Join the Campaign to Protect Oakland Renters @ Lake Merritt Columns (North Side of Lake Merritt near Lakeshore and El Embarcadero)
Aug 27 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Now that we’ve endorsed Measure LL, which strengthens the Oakland Rent Law and expands Just Cause eviction protection to more households, it’s time to turn out support.

There will be a few brief speeches, a quick training and then we’ll walk and talk to voters in the area. We will distribute window signs to local merchants and discuss our issue with shoppers at the Grand Lake Farmer’s Market.

We are expecting the landlords to spend a huge amount of money against our measure so it is important that we get out and start talking to voters now.  For more information, go to the website: http://www.protectoaklandrenters.org/

Potluck before Occupy Oakland General Assembly @ Oscar Grant Plaza or basement of Omni basement if raining
Aug 28 @ 3:00 pm

The last Sunday of every month attendees of the OO GA will get together a little earlier than usual, at 3 PM 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 4 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 4:00 PM we meet in the basement of the Omni Collective, 4799 Shattuck Ave., Oakland.

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

Film screening & discussion: WILLIAM KUNSTLER: DISTURBING THE UNIVERSE @ Revolution Books
Sep 1 @ 10:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Film screening & discussion hosted by notorious flag burner Joey Johnson
WILLIAM KUNSTLER: DISTURBING THE UNIVERSE

Filmmakers Emily Kunstler and Sarah Kunstler explore the life of their father, the late, great radical civil rights lawyer. Kunstler defended the Black Panther Party, the American Indian Movement, and was called on by prisoners to negotiate for them during the Attica uprising of 1971. In 1989 William Kunstler successfully argued the case of Texas v. Johnson before the US Supreme Court and in a landmark decision won the right to burn a flag in protest. Joey Johnson, a revolutionary, who was represented by Kunstler after burning the American flag at the 1984 RNC, and who is now, along with 16 others in the Revolution Club, facing trumped up charges for exercising this right (of burning the flag) at the 2016 Republican National Convention will host the screening and discussion after the film.

Know Your Rights for Social Movement Photographers @ Asian Resource Gallery
Sep 14 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Photographers! Know your rights when you cover marches, demonstrations and other movement actions. Know how to protect yourself, who is on your side, and where the lines are in the real world.

Have you ever wondered:
* Can police confiscate my camera or images?
* What are my rights to photograph or film police themselves?
* Is it safe to stay after a dispersal order?
* What additional rights, if any, does a press pass confer?

We’ll hear from activist photographers, seasoned photojornalists, and movement lawyers on these questions and more. Even if you don’t consider yourself a “photographer” but take cell phone pics/video at protests, this workshop is for YOU too!!

Sponsored by Class Conscious Photographers/Silicon Valley DeBug and Pacific Media Workers CWA Local 39521.
