Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
I can't believe this is reality.
I have been going through a similar process that resulted in combating the building department and filing a claim against my landlord. In my situation, I believe that Oakland Building Department was directly responsible for my displacement and, as can be seen in this case, they have no regard for the people who's lives they ruin at this building. Instead of applying the correct pressure on the landlord, they are uprooting the tenants. My self and another friend going through similar circumstances are planning on filing a claim against the city for the departments part in exacerbating our situations. If any party in this building is interested we would welcome you joining our claim.
This is not a chicken or the egg argument, the OPD are the aggressors. Police have been historically violent toward protesters (exemplified in the recent history of the Occupy movement) and the people should not be blamed for defending themselves. It is not up for debate.
