image Charilyn Damigo: Stop Financially Supporting and Housing your neo-Nazi Son Nathan 480_1_1.jpg by Veterans Against Hate
As Veterans Against Hate and friends and family of people who served fighting the Nazis in World War II, we are disgusted that Nathan Damigo continues to attend a public institution like CSU Stanislaus that we all pay for with our taxes. His mother also continues to milk his time served overseas in various Veterans groups. We call on everyone, especially Veterans, to put pressure on Nathan Damigo's mother, Charilyn Damigo, and demand that she kick him out of her home. By giving him a place to...

On Friday, August 11th, over 500 neo-Nazis savagely attacked and beat a group of young students and community members at the University of Virginia. The neo-Nazis had gathered for a night time march before the now infamous “Unite the Right” rally that resulted in the death of 32 year old Heather Heyer and injured close to 20 people....

image Big Oil spent $10.8 million last quarter to pass Jerry Brown's cap-and-trade bill 480_7-1.25.17_cap_and_trade_1.jpg by Dan Bacher
Adam Scow, California Director of Food & Water Watch, shed light on why the oil industry was so intent on getting AB 398 passed; it gives loopholes and tax breaks to corporate polluters that could actually result in more, not less, emissions. “The bill, heavily influenced by the oil and gas industry, makes California’s flawed cap-and-trade system worse by allowing excessive allowances to pollute and preventing local regulation of greenhouse gases,” said Scow. “The climate crisis demands ...

In each and every U.S. War, people of African ancestry have served with distinction. Before, during and after California Statehood, California Black Veterans have served in the face of adversity and historic systemic racism. The sacrifice on and off the battlefield by our service members and their families at home reflect the "price paid" for amazing new opportunities today. We are hopeful California Governor Jerry Brown will sign AB 376 into law as we prepare for Winter Crops in the "Farm...

Our dream catapults us from the mile-high Mountains of Nimba to the majestic Wologisi of Lofa, from the pristine surf beaches of Grand Cape Mount to the picturesque coast of Maryland, from the lush Putu landscape of Grand Gedeh to the colossal meanderings of the mighty Cavalla. And with our arms locked in unity, and our shoulders squared in Faith, together we will reach the shores of that Great Atlantic, wherein, under God, we can thrive as One Nation, indivisible with Liberty and Justice for...

The harm to human health and the environment resulting from AB 398 will impact people of color and low income communities the most. Michelle Chan, the vice president of programs at Friends of the Earth U.S., said 3,000 people will die prematurely because of the passage of the Big Oil-written bill. “This is institutional racism: when a bipartisan legislature pushes through public policies like AB 398 that look at the ‘big picture’ and ‘mean well,’ but really just perpetuate patterns of inequa...

image The Fix Is In: Brown administration approves environmental documents for Delta Tunnels cindy_messer.jpg by Dan Bacher
Adam Scow, California Director of Food & Water Watch, said the certification “is very troubling, though hardly surprising, for Governor Brown to approve of building massive new tunnels that won’t fix any of California’s water problems.” “This project would waste $25 to $67 billion, with interest, of taxpayer money and devastate the San Francisco Bay ecosystem. It would unfairly burden Southern Californians with higher water bills at a time when we must repair the aging and crumbling pipes ...

“This version of the tunnels will wipe out California’s salmon fishery and the families and communities that rely on salmon,” said John McManus, executive director of the Golden Gate Salmon Association. “The problem is the state basically allowed the water users to design the tunnels and they’re so huge that the federal fish and wildlife agencies are basically throwing up their hands. It’s like they let the fox design the hen house so of course he made it easy to rob.”...

“The federal government has only released a biological opinion on the construction of the tunnels—the public will have to wait for future biological opinions on the intakes and operations of the project,” explained Bill Jennings, Executive Director of the California Sportfishing Protection Alliance (CSPA). “In essence, they’re asking contractors to commit to paying for construction without knowing how the projects will be operated and how much water can be exported.” Photo: Paul Souza, Pa...

The timeline was produced through a collaboration between the Center for Convivial Research and Autonomy (CCRA) and the efforts of families and grassroots groups in Stockton and beyond. Because of the high number of killings in Stockton, we have had to modify the format to a range of ten year increments...

Below is my three-minute testimony before the Delta Stewardship Council before they voted to endorse the Delta Tunnels plan as part of their amendments to the Delta Plan at their June 22 meeting in Sacramento. They made the decision, with only one dissenting vote, in spite of a massive turnout and hours of testimony by tunnels opponents, including fishermen, conservationists, environmental justice advocates, family farmers, Delta residents and elected officials.
