On Friday, August 7th, after discussion amongst participants, Defend Knowland Park took its first direct action against the fencing construction in hopes that people would do the same on a regular basis.  Chain Link Fencing and Supply Inc. has started to construct a mile-long perimeter fence around the proposed development. We can find no  approved building permit for this construction so this fence may be illegal.  No permit is posted on-site and there has been no response about the fencing from the City building permit staff. Therefore, it is within our “legal” right to take direct action  and stop fencing from going up .

Please Join us, Monday – August 17th at Knowland Park to demand their permit to work or if you cannot make it call and email their office repeatedly to jam their lines and respectfully demand information regarding their Work Permit for fencing construction at Knowland Park.

Monday, August 17th, 2015 at 11 AM: Knowland Park entrance at the end of Edgemont way near Edgemont and Malcolm Avenues in Oakland, California.
