Marco Gonzalez is a name synonymous with integrity and boldness in San Diego. He is not afraid to speak truth to City Mayors, fight billion dollar projects, or call out activists and environmentalists who are not able to incorporate a more inclusive social vision into their perspectives. Gonzalez stands firmly for environmental justice, which surpasses environmentalism in breadth and scope. The difference […]

Three months ago, I started a new job. The physical toll on my body is great and there is little, to no time, for anything other than sleeping when I return home after the typical 12 hour long work days. I bury myself in my bedding when I return from work, hiding my eyes from […]

Choose, they say. Choose between Option A, B, or C for projects 1, 2, 3, 4, 5… No option provided for “None of the Above,” just a small space at the end of a survey or 3 minutes at a public meeting for comments. Forced to choose options in order to engage the mandated “public hearing […]

Carlsbad, Some Simple Talking Points

Written by , Posted in environment, Politics

Democracy in Carlsbad

A strange atmosphere in Carlsbad, where Malls are not Malls (they are “Lifestyle Shopping Experiences”), where outside developers attempt to change zoning that “can only be changed by the people” through the City Council, and where simple truths are casually betrayed… but no one will notice… surely… (This clip is from the November 17th, 2015 […]
