Rote Flora: "Access all areas" - International day of action
The squat Rote Flora This is a proposal for a International day of action at the end of the year against capitalist urban development and gentrification. We are different activists around the squatted Rote Flora and the Right to the City Network in Hamburg, organized in the campaign "Flora remains disagreeable", to defend this project against a potential eviction. As regards content, we don't want to focus Rote Flora itself, but on political issues being symbolised by it and on issues connecting it with your local struggles. It would be great, if you distribute this call and give us feedback up to August 22 if you would like to take an active part or contribute criticism or suggestions.

Free Gary Johnson! Homelessness in California is now punishable by a year in jail.
[Photo by Liberation News.  Daily protests at the Santa Cruz Courthouse from 7:3 For protesting on the county steps against Santa Cruz laws that make it illegal for the homeless to sleep at night, homeless activists Gary Johnson (no relation to Becky Johnson) and Attorney Ed Frey were sentenced to 6 months in jail on June 10th. Bail was set for Ed Frey, pending appeal, at $50,000. Their only act of civil disobedience was sleeping. This occurred at their three month protest called "Peace Camp 2010". Revealing the political nature of the draconian sentences, Judge Gallagher told homeless activist Gary Johnson that he "could get some sleep in jail" before they were dragged away in chains for their 6 month sentences. The law they were protesting makes it illegal for the homeless to sleep at night, outside or in a vehicle.

Foreclosed homeowner reclaims home seized by Wells Fargo and remains in possession
On February 24th, Berkeley, California resident Tanya Dennis broke back into her home, seized by Wells Fargo, and remained in possession. Dennis says that she has a forensic loan audit establishing that Wells Fargo is not the holder of her note, and that she lost an unlawful detainer action on process rather than pleading. She also said that Wells Fargo was able to win an unlawful detainer action against her because she is a Pro se litigant, i.e., she is acting as her own lawyer, and Wells Fargo has better attorneys,

Middle Class Denial of Privileges is Offensive to the Poor
Picture a hungry mob of poor people. Then picture someone in the middle of that mob with a huge platter of food for just them. That is the beginning scenario that mocks current U.S. society. I understand the middle class are playing victim routinely nowadays, whining about things like foreclosures on their homes, but in all honesty, the poor don't even have houses to foreclose on (no, we pay endless exorbitant rent in excess of mortgages, so middle class people inherit)...
