Court Support for Mike & Casey, Liberty City Arrestees. Pack the Court! @ Wiley Manuel Courthouse, Rm 112
Apr 29 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

“Today, Casey and I had court for our arrests at Liberty City. Trial begins April 29, 9 am, room 112.

We want to pack the courtroom. What is at stake is the freedom to protest without government being able to say “that’s not a protest.” We want to challenge the ability of the state to use 647e, illegal lodging, in the commons. The law plainly states “without the permission of the owner” in it. Yet, this law has been used on public property to prevent homeless people from sheltering themselves. This law is used by cities to steal people’s possessions as “evidence of lodging” and once confiscated, are destroyed.”

Omni Fair and Panel Discussion @ Omni Commons
Apr 29 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Birdhouse Art Collective, in conjunction with Open Engagement, will be hosting an interactive, all-day art fair celebrating a variety of arts collectives and other collectively organized, non hierarchical organizations within the Omni Commons and in the Bay Area.

Presentations from within the Omni will include ferrofluid demonstrations from Counter Culture Labs’ monthly event The Art of Science/The Science of Art, a film screening and lens dissection by Liberated Lens, a multimedia installation about the Zapantera Embroidery Project by the Chiapas Support Committee, medicine making demonstrations by Buried Seeds, a demonstration open wireless internet systems by Sudo Room, and a poetry table by small press Timeless Infinite Light. There will also be presentations from the student-run alternative art education program DIY MFA and the art center for artists with disabilities The New Space Studio.

The panel discussion will feature members from local arts collectives including 924 Gilman, Birdhouse Art Collective, Black Salt Collective, Design Action Collective and Qulture Collective. Panel participants will discuss the impact they make in their communities and the ins and outs of starting, running and maintaining an arts collective in our extremely expensive time and place.

The fair will run from 10am to 5pm, with fair booths active from 10am to 3pm and the panel discussion beginning at 3:30pm.

Oakland Justice Coalition Ballot Measure Canvass @ Eastmont Mall
Apr 30 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Join us to gather signatures for our three endorsed ballot initiatives! We’ll do a short training on how to get signatures and then hit the streets. Bring a car if you are able!

We’re working to get these three measures on the ballot:

From the Coalition for Police Accountability: Measure X turns the current Citizens’ Police Review Board into a Police Commission that has power to approve police policies and discipline officers who are found guilty of misconduct.

From the Oakland Tenants Union: Oakland’s “Renters Upgrade” would expand Oakland’s current “Just Cause for Eviction” law and provide greater ability for the city to enforce existing laws amidst a wave of unfair evictions and widespread harassment as demand for housing in Oakland grows.

From Oakland Livable Wage Assembly: A Minimum Wage/Fair Scheduling ordinance that will raise Oakland’s minimum wage to $14/hr in 2016 and $20/hr by 2020, as well as implement fair scheduling similar to San Francisco’s recent ordinance and mandate enforcement of both.

These three measures represent a people’s legislative agenda, enacted through direct democracy at the ballot box. The Oakland Justice Coalition invites anyone who is concerned about Oakland’s housing crisis, police repression of communities of color and rampant income inequality to join us in building a grassroots movement for social, racial, economic and environmental justice.

MOVED TO NEXT WEEK: Strike Debt Bay Area Meeting: Debt Resistance is NOT Futile! @ World Ground Cafe
Apr 30 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Strike Debt is building a debt resistance movement. We believe that most individual debt is illegitimate and unjust. Most of us fall into debt because we are increasingly deprived of the means to acquire the basic necessities of life: health care, education, and housing. Because we are forced to go into debt simply in order to live, we think it is right and moral to resist it.
Come get connected with SDBA’s projects!

Strike Debt Bay Area is an offshoot of Occupy Oakland and Strike Debt, itself an offshoot of Occupy Wall Street.

Strike Debt – Principles of Solidarity

Strike Debt is building a debt resistance movement. We believe that most individual debt is illegitimate and unjust. Most of us fall into debt because we are increasingly deprived of the means to acquire the basic necessities of life: health care, education, and housing. Because we are forced to go into debt simply in order to live, we think it is right and moral to resist it.

