Re: “The Truth is Out There: B4bel4b Exhibit Believe the Hype Exposes Ideological Battles Behind Neutral-Seeming Digital Age Info

This looks (to have been) fascinating! Too bad the story was published so late in the run of the exhibit, and so near to the time of the closing event!

Re: “How City Hall Crushed Occupy Oakland

Occupy Oakland started out as a semi legitimate protest made up of well meaning and educated people. It ended up as a garbage dump of humanity, with no self policing, filthy campsites, drug abuse, and violent participants. I followed it and visited it for months. I was so grateful when they were gone. This book is just far left propaganda.

Re: “Issues Celebrates 10 Years On Piedmont

Re: Issues
Why does your story state that this nice store is in Piedmont when it actually is in Oakland? BTW, not a single inch of Piedmont Avenue is located in the city of Piedmont. All of it is in Oakland. Does your office need a map?

Re: “How City Hall Crushed Occupy Oakland

Saying Occupy Oakland or the Occupy Movement failed is a bit much since Occupy meant revolution; i.e. a displacement of existing faculties of authority in finance and law enforcement. Every entity with power in those two organs of society focused their attention on ending Occupy. To suggest that it failed is to compare the struggle to a contest with a time limit, at the end of which a winner and a loser is declared. The legacy of Occupy is that hundreds of massive demonstrations have occurred without permits since 2011. Now, the occupation of public space continues as a tactic of resistance to neoliberal strategies of privatization and the cutting of government services. Student debt strikes are a direct offshoot of Occupy. Murders by police officers are recorded and tabulated since the movement began. And there are certainly grounds for an argument that the surge of neo-fascism and the humiliation it brings down on the Right is a reaction to Occupy and its offshoots. We should continue to evaluate the events of Sept. 2011 to Jan. 2012 from any and all perspectives, but its not yet time to put Occupy on the shelf. As Muhammad Ali Jinnah and his faction contributed to the achievements of Mohandas Gandhi, and as Stokley Carmichael and Malcolm X did the same for Martin Luther King, Jr., so may the radicals of Oakland do for crypto-revolutionaries who wish Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren would stop playin.
