Protest: Stop Detentions, Deportations & Murders of Immigrants! @ ICE Offices
Apr 1 @ 8:00 am – 11:00 am

Since October 2014 the bodies of 55 immigrants were found in the Rio Grande River Valley in Texas and 15 other bodies were pulled from the waters of the Rio Grande River.

These were people trying to cross one of the most militarized borders in the world.

Amilcar Perez-Lopez, Guatemalan immigrant was unjustly killed by SFPD on February 26.

Antonio Zambrano was brutally executed by Pasco, Washington police on February 10.

2059 immigrants were arrested nationwide by ICE agents in “Operation Cross Check”.

Action-oriented Anti-policing Study Group @ Omni Collective
Apr 1 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

We are having an orientation for our hands-on study group. The focus of the project is both analytical and activist. As a group, we will develop an understanding of the relationship between gentrification and police violence thru readings, workshops and discussions. At the same time, we will be developing and implementing strategies in our neighborhoods that seek to discourage other people that are new to Oakland from calling the cops. It will last about 3 months

We’re building a community wireless mesh network!

A wireless mesh network is a network where each computer acts as a relay to other computers, such that a network can stretch to cover entire cities. Our goal is to create such a free mesh network that is entirely controlled and operated by the community!

Want to help create an alternate means of digital communication that isn’t governed by for-profit internet service providers? Join us for the mesh hacknight!

We have crowdfunded the purchase of our first 100+ routers and are preparing to deploy the first nodes in Oakland. We need people with both technical and non-technical backgrounds to help with everything from local community involvement and crowdfunding to mounting wifi routers on buildings and developing software!

Last Thursdays are General Meetings for planning, strategy, and orientation for new folks.

March and Forum for Ayotzinapa
Apr 4 @ 1:30 pm – 6:00 pm

March and Forum for Ayotzinapa

Community March:
Mission and 16th Sts.
1:30pm- Danzantes welcome the community
2pm- Start of the rally
2:30pm- March starts towards 24th St.

Community Forum:
Buena Vista Horace Mann Elementary
3351 23rd St., between Bartlett and Valencia Sts.
4-6pm

Saturday, April 4th, San Francisco welcomes the families of the 43 students disappeared by the Mexican government this past September, 2014, joining with their demand for justice with their caravan throughout the US.

We are in solidarity with their struggle and welcome everyone to a community and family-friendly march from 16th St. to 24th St. on Saturday, April 4th. This march is called for 2pm and will arrive at Buena Vista Horace Mann (3351 23rd St.) where a community forum organized by KPOO, Radio Bilingüe and Rompeviento TV USA, will be held. Here, all attendees will learn about the atrocities committed by the Mexican State as well as the struggle for justice. Ayotzinapa is the most recent and horrific example of a State that exercises violence with impunity against its citizens and social justice fighters.

We also recognize our own experiences in the United States where police kill our people in the streets, just as the case of Almicar, or any other community, especially the Black community.

Its time to say, “Stop State-Sponsored Terror in the Mission, San Francisco, the Bay Area, California and throughout the United States! Justice for all victims of State violence! A State that disappears and murders its own citizens does not deserve to govern! The Mission stands with Ayotzinapa! Stop State-sponsored terror on both sides of the border!

Special thanks to the United Educators of San Francisco for their support in sponsoring this community event.

Initiated by:
Bay Area Committee in Solidarity with Ayotzinapa

Occupy Oakland General Assembly @ Oscar Grant Plaza
Apr 5 @ 7:00 am – 8:30 am

Our General Assembly is a participatory gathering of Oakland community members and beyond, where everyone who shows up is treated equally and has equal decision-making power. Occupy Oakland’s General Assembly uses a participatory decision-making process appropriately called, “Occupy Oakland’s Collective Decision-Making Process.” Our Assembly and the process we have collectively cultivated strives to reach agreement while building community.

Autonomous Action & the General Assembly
The bulk of the work of Occupy Oakland does NOT happen in the General Assembly. It happens in various committees, caucuses, and associated groups that report back to the general assembly. Everyone participating in Occupy Oakland should be part of at least one associated group. Occupy Oakland encourages autonomous actions that do not require consensus from the General Assembly. This encourages political activity that is decentralized and welcomes diverse voices and actions into the movement.