We also oppose debt because it is an instrument of exploitation and political domination. Debt is used to discipline us, deepen existing inequalities, and reinforce racial, gendered, and other social hierarchies. Every Strike Debt action is designed to weaken the institutions that seek to divide us and benefit from our division. As an alternative to this predatory system, Strike Debt advocates a just and sustainable economy, based on mutual aid, common goods, and public affluence.

Strike Debt is committed to the principles and tactics of political autonomy, direct democracy, direct action, creative openness, a culture of solidarity, and commitment to anti-oppressive language and conduct. We struggle for a world without racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and all forms of oppression.

Strike Debt holds that we are all debtors, whether or not we have personal loan agreements. Through the manipulation of sovereign and municipal debt, the costs of speculator-driven crises are passed on to all of us. Though different kinds of debt can affect the same household, they are all interconnected, and so all household debtors have a common interest in resisting.

Strike Debt engages in public education about the debt-system to counteract the self-serving myth that finance is too complicated for laypersons to understand. In particular, it urges direct action as a way of stopping the damage caused by the creditor class and their enablers among elected government officials. Direct action empowers those who participate in challenging the debt-system.

Strike Debt holds that we owe the financial institutions nothing, whereas, to our friends, families and communities, we owe everything. In pursuing a long-term strategy for national organizing around this principle, we pledge international solidarity with the growing global movement against debt and austerity.

Points of Unity

UPHOLD WORKER AND STUDENT RIGHTS
We demand respect for all workers’ rights: living wages and employee benefits, and an end to labor trafficking and wage theft. We demand empowering and free education, including ethnic studies programs, and for campus Graduate Student Workers to earn fair wages.

LEGALIZATION FOR ALL UNDOCUMENTED MIGRANTS, IMMEDIATE END TO DEPORTATIONS
We demand a clear path to legalization for all and an end to deportations and detentions. Regardless of skill, background, history of criminalization, sexuality, or gender identity, all migrants and their families have the right to freedom of movement and to live together in dignity.

SUPPORT THE STRUGGLE OF BLACK COMMUNITIES AGAINST STATE VIOLENCE IN THE U.S.
We march for Black Lives, Black Power, and Black Resistance. We support Black-led struggles against state violence and for self-determination. We stand with trans people of color against state violence.

BRING OUR LOVED ONES HOME FROM PRISONS, JAILS, AND DETENTION CENTERS
We march against all forms of state violence, including those inherent to systems of policing, imprisonment, and surveillance that primarily target Black, Brown, and poor communities. We march for the freedom of our loved ones locked in cages and for the families of those killed by the police.

BUILD AND DEFEND STRONG AND HEALTHY COMMUNITIES
We demand access to meaningful work, guaranteed and comfortable housing, free and sustainable healthcare, and environmentally sustainable communities. We demand real solutions to reverse the effects of climate change that endanger us all globally but especially poor people and people of color.

END U.S. MILITARY AGGRESSION & CAPITALIST POLICIES THAT FORCE MIGRATION
More than 200 million people have been forced to leave their country of origin because of war, environmental degradation and unequal trade policies. We say: No More! End US military aid. End US imperialism and support for colonial governments.

Occupy Oakland General Assembly @ Oscar Grant Plaza or basement of Omni basement if raining
May 1 @ 4:00 pm – 5:15 pm

The Occupy Oakland General Assembly meets every Sunday at 4 PM at Oscar Grant Plaza amphitheater at 14th Street & Broadway near the steps of City Hall. If it is raining (as in RAINING, not just misting) at 4:00 PM we meet in the basement of the Omni Collective, 4799 Shattuck Ave., Oakland.  On every last Sunday we meet a little earlier at 3 PM to have a community potluck to which all are welcome.

ooGAOO General Assembly has met on a continuous basis for over four years! Our General Assembly is a participatory gathering of Oakland community members and beyond, where everyone who shows up is treated equally . Our Assembly and the process we have collectively cultivated strives to reach agreement while building community.

