Re: “City Forcing West Oakland’s Alliance Metals to Close on August 20, But Supporters Argue Recyclers Have No Safety Net

I'm surprised and appalled at the shoddy journalism here. Lots of quotes from the for-profit company that is exploiting the homeless. Lots of quotes from the documentarian (who actually seems to be using this issue to promote his film). No mention of the three other recycling centers within a 10-block radius? You quote Alliance on how much they paid out last year but not on how much they made (hint: at least twice that in PROFIT). You have an unattributed quote from the ACLU—could it have been made by Executive Director Abdi Soltani? Not a single quote from someone who lives in the area and has lived there for many years? Or the local pastor who is helping to ensure that Alliance's victims get the services they need?

This isn't about gentrifiers not liking the shopping cart parade. It's neighbors being appalled at the victimization of our unhoused neighbors by Alliance. If the company is so concerned for them, why hasn't it put up a port-a-potty even?

Lazy, lazy reporting.

Re: “Rent Hike May Force Oakland's Genova Delicatessen to Close

Who are the property owners? I, for one, would like to send them a very strongly worded letter.
