Santa Barbara disaster inevitable with Big Oil's capture of regulatory apparatus - by Dan Bacher
The oil spill that began off Refugio State Beach was inevitable, when you consider the capture of the regulatory apparatus by the oil industry in California. Until people challenge the power of Big Oil in California and the industry's control over the state and federal regulatory agencies, we will see more of the Refugio-type of oil spill disasters in the future.

#FuckTheCurfew or Don't Worry, No One Broke a Window (video/mp4 87.4MB) - by via Peter Menchini
Oakland Mayor Libby Schaff says she hasn't changed police policy regarding protests, but a leaked memo shows she lied. As people who care about black lives protest her illegal decision, her police show how they treat people differently, depending on the color of their skin. Meanwhile, casual racists are untroubled, since no one has broken any windows. Meanwhile, police continue to murder black and brown people with near impunity.

Reporting Oakland police violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms - by Occupy For Human Rights
Violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms by the Oakland Police can be reported to the Human Rights Council of the United Nations. Testimonials are read by the Working Group on Communications and the Working Group on Situations. Arguments can be made that the situation in Oakland meets the criteria for the complaint procedure.

Be careful what you complain about because, you may become responsible for it. I complain that there are no public restrooms downtown after 10pm (for people who can't access businesses). There is ONLY ONE 24Hour bathroom in downtown and it only gets cleaned 3 times per week. City Councilperson Micah Posner challenged me to step up and clean it myself and he would too.
