The next experiment for Wiki World Order!..
While I want to spend many months of future years on an organic community farm, I also hope to travel more while still becoming more self-sustainable. I plan to build a trailer I can tow with a bicycle, can give me all the electricity I need, and that I can sleep in if I choose…aka portable living off the grid.
Below, I have listed out my documented plans of some general features, details on solar setup, and some illustrated mock-ups. ANY constructive feedback and advice on any aspect of these plans would be greatly appreciated (especially electrical/solar experience), as I of course haven’t built something quite like this before. Thank you so much!
Overall loaded trailer weight will likely be 300-400 pounds, and would like to occasionally tow a hop-on or two. So I will definitely need to connect brakes to the trailer tires. I will probably end up adding an optional electric motor to the front tire of the bicycle (likely recumbent) for visits to Colorado, and hopefully further around the Americas later if I master the lifestyle before growing crazy strong legs.
The solar power setup needs to be able to run a two laptops, and two mobile phones almost 24/7 if needed it. I’ll need a small collection of LED lights for any night biking, and likely daytime use of a hot plate. Would occasionally (~a night or two a week) like to watch movies or VJ sets with a projector and some reasonably powered sound. Might add a web cam or two for live stream documentation and ‘security’ while on the slow solo road.
With free workshop space and help from a friend, I hope to be able to build my whole neo-hippie travel home for less than three or four grand. It will need to be painted fun too.
Current Solar Power Plans
Below are the ~ideal components and price points I have found online that I think would both meet my power needs and actually function properly together. These components weigh about 115 lbs, and cost at least about $1,400. I am having trouble finding a local place to buy two solar panels…at all in the San Francisco area, so advice on this front would also be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
On June 24th, 2012 David Tat Chow and those of us renting rooms on Full Circle Farm attempted to collect the property we still had on the farm during the time schedule with Anthony Vasquez, but cancelled at the last minute. This was after 12 days without being able to arrange an appointment, and only three days left to legally collect our property without consequences. Police arrived, informed us we were trespassing, but then allowed us to collect our property for ten more minutes. Given that participants of Occupy Sacramento (and me, creator of Wiki World Order) have been helping occupy this farm and were involved with this incident, we documented it far better than the police.
I truly cherished my months living and participating on Full Circle Farm, and I can’t wait to be back on a farm in a similar situation, growing organic, hopefully non-GMO fruits, veggies, and medicines. I did lose roughly two thirds of my material possessions in the fire, but it was all still worth it. I recommend everyone try living on a farm for some amount of time, as we must become far closer to the food we eat. It’s also much less risky when not trying to Occupy land being taken by US Bank and friends. Thank you so much for these experiences, Tat, and I’m so sorry for your losses. Much Love!
John Reynolds and Morgan Lesko record our first discussion really getting to know each others’ perspectives. This was a casual late night chat on July 25, 2012, but perhaps you’ll find value in this too.
Since the city of Philadelphia has relatively lax laws for sleeping in the sidewalks, dozens of Occupiers would hold “Sleepful Protests” each night in front of different banks. The general idea was to raise awareness about the criminal big banks, foreclosures, and the homeless. It was my first time ever sleeping on city sidewalks, but surrounded by my beautiful brothers and sisters it felt wonderful. <3
Here is an Immediate Need for Justice Reform Action
Alert Regarding — 7650 RESERVOIR ROAD SACRAMENTO CA. 95837-9313 — Warning!
by ~ Rev. A. Odeye
My name is: Rev Ashiya Odeye.
I am a Board member of the Sacramento chapter of the ACLU. I am Executive Director of the Justice Reform Coalition (JRC), a civil rights advocacy and citizens over site organization headquartered in Sacramento, California. The JRC was founded in 2005. I am Reverend Director of the Order of Olufunmi since 1976 I am also acting as a Private Attorney General for our organization and person of interest and intervener in this matter.
