NO ARREST? NO ELECT! Pasta Feed Protest. @ Santa Rosa Veterans Menorial Bldg
Dec 3 @ 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm

Facebook Event & RSVP.

Jill Ravitch is the District Attorney for Sonoma County, where Andy Lopez was murdered by Deputy Gelhaus. Gelhaus has not yet been indicted for his crime.

—–

We will protest at a Campaign fundraiser for District Attorney Ravitch’s re-election. Here we will make our presence known!

We will not stand by while Ravitch refuses to do her job. She must uphold her sworn oath to uphold the law. She must do right by her community by fulfilling her sacred duty to protect and serve the citizens of Sonoma County. She must arrest Gelhaus immediately!

There will be another event, Light Up the Night for Andy Lopez, at 8:00 PM.

LIGHT UP THE NIGHT FOR ANDY LOPEZ @ Old Court House Square
Dec 3 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Facebook Event & RSVP.

This is a march scheduled to take place on the 3rd of December, starting at 8:00pm. We will rally at The old court house square, and march up Santa Rosa to the Sheriffs dept. (unless people within the group “action for andy lopez” would like to start at a different location. This is Your march. This is Andy’s march so all input is welcome.. This is intended to be a peaceful action, but also an action to let the city of Santa Rosa, as well as the Sonoma County Sheriff that we will not let up, and that we will be heard. December 3rd should be a historic day in Santa Rosa.

There is also an earlier event “No arrest=No Elect” taking place at 4:30pm. This is a protest that will be held at the location of the District Attorney’s fund raiser, which she is having to raise money for a re-election campaign. Most of us will be attending this action, and then follow it up with “light up the night for Andy Lopez.

There are several reasons we are calling for a march in the dark. 1) This will cause the same police who are killing us, to spend the same money they purchase weapons and bullets to kill us with, on observing our march. 2) The 2nd reason we are calling for a march in the dark is because we are living in DARK DARK times. We live in a world, where a thug with a piece of tin on his blue shirt, can murder a 13 year old boy in cold blood, yet suffer no consequence. Because of this darkness in which we will endure, we will march in the dark……

Deputy Gelhaus may think that he killed Andy Lopez…… but he did not. Andy lives on now and forever in all of us who have been touched by this tragedy. Andy’s light will not go out, and we will be his light,3) The fear factor of this gang called the police, needs to be removed from the youth EVERYWHERE . This will help build these kids up, just as all previous and future actions that they take part in will. on December the 3rd….. We suggest all participants where black. This is not only as a symbol of mourning, but also a show of unity. We will be one on this night. To Andy’s Friends, schoolmates, peers, etc…. Ride your bikes, skate boards, scooters, or walk. Just be there. If you have a flashlight bring it. Bring pots, pans, bullhorns, or anything else to make yourself heard. Together we will bring light to the darkness in the Name of Andy Lopez.

Rally to Reduce Bay Area Greenhouse Emissions & Air Quality Board Meeting @ Bay Area Air Quality Mgmt District Board Meeting
Dec 4 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

Please mark your calendar to join Communities for a Better Environment, the Sunflower Alliance, the Richmond Environmental Justice Coalition, Idle No More, 350BayArea, Occupy, and many others for a rally at the Bay Area Air Quality Management District Board Meeting. We will rally at 9:00 a.m. and then go inside for the Board meeting at 9:45 a.m.

What is at Stake?

The Board will receive a report, that we have requested, to address the linkages of all of the Bay Area proposed Crude by Rail/Refinery Projects. We believe staff will try and downplay the connections and deny the Oil Industry has a Master Plan for the Bay Area Refinery Corridor.

Staff has been caving into the Oil Industry on the Regional Green House Gas Emissions Rule. It is imperative we let the Board members know the community is deeply engaged in these issues.

We need to show support to our allies on the Board who want to see Bay Area Green House Gas Emissions reduced substantially.

How Can You Help?

Contact me, Andrés Soto (andres@cbecal.org, or at 510.282.5363) and let me know if you would like to help plan the rally. This should be a relatively simple affair.
Pass the word to your friends, family and allies who are concerned about Climate Change and have them join us and/or join in the planning. I will schedule a planning meeting as soon as I hear from a critical mass of folks. It would be great to have our signs and banners for this one as well as a solid media strategy.

A delegation of us from Richmond will arrive by BART. We will meet at Richmond BART at 8:00 a.m. to catch the train and get off at the Civic Center BART Station.

Low Pay is Not Okay Rally @ McDonalds
Dec 5 @ 11:30 am – 12:30 pm

LowPayIsNotOkay website (find an event).

Against all odds, Fast Food Workers are organizing. In one lunch hour, you could create a tipping point for their campaign.

A whopping 52% of fast-food employees’ families are forced to rely on public assistance to put food on the table or see a doctor. That means American taxpayers are putting about $7 billion a year into fast food corporate profits. Workers are taking an enormous risk — for all of us. They’re asking us to give just one lunch hour to show solidarity and help spread their movement to new cities. Search for a rally near you and sign up to attend or to help organize.

