On the Beach - SF Apocalypse Film
The film is set five years in the future. In early 1964, in the months following World War III, the conflict has devastated the Northern Hemisphere, polluting the atmosphere with nuclear fallout, killing all life there. Air currents are slowly carrying the fallout south; the only areas still habitable are in the far reaches of the Southern Hemisphere.

From Australia, survivors detect an incomprehensible Morse code signal coming from the West Coast of the United States. The American nuclear submarine, USS Sawfish, now under Royal Australian Navy command, is ordered to sail north to the United States to attempt to make contact with the sender of the Morse signal. The submarine is commanded by Capt. Dwight Towers (Gregory Peck), who must leave his new friend, the alcoholic Moira Davidson (Ava Gardner).

The Australian government arranges for its citizens to receive suicide pills or prepared injections so they may end things quickly before there is prolonged suffering from radiation sickness. An Australian naval officer, Peter Holmes (Anthony Perkins) and his wife, Mary, who is in denial about the impending disaster, have a baby daughter. Assigned to travel with the American sub for several weeks, Peter tries to explain to Mary how to euthanize their baby and then kill herself should he not be home yet when the end comes; Mary reacts very emotionally to this prospect.

One scientist's theory is that the radiation level near the Arctic Ocean could be lower than that found at the mid-Northern Hemisphere, possibly indicating that the radiation could disperse before reaching the Southern Hemisphere. This theory is to be explored as part of the submarine's main mission. After sailing to Point Barrow, Alaska, they find that radiation levels are, in fact, intensifying.

Later, when Sawfish arrives in the San Francisco Bay area, the crew find a city devoid of all signs of life. Ralph Swain, a crewman who had family in San Francisco, deserts the submarine and swims ashore. Scientist Julian Osborn (Fred Astaire) informs Capt. Towers that Swain's contact with the radioactive environment will quickly make it impossible for him to return without killing everyone on board. The next morning, through the periscope, Capt. Towers observes Swain fishing in the bay and broadcasts an intercom greeting. Swain has found his parents dead and confirms that no one has survived. He apologizes for leaving, but explains that he preferred to die in his hometown rather on the other side of the world. Towers bids Swain farewell and departs for San Diego.

The Joy of LIfe
The Joy of Life is a 2005 experimental landscape documentary by filmmaker Jenni Olson about the history of suicide and the Golden Gate Bridge, and the adventures of a butch lesbian in San Francisco, California. Since its January 2005 premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, this innovative feature film played a pivotal role in renewing debate about the need for a suicide barrier on The Golden Gate Bridge as well as garnering praise and earning awards for its unique filmmaking style.

The film combines 16mm landscape cinematography with a lyrical voiceover (performed by LA-based artist/actor Harriet “Harry” Dodge) to share two San Francisco stories: the history of the Golden Gate Bridge as a suicide landmark, and the story of a butch dyke in San Francisco searching for love and self-discovery.

The two stories are punctuated by Lawrence Ferlinghetti's reading of his ode to San Francisco, "The Changing Light" and bookended by opening and closing credits music from legendary 1950s icon (and probable Golden Gate suicide) Weldon Kees. The film is dedicated to the memory of Mark Finch who committed suicide by jumping from the Bridge in January 1995.

The Man Who Cheated Himself - SF Noir
Wealthy socialite Lois Frazer, divorcing her fortune-hunter husband, Howard, finds a gun he's bought. She kills him with it in front of the new man in her life, Lt. Ed Cullen, a homicide detective with the San Francisco police. The twice-married Lois manages to manipulate Cullen into disposing of the murder weapon and moving the body. Cullen ends up investigating the case, assisted by kid brother Andy, who is new to the homicide division and delays his honeymoon to keep working on his first big case.

The gun is found and used in another killing by a young punk, Nito Capa, so all Cullen can think to do is try to pin both crimes on him. Andy Cullen keeps connecting Ed to the first murder, however, catching him in a number of lies. Ed ties and gags Andy and tells Lois they need to flee. Roadblocks seal off the city, but Andy has a hunch where Ed took the woman to hide, at Fort Point under the Golden Gate Bridge, and soon they are under arrest. Outside the courtroom, Ed overhears the amoral Lois offering to do anything for her lawyer if he can keep her from being convicted.

