ONN – Anya Svanoe March On Phil Tagami’s House In Oakland Because She Thinks He’s Rich Is Stupid
Anya Svanoe, is planning a march on Oakland-based California Capital Investment Group President Phil Tagami’s home in Oakland, and purely because she thinks he’s rich. This is what was put out about an hour ago:
“5 P.M. today July 1 AS PART OF STATEWIDE DAY OF ACTION, LOW-INCOME EAST BAY RESIDENTS AND SUPPORTERS WILL HOLD A MARCH AND CAR CARAVAN TO DEVELOPER AND MILLIONAIRE PHIL TAGAMI’S HOUSE TO CALL ON THE WEALTHY HELP FINANCE RECOVERY FOR ALL.”
Considering that the average home value in Oakland is over $1 million, then why is Anya picking on one of 128,000 milionaires in Oakland? Doesn’t Anya Svanoe have better things to do?
I am sick and tired of people wasting time protesting someone they think is wealthy when they could be building companies that impact real change and employ people. Do something that makes the lives of people better. That protest will yield nothing but tired bodies and bruised feet and hurt feelings on top of all that. Who gains from such a situation? The answer is no one.
Who Is Anya Svanoe?
So, I wondered just who Anya Svanoe was, since the announcement did not tell me, and I found this: Anya Svanoe, Communications Director at Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment. The Californians for Community Empowerment on Linkedin says its “a new, independent, state-based nonprofit that was started by former members and staff of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), which will be closing many of its operations in California.”
Looking at the Linkedin listings of employees and we find that Carroll Fife is listed as Regional Director, Oakland. Carroll also recently worked to help Cat Brooks in her 2018 campaign to be Mayor of Oakland. Other names are John Eller, Alia Phelps, Helen Duffy, Jovana Fajardo, Estuardo Mazariegos, Lara Dmitruchina, Julien Ball and Ramon Saldivar.
The organization claims to want to help from “The bottom up” but provides no jobs other than organizing to, well, protest. The Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment is not doing anything to create jobs for people, or do job training that would land jobs, or have incubators to help start companies. None of that. So, who is it really helping? I my view, no one. Plus, it says it’s going after billionaires, but then if that’s the case, why is it picking on Phil Tagami, my friend for 32 years? Leave Phil alone. https://www.acceaction.org/about
And speaking of millionaires, according to its own non-profit records, the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment is a million-dollar company! It raised over $1 million in 2016, and over a half-million in 2017. Moreover, it’s the off-shoot of the disbanded Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), which had a giant series of finance disclosure problems that ultimately resulted in the stoppage of federal funds payments. One issue that still remains: it’s hard to tell who’s in charge or who’s really funding it.
So, basically, it looks like Anya Svanoe is not an Oaklander with an issue, but working for a multi-million-dollar non-profit company based in Los Angeles. A company that’s monetized protest. But, since it’s hard to see who’s financing it, it’s fair to assume someone out there that has an issue with Phil has tabbed the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment to do what in my view is its stupid dirty work.
UPDATE: an estimated 90 cars rolled past Phil’s house, honking horns. Meanwhile, The San Diego Union Tribune reported that Jose Lopez of The Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment called Phil Tagami “a billionaire” and in the same sentence with Elon Musk, in reporting its protest plans. When I shared that with Phil, we had a giant laugh. He then asked if I found the money. I told him I’m still looking for it.
Note from Zennie62Media and Oakland News Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
