On the morning of December 2nd at 5:00am we sabotaged various strategically located train lines in Northern California: in #Pittsburgh, #Oakland, #Niles, #Bahia, and #Lodi. We used a tactic shared by natives and accomplices of the Wet'Suwet'en #firstnations tribe in so called Canada. This method for stopping train traffic yields the lowest possibility for derailment, and thus the least likely to cause harm to human or animal life. We did this in solidarity…
Really great podcast series Revolutionary Care: An Oakland Story on the history of Sickle Cell Anemia in the U.S. and how the Black Panthers played an important role in advocacy for the disease in #Oakland at a time when it was basically ignored by the medical establishment and government due to structural #racism against black people in #medicine.
Megan Fan Munce: East Bay pastor arrested for allegedly molesting young churchgoer: Police have identified at least one victim and said they worry there could be more, given the pastor’s leadership position in the church.
"Police arrested a Richmond pastor Friday on suspicion of molesting a young member of his congregation, and officials worry there may be more victims.
Jail records show Victor Manuel Hernandez-Pineda, 53, was arrested in #Oakland Friday and booked on four counts of sexual assault on a minor and three counts of kidnapping.
Hernandez-Pineda was a pastor at the Iglesia Pentecostes Movimiento De Gloria in #Richmond and has been accused of molesting at least one churchgoer while she was under the age of 13, according to Richmond police."

Today in Labor History December 3, 1946: Female retail clerks at Hastings and Kahn’s launched the Oakland General Strike, the last General Strike to occur in the U.S. Other workers soon joined in. Over 100,000 workers participated in the 3-day Oakland General Strike, which was part of the 1945-1946 strike wave, the largest strike wave in US history. Over 5 million workers participated in the nationwide strike wave, including 225,000 UAW members, 174,000 electric workers struck, 750,000 steel workers, 250,000 railroad workers. There were several other General Strikes in 1946, too, including Lancaster, PA; Stamford, CT; Rochester, NY. In reaction to this strike wave, Congress passed the Taft-Hartley Act in 1947, which severely restricted the powers and activities of unions. It also banned General Strikes, stripping away the most powerful tool workers had.
[Thompson] “Curry goes 1-for-9 shooting in the second half. Warriors manage just 45 points in the second half. After making 12 of 22 from 3 in the first half, the [Warriors] went 5 of 21 in the second.” https://www.rawchili.com/3193557/

I go to three different darkrooms in the Bay Area:
1. Harvey milk, the SF city-operated BW darkroom with 30+ enlargers, ‘all you can eat’ chemicals for dev and prints, and a great large format inkjet printer
2. Photo Laundry, which has a setup for color darkroom printing; and has pro scanners for rent (Fuji Frontier, Imacon, Noritsu): https://www.photolaundrysf.com/
3. East Bay photo collective’s darkroom in Oakland: much smaller but very tight knit community

The effort to recall Alameda County DA Pamela Price is not about her performance. How could it be? She only assumed office this year, and these attacks against her began before she started work as the DA.
Wealthy reactionaries support the recall. Their words must be, "if at first you do not succeed in buying an election, try a recall".

Today in Labor History December 2, 2016: Thirty-six people died in a fire at the Ghost Ship, a converted warehouse in Oakland, California, serving as an artist collective. At the time, the warehouse was hosting a concert. However, the warehouse was zoned for industrial purposes. Residential and entertainment uses were illegal. Of the 80 to 100 people attending the concert, 36 died, making it the deadliest fire in the history of Oakland. The authorities arrested Ghost Ship's master tenant Derick Almena and his assistant Max Harris and charged them with felony involuntary manslaughter. After a series of mistrials, Harris was acquitted. On January 22, 2021, Almena pled guilty to 36 charges of involuntary manslaughter and was sentenced to 12 years in prison. With time served, he was expected to be able to serve his sentence in 18 months of home confinement while wearing an ankle monitor. A building inspector, a Child Protective Services agent, six members of the fire department, and three police officers had been to the building several times, but never mentioned any violations. Building owner, Chor Ng, plead the 5th, and never served any time. PG&E eventually paid some damages, as the fire originated with faulty electrical.
[Slater] Andrew Wiggins is questionable tomorrow in Los Angeles against the Clippers with that finger issue. Chris Paul is out. https://www.rawchili.com/3191901/
Draymond on Klay’s 4th Q 10 pts: “It was beautiful to watch & it all started with JK giving him a handoff in the corner. JK could’ve shot it, drove it. He went uphill, DHO & got Klay going. I told him he got Klay 10 pts off that 1 move. No one will celebrate you, but I will. That’s growth” (0:47) https://www.rawchili.com/3191214/
[Warriors on NBCS] “I didn’t know it’s your guys’ fifth year together … I’m proud of you two.” Klay had Steph and Dray dying after going off-script to praise Fitz and Kelenna 🤣 https://www.rawchili.com/3191051/
[Slater] “Steve Kerr called tonight Jonathan Kuminga’s best game of the season: “He didn’t foul. Not one foul. And he’s out there guarding Kawhi and Paul George. Used his athleticism. Had five rebounds in the first half.”” (0:48) https://www.rawchili.com/3190769/
Moses Moody: 13pts 6/10, Brandin Podziemski 13pts 5/10, Jonathan Kuminga: 17pts 6/8. Countless effort plays, great defense from all 3. Closed the game like vets 🔒👊🏿 https://www.rawchili.com/3190613/
"Experts also blame the rise in killings in Oakland and other American cities on the prevalence of gun ownership in the U.S., which has more guns than people. For all the pandemic disruption worldwide, homicide rates didn’t go up in countries with strict gun laws, said Thomas Abt, director of the Center for the Study and Practice of Violence Reduction at the University of Maryland."

remember friends, who don't we talk to?
another 2018 photo from my archives of #Oakland - this time at good ol' Berryland / Telegraph Beer Garden
Visual / product designer professionally. Creative outlets include illustration, photography, and more recently costumes & fashion.
A lover of sci-fi, indie music, fancy coffee, craft breweries / wineries, and technology (when it’s used for good). Apple hipster with complicated feels about Apple today.
The shapes and lights of this basketball court that was installed next to a construction site in downtown #oakland is absolutely stunning, especially in the rain.
6 lane 11th is completely closed to cars today and there is absolutely zero congestion
Our downtown roads are overbuilt and could be reduced to one lane each way with no issues
It would be absolutely wonderful if we could turn most streets into gorgeous linear parks instead of mostly empty speedways

Help me out, Oakland/East Bay bike tooters
I’m looking for the best route from South Berkeley to Oyster Bay Park in San Leandro
I took the northern route Google suggested (screenshot) and it wasn’t great. I didn’t mind the traffic, but very poor pavement and lots of debris
Is it worth going down to Jack London and following the waterfront?
Is there anyway to cut through Alameda?
Edit: I posted too soon, got what I want from https://coastaluminum.com/, $285 with tax.
Hey #SFBayArea , I'm looking to buy some #aluminum #plate, ideally within about 100 miles driving distance of #Oakland, and affordable. I want to buy a 40" x 60" x .190" 6061 piece. Recommend a vendor? (It's for a cool project, a bike slider that will go in the back of my van.)
