WTf ...... that was the church?I always wondered who was in that place. I always walked by it from the swamp or the place with the skate ramp in the side yard. that area is still one of the best in oakland.
Ha, that was our media name. It was really called Hydra House 'cause it was the third of three squat that came directly out of the Stay Away after it was evicted.

Seeing that photo was a sad sight.
I remember when we(dooney, keeloco, achilles,kyle, solo) were coming up with names hydra popped into are heads. One because were nerds and two because of an awesome metal song me and k would sing. Then it kinda clicked.
The fern and hydra house. I don't remember the other.

Good times were definitely had there and I miss it every day. Fuuuuuuck I miss the old days when everyone worked together and got along.
Hydra house forever<3

Kee locos side of the room after some months of sillyness and drunk people painting are walls. In that picture frame was an old leather southern pacific seat piece from a rusted out locomotive we found.

The kitchen with some random food bank fruit. I believe this was from a squat luck(potluck)

solo infront of the ktvu news truck. This was shortly after a swarm of sheriffs evicted us from the stay away squat.

If I ever go somewhere expensive like California again, I will use my new knowledge about squats and foreclosed houses.

the eviction was carried out by the county this spring after a court case.

Let me get this right, you're saying Hydra went until this year??

I visited a few times at the beginning, guess that was 2013/2014. Had no clue it kept going, somehow I thought it got evicted within a year.

I think the third you might be thinking of was La Idea, which actually started a little before Stayaway got evicted.

There was also the Crusher around the corner, and another a few blocks away. Seems forgotten to most who lived in the West Oakland nexus, but the area just east of Highland had a shitload of squats for a couple years there.

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $40.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $40.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
