having to appear in front of Federal court next week on July 20th and that I am now facing civil contempt charges. I'm not sure how everything is going to pan out at this point, but I wanted to share with you an audio transcript that I recorded of what happened when I last appeared in front of court. It's important to note that this is my best attempt at accurately reading the court transcripts and any mistakes I may have made were unintentional; additionally, all emphasis and inflection included in the audio recording is my own and not reflected in the court transcripts.

The Judge that's currently handling the case, and who is referred to as "The Court," is actually Judge Alsup, the very same judge that just threw Barry Bond's trainer in jail...

Wish me luck, guys!

1 Year Ago...


Watch the video
It's hard to believe it's been a year since I shot this video; so much has happened since that night both in regards to my life and the incident itself.
In regards to the incident itself, the first repercussions from this footage surfaced when I discovered that various outlets in the mainstream media had been using my footage from this particular protest without my permission; this actually turned out all right: I sent them a bill for the use of my footage, and they mostly all complied.
The next event that transpired has not turned out so fortuitous: a few days after the protest, I received a visit from the FBI along with two SFPD investigators. They asked for the unedited footage and I told them I would not be able to provide them with the footage at that point in time. A few months later, they returned with a subpoena ordering me to appear in front of the Federal Grand Jury and provide the tape. I have documented this situation at length on my blog and created a resource library with everything publicly available in regards to this matter.
And, I suppose it's only fitting that I found out today, 1 year from the very same evening that this all went down, that I will have to appear in front of Federal court on Thursday, July 20th for a hearing on civil contempt charges against me.
Any support you can offer would be greatly appreciated... Thanks.

Don't Get Left Behind


Watch the video

As I've mentioned on my blog in the past, I work for an education-based cable television station run out of the Peralta Community Colleges District: peralta.TV.

I recently had a hand in creating this commercial that we've put together in an attempt to increase enrollment on the four campuses our district represents. This isn't a final version, by any means, so please feel free to comment and let me know what you like about it, and what you think can be improved.

Thanks!
