Here is an article about that from the San Jose Mercury News.  May the wolves thrive!  May humans make space for them!http://www.mercurynews.com/san-mateo-county-times/ci_28673591/conservation-breakthrough-wolf-pack-discovered-northern-california

honoring the ocean & river (& how they are not)

last monday i was walking on the train trestle over the san lorenzo river where it meets the ocean.  i passed by signs that notified folks to not damage the sandbar that developed at the river mouth as that is a habitat for fish right now...and that people could be fined if they do disrupt the sandbar that is keeping the river water pooled to create a lagoon for the fish.  beyond the sign, on the sand, i see massive machinery that is there to do what the sign cautions against, which is to disturb the sandbar and drain part of the lagoon. 

you can read more about the damage being done in the article below.  of course that is not the perspective taken in the article.  this work is being justified because of impacts on people...people who have businesses and live on a flood plain...and the boardwalk most significantly impacted (and in the past boardwalk folks have done this work without permits, which caused them some inconvenience, and it seems that now they are more savvy about it and more recently have gotten city approval to have this destructive work done).

i want to live in a world (and live my life) in a way that respects other lives/processes that are not human as well, even when that means inconveniencing myself/ourselves, especially when what is happening is the result of human choices that are out of balance with the eco-systems of which we are a part (for instance, if one builds on a flood plain, sometimes it will flood).  right now choices are being made to prioritize the needs of certain people over all else, and this is in part a facet of how life here is organized under capitalism.  other people suffer the consequence of this way of life (and death), and other beings, animals and plants, the waters and earth do as well.  and damage done to the earth (and water and air) is also damage done to ourselves, as this planet is our home, and the home of those that will come after us...a home we also share with others.

i want to respect and honor the river and ocean and to put that into practice.  i am learning what that means, how to further do that.  i post for you-all to share my thoughts on this, to let you-all know (if you didn't already) what is happening to the river/beach/ocean...so i and we can engage with that.  this could look many different ways, both individually and collectively. let us share with each other, wherever we are, our thoughts/feelings/possibility for action, against these adversities and in defense of that which we care about...be it for other humans...be it for other aspects of life-and-being around us.

here is a link to a skewed article from the santa cruz sentinel (the local mainstream newspaper) about the damage done on the beach.  read for the information and read critically as it's business-as-usual perspective is rank.

and as SubRosa is many things, including a place to share information and news, here is a bit about two folks that need support right now.

from http://supportnicoleandjoseph.com/ "On July 24th, 2015, Nicole Kissane and Joseph Buddenburg were arrested and federally indicted for alleged Conspiracy to Violate the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act—Title 18, U.S.C., Section 43 (a) (1), (2) (c) and (b) (3) (A). A federal grand jury indictment alleges that Nicole and Joseph conspired to "travel in interstate and foreign commerce for the purpose of causing physical disruption to the functioning of animal enterprises, to intentionally damage and cause the loss of real and personal property, including, but not limited to, animals and records used by the animal enterprises, and caused economic damage in an amount exceeding $100, 000″ by allegedly releasing thousands of animals from fur farms and destroying breeding records in Idaho, Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. The indictment also alleges that they caused economic damage to various retail and distribution businesses and individuals associated with the fur industry."

also from http://supportnicoleandjoseph.com/  "Please contribute to Nicole and Joseph's general support fund while they are under indictment. Your solidarity is essential in making sure that Nicole and Joseph have strong support and the reassurance that they have a community to take care of them through this case."

Much more information is available at the support website http://supportnicoleandjoseph.com/

https://santacruz11.wordpress.com/And news from around town.  The remaining four folks of the Santa Cruz Eleven had court yesterday.  The four took a "deal," which seems like an inappropriate word for what actually took place.  It would have been more appropriate if all of the charges would have been dropped and perhaps the four compensated for the anguish of having this process drag out for so many years.  The four folks still have restitution to pay, so this isn't over yet.   I encourage us all to offer our support to these four people and others ensnared by the legal system.  More information and wonderful reflections at https://santacruz11.wordpress.com/
