If both pass, the city will divest funds from companies like Granite Construction who seek to construct the proposed b...

document "Progressives" Defeat Trump Wall Investment, but Local Anti-Homeless Fencing Still On survivor_sleepers_sign-up_list.pdf_140_.jpg by Robert Norse
Looks like the threat of disinvestment from Granite Construction may have discouraged them from bidding for the anti-immigrant Trump wall on the border. However the Councilmember Terrazas's :"Public Safety" Committee will still be considering a "cost-effective" fence along the levee along with increased cops, surveillance cameras, and lighting to add to the "no loitering", forbidden to sit, and high-pitched anti-homeless "Mosquito" boxes along the levee at Tuesday night's 4-25 Council meetin...

Palo Alto's traditional Tax Day protests against military spending vibrated the city's downtown in a bigger way than usual this year. Rallies rocked in both of Palo Alto's large plazas and a march afterwards swung by the Apple store on University Ave. Some of the demonstrators sang songs in front of the store, then entered the establishment with their demand: hi tech firms, stop donating to the Republican party now!...

As a result of the proposed budget cuts to HUD, the Oakland Housing Authority may lose 611 or more Section 8 vouchers (Housing Choice Vouchers), placing hundreds of elderly, disabled, chronically ill, and low-income renters at risk of homelessness.

The City of Santa Cruz is proposing to build a new five-level parking garage above a new relocated city library on the parking lot bordered by Lincoln, Cedar and Cathcart Streets, where the Farmer's Market currently meets.

For the Yurok Tribe, who have fished the Klamath for thousands of years, the looming closure will also be an “unprecedented disaster,” according to Amy Cordalis, the Tribe’s General Counsel, a Yurok Tribe member and fisherwoman. Her family lives and fishes in Requa at the mouth of the Klamath River. ““This is the worst year in history for Klamath salmon,” said Cordalis. “There is no mystery as to why. The effects of an unprecedented drought were exacerbated by dams and diversions. This ye...
