“Any raising of the dam, even a few feet, will flood some of our last remaining sacred sites on the McCloud River – sites we still use today,” said Caleen Sisk, Winnemem Chief and Spiritual Leader. "We can't be Winnemem any place else but the McCloud River. The dam raise is a form of cultural genocide."

image New rules allow increased killing of Delta smelt as species nears extinction 120_800px-delta_smelt_fish_in_hand.jpg original image ( 800x534) - by Dan Bacher
The decision by the Obama administration to more than double the permissable "take" limit of Delta smelt at the state and federal water export facilities is simply mind-boggling, especially just two days after a California Department of Fish and Wildlife fall survey revealed that the Delta smelt has declined to a record low population level. “As goes the Delta smelt, so goes the Delta,” said Bill Jennings, the executive director of the California Sportfishing Protection Alliance. “T...

Restore the Delta and the Environmental Water Caucus told the California Water Commission that the Commission's work plan for the regulations and guidelines for implementing Chapter 8 of the water bond is "too narrow" for eligible projects. They also said the Commission should prioritize storage projects that do not require new surface water rights, and should prioritize sustainable water projects.

text Open Letter to Mayor Lane Re: Compassion and Actions vs Words - by Steve Schnaar
A response to Mayor Don Lane's invite to a day of volunteer service with Compassion Santa Cruz on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. The letter points out that King's definition of compassion calls for system change as more fundamental than charitable acts, and calls on Lane to take inspiration from King's uncompromising stance against injustice.

This morning on MLK Day, a large a boisterous group of Black Lives Matter activists showed up at the home of newly elected Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf at 5am. Armed with bullhorns, large lighted signs and radical speeches from Dr Martin Luther King where he critiques capitalism and uplift's blackness, the group was determined to be heard and make ending police terrorism a front and center issue.

Salmon, steelhead and other fish survived thousands of years of California's erratic weather, including long periods of droughts, massive floods and huge earthquakes, but they may not survive the policies of Jerry Brown, California Natural Resources Secretary John Laird and Department of Fish and Wildlife Director Chuck Bonham.

The documents below reached me about a week and a half ago. I circulated them to some activists. One interested critic of the Bearcat asked me to make them available to him. Sorry I was slow in putting out this info. They need to be carefully examined and followed up on--particularly since I believe that further anti-militarization protests are in the cards for the next City Council.

Below is a groundbreaking report on how California toxic waters are rising despite decades of regulations and an expenditure of $50 billion. This report is very timely, considering the passage of Proposition 1, Governor Jerry Brown's water bond, and the collapse of Delta smelt and other pelagic fish species and American River steelhead to record low population levels.

Among other things, we are requesting: 1) that local patients be given a greater voice in re-drafting the County cannabis ordinances; 2) that the County draft clearer and more environmentally-friendly paths to compliance for patient-cultivators, and 3) that in re-drafting the existing ordinances the County preserve the minimal diversity of choice required for patients to have proper access to quality cannabis medicine.

“California is at a crossroads," said David Braun of Californians Against Fracking and an organizer of the tour. "Our governor and our elected officials need to decide if we’re going to be a real leader on climate change, or if we will continue to allow fracking and other dangerous extractions methods that put our communities and environment at risk."

text Mayor Refuses to Postpone Repression with Quick and Dirty Decorum Rule Changes - by Robert Norse
The "decorum rule" changes proposed at City Council today are part of a long ongoing process of marginalizing, discouraging, and discrediting activists. When the community got righteously angry at the SCPD last-minute hurry-through of its armored personnel "rescue" vehicle and some members turned their back on the Council (quite legally and legitimately), Mayor Lane went into crisis mode. As a strong media critic of his and his Council around their homeless abuses, I've been punished for th...
