Livable Wage Assembly 2:00 am
Livable Wage Assembly @ California Nurses Association Hall
Mar 1 @ 2:00 am – 4:30 am
Livable Wage Assembly @ California Nurses Association Hall | Oakland | California | United States
Oakland thinks a ‘living wage’ is $13.45/hr, but is unwilling to have it apply to anyone but Port Workers (and then some of their subcontractors violate the law and don’t pay it!) The President just called for an increase in the national ‘minimum wage’ … to a shitty $9.00/hr. That’s completely ridiculous, but it means the issue is in the air now. Let’s talk about what we can take to get a real livable wage for all workers in Oakland. Come join us – the Occupy Oakland Labor Solidarity Committee … Continued

On Saturday, February 2nd, Strike Debt Bay Area will host Oakland’s first Debtors’ Assembly. As individuals, families, and communities, most of us are drowning in debt for the basic things we need to live, including housing, education, and health care. Even those of us who do not have personal debt are affected by predatory lending. Our essential public services are cut because our cities and towns are held hostage by the same big banks that have been bailed out by our government. All of us are outraged that big banks … Continued

Feb 8 @ 1:00 am – 2:30 am
On Jan. 24 at 24th and Mission Sts., the Mission community witnessed the brutal beating of an 18-year-old African American CCSF student, Kevin Clark, by SFPD.

Within the next few weeks, one of the worst banks we know is trying to foreclose on three homeowners–Gaylynne, a laid-off OUSD educator; Jill–a single mother, working finally after a long bout of unemployment; and Gloria, a 78 year old woman with no place else to go; and Carnell and his family a laid-off Auto Worker. Tell the bank that we will not accept this–putting people out of their homes rather than working with them to reach an affordable mortgage and market-rate principal is inexcusable!

One year since the Sanford, Florida, cops walked Zimmerman into and out of the police station letting him go free, citing Florida’s racist “Stand Your Ground” law.
