STRIKE DEBT BAY AREA ANNOUNCES OAKLAND’S FIRST DEBTORS’ ASSEMBLY @ Eastside Arts Alliance | Oakland | California | United States
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.

This diffuse invasion insinuates itself into our daily life : the social networks or the connected objects are the most blatant examples. Facebook, the most popular social network, analyzes the information, the links and the photos posted by its members to adapt advertisements for the users. “Smartphones” are of fabulous tools : we receive the advertisements of the store near which we pass, we take a photo during the last barbecue between … Continued

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
