Occupy Forum Presents “SHUT DIABLO CANYON, CALIFORNIA’S LAST NUKE!” @ Global Exchange, 2nd floor, near 16th St. BART
Dec 22 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

SHUT DIABLO CANYON, CALIFORNIA’S LAST NUKE!

With the wonderful anti-nuke activist and writer Harvey “No Nukes” Wasserman, author of Solartopia. Harvey coined the term “No Nukes”. He was arrested at Diablo back in the 80s. He organized anti-nuke concerts with Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Crosby Stills Nash & Young. He has a radio program on Progressive Radio Network: Solartopia Green Power And Wellness Hour – 12.09.14 – PRN.fm

also: Linda Seeley with San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace, and Cynthia Papermaster, coordinator of Codepink “PG&E Ratepayer Revolt to Shut Diablo Now!”

Starts promptly at 6! Information, discussion & community! Time will be allocated for announcements. Donations welcome, no one turned away. Occupy Forum is an opportunity for open and respectful dialogue on all sides of these critically important issues!

You’re going to want to be a part of this historic campaign and convergence to shut Diablo!

The NRC’s chief resident inspector at Diablo, Dr. Michael Peck, recommended LAST YEAR to shut the plant because critical backup safety systems won’t work in the event of an earthquake.

California’s Diablo Canyon nuclear reactors are surrounded by earthquake faults they were never designed to withstand. They are riddled with design flaws and can’t meet basic fire safety standards. They dump huge quantities of hot water into the ocean in defiance of state water quality standards, killing billions of sea creatures.
They continue to pile up huge quantities of deadly radioactive wastes that have no place to go. And that’s just the start of it.
Fortunately, a powerful grassroots movement is rising up in California to shut these reactors and make the state nuke-free. More demonstrators have been arrested at Diablo Canyon than any other nuke site in the U.S. Green Power activists recently won a landmark victory by shutting the two nukes at San Onofre, between Los Angeles and San Diego, leaving just the ones at Diablo to plague the state.

This gathering is meant to inform, energize, plan and commit us all to winning another great victory over the nuclear power industry, and to finally bring California to Solartopia, a green-powered state where we can live in harmony and safety with our nuke-free Mother Earth. Join us at this rare and wonderful gathering…bring your best intentions and let’s figure out how to win this one NOW.

Linda Seeley
Linda Seeley is Vice-President and Spokesperson for San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace, the legal intervenor in all matters pertaining to the safety and licensing of Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant in Avila Beach, CA. She is an advanced facilitator of Joanna Macy’s Work that Reconnects, group practices to guide us through the current world crisis without going crazy. She also serves on the Executive Committee of the Santa Lucia Sierra Club and is a Core Team member of the national Sierra Club Nuclear Free Campaign. She has lived in San Luis Obispo for 32 years, where she delivered over a thousand babies during her career as a nurse-midwife. Her passion for the future generations is the guiding principle in her work to shut down Diablo Canyon.

Codepink’s Cynthia Papermaster
is a law librarian, justice activist and mother in Berkeley, California, Coordinator of “PG&E Ratepayer Revolt to Shut Diablo”, Director of Berkeley No More Guantanamos, Co-Coordinator of Golden Gate Codepink Women for Peace, a Board Member of Meiklejohn Civil Liberties Institute. She is one of the “Vandenberg 15″ (Dan Ellsberg, Cindy Sheehan, Father Louis Vitale, etc.), arrested trying to stop an ICBM launch, undertook an 84-day hunger strike in 2013 in solidarity with Guantanamo and Pelican Bay hunger strikers. She works to end U.S. torture, close Guantanamo, end illegal wars of occupation and drone killing, civilize the police and end state violence, free Chelsea Manning, and audit the Pentagon.

Black Womyn’s Lives Matter: FREE Marissa NOW! Caravan working group meeting! @ Take 5 Cafe
Dec 23 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

We are ramping up the energy to FREE MARISSA NOW! We need to make her name known in every household across the u.s.ofa., and her freedom a STAND UP, FIGHT BACK cause across the country too.

