Media Justice/Media Resistance


Fourth of July in City Terrace

At Herbert Circle the view reaches from Eastside to San Pedro, from the Chicano Alps to shores of the North Pacific.

People hurry here from carne asada and weenie grills to huddle in the middle of the street.

To seize from the holiday a way of seeing themselves in their own light.

 

In anticipation for darkness to come rushing, for the show to begin,

I was early to stand among the crowd.

 

Following the first explosion from an artillery shell others take flight.

In an instant, night is set on fire.

Defund police, Fund humanity

“We pay your salaries and you have your assault rifles ready to shoot us unarmed protesters!?!? Stop paying them, people!” A poverty skolar shouted from the crowd where about 100 people had gathered in front of the Tenderloin police station in SF to speak up against police terror, murder and blantant brutality that is swiftly plauging many states in the nation once again.

Youth Poverty Skolaz Response to Billionaires Disaster Krapitalism

Bonanza is Cansa, by Kimo Umu
 
Since early January of this year, the covid-19 virus has continued to surge through the country. Many who are impacted first are the people without homes struggling to make it to the next day.
 
In the United States today 78 percent of households are living paycheck to paycheck. 20 percent of these individuals have a net worth of zero and below. I suspect this includes the homeless, impoverished and immigrants. 
 

Immune Tips for COVID-19 (and for cold and flu season in general)

I think it's safe to say that we've all been thinking more about public health and stopping the
spread of viruses over the last few weeks. The need for social distancing right now is high. This
help us to to protect each other (especially those who are elder, immune compromised, or have
other health conditions that make them more vulnerable) from rapid virus spread, and helps to
avoid overwhelming our health system.

SB 50- Article One in a Four-Part Series: The Lies, Damn Lies, Statistics, and Capitalism of the California Housing Crisis

As a low-income African-American living in the Bay Area, I have been through all the trials and tribulations the Brothas and Sistas have been through in America, and if I haven’t one of my friends or family members have suffered through it. This is the journey that we call America. A nation founded upon the tenets of patriarchy, white supremacy and hyper- capitalism. Yeah, folks, these are undisputed facts.
