Rally, then March to Diane Feinstein’s office
1 Post St. (corner of Market & Montgomery)
Protest the closing of US Post Offices, especially the Berkeley Main Post Office. Richard Blum, Diane Feinstein’s husband, stands to profit mightily from the sale of the Berkeley Post Office.
Up for sale is the historic Berkeley main post office. Billionaire real estate mogul Blum is chairman of CBRE, the largest commercial real estate company in the world, which has the exclusive contract to sell off some 70 post offices in the US. Blum is also a regent of UC, where he’s been working to privatize the University just as he’s involved in privatizing the Postal Service.
