From the Frontlines: Communities Fighting Fossil Fuel Pollution @ or online
Apr 13 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

In “sacrifice zones” around the country, communities — especially low-income communities and people of color — have been struggling against the effects of nearby oil, gas, and plastic production facilities.

Five speakers from these frontline communities will gather to share their stories and describe ways they are organizing to defend themselves.

Meg, an organizer with Speak Out Now and an environmental activist in Baltimore. She is actively organizing community and worker efforts to confront the fossil fuel industry and the capitalist system that drives it in areas like Curtis Bay, a neighborhood in South Baltimore, that houses the second largest coal export pier in the US and the largest medical waste incinerator in the US.

Art worked for 36 years with US Steel in the coke manufacturing plant in Clairton, PA and was involved with the safety and civil rights committee with the union. Now he is an organizer with Valley Clean Air Now (VCAN) in Allegheny County, PA and speaks out about the health and safety issues related to coal byproducts.

Carly is a resident of Beaver County, PA, across the state line from the East Palestine, OH ` train derailment. After the derailment and subsequent vent and burn, she and her family faced multiple health problems and she saw had no choice but to organize and advocate for herself and her community.

Elise is an environmental organizer and attorney from West Virginia who has spent decades organizing with others across the country against chemical spills and coal extraction and for autonomy for people everywhere.

David is a resident of Curtis Bay, an industrial neighborhood in South Baltimore. He started organizing around crime in the area, but realized it was connected to the poverty and pollution imposed by huge coal, chemical, and waste industries that we must confront.

Occupy Oakland General Assembly @ Oscar Grant Plaza
Apr 14 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

NOTE: During the Plague Year of 2020 GA will be held every week or two on Zoom. To find out the exact time a date get on the Occupy Oakland email list my sending an email to:

occupyoakland-subscribe@lists.riseup.net

 

The Occupy Oakland General Assembly meets every Sunday at 4 PM at Oscar Grant Plaza amphitheater at 14th Street & Broadway near the steps of City Hall. If for some reason the amphitheater is being used otherwise and/or OGP itself is inaccessible, we will meet at Kaiser Park, right next to the statues, on 19th St. between San Pablo and Telegraph. If it is raining (as in RAINING, not just misting) at 4:00 PM we meet in the basement of the Omni Collective, 4799 Shattuck Ave., Oakland. (Note: we tend to meet at 3:00 PM during the cooler months from November to early March after Daylights Savings Time.)

On every ‘last Sunday’ we meet a little earlier at 3 PM to have a community potluck to which all are welcome.

OO General Assembly has met on a continuous basis for over six years, since October 2011! Our General Assembly is a participatory gathering of Oakland community members and beyond, where everyone who shows up is treated equally. Our Assembly and the process we have collectively cultivated strives to reach agreement while building community.

At the GA committees, caucuses, and loosely associated groups whose representatives come voluntarily report on past and future actions, with discussion. We encourage everyone participating in the Occupy Oakland GA to be part of at least one associated group, but it is by no means a requirement. If you like, just come and hear all the organizing being done! Occupy Oakland encourages political activity that is decentralized and welcomes diverse voices and actions into the movement.

Green Sunday: The March Primary Election Results and Moving Forward to November’s Election @ Online
Apr 14 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Join Zoom Meeting:
https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88083342274

A dual focus.  The first focus will be on the results of last month’s primary election, especially with respect to the positions we took in our Green Voter Guide (see: https://acgreens.wordpress.com/voter-guides/ ).  We’ll discuss election surprises (such as Nikki Bas’s substantial lead over John Bauters for County Supervisor, and Kathryn Lybarger’s 4th place finish behind Arreguin, Beckles, and Kalb, for State Senate); as well as disappointments (including Jennifer Esteen’s loss to Nate Miley for County Supervisor, Lupe Angulo’s loss to Janevette Cole for County School Board, and Katie Porter’s distant 3rd place finish in the U.S. Senate contest).  And we’ll also discuss the victories, such as the passage of all of the ballot measures we endorsed, Margot Smith’s “Top Two” qualification for State Assembly, Angela Normand’s re-election to the County School Board, and Mark Fickes win for Superior Court Judge.

