LA Right to Housing Collective Return to City Hall After Being Brutalized

Cops on City Hall South Lawn after Press Conference

Media Coverage: City News Service Coverage of Press Conference

–May 31, 2010

On Wednesday May 26, 2010 members of the Los Angeles Right to Housing Collective returned to City Hall on the heels of the “Rent Freeze Ruckus.” Days earlier, while attempting to secure a 6-month rent freeze for Los Angeles renters, the City Council unleashed the LAPD to silence our chants of displeasure (see earlier post below). Those chants in no way posed a physical threat to any person or property in council chambers; however, our chants of truth was clearly too much for a “bought and paid for” city council to stomach.

Acutely aware that the City Hall belongs to all Angelenos; that we pay the salaries of our wayward council people; and, that the LAPD supposedly still protects and serves everyone we felt justified in going back to the scene of their sins.

Prior to going inside chambers to face council members the Housing Collective held a press conference to decry the human rights violations and to affirm that we will continue fighting. Within minutes of our arrival it was clear that the LAPD would again be in full force hoping to quell our voices. A steady stream of officers arrived with riot gear in hand. During the press conference one officer actually walked into the group of residents gathered and attempted to serve a subpoena. Of course the person they tried to serve was not the person they were looking for, which makes you question what they were really attempting to do.

Once inside City Hall the scene did not change much. Officers lined the walls inside chambers, stood sentry over the hallway and entrance leading to chambers, and still many others gathered in the rotunda. There was nervousness among the councilmembers in the air as the agenda got underway. It was clear from the immediate shuffling of school children in and out of council chambers that our “selected leaders” were on edge. During public comment speakers form Coalition LA, Comunidad Presente, Inquilidos Unidos, LA CAN, POWER, SAJE and Union de Vecinos eloquently addressed, and noticeably shamed, council members who dared listen. It was most disturbing, though, that none of the councilmembers responded in any way and, besides Councilmember Alarcon, all have remained silent about the brutality that happened right in front of their eyes last week.

When we exited City Hall, there were large groups of officers awaiting us at every turn.  Many of them were in riot gear, with helmets in hand.  This unacceptable overuse of police in response to residents peacefully lifting their voices must be addressed and stopped immediately. We are urge you to call and email your Councilmembers, as well as Councilmember Garcetti specifically, expressing your feelings about the rent freeze being killed and the use of police force and violence in Council Chambers.

The fight is far from over and we remain committed to securing the human right to housing.

UPDATE:

First, the good news is that Gerardo, Dogon and Deanna are all out of jail.  Gerardo’s charges were rejected by the DA on Tuesday morning, which is great news.  Deanna and Dogon both have court appearances scheduled for mid-June.  We will definitely need your support in the courtrooms.

  1. Re: 10 percent (-) = homeless program’s?

    (‘they’) ain’t/haven’t done anything as it is/was; except keep homeless/housing related – oriented agencies/organization’s ill – functioning, and for what? regardless from you alls point of view, as it ain’t (your) butt/life on the line, ruined/destroyed/traumatized/distraughted/broken spirited, triggering/stressor’s any number of resulting (there afters), ie: drug’s, alcohol, mental/emotional, misc abuse, misc/etc, even those whom, say, because of a lack of or zero result’s with any legal assistance, were/have been and victim’s of illegally evicted, former good rent paying tenant’s whom ‘had’ a life, were involved in and with local community, misc, but got/are tired of having to rely on ill various inspection agencies, re: having to ‘call out on’ slumlord’s per/via vast building properties code violation’s, community neighborhood’s with exhibited trash all over streets and residential building properties, graffiti, misc all over, looking like 3rd world countries, all because badly run/corrupt, misc/etc – HUD and housing authorities, inspection agencies, ETC across the board do more to, essentially cover their (own – butt, agendas’, friend’s, family, and who they know), all the while, no – they (anyone in power) can’t be accountable for suicide death’s, but again, it goes back to any number of thing’s, character, triggering/stressor’s, ‘i.f.w.’ – ill free will usage.
    “L.A.H.S.A.” still ill – shows 48,000 plus homeless any given day/night. And how (they?) managed to get the difference of 30,000 (from former 78,000) homeless rounded up and housed, or run off elsewhere, hence, disappeared (demographic stat number – wise), wherever, if even solely amidst ill – boundaries of “Downtown LA Skid Row (aside from “Westside Skid Row” = “City of Venice”, per/via Bill Rosenberg and “LAPD” task force wearing horse eye blind’s, ie: MacArthur Park’s ‘May Day’, instead of truly dealing with problem’s and helping homeless in need thereof, in Venice).