For over 37 years the Full Circle Farm (7650 Reservoir Road) has been home to the Chow family and a spiritual center for many people. The Farm’s Founder wanted it so. In his own words: “We the family of the Full Circle Farm have been growers and producers of an alternative to commercial food and culture in the true organic tradition…We care about the quality of life and want to see more than just sugar beets growing on farms.” His son David “Tat” Chow has kept this tradition.
The Farm is a 3.5 acre grove on Reservoir Road, off of Garden Highway, near the airport in Sacramento, California. The Farm sits next to and protects one of the last little natural creek areas in Sacramento County. It also sits next to an area of importance to the local Native American community’s history. It has been under constant attack because greedy people want the land. This includes the Airport authorities and the golf course next door.
David Chow vs U.S. Bank (34-2010-0091102), involves U.S. Bank, American Home Mortgage Service, Inc (AHMSI), BNC, and others, who colluded to commit fraud by filling fraudulent loan documents. Without the consent of the owner and trustee of the property, David Chow, they granted a loan to David’s ex a loan in one week, using the Farm property as collateral. His ex had no standing or permission to use the property for collateral. She then divorced Mr. Chow after using the money to rebuild her business. In the beginning when Mr. Chow tried to return the funds, he couldn’t because AHMSI said he was not on the note, he was not the borrower and they refused to speak with him.
Mr. Chow was forced to make payments on a loan he did not want or need. AHMSI engaged in criminal practices such as sending payments to a “suspense account” instead of applying those payments to the loan account, and refusing to deal with the owner-trustee because he “isn’t the borrower”, even though his property was being used as collateral for a loan he did not authorize or sign for. Then filing an illegal foreclosure on the property that was at the time one and a half months over paid. Then getting a relief from stay by influencing Mr. Chow’s bankruptcy attorney to not inform Mr. Chow of an exparte’ hearing and then not appear herself, which allowed U.S. Bank to get to get a default judgment, relief from stay. Robert Jackson and Associates was U.S. Bank’s second attorney on this matter and were the one’s who filed the unlawful detainer actions and had Rosenberg and link handle the case locally. You will find these law firms’ names on countless foreclosure and evictions by U.S. Bank and others.
Mr. Chow, In Pro Se, filled a civil suit and injunction for fraud against U.S. Bank, which they never responded to. Instead they filed an unlawful detainer actions against Mr. Chow. They were heard illegally in unlawful detainer court. Since there were allegations of fraud and other misconduct , and the unlawful detainer court is a limited scope court, according to its own rules, the cases should not have been heard there. Because of the limited scope of this Court the true issues at hand could not be addressed there and judgment was given to U.S. Bank even though the Court was informed of the civil suit filed by Mr. Chow which is still pending.
In January of 2012 U.S. Bank threatened the Farm with another eviction attempt. This eviction was from an unlawful detainer action filed by U.S. Bank attorney Robert Jackson and Associates who are known legal scoundrels. It appears they did multiple UD filings on the same matter using the new electronic filing system only for attorneys doing UD’s and didn’t serve us one of them. This is double jeopardy and is illegal. This is another area where the Court failed its due diligence.
12UD00600, filed on 1/19/12, is the one we were served, which we responded to on 2/8/12 and they never moved forward on. But they had also filed UD1200055 earlier on 1/3/12 , which we were not served. This is the one they filed and got their default on, on 2/21/12. In order to hide this crime, someone in the Sheriff’s Department had scheduled the eviction for 6am that following Sunday. Can you believe that. We filed an injunction, and when we went to serve the Sheriff, we were told that the Sheriff had pulled the eviction because the “writ was improper”. The injunction was later denied with leave to refile, because we didn’t have all the paperwork we needed to file with it. We plan to re-file the injunction.
U.S. Bank refiled the writ in March and rescheduled the eviction. But Mr. Chow filed a chapter 7 which stayed the eviction. The stay was lifted do to failure to file one document timely. This was purely an over sight on our part. We had served a copy of the injunction on the Bank’s attorneys, and we received a letter that they were no longer the proper place to serve the Bank.
