Stokely Carmichael (Kwame Ture) on MLK, the US and nonviolent resistance
More Press for the Raging Grannies. We were at Facebook protesting in early May and and the Chronicle snapped this photo. No XL Pipeline, Zuckerberg…don’t support it!
Great job to the Raging Grannies!
19 January 2013 - This is what the roof of one of our Occupier’s car looks like. Stickers stickers EVERYwhere.

Ann Sims protests the construction of a napalm plant in Redwood City, Ca
Photo by Erik Weber for Ramparts (1966)
Besides being a cool, historic photo, I love how this photo highlights how people in Redwood City have been raising hell for decades. :)
And it highlights how corporations/big business have long seen RWC as an arena for their assault on the environment, whether it be Cargill trying to fill in the bay, Sundt/Layton and HOK building a jail on a toxic site, or the Pauls Corporation driving out sustainable/affordable communities to build high-rise condos in the path of sea level rise.
People in RWC government and their friends say that protests and activism of the type that Occupiers practice is “not how we do things in Redwood City.” To those people, I point to Ann Sims and say: “Oh, really. You sure about that?”
Cool photo of Ann Sims protesting the construction of a napalm plant in Redwood City. Things have hardly changed. Now we’re fighting toxic jails and irresponsible waterfront development in Redwood City, among other things.