    Despite proven evidenced and documented LA city and county bad local government, but nothing fazes anyone/no one/ No true/honest, stone cold faced, zero tolerant, ‘Regulator’ attitude/character, ie: Billy the Kid played – Emilio Estevez: “They’ll let Murphy and his bankers, etc – get away with anything and I can’t allow that! The more fools I dust/smoke, the more news stories they write, indirect blood they spill, innocent lives they ruin/destroy/traumatize/leave distraught and broken spirited. The more troops/blue coats 5 – 0, khaki 5 – 0/suit and tie feds/etc, misc – they send out after us/ie: whom Jesus really biblically came down for – back in the day, the more President Hayes/local city, county, state, national and global ill power holder’s – is/are gonna have to raise an eyebrow; Come down and see for himself/themselves what’s going on here”. Billy had the guts, the balls, the true/honest, stone cold faced, zero tolerant, ‘Regulator’ attitude/character, to step the hell up and stand up for what’s right, sound, and proper for local civilian humanity as a whole.

    But no, like biblical Roman soldier’s ill – rolling on the scene – rounding up, exhibited abuse, misc. So much blood – so enveloped in it – on the hand’s of local city, county, state, national and global ill power holder’s – those publicly known and secretly hiding amidst the silhouette’s and shadow’s of (6,919,445,717), ie: the elites, wall street, Level 6 unknown personnel/off the grid/or ? – to us, don’t exist, though their down here amidst humanity.

    And (?) humanity (past and current present – ie: 6,919,445,717) wonders ‘WHY’ Father God Jehovah allows Lucifer/Satan just alittle/minimal power? BECAUSE – in the word’s of Ben Affleck (sharing a conversation with Matt Damon, “It’s them, the humans’, it’s always been them, the humans’. In the beginning, it was just us and Him. Angels and God. And then He created the humans. And He gave them more than He ever gave us Angels. Our’s was designed to be a life of servitude and worship – adoration. But He gave the humans more – He gave them a choice, free will. They can choose to ignore God, choose to acknowledge Him. All this time we’ve been down here, every day I felt the absence of the Divine presence. And it pained me… as I’m sure it must have pained you sometimes, even though you’d gloss over it with jokes. But we feel his absence, and why? Because of the way He made us – as servants. Had we been given free will, we could ignore the pain… like them, humans. Loki, don’t you get it? It’s the humans – it’s always the humans. They were given paradise; they threw it away, via Adam & Eve. They were given this planet; they destroyed it, via the curse that was placed upon this earth, as humanity continues to destroy Earth. They (humans) were favored best among all His (God) endeavors; and some of them (humans) don’t even believe He (God, even Lucifer/Satan) exists. Their ego-mania corroded Hell/Lake of Fire/Bottomless pit and made it dark and crimson. I asked you to lay down your sword years ago – why? Because I felt sorry for them (humans). And where did it get us? Thrown/cast out (of Heaven), like unworthy created being’s by His own hands’/Being.

    But again, I’m braced with confidence of God going to renew everything, but to do not, He knows He must clean house (Earth) for the second and final time: THE SKY EXPLODES into WHITE LIGHT. Everything is seared by the unholy glare, hotter than a thousand suns. The people ignite like match heads and burning, screaming silently, everything silent and over exposed. People’s flesh and clothing are burning, silently. The blast wave hits . . . a near-solid wall of compressed air followed dominated by constant high velocity SWIRLING HURRICANE (250) mph craylon gas, sand and winds. People, charcoal statues frozen in positions of play, explode into black leaves of ash and swirl away.

    Sound hits, with a blast of thunderous roar. People’s screams’ merges with the howl of the wind as the blast hits them, exploding the flesh from their bones. Like some tour of the ‘yet-to-come’ nuclear-age inferno, like also the fire scene in the film, “Independence Day”, leaving nothing but a remaining desolate, barren sand heap of a lifeless planet and landscape with the scent of age long creation’s burnt smoke in the air, being blown about by the lonely bitter wind breeze. Knowing the war of all wars is coming, it visiting me every time I close my eyes, feeling all hope recede for myself and for humanity

    Lost and alone, but a survivor – My whole life (displaced, misc) has been internal spiritual holy civil ‘souls’ war combat amidst humanity & ? = Pain, ETC can be controlled, you simple just disconnect it mentally, emotionally, physically, misc; like “Kansas’s” (Dust in the Wind) song, or “80’s rock band, “White Lion’s” (When the Children cry), even Phil Collins “Land of Confusion”.