Livable Wage Assembly Planning Meeting for April 15th @ SEIU Local 1000 union hall, 2nd floor
Apr 9 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

OLWAwebThe Oakland Livable Wage Assembly builds community and power among those who seek higher wages and better work life conditions for area workers. We meet every second and fourth Tuesday of the month at the SEIU Local 1000 union hall, 1433 Webster Street, 2nd Floor in downtown Oakland. These assembly meetings occur from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm.

Our work together encompasses:

  • (1) the concerns of precarious, contingent and care workers;
  • (2) current campaigns to improve wages for low-wage workers; and
  • (3) efforts by unionized workers and unions to improve wages and quality of work life.

At this meeting we will be planning an action at OGP on April 15th (4/15 = FOR $15)  in tandem with other actions around the East Bay and converging on a huge FF15 rally to commence at 3:00 PM at UC Berkeley.

We share stories and information in an egalitarian and participatory way to build relationships and build the movement.

We look forward to learning with you and making change for the better. Please love and support one another. We have a duty to fight. We have a duty to win.

Yuvette Henderson Vigil and March @ Extra Space Storage
Apr 12 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Facebook event.

Vigil and march in loving memory of Yuvette Henderson. All aspects of the action are planned to be peaceful. This event is organized by the Anti-Police Terror Project with permission from the family of Yuvette Henderson. The APTP demands an open and public investigation, while knowing that a fair investigation will never occur if that investigation is left solely in the hands of the police. We have continued to make the following demands:

– Release of the video tapes that contain the shooting or any lead-up to the shooting of Yuvette Henderson

– Leave without pay for Michelle Shepherd and Warren Williams, the officers involved in the killing of Yuvette Henderson, while they are being investigated and, ultimately, the termination of Shepard and Williams from the Emeryville Police Department.

- The immediate return or destruction of all military styled weapons and accessories in the possession of the Emeryville Police Department and specifically the AR-15 rifles, like the one used to murder Justice 4 Yuvette Henderson -AR-15’s are a military-grade, automatic weapon; the same weapon used by the United States military in wars throughout the world.

– An account on what happened to Yuvette while in contact with Home Depot security, an explanation regarding how she sustained the head injury on Home Depot property, and a reason as to why she never saw the paramedics as a result of her head injury.

Justice 4 James Rivera: Oakland to Stockton. BBQ, Rally to End Police Murder. @ Ride from OGP
Apr 14 @ 11:00 am – Apr 14 @ 7:00 pm

Facebook event.

Since April 10th 2012, Oakland and Stockton have become one in the fight against police brutality. Donnie Smith-Downs has gone coast to coast in support of victims of police killing. She has shown us that solidarity is an action word by her presence in the fight against police brutality and the militarization of local police departments. Her son James Rivera was shot with an AR-15, piercing his body leaving holes the size of tennis balls.

Since 4/10 /12 Stockton has had a number of police killings, and momma Dionne has become a source of strength for those families in her community. The justice for James Rivera coalition over the past few years have been able to spread the word about the racism in Stockton police department that the department of justice is giving 6 cities funding to combat racism in, and Stockton is one of them. Show your solidarity with Dionne Smith-Downs as she fights for others in her community. Let’s imitate what her and Cyndi Mitchell have shown us.

Rally and March will begin at 12:30 PM at Eden Park, Stockton.

Fight for 15 March: Stand Up for $15
Apr 15 @ 3:00 pm – Apr 15 @ 5:00 pm

Facebook event.

On April 15, join the Fight for $15 and be part of the largest low-wage worker protests in modern American history.

There is a crisis in America. Working families have endured decades of stagnant incomes. We are increasingly forced to choose between keeping a roof over our heads, paying our bills or feeding our kids.

Meanwhile, the corporations we work for have record profits and their executives earn ever-increasing salaries.

On April 15, here in the Bay Area, families, workers, people of faith, students, artists, leaders, and community supporters will be taking to the streets to say that “We won’t stand for this.”