Stranded - 1936 SF Labor film
In Stranded, Francis plays Lynn Palmer, an employee in the San Francisco branch of the Travelers' Aid Society, a charitable organization which was first formed in St. Louis, Missouri in the 19th century to aid travelers and immigrants who became stranded during their journeys. Lynn is dedicated to her work and fulfilled by it but experiences some friction in her life when she agrees to let Velma (Patricia Ellis), the spoiled daughter of a rich socialite, work with her and share her apartment. The relationship between the two women becomes increasingly strained when both women vie for the attention of Mack Hale (George Brent), the superintendent of the Golden Gate Bridge project, who comes to Travelers' Aid in search of a missing steel worker. Upon first meeting the sparks fly between Lynn and Mack and they appear to be an ideal match...except for their opposing ideologies. As their mutual attraction escalates into a passionate battle of the sexes, Mack also becomes embroiled in a war against corrupt racketeers who try to force him to pay protection from the mob on his bridge construction.

Despite its episodic structure and multiple subplots, Stranded offers an unmistakably feminist point of view (for a Hollywood movie) in its depiction of Lynn and her unyielding commitment to her work and career. Despite her great love for Mack, she can't understand why she should give up her volunteer work to become a full time wife. Mack, on the other hand, has little sympathy for the helpless and homeless recipients of the Travelers' Aid program and only respects those who are self-motivated and work hard for a living. He can't comprehend her refusal to quit the organization, saying, "There's work to be done. Work so hard that I need all of you when I come home. What kind of life would we have if one night I'm working and the next night you're working and the next night we're both all in? You won't have to be mixed up in this useless madhouse job of yours."

Amy Lippert: Consuming Identities - Visual Culture in 19th-Century San Francisco
This book specifically examines two phenomena as they emerged and developed in San Francisco: images of humans and the growth of a commodified image industry around those images of humans. The study spans the second half of the nineteenth century, beginning with the January 1848 discovery of gold on the American River and the almost simultaneous U.S. acquisition of California (ceded along with almost one half of all Mexican territory in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, less than two weeks later). Consuming Identities concludes with the dawn of the twentieth century and the catastrophic San Francisco earthquake and fire of 1906—an endpoint that coincides with a demographic and cultural shift southward to Los Angeles in the ensuing decades, when motion pictures would begin to gain preeminence. Throughout, the work demonstrates the role of San Francisco as a city at the forefront of far-reaching changes that were gradually taking hold in urban places throughout the industrialized world. These transformations were becoming evident in daily life, perception, and experience, and they encompassed broad phenomena such as urbanization, immigration, mobility, and—not coincidentally—a society saturated with forms of spectacle and spectatorship.

Commercial Landlords are Stealing San Francisco's Soul - Brokeass Stuart
Jon Handlery, often referred to as the Donald Trump of Union Square. Upon inheriting the vast fortune of his daddy’s Union Square real estate empire, Handlery turned around and began evicting San Francisco landmarks.

In 2012, he got rid of the Gold Dust Lounge, which had been a San Francisco institution since 1933, so multinational clothing store Express could move in. (There was already an Express three blocks away at the mall.) Last year, Handlery evicted Lefty O’Doul’s, the legendary Union Square restaurant and bar that had been serving love and baseball to San Franciscans and tourists since 1958.

Bookbinders Museum
The American Bookbinders Museum is the only museum of its kind in North America, celebrating and exploring the culture and tools of bookbinders and bookbinding from its earliest forms through the changes and innovations of the industrial revolution. In addition to the craft and artistry of binding, we focus on the stories of the men, women, and children who worked in binderies.
The American Bookbinders Museum was founded by a commercial bookbinder who became fascinated with the craft’s history, researching and acquiring vintage materials. As this collection of machines, books and periodicals grew it raised the question of what to do with it. The answer was to use these resources to share the equipment, materials, and the stories of bookbinders and binding through history, to shed light on the craft and the larger history of the book.