    It’s always been because of humanity’s ‘i.f.w.’ – (ill free will usage) that has, justified and forced the hand (s) of Father God Jehovah to mandate and justify a) judgment day, and b) permitting the minimal allowance of power unto Lucifer/Satan, thus, it is ‘US’, humanity, beside’s initially (Adam/Eve) that has justified a) and b) (above) and exhibited, past and currently present, the world we all live in, thus, what’s yet to come? Answer: (2) life test period’s, (2) Judgment Day’s and (2) Lucifer/Satan disposition’s.

    More detailed: STOP, and THINK! VERY SERIOUSLY – BE amidst UNDERSTATED IMPERITIVE COMTEMPLATION!

    B.I.B.L.E. = ‘B.asic I.nstruction’s B.efore L.eaving E.arth’; but you = humanity no hear no, YES, Adam and Eve, can never comprehend = (understatement), what (they – both) set in motion. Perhaps Eve wouldn’t have been the first to sin, IF, Adam would have first/prior/beforehand, remembered AND told/relayed unto Eve, WHAT Father God told him – (Adam) to tell Eve – (re: not touching the tree of life). But no, guess that just slipped Adam’s mind, thus, both Adam and Eve are to blame. But humanity, despite continual, timeless, ill maintained ‘i.f.w.’ – (ill free will usage) amongst the world’s public known AND unknown decision power holder’s, separately noted that Father God just wanted to ‘create’ something, hence, it never was suppose to be like this, thus, Adam and Eve’s (downfall?) was not enough justification/validation to move/ persuade – Father God to scrap all and begin again anew, thus, decided that (?) done was going to be used unto His (Father God’s) agenda. Yet humanity (wonders cluelessly?) why Father God justifies a) Judgment Day and b) allowing/granting Lucifer/Satan = (the yet to come: wolf in sheep’s clothing as anti – Christ) – minimal power? BECAUSE, humanity (from Adam and Eve UNTO those ‘few’ in the very end, and that of course includes the current/present: (6,889,057,896), continually, exhibit’s ill maintained ‘i.f.w.’ – (ill free will usage), thus, forcing Father God’s hand, hence, Father God (ie: as the ultimate parent, (knowing what’s best for His creation (s), not our’s). We are mere breath mist energy creation’s dispensed out of father God’s very Being, that is all. And as such/understated result: one’s left hand represents Father God’s hand and one’s right hand represents humanity, hence, Father God justifies a) Judgment Day and b) allowing/granting Lucifer/Satan = (the yet to come: wolf in sheep’s clothing as anti – Christ) – minimal power. And again as such, humanity, continually, exhibiting ill maintained ‘i.f.w.’ – (ill free will usage), with hence the forced b) allowing/granting Lucifer/Satan minimal power c) giving Lucifer/Satan a timeless ill audience, just another something to ill laugh at (us!), and Lucifer/Satan ‘court – jester’s, regardless whether humanity ‘gets it’ or not, it is – what is. If a legion of angel’s is (10,000), then know, that there is, and as always been, a Heaven ‘life records’ room, with an angel = ‘life recorder’, assigned unto each and every individual breath mist energy human life record; and no, the life recorder angel has to involvement with whom’s life record they are assigned to = solely to record everything, as such of that individual breath mist energy human’s life while in the body on Earth; there ain’t no feather pen’s, misc just moving across the page (s) – ie: ‘Harry Potter’, of a individual breath mist energy human’s life record in the Heaven ‘life records’, where I’m sure it is off limit’s and zero allowed entry except for Father God/Jesus authorization personnel in such room, and that’s all the life recording angel’s do, is just record (per text above) = prior to and prepping for – re: Judgment Day. When one passes (dies on Earth), that individual breath mist energy – human’s life record is closed and sealed until Judgment Day, and that just life recording angel is either re – assisted unto another new (born) individual breath mist energy – human’s life record or perhaps some other task/duty assignment. And know this: reincarnation, misc past live’s etc crap is just that – crap. Father God can eternally dispense individual breath mist energy out of Himself and NEVER be less, thus, never He create/dispense a limit number and just rotate, misc over and over again. Ugh, sigh, whatever. Time does not exist, not in Heaven, nor on Earth/anywhere; what we human’s THINK we ill know about time is, essentially, nothing more than a measuring tool, so to speak that Father God (alone) utilizes to measure, misc His agenda, misc, and as such Jesus WILL be the FIRST to be told, of time/date of end = Father God: ‘My Son (JC/Jesus) it is time; NOT any human, thus, any human claiming such knowledge of time/date of end, again, is ill – c) giving Lucifer/Satan a timeless ill audience, just another something to ill laugh at (us!), and Lucifer/Satan ‘court – jester’s, regardless whether humanity ‘gets it’ or not, it is – what is. Father God’s Word, overall, opinionated, in a nutshell, so to speak: (2) life test period’s, (2) Judgment Day’s and (2) Lucifer/Satan disposition’s; We’re in the (1st of 2) life test period’s now/currently/presently – since Adam and Eve. The 2nd and final life test period is that of – Jesus/JC’s 1,000/yr – (10) century reign to begin there after the (1st of 2) Judgment Day’s. Then, yet to come, is the (1st of 2) Judgment Day’s, which the first – the exhibited scene, thereof, will be . . . . humanly incomprehensible; not even the more horror/sci fi movie/film, regardless of the creative technology, could ever depict that exhibited scene of the (1st of 2) Judgment Day’s, hence, it will be one’s own ‘life record’ that will (either) eternally convict or reward that individual breath mist energy, with no one to blame (if eternally convicted), not even their life recorder angel – assigned to their life record, solely themselves to blame (if eternally convicted). The 2nd and final Judgment Day will be there after Jesus/JC’s 1,000/yr – (10) century reign. Yes, ‘tomorrow is not promised unto no one’, but IS no excuse to BE clueless, misc/etc. Then of course will be the (1st of 2) Lucifer/Satan disposition’s – (1st will be the ‘bottomless pit’ and the 2nd and final will be the ‘lake of fire’).