Our second focus will be on moving forward to the November general election, including the “runoff elections” between Jovanka Beckles and Jesse Arreguin for State Senate, and between Nikki Bas and John Bauters for County Supervisor.  And we’ll also cover the City Council and School Board elections in Berkeley and in Oakland, Berkeley’s Mayoral race, and of course the Presidential contest.

Please join us tonight at this key moment for our collective future.  As we wrote in our most recent Green Voter Guide, this is truly a year of monumental elections.

Bill Balderston is a Green Party County Council member and a regular contributor to our “Green Voter Guide”.  He has been a long-time leader and organizer with the OEA, the Oakland teachers’ union, and he is also active with Alameda Labor Council, East Bay DSA, and System Change, Not Climate Change.  He has been involved with peace and anti-imperialist organizing, on Vietnam, South Africa, Palestine, and Central America.

Brian Donahue is a longtime Green Party member and contributor to our “Green Voter Guide”.  He has also been an activist on school and local government issues for many years, and in 2022 was a candidate for the Emeryville School Board.  Brian was a co-founder of Residents United for a Livable Emeryville (RULE), which was able to elect every City Council member during their 14-year existence, and he also is the editor of the Emeryville Tattler news blog.

Greg Jan has served on the Alameda County Council for many years and is the coordinator of our “Green Voter Guide”.  He is also a member of the state party’s Coordinating Committee and is co-chair of its Candidates Committee.  He helped to organize the East Bay Green Alliance back in 1985 and in the early 1990’s helped with the founding of our state party.  Since that time, he has also worked on a number of Green Party campaigns, including for Dona Spring, Dan Hamburg, Peter Camejo, Aimee Allison, Laura Wells, and Jill Stein.

Negeene Mosaed is deeply engaged in progressive grassroots organizing in Berkeley.  She is the Chair of the Berkeley Tenants Union, serves on the steering committee of Berkeley Citizens Action, and in 2022 was a candidate for Berkeley’s Rent Board.  She is of Iranian ancestry and has deep roots with the Iranian people’s movement for liberation.  Negeene also is a member of Friends of Adeline and the owner of Berkeley Community Physical Therapy, the only clinic serving Medi-Cal and Medicare, and most types of insurance, and having the lowest cash pay rate in the greater Bay Area, as a commitment to serve and provide the highest quality of care to all community members.  Most recently, Negeene has been involved in organizing for a ceasefire resolution in Palestine, at the Berkeley city Council, and is one of the lead organizers of this growing and very active movement in Berkeley.

Oakland Privacy: Fighting Against the Surveillance State @ Online
Apr 17 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Please email contact@oaklandprivacy.org a few days before the meeting to get up-to-date location information or obtain Zoom meeting access info.

(THE JANUARY 17TH MEETING, 2024 WAS MOVED TO JANUARY 24TH)


Join Oakland Privacy to organize against the surveillance state, police militarization and ICE, and to advocate for privacy, surveillance regulation of both corporations and the state, and government transparency, around the Bay and nationwide.

op-logo.2.1We fight against spy drones, facial recognition, tracking equipment, police body camera secrecy, anti-transparency laws and requirements for “backdoors” to cellphones; we oppose “pre-crime” and “thought-crime,” —  to list just a few invasions of our privacy by all levels of Government, and attempts to hide what government officials, employees and agencies are doing.

We draft and push for privacy legislation for City Councils, at the County level, and in Sacramento. We advocate in op-eds and in the streets. We stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and believe no one is illegal.

Check out some of what we worked on in 2022, 2021, 2020 and 2019.

Oakland Privacy originally came together in 2013 to fight against the Domain Awareness Center, Oakland’s citywide networked mass surveillance hub. OP was instrumental in stopping the DAC from becoming a city-wide spying network.  We helped fight and in 2018 helped win the fight against Urban Shield.

