text Sat. April 30 Signature Gathering for more Oakland renter protections by Posted by Lynda Carson
Please feel free to join the movement to help bring stronger renter protections to Oakland! The rents are higher than ever, public housing in the Bay Area is being privatized and sold off to so-called affordable housing developers, and Judge Jacobson has moved the "eviction case system" and Self-Help Center from Oakland to the far reaches of Hayward. Bringing stronger renter protections to Oakland renters is crucial at this point in time! (LC)

Due to the media's negligence to accurately cover the whole story... Alex Skelton and I have taken the liberty of getting the scoop. We were promised that we would be arrested and taken back to jail if we continue to protest this suppression of our rights. We've been protesting for two days now since our previous arrest. Nothing has been done. I'm not impressed. When the time comes, this story will be covered... Every second of it. Freedom of press at its finest.
