Berkeley Anti-Homeless & Anti-Food...
Anti-Homeless architecture in Berkeley, and covering up food waste, with the illusion and propagation of false environmental narratives...
New Anti-Homeless trash bins in Berkeley on Shattuck and Telegraph Avenues...
Berkeley has installed locked trash bins on commercial streets. These garbage cans do not allow access for the hungry, poor, curious, or homeless to look for food and other supplies.
Everyone that cares for the homeless should look in the garbage cans in high-pedestrian and touristed areas in the world and see the amazing food in the trash...or ask the homeless themselves...There is amazing food in the trash. Often clean and untouched and often expensive..
These Berkeley garbage cans are solar powered and "smart"- having electronics that alert city sanitation workers when it needs to be emptied...(which also reduces the need for workers and reduces employment)... this is fucking stupid and fucking wastefull.. Putting a solar panel on a trashcan gives passerbyers an illusion of environmentalism. Solar panel=environmentalism, right? This has been drilled into the public for decades... The public sees solar panel and thinks "environmental progress is made towards solving climate issue. Fat-cat El Mayor respects me, and doesn't need to be questioned on his commitment to important social matters.."
...of note is Berkeley's mayor's contributions from Bayer, the worst corporate polluter on earth, and owner of Monsanto...
Are electronic trash cans is an environmental solution? No! Trash bins have never needed electricity, and one can very easily speculate at the environmental pollution created in manufacturing this monstrosity... What a joke!
