Dear Oakland City Council,
We see what you are doing. Holding on to your little slices of power and control while there is such an air of movement, change surrounding us all. You are holding on so tight, playing these political games. Now, my question remains do you consciously see the crooked things you do maintain your power and control, or has the lie become so loud in your head you can’t hear anything else? Either way, now is an appropriate time to examine our egos. What drives us? The interests of the people, or self-serving ones?
Old systems are crumbing and new ones arising. Why do you want to hold on to the old, repressive, and violent one? It could be so much better.
Examine your relationship to power and control. Pay attention to that little voice that tells you something is wrong. I am appealing to your conscience.
We are rising up. Join us. (Although when you do just be aware we might be a bit apprehensive at first, not so trusting, but considering your track record…Have compassion for us. We’ll come around.) We can see truth.
