Community Organizers Targeted by Federal Grand Jury in San Diego

As of today at least nine (9) community organizers from throughout San Diego and other parts of California have been subpoenaed to appear before a federal grand jury. Presumably, the subpoenas are in relation to a federal investigation of the 2003 burning of a La Jolla apartment complex, which the Earth Liberation Front claimed responsibility for, and which the FBI has admittedly little evidence or credible leads.

Photos and Notes - PVUSD Supports Student Privacy

girls-1.jpg6/29/05 Watsonville, CA - They waited for more than two and a half hours. The last item on the agenda. But finally they were able to speak. One by one, members of the Pajaro Valley community rose and shared their stories with the school district officials.

This opt-out, they claimed, needed to be put on the mandatory emergency card, because it is the only way to ensure that their right to privacy will not be overlooked.

Avoiding anti-Privacy board members' attempts to dillute and derail this important proposal, school board allies pushed the changes through with a 4-3 vote. This marks an important moment in PVUSD's recent history - showing that at least a majority of the school board members will take proactive steps to ensure the privacy of their students and families.
