Stop Green Diamond From Destroying Redwood Forests

From the redwoodforestdefense on Instagram:   Hi new supporters and kindred spirits!� We're a group of friends living in a canopy of redwood trees on Yurok land (the north coast of so-called California). After four peaceful months of treesitting, Green Diamond moved in two weeks ago with bulldozers and chainsaws and began logging right next to us. We responded by putting up more treesits and holding strong ✊� Our presence in this forest prevents our friends from being cut down by Greed Diamond, a billionaire-owned logging company currently operating on a greenwashed "environmentally-responsible" Timber Harvest Plan (THP) using clear-cutting. Clear-cutting is a method of logging that enables them to uniformly desecrate mass acres of forest at a time, displacing the symbiotic ecosystems that are balanced with and for the presence of each pricklecone pine, each banana slug, each waterway, each hillside, each ruffle lichen. This destruction intentionally and irreversibly reduces the rainforest's complex biome to a profitable, "sustainable" tree farm. Logging of the Redwood forest has been occuring for the past 200 years. This history of logging is the same history of westward expansion responsible for the genocide and displacement of the indigenous people of the Americas, the same industrialization that created the resource extractions of the gold rush and the construction of the railroads. The continued sense of entitlement Green Diamond, the US Forest Service, and other logging interests have to the possession, control, and exploitation of the remaining 5% of the Redwood Forest can no longer be validated by the empty powers established by settler coloniality and coercive rhetoric of resource-hoarding law. By living with these trees, we also liberate and decolonize ourselves of these oppressive ideologies. We act against corporate greed and for the forests, planet, and future generations. We are in solidarity with land defenders and water protectors fighting for the sacred and for complete Indigenous sovereignty worldwide.�

Recall California Governor Gavin Newsom! Make California Great Again.

Please download, Sign, and mail in the petition here, https://recallgavin2020.com/petition/ Summary of the Problem,  Governor Gavin Newsom in addition to Governor Jerry Brown have declared California a Sanctuary State, importing illegal immigrants to replace the people of California, and give them California's tax payer funded goods and services in order to alter the voting demographics against Americans, and in favor of Democrats. Recently, in 2019 within months of taking office, Governor Gavin Newsom pulled troops off the southern border when President Trump attempted to stop illegal immigrant caravans from entering the United States which threaten all of the United States not just California, and continues to allow immigrants to flow into California threw the Southern border. Because Democrat Governor Jerry Brown and his Lieutenant Governor, now Governor Gavin Newsom declared California a Sanctuary State.  These policies have rapidly increased California prison population and homeless encampments with illegal immigrants, and impacted public schools, and prohibit State Law Enforcement to cooperate with Federal Law Enforcement, ie ICE who's job is to deport illegal immigrant criminal offenders. Californians did not vote for Sanctuary Cities, or for California to feud with President Trump to bring in illegal immigrants to replace Californian citizens.  Therefore, here is a petition to Recall Governor Gavin Newsom.  If you agree please sign the Petition.

FUSD to start live online classes during school closure

We need FUSD (Fremont Unified School District) to start live online classes during the COVID-19 coronavirus shut down. Everyone in America is coming up with innovative solutions to deal with the problem. For e.g. Where possible companies have implemented work from home (WFH), the governments have put in motion an entire set of steps that have been unprecedented to deal with the crisis. What FUSD has done in this time is simply close schools, send out material via emails, and not even giving any feedback about child's progress or performance. One of the critical skills we reinforce with our children is the ability to adapt in adversity and every adversity has a seed of opportunity. FUSD needs to demonstrate that by example and start live online classes. Shut down by government for social distancing is a need to stop the virus spread but shut down by school with no interactions is not acceptable. Many parents WFH are also stressed out about having to perform at work while having to parent full time. We need FUSD to immediately think about creative solutions and reopen classes online. In addition, not all parents are skilled at handling questions children come up with. There is no substitute for some sort of live interaction between teacher and students. Governor Newsom has passed an executive order for distance learning: https://www.cde.ca.gov/ls/he/hn/distancelearning.asp Note: A few individual teachers seem to have taken initiative but this appeal is about FUSD to come up with measures
