The Eagle Rock Peace Vigil Marks 15 Years (tags)

Reflecting on 15 years of weekly vigils both in Eagle Rock and elsewhere in SoCal.

All Nighter in Eagle Rock, Los Angeles California (tags)

August 17 was a hot Saturday. North East Radical Neighbors for Peace through Justice (NELA Rad) set up their weekly protest, at Eagle Rock and Colorado Boulevards, at 2pm. They set out their signs, the standards: Pledge of Allegiance to the Earth, Afghanistan: Graveyard of Empires, and Peace is not simply the Absence of Violence... to name a few. Smartly, they set up a shade awning, and broke out snacks, water bottles, a table and chairs. While this group usually addresses what they refer to as “Peace through Justice, and all the related issues,” this weekend they were focused on “Global Warming, and all the related issues.”

Climate Impact Day in Eagle Rock (tags)

“To preserve our planet, scientists tell us we must reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere from its current level of 392 parts per million to below 350 ppm. But 350 is more than a number—it's a symbol of where we need to head as a planet.” --350.org

L.A. council to debate whether to outlaw medical pot stores (tags)

Yes, these folks are evil government tyrants, but I don't think any of them are so bad that they couldn't be fixed with a gun. Of course the tyrants in the People's Republic of California have more or less flushed the 2nd Amendment down the toilet and banned guns in California.

A $10 billion soluton to a 10 cent drug war problem (tags)

Of course the simple solution to this problem is to legalize marijuana. Don't expect Sheriff Baca to do that. He wants to keep the drug war which is a jobs program for highly paid cops to arrest marijuana smokers. Hey cops always come up with these $10 billion solutions to 10 cent problems. But don't call the cops idiots. They are the ones that will get to keep the $10 billion they steal from us to pay for the mess they want to create.

Both Sides of the Border: Latin American and Chicano Art (tags)

With the recent upsurge in popularity for Latino art, Carlotta's Passion Fine Arts intends to present a proper historical and aesthetic context for what is quickly becoming an internationally renown school of art. As an expression of a newly independent hemisphere, Latin American art has long delighted and inspired a world audience. Vibrant, compelling and rooted in the unique experience of the Americas, the genre provides a bridge for a new contemporary US art movement. Chicano Art is the visual language of the Mexican-American community in the US, and domestically it has already made an impact with its bold aesthetics - now it is poised to become popular with the worldwide community. To help broaden that recognition, Carlotta's Passion Fine Arts presents, Both Sides of the Border: Latin American and Chicano Art.
