text Statement on Berkeley City Council Resolution to Pepper Spray Protesters by NLG-SF
The one thing Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin, the Berkeley Police Department and City Council got right at the Monday afternoon Council meeting was that violence has indeed come to the streets of Berkeley. But rather than using these critical times as an opportunity to have a larger conversation with Berkeley’s people of color, LGBTQIA, Jews, Muslims and other communities who are being targeted by white nationalists/ neo-Nazis/ white supremacists - the City has instead utilized this as an oppo...

On September 10th, at the Berkeley City Council meeting, a 1997 ban that prevents police from using pepper spray at protests, was modified to give police limited power to do so. This is little more than the continuation of an agenda that criminalizes dissent, upholds the tenets of white supremacy and empowers the frontline enforcers of white supremacy (law enforcement) to repress the masses....

At a report on the crisis at the Bay Area Air Quaility Management District, panelists including Dr. Larry Rose former Cal-OSHA Medical Director reported that the district refuses to properly monitor the refineries of pollution discharges and also retaliates against engineers who question Chevron and the other polluters measurement of pollution.

A bill is speeding through the California legislature that would allow telecom companies to saturate our residential neighborhoods with toxic radiation from 50,000 new-generation cell towers. There would be virtually zero government control and oversight. This article explains why this is happening, what the alternative is, and what we can do to stop it. The final hurdle, a vote by the full CA Assembly, will happen early this week....

video Exposing OPD and ICE Lies About the Raid of West Oakland Latina Home (video/mp4 2.9mb) by Dave Id
ICE's Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) unit raided the home of a West Oakland Latina family on August 16. Oakland police claim their only role was blocking street traffic while the raid was conducted, but it's hard to take anything Oakland police say at face value when both ICE and the Oakland police department have lied about the incident. Defensive about the raid, Oakland police first smeared the family with a salacious and blatantly untrue allegation while the raid was still in pro...

On Wednesday, August 16, at about 7am, a convoy of unmarked federal vehicles rolled up in West Oakland and over two dozen armed Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) agents demanded entry and stormed a Latina home, supposedly in service of a warrant for the "human trafficking of juveniles." Oakland police participated by blocking the street to through traffic, despite legislation passed by the Oakland city council in July rescinding the department's authorization to work with ICE on immigra...

SAN FRANCISCO, September 6, 2017 — An oil spill reported this week in San Pablo Bay near a Phillips 66 refinery is raising new questions about the company’s plans to dramatically increase the number of ships carrying oil though the bay to the facility.

This past weekend in San Francisco and Berkeley saw tens of thousands of people hit the streets against a series of far-Right rallies attended by Alt-Right trolls, Proud Boys, and neo-Nazis. The mobilizations showed that there is broad popular opposition to the Alt-Right as antifascist groups, groups of workers, faith based organizations, and a multitude of sectors mobilized and organized to confront the far-Right. The bay area mobilizations also showed that the autonomous power and energy th...

Poor social services in Berkeley and other civic aberrant negligence have contributed to the perceived negation and associated slander towards People's Park. But beyond a decade's long insufficient response to human suffering and a lack of community concentration on the People's Park garden, and other aspects of the park that aren't directly linked to blight at all times, and often are, it is time to SAVE PEOPLE'S PARK!...
