“Join activists from CREDO, 350, Sierra Club, Friends of the Earth, Center for Biological Diversity and others, to send President Obama a big message: Stop Keystone XL! The last time we protested the President’s San Francisco fundraiser we shocked the President with a huge crowd of 1,000 people. We know from insiders that we caused a big buzz in the White House, and our pressure worked. Now, with the President again considering Keystone XL, we need a huge crowd outside his San Francisco fundraiser to deliver the message: Stop Keystone … Continued

“If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be part of your revolution.” – Emma Goldman (supposedly) On Jan 28, 2012 Occupy Oakland activists planned “Oakland Rise Up! Move-in Day”, an action intended to result in the takeover of a large building to be converted into a community center. The Oakland Police Department responded to a jubilant show of community support and enthusiasm for community service by firing “less lethal” weapons and deploying explosives on a crowd which very clearly included children.

Bring Your Solutions to the Streets! Organize against Bratton, OPD and Stop and Frisk.

Dear-Bill-500bc

When:  January 24, 2013 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm Where: Oscar Grant Plaza amphitheater, Broadway & 14th Street, Oakland, CA We brought our solutions to city hall. The council heard the public loud and clear: NO MORE MONEY FOR OPD; invest the money in our schools, in our shuttered libraries, in youth centers and job programs. Unsurprisingly they have decided to hand more money in a broken and visibly racist police force. So in light of the recent and expected arrogance on the part of city council, we converge … Continued
