Day after day night after night weeks, turning into months of protests, and then we've seen various leaders come and go, including City Council member Shama so want directing hundreds of people into city Hall. This moment, rallying cries are constantly changing. Moment. It's black lives matter and calls for homeless reform. Then it's to fund the police and raise the minimum wage, public parks and city blocks occupied and overrun the homes of elected officials like the mayor and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. All targets. Various groups continue to peacefully march while a mob dressed in black now remains a constant threat. Representing a violent and volatile mix of activism nearly one year after George Floyd's death sparked social justice demonstrations and emboldened others to mobilize Seattle is exhausted and wounded. Many city leaders remain silent and on the sidelines from the business community to neighbors living in hot zones like Capitol Hill. We absolutely not taking it anymore. Victoria Beach says She's trying to create a united front in her neighborhood. But the chair of the Seattle Police Department's African American Community Advisory Council is struggling to find others. Willing to courageously stand by her side. We have the power to stop it. So why aren't we coming together? We need every public official in Seattle to draw a really clear bright line and condemn. Violent acts. John Schools, the CEO and president of the downtown Seattle Association, he says it's hard enough for business is recovering from covert 19 profit losses. But when violent protesters continue to target the downtown core, that is gonna hold back recovery. It's time to stop any. If not, you're gonna go to jail and we will prosecute you.

House to vote on $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill this week

"Trillion coronavirus Relief bill will go to a vote this week. Republicans in Congress say it is too much money. Here's Congressman James Comber from Kentucky. Congress already appropriated $150 billion in the cares act for state and local governments. And not all this money's been spent. So the Biden administration is looking outside of Washington, D. C to build their case. Here's NPR White House correspondent Tamara Keith. When Mesa Arizona Mayor John Giles looks out his window at City Hall, he can see the convention center. It's become a hub for those seeking help in the pandemic. And on alternating days it is people that are there too. Up there drunk and get £50 of food, putting their trump or its people. They're waiting in line to get the vaccine. So it's a pretty sobering view from the mayor's office. His city got $90 million in relief funds last spring spent it all and Giles says they easily could have filed receipts for double that. Sobering view from his office window explains why this Republican mayor is pushing hard for the $350 billion in funding for state and local governments in the bill. You know this is it's just too important to engage in silly partisan debates. Most cities and towns didn't get direct help, like Mesa did. They had to wait for it to trickle down through their states and counties. The deadline to spend it isn't until the end of this year, so some are trying to make it last as they manage strapped budgets. For months now, a bipartisan group of mayors has been pushing for more. In July. We called ourselves July or bust. That's Dayton, Ohio Mayor Nan Whaley, a Democrat. Her city's budget has been slammed by the pandemic so much so that she isn't sure they'll be able to train a new class of police officers or firefighters. This year. We're not like the federal government, we have to have a balanced budget. So if we don't get a federal money, no fire class Dayton is recruiting new firefighters and police officers but may not be able to bring them on board without more money. When it comes to the schools. It's a similar story. Congress has approved about $68 billion so far for K 12 schools. Well, not all of the funds have been spent. Education officials say the money is spoken for, and they need more. In Pennsylvania Palisades School District Superintendent Bridget O'Connell says they were able to reopen in the fall. And that meant hiring more teachers to reduce class sizes and to teach online So it is a staff intensive endeavor to educate kids during a pandemic Staff aren't paid up front, which is one reason why it may look like funds or unspent. And the bulk of the money Congress approved for schools last year is just now going out. Superintendent Sean Record from Pema, Arizona on Lee found out last week how much his district can expect to get. I have a list of all you know of things that we need in order to be able to You know, provide better social distancing more safety for teachers, more safety for students. They've been open nearly full time since the fall making do with the money. They have his message to critics who point to unspent funds and say schools don't need more. It isn't a light switch. The money doesn't get approved one day and spent the next And that's why President Biden and Democrats are pushing ahead with new funding and say they can't wait for Republicans in Congress to come around tomorrow.

call cal Gucci hobo Tokyo which means almost Tokyo he says about six percent of the population thirty five thousand people here are immigrants that's extraordinarily high for Japan an island country that's restricted immigration for centuries the new one the somber manually Cisco Gucci has many immigrants seeking asylum from persecution particularly about a thousand Kurds who fled Turkey but Japan hands out refugee status the less than one percent of applicants so many live without documentation or requires a legal status to you there so that's where mayor okay no key comes in he funds education for children without papers including free after school Japanese lessons and he spends about six million dollars a year in city funds on health insurance for immigrants who can join the national insurance program those into death will dole's it's pragmatic politics the mayor says companies in his town are facing a severe labor shortage like the rest of Japan they need immigrant workers of course this is not without controversy the mayor hears complaints about immigrants who for example don't follow the country's intricate garbage disposal roles where is the rules on how to sort and dispose of household garbage I kao Gucci's multicultural coexistence subsection you'll find flyers in several languages with advice on Japanese life like how to separate your recycling and there's another flyer called friendship news plus info on civic events anything to help acclimate newcomers but there's also this pamphlets made to look like passports that advise Japanese on how to help and understand and be friends with immigrants because the income of the team they have in many many different countries friends there it leaving here Jim well why he's the coordinator for international relations and cow with Yuji we wanted to own a Japanese people and their stand how they can leaving better with a four inch people one explain that one way to live better with foreigners is to tell them to lower their voices the complaint that immigrants in cal Gucci hang out in large groups disturbing the quiet of Japanese life is common so this passport tells Japanese had to say please keep quiet in a variety of languages one is originally from China and she used to live in the United States which she sees as a model for a multicultural Japan in the stated many people say use their own language and is a you can keep as their own culture yeah I'm saying right now weekend two eight also in Japan but such talk of a diverse Japanese future meta harsher reality when I visited a Kurdish family in cal Gucci for dinner one night we ate out an ornate blanket on the floor Kurdish style next each plate with chopsticks Japanese style the family asked me not to use their real names they're seeking asylum from Turkey where they say they'd face possible persecution and mandatory military conscription if they return they were repeatedly denied refugee status by the Japanese government but they're continuing to appeal the patriarch of the family the uncle is the only one with a long term visa no Kurds of ever gotten the silo in Japan are you hopeful that your family to be