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!

Community March For Andy Lopez @ Santa Rosa City Hall
Dec 20 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

On October 22nd, Andy Lopez, a 13 year old boy was shot and killed by deputy Erik Gelhaus,(a supposed firearms expert that writes columns for many militia magazines) who says he mistook the toy gun that Andy was carrying for a real rifle. The deputy ended up shooting 8 rounds – 7 hitting and killing Andy. 2 months later, no justice has been served, initial findings from the Sheriff’s Department show that the deputy acted according to procedure in his use of deadly force, and on December 10th, Gelhaus returned to administrative work at the Sheriff’s Department.

Don’t Steal our Postal Services Rally! @ Staples, Downtown Berkeley
Dec 21 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Don’t  Steal our Postal Services Rally

In front of the Staples store

2352 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley

The Berkeley Post Office and post offices all over the US are under threat of being fraudulently sold!

In a new attack, US postal services have been snuck into 84 Staples stores all over the country – including Berkeley.  Postal services are being provided by low-wage Staples employees, not living-wage Postal professionals.

Please join us to:

  • Oppose privatization of the US Postal Services and all public resources. Privatization brings higher prices and worse quality.
  • Oppose union busting – replacing union jobs with low paying jobs that offer poor or no benefits.  

Non-union pay lowers everyone’s standard of living (USPS compensation $20-$30/hr + benefits. Staples $8 – $12/hr, few if any benefits)

 Sponsored by Berkeley Post Office Defenders.  Supported by Strike Debt Bay Area.

Occupy The Fed. @ Federal Reserve Building, near Embarcadero
Dec 23 @ 3:00 pm – 9:00 pm

This will be the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Federal Reserve.

Monday evening from 6 – 9, OccupyForum will hold its meeting at the FED (101 Market) and have a panel of speakers.

There are some Scheduled events.

5:30 – anti-corporate caroling

6-6:30 – Illuminator will project a message onto the Fed,  also the Petaluminator, possibly Light Brigade
Please bring flashlights and other ways to “shed light” on the FED

6:30 – 7:00 – Occupy Forum, topic the Federal Reserve and alternatives (see below)

 And other ideas:

- Chalkupy: Ideas for a giant monopoly board are forming, also everyone can write messaging, answer the question “Why are you FED UP with the monetary system?” (or other messaging)

- Blankets: We’re asking everyone who can to drop by a Goodwill or Salvation Army or thrift store and get a blanket (they’re cheap! a few bucks)… The idea is to keep warm while we’re there and then leave them in the free pile for folks who need them.

- Caroling (with words to describe the FED provided)

 

 photo fedup_zps82e22e9d.jpg

The FEDERAL RESERVE BANK (commonly called the Fed) and Wall Street banks create just about all the money we use every day. Most people think that the Fed is an agency of the Federal Government. But it’s not. It’s 100% owned by the largest private banks in the US. The Fed uses its incredible power to decide how much new money to create and, more importantly, where to spend it, to benefit the Wall Street banks.

Since most of us think new money is generated by government, we would also expect that money to be directed toward things that benefit all of us such as highways and other infrastructure, education, health care and social security.

However, all money the government spends has to be borrowed at interest from the banks and the Fed. The banks and the Fed create this money, instead, by investing in areas that will provide them with maximum profits – usually wars, the coal and oil industries and real estate. This results in crashes like the current one which started in 2008, and depressions, and no consideration is given to the moral or environmental costs of these investments. Profits over people as usual.

The Fed operates largely in secret, and is not required to be accountable to anyone. There has never been a proper audit of the Federal Reserve Bank. The power to create money is arguably the most important single power in the US economy and yet the people have no control over it!

It’s time to shine a light on the workings of the Fed. We need to start discussing solutions like making the Fed accountable and handing over the power of money creation to the Federal Government! This could be the single most powerful way to create a more democratic economy that serves the interests of all of us – not just a few who profit immensely off of our labor.

Join us this Monday, Dec. 23 at 5pm on the Federal Reserve’s 100th Birthday when we will Illuminate the Fed!

Speakers will include Occupy activist Jane Smith, who will provide us with details on how the Fed works (or doesn’t work), and how we can take control of money creation away from big banks. The Illuminators will be there to project images and messages onto the FED building and there will be other events as well, listed below. Bring flashlights! Bring blankets! Bring ideas for chalking: “Why are you FED UP?”

Protest against Korean Government Repression. Stop Mass Firings of South Korean Railway Workers! @ South Korean Consulate
Dec 27 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Subject: Urgent Action: Protest against Korean Government Repression on Dec 27 Noon

SF Rally to Defend the Right to Strike! Free All Arrested Strikers!
Stop Mass Firings of South Korean Railway Workers!
Victory to the KCTU General Strike!

8,565 Korail workers have been suspended and their union offices raided because of their strike action against privatization which began on December 9, 2013. This is not the first attack by the Korean
government on the labor movement. Teachers’ unions have been threatened with being banned and workers have been sued personally for going on strike causing personal bankruptcy and suicides.

