Feds raid activists' HQ


UC Berkeley campus police, FBI agents, and an Alameda County sheriff raided the Long Haul Infoshop Wednesday morning (Aug. 27) with guns drawn, seizing all computers and other gear. The computers taken included those used by the Slingshot Collective. According to Bay Area Indymedia, police broke down doors, raided cabinets, cut locks, and scattered sorted mail. Police said they were searching for equipment that may have been used to commit a felony. The warrant did not describe the alleged crimes, did not identify any specific organization housed within the building, or name any suspects. Long Haul hosts several other organizations, including the Needle Exchange, East Bay Prisoner Support, and a zine library. The seizure will interfere with the publication of the next issue of Slingshot. This is the first time the long-standing community center has been raided.
