Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
CLMP started in 1983 as the Southern Humboldt/Northern Mendocino community’s reaction to ongoing and intensive law enforcement activities aimed at interrupting the marijuana/cannabis cultivation. Three separate but related parts are included in this Civil Liberties Monitoring Project Collection: Office files, audiotapes (most from radio shows aired on KMUD), and the 2016 CLMP website that, since 2018, is hosted on the Humboldt Area Peoples Archive webpage.
CLMP existed from 1983 to 2023 when it gave up its nonprofit organizational status. CLMP’s legal actions led to a limiting of CAMP’s powers and also established (in 1986) the court appointed monitor to oversee CAMP activities. Other activities impacted Humboldt County’s Code Enforcement powers and CHP’s pretext stopping of motorists and nonconsensual searches.
4 Cubic feet (or boxes) and 86? audio tapes. Additional materials donated in 2023, unprocessed as of March 2024.
CLMP retained copyright for the duration of the organization’s existence and shared it with Humboldt Area Peoples Archive. When CLMP ended in 2023, all publication rights were given to HAPA.
The files are open for research by appointment. Appointments can be arranged by contacting the Archivist. The tape recordings will be available after they are digitized/reformatted. The CLMP website is accessible at https://humboldtareaarchive.org/civil-liberties/
