Eight isn't Enough

We held the Eighth Fair Wage Cafe on Saturday and it was awesome.

Music, poetry and comedy by some of the most talented folk in Humboldt County. Food from our community volunteers with Coffee by the Gold Rush, even I baked some goodies. These Cafe's keep getting bigger and and better thanks to the community. The Fair Wage Folks are the hosts but the numbers of community members and organisations that contribute their time and support is growing with each event.

Eight is not enough, A worker can't live on $8 an hour and eight isn't enough Cafes. We will be having more Fair Wage Cafes in the months ahead and on Election Day we will be Raising the Wage.

Here are some photos for those that missed this one. See you in May.

Busy Week

Spent the first part of the week celebrating measure D in San Jose. Then I joined my comrades for 5 pm for the 5 demands an ongoing event on Thursdays. The five demands center on ending the torture of long term solitary confinement in the California prison system. Friday I joined Don And Dimitri at the intersection of Wabash and Broadway for our peace vigil. Ended the week at the Unitarian Fellowship in Bayside brunching and politicking. Cheers

Couldn't find the car but we found the press conference.

)

It was held on the campus at SJSU near the Statues.

It was a great event to celebrate the Success of a Group of Students in changing the world for good.

Capitol City Gathering.

The Regular visitors to these pages are aware that the Crisis Stands in Solidarity with the California Prison Hunger strikers. Each Thursday at 5:00 PM for the 5 Demands I and my comrades try to get the word out to a populace poorly served by local media about the plight of men and women in solitary confinement. We started on the Plaza in Arcata and have recently been gathering at the 3rd street side of Clark Plaza in Eureka. In a little change of pace this week we took our show on the road to the California capital to show the members of the Public Safety committee that We will not forget these brave Human Beings that have risked their lives for Human rights. The committee was holding hearings on the damage that long term solitary confinement does to society. Here is the day in pictures.
