I'm Marching on March 5th
On January 27, 2012 I got off work and drove like a maniac to Laney College where I ran my out-of-shape self from the parking lot all the way to the B building room 247. I tumbled into that classroom completely out of breath with beads of salty liquids dripping and shamelessly proud. I would be the newest member of this beautiful class. I could already blissfully taste the enlightenment.

On February 7, 2012, the Oakland City Council voted on a resolution aimed at preventing future protests from disrupting the Port of Oakland. Council members sparred with Occupy supporters in a struggle to keep them quiet when opponents and council members were speaking. I watched the video posted by Oakfosho, which unlike the videos posted on the government’s website, continuously spanned the audience.

Use Your Money- Why buy local?
Growing up in the Midwest, I spent a fair amount of time at the local mall. That's kind of where teen social life happened in my town. We would spend a lot of time anticipating what big, hip chain might set up shop next. Maybe the Gap will come... maybe we'll get a Target!
