Healthcare For All Alameda County Chapter Revival Meeting @ Berkeley Public Library
Jan 22 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
We are very pleased to announce that our Health Care for All-California Alameda County chapter is re-forming after a long slumber! The chapter will hold a chapter revival meeting with a movie showing of the brand-new documentary about #singlepayer health care “Now Is The Time”.
They’ll also discuss the upcoming campaign to get a #singlepayer bill passed in the California legislature in 2017. The meeting and movie showing will be at the Berkeley Main Library in downtown Berkeley on Sunday Jan 22nd from 1-4pm. Admission is free but we will take donations!
The library allows food at the meetings so we’re looking into supplying some snacks but we’d also love some food donations. And we’re looking for volunteers to help out with the screening, so if you’re interested please add a comment! We’ve got room for about 110 people so please RSVP here so we know if we’re maxed out. More details to follow! Thanks everyone for reading and spreading the word! Disclaimer: This event is not being sponsored by the Berkeley Public Library. We are only using their facility.

Occupy Forum: Working with the Homeless @ Black and Brown Social Club
Jan 23 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

OccupyForum presents…

Information, discussion & community! Monday Night Forum!!
Occupy Forum is an opportunity for open and respectful dialogue
on all sides of these critically important issues!

Father River Sims and Philip O’Donnell:
Working with the Homeless

 “Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.”

The way River Sims tells his horror stories, calmly, barely raising his voice, poised like the Anglican priest he is, makes them seem all the more ugly by contrast. “He’s third-generation homeless,” says Sims, speaking in tones members of Old San Francisco might use to speak of their lineage. “His mother shot him up with heroin for the first time when he was 8 years old.”

Father Christian River Sims has been working with San Francisco’s homeless, junkies and sex workers, primarily in the Polk, Haight and Civic Center areas, for the past 22 years. His ministry, which he calls Temenos Catholic Worker (temenos is Greek for that which is abandoned, cut off or separated), is really just Sims, working out of a sparsely furnished one-bedroom apartment crammed with the things that he needs for his work. Sims exchanges 2,000 needles a week, which he gets from the Prevention Point needle exchange program. He also distributes condoms, clothing  socks aree a big draw with the rainy weather  and as much advice as people ask him for, about drug rehab or shelters or where the free showers are or anything else a street survivor might want to know.

Everyone knows Sims. He knows all their stories. He never gives them money, so they don’t ask. “I must have spent $8,000 on pizza the first year I was out here, trying to gain their trust,” Sims laughs. He survives on donations, gets food from the Food Bank, lives on less than $800 per month himself. It’s his life, usually five or six nights a week, from 8 p.m. until 4 a.m.

 “I am a priest­ who feels uncomfortable within a church building because I was condemned, and pushed out because of being gay; yet God pulled me back kicking and screaming.  In this life of contrradictions what holds me together is my faith in the living person of Jesus of Nazareth My resolve is to continue to follow him in his summons that “You shall love the Lord your God with your mind, strength and your soul, and your neighbor as yourself. I see Jesus in every one of the people I see on the street.”

Presenting with Father Sims is a young man he works with, Phillip O’Donnell, who is writing a book “Rise from the Mud� Breathe.” “My name is Phillip O’Donnell. I’m 22 years old and homeless here in San Francisco. Homeless with purpose. I have been trying to get an SRO, but the waiting lists are long and space is scarce. In the meantime, I sleep on the streets, Golden Gate Park, and when luck comes my way, a hostel or a generous person’s apartment. Although I am surviving, the lack of consistency makes it extremely difficult to move forward especially when the tendrils of my depression strike at my soul… Upon receiving housing, I plan to work for one of the organizations providing the services that are critical to my survival. I want to contribute to the effort to end homelessness as well as meet more people facing homelessness and learn their story in an attempt to gain a better understanding of the root causes of homelessness. Homelessness is, in part, a consequence of the flaws in the design of our civilization. If we can illuminate these flaws and how our civilizational design creates homelessness, we can make more effective efforts to help people get on their feet and keep others from facing this hardship. Also, I will continue working on publishing my first novel, Rise from the Mud, Breathe, and finish my college education.

As San Francisco contends with its growing population of people pushed out of housing and onto the streets, its mentally ill and people in need, Father River Sims can help orient and guide us as to how we can be most useful and take responsibility for our sisters and brothers on the streets.

Time will be allotted for announcements.

Donations to Occupy Forum to cover costs are encouraged; no one turned away!

