On Point: Here come the drums
In place of our regularly scheduled post (sorry – still working on it), I’ll drop a quick note to let you know that the folks behind the newly organized Protect the Point have organized a protest march against the pending Point ballot initiative at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, June 13.
The march starts at City Hall, 2263 Santa Clara Avenue, and concludes at Jackson Park, at San Jose and Park Avenue.
They’ve got speakers and live music, according to the Evite (looks like 22 of the 138 folks they’ve invited to the march will definitely be there as of Thursday night).
Signatures for the proposed ballot initiative are due in to the City Clerk by June 15.
While I’m on it, I think I promised a while back I’d try to figure out who the folks are behind Save Our Future Alameda, who sent us this pro-Point development video. I e-mailed them a few weeks ago looking for more information and got this response:
Thanks for your interest, as an anonymous group we don’t read our mail very often. Let us know what info you need and we’ll try and provide it.
It’s been eight days since I asked them for a name and I haven’t heard back.
