Tony Robles/PNN Monday, February 15, 2010 Could never understand it. It seemed a society of in-secrets. I’ve never been good when it comes to in-secrets. I’m always the last one to know things much of the time. I would listen to people talk politics at the workplace. They were always so sure of their arguments and analysis. In penny loafers they kicked around words and opinions in a verbal game of hacky sack (showing socks of argyle).

It’s been a little over two years since I graduated with my B.A. degree in Humanities Public Policy while surviving on welfare with my three young daughters, thinking that not only would I be able to help change the world for the better, but to also have the sole ability to pull my family out of poverty and get a stable living wage job.

Working their Asses Off: Street Cleaners protest wrongful termination from The Department of Public Works

Tuesday, February 22, 2005

"We have kids to support, we have bills to pay" The brown eyes of Larry Montoya glistened in the morning glare. He spoke to me over the sounds of horns honking in solidarity with the over 40 street cleaners who were protesting their illegal and wrongful termination from The Department of Public Works. He concluded, "We are protesting to get our jobs back, they fired us cause of nepotism"

The MUNI Lie Rail Project: The Bayview Hunters Point community seeks access to jobs and contracts for the last big MUNI Jobs

Sunday, October 31, 2004

Yeah, a mid-night train is coming
Right down "Homeless Row"
The Metro, co-signed by "Mr. Willie"
The Bar-be-cue’s of Bayview, he threw yearly
Oh but it’s going to cost the home owners dearly
Trickin the people to cut their own, pocket books
Yeah, they used to Lynch a Nigga, at Southern Bar-be-cues
Young bloods mis-guided, hating one another
Railroaded to Jail, by the coming of the Lite rail.
No jobs, no homes, get out of the way, toot, tooted!
Excerpt from "The coming of the Rail" by Po Poet Laureate A. Faye Hicks
