“On Friday, April 11th, Albany Police raided a camp on the Albany Bulb, arresting two Bulb residents at one of their longtime homes. One of those arrested is currently dealing with serious medical issues and missed an extremely important surgery while locked down. Not content to merely criminalize the homeless, the city used their arrests as a pretext to exclude the two targeted Bulb residents (who happen to be two of the most tenured) from the monetary settlement that was offered to some of those living on the Albany Bulb … Continued

BART OFFICERS & SANTA RITA SHERIFFS TAG-TEAM BATTERY OF NUBIA BOWE, A 19-YEAR OLD AFRICAN-AMERICAN WOMAN One might think that based on the sordid history and negative press surrounding Oakland’s law enforcement activity, officers would think twice before using excessive force on unarmed citizens. Unfortunately, this is not the case for many black and brown youth who are overly scrutinized and policed simply for existing in the skin in which they were born, nor was it the case for Nubia Bowe on Friday, March 21, 2014.

At the same time, others have redoubled their efforts to suppress discussion of Israel’s escalating war against Palestinians, promoting legislation to defund institutions that participate in boycotts, and pressuring university administrations to punish … Continued