Killer Drones – Obama’s Tragic Legacy and a Blunt and Homicidal Weapon Handed to Trump @ Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists’ Hall
Jan 28 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Brian Terrell participated in the first protests against killing by remote control in 2009, shortly after newly elected President Obama made assassination by Predator and Reaper drones the cornerstone of his military policy. Since his arrest at Creech Air Force Base in Nevada that spring, Brian has participated in nonviolent protests around the country and abroad as this deadly technology has been proliferating. At these protests he has been arrested many times, serving jail sentences in New York and Nevada and in 2013, he spent six months in federal prison for presenting a petition at Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri. As a co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence, he has traveled to Iraq and made several visits to Afghanistan and has met with drone victims there. He has spoken about drones at universities, high schools, churches and rallies in the United States, Europe and Asia and his writings on the subject have been widely published and translated into several languages. A peace activist for more than 40 years, Brian lives on a Catholic Worker farm in Maloy, Iowa, and is on the Nevada Desert Experience Council.

Liberated Lens film night: MASHPEE NINE @ Omni Commons
Jan 29 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Mashpee Nine: The Beat Goes On is a story of injustice, outrage, activism, and vindication that emboldened cultural pride and integrity for the Wampanoag in Mashpee, Massachusetts nearly 40 years ago.

The story begins with a July 29, 1976, midnight police raid, SWAT style, on a camp for Mashpee children at the site of a recreated 17th century Wampanoag village. The drummers—some in tents for the night, others talking around the fire—were set upon, handcuffed and arrested by police in riot gear with dogs. The police destroyed the camp and damaged village structures and gardens.

Relevant in terms of national attention drawn to abuses by law enforcement today, this story was in danger of fading into distant memory. Documentarians Paula Peters and Talia Landry are determined to revive this story in the cultural and political context of Wampanoag existence in what people today call “Cape Cod”—from first contact with the English boat people, through the intervening centuries, to the events and aftermath of a police raid.

Discussion with Hartman Deetz of the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe will follow the film.

Free snacks and popcorn!

RICHARD WOLFF: An Evening of Lucid Economics and Caustic Wit @ First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley
Feb 22 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

KPFA Radio 94.1FM & Democracy at Work present

RICHARD WOLFF
“An Evening of Lucid Economics and Caustic Wit”
Hosted by Anita Johnson

Richard Wolff, an American Marxist economist, well known for his work in economic methodology and class analysis, has rapidly become famous as well for his Pacifica Network Radio program, Economic Update, which is syndicated on over 60 stations. Additionally, Professor Wolff has made appearances on various television shows, radio shows and films including: Real Time with Bill Maher, The Young Turks, Moyers & Company, Charlie Rose, Al Jazeera America, The Big Picture with Thom Hartmann, Charlie Rose, CrossTalk, The David Pakman Show, Democracy Now! The Empire Files, Politics Nation with Al Sharpton, and The Real News Network (TRNN).

We have the enormously ominous prospect of President Donald Trump – just as the U.S. is sinking ever deeper into hard times for the vast majority of its population. More economic downturns are coming. Capitalism’s instability, inequalities, and failures to meet our needs are provoking rising opposition. Considering the increasing problems of drought, poverty, debts, job conditions, and a worsening environment, the American dream is now entirely out of reach. Our political leaders are controlled by corporate giants and lobbies that defy anything like democracy. And President Trump.

In 1988 Wolff co-founded the journal Rethinking Marxism. Later he published Capitalism Hits the Fan: The Global Economic Meltdown and What To Do About It, This was followed by Occupy the Economy: Challenging Capitalism (with David Barsamian), and Democracy at Work. The New York Times Magazine has named him “America’s most prominent Marxist economist.”

Potluck before Occupy Oakland General Assembly @ Oscar Grant Plaza or basement of Omni basement if raining
Jun 25 @ 2:00 pm

The last Sunday of every month attendees of the OO GA will get together a little earlier than usual, at 2 PM (3 PM pn the summer) to share some food with each others and the community.  There should be a table and utensils/plates courtesy of the Kitchen Committee (such at he is), so just bring a nosh to share… Eat-the-Rich-bonapetit

The Occupy Oakland General Assembly meets every Sunday at 3 PM at Oscar Grant Plaza amphitheater at 14th Street & Broadway, often on the steps of City Hall. If it is raining (as in RAINING, not just misting) at 3:00 PM we meet in the basement of the Omni Collective, 4799 Shattuck Ave., Oakland. During the warmer months we tend to meet at 4 PM.

ooGAOO General Assembly has met on a continuous basis for more than 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
