Young adults speak out for choice in SF streets after Walk For Life counterprotest - PT. 1 (audio/mpeg 31.3MB)
A rally was held by a group of counter protesters who added a renewed radical presence to the counter protest. Young school age adults led the action, with many people speaking at the mike on what got them to the action and what they want to do to further the cause beyond today. (16 minutes) The action was spirited, with a very broad range of experiences and perspectives presented in impromptu talks that went far beyond conventional, polite speech. From what I learned, a group called Stop Patriarchy, which organized the counter protest for the second year in a row, spent quality time organizing in Bay Area Schools, finding many young women and also men outraged at the climate around abortions. Talks ranged into perspectives on sex, gender, and personal expression. Organizers from the Revolutionary Communist Party and World Can’t Wait were also present. The young adult contingent was very important. From watching the Walk For Life march, the biggest increased demographic of anti-choice activists seems to be school age young adults, especially twenty-somethings. A group called Students For Life has been successfully organizing on campuses and churches to swell its rank with the offensive message that abortion is murder and needs to be completely eliminated and criminalized throughout the U.S. The activists then headed for a strategy session at the Unitarian Church to develop continue organizing around these issues.

2015 SF Tenant Rights Fair – Mike Casey ,Labor leader, UNITE HERE Local 2 (audio/mpeg 9.3MB)
A tenant’s rights conference was held at the Tenderloin Community School all day last Saturday, April 25. The event was sponsored by the San Francisco Anti-Displacement Coalition, which is a joint collaboration of most or all of the housing rights organizations in the city. The Coalition is together to continue a multi-pronged campaign to turn around the escalating epidemic of big money-oriented evictions aimed at driving the price of housing out of reach of mostly everyone except wealthy people (5 min). Local labor is firmly involved in the SF housing movement against evictions. While rents continue to escalate out of control due to a manufactured artificial scarcity of homes and landlord price gauging, SF rents are increasingly out of reach for city employees. Over at least the last decade, city hall has presided over a hostile labor climate in which wages have been purposely stagnated, sending actual and real quality of wages way downward. Union workers and housing activists are in alliance in this fight, with national real estate money flooding in to oppose every little thing that is needed to obtain justice. Mike Casey gives a rousing speech on the need to stand up and fight speculator-driven evictions and turn the political climate around.
