MEGA ANTI GANG INJUNCTIONS COALITION (M.A.G.I.C.)
This site is a forum between concerned citizens and community based
organizations, strategizing to defeat the hype around Youth gangs that is sweeping the
Nation, particularly in cosmetically appealing " blighted " areas targeted for
gentifrication, and currently the heavily criminalized neighborhoods of Poor
People of Color.
Hype about gangs is making more citizens fearful of minority youth, and
dangerously increasing potential for racially motivated incidents.
Although we recognize the existence of Gangs as partially at the root of the
demise of our poor communities of Color, the Hype about Gangs Injunctions
provide police less with a tool to confront gangs than with license to take action
against anyone in the area who happens to look like. "a gang member", a kid
with dreadlocks, a white T-shirt, a pre-teen or teenager hanging out after
school at the street corner by his parents' home.
In San Francisco, SFPD beat up 4 teenagers on MLK day in 2002, wrongly
assumed to be "gang members", and brutalized Marcus Law, then 14, on the same
presumption 3 years ago, both incidents in Bayview Hunters point, the poorest and
most criminalized area of the city.
SF Community is raising against the Hype, and "Managed Mayhem" carefully
crafted to proceed to "Ethnic Cleansing", and "sanitize" SF Bayview, in imminent
process of land grab by the developers.
We want to gather experiences and actions across the US, grow our strength,
within the framework of authentic Community Policing, and regain our Power over
the deadly collaboration between land grab and criminalization perpetrators.
