Re: “Some Oakland Landlords Are Using a Legal Loophole to Exempt Housing from Rent Control

Great Article! This is reporting. This is journalism. And this is another example
of how Oakland City Council and its rent control laws fail to serve the city - and do more to serve wealthy/corporate real-estate interests. When tenants like this lose, the whole city loses.

Re: “Supporter of Controversial Israeli Settlements Would Benefit from Exclusive Oakland Public Land Deal

This article is another fantastic piece of journalism by Darwin Bondgraham. After winning a Polk award earlier this year, Bondgraham continues to inform Oakland/East Bay residents with writing that reflects humanity and mindfulness (not simple robot reporting).

Do East Bay residents want to know whether a local city government is making deals with a developer who is actively contributing large sums of money to efforts that undermine the security of Israel and Palestine and break international law? Why yes, they do!

Is this information relevant to all of us who want to know how and where our local community has an impact globally? You bet.

Should our local governments be making investments and property deals with individuals or organizations involved in efforts such as this? No, they should not. And thank you Darwin Bondgraham for informing us of this.

The settlement movement: is illegal, makes Israel less safe, makes Palestine less safe, and makes us all, in this hyper-connected world, less safe.

Investments are not simply business decisions they are connected to ethics and politics. Anyone getting upset at a journalist making ethical connections (and not reporting like a robot) echos the bully club of the Donald administration and their attack on reporters and news they dont want exposed.

Thanks for connecting the dots Darwin.

Re: “Neighbors Along One Fruitvale Street Are Organizing to Stop a Controversial Eviction

Simon-Weisberg is right: the city needs to do more! This article is great, and reads like a crime story ... but what is the city doing to stop this criminal preying on innocent renters. This landlord is committing fraud.