the cover Gucci area without getting permission from immigration authorities those restrictions got him rejected from the college of his choice and he's not allowed to work legally either he won't discuss how he makes ends meet but many Kurds work off the books doing construction and demolition Congo the gates there on you know enough to deal coming from other countries choosing to live in Japan as Japanese people is more enriching to Japan and that's the sort of country I think Japan should strive for a global society a Kurdish man and a Vietnamese woman speaking Japanese eating

"Our first question comes from a listener in San Francisco's South Beach neighborhood. I'm Kevin I was born and raised originally in Texas but I've lived on on the west coast since two thousand and two day. Kevin was walking around San Francisco checking out a display of historical flags outside City Hall. I noticed you all the other flags sort of made sense. Yeah Down with the shift. You had the flag of Mexico things like that. But then I saw Texas the Texas state flag flying outside San Francisco City Hall. The Texas flag is made out of three bars and start. There's one vertical bar on the left. That blue with a white five pointed pointed star in the center and then there are two horizontal bars and the rest of it White are above red wine here to answer why there's a Texas flag in front of City Hall is reporter Ana Decline Hanukah. I love you so first off. Walk me through what these flags outside City Hall even are okay. So if you walk up to City Hall in San Francisco you'll walk through two rows of nine flags each they all represent these different points in American history. It's kind of like walking through a time line of these important moments like you have betsy. Betsy Ross's thirteen stars in a circle that original American flag. Or you've got the classic. Don't tread on me flag with rattlesnake which would become the navy's first flag there's also a republic of California flag which kind of looks like our current state flag. But a little bit more of a I would say like a kid druick Shen rudimentary. Bear looks a little bit more like a pig to me just to me. You know maybe other people disagree But the state did upgrade so when California became a state and joined join the Union in eighteen fifty Later on the flag would change. Now we have the ferocious grizzly right but as our question Asker Kevin Notes. There's a Texas Texas flag Among these flags outside City Hall so why Texas that flag is technically the Republic of Texas flag so also in the mid eighteen hundreds the republic of Texas existed for about ten years. It was its own independent republic recognized by the United States. At the end of that run it became the twenty eighth state but that flag stayed the same. So it's kind of hard to differentiate between the Republic of Texas flag and the State of Texas flag but I'm told by our city's parks and Rec Department that it's the Republic of Texas flag. It just looks exactly the same basic. Aren't you access flick. Okay cool so. The inclusion of you know flags like like the Republic of California and the Republic of Texas. They were kind of odd choices at the time But the people who curated flags for inclusion in the eighteen flags felt they represented important if not sometimes tumultuous points in our country's history flags you know certainly throughout history. There's many examples of when they've been pretty controversial. Are there any other other interesting examples of ones that have been outside our city hall well since you mentioned it. The confederate flag actually flew for a short time outside of San Francisco City Hall. Oh but it was removed shortly after it went up because people protested it was originally part of those eighteen flags that went up in nineteen sixty four and then civil rights groups and others said hey you know we don't want that representing our city. Wow well there's a story that you will not find that Civic Center Plaza these days but you can find details about all the rest of the flags on these little plaque set center at the bottom of each flagpoles can check that out If you can't make it out to Civic Center Plaza you can also head online to bake curious dot org where we will have information about all the eighteen flags that are out there in front of City Hall all right. Well thanks for finding the answer and you're welcome. Our next question comes from a listener. Who didn't want to be recorded? But I can tell you. She's a big history buff during the early days of European settlement in the bay area public. Life centered around the town square. But these days there are dozens and dozens of square scattered all around in San Francisco. Our listener wants to know which was the first public square in the city. And what happened. There we sent reporter Mari Soul Medina Katina to hunt down the answer today. I'm at Portsmouth. Square in the heart of San Francisco's Chinatown around here are a lot of GRANDMAS and grandpas playing playing cards. I've heard this is the city's first square which makes sense because it's in the center of everything and the TRANSAMERICA building funding. If literally right across from the park there are some rich. History here at Portsmouth Square but is this the first square for San Francisco to find out. I met historian Christopher pollock before this became the city of San Francisco known as your but Plano and It was occupied first by Spanish and then later by Mexicans pollock told me the plaza was the center of government affairs for the Spanish and Mexican settlers. flers so Portsmouth Square is the first square. It was around before San Francisco became San Francisco and before it even had the name Portsmouth Square. The name would come when the Americans arrived during the Mexican American war that broke out in eighteen. Forty six. It's the two year war that resulted in the US. Acquiring half of Mexico's territory to fulfill. What many Americans believed was there manifest destiny any captain John? Montgomery lands near Portsmouth Square and symbolically raised a flag to signal that the Swiss American Occupation Montgomery went on to rename the square after his ship. The US Portsmouth.
