Neglect of Public Housing (tags)
Crisis and chance are represented by the same Chinese letter. Big US and German cities have sold off public housing to gain revenue. The Federal Low Income Housing Tax Credit program has financed 2-3 million units. The state is obligated to protect from the brutal market.

Eric Garcetti Allows Destruction of 40 Protected Trees (tags)
Over the strong objection of constituents, Eric Garcetti (district 13) approved a rezoning of land, part of a wildlife corridor in Echo Park-Elysian Park, from three to 15 houses and gave developers special permission to cut down 40 protected trees. Garcetti's environmental legacy also includes siding with developer Ralph Horowitz and Councilwoman Jan Perry regarding the South Central Farm. Twenty years ago, another pro-development Councilmember, Michael Woo, ran for Mayor--as Garcetti is now doing--but was opposed by a formidable group called Citizens for Anyone but Woo. Hopefully 2012/2013 will see Anyone but Garcetti.

THE RACIST GENTRIFICATION OF OUR CITIES (tags)
“Why don’t we just get nooses for everyone of those lowlifes and hang them from a tree? They’re used to that kind of treatment anyway!” read the message on an email sent to upscale co-op residents of a redevelopment project smack right in the middle of a Harlem neighborhood last October. The anonymous post which originated from one of the units within the co-op added: “I hope you all agree that the best thing that has happened to Harlem is gentrification. Let’s get rid of these ‘people’ and improve the neighborhood once and for all.”
Video: Free Gaza Protest (tags)
LOS ANGELES, January 10, 2009 – An estimated 2,000 plus people marched through Westwood to protest the continuing Israeli invasion of Gaza. Marchers were lead by organizers working with police on a pre arranged march route. Any deviation from the set march route was not allowed. Police and organizers kept a tight lock on the marchers and lead them around in a circle through Westwood village. Much like the siege of Gaza itself police and the organizers deployed outrageously disproportional show of forces.
