Evictions and destruction of people’s belonging began yesterday, December 9th.
In 2005, Casino San Pablo promised to provide good jobs with good benefits. The Casino made $200 million a year in 2011-2012 – but its workers have had a wage freeze for 4 years, and more and more of them are working part time with no benefits!
Casino San Pay-LOW has BROKEN ITS PROMISES!
Come present the Casino with the WORST BOSS OF THE YEAR award – and a stocking of coal!

Union Garden Work Party
with UNITE HERE 2850, Planting Justice, and MG!
at the Home of Isidoro Saravia-Ramos
Isidoro singing a song of struggle on the land we’ll be cultivating!
Join UNITE HERE 2850, Planting Justice, and Movement Generation in planting a “Union Garden” at the home of UNITE HERE 2850 member and Casino San Pablo dishwasher, Isidoro Saravia-Ramos.
Despite the fact that the Casino brings in over $200 million in revenue, the average Casino worker only earns $9.60/hour and hasn’t received a raise in 4 years. Workers are forced to work in a smoke-filled environment and most don’t receive health insurance. While workers continue their struggle for fairness inside the casino, workers and neighbors are joining together to build community and reclaim our own health and labor.
In inviting folks to his home to plant a garden, Isidoro said: “I am very excited to build a garden with my fellow unions members, my family, and my community. By working together on the land, we will harvest justice.”
Bring work clothes, sturdy shoes, a water bottle, and any food you want to share (to supplement the carne asada / BBQ we’ll do for lunch).
Please RSVP to email@example.com.

The Long Haul Infoshop will be showing the documentary ‘Soweto to Berkeley’ this week, and is welcoming anti-Apartheid activists to speak.
From Soweto to Berkeley
Documentary (1987), 50 min, dir. Scott Wiseman
“Soweto to Berkeley” explores the student protests and debates at UC Berkeley in the 1980s which led to the Board of Regents decision to withdraw $3.1 billion in funds from companies doing business in South Africa. With the students’ tactics including occupations and direct actions, their organizing efforts, and their successes and failures, still resonate today.
Discussion to follow. Folks who were involved in the anti-apartheid movement in the 1980s are invited to attend and speak about their experiences.
This will be the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Federal Reserve. Stayed tuned for details.
