“We all need somebody to lean on”
No matter how “together” one is, most people of this earth actually need help. Whether that be spiritual uplifting, emotional encouragement, physical assistance, or (to put it plainly) money. PARC (Peoples’ Action for Rights and Community) truly needs financial help.
It is actually very honoring and humbling that I am able to write this email asking all kinds of kind people for money donations to keep PARC’s door open. I wish I was able to donate cash for rent and bills. I do feel good while washing dishes after people have had nourishment, sweeping or mopping the floor after thankful people have come in and out from the sunshine or the rain, setting up tents for the night, giving out blankets and warm clothing, or cheering someone with singing or conversation. The PARC space also allows us to make literature and set up weekly informational displays about ending long term solitary confinement. It’s a big deal that we receive the financial help we need.
Giving of one’s time and energy helps people who come to PARC, and it contributes to the community organizing that goes on here. Sadly, money is the only thing to ensure that this welcoming, safe, blessing of a place can actually stay open.
So, to the gritty details.
PARC desperately needs funds for:
2 separate Phone Bills: Each phone line services two purposes, including a jail support hotline and, recently to support people facing ICE harassment in Humboldt
PARC rent: $750 to the kindest “landlord” ever; for a space that is open almost every day of the year and almost every minute between 9:30am and 9:30pm
Electricity and Gas Bills: at this point, payments are overdue!
Additional need this month: A few of us from PARC have been helping someone who has no shelter and who has recently been very hurt and traumatized. We’ve been paying for campground stays and other expenses (i.e. gasoline) and working toward setting up a more long-term and stable situation. Although the campgrounds are cheap, we are BROKE. Please help.

Thank you! Thank you to everyone who gives money, spends time laundering towels and clothes, donates food, gives their smiles and encouragement, and fills PARC with life and the spirit of resistance.

On Wednesday, February 26, traveling judge, Richard Scheuler sentenced Burnt Ranch resident, Donna Huebsch to time served for the killing of 39-year-old Adrian Rael in August of 2012. Donna Huebsch./Trinity County booking photo Trinity County prosecutor, Mike Harper said that in the 16 months since the homicide, Huebsch had three attorneys working her case. After she hired the fourth, Arcata-based Russell Clanton, a statement she initially gave investigators, resurfaced and she was offered a two-year sentence if she agreed to plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter, a lesser charge than murder.

It’s Time for Eureka to Pay Reparations to Indigenous Peoples

mnemonic here http://urlet.com/oilers.choices
The Eureka City Council has just shamed itself with a retraction of a mild apology to the Wiyot People for the Indian Island Massacre.
We will deal with these racist cowards at the ballot box in November.
In the meantime, it is time for the people of Eureka to bring forth an initiative to pay the Wiyot People reparations for the crimes that have been committed against them and in partial recompense for lands that have been stolen from them.
I propose as a starting point for talks the sum of one million dollars per year to be paid directly to the local Native Peoples.
Let’s get together soon and draft a simple initiative to do this and gather our signatures. It is the right thing to do.
I know Linda Atkins personally and she is no racist so I assume she was buffaloed by some Hobson’s choice presented on short notice. But she can speak to that.

Local Union Asks Public “DO NOT PATRONIZE LOST COAST BREWERY”
shortlink here: http://wp.me/p38Pt0-ke
mnemonic here: http://urlet.com/choice.parent
According to a leaflet obtained by this blogger outside of the Eureka Theater tonight the United Association of Plumbers & Steamfitters is asking the public to refrain from patronizing the Lost Coast Brewery.
At issue is the claim that the Lost Coast Brewery has contracted with potentially substandard out of area contractors to build the new brewery.
The union claims that Lost Coast has contracted with Hansen-Rice out of Idaho, who has subcontracted with Cone Plumbing of Yreka.
Time for the real reporters to get busy.
