Hey Tumblr family, friends & followers,
We’re arriving in the bay area tomorrow and we still don’t have sleeping arrangements for the first few days. It looks like we probably have some gaps filled in but we’ll be in the area from June 7-19th. Even one night of hosting would be greatly appreciated. We’ve taken to couchsurfing, among other websites, but it’s summer and so many couchsurfing hosts are booked full with requests, especially in a destination as popular as the bay area.
These are events that we’re likely going to in-between our interviews, so please join us if you’re interested. Write us & let us know what you’d like to meet up with us to attend and we’ll try & make it happen:
San Francisco/Oakland Events:
June 8: Free Farm Volunteer Gardening
June 8: Strange Bedfellows Opening reception 7 p.m.
June 9: Stories of Queer Diaspora 
June 9: Rally for Freedom of Expression in Iran 11 a.m. 
June 10: Trayvon Martin 
June 11: Anarchist solidarity rally 
June 11: Our Vanishing Civil Liberties 
June 13: A feminist indictment of rape in the military 
June 13: The attack on public transportation 
June 13: Justice for Alan Blueford BBQ/Rally 
June 14: Words of resistance, political poetry 
June 15: US War drive in Middle East 
June 16: Abir Kopty on Challenges to resistance in Palestine 
June 16: Occupy Oakland Foreclosure Defense Meeting 
June 19: Assata: Eyes on the Rainbow Screening/Teach In
June 20: Transgender & Queer Performance festival 
June 20: War on Whistleblowers screening 
PLEASE reblog if you don’t mind. It’s not ‘an emergency’ per se but there is definitely a sense of urgency as we still don’t know where we’re sleeping tomorrow evening. Posted on June 6th. Tumblr messages are fine but email is better: thepeoplesrec@gmail.com
There are two of us. Male/Female platonic if it makes a difference.

If you’ve followed us for a while, you know we’ve been traveling on and off over the last year, trying to document social movements in the U.S. & the swelling of the left, etc.
In June, we’ll be on the West Coast. We rely entirely on the generosity of people’s couches for sleeping circumstances. If you’re on the West Coast, want to hang, and think you can put us up for a few days, we’d sure appreciate it.
I’ve divided our time into slots cos I don’t want to over-burden any one couch-host-person. Although we’d really, really love to stay with cool people from Tumblr who have a little bit of time to do political/citizen-journalism stuff with us, we understand that that isn’t within everyone’s capacity, interest or comfort zone - so really, we just need a place to rest our heads at night - a couch is great but a floor works. Let us know if you can help us with one or more of the following dates please:
In Los Angeles June 1-7:
UPDATE: Housing is taken care of but if you’re still available to come along for interviews or show us around the city or just accompany us in case we get lost or whatever, that would be helpful & welcome too.

Please also send us recommended events, talks, people & organizations for interviews that would fall in-line with or would be close to (we can definitely re-work our schedule slightly) these dates.

Safe2Pee.org, a compiling site for safe, genderfree, and accessible bathrooms, appears to be down. You can still access the site and browse existing bathrooms, but you can’t search by location or add new sites; you receive a long “Fatal Error” message. This appears to have been ongoing since at least early last month, and it doesn’t appear that the San Francisco collective which runs the site has responded. 

Does anybody know if the SF-based Genderqueer Hackers / Bathroom Liberation Front is still active? If they are not, do you know how they can be contacted?

A march and rally was held to protest the closure of the Lakeview Elementary public school at the Oakland Unified School District on June 23, 2012. The Oakland Unified School District administration plans to close five schools while new charters are being opened in the district. The Oakland Education Association stated it’s support of the sit-in and a peoples school has been established.