A few weeks later a man, Anthony Vasquez, came by the Farm to say he had purchased the Farm from U.S. Bank for $70,000. Mr. Chow told him that the property was in litigation and had a lis pendence on it. Anthony said he had not been told this by the Bank, only that the property was occupied. He then insisted that he had a “clear” title to the property. He was told that he couldn’t have a clear title under the circumstances because the Bank did not own the property. Mr. Chow asked him to show him the paperwork he had and he said he would. Their paper work consist of robo-doc paperwork generated by out of state entities already charged with fraud.
Chicago Title issued a bogus “clean title” report which was filed with the County Recorder and a title was issued to Vasquez. This is part of the paperwork used to get Mr Chow evicted.
Vasquez was part of a dispensary closed down under suspicion of money laundering .
Vasquez used drug money to purchase the property.
Since the eviction the 11 residents of the Farm have not been allowed to get their property.
They have been threatened verbally and at gun and knife point.
Mr. Chow was assaulted by thugs at the Farm while trying to retrieve his property. They threatened his girlfriend who had just had a miscarriage the day after their eviction.
One of Vasquez’s cronies tried to hire some people to “rough up” Mr. Chow. Fortunately some of the folks asked were friends of Mr. Chow’s so it didn’t happen.
Vasquez and his cronies have ripped out old growth trees and many of the amenities which made the Farm what it was.
Now they have committed arson and burned down the main house on the property. The fire is under investigation now.
There is still a lis pendence on the property.
The State Attorney General’s office has been notified about this situation and the Sacramento District Attorney Real
Estate fraud division is being brought in.
The civil suit mentioned above is being amended to include Mr. Vasquez
DO YOU REALLY WANT TO BUY INTO THIS MESS?
We ask you not to support this criminal conspiracy and please tell everyone.
On June 13th, Full Circle Farm was evicted from it’s illegal foreclosure fight and organic community garden. The rightful owner, David “Tat” Chow, and his roommates are now homeless and were hoping for the best from a meeting called with the Sacramento County Recorder on June 22nd. For more background on our situation, please check out SaveFullCircleFarm.org.
Mr. Vasquez and crew, thank you for not letting most of our plants and animals die. But please stop ripping up and remodeling the farm like you’ve lived there your whole life. Looks like you’ve made your choices, have fun being on the wrong side of our lawsuit against U.S. Bank.
Full Circle Farm is a beautiful ~3 acre property in north Sacramento OWNED by David “Tat” Chow where he has lived nearly his whole life. A community garden with budding fruits and veggies is/was thriving with several farm animals and hard-working and passionate people.
Despite the ongoing legal debate on the property’s ownership, U.S. Bank auctioned the property to Anthony Vasquez (aka Richard Vasquez) for the giveaway price of $85,000 (including taxes and fees). Upon visiting the farm, he explained to me that he just intended to flip the property for a profit…clearly a noble cause compared to our occupied community garden. Vasquez could have joined Tat’s lawsuit against U.S. Bank, but chose not to. Tat offered Vasquez $120,000 — then $150,000 — so he could buy the property again, but those offers were denied. Vasquez has already listed the property hoping for a quick sale asking $300,000 and describing “an opportunity to steal a lot”.
Didn’t you hear about the rEVOLution? That kind of greed is so 20th century.
Tat’s legal proceedings continue, which he has been fighting Pro Se (without a real lawyer) with the help of the Justice Reform Coalition. But Mr. Vasquez was able to get the Sheriff’s department to evict Tat and the rest of us on June 13th without advance notice.
Three months ago, I moved to Full Circle Farm when some participants of Occupy Sacramento were joining to help prevent the illegal foreclosure of Tat’s land, and grow organic (hopefully non-GMO) fruits and vegetables. The simple agricultural act is political both in helping feed ourselves healthy food and helping feed to those less fortunate than us living on the street. Some of our other roommates include a retired Vietnam veteran and an anti-war veteran of the Iraq War (2003).
Dear Mr. Vasquez and crew, please join us in our lawsuit against US Bank or give the property back to Tat…instead of trying to remove our community from this land. At least let us feed and water the animals and plants we care for on the farm. We all want and expect to move back into Full Circle Farm.
