This title and the post below comes directly from what seems to be a web site/action alert/blog/email list from Redwood Progressives or Richard Salzman. I don’t know, but I like it. This was posted today. I think we forget the importance of our First Amendment rights. These rights were circumscribed during the Occupy protests as emergency ordinances. I think it’s important to make sure they are returned to the rights guaranteed in that little parchment.
Next Saturday the ad hoc committee will be at the County Office of Education from 1pm to 4 pm. Their draft document will be available for public review at 1 pm.

The Office of Education is in Eureka at 901 Myrtle Ave.
WHEN: This Saturday, 1 PM to 5 PM
WHERE: County Office of Education: 901 Myrtle Avenue, Eureka
WHO: All friends of free speech, democracy, good governance are invited.
WHY: Because we love this county (and country).
Further information: There was an earlier post on Sohum Parlance during the summer at the request of Janelle Eggerd. This might provide some background.
Also, here is a quote from an email I just received from Janelle…
“But whether speaking or writing, it is very important to support removing the interim codes enacted by the “Urgency Ordinance.” Those codes need to be repealed.” – Janelle Eggerd 9/29/13
- PDF on the Comments on the Humboldt Human Rights Commissions August 8th Report. From Janelle Eggerd. This is a PDF file from Janelle on my Scribd account. Here are her comments about it …“I’ve attached what I submitted at the last HRC meeting based on the Aug 1 draft. Unfortunately everyone else had the Aug 30 draft. It has been an interesting process.”
- Humboldt County Human Rights Commission: From the web site: “The Commission was initially established to aid in the eradication of discrimination in the county specifically in cases of employment, public services and housing. SB 381 expanded the purpose to include discrimination based on race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, civic interest, or other factors.”
- Occupy Eureka. A Facebook page.
- Humboldt’s Independent Observer Program. I think they play an important role. I saw one member out at the ArkleyFest watching the arrests of the protesters along with other community members including myself.
