Mario Woods Reflection

On December 2, 2015 a young 26 year old African American named Mario Woods was shot dead by police in the Bay view district. It was a tragic day for the young man's family and community, but one thing I want to let you readers know is that this has been happening non stop all over the world.

Mario Woods Vigil

Like many young men of color in America, Mario Woods was a young African American man who was fatally shot by the police. He was a young man who had many friends and family who loved him. He was murdered on December 2nd 2015 because the police thought he had a knife in his hand.

Students March to City Hall for Mario Woods

This story all started on December 2, 2015. A man named Mario Woods was killed at the age of 26. He was killed in a cold blooded murder. They said that Woods had a weapon in his hand but really he did not. So that is why Deecolonize Academy went to the march down in the Mission in San Francisco, a place that is ugly and beautiful all in the same.

The Planning Commission- the Spookiest Place Where all the monsters & Devil-opers hide

The planning commission has the power to make decisions,”said Juana, an organizer at a huge protest held in September against more Monsters in the Mission and Beasts on Bryant streets

Stop Selling out SOMA!

It was a hot day and me and Deecolonize Academy went to a rally at City Hall. It was about the Beast on Bryant st.,RAD,Super-sizing SOMA and the Monster in the Mission. My class mates were all interviewing different leaders in all of these struggles.

THE CITY TAKES CITY HALL

I and my Deecolonize Academy and POOR Magazine family went to a protest at City Hall, the protest was about gentrification, housing, and displacement.

An example of housing displacement is the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD). RAD is impacting low income families who live in public housing in San Francisco and all over the nation, because RAD is a move to privatize all the public housing buildings in the United States.

The RAD program was created by the San Francisco Housing Authority and non profit organizations.

Home is Where the Heart Is

I was only two years old when I came to the United States from New Zealand. At that time I had no idea what was happening or where we were going. I just knew we were suppose to be going somewhere that will change our lives for the best.

I don’t remember much of how I came here, I just knew that one day I’m in my homeland and the next I'm in a strange place that I’ve never been before.

From Honduras To America

I am Heidy. I come from a Honduran family. Honduras is in Central America I was born outside of the U.S. therefore im an “illegal alien” as they kindly put it in the United States. I was brought here when I was 3 years old. The root cause for leaving Honduras was because of violence. I don’t really remember how my journey here was. I’m sure it wasn’t in a first class airplane.
