I have been to the past two march’s against the white nationalist gatherings in Berkeley on March 4th and this past April 15th. My primary goal was to provide medical aid to my comrades and learn more, from a street level, about the antifa movement and the threat of fascism that seems to be growing....

document Struggle Against Sleeping Ban Becomes a Matter of Survival at City Hall suggestions_for_survival_sleepers.pdf_140_.jpg by Robert Norse
For the last 10 nights since the Winter Shelter program ended (a month earlier than Berkeley's or Salinas's), some of its refugees have been camped at City Hall, spending their nights and some of their days there as well. Some are arrayed just outside the offices of Mayor Cynthia Chase and the same Council majority that kept sleeping a crime in a Council vote last spring. I've written a flyer or two about the issue & distributed it at "liberal" activist gatherings like the Indivisible rally...

Pacifica Foundation interim Executive Director Bill Crosier addressed members of the 5-station radio network after it became known that at least one of the KPFA Local Station Board members, with others, has secretly contacted celebrities and prominent supporters of progressive causes, falsely claiming that Pacifica is “collapsing”, and asking them to be on the board of a new nonprofit organization which would seek to acquire Pacifica's assets, or at least those of station KPFA....

text Oakland may lose more than $23,273,476 in proposed federal budget cuts by Lynda Carson
As a result of the proposed budget cuts to HUD, the Oakland Housing Authority may lose 611 or more Section 8 vouchers (Housing Choice Vouchers), placing hundreds of elderly, disabled, chronically ill, and low-income renters at risk of homelessness. The widespread damage that will occur to Oakland’s affordable housing programs if the proposed budget cuts to HUD take effect, will place thousands of Oakland renters at risk of higher rents, and homelessness!...

The City of Santa Cruz is proposing to build a new five-level parking garage above a new relocated city library on the parking lot bordered by Lincoln, Cedar and Cathcart Streets, where the Farmer's Market currently meets. We strongly believe that the City should implement a Commuter Benefits Program first, before it considers the construction of a much more costly garage....

For the Yurok Tribe, who have fished the Klamath for thousands of years, the looming closure will also be an “unprecedented disaster,” according to Amy Cordalis, the Tribe’s General Counsel, a Yurok Tribe member and fisherwoman. Her family lives and fishes in Requa at the mouth of the Klamath River. ““This is the worst year in history for Klamath salmon,” said Cordalis. “There is no mystery as to why. The effects of an unprecedented drought were exacerbated by dams and diversions. This ye...

The Justice & Honor for Luís Góngora Pat Coalition has created an autopsy diagram based on the official report of the Office of the Medical Examiner. We believe the Office of the Medical Examiner did not include a diagram to avoid giving the public a visual image of the harm done to Luis. We believe the public is entitled to as full transparency as possible around the facts of the case. As we learn more facts, we will adjust and improve our narrative of what happened that day....

There have been nearly two years of weekly overnight protests on the sidewalks adjoining City Hall (the Freedom Sleepers) and a month of nightly protests (a group I call the Survival Sleepers) at the same spot. Now, the day after Fuhrer Trump has directly attacked Syria, escalating to the brink of nuclear war, SCPD attacked the poor sheltering themselves under the eaves of the City Hall and arrested Freedom Sleeper Abbi Samuels as she videoed the abuse. The Winter Shelter program (shelterin...