Our major projects currently include local legislation to regulate state surveillance (we got the strongest surveillance regulation ordinance in the country passed in Oakland!), supporting and opposing state legislation as appropriate, battling mass surveillance in the form of facial recognition and other analytics, mass aerial surveillance, ubiquitous license plate readers,  and street surveillance, and fighting to ensure local governments adhere to State privacy and transparency regulations.

On September 12th, 2019 we were presented with a Barlow Award by the Electronic Frontier Foundation for our work, and on March 16th, 2021 s James Madison Freedom of Information Award by the Northern California Society of Professional Journalists.

Strike Debt Bay Area Book Group: Wealth Supremacy @ Online
Apr 20 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Email strike.debt.bay.area@gmail.com a few days beforehand for the online invite.

For our April meeting we will be reading  Wealth Supremacy: How the Extractive Economy and the Biased Rules of Capitalism Drive Today’s Crises, by Marjorie Kelly (Amazon, Penguin)

“This bold manifesto exposes seven myths underlying wealth supremacy, the bias that institutionalizes infinite extraction of wealth by and for the wealthy, and is the hidden force behind economic injustice, the climate crisis, and so many other problems of our day:

    • The Myth of Maximizing: No amount of wealth is ever enough.
    • The Myth of Fiduciary Duty: Corporate managers’ most sacred duty is to expand capital.
    • The Myth of Corporate Governance: Corporate membership must be reserved for capital alone.
    • The Myth of the Income Statement: Income to capital must always be increased, while income to labor must always be decreased.
    • The Myth of Materiality: Profit—material gain—alone is real, while social and environmental damages are not.
    • The Myth of Takings: The first duty of government must be the protection of private property.
    • The Myth of the Free Market: There should be no limits on the field of action of corporations and capital.


Kelly argues instead for the democratization of ownership: public ownership of vital services, worker-owned businesses, and more. And she sketches the outlines of a non-extractive capitalism that would be subordinate to the public interest. This is an ambitious reimagining of the very foundations of our economy and society.
.”

Strike Debt Bay Area hosts this non-technical book group discussion monthly on new and radical economic thinking. Previous readings have included (in chronological order) Doughnut EconomicsLimitsBanking on the PeopleCapital and Its Discontents, How to Be an Anti-Capitalist in the 21st Century, The Deficit Myth,  Revenge Capitalism, the Edge of Chaos blog symposium , Re-enchanting the World: Feminism and the Politics of the Commons, The Optimist’s TelescopeMission Economy: A Moonshot Guide to Changing Capitalism, Exploring Degrowth, The Origin of Wealth, Mine!, The Dawn of Everything  A History of the World in Seven Cheap Things, Beyond Money, Less is More,  Cannibal Capitalism,  Debt, the First 5000 Years , Poverty, By America, End Times, Jackson Rising Redux , The Feminist Subversion of the Economy and How Infrastructure Works, Inside the Systems that Shape our World.

Sweep The Court @ San Francisco Federal Building
Apr 22 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

In January 2024, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear the appeal of Johnson v. Grants Pass, a Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that barred municipalities across the western United States from punishing their unhoused residents for sleeping outside, even when there are no available shelter options. With its hard-right conservative majority, SCOTUS will likely overturn Grants Pass, creating a devastating ripple effect for homeless people across the country. Democratic leaders across local and state governments have submitted amicus briefs, or “Friends of the Court” briefs, in support of the overturning of Grants Pass– a deliberate attempt to use the hyper conservative court to enact violence on their poorest constituents.

On April 22nd, 2024, cities across the country will mobilize to show their support for the rights of unhoused people, demanding that the Supreme Court recognize sweeps without the offer of adequate shelter constitute cruel and unusual punishment, a violation of the Eighth Amendment. In San Francisco, where the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is located and the fight for the human rights of homeless people is most storied, join us in mobilizing from the Federal Building, to the State Building, and then ending at City Hall on April 22nd.