    So imagine for a moment if you will, on your left (in general, not Earth/world politically) you have Adam and Eve, and all the way over on your right (in general, not Earth/world politically), there’s the blurred, faint, can’t really see them clearly – ‘few’ – those found by Jesus/JC, after the 2nd and final Judgment Day to be acceptable (to say the least) and ‘they’, the few, will ‘positively, misc reap, misc and ‘BE’, that which and HOW, Adam and Eve should have ALWAYS been and had – all around and amidst them, prior to, again: Eve wouldn’t have been the first to sin, IF, Adam would have first/prior/beforehand, remembered AND told/relayed unto Eve, WHAT Father God told him – (Adam) to tell Eve – (re: not touching the tree of life). But no, guess that just slipped Adam’s mind, thus, both Adam and Eve are to blame. So with Adam and Eve on the left and ‘the few’ on the right, stand back, ie: from a painting, misc, and see amidst/exhibited all this/that in the middle, between those (2) point’s, the left and right = human limited time line; and again, humanity (wonders cluelessly?) why Father God justifies a) Judgment Day and b) allowing/granting Lucifer/Satan = (the yet to come: wolf in sheep’s clothing as anti – Christ) – minimal power? BECAUSE, humanity (from Adam and Eve UNTO those ‘few’ in the very end, and that of course includes the current/present: (6,889,057,896), continually, exhibit’s ill maintained ‘i.f.w.’ – (ill free will usage), thus, forcing Father God’s hand, hence, Father God (ie: as the ultimate parent, (knowing what’s best for His creation (s), not our’s). We are mere breath mist energy creation’s dispensed out of Father God’s very Being, that is all. All will bow before Jesus/JC declaring He is King of King’s; even Lucifer/Satan will bow. If someone else was allowed to deal with and handle both of Lucifer/Satan’s dispositions’, 1 and 2, they’d have Lucifer/Satan trying to claw his way out, like a humanly incomprehensible terrified being – hence, that allowed one, would tear, not kill/terminate, Lucifer/Satan. BUT, truthfully speaking, that is not who Father God is, thus, as to why Father God has authorized Jesus/JC to a) be 1st to know of time/date of end, and b) handle both of Lucifer/Satan’s dispositions’, period. It’s been said, misc, that it is: desperate, imperative ‘holy retribution’ – NOW, that Earth needs amidst humanity, ie: like the exhibited visual/non – audio, way the Roman soldier’s ‘rolled’ onto the scene, back in the ancient day; they no play. Like the need for/of (?), a team to be put together, and with no answering to no human – anywhere, = ‘clean house’, and I don’t speak killing of Earth/world’s public known AND unknown decision power holder’s, but imprisonment and/or misc non – kill disposition option’s, unless, out of – if it comes to it/that – taking out, as a last final safety precaution. But here we all are: (6,889,057,896) = individual breath mist energy – human’s, still ill continually, misc/etc talk, talk and talk some more about, say, ‘gotta fix this/that’, meanwhile, nothing really happens enough, say, (if) to persuade, move and or ? – Father God to call of 2 of 2 Judgment Day’s, and 2nd and final life test period – Jesus/JC’s 1,000/yr – (10) century reign, regardless of Lucifer/Satan’s disposition’s. Adam and Eve’s (both) sin, misc was one, too many, hence: (2) life test period’s, (2) Judgment Day’s and (2) Lucifer/Satan disposition’s. Father God is love, misc this/that, but Father God also is – ain’t playing; humanity think Father God just wanting to ‘create’ something, He gonna just forget all, do away with Heaven’s life record’s room, etc and allow everyone to just come into Heaven? Uh . . . no, think again. Sigh . . . it is advisable unto humanity, no brainer/understatement, that though it be possibly opinionated (above text) that it be seriously contemplated on. That is all. God bless – in Jesus name current/present: (6,889,057,896) = individual breath mist energy – human’s.

