RELENTLESS ATTACK ON BULB COLLECT PHONE NUMBERS TO BUILD WORKING CLASS BASS OF SUPPORT contact orion 510 541 3835 or ohohorion99 [at] gmail.com



AMBER WHITSON one of the most out spoken residents and 6 years living at the bulb WAS DENIED ACCESS TO THE HOMELESS SHELTER AT THE BULB FEB 17 MONDAY NIGHT 7PM ISH ALSO ART TREE IS IN PEREL SEE LATEST POST FROM HER .

ALERT: EBRPD is about to be cutting much of the plant life that lines the High Road!!! The scheduled dates for this butchery are February 13-20 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. This is in association with the Albany Beach Improvement Project. I submitted comments to EBRPD regarding their EIR stating that there is no people living within the project boundaries (because there IS). They said that there wasn’t. They plan to widen the road enough to use it for construction vehicle access. The path that they are about to widen presently has people living in the areas that they are about to clear cut. I believe the art tree is in danger as well. We need people and Art. Especially Art! We need footage of the Park District mowing down and removing the Art, just as they plan to do once the Bulb is theirs! There is nothing we can do to stop this “vegetation management” from occurring. There probably isn’t anything that we can do about the Project… However, I still believe that we may have a chance at stopping them from taking the Bulb and destroying what so many have created over the years! Spread the word!end of her post .

WE NEED YOU TO HELP BUILD A BASE JOIN US SUNDAY 12PM TO 3PM call orion at 510 541 3835 or email ohohorion99 [at] gmail.com to help Above all VISIT THE BULB and take your friends there NOW!

WE have over 75 phone numbers and signatures on the following petition we are using this petition as a organizing tool and calling people to call shitty hall 510 559 7250 to protest the removal of 50 parking spaces to isolate the BULB FROM IT’S WORKING CLASS BASE.
THE RESPONSE HAS BEEN TREMENDOUS.
the petition states.” We the working people of the Bay Area Demand you Restore the Parking spaces at the BULB So that we can continue to have free Access with our friends,family and dogs to the SPACE we love so much”

90% of the people sign the petition to restore parking are for the bulb to stay as it is that means they don/t want the campers to leave they want the art and they want unleashed dogs .
to me that signifies that this is a mass movement and that all we have to do is organize them to action a phone blast may be the first step
we need YOU TO JOIN THIS EFFORT get phone numbers and get people to call shitty hall individually and then call in a Blast. please contact me by phone or email if you want to help the next signature and phone number gathering is sunday feb 24th at the entrance to the bulb by the picnic bench a great veiw of the bay while we talk to our future base.
my spiel is “DO YOU KNOW THEY ARE DESTROYING THIS PLACE ? OVER HALf say NO OUR BASE IS THE PEOPLE WHO USE THE BULB FOR ART DOGS GOOD TIMES AND CAMPING

not the voters of albany but the people who come to the bulb many of them for years Two weeks ago a working family man said his daughter learned how to walk at the bulb she is now 12 years old and was walking with him.

this last sat i met another man with three kids and he said his son Zane who was about 9 years old and diggin the monsters FACES by mad marcs castle came out there when he was 4 yrs old and said “this place is Magic.”

Come join US sunday noon to 3pm and meet the people and hear there stories It would be great if we could print some of them up
my sign says “DON/T CLUB THE BULB FIGHT THE ONE PERCENT .