Which is why we are going to caravan from Oakland to Jacksonville, spreading the word from city to city, town to town, as we banner, hand out flyers, engage in direct actions, teach-ins, whatever we can do as we travel across the country spreading the word of her freedom!

We have two vehicles that can carry up to 10 womyn – we still have space for 6 more! And if you have your own vehicle and want to join us, PLEASE do! The more vehicles, the larger the caravan, the more attention we bring to Marissa’s fight for freedom!

PLEASE come to the meeting, whether you intend to go on the caravan or not. We need plenty of on-the-ground support if you opt not to go.

But please seriously consider spending less than three weeks of your life working to get Marissa out from behind bars!

Remember: we are asking for less than three weeks of our lives when Marissa has already spent three YEARS of her life – and the lives of her children – in prison.

Surely we can willingly choose to put aside some time to ensure her freedom January 27th from a 3 year incarceration she certainly didn’t choose!

TOGETHER we WILL free Marissa and obtain a pardon for her!

See you Tuesday!

Also SAVE THE DATES: Sunday December 28th, 2-4pm, Sunday January 4th 2-4pm and Wednesday January 7th 7-9pm! We will hold potlucks, shows, fundraiser at these times!

EDGE COLLECTIVE 2nd OAKLAND ASSEMBLY ON JUSTICE FOR MIKE BROWN AND ERIC GARNER @ OMNI Collective
Dec 28 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Thanks to the group of over 80 people who came and participated in the December 14 meeting at Oscar Grant Plaza. Though we were forced to deal with the presence of several uniformed OPD officers as well as a freelance photo journalist and San Francisco Chronicle staffer who refused to leave, the group was able to reflect on this most recent wave of actions and what kind of infrastructures are necessary in the future to support our efforts. Thanks also to the Anti-Repression Committee who gave information about what kinds of support is still needed for people facing charges.

The assembly had initially decided to meet again at the Omni Oakland Commons on Sunday, December 21 @ 2PM. There are multiple events happening this weekend, however, and while we apologize for the change of plans, we think it is best to push back the meeting another week. We hope that folks will attend the following events and continue to help us outreach as much as possible.

Sunday, December 21 @ 1-3pm: Bay Area Legal Observer and Know Your Rights Training workshop in support of #BlackLivesMatter at the East Side Arts Alliance.

Sunday December 21 @ 4pm: Winter Solstice Posada for Alex Nieto at 24th and Mission in San Francisco.

To repeat: the second assembly will take place at the Omni Oakland Commons on Sunday, December 28 @ 2pm.

Occupy Oakland General Assembly @ Omni Collective
Dec 28 @ 4:00 pm – 5:15 pm

For the rest of 2014 GA will meet at the Omni Collective basement at its regular time, 4PM Sunday, beginning November 30th.

The Occupy Oakland General Assembly generally meets Sundays, at 4 PM at Oscar Grant Plaza amphitheater at 14th Street & Broadway, often on the steps of City Hall. “If it is raining (as in RAINING, not just misting) at 4:00 PM we meet in the basement of the Omni Commons, 4799 Shattuck Ave, Oakland  Directions

We have met on a continuous basis for more than three years! 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.

The bulk of the work of Occupy Oakland does NOT happen in the General Assembly. It happens in various committees, caucuses, and loosely associated groups whose representatives voluntarily come to the GA and report on past and future actions. 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.

Proposal for Prison Noise Demos Across North America on New Year’s Eve

… we organize noise demonstrations every New Year’s Eve outside the walls of prisons,
jails, and immigrant detention centers. Sometimes these are the facilities
where specific comrades are held and sometimes these are facilities in which
social prisoners and rebels unknown to us have been left to rot. Either way,
we use our voices, banners, sound systems, instruments, and fireworks to
remind prisoners that they are never alone.
