Please join Occupy Oakland and friends as we host our second neighborhood BBQ and speak out this Saturday, March 24, 2012 at 1:00 PM in Rainbow Park (Seminary and International in East Oakland). This BBQ will follow the weekly free food program in Rainbow Park and will last until 5:00 PM.
Events during the BBQ include: emergency first aid training, a foreclosure defense workshop, an open forum on gang injunctions and repression in Oakland, the Children’s Village, Occupy Patriarchy’s Danger Zone, and a general speak out. Stay tuned to oobbq.org for updates.
Swing by the BBQ and please consider helping this important movement building project in one of the following ways:
Help with the cooking:
– Every Friday before a BBQ, there will be a mass coordinated cooking operation. We need as much help as we can get! We are expecting hundreds of people at each BBQ. Contact email@example.com or 510-205-4550 for more information. Also, have a house near one of the BBQ locations with a good kitchen we can cook in? Let us know!
Bring a dish to share:
– Feel free to bring something yummy to share at any of our BBQs. Sides, salads, drinks & desserts are best!
Make a donation:
– Hosting four big BBQs that will each serve hundreds of free meals takes a lot of resources (more than $2500!). Make a secure donation online here: https://www.wepay.com/donations/166567.
