The Postal Service is still trying to sell the downtown Berkeley Post Office (and privatize the entire USPS). We're still trying to save it.  The Berkeley City Council will be considering a proposal in late January to help that effort, a Zoning Overlay Ordinance that will make the entire Historic District Area (including the Post Office) less attractive to private, commercial development.

To keep up the pressure on all concerned, and let them know that the people STILL do not want Post Offices sold, Berkeley Post Office Defenders invite you to twenty-four hours of activities beginning at 11:00 AM.

Activities will include

  • petition signing and flyer distribution (11-2)
  • presentations, teach-ins (11-2)
  • music (2-5), including the Funky Nixons, Phat Love, and Fresh Juice Party!
  • arts and crafts
  • dinner and a movie (6-10)
  • letter writing
  • an empathy circle
  • a study group
  • a free clothing box
  • tents and signs
  • light brigade spelling out slogans of resistance (around 7:00 PM)
Come join us! Bring your friends!

Sponsored by: Berkeley Post Office Defenders.

Brian Edwards-Tiekert as usual is doing damage control for he Democrats. When questioning Barbara Lee about the budget deal and the sell off of the post offices he forgot to ask her about the role of privateer Dick Blum and his wife Senator Diane Feinstein.

KPFA UPFRONT Host Brian Edwards-Tiekert on his 1/15/2014 program did damage control for East Bay Democrat Barbara Lee when he questioned her about the privatization and selloff of the Berkeley post office and other historical post offices around the country. Democratic Senator Diane Feinstein's husband Richard Blum owner of CB Ellis is involved in the privatization from selling the post offices off to his buddies but Brian helped cover this up by not asking Barbara Lee about who was responsible for the privatization.
As usual Brian will have programs on "socialism" with Richard Wolf but not confront and expose the capitalist politicians including the Democrats like Feinstein and her husband who are profiting from the sell off of the commons.

Barbara Lee loves union buster and privatizer Nancy Pelosi. Brian helps do damage control for these politicians.
