NET NEUTRALITY SUPPORTERS UNITE: Scheduled Day of Online Protest @ The Internet.
Jul 10 all-day

Tell The FCC and Public Servants The Internet Should Be OPEN

On July 10th, when public commenting ends for “Protecting and Promoting the Open Internet” we’re going to send a clear message

What we are looking to create and maintain is an internet that acts as a free speech zone, a horizontal space for communication and sharing of information, and a public commons. We want to maintain the internet as a network that allows all users equal access to speak and be heard. It is through this that the internet has supported marginalized groups, provided a communications platform for the world, and fostered innovations in technology and services.

Refinery Corridor Healing Walk (Last of Four) @ Lone Tree Point
Jul 12 @ 8:00 am – 4:30 pm

It’s time to transition to a fossil free future & stop the potentially explosive Bakken crude oil trains. Join us for the fourth of four healing walks along the refinery corridor in Northeast San Francisco Bay. We will begin at the Lone Tree Park (End of Parker Ave) in Rodeo and walk in prayer and conversation to the Chevron Refinery in Richmond. Please see here for full details, map, schedule, transportation, etc.

Native American elders and those in prayer will lead the walk, stopping to pray at certain places. The walk is approximately 13 miles with support vehicles so that walkers can rest whenever they would like. There are also several places where walkers can join the walk along the route – see map below.

Around the last mile, walkers will be encouraged to begin imagining their own communities beyond fossil fuel. Walkers will be invited to share those ideas with their own drawings on muslin at the end of the walk. The muslin squares will be sewn in to a quilt and shared publicly. Art from previous walks will be exhibited. Joining us? Please make sure to check back for more details no later than July 10.

SOLIDARITY MARCH: JUSTICE FOR MONIQUE @ Oscar Grant Plaza
Jul 19 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

We lost our beloved Monique to violence this past Thursday. Her life cut too short. She had many people who loved and supported her. She had her two babies, and many dreams and ambitions. She wanted to make a change in this world. And the impact she left, will never be forgotten.

Let’s March in solidarity, to show our support for MONIQUE and many other women we have lost due to violence.

We will march to the first stop where her first vigil was held in west Oakland Around 1pm. There, we can speak out for justice to be served and share memories about Monique, and how violence against women needs to stop.

Then March back around to OGP where we can all can eat, listen to music and make our presence known, and have another vigil for Monique.

We can all bring food, poster boards, markers, chalk, flags, music, and people who share the Love for Monique.

WE will be doing art projects in remembrance of Mo. So bring stuff! Any ideas are welcome to help make this a better event.

Invite anyone you know who would like to come and show support.
