From Oakland to Baltimore, police harassment and murder of poor Black, Brown and Native American women, men and transgenders is an epidemic. What will it take to bring justice for Freddie Gray, Oscar Grant, Mya Hall, Alex Nieto, Michael Brown and all those killed? How do we end the structural racism and brutality that warps the lives of the poor? Join a candid discussion that ranges from calling for civilian review boards over the police to replacing the whole rotten U.S. system. A home-cooked brunch is served at 12:15 pm … Continued

Court Support @ Wiley Manual Courthouse, Dept. 107
May 20 @ 9:00 am – 11:30 am
A comrade who was arrested in December is facing newly-filed charges. This person’s charges were not previously filed at a mass arraignment. Instead of going through this in solidarity with others, they were confronted through a letter from the DA, months later, alone. This is a reminder and a warning: though charges may not have been filed at a first arraignment, the DA may choose to press them within a year of arrest. Let’s show support for the long haul, beyond the moment of the protest, beyond the mass arraignment. … Continued

Statewide Day of Action against Nestlé @ Nestle Waters North America
May 20 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
At a time when California faces one of the worst droughts on record, Nestle is bottling water out of California’s springs, aquifers and national forests to sell for profit. Nestle is unwilling to stop this practice – and even pumped water using a permit that expired 25 years ago. We must ramp up the pressure on Nestle – the poster child for corporate water abuse in California. Nestle has two bottling plants in California – one in Sacramento, and one in Los Angeles. Please join us on Wednesday at 11:00 … Continued

APTP is launching its campaign Invisible Victims of State Terror: Women of Color on 5/21.

On 5/21, we will gather in the Home Depot parking lot (where the events leading to Yuvette’s … Continued

#JusticeForRekia and ALL Black women and girls. @ Oscar Grant Plaza | Oakland | California | United States
The average life expectancy for Black trans women is 35 years. An estimated 25.1 percent of Black American women live in poverty – a higher rate than any other ethnic group. Black women and girls, trans* and cis, are routinely harassed by police and abused by the state. While we’ve witnessed entire cities rise up to resist the murders of Black men, the murders of Black women continue to go largely ignored. Silencing the pain of our sisters only perpetuates this violence. #BlackSpring is here: it’s time to remember and … Continued

Public Financing of Campaigns in Berkeley @ North Berkeley Senior Center
May 21 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
 The City of Berkeley’s Fair Campaign Practices Commission will consider whether to recommend that the Berkeley City Council establish a public financing system – one of the best tools we have at our disposal to fix our broken electoral process. As public officials are being bought and sold by billionaires and wealthy special interests, the need for comprehensive campaign finance reform is more urgent now than ever. Sign up to attend and testify in support of public financing! Public financing allows candidates to rely on small dollar donations and aims … Continued

EFF Privacy Workshop @ Random Parts Gallery
May 23 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Privacy Workshop It’s easy to succumb to privacy nihilism. That’s the idea that digital security and privacy are simply impossible. But that’s simply wrong. Better security and more privacy are possible. It is true that trying to protect yourself from 100% of the threats you face 100% of the time is a recipe for failure. But perfection is not the goal of digital security. Each person is faced with different threats—potential events that could undermine your efforts to defend your data. By determining what you need to protect and whom … Continued
