Re: “Oakland City Council: Tenant Relocation Assistance Delayed, But Moratorium on Rent Control Loophole Passes

It is so terrible that the Councilmembers postponed this needed remedy of relocation assistance for tenants who are being evicted. Is it any wonder there is such a huge homeless problem? People can't afford to get a new place when they are evicted. The Council members need to go spend some time at a homeless encampment getting to know the displaced Oakland residents they are harming through their actions on behalf of greedy realtors. Maybe they should spend a night out in the cold before their next vote.

The A's Stadium would obliterate the neighborhood.

Re: “Community and Labor Groups Say Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf Has Stacked the Planning Commission with Real Estate Industry Reps

Why even bother to have the pretense of a Planning Commission?

Re: “Sen. Nancy Skinner Asks Contra Costa Supervisors to Cancel $95 Million Jail Expansion

Thank you Senator Skinner! We need more leadership like this!
Contra Costa County residents need youth services, social services, health care and mental health services, not jails.

Re: “I Was Kicked Out of Federal Immigration Court — Because I'm a Journalist

Thanks. I went to one in Arizona and they heard the cases with 30-50 people
"defendants" at a time. It was insane. They had no translation, and would enter their pleas en masse as "guilty." It was astonishing. That said, this was under Obama. I would hate to see what it's going to be like under Trump.

Re: “#LibbyLeaks: Oakland Mayor Launches Investigation Against City and Police Whistleblowers

This effort is completely against every good government practice, a huge waste of resources, AND anti-worker.
Thanks for writing this, and I hope that there is an official investigation into their retaliatory efforts.
