Guerilla "No on XL Pipeline" Action in Mark Zuckerberg's SF Neighborhood

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has got some new digs in San Francisco.

Initiated by the Keystone XL Action Council, activists projected giant outdoor screenings about Keystone XL in his new neighborhood to creatively birddog Mr. Zuckerberg.
Facebook's Zuckerberg is part of an emerging Silicon Valley elite that is organizing and playing dirty big money politics, which has led to buying pro Keystone XL pipeline and ANWR drilling ads to bribe politicians to vote their way on high tech immigrant worker issues.

Environmental activists came out to a location near 21st and Church St. in San Francisco on June 1 to let Mr. Zuckerberg know they have a message. They walked up the middle of 21st Street carrying an XL Pipeline mock-up and wearing hazmat costumes.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has reportedly purchased a new home near that location. A neighbor called police to the scene when they saw the slide screening about the XL Pipeline and heard one of the protesters reading aloud a message directed to Zuckerberg and his cohort of anti-environmentalists. The man making the complaint referred to Mr. Zuckerberg as "Mark" and tried to redirect the protesters to a different location.

There were no arrests.

Get off Facebook fellow activists. Quit supporting a right wing Republican. Find progressive social media or create our own. Quit supporting the Fascists!

I think Zuckerberg really needs to have his head examined as his Facebook is losing members by the thousands due to its lack of privacy and precisely at a time when we need some good press, he turns around and as his political wing come out in favor of the Keystone XL pipeline, despite the fact that it has such wide public opposition.

Maybe next month of the amount they were of limited nuclear war, too!

People are always going to have their reservations about individuals like Mark Zuckerberg, big time tech elite members. But that's life, people need to focus on setting up their own thing, because it's a dog eat dog world, I'm in the computing world, writing diagnostic guides on fixing slow streaming video issues, and it's something I intend to grow to considerable heights, I don't think I'd like it if people started to scrutinize ever little decision I decided to take.