High housing costs and long commutes drive more workers to sleep in cars
In California, especially high-rent coastal areas and the booming Bay Area, many lower-income residents have moved inland to escape ballooning housing costs, leading to a spike in supercommuters. A Pew study found the number of Californians traveling 90 minutes or more to get to work jumped 40 percent between 2005 and 2015. A New York Times article in August offered a poignant case study of this phenomenon: an office worker making $81,000 a year who still needs to wake up at 2:15 a.m. for her marathon commute

In recent months, a growing number of tech leaders have been flirting with the idea of leaving Silicon Valley. Some cite the exorbitant cost of living in San Francisco and its suburbs, where even a million-dollar salary can feel middle class. Others complain about local criticism of the tech industry and a left-wing echo chamber that stifles opposing views. And yet others feel that better innovation is happening elsewhere.

Love (S Francisco com'e' oggi)
Rory Carroll, sul Guardian, ha scritto che “qui oggi ‘comunità’ è un eufemismo per clienti e quando si dice ‘amore libero’ tutti pensano a Tinder”. San Francisco è la città con gli affitti più alti del mondo (in media 2.400 euro al mese per 50 metri quadrati) e, con Los Angeles e New York, una delle città degli Stati Uniti, e quindi del pianeta, dove vivono più miliardari.

Dietro a Dolores park, a poche centinaia di metri dalla casa di Mark Zuckerberg, dormono ogni notte decine di senzatetto. Sono 7.499 in tutta la città, secondo le ultime stime rese pubbliche il 16 giugno. Molti sono giovanissimi. Si accampano nei parchi e per strada. Ogni tanto la polizia li caccia. E loro, pazientemente, il giorno dopo ritornano.

Christina Krea Gomez on Indians, White Feminists, and the Women's March
The San Francisco Women's March didn't have any Indigenous speakers, instead they had a white women who told native women that she was a "shaman" speak on behalf of Indigenous people. No acknowledgement of being on stolen land.
Instead they met at "Pioneer Monument" a block from SF City Hall, already a disrespect to Indigenous people, the monument glorifies the stealing of our land by paying homage to Sir Francis Drake, Father Junipero Serra, John Sutter and John Fremont, where white men climbed and used a statue of a Native man to prop themselves up to see the march by standing on it's head.
I had white women walk up to me and violate my personal space to smudge themselves with my sage at the Oakland march.

Jeremy Vasquez and the African American Male Achievement at Mission High School
Launched by the Oakland Unified School District in 2010, the African American Male Achievement program wrapped up its first semester at Mission High School in San Francisco this month.

According to the OUSD website, the program’s stated goal is to “stop the epidemic failure of African American male students” and is designed to improve their academic and life outcomes. After several academic years in Oakland, the program expanded across the bay to San Francisco for the first time this fall.

Written on a whiteboard in a classroom at Mission High School, the first and only S.F. high school to launch the program, the objective is written simply: “Engage. Encourage. Empower.” All black males in grades 9-12 are required to take the class.

The program’s curriculum places an emphasis on African-American history that empowers young men. Through unconventional methods of teaching like chanting and music, students receive lessons on major civil rights leaders, such as Malcolm X and the Black Panther Party, and not on history lessons that focus on slavery or oppression of blacks.

“[Students can] finally come into a space they own. They can challenge the status quo,” said Jeremy Vasquez, a Mission High School teacher who leads the African American Male Achievement program there. “They’re able to come into [an academic environment] that is known to be institutionally racist and speak on it. ‘Like, we’re doing the slavery [topic] again? Again? I’ve heard this every single year I’ve been in school. Can we change the narrative?’ ”

Racism and the Bay Area Queer Anti-Fascist Network
Someone in the infamous flag thread asked if this group was for white queers. I really had a hard time answering that, since initial inquiries to the group by a number of us before the town hall meeting on whether or not there were any BIPOC in leadership positions was never responded to. (Edit, it was responded to, but it was buried and I missed the notification, screenshot in comments), I for one feel like this should actually for real be addressed. How are we going to cultivate intersectionality within the group, and center BIPOC voices and needs as a priority while we fight this racist system? I'm meaning this to be a thread for ideas to address this as this group is forming. I say this with love and solidarity with everyone here committed to fighting fascism on all fronts, including interpersonally.

Tenderloin Will Not Be Gentrified!
The commercial real estate firm JLL wants to rebrand the Tenderloin as “Union Square West” to attract new investment, new consumers and new people.

