This is the opening act of the second People’s Park 50th Anniversary rally and concert, the drumming circle. Long-time People’s Park resident/activist Yukon Hannibal speaks out on the shocking and tragic gun murder that occurred just two days before the event. The spoken work is spontaneous, emotional, and powerful. It provides good background to the current culture and political problems the park residents deal with, and the grief everyone who knew him has. (18 min.)

Listen to audio from most of the second 5-hour rally and concert held this month at People’s Park, to both celebrate the Park still held for homeless and others in the general public since it was seized by force from the U.C. Berkeley regime in 1969. The latest U.C. privatization plan, if successful, will have the university take back, pave over, and use for student housing. Park residents and the general public are ramping up the organizing to retain control of the park. (3 hrs. and 44 min.).
Listen to audio from the first of two People’s Park 50th Anniversary rally and concert held in People’s Park on April 13th, 2019. The event is to both celebrate the 50th year of public ownership of the park since the people seized from UC Berkeley in 1969; and to actively stand against the current UC plan to take it back from the homeless and public to use for student housing. Listen and use this audio, spread this recording around, because more activist support is needed to stop the current development plans. (3 hrs. and 38 min.)
Stephon Clark, AB392, Chelsea Manning, and Urban Shield are discussed in this morning's UpFront program on KPFA.
