After a short holiday break, we will resume our weekly Thursday sharing at the 16th/Mission BART Plaza at 6 PM on Thursday, January 4, 2018.

However, because of people moving in and out of our regular cookhouse at 3030B 16th Street, we are moving the cookhouse to the apartment of one of volunteers for January 4th and maybe for a few more weeks until we can return to our normal spot.  Check the website for updates.

Unfortunately, the interim cookhouse, near the 24th/Mission BART Station, is smaller, limiting the number of volunteers.  We still need and want help.  Please call Micah at 415-738-9249 for further instruction.

The Serving Information Page (https://sffnb.org/serving-schedule/) is up to date.  Here is the current Thursday information:

Here is the article:  http://www.sfexaminer.com/residents-grow-impatient-fenced-off-soma-plaza/

San Francisco’s Real Estate Division claims that it must keep the park closed because the construction of the fence triggered an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirement that apparently no one considered ahead of time.

In order to make the enclosed park ADA compliant and re-open it, the City must build a $45,000 wheelchair ramp, although there is no time frame for that further renovation.

Presumably, the unenclosed park was ADA compliant because of its multiple egresses.

Unfortunately, we will not be sharing food at the 16th/Mission BART Plaza on Thursday until January 4, 2018 at 6 PM.

We must cancel our regular sharings for December 21st and December 28th.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

These articles are informative, worthwhile and timely.

The recently fenced McCoppin Hub Park is always locked and closed.

When Supervisor Jane Kim proposed fencing in the park as a solution to the non-problem of people using an unenclosed public space, the deal included that the park would be open during certain hours and locked at night.

In reality, all the gates are always locked like this:

 

Indeed, the park contains a sign with hours of operation:

 

For accuracy, the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department should replace this sign with one that reads,  “Closed Permanently Because of Civic Callousness and Political Cowardice.”

Here we are.  Millions spent to transform a dead end street into a useless locked off space.

Money for nothing.

HERE/THERE, on the Berkeley/Oakland Border across from Sweet Adeline Bakery 3350 Adeline St, Berkeley, CA 94703, USA

Tuesday October 24

4:30 PM – 4:30 AM

You’re invited to an

EVICTION RESISTANCE PARTY

The evening of Tuesday, Oct. 24

through Wednesday morning,

as long as necessary.

The camping community HERE/THERE has been practicing consensus government and responsible urban camping at its present location for more than nine months. Multiple members of City Council have called us “a model community”. So why has “someone” in the city government told BART to get rid of us?

We were only given three days notice: they will seize our property and force us onto the street some time on Tuesday. This eviction order is illegal. Help us resist it by coming out to shout at the pigs and enjoying a potluck Eviction Resistance Party. Tuesday evening through Wednesday morning, as long as necessary. Also, you can contact Lateefah Simon, the BART board director for our district, through https://www.lateefahforbart.com/contact and Rebecca Saltzman, chair of the BART Board of Directors whose district represents many people in Berkeley and Oakland: 

Rebecca Saltzman, Chair, BART Board, Director, District 7 Rebecca.Saltzman@bart.gov @rebeccaforBART 510 464-6095

COPS GO HOME

Bring a camera. This is also a good time to donate food, water, and any kind of survival equipment.

If they do manage to evict us, we’re going straight to City Hall, where we’re going to raise a hell of a ruckus. In that event, we will need help with transport and temporary storage of property. So maybe bring a pickup or a van, just in case?

Reposted from Indybay:  https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2017/10/06/18803486.php

Kaye “Nana” Griffin, an Indybay co-founder, passed on in early August. Nana was involved in the Bay Area activism scene for decades, including queer liberation, housing and many other local struggles. Nana also carried one of the first Indybay press passes. Her memorial service is on Saturday, October 21 at 2 PM (doors open at 1:30 PM) at the Center for Sex and Culture, 1349 Mission St. in San Francisco.

John Gilmore shared an Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) advertisement while recalling, “Kaye got around to many Bay Area subcultures. Here’s one of her appearances in the digital rights subculture. This full page ad appeared in 2003 in Rolling Stone magazine, featuring Kaye in the middle of the lineup. […] She was involved in so many things that I suspect that none of us knew the full extent of her activities and activism.”

Keith McHenry also provided a short reflection, “Kaye spent many hours volunteering with San Francisco Food Not Bombs and reported on the arrests and court cases posting on Indybay. She participated in nearly all the huge protests with her pet rat on her shoulder and I remember her insightful comments about a wide range of issues. Her vision of what is wrong with the political and economic system and ideas of where to take action to move our world forwards was spot on.”
