As we arrived we met Mel Nunez, a dedicated advocate for the poor and representative from our local faith communities. [Photo: The view of the Ross Camp from the River Street side.]...

“The 50th anniversary of the Santa Barbara oil spill is a grim reminder of how far we have to go in stopping not only offshore drilling, but onshore oil and gas expansion as well,” said Tomás Morales Rebecchi, senior Central Coast organizer with Food & Water Watch. “If Gov. Gavin Newsom wants to lead opposition to the Trump administration’s plans to expand dangerous offshore drilling, he should start by ending drilling in California state waters and onshore throughout the state."...

text Anti-homeless terrorists break our van window on MLK day by John Cohen-Colby
The night of MLK day anti-homeless terrorists shattered the rear window of the van my sister Patricia Colby, I and our two emotional assistance cats live in. This was the latest hate crime in a gang stalking campaign by Take Back Santa Cruz (TBSC) which began with death threats against us in 2010. TBSC hate criminals connected with a gang of Section 8 criminals gang stalking us since we had HUD Fair Housing complaints against the consecutive managements of the Mission Gardens Apartments (MGA)...

Officer Chris Galli of the Santa Cruz Police Department used a racist term today on social media to describe his experience with a local homeless man.

document Police-Led Martin Luther King Day March, Lots of Smiles, Little Substance
by Robert Norse
I joined the MLK parade, annoyed at the annual pomp and ceremony, sterilizing, sanitizing, and snoozifying his real message-to act locally against war, racism, and poverty. The flyers I distributed lay out some of the specifics that I often echo on this website. At least one speaker at the civic Auditorium noted it was, for the second year, police-led--the final bitter icing on the fluffy cake of expropriating, transforming, and degrading King's original message and work....