At the GA committees, caucuses, and loosely associated groups whose representatives come voluntarily report on past and future actions, with discussion. We encourage everyone participating in the Occupy Oakland GA to be part of at least one associated group, but it is by no means a requirement. If you like, just come and hear all the organizing being done! Occupy Oakland encourages political activity that is decentralized and welcomes diverse voices and actions into the movement.

General Assembly Standard Agenda

  1. Welcome & Introductions
  2. Reports from Committees, Caucuses, & Independent Organizations
  3. Announcements
  4. (Optional) Discussion Topic

Fracking SHOWDOWN at the Planning Commission
May 2 @ 5:45 pm – 8:00 pm

Guess what, oil industry: the game is up. The SHOWDOWN is on!

We’ve been pushing to ban fracking and other extreme oil extraction methods in Alameda County for years. At every turn, the oil industry has thrown up roadblocks. But the people of Alameda County have a message: we’re tired of waiting. We demand the strongest ban on fracking and extreme extraction possible. It’s the only thing that will protect our water, our families, and our health. And we won’t be silent.

Join us for the most critical hearing of the campaign yet: a showdown at the Planning Commission. You bet the industry will be there in force, trying to water down our hard-fought protections. They’re a formidable opponent. But we’re stronger. We have people power on our side. Now’s the time to show it.

Occupy Forum: Move to Amend
May 2 @ 6:00 pm – 9:30 pm

OccupyForum presents…

(please note location !)

Information, discussion & community! Monday Night Forum!!

Occupy Forum is an opportunity for open and respectful dialogue on all sides of these critically important issues!

Move To Amend:
Waging Non-Violent Revolution through Constitutional Amendment
With David Cobb

 

Corporations do not merely exercise power, they rule over us. The wealthy elite have stolen our sacred right to self-government, and the illegitimate, court-created legal doctrines of “corporate constitutional rights” and “money is political speech” legalize the theft.

All across the country ordinary folks are crying ENOUGH!!!! Come hear how you can get involved in a concrete campaign to abolish these doctrines via a constitutional amendment. Move To Amend’s strategy incorporates art and culture, grassroots organizing and educating, resolutions and initiatives, and we are beginning to explore direct action strategies.

Come help us!

The session will be facilitated by David Cobb, a people’s lawyer and an engaged citizen. Cobb has sued corporate polluters, lobbied elected officials, run for office himself, and been arrested for non-violent civil disobedience. He ran for Attorney General of Texas pledging to use the office to revoke the charters of corporations that violate health, safety and environmental protection laws. In 2004 he was the Green Party nominee for President of the US, and filed for the Ohio Recount that helped to launch a movement for election integrity and against the use of electronic voting machines.

Time will be allotted for Q&A, discussion and announcements.

Wheelchair accessible.

Oakland City Council Action on Coal @ Oakland City Hall
May 3 @ 6:30 pm – 11:00 pm

Event: No Coal in Oakland

Come to the May 3 meeting of the Oakland City Council to insist that the Council hire public health experts as an essential component of the review of the health and safety risks of shipping coal through Oakland’s bulk terminal.

No Coal in Oakland has been concerned about the Council’s intention to hire Environmental Science Associates (ESA).  At this point, our best hope is that they also hire Health Impact Partners (HIP) to analyze the health and safety concerns documented in the evidence.  HIP is a national leader in the field of health impact assessment based here in Oakland and would work with PSE Healthy Energy, an Oakland-based energy science and policy institute, and a panel of Bay Area public health experts with a variety of backgrounds, including environmental health (including air quality, water quality and noise), environmental justice, occupational health and medicine, and epidemiology.

By contrast, ESA is a firm known for producing reports favoring developers.  It is notorious in the Bay Area for writing the Environmental Impact Review that gave the green light to Valero’s contested crude-by-rail project in Benicia.  Many critics, from environmental and community groups to the California’s attorney general, have called that review inadequate because it fails to fully report the many negative impacts that project would cause.