In a far more aggressive posture than the often more insidious ways of gentrification, JLL wants to create a 16-square-block shopping district in the heart of the Tenderloin so companies like Ralph Lauren, West Elm and The Container Store can relocate to our side of downtown.

This isn’t new to our beloved neighborhood; we’ve seen many attempts by newcomers, yuppies and capitalist exploiters to change the name and makeup of our neighborhood: Trendyloin, Tendernob and, now, Union Square West.

Aliyah Dunn-Salahuddin - Breaking historical silence to heal from historical wounds: Remembering the 1966 Hunters Point Uprising
During the fall of 1966, racial and economic disparity exploded into a violent three-day conflict between local and state law enforcement, the National Guard and the Black community of Bayview Hunters Point after the fatal killing of 16 year-old African-American youth Matthew Johnson by white police officer Alvin Johnson. This left a deep wound adding to the historical trauma experienced by African-Americans.

Now more than ever it is time for us to tell our stories. We must explore our past if we hope to heal and move forward as a community.

Boom: The Art of Resistance
Communities in the Bay Area are being pulled apart on a daily basis, an ongoing pattern since the colonization of Ohlone land. Unfortunately, the “real estate snakkkes and devil-opers”, as Poor Mag deems them, have sharpened their house-flipping and wealth-siphoning skills in this second tech boom. With a nod to Boom: The Sound of Eviction, a collectively made film documenting the housing crisis and affiliated activism during the 90’s dot-com era, Dreyer is organizing Boom: The Art of Resistance as an exhibition and growing visual archive of current Bay Area anti-displacement tactics. The included works represent a broad array of grassroots and coalition-oriented efforts designed to hold onto ‘home’ while laying the groundwork for just and equitable futures.

Though there are countless groups fighting displacement throughout the Bay, it can still be difficult for some individuals to find ways to plug in, and in some instances, to understand their responsibility to communities facing eviction. In mapping out initiatives, from long-haul campaigns to everyday gestures, Boom: The Art of Resistance presents critical reflections on race, class and accessibility politics within the struggles, while calling for all hands on deck.

Rents drop in San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose simultaneously
Right on the heels of ApartmentList’s declaration that, seemingly against all odds, San Francisco rents have declined to the point that New York City (or at least Manhattan) eclipses us once again, competitor Zumper weighs in with an analysis of its own platform.

Zumper doesn’t agree with ApartmentList on the subject of New York’s resurgence (not that we expected them to). The site still calls San Francisco the most expensive city in America for renters, averaging $3,460 for a single bedroom. In New York, it comes to $3,200.

Still, that’s down 1.4 percent from last month and 1.1 percent from last year. And the price of two bedrooms remained more or less flat for four weeks. New York, on the other hand, is on the rise in Zumper’s listings, so the two sites may yet end up agreeing.
But here’s the potentially big news: For the first time ever, Zumper recorded a simultaneous decline in San Francisco, San Jose, and Oakland for the same month.

Bruce Lee and Philosophy
Bruce Lee's legacy includes a revolutionary book on the martial arts and Eastern philosophy, and seven volumes of writings on everything from Taoism, quantum physics, psychotherapy and the power of positive thinking. John Little, who examined Lee's papers after the actor's death, says he was stunned when he first entered Lee's library. He had at least 1,700 heavily annotated books. That's when he realized that Lee sharpened his mind as much as his body.
"The philosophy of Lee is more powerful than the martial arts of Lee," says Little, author of "The Warrior Within: The Philosophies of Bruce Lee." "Everything that Bruce Lee did flowed from his mind and his thinking."
And it flowed from his pride in his Chinese heritage as well.Lee was a devotee of Alan Watts, a 20th century British philosopher who introduced Eastern thought to Western audiences. Lee would tape Watts' lectures and play them back to his martial arts students in class.
Lee, too, saw himself as bridge.

In 2000 he was a co-founder of the Colours of Resistance network, which served as a think tank and clearinghouse of anti-racist feminist analysis and tools for activists in the U.S. and Canada. After Sept. 11th, 2001, he helped to found the Heads Up Collective which brought together a cadre of white anti-racist organizers to build up the multiracial Left in the San Francisco, Bay Area through alliances between the majority white anti-war movement and locally-based economic and racial justice struggles in communities of color. He was also a member of the Against Patriarchy Men’s Group that supported men in developing their feminist analysis and their feminist leadership.

