Say His Name! Justice For Pedie Perez BBQ-Richmond
Pedie Perez had been drinking when he was arrested by Richmond officer Wallace Jensen. After waiting on the floor for a while, he got up to walk away. He was gunned down. He was unarmed. There are several witnesses that attest that he didn’t attack the cop or try to seize his weapon, but in the follow up investigation NONE of the actual eye witnesses testimony was even mentioned and Jensen was allowed to continue on his merry way without so much as a reprimand. But folks are organizing and … Continued
All workers deserve a livable wage!
A living wage is the minimum income necessary for a worker to meet their basic needs, including shelter, clothing, transportation health care and nutrition. This doesn’t even include such spurious luxuries as recreation, vacation, retirement savings, paying legal fees and insurance, taking care of sick or elderly family members, tithing to your church, debt repayment, higher education for your children, and other such frivolous extravagances. Unfortunately in this country the minimum wage that employers must may is far below this even this paltry standard. Currently the national minimum wage is … Continued

Protect Public Land From Private Takeovers
Oakland’s beautiful and wild Knowland Park is under threat, and we need your help at an important City Council vote. Right now, the free public park is home to a range of wildlife, including threatened species, native grasslands, and woodlands. However, the Oakland Zoo is trying to take over the heart of the park–77 acres!–which would displace local wildlife…for an exhibit about species that are regionally extinct due to development. What?! This would also mean privatizing our public park, and since the zoo has been working behind closed doors with … Continued
