    Have the People of Redding California Had Enough ?

    Due to Overwhelming Response from this Article~

    Huge increase cited in Redding residents who can't pay power bills : News : Redding Record Searchlight

    A candle-light vigil to protest the City of Redding's practice of
    evicting families from their homes who cannot pay their utility bills on
    Tuesday, February 3rd at 7 p.m. in front of City Hall !


    Could this be the Spark that sets a Fire of Compassion
    in Redding and Shasta County ?? Just Look at the Comments !... Wow !

    "I just wanted to give everyone a progress report and to post the details of our upcoming planning meeting.

    I have so far received well over three hundred e-mailed commitments to participate in our candle-light vigil on February 3rd to protest the City's practice of evicting families from their homes for their inability to pay an REU bill.

    We have a number of people who are contacting media sources, attorneys, and civil rights organizations around the country. We also have skilled people to design a professional-looking leaflet for this event.

    WE WILL BE HOLDING A PLANNING MEETING IN CAULDWELL PARK ON SATURDAY, JANUARY 17th AT 1:00 IN THE AFTERNOON

    We will meet between Market Street and the Aquatic Center, and attendees will be asked to distribute leaflets to their friends, neighbors, neighborhood businesses, churches, civic clubs, or anything else with which they are involved. We will also work out the logistics of the vigil at that time.

    I will be getting in touch with everyone I have contact information for about this meeting (and it appears we will even be blessed with good weather!)

    If anyone has any questions, please contact me at reddinghomeless@att.net

    Thank you all so much for your interest in addressing this injustice!"

    What would the utility company do with all those trailer homes now?

    NEWS FLASH!!!

    "I APOLOGIZE FOR SHOUTING, BUT I'M HOPING THIS WILL COME TO EVERYONE'S ATTENTION. I JUST HAD LONG CONVERSATIONS WITH TWO PEOPLE WHO ARE IN POSITIONS TO KNOW, AND IT APPEARS THAT THE CITY IS PREPARING TO LAUNCH A MAJOR CAMPAIGN TO DIFUSE, DENIGRATE, AND MINIMIZE OUR EFFORT TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE IN AN ATTEMPT TO MAKE IT GO AWAY.

    AN ARTICLE (OR A SERIES OF ARTICLES) WILL APPEAR IN THE PAPER VERY SOON FILLED WITH PROPAGANDA INTENDED TO CONVINCE THE PUBLIC THAT THE CITY DOESN'T USE ANY GESTOPPO-TYPE TACTICS, AND TO DOWNPLAY THE NEGATIVE IMPACT OF THIS POLICY. WE WILL ALSO BE TREATED TO A NUMBER OF DISTORTIONS ABOUT WHAT HELP IS AVAILABLE TO PEOPLE IN DANGER OF EVICTION.

    IN FACT, CERTAIN CITY ADMINISTRATORS HAVE BEEN OVERHEARD TO SAY THAT, BY THE TIME THEY GET DONE, ONLY A HANDFUL OF PEOPLE WILL SHOW UP FOR THE FEBRUARY 3RD PROTEST."
