CounterForce did not organize the protest against Thiel, and did not lead the marchers into the Wheeler Co...

Group says Bechtel-funded water storage study is 'half-baked' - by Dan Bacher
"We really worry about the framing of research, and the pollution of its intent and findings, when it is wholly funded by those with a massive financial stake in the outcome," said Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, Executive Director of Restore the Delta. "We also find it equally disturbing that academic leaders in water spend such little time studying, developing, and creating plans for implementing water technologies that could help alleviate problems with drought. Instead, they continue to promo...

Fuck the Regents and Fuck Jerry Brown Too - by via Education Should Be Free!
The alternative to tuition hikes proposed by Jerry Brown, the governor of California, is to turn the UCs into 3-year degree granting institutions. He wants to fire tenured faculty and lecturers and replace them with chat rooms for the profit of millionaire Stanford graduates in Silicon Valley. Online education may be a fine supplement to classroom learning, but only someone as clueless as Brown, who has never set foot in a classroom as an educator, could think that it might replace the type o...

Mayfair Organizations Host 'Community Action' Tianguis in San José - by Alex Darocy
In Mexico and Central America, a tianguis is traditionally thought of as an open air market where merchandise is sold. The word tianguis is derived from the Aztec language, and the cultural tradition has been practiced by Indigenous peoples since before colonial contact. To create a space where community organizing skills can be shared, the concept of a "community action" tianguis was created by individuals in the Mayfair community of San José. The first such Community Action Tianguis was he...
