DSA Canvass for Housing Justice: South Berkeley

Stand with Haiti: Rally for Solidarity @ Montgomery BART

The powerful protests going on in Haiti expose the violence of intractable poverty, misery, hunger, racism, repression and exclusion. After 14 years of UN/US imposed policies and military occupation supported by a corrupt, US-backed dictator, the Haitian people have had enough. For years, many thousands of Haitians have protested peacefully month after month against foreign occupation, stolen elections, government corruption, poverty, land grabs, and rising prices. The international media has ignored their struggle and helped stifle their voices. Foreign investors and Haitian elite have continued to amass enormous wealth while … Continued

Jul 17 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
This week, the East Bay Express published the results of a review of civil rights settlements for police misconduct by the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department. Not surprisingly, they found that Alameda County leads the region in civil rights payouts. The article describes the brutal and often fatal lawless behavior that has cost us millions of dollars in just the last 3 years. We know that the Alameda County Sheriff and deputies invested heavily in the re-election of incumbent District Attorney Nancy O’Malley to protect and preserve the status quo. We … Continued

The beauty is soon to be broken as when the time comes to fly away, many of the young stay behind and face a long painful death. Their bellies filled with ocean plastic make them unable to fly and feed… 64880

Join us to urge the Board of Supervisors to deny permits to E&B Natural Resources to expand and extend its drilling operation in Alameda County’s Livermore Valley. E&B Natural Resources, a Bakersfield-based oil company, is just one step away from getting the go-ahead from the county for 10 more years of dangerous drilling in the Livermore Valley — this despite the company’s reckless track record of spills and accidents (48 since 2007!) that threaten public safety and the environment. The permits would allow E&B to dispose of oil-drilling waste by … Continued
