    So, where do we donate $$? Marching & chanting is all well & good, but only $$ will keep them open. Where does the income stream start?

      When we fought to keep Catherine Ferguson Academy open, they also said there was no money, but they came up with a solution. There was “no money” before the banks were bailed out to the tune of many trillion dollars. There is money in our society, in our economy, the question is building enough power to get those that have it to cough it up.

    The barrage of attacks against Detroit, a 90+% black city, is outrageous. We need more occupations like this to save Detroit! Solidarity from Occupy Berkeley and all occupy movements across the world!
