Dolores Park in San Francisco DESTROYED - is Peoples' Park in Berkeley NEXT?
Dolores Park, an Indigenous Sacred Site and iconic San Francisco city park, has been destroyed by the forces of gentrification, and we believe that Muwekma [Peoples'] Park in Berkeley is next.
If you go by S.F.'s Dolores Park these days, you'd hardly recognize it. It has been so thoroughly bulldozed it now looks like another construction site. The desecration of this Indigenous Sacred Site that started with the building of the Mission Dolores hundreds of years ago continues to this day.
THIS JUST IN: At about 1:30 on the afternoon of Mon., July 14th, Zachary Runningwolf, an Indigenous Elder and well-known Bay Area activist, was arrested in Muwekma Park. He has been charged with 3 misdemeanors; obstructing a police officer, vandalism, and possession of a weapon on school grounds. The arraignment takes place on July 16th at 2pm in Dept. 112 at Wile E. Coyote courthouse at 7th and Washington Sts. in Oaktown.
Runningwolf has been raising the alarm about the imminent threat to the Park, so the timing of his arrest is highly suspect, further confirming our belief that Boss Hogg University is coming for our Park.
See you in the Park;] A-ho.
