"Dream Bigger Than Cops & Condos": #SaveE12th Activists Takeover Oakland City Council
by Anti Police-Terror Project
On Tuesday May 5th, Black.Seed, Asians4BlackLives, and allies shut-down the Oakland City Council and held a People's City Council against a proposed development on East 12th Street. The development, up for a vote at that evening's city council meeting, includes no affordable housing and links to the larger wave of displacement being felt throughout Oakland and the bay area. According to the activists, the high-rise luxury condos include one bedrooms upwards of $3,150/month. The condos are proposed by Urban Core and real estate firm UDR. The activists stood in solidarity with the #BlackLivesMatter movement, linking gentrification to increased policing, and criminalization of Black and Brown people.
