Save Santa Cruz to San Jose Transit

amtrak.jpgDo you ride the bus between Santa Cruz and San Jose? Your main option will be canceled -- "probably" as early as October, according to a Caltrans official.

Several agencies are cooperating to extend the Highway 17 Express bus to Downtown Santa Cruz (Metro Center) and add weekend service. Today, the Highway 17 Express just runs between San Jose and Scotts Valley, and there is no weekend service.

There is a public meeting on Friday, February 27th at 9:00 AM at Santa Cruz City Hall. Metro, the transit agency for our county, can approve or reject the plan.

Once again, we will lose the main daily service between Santa Cruz and San Jose if the plan doesn't pass.

The Metro Riders Union / La Unión de Los Pasajeros de Metro

Update: Metro approved the integration of the Highway 17 Express and the Amtrak bus. The Highway 17 Express will be extended from Scotts Valley to the Metro Center in downtown Santa Cruz, and will operate 7 days a week.

While Dean Conned Anti War Vote Party Bosses Laughed

Now that the Democratic party bosses have effectively driven the anti-war vote into the ground with more than a little help from the corporate media that gave Governor Dean's campaign the red carpet treatment up until mid December while at the same time purposely ignoring Congressman Dennis Kucinich's campaign Governor Dean's campaign now looks more like a very effective con job

Leap Day 2004 - Take Back Santa Cruz!

This year, the month of February has an extra day - Leap Day, Sunday the 29th. This unclaimed, extra day allows a window for us to jump out of the runaway train of modern society. Let this day be a blank canvas, which we can transform into anything our hearts and minds desire for the world we most want to live in. Let us tap into our own wild, fearless creativity to turn the everyday grind of war, capitalism and inequality into a new society based on mutual aid, cooperation, freedom and love. In short, let us use Leap Day as a no-holds-barred day of action to break out of the mold we as activists have been stuck in for far too long.

The call for a day of action on Leap Day is completely open-ended, with nothing off-limits in terms of tactics, goals, or strategies. Some of us have already begun planning a party of sorts, which will take place on Leap Day and will feature creative resistance, anarchist fun and games, and much more. And everyone who wishes Santa Cruz and our society as a whole to become greater, fairer, more equal and free is invited. Bring yourself, any costumes, toys, music, art, and anything else that helps you create the new world within the dying shell of this one.

Converge at 1 PM on Sunday (2/29) at San Lorenzo Park
