Members of California Indian Tribes spoke in support of the San Joaquin water flow standard at the hearing. “The destruction of the rivers is genocide on the fish and the genocide on fish is the genocide of the indigenous people of these rivers,” Mahlija Florendo, Yurok/Karuk/Hupa, and organizer for Save California’s Salmon, told the board before the vote. “So I am here today to tell you that these flows are critical to the land, the rivers, the fish and the people. No dams, no diversions,...

image Tenant activist condemns President Trump for threatening to shut down federal government 480_20181208_163714_1_1_1.jpg by Lynda Carson
Photo of tenant activist Lynda Carson condemning President Donald Trump on December 8, 2018, for threatening to shut down the federal government.

In the last regular scheduled Council meeting of the year outgoing Mayor Terrazas won't put on the agenda an item to extend the Rent Freeze/Just Eviction Protection that the Council passed overwhelmingly in February. That measure expires on today December 11th once the election results are accepted by the Council. It leaves tenants vulnerable to exorbitant rental increases. I have written several letters demanding the "progressive" Council members (who constitute a majority in the middle o...
