ONN – Death of Guy Mike Lee: A Oakland, Berkeley Bay Area Homeless Icon by Derrick Soo
You may or may not know the name Guy Mike Lee. Since the 70’s, Mike has fought for the Street Rights of our Unhoused in the Bay Area. He was one of the individuals that “Protested” to SAVE Berkeley’s People’s Park from closure. Mike was instrumental in the saving of the Berkeley Post Office. In Oakland, Mike sat as a proud member of HAWG (Homeless Advocacy Work Group) which establishes “Policy” on how the City of Oakland treated/abused our Homeless population. Mike fought for “Self-Governed” Encampments leading to Independence and Self Representation to local Governments.
Mike Lee was my mentor of Street Justice, Housing Solutions, Dignity and fairness. 77th Ave Rangers Tent City came into prominence through Mike and his VISION for others to follow. We opened our Community to the World. And the World visited us on 77th Ave. With Rangers online presence, Rangers Community became known Worldwide, with visitors from around the World.
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.
