Dec 18 @ 3:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Celebrate a “Free Speech Day” in San Leandro. There is a huge Xmas tree by City Hall, in front of the police department, so I’m inviting people to stop by, and speak out about any matter at all they want to. We’ll have a camera for anyone who wants to be filmed and put on youtube. Guy Fawkes masks welcome.

San Leandro is considering taking possession of a tank for their police.  Come and tell San Leandro what you think of that…

Umbrella March: #BlackLivesMatter @ Oscar Grant Plaza
Dec 18 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Too many times movements dies and voices aren’t heard because the weather isn’t as pretty. Well, it’s an ugly world we live in and we have to be willing to sometimes do things that are hard and face ugly things.

When the rain comes, people go in their houses, let us not forget about those who cannot go home because their lives have been stolen in this violent police state.

Come rain. sleet, hail or snow; #BlackLivesMatter and we must not let that be forgotten just because of some much needed rain. Bring your umbrellas out, network with one another, build up the community we want to save and march side by side in solidarity with one another & in solidarity with those around the world fighting for a better world.

Wear all Black because #BlackLivesMatter.

Bay Area Legal Observer and Know Your Rights Workshop in Support of the #BlackLivesMatter Movement @ Eastside Arts Alliance
Dec 21 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Come learn about police tactics and human rights obligations, what to look out for and how to best record evidence of police misconduct in support of #BlackLivesMatter demonstrations against state-sanctioned police brutality and systemic anti-black racism.

Legal observers play a crucial role monitoring and reporting on police behavior at demonstrations and other protest events by protecting and asserting civil and political rights.

The National Lawyers Guild (NLG) Legal Observer program is part of a comprehensive system of legal support designed to enable people to express their political views as fully as possible without unconstitutional disruption or interference by the police and with the fewest possible consequences from the criminal justice system.

Please review the Legal Observer Manual (located at http://www.nlg.org/sites/default/files/LO_Manual.pdf) prior to attending the workshop.

Event Organizers and Supporters:
– The United People of Color Caucus (TUPOCC) of the NLG
– #BlackLivesMatter Bay Area
– National Lawyers Guild of San Francisco (NLGSF)