He has written widely about anti-racist and social justice organizing, lessons from women of color feminism, and strategies to
build visionary movements. His essays have been translated into half a dozen languages, taught in hundreds of classrooms, and included in over a dozen anthologies including Globalize Liberation: How to Uproot the System and Build a Better World, On the Road to Healing: An Anthology for Men Ending Sexism, and We Have Not Been Moved: Resisting Racism and Militarism in 21st Century America.

He graduated from San Francisco State University in Race, Class, Gender and Power Studies. Originally from California, he currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee with his partner Jardana Peacock and their son, River. He is a Unitarian Universalist and works with faith-based communities to help build up the spiritual Left.

Most Wanted: San Francisco flyers name and shame Airbnb hosts
In recent weeks, “Wanted” flyers have been posted around the neighborhood featuring the names and photographs of 12 individuals. The crime in question? “Airbnb’ing our community” and “destroying affordable housing for immigrant, minority, & low income families.”

Unlike a flyer posted recently in the Mission District that featured the heads of various tech CEOs, including Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky, impaled on spikes, the Chinatown flyer names and shames individual Airbnb hosts.“Chinatown has generally been preserved and defended against gentrification,” said Joyce Lam of the Chinese Progressive Association, a group that organizes workers and tenants in the neighborhood. Strict zoning laws enacted during the 1980s have protected the stock of single-room occupancy (SRO) hotels, which serve as low cost housing for newly arrived immigrants, as well as many elderly Chinese Americans. With their shared kitchens and bathrooms, Lam said the SROs can feel “like a village” to the multi-generation families crowded into single rooms.

But units that once changed hands solely through word of mouth or Chinese language flyers posted on the street are now popping up on Craigslist, Airbnb, and other short-term rental sites, as landlords have realized that they can earn more money renting to college graduates, single adults and white people, Lam said.

The Loneliness of Being Black in San Francisco
The decline has been steady and noticeable. One of seven residents was black in 1970. Today, it is nearly one of 20, with most of the city’s 46,000 blacks living in public housing. When black communities, which were splintered into three areas in San Francisco, lost their barber shops, restaurants and clubs, they lost their centers of gravity, according to Willie Brown. The final draft of a city-commissioned report, published in January, said redevelopment benefited prominent members of the business community whose “real motivation was the replacement of low-value ‘slums’ with high-value commercial and residential development.” Blacks who remain have been subject to racial profiling by the police, according to the public defender’s office, and a recent report commissioned by the city cited a host of actions by the police against blacks that appear to be discriminatory. In 1968, black students at what was then San Francisco State College (now San Francisco State University) held a prolonged strike that led to the creation of the nation’s first black studies program, a campaign chronicled in the recent documentary “Agents of Change.” Jazz singer Barbara Gainer says she is regularly asked if she wants to sell her house; her mailbox fills up with solicitations. The inquiries were flattering at first because they reminded her of the value of her property, but now she feels singled out. She remembers one couple in particular who approached her four or five times about selling. She tried to dissuade them.

“I said: ‘Even if I sold you my house and you gave me this big price, why would I do that? Where would I live?’”

The reply stunned her: “You should go to Antioch. That’s where your people go.”

Allan Bérubé: “No Red-Baiting! No Race-Baiting! No Queen-Baiting!” The Story of the Marine Cooks and Stewards Union
Some of the men who came to his lectures on World War II and whom he later interviewed told him about another experience from those years: their work aboard cruise liners in the 1930s and 1940s. They described to Bérubé a truth-stranger-than-fiction tale of a labor union that in the 1930s was left-wing, multi-racial, and gay-friendly. The history of the MCSU became the project that he pursued for the rest of his life, as he attempted, through both oral histories and deep archival and documentary research, to recover the forgotten story of this labor union and the struggles of its members for respect.
Although he died without completing a draft of the book manuscript, Bérubé delivered his illustrated lecture on the MCSU dozens of times, not only to LGBT community audiences and on campuses, but also to audiences of trade union members and activists. He presented the rich visuals with two slide projectors working in tandem, pushing the technology of the time to accommodate the rapid-fire illustrations. In this ninety-minute version, delivered in Canada, Bérubé made the decision to shift from English to French for a short stretch early on in the presentation. His own French-Canadian ancestry was important to him, as were the struggles of French Canadians to preserve their language and culture in a larger Anglo-Canadian nation.

