WE have learned alot In the last month we have collected over 100 phone numbers and signatures on the following petition we are using this petition as a organizing tool and calling people to call shitty hall 510 559-7250 to protest the removal of 50 parking spaces to isolate the BULB FROM IT’S WORKING CLASS BASE.
THE RESPONSE HAS BEEN TREMENDOUS.Because of this response we have decided to go to the 2nd stage which is Love letters for the bulb campaign
The petition stated
” We the working people of the Bay Area Demand you Restore the Parking spaces at the BULB So that we can continue to have free Access with our friends,family and dogs to the SPACE we love so much”
We found 90% of the people That signed the petition to restore parking are for the bulb to stay as it is. That means, they don’t want the campers to be evicted, they want the art and they want unleashed dogs .
To us that signifies that this is a mass movement and that all we have to do is organize them the next step is to have them write TESTIMONIES OF LOVE FOR THE BULB and print them up for social media
Our base is the people who use the Bulb for art dogs good times and camping. Not the just voters of Albany but the people who come to the Bulb, many of them for years. the following two examples are not uncommon
Two weeks ago a working family man said his daughter learned how to walk at the Bulb she is now 12 years old and was walking with him.
three weeks ago I met another man with three kids and he said his son Zane who was about 9 years old and digging the monsters faces by Mad Marc’s Castle came out there when he was 4 yrs old and said at that time “this place is magic.”
Come join US and meet the people and hear there stories.
My sign says “Don’t Club The Bulb: Fight The One Percent”
