image Big Oil spends big money to stop fracking ban in Santa Barbara County 120_10349892_10152849099471554_1114407774871886671_n.jpg original image ( 526x194) - by Dan Bacher
The stakes are huge in this campaign by grassroots activists to stop fracking and other environmentally destructive oil extraction techniques. Documents recently obtained by the Center for Biological Diversity reveal that almost 3 billion gallons of oil industry wastewater were illegally dumped into Central California aquifers that supply drinking water and irrigation water for farms.

image Nov Election: Why You Should Boycott the Statewide Partisan Races 120_samepartyraces.jpg original image ( 300x434) - by Green Party of Alameda County
Boycotting the statewide partisan races is not much of a sacrifice, since only candidates of the two major wings of the money party will be on the ballot. We hope that a visible drop in the vote totals in these races will make a statement against Prop. 14 (Top Two).

image Governor Reveals True Intent of Prop. 1 - the Brown Water Plan 120_brown_water_plan.jpeg original image ( 554x686) - by Dan Bacher
Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla noted that Proposition 1 is closely allied to the Bay Delta Conservation Plan, a Brown scheme that is a reprise of the Peripheral Canal. The BDCP would authorize the construction of two gigantic trans-Delta tunnels that would devastate the Delta, cost $70 billion or more, and benefit corporate San Joaquin Valley farmers at the expense of citizen ratepayers.

text Bike Advocates Endorse Staunchly Anti-Poor Candidate - by Steve Schnaar
The local bicycle advocacy group People Power, part of the Progressive Coalition, is again showing their questionable progressive credentials by supporting the election of David Terrazas, part of the City's conservative Council majority that has consistently voted against the side of poor people and evidence-based policies.

"We were there Tuesday because the administration shut down the event about the privatization of a natural resource, water, at the site of resistance against the privatization of land," said Paula Jaramillo of Students for Engaged and Active Learning (SEAL). "We were shut down by someone who actively privatizes life itself through patenting GMOs."

Santa Cruz Police Department Deputy Chief Steve Clark labeled Santa Cruz City Council candidate Leonie Sherman an "anarchist" on the evening news due to the fact that she hung a banner at the WTO protest in Seattle 15 years ago.

Washington, D.C.—Today, the World Trade Organization (WTO) ruled that mandatory country of origin labels (COOL) rules for meat and poultry that went into effect in 2013 still ran afoul of the global trade rules. The WTO’s compliance panel decided that the goal of country of origin labels was not trade illegal, but it narrowly found that the implementation of the COOL rules discouraged livestock imports from Canada and Mexico.

It’s hard not to see the irony of a big oil company contributing $250,000 to a campaign for a water bond that allocates $900 million for alleged “groundwater sustainability” less than two weeks after the Center for Biological Diversity released state documents revealing that almost 3 billion gallons of oil industry wastewater were illegally dumped into Central California aquifers that supply drinking water and irrigation water for farms.

Bill Jennings, the chairman and executive director of the California Sportfishing Protection Alliance, observed the deal is bad for many water contractors, not just fisheries and the environment. “It would give Westlands a permanent water contract before all Endangered Species Act litigation is completed,” said Jennings. “In effect, this gives Westlands a leg up over other south-of-Delta contractors.” Photo of (center) Bill Jennings slamming Governor Jerry Brown's $7.5 billion w...
