Villaraigosa: The Myth of The Progressive Mayor (tags)

While Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa disappointed supporters and failed to deliver any progressive policies whatsoever, he was hardly a failure to those he really serves. Indeed, for developers, real estate tycoons, billionaires, and school privatization profiteers, Villaraigosa's eight year reign was a smashing success.

Occupy Riverside Festival of Rights (tags)

November 25, 2011
RIVERSIDE (California) - While Occupy Riverside celebrated "Buy Nothing Day," the remainder of the 99% who have yet to abandon the consumerist habits that are destroying the planet shopped at Black Friday's holiday sales. The last several years of this display of vacuous capitalism has been fêted by the city's ruling class with the "Festival of Lights," a ritualized lighting of an electrified Christmas Tree. This year, Occupy Riverside was on hand to intervene with its own "Festival of Rights."

The importance of this Tuesday's runoff election for school board (tags)

Tuesday's election will determine whether we have a school board member who listens to our community and parents or one beholden to the deep pocketed corporate charter school sector. If you live in LAUSD District 5, your vote matters.

Fielding a local reporter's questions about Camino Nuevo Charter Corporation's designs on (tags)

Now that Philip Anschutz's LAUSD Board Member from District 5 gave CRES #14 to CNCA Corporation, we see the true intransigence and arrogance of a CMO. For over a month we've asked CNCA to write into their charter the availability of at least a Mainstream English program in addition to their Transitional Bilingual Program. CNCA Corporation, and Yolie Flores - who promised the rest of the board she would insure it was implemented - have ignored the community. As with all corporate charters, CNCA is concerned with their bottom line alone.

Mayor Villaraigosa accepts bribes for jobs (tags)

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa appointed Ed Boks as the Director of Animal Services even though Boks had been fired from his two previous jobs for poor performance. After many, many mistakes and costly lawsuits the Mayor continued to stand by his appointment. Ultimately City Council made a motion of "no confidence" in Ed Boks' leadership in 2009 and demanded that he be fired. Finally Boks was forced to resign. Why did the Mayor appoint Ed Boks, a man with no college education and a bad track record? It seems a local billionaire offered Villaraigosa $10,000,000 if he would hire Boks, and the Mayor accepted.

Seeds of Hope, Seeds of War: Race, Class and the Battle for the South Central Farm (Final) (tags)

The world is literally watching. Media worldwide have covered the case of the South Central Farm, the largest urban garden in the United States, the efforts of the city's elites to drive the farmers from the land, and the farmer's remarkable resistance. On June 13th, the County moved to evict, concentrating a massive police presence in the area to uproot the resistor's encampment on the land. The South Central Farm arose from the ashes of the 1992 Los Angeles rebellion, and stands as a symbol of hope to millions. Despite the eviction, the struggle continues, with a court hearing this week challenging the City's sale of the land to a private developer. When the Los Angeles City Council sold the 14 acre plot called the South Central Farm to developer Ralph Horowitz, they sold land they didn’t own.

Public Forum on the Southwest Museum (article and transcript) (tags)

On July 1st, The Southwest Museum closed. The Autry National Center, which owns it, claims the future of the museum is secure, while Friends of the Southwest Museum is concerned about the lack of a concrete plan and whether or not relocating parts of the museum to Griffith Park is necessarily the best scenario. The lack of a tangible plan as well as a claimed scarcity of public input has fueled suspicion by the Coalition as to the owner’s true motive.
