by Save the Ridge Redwoods
Today (April 6th), UC Berkeley cut down the support foliage, including oaks, at the redwood grove behind Soda Hall.

Furthermore, by cutting down a protected species, the design institute goe...

by The Counterforce (Group #73)
Sunday morning, a group of fed-up service workers descended on the house of Kevin Rose, professional asshole. They unfurled two banners, one read "Kevin Rose Parasite," given that he makes an obscene amount of money to fund people to create nothing, leeching off our actual work, and another banner read "Ima Snip Snip yr Ballz," a reference to Kevin's televised "joke" about cutting off women's breasts with scissors. About ten minutes into the demonstration, Kevin arrived with a couple of his b...
