Bay Area residents held vigils across the region Sunday to protest the weekend’s violent white-supremacy rallies in Virginia that led to the death of a social-justice activist and murder charges against the man who drove his car into her.“We need to send a louder message of love than the prevailing narrative of hate and discrimination,” said Renata Moreira, 41, of Oakland, executive director of Our Family Coalition, a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender family group.Yet as speaker after speaker quoted Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela, sang a few songs in Hebrew or joked about “Trump Traumatic Stress Disorder,” the crowd of hundreds sat rapt and remained peaceful well into the night.Numerous other antiracism gatherings were scheduled throughout the day in Novato, San Anselmo, San Rafael, Point Reyes Station, Santa Rosa, Petaluma, Mill Valley, Albany, El Cerrito, Castro Valley, Mountain View and La Honda, many of them organized by Indivisible, a progressive political group.[...] many participants yelled that they were not there to bash the ACLU, only to condemn racism and mourn the death of Heather Heyer, who was struck and killed in Charlottesville when a suspected neo-Nazi plowed his car into a group of counterprotesters.On Saturday night, a rally that drew some 450 protesters in downtown Oakland temporarily shut down a portion of Interstate 580, but police reported no arrests, vandalism or injuries.

- Fix New York's government? Some say key is new constitution
By MARY ESCH, Associated Press - Sunday Aug 6, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Corruption and a rigged political system are battle cries of both sides in a debate over whether New Yorkers should vote this fall to rewrite the state constitution.Advocates of a "yes" vote say a constitutional convention is the only way to fix dysfunction, corruption and inefficiency in government and throw the bums out of Albany.Environmental groups fear a convention could open the door to delete or weaken protections for clean air and water, healthy forests and the 6-million-acre (2.4-million hectare) Adirondack Park.The real money involved in this is the labor unions that are trying to block a convention because they have great sway with this government and don't want it to change, said Gerald Benjamin, a political science professor and co-editor of a new book, New York's Broken Constitution:Right-to-Life and Planned Parenthood; the Conservative Party and left-leaning Working Families Party; LGBT Network and New York State Rifle and Pistol Association.Benjamin said a convention is the only way to fix problems with administration of elections, campaign finance, the structure of the court system and the Legislature, which he believes would be more effective with one house instead of two.

ALBANY, N.Y.
