Reject the “Exigency Clause” Measure — No Martial Law in Oakland
This letter was written by Cathy Leonard on behalf of CPA in response to the Police Union’s addition to a Measure LL [Police Commission] clean-up measure which would allow the city administrator to declare a version of martial law. If Mayor Schaaf really opposes the Portlandization of Oakland, she needs to demand this addition be removed from any police accountability measure now....

Civil Rights Class Action Filed in Reponse to Oakland Police Abuses of George Floyd Protesters
"It was so heartening to see so many young Black people expressing their outrage and wanting to be part of the change, and they were attacked by our police department, that tells them 'don't come out here, because we will make your life hard, we will hurt you if you organize, we will hurt you if you say that there is anything wrong with society.'" — Walter Riley...

Food Not Bombs Marks its 40th Anniversary by Responding to the Global Pandemic
The shock of COVID 19 and economic crisis is not the way I imagined Food Not Bombs would be marking our fourth decade.

Alternatives to Profit Maximization and The Fragility of Power
We must look for the "signs of the times" that point to the coming of the Kingdom of God or, as John Holloway puts it, the signs "of the presence of the material power of the cry." The world of struggle against the instrumental power that oppresses and exploits people often seems invisible...New struggles are constantly breaking out....

Super Tuesday and Standing up to Racists
Sanders said you can't beat Trump with yesterday's recipes and figures. That would be Biden's strategy to evoke the nostalgia of the Obama years. It would work for a lot of black people and some of the "urban" upper class. In fact, however, these forces, then personified in Hillary Clinton, have already lost at the first showdown with Trump....

Striking University of California-Santa Cruz grad students defy UAW, arrests and threats of termination
February 18, 2020 - Graduate student instructors (GSIs) and teaching assistants (TAs) at University of California-Santa Cruz are beginning the sixth day of their wildcat strike to demand a cost of living adjustment. Like many educators in California, grad students have confronted stagnant wages alongside skyrocketing rents that leave them struggling to survive in one of the most expensive cities in the United States. Last December, grad students initiated a grading strike to demand the increa...

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf Orders Mass Arrest of Housing Justice Village Protesters
An inspirational day of solidarity with unhoused Oaklanders turned into a traumatic night after mayor Libby Schaaf directed a small army of police and DPW workers to smash a housing rights protest held on the doorstep of City Hall. For daring to challenge the Oakland's never ending war against the homeless — the city's encampment demolitions and evictions, the towing of residential vehicles, and a lack of earnestness and urgency in addressing the housing crisis — twenty-two people were arres...