‘Tech tax’: San Francisco mulls plan for taxing the rich to house the poor A payroll levy on the city’s largest tech companies – such as Google, Twitter, Uber and Airbnb – aims to tackle inequality, but some have savaged the proposal
Under the plan, large tech employers in the city, potentially including Google, Twitter, Uber, Airbnb and Salesforce, would be required to pay a 1.5% payroll tax. The estimated $120m in annual revenue would be used to fund affordable housing and services for the city’s large homeless population. More than a few tech workers have gained viral notoriety for anti-homeless screeds. A seminal moment came in 2011, when homegrown Twitter threatened to decamp somewhere cheaper and more business friendly.

The city responded, first by offering a payroll tax break to companies like Twitter that located in its rundown Central Market neighborhood, and then by phasing out the payroll tax altogether and replacing it with a gross receipts tax – a popular change for tech companies that often have large workforces before they have any revenue. The tech tax would partially turn back the clock, bringing back the 1.5% payroll tax, but only for tech companies. Supporters of the tax admit that its passage is a political long shot, requiring the support of six supervisors to place it on the ballot (they currently have just three), followed by a two-thirds majority of voters in November.

Nate Allbee, who works in Supervisor David Campos’s office and wrote the legacy business legislation, addressed the crowd, saying that legacy status — which helps longtime business owners with city grants and lease negotiations — would help, but only in so much as it would probably at most shave $2000 off the oncoming monthly $9500 in rent. He added that historic preservation of the building itself may protect the facade, but that the interior could be destroyed and built upon.

Artist and nightlife fixture Mica Sigourney aka VivvyAnne ForeverMore!, hostess of Club Some Thing at the Stud, has announced he is forming a community co-op to buy the club. For anyone interested in supporting the effort, contact Sigourney at: houseofhorseface@gmail.com

A San Francisco Entrepreneur Finds Room to Grow, Until Politics Intrude
Ten years ago, Andrew Beebee stood up for the oppressed by joining an antiapartheid sit-in at the Dartmouth College administration building. So it was a painful irony for him late last month when protesters stormed his Internet start-up here and occupied its offices.

"Aqui estamos, y no nos vamos," the demonstrators chanted -- "We are here, and we won't go."

To them, Mr. Beebee is an oppressor. His burgeoning dot-com, based in this city's largely Hispanic Mission district, is part of a wave of gentrification that is displacing many of the barrio's working-class residents and small-business owners.

Old, Female, and Homeless
 Every homeless advocate and shelter monitor I spoke with told me the older homeless population in San Francisco is exploding. The problem is bound to get worse as the price of housing reaches new heights. San Francisco is the most expensive city in the country for renters, according to a March 2012 report by the National Low Income Housing Coalition. Small studio apartments are going for as much as $2,000 a month, which requires a salary of at least $70,000 a year.

And it’s not just San Francisco. The cost of living in most major metropolitan areas is on the rise, while wages are down. In states like California, ongoing budget cuts to services like the Supplemental Security Income, In-Home Supportive Services and adult day healthcare centers are making it harder for elderly people to pay for housing. According to the latest numbers from Hearth, an organization working to end elder homelessness, the country had 40,750 homeless people 62 or older in 2012. As the nation’s population ages, that number is expected to more than double by 2050.

Airbnb in Disputes With New York and San Francisco
Airbnb has charmed and strong-armed lawmakers around the world to allow it to operate in their communities. But two cities, Airbnb’s hometown, San Francisco, and New York, the service’s largest United States market, have not been so compliant. The Silicon Valley venture capitalist and Airbnb investor Ron Conway made matters worse when, after donating to Bill de Blasio’s mayoral campaign, he flew to New York and told Mr. deBlasio and business leaders to follow San Francisco’s example or fall behind in innovation and growth, according to people who attended one of the meetings. That message was not well received.

