EMERGENCY ACTION AND MEETING TO DEFEND HUCHIUN – KNOWLAND PARK! @ Oakland Zoo Knowland Park entrance
Aug 6 @ 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm

EMERGENCY ACTION AND MEETING TO DEFEND HUCHIUN – KNOWLAND PARK!

PLEASE SHARE AND INVITE!

http://www.facebook.com/events/1621914134725011/

12:00 PM – Thursday August 6th – The Knowland Park entrance by the intersection of Malcolm and Snowdown Ave.

6:00 PM – Planning Meeting – The Knowland Park entrance by the intersection of Malcolm an Snowdown Ave.

Please join us this Thursday to stop the construction and plan a long term resistance to defend the park and neighborhood from the Zoo!

Over the weekend the Oakland Zoo began constructing a fence around the proposed development site for the Zoo expansion despite public outcry against its negative impacts on the rare habitat and working class neighborhood. The Oakland Zoo plans to cut down 50+ trees including 2 old growth Oak trees destroying the home of the threatened Alameda Whipsnake, the rare Maritime Chaparral plant community and the Mountain Lion. We see this expansion as neo-colonial, gentrifying, and devastating to this rare and beautiful land. Now that the Zoo and City of Oakland are refusing to hear the concerns of a massive community coalition the we are being forced to take direct action to protect the land.

Aug 6 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join Slow Food East Bay and Transition Berkeley for an evening delving into the prickly world of fish, fishing and the health of the oceans. We’ll start at 6pm with a potluck dinner (true to Slow Food USA local and sustainable values!) then see the amazing new film about salmon and the northwest, The Breach, at 7. (http://www.thebreachfilm.com)
The evening comes to a point with a short panel of local fisher(wo)men, fish mongers and others involved with keeping this huge part of our ecosystem healthy and in balance and Q&A with local folks involved in the worlds of fishing and the oceans. How can we both support those that make their livelihood from the ocean and the fish populations? How can we be educated and inquisitive consumers of seafood, asking the right questions about sourcing, distribution and health? Join us in the conversation to try to find answers to these questions and more.
Representatives from Slow Food will also talk about the political & gastronomic history of the Slow Food movement, explain the ‘Good Clean & Fair For All’ mission, and announce current projects and opportunities for involvement. For more For more info: info [at] transitionberkeley.com

Anniversary of the Police Murder of Mike Brown @ Oscar Grant Plaza
Aug 7 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

August 8-10: Mark the Anniversary of the Police Murder of Mike Brown and the Heroic Uprising that Followed:
It Was – AND IS – Right to Rebel!!

On August 9, it will be one year since a Ferguson, Missouri, cop, Darren Wilson executed Michael Brown for walking in the middle of the day on a sleepy street. Mike Brown was unarmed, running away, and had his hands up when he was shot multiple times and then his body was left lying dead in the street for four-and-a-half hours.

This brutal murder was met with outrage. For days and then weeks people took to the streets with defiance, rage, and righteous rebellion. People insisted on their rights and defended those rights in the street. Without the rebellion, this terrible state-done murder would just be another rerun of the same old, all-too-familiar story, the same murderous stuff that happens to Black and Latino youths over and over again. Very few people would have shared the grief of his parents for the terrible loss of this young man, at the very beginning of his life. The defiance and righteous rebellion challenged people all over the country to get off the sidelines and stand with those refusing to take this any longer.

It is important that on the weekend of August 8-10, the anniversary of the murder of Michael Brown, people stand firmly and publicly manifest that the verdict rendered by the people, that those who took to the streets of Ferguson in righteous and defiant rebellion and protest night after night, was true – Mike Brown did not have to die. It was right for the people of Ferguson to rebel and people everywhere are proud of them for rising up. On– Mike Brown should not have been murdered by the police.

HANDS UP! DON’T SHOOT! Fuck the DOJ! The struggle in Ferguson opened a crack in the coffin where America has buried alive whole sections of Black and Latino youths and the struggle over the last year has widened the crack further. WE WILL NOT GO BACK.

Eyewitness Report from Cleveland: Black Lives Matter!
Aug 7 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

In Cleveland, Ohio, a delegation of the Party for Socialism and Liberation joined 1000 other attendees at the first ever Movement for Black Lives National Convening. The activists met and engaged with others who are part of the resurgence of the struggle against racist police terror. Then, shortly after the conference ended, a stunning indictment was handed down in Cincinnati, charging a police officer with murder in the death of a Black motorist. This indictment is clearly a result of a powerful country-wide movement. The thousand people gathered in Cleveland said clearly, “Black Lives Matter!”

Join us for presentation, video and discussion of the next steps of this important struggle.

Aug 8 @ 4:00 pm – 11:45 pm

#DayofRage is in honor of Sandra Bland. We, the people of the Bay Area, and the United State of Amerika need to stand up and fight the racist, and militant police force that controls us. Its time for us to stand up for our rights and make our voices heard.

We do not want to cause any more violence than we are already accustomed to, but we do need to raise hell. We need to stick up for our brothers and sisters nation wide. We need full police reform. We need your help. Please find time in your busy lives to make a difference. We need voices and bodies from all walks of life, after all, we are in this together. Please spread the word, and invite friends, family, coworkers, etc. We need this senseless violence to stop. Bring noise makers, loud speakers, anything to catch the attention of the masses. How many more deaths will it take for change to happen? Why wait, lets make it happen now.

Remember, if you are reading this, then you ARE the RESISTANCE.

RIP Sandra Bland. Another senseless murder for the fail to use a turning signal.

Bay Area Peace Lantern Ceremony @ Aquatic Park
Aug 8 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

 North end of Aquatic Park in Berkeley.

The Bay Area Peace Lantern Ceremony draws forth something beautiful: a community coming together to express visions of a peaceful future and re-commit to bringing those visions to life out of something nightmarish: the incineration of the bustling cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by atomic bombs on August 6 and 9, 1945.
Today, we who are organizing the Peace Lantern Ceremony have our own, new “beautiful nightmare.”
In past years the Peace Lantern Ceremony has drawn between 100 and 650 people.
So far this year, we have nearly 10,000 RSVPs!
We are at an amazing moment, with a beautiful opportunity to grow the movement for a peaceful, nuclear-free world.

·         Your cooperation. Please: (1) Take transit, bike, walk, or get dropped off at the event:
·         Your understanding. We won’t be able to float lanterns for everyone who attends, and may not even have enough lantern shades for everyone to decorate. (If you want to make shades ahead-of-time and bring them to the event, see the volunteer form, which includes a link to instructions.) If there are no shades left when you arrive, please enjoy observing this beautiful event.
·         Wear warm layers; it gets chilly in the park.
·         Bring a flashlight, snacks, water (no glass containers, please).
·         We probably won’t have enough chairs and tables. If you can lend some, or bring your own folding chair, please do.
·         Check our Facebook page for other updates:

BECOMING OMNI COMMONS @ Omni Commons
Aug 9 @ 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm

We invite you to join us on Sunday, August 9th at the Omni Commons. We are assembling a Volunteer Design & Facilitation Team that will plan and steward a collective visioning and planning process with all of Omni Commons. This future process, which we are calling BECOMING OMNI COMMONS, will seek to:

* expand and transform our collective sense of possibility
* clarify our shared values
* examine our cultures, narratives and processes
* create priorities to move towards more sustainable and supportive ways of being together and being in the world
* design an action-calendar for our visioning and planning process

A plan for BECOMING OMNI COMMONS will be presented to the Omni Commons delegates council (our governance body) and actualized as soon as possible.

The details:
Who: You! Anyone interested in joining our Volunteer Design & Facilitation Team (described above)
What: A fun four-hour facilitated, preparatory meeting, followed by DINNER!
Where: Omni Commons, 4799 Shattuck Ave, Oakland, CA 94609 (and possibly on-line if you cannot be physically present)
When: Sunday Aug 9th 2pm-6pm (you must arrive on-time and stay for the entire session)
Why:
Given our present circumstances:
* We are in a serious financial pickle right now.
* We have an opportunity to potentially buy the building very soon.
* We are struggling with interpersonal conflict, overwork, and burnout.
* We have never had the opportunity to engage in a visioning process since moving into 4799 Shattuck a year ago.
We need to:
* Reform our processes to be inclusive of as many perspectives as possible.
* Align our work and our organizing with our ideals and our politics.
* Provide a safe platform for constructive criticism and reflection.
* Invest openness, patience and respect for the diversity of perspectives and experiences of all of those who have been involved or impacted by Omni Commons in some way or another.
How: If you’d like to join the team and can attend the meeting, RSVP to becoming@lists.omnicommons.org and share any important requests or dietary needs.

RSVP to becoming@lists.omnicommons.org

DAC Opposition photo no-surveillance-city-council_zps7d741c77.jpgJoin Oakland Privacy Working Group to organize against the Domain Awareness Center (DAC), Oakland’s citywide networked mass surveillance hub, and other invasions of privacy by our benighted City Government, to support privacy ordinances now being considered by the Oakland City Council emerging from the effort to fight the DAC, fight against Predictive Policing, Stingray and help in other fights to preserve and restore our privacy around the Bay Area, in California and nationwide.

OPWG was instrumental in stopping the DAC from becoming a city-wide spying network, and its members helped draft the Privacy Policy that puts further restrictions on the now Port-restricted DAC.

Stop by and learn how you can help guard Oakland’s right not to be spied on by the government & if you are interested in joining the Oakland Privacy Working Group email listserv, send an email to:

The Struggle Of Japanese Railway Workers Against Privatization… @ Richmond Public Library
Aug 15 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

The Struggle Of Japanese Railway Workers Against Privatization/Union Busting/Nuclear Power And The Threat Of Imperialist War In Asia

Report By Doro-Chiba International Support Committee

The Japanese Abe government is working to crush all political opposition. It is reopening NUKE plants such as the Sendai nuclear plant, passing secrecy laws and also is attacking labor and all working people with economic attacks and increased repression. Doro-Chiba is a militant railway union based in Chiba,, Japan that has been fighting privatization of Japan rail for decades, opposing nuclear power and also linking up with Korean workers including the Korean Railway Workers Union who had a national strike against privatization of the Korea Rail.
The US government and US politicians both Democrat and Republicans are pushing for militarization of Japan and the elimination of clause 9 which prohibits offensive wars. Despite mass opposition of the people of Japan the government continues to push ahead with reaming, selling weapons to other countries and towards war with China and other countries of Asia. The revision of Japanese textbooks to censor the role of the sex slaves by the Japanese government and military during the 2nd WW is part and parcel of encouraging nationalism and a racist campaign against the people of other countries in Asia.
This delegate of the Doro-Chiba International Support Committee will report on the struggle of the railway workers, the fight against nuclear power and against a new imperialist war in Asia.
The need for US railway and transportation workers as well as all working people to oppose the opening of Japan’s 48 nuclear plants, the continued attacks on Japanese workers and war in Asia is critical. The working people have the power to halt these growing threats.
