SC Metro Change - Again 07-02-20 09:12 S.S.

Although  the  Santa  Cruz  Metro  had  planned  to  increase  the  number  of  riders on  Metro  buses  starting  next  week,  they  have  changed  that  plan  in-part  because  of  the   continued  increase  in  the number  of  Covid-19  cases.    The  Bus  Drivers  Union,  and  the  Bus  Riders  Union  have  also  challenged  the  increase,  and  so  it  has  been  paused  for  now.   A  judge  is  expected  to  make  a  ruling  on  what  capacity of  ridership is  allowed  on  each  length  of  bus  in  the  Santa  Cruz  Metro  Fleet.

Friday Event 07-01-20 18:25 S.S.

This  Friday,  an  event  has  been  planned  that  is  scheduled  to  bring  several  groups  together. The  Black  Lives  Matter  group,  and  a  Latino  group.    The East Side & Seaside Solidarity March  will see one group set out at 10 a.m. from the Foods Co. parking lot in East Salinas, walking (or skating/biking/driving) to the new Salinas Police Department and then the District Attorney’s Office, before setting out for the soccer field at CSU Monterey Bay. Some of the demonstrators plan on walking, biking or roller skating the entire 13 miles from Salinas, but organizers are providing transportation for those who can’t make that journey on their own power. In Seaside, another group will set out at 1 p.m. from Greater Victory Temple, with a plan to arrive at the soccer field at 3 p.m.

There, organizers plan on creating altars to those who have died at the hands of law enforcement.
