Resist Trump Tuesday: Climate/Environmental Justice
Mar 7 @ 11:45 am – 2:00 pm

Resist attacks on climate and environmental justice — from the Dakota Access Pipeline to the ongoing push to export coal from Oakland. This march through downtown Oakland will visit Wells Fargo, Citibank, and Chase to tell them to divest from the Dakota Access Pipeline and the office of Phil Tagami, to ask him to drop his lawsuit against Oakland for banning coal exports. We want to tell Tagami to find a better use for the West Gateway property. We’ll end up at City Hall to thank the city council for their resolution asking the California Employee Retirement System to divest from the pipeline.
At each stop, there will be a boxing match between the Earth and the Corporate Investors to determine the future of the planet, as well as speakers representing indigenous people, labor, and youth.

Oakland Women’s Demonstration @ Oscar Grant Plaza
Mar 8 @ 5:00 pm – 11:30 pm

WOMEN’S DAY – It is not enough to oppose Trump and his aggressively misogynistic, homophobic, transphobic and racist policies. We must also target the ongoing neoliberal attack on social provision and labor rights. The assault on our dignity, livelihood, friends, lovers, and neighbors is only just beginning. We can expect the repeal of our healthcare, the widening of any wage equity, the elimination of overtime protections, the destruction of already weak student loan provisions. And all of this while waging a militarized police war against immigrants, black and brown communities of color.

We have got to act. Let us join together on March 8th to inagurate a new politics. Let us use the occasion of this international day of action to be done with lean-in feminism and to build in its place a feminism for the 99%, a grassroots, anti-capitalist feminism – a feminism in solidarity with working women, their families and their allies throughout the world.