  2. Homelessness will continue until / who is in authority here?

    People like me are not liked, misc, for what we have unfortunately or otherwise – have grasped, been able to see – whether from (above) or simply human understanding, re: the rippleling down from atop of those in power (ie: government, the elite’s, the mason’s, those known and/or unknown by the public) which have led to, say, ‘triggers’ (known by those in psychology, misc) the ruin, destruction, damage mental, emotional, spiritual and physical stress, trauma, distraughtness and broken spirited/lives, hence, ill – changing lives unto worse life circumstance’s, misc, be it: homeless and (low income consumer civilian’s); not all have issue’s with drug’s, alcohol, misc. some have (were) known to be involved with community, be involved with working on positive life changing project’s (ie: business plan, etc/misc), but due to unfortunately for example of living in building’s and properties whom are owned by owner’s whom seem to slip under (?), get away with unreported and etc exhibited code violation’s, and which some tenant’s have been wrongly – illegally evicted, and with no legal support, led them to (?), over whatever time period, their sense of identity, feel dehumanized, and ie: mental, emotional, spiritual and physical stress, trauma, distraughtness and broken spirited/lives. Ignored and shunned is any sense that perhaps (?) in power has no regard for human life. Shaun Donovan/”H.U.D.” < weak – and former head of “H.U.D.”, Jackson – got away with corruption and no repayment/restitution (and those he illegally gave money to) with “H.U.D.’s” federal budget fund’s. I, myself, have been caught amidst this mess of Section 8 – during (5)/yr period of: 08/2004 – 05/2010, which never fully realizing what I (was) amidst and involved in and with. Coming to a thought that this is what humanity has and ill – continues to create for itself. And still – to date, with past documented mismanagement, misc of ‘H.A.C.L.A.’/”LA Housing Authority”, to state one housing authority aside from the other’s amidst the nation, all under federal, hence, no true, judicial, ‘regulator’, zero – tolerant attitude from “H.U.D.”. And these so – called vast, massive number of financial philanthropy foundation’s, charitable, misc whom claim to only fund, say, for example, re: homelessness and housing related non-profit organization’s, misc/etc, thus, where and what are the true, honest, transparent documented result’s that a) homeless have been assisted with gained housing, that local homelessness and housing related non-profit organization’s, misc/etc haven’t squandered away the very fund’s they have been given, in good faith, to assist those whom very much would like to heal and recover, amidst gained reasonable housing and begin to try and positively start anew on a clean path to having a decent life again. Seems like no, it’s easier to turn away, deny, this, that. No, those in power responsible are NOT responsible for those, say, whom have unfortunately ‘take their own lives’, hence, committed suicide, but more so it’s can be looked at from the point of, what trigger’s were and still are present amidst humanity, as a whole, whom have suffered so much loss, despite, trying to go forth each day, though ‘tomorrow is not promised unto no one’, trying to still network with local resource’s and general public re: even a rental room for a couple hundred dollar’s a month, and perhaps in exchange for work done. There’s so much fear, paranoia, misc – as if, (?) in power secretly telling (?) other’s in more local or otherwise power, to keep (?) in check, to stay quiet and mind their place. You think I’m just making this up. To what, have coroner and morgue personnel, maybe even local law enforcement – waiting on the side line’s, like what, they way the Roman solder’s rolled on the scene back in biblical time’s. There is real fear, etc amongst the people. Yeah, there is a budget thing going on. What’s people suppose to do, rot in a homeless shelter. Sigh; ill rotating merry – go – round wheres nothing ever changes for those whom need help, exhibition: ‘to stay quiet and mind their place’. Excuse (???). God sees all, enough is enough. Why, why ‘people in power’ why? That what, anyone speaks up is a threat unto (?)’s agenda, etc/misc? Ugh, no word’s to express what has been so wrongly done unto so many, ill slumlord’s, code violation’s do on, corrupt inspection agencies, ETC!