In response, Mr. Conway said in an email that New York City “won’t even entertain a real conversation” about innovation and the city in the process has become “its own worse enemy.”

Black Lives Matter pulls out of San Francisco gay pride over policing
On Tuesday, SF Pride announced that this year’s events would have a “significant police presence” and that, for the first time in the celebration’s 46-year history, attendees at the festival would be required to pass through security screening. The decision was made in the wake of the mass shooting at an LGBT nightclub in Orlando, in which 49 people were killed. “The San Francisco police department has proven time and again – by racially profiling and murdering black people, black trans people – that they cannot keep us safe,” said Shanelle Matthews, a spokesperson for Black Lives Matter, at the event. “We know that some people will feel safe at Pride, but we will not.” SF Pride board president Michelle Meow appeared to accept and even endorse the withdrawals. “Increasing police presence in our community is not the solution,” she said. Meow expressed hope that SF Pride would be able to find a different solution for next year’s event. “We didn’t have enough time to regroup and rethink our safety,” she said. “We have to get through this year so we can think about what safety means outside of police protection, because that is not the answer.”

Safety in the wake of Orlando — community, not police
In the words of Southerners on New Ground, we continue to explore these questions: “What will it take to build a safety many of us have never experienced? What would we need to call on each other instead of the police? What would it take to have saved every person inside of Pulse? How do we hold the cultural and political architects of this oh so deliberate tragedy accountable?”

As an initial answer, we have pulled together the following resources for exploring community safety by addressing the root causes of violence, and relying on each other instead of the state. We plan to develop more resources in the coming weeks.

Black Lives Matter, others pull out of SF Pride Parade
Black Lives Matter Bay Area (scheduled to receive Pride’s Lifetime Achievement award), sex worker health clinic St. James Infirmary (receiving the “Heritage of Pride” award), and anti-incarceration TGI Justice Project‘s Janetta Johnson (a community grand marshal) held a press conference this morning to announce their withdrawal from the parade and celebration. The organizations will still accept their awards. They came together to form a coalition and make the withdrawal statement, according to TGI JP spokesperson Woods Ervin. “When Janetta heard that there would be sweeps of street-based communities and the increased police presence, we knew we had to do something,” Ervin told 48 Hills by phone. “The appropriate response to the Orlando tragedy is nor more policing of communities of color, who are already the most vulnerable to abuse and are the most alienated by increased police presence. This does not make those communities feel safer."

LGBT Latinos forgotten in Orlando vigil planning; Democrats pull desperate move
Amidst the stirring speeches delivered to thousands at Castro and Market streets, I noticed a curious protest by an openly gay Latino speaker, Lito Sandoval. The very first thing he told the crowd of mourners was that LGBT Latinos who spoke on stage had to “ask” to address them. They weren’t invited. That struck me as more than odd, considering the 49 folks shot and killed at Pulse were not only in a gay club, but were mostly Latino.

Following up, openly gay Latino community leader Erick Arguello (who was on stage) told me, “Well, you know, it’s kind of historic” for gay Latinos to be ignored, citing a whitewashing of the Stonewall riots in New York City.

And so it was with Sunday’s vigil, he said. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence spoke. White LGBT leaders like Scott Wiener, Tom Ammiano and Mark Leno spoke. But with the exception of Supervisor David Campos, there weren’t too many Latinos — except the group that pushed to be there.

Estelle Freedman - When Feminists Take On Judges Over Rape
Californians can resort to this mechanism because, in 1911, during the Progressive Era, the state’s voters passed a measure allowing the recall of judges (at the same time, they added an amendment to the state Constitution giving women the right to vote). Two years later, newly enfranchised women in San Francisco flexed their political muscles by petitioning for the recall of a police court justice, Charles Weller. women’s clubs in San Francisco took action. They had been instrumental in a recent campaign to expand statutory rape protection to girls under 18. A Women’s Political League gathered enough signatures to force a recall election. The group accused Judge Weller of abusing judicial power “by extending undue and unreasonable leniency to persons charged with the commission of heinous and vicious offenses.” Its slogan was “All’s Well That Ends Weller.” Voters agreed, and they replaced the judge with the reformers’ candidate.