ADVENTURE CAT: It’s at the Westfields Marriot by Dulles Airport in Chantilly, Virginia. If my friend Morgan still lived in Washington DC, he would be there in half a heartbeat — half an hour actually — and beg everyone he knows in the area to PLEASE check it out.
SIBLING CATS: Sooo, why does this matter?..powerful people meet all the time.
ADVENTURE CAT: They sure do, but usually meetings this big are much more public and universally covered for at least a few news cycles. Think about how much media attention NATO summits get…or the Oscars, or NFL Drafts.
SIBLING CATS: OH yea! Who won the Oscars?
ADVENTURE CAT: WHO CARES?! But guess who attended the Bilderberg Conference last year?… (show list of attendees)
SIBLING CATS: WOW! What a collection of some of the biggest public players in the world.
ADVENTURE CAT: No joke! Talk about the 1%…Bilderberg is the 0.00000002%.
SIBLING CATS: Why haven’t we heard of this before?!
ADVENTURE CAT: Participants agree to keep details spoken at the meetings from the public, so these world leaders can speak more frankly. So the mainstream media has hardly ever mentioned it until the past few years with knowledge spreading across the internet.
SIBLING CATS: So if these meetings are behind closed doors, and invite-only, why are you going?
ADVENTURE CAT: Top politicians and businessmen are discussing plans for our world without transparency and therefore accountability. If they have our collective best interest in mind, what do they have to hide?…or why can’t they speak honestly to us like adults?
SIBLING CATS: Good points.
MOMMA CAT: That’s just a silly conspiracy theory.
ADVENTURE CAT: You’re a conspiracy theory.
Actually, the phrase “conspiracy theory” is mostly just used to get most people to disregard the alternative narrative being discussed. Where conspire is defined as ‘to act in harmony toward a common end,’ this is more conspiracy fact.
SIBLING CATS: Yea! And the Bilderberg Group seems to be the world’s most public steering committee. The attendees can both help manifest the plans toward their common ends, as well as take advantage of knowing what this powerful crowd hopes will happen in the next year.
ADVENTURE CAT: That sure does seems to be the case, and other organizations like the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission spend more of the year hashing out more concrete policy details, plans, and drafting legislation.
MOMMA CAT: What if you’re put on some terrorist watch list or NDAA-ed out of your relative freedom.
ADVENTURE CAT: This is no time to let such fears beat us, mom. If we don’t have at least a voice, we don’t have anything. And there is WAY too much going on ‘in our name’ to be passive. Anyone with half a whisker of my curiousity should seriously check it out.
On the morning of March 21, a few members of Occupy Sacramento setup the information table along with two tents. After about two hours, a friendly neighborhood police officer asked us to take down the tents even though they were just props (and propping up signs).
Even though Occupy Sacramento had at least several tents setup throughout the day for the first couple of months, we did not push it much and did not think the citation and court date(s) were worth it this time.
SACRAMENTO – US Bank – which Monday announced it would be leaving UC Davis because of protests by Occupy – is the target again Tuesday….this time in Sacramento as Occupy supports the fight to save a local farm from foreclosure and eviction.
A news conference is set for 1:15 p.m. TUESDAY (3/30/12) in front of the courthouse (800 9th St.). The hearing to get an injunction preventing the eviction begins at 1:45 p.m. in Dept. 54.
Late last week – as Occupy Sacramento was preparing to occupy the land to prevent eviction – the Sheriff’s Dept. announced it would not do an eviction as it previously had said it would, according to the Rev. Ashiya Odeye, a spokesperson for the Justice Reform Coalition.
Odeye said US Bank does not have “recognized title to the property and won’t be able to prove they have any standing in Court. In addition they have now committed fraud on the Court with multiple case filings.”
The property has been the home to a Sacramento area family for nearly 40 years, and a spiritual center for many others, according to Odeye. He called US Bank a “corporate criminal.”
He said “It is time to bring attention to the crimes the banks and their servicers are committing . All across the country people are taking the opportunity to stand against the corporate gangsters that have ripped the hearts out of our communities, and caused a near meltdown of our economy and the quality of our lifestyles.”
