Subject: An upcoming FREE Street Medic training that your community might
want to attend
To: Jenny Ryan <tunabananas(a)gmail.com>
I've attached a flyer about the upcoming street medic training in San
Francisco put on by Frontline Wellness United. Please share the information
with folks at Omni Commons and activists you think may be interested.
Frontline is an organization that was born at Standing Rock. It is an
organization that provides healthcare and training to activists. Classes
and services are provided free of charge to the activist community.
Whomever had put a large green compost bin without a lid in front of CCL -
I moved it to the trash room for now.
We really don't want to encourage accumulating too much food debris near
our lab, and a compost bin without a lid is a giant no-no, because it
becomes a breeding ground for flies that contaminate our experiments...
For the fans of John Perry Barlow...

I have put Steve on the agenda again for this wednesdays meeting. I don't feel
like we came to a healthy conclusion at the last formal meeting when the issues
were discussed, and i haven't heard anything from the mediation that I was
expecting to happen.
I have heard that there have been other incidents, and as much as I would like
to forget about this whole issue and pretend like there is no problem, it turns
out that there are people who have considered (and some who likely have)
avoiding sudoroom and/or the Omni entirely because of Steve's behavior, and I
think we need to talk about it more and address the issue properly.
If there are people at this meeting to talk about the issues then great, if not
then maybe we'll just wait for the next incident.
Note: I am not trying to get people to align against a person or vilify anyone,
but i think it's necessary to address behaviors that are incompatible with the
environment and community we want to maintain.
Hello all, Happy Sunday,
There is a person a person in Sudoroom who is begrudgingly refusing to
leave. His name is Cheyenne, whom was working on a model airplane earlier
in the night.
I informed him that since there are no other members around, and that he
would have to leave. He has been drinking quite heavy 3 beers, and stated
about 10 into is refusal to leave that he has a friend "up stairs", which
is why he doesn't have to leave.
I then asked him if that person was here, and he gave me a blank stare. I
then informed him again you are able to be here only if members are
present, especially at night. I then informed him that If you have a
problem bring it up with the community, at that he said go get the
So I am writing this email. I have also woke this person up here already
twos before, and informed him each time this is not a place to sleep. I
think his intentions are good, but just need some guidance on how to use
the space more effectively.
Would somebody please, help moderate with him, as he thinks "I am just
fucking with him."
We are exiting now.

Hi friends & comrades:
Writing here to inform folks that the Temescal Business Improvement
District is currently conducting a campaign to transform the parcel where
the former Kasper's Hot Dogs stand is located into a public plaza, cutting
off the connection from Shattuck through to 47th St and Telegraph.
They are having open meetings re: the proposal on April 3rd, April 18th,
and a third date still TBD. I think it's important that longstanding and
potentially-impacted communities show up and represent!
Here's a link to their event page on Facebook:
