Ongoing: Berkeley Staples Table/Occupation and Boycott. @ Staples, Downtown Berkeley
Sep 13 @ 12:00 am – Sep 16 @ 11:45 pm

Peeps are continually staffing a table outside of Staples, 24-7, ongoing for more than three weeks now (and about a month in July, then a short break). They are protesting the privatization of the Post Office and Staples role in it, outsourcing living wage Postal Service personnel for subsistence wage Staples employees.

Tents have gone up along the Durant sidewalk with ‘Stop Staples’ signs!

Come by and say hello, hang out, bring ‘em a bit to eat and drink, and give them your support!

Flood Wall Street in Support of Actions Against Climate Change. @ Downtown Manhattan
Sep 22 all-day

 

In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. On the 21st, there will be a massive march. On the 22nd, the day before their summit, as politicians have meetings with the corporate oligarchs who profit from the disasters they are creating, we are going to take action. We will Flood Wall Street. Be there. Climate Change is here, and the only solution is a movement.

Global Action Day Against the Use of Drones for Surveillance & Killing @ All around the World.
Oct 4 all-day

Listing of Actions.

Join the first Global Action Day Against the Use of Drones for Surveillance & Killing – October 4, 2014

As global citizens who believe in justice and the rule of law, we oppose weaponized and surveillance drones because their deployment:

  • violates democratic rights of freedom of speech and assembly and the right not to be unreasonably searched,
  • is used for extrajudicial “targeted” killings based merely on suspicion — murders — even of children inside and outside of war zones,
  • terrorizes populations in targeted territories, thereby fueling hatred and increasing the cycle of violence,
  • lowers the threshold to war and initiates a new round in the arms race,
  • leads to the development of autonomous killer robots, thereby making even more horrifying wars likely.

We demand that all governments cease the production and acquisition of armed drones, as well as their research and development, and work towards a worldwide ban of these weapons.

We further demand that our governments prohibit the use of drones for surveillance and prohibit using space satellites, ground stations, and military bases to enable drone surveillance and to trigger drone killings.

We call on people all over the world to join us in the Global Day of Action on October 4.

If you or your group are planning an action or event for October 4 and would like to post information about it on this website, please email a brief description to Anastasia of CODEPINK at anastasia@codepink.org.

The description may be in any language, but it is best to also include an English translation so that people around the world can read it.

Please include the address of your event, with the postal code, so that it will show up on the map.

You may also send for posting on the website a URL link or a PDF or JPEG attachment such as a photo, flyer, press release, or news coverage of your event.