The Transport Workers Solidarity Committee TWSC has initiated the call for a solidarity rally and labor/community delegation to go to the Korean Consulate in San Francisco and submit a statement
opposing the suspension of Korea Rail Workers, the attack on their union and in support of their struggle against privatization. Similar schemes also threaten transit workers and public workers in the Bay Area including the ongoing attack on ATU 192 AC Transit workers and BART ATU 1555, SEIU 1021 and AFSCME 3993. This attack was directly connected to international companies like Veolia who are privatizing transit services in complicity whith state governments run by both Democrat and Republican Parties, are pushing to outlaw strikes and collective bargaining.

We urge all transportation workers, public workers, trade unionists and all workers to join us in the action in solidarity with our Brothers and Sisters in Korea and against the action of the Korean Railroad corporation (KORAIL) supported by the Korean government. This rally is also endorsed by the United Public Workers For Action www.upwa.info

If you would like to endorse this action please contact Transport Workers Solidarity Committee www.transportworkers.org (415)282-1908

Jan 1 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Come out and march on January 1st at 3pm starting at 24th street BART Plaza and ending at 16th street BART.

“On January 1st Mission residents and agitators want to ring in the New Year with a big “fuck you!” to the San Francisco Police Department. The elevated pig presence in the neighborhood is unavoidable and many have already felt its effects. In November, four Valencia Gardens residents were attacked and then arrested by SFPD officers. The expansion of police surveillance at the 16th street BART plaza has lead to increased harassment of young people of color, homeless folks, and sex workers.”

Mothers in White: Justice 4 Andy Lopez @ County Building, Rm 100A
Jan 7 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Mothers in White will pleasd for justice for Andy at the January 7, Tuesday, meeting of the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors, at 1 p.m.

A bi-lingual flyer about the event includes a photo of Andy’s parents Sujey and Rodrigo over his coffin. Mrs. Lopez apparently plans to attend the event and may speak to the supervisors as a mother whose innocent son was killed by law enforcement.

“Every member of the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors is staring into a moral crisis!” reads the flyer. “What kind of ‘policy’ permits the brutal killing of a 13-year-old child who committed NO CRIME?” it asks. It poses the questions, “To what length would you go if your innocent child or grandchild was brutally murdered?”

The committee reported its intention to “create a dramatic visual impact” of at least 50 Mothers in White, as well as their allies, including men in white and the group Women in Black, which has appeared on street corners around the world to bear witness to those killed by violence.

People are invited to bring mirrors to hold up to the supervisors to examine themselves. Supervisor Mike McGuire apparently said that Andy’s death was a time to reflect in the mirror. This peaceful event intends such a reflection.

The color white was selected because it was Andy’s favorite color. White is not the absence of color, but the mixture of all colors, which is what this mass movement for justice seeks.

Thurs. Jan. 9th SF Bay Area

 

WIRELESS MICROWAVE RADIATION KILLS

Thomas E. Wheeler, recently appointed by President Obama as Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will be speaking in Mountain View and Oakland, CA on Thursday, January 9.  Join planned protests and speak out against increasing wireless health damage.

Fox in Charge of the Hen House: From 1992- 2004, Wheeler headed the wireless industry lobbying group, the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA).  During his stint at the CTIA, his own scientists told him that cell phones were causing brain tumors. He buried the data and fired the scientists.

Wheeler buried the truth.  Now, we are burying the victims.

Mountain View Event

Wheeler will be speaking in Silicon Valley at the Computer History Museum – 1401 N. Shoreline Blvd. in Mountain View. Protest outside starts at 11am, event is from 12-1pm (it is a free Commonwealth Club event and is now open to the general public.) You must sign up in advance here.

Click “register” first. Where it asks for your membership number simply enter “non-member.”

WE NEED YOU TO COME WITH SIGNS AND YOUR VOICES! We would also like to see babies, toddlers, preschoolers, teens, etc at both events. A funeral procession will be held for the victims of wireless technology. Dress in Black!  Media will be there and we need to get our message across.

Oakland Event

Wheeler will be speaking at the Preservation Park Niles Hall at 1233 Preservation Park Way in Oakland at 7 pm. We will hold a rally at the main entrance on 12th St. starting at 6pm.  Tickets to this free event are sold out but the public is free to attend the rally- more information here.

Again, bring your signs, voices, children, grandchildren and friends. Media will be there also. A funeral procession will be held for the victims of wireless technology. Dress in Black!

What we want:

  • adequate health warnings on wireless devices
  • a complete ban on wireless radiation in K-12 schools
  • a recall on ‘smart meters’
  • repeal of the 1996 Telecom Act
  • defense of our copper-based landline network
  • research-based wireless health standards
  • Chair Wheeler to step down from the FCC
  • Most of all, we want people to be told the truth- WIRELESS KILLS.

Please join us and spread the word to as many as possible.  We look forward to seeing you there!  If you have any questions about these events, or you are a member of the news media please call 925-285-5437 or 360-201-3959

Thank you so very much & we hope to see you all next week,
