image No Rezoning for Condos on Ocean St. Extension: No Public Pain for Private Gain 480_ocean_street_extension_santa_cruz_1.jpg by Ocean Street Extension Neighborhood Assoc.
We do not support amending the Santa Cruz General Plan to rezone 1930 Ocean Street Extension. A 40-unit condo project by the cemetery on a rural, dead-end street, far from bus lines and city center goes against the city General Plan to concentrate housing near essential services & transportation for walking/biking & reducing car trips. The problem is at crisis point. Especially dangerous is the Ocean St./Graham Hill Rd/Hwy 1&17 bottleneck. Please sign and share the petition: https://www.chang...

image The Necessity of Organization: The League of Revolutionary Struggle and the Watsonville Canning Strike 480_watsonville_canning_plant_strike_credit_holger_leue_feb_1986_1.jpg by Peter Shapiro, Viewpoint Magazine
The Pajaro Valley lies about 100 miles south of San Francisco. Its rich soil, abundant groundwater, and unusually long growing season make it one of the most productive agricultural regions in the United States. For years its main population center, the town of Watsonville, produced most of the frozen food on the nation’s dinner tables. Thanks to an insipid television commercial, millions of Americans in the 1950s knew it as “the Valley of the Jolly Green Giant.”...