Activists question ESA’s commitment to a fair review of the health and safety dangers of coal.  The team ESA proposes to do the review doesn’t include a single public health expert. No Coal in Oakland is insisting that the city also hire public health experts to summarize and synthesize the information received at a hearing on the impacts coal shipments would have on public health and safety in Oakland.

On February 16, at the urging of the Mayor who is strongly opposed to coal, the Council dropped a proposal to hire ESA.  No Coal in Oakland was hopeful that the idea of using ESA was dead.  Now a revised proposal from ESA seems headed for approval and needs to be supplemented with analysis by public health experts.  Strong public pressure is needed to tell the Council to hire HIP for this essential component of the review, and make sure the investigation of evidence is valid and unbiased. Come help push the No Coal in Oakland campaign over the finish line.

HOW YOU CAN HELP:  SIGN UP TO SPEAK OR CEDE TIME

The City Council allows public input on major agenda items such as coal, but each speaker only gets one minute to speak.  You can sign up to speak and then yield your time to someone else so that a speaker who needs three or four minutes can use your time.   We always need some people who have signed up to cede their time to others.

To get started, please use this link to sign up:

SIGN ME UP!

On the form enter your name, the date of 5/3/16, ‘coal’ in the “Item Number”, ‘City Council’ as the choice for “Comm/CouncilName.”

Finally enter ‘Yes’ as the choice for “Wish to Speak Concerning this Item,” if you wish to speak yourself.  You can also enter the name of the person you want to cede time to so that that person can have more time for full expression.  You can also cede your time by giving it up at the meeting even if you entered in the online form that you wish to speak.

After entering your speaker card form, you will get a confirmation number.  Bring this with you to the meeting.

North America Premiere of Drone Whistleblower Doc NATIONAL BIRD @ Pacific Film Archive
May 4 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

We are pleased to announce the North American Premiere of our feature documentary National Bird at the Tribeca Film Festival in April and the West Coast Premiere at the San Francisco International Film Festival in May.

National Bird follows the journeys of three whistleblowers who are determined to break the silence around the secret U.S. drone war. Their stories take dramatic turns, leading one of the veterans to Afghanistan where she learns about one of the worst U.S. airstrikes to have impacted civilians. For the first time, the Afghan survivors, men and women, speak openly about what has happened to them.

National Bird was made by a team of mostly women – in front of the camera and behind.

We would love to share our film with you on the big screen and hope you can make it to one of our screenings. Each will be followed by a Q&A with protagonist Lisa and director Sonia Kennebeck.

Oakland Privacy Working Group Meeting: Fighting Against the Surveillance State. @ Omni Commons
May 4 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
  • DAC Opposition photo no-surveillance-city-council_zps7d741c77.jpgJoin the Oakland Privacy Working Group to organize against the surveillance state,  against Urban Shield, and to advocate for privacy and surveillance regulation ordinances to be passed around the Bay Area, especially by Alameda County and by the Oakland City Council.
  • We are also engaged in the fight against Predictive Policing and other “pre-crime” and “thought-crime” abominations, drones, improper use of police body cameras, requirements for “backdoors” to your cellphone and against other invasions of privacy by our benighted City, County, State and Federal Governments.

OPWG originally came together to fight against the Domain Awareness Center (DAC), Oakland’s citywide networked mass surveillance hub. OPWG was instrumental in stopping the DAC from becoming a city-wide spying network; its members helped draft the Privacy Policy that puts further restrictions on the now Port-restricted DAC, and made Oakland’s Advisory Privacy Committee to the City Council happen.  We were also the lead in having Alameda County pass the most comprehensive privacy and usage policy in the country for deployment of “Stingray” technology (cell phone interceptors).

We have presented our work at the recent RightsCon in San Francisco and will be doing so at Left Forum in New York City.

Stop by and learn how you can help guard our right not to be spied on by the government & if you are interested in joining the Oakland Privacy Working Group email listserv, send an email to:
