Photo of tenant activist Lynda Carson condemning President Donald Trump on December 8, 2018, for threatening to shut down the federal government. The symbolism of condemning President Trump in front of the Oakland Housing Authority (OHA) at 1540 Webster Street downtown Oakland, is justified because a government shut down would threaten tens of thousands of renters in Oakland being assisted by the OHA including veterans, the elderly, disabled, chronically ill, and low-income families in public...

document Last Council Meeting of 2018 What's Missing? Freeze/Just Eviction Protection Extension! red_church_flyer_12-10-18.pdf_140_.jpg by Robert Norse
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...

text Driven to Consumption and Money out of Nothing by M. Binswanger, A. Sahr, and B. Milanovic
Growth originally created a material prosperity about which earlier generations could only dream. However, more economic growth does not lead to people being happier anymore. We are prisoners of a system that forces us to permanent growth. Banks create credits at the touch of a button, wages stagnate, schools decay and Goldman Sachs is in the government.
