Berkeley city manager wages dirty war on downtown Berkeley post office action
The Berkeley city manager is unhappy about an ongoing direct-action encampment taking place outside the beleagured old post office building in downtown Berzerkeley. So, possibly against the wishes of the Berkeley mayor and council, is trying to run the activists out on a rail.
As part of Boss Hogg University [UC Berkeley]'s ongoing downtown Berkeley landgrab, UC regent Richard Blum is attempting to buy the post office building in downtown Berkeley and evict the post office. So far, that action has been thwarted by the efforts of many Berkeley citizens, including a direct-action encampment at the downtown Berkeley P.O.. This has gotten the attention of Berkeley city manager Christine Daniel, who, despite the proclaimed support of Berkeley mayor Tom Bates and the Berkeley city council for the action and for keeping the downtown P.O. in its current location, is engaging in a campaign of harassment, slander and innuendo against the encampment action.
