Angry activists protesting closures, cutbacks, and laws against the homeless community held their fourth meal under the banner "Homeless Lives Matter!" They served their fourth breakfast around the corner from the Homeless Services Center, which I call the “Homeless (Lack of) Services Center” [HLOSC]. Its director, Jannan Thomas, announced cutbacks in services and shelters in May, announcing an end-of-June shut down the meals, laundry, shower, and restroom services previously availabl...

At their latest monthly sit-in, community members protesting the sit-lie ban in Monterey sat freely on the sidewalk on Alvarado Street for the first time since beginning their protests. At each of the four previous sit-ins, demonstrators were pressured to discontinue the protest, either by the police or by downtown business owners. They have been gathering on Alvarado Street monthly since February to oppose the new Monterey ordinance, which outlaws sitting or lying on commercial sidewalks in ...

text Who Is Destroying Berkeley's People's Park? - by People's Park Is Not Over
People once associated with the People's Park community are tapping out, as UC Berkeley makes further incursions into the space. Former Park allies are ending their support for People's Park, and some are even raiding what they can as they make their exit. The People's Park website is under control of people who have no intention of updating the Park's internet presence, and the People's Park funds have been absconded with. People's Park is being dismantled by individuals who have given up th...

This week the Santa Cruz County Grand Jury released its annual jail report, which is based on their inspection of county detention facilities from January to April of 2015.

text Gentrification and the Corporate Structure - by Steve Martinot
Though affordable housing is in great need in the Bay Area, and in particular, in Berkeley, two things stand in the way of fulfilling that need, and push development toward the building of high income residence buildings. They are the corporate structure itself, and the structures of racialization in the US. Thus, a conflict ensues between humans and corporations, in which the corporations use race and class against the people, in response to which forms of direct democracy become all the mor...

text Army of the Housed - by Brent Adams
Homeless Occupation Campout? I'll certainly be there, as I've been to the past half dozen take-overs of public space with homeless encampments. I've documented them and I've pondered them. My one thought - it is all too easy to rally an army of people who sleep outside; to offer them food and lead them down the road - but towards what?

Hundreds of medical cannabis patients and advocates will be visiting the state Capitol this afternoon to talk with lawmakers about medical cannabis legislation. One of the most important bills on the table is AB 258, the Medical Cannabis Organ Transplant Act. This bill will prevent discrimination against medical cannabis patients who need organ transplants. It is a high priority for ASA, because medical cannabis patients have already died after being dropped from the organ transplant waiting ...
