The suppressed Al Jazeera documentary on the Israel lobby in the U.S. Al Jazeera produced a documentary on the Israel Lobby in Britain that had an explosive impact.

Leading climate scientists have warned that we only have until 2030 to prevent global temperature increases from exceeding 1.5ºC. At that time, many effects of Climate Change will be irreversible, and the consequences will be dire. If the global average temperature increases reach 2°C, the results will be catastrophic; famine, droughts, floods, wildfires, the spread of infectious diseases and mass extinction– all on an unprecedented global scale.

CloseThe Loopholes in Oakland Rent Control @ Oakland City Hall Council Chambers,
Jun 4 @ 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm
We don’t have to wait to repeal Costa Hawkins to fight displacement and stabilize the homes of thousands of tenants in Oakland NOW. Oakland City Council has the power to remove rent-control exemptions on thousands of currently owner-occupied duplex and triplex units in Oakland and protect the futures of families in thousands more. It’s time we demand they take action to stop displacement and rent gouging. Closing the rent stabilization loophole for owner-occupied 2-3 unit buildings would immediately: • Protect an estimated 5,100 tenants already living owner-occupied duplexes or triplex … Continued

Launched in 1986, the Cacophony Society was a highly-influential, “randomly gathered network of free spirits united in the pursuit of experiences beyond the pale of mainstream society.” This underground collective of pranksters, culture jammers, and thrill-seekers birthed Burning Man, inspired Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club, and freaked out the squares with their proto-flash mobs of SantaCon.

Jun 6 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Dolores Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century-and she continues the fight to this day, at age 88. With intimate and unprecedented access, Peter Bratt’s film chronicles Huerta’s life from her childhood in Stockton, California to her early years with the … Continued

What if the value of what real estate agents mean by “location, location, location” were treated fully as community property? What would it mean as tax revenue to collect land values? What would happen to land speculation if the rent of land was collected by society to pay for social infrastructure?

What would happen to landlords’ pocketbooks if the land portion of the rent you’re paying went to pay for streets, schools, … Continued
