A video posted to social media shows a woman pulling down the flags of several Latin American countries outside an Oakland school in “a hostile act,” district officials said.

The video, which was posted to Instagram on Sunday by a community organization called the Black Bay Area, opens with the woman pulling on a rope attached to a flag pole outside Havenscourt Campus in East Oakland.

The campus houses Coliseum College Prep Academy, a combined middle and high school, and a health center.

John Sasaki, an Oakland Unified School District spokesperson, told The Times that officials first noticed something was amiss Saturday afternoon.

The academy’s principal saw the flags had been taken down and found them nearby, knotted and crumpled up, Sasaki said. She fixed the flags and raised them.

“They include the flags of Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala here during Latino Heritage Month,” he said. “On Sunday, the principal was alerted to the video on social media, which makes it clear that taking down the flags was a hostile act.”

Not everyone experiences the effects of climate change the same way. Latinxs are disproportionately bearing the brunt of it.

In the video, the unidentified woman threatens to burn the flags and appears to be egging witnesses on.

“And then it can be your fault,” the woman says.

The person recording the video asks the woman why she was taking the flags down. The woman replies with expletives and tells the person to “get out of my f—ing business.”

Another person not shown on camera asks the woman why she took down a Black Lives Matter flag.

“This is not Black Lives Matter,” the woman says. “This is Mexico. … This says Mexico. I’m taking it down.”

The academy’s principal sent a message to the school community Sunday evening to inform them of the incident and to convey that the school and district “will stand behind the students and staff regardless of what anyone outside the community does,” Sasaki said.

“CCPA’s student body is more than 75% Latino, and Latino Heritage Month is very important to the community, as it is at schools across the district,” he said Monday evening. “We have talked with the Oakland Police Department, and are working with them on this issue.”

The district spokesperson called the actions captured on video “wrong, repugnant and pointless.”

As of Monday night, the woman’s identity remains unknown.

Kim Armstead, an Oakland police spokesperson, said the department hadn’t taken a report from the district or school officials.

“We did however speak with their [public information officer], who advised a report would be made today,” Armstead said Monday evening.

Further information about the incident was not available.

"A few years ago, we also launched a consumer gaming service, Stadia," Stadia vice president and GM Phil Harrison said. 

"And while Stadia’s approach to streaming games for consumers was built on a strong technology foundation, it hasn’t gained the traction with users that we expected."

For that reason, Google made the difficult decision to begin "winding down the service."

As for what happens next, Google said the service will remain live through January 18, 2023.

In the meantime, it will begin processing refunds for all Stadia hardware purchased through the Google store.

They will also refund users' money for games and add-on content purchased from the Stadia store.

Google said it expects all refunds to be completed by mid-January.

Employees on the Stadia team will be distributed to other parts of the company.

"For the Stadia team, building and supporting Stadia from the ground up has been fueled by the same passion for games that our players have," Harrison said.

"Many of the Stadia team members will be carrying this work forward in other parts of the company."

"We’re so grateful for the groundbreaking work of the team and we look forward to continuing to have an impact across gaming and other industries using the foundational Stadia streaming technology."
