From Petroleum to Biorefining: Climate Boon or Boondoggle? @ Online
Apr 15 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Register here for the zoom link.

Are biofuels better or worse for the climate than fossil fuels?

Two Bay Area oil refineries recently announced a pivot from petroleum refining to the production of renewable diesel. And they’re not alone: in the face of current market uncertainties, the oil industry is accelerating its shift toward renewables.  But how “renewable” are their new products?  And what exactly are the local and global consequences of this escalating trend?

At this invaluable webinar, two international experts on biofuels, Drs. Stephanie Searle and Chris Malins, will present the basics of first- and second-generation biofuels and guide us to a greater understanding of what is at stake.  They will address:

• The industry arguments supporting the pivot;
• A brief history of sustainability concerns within the environmental community over the years;
• The climate consequences of refining various feedstocks, and the turn to vegetable oils;
• Air pollution impacts of refining and combusting biodiesel and renewable diesel; and
• The larger policy framework.

This webinar is a special opportunity to hear from two cutting-edge energy policy specialists with a knack for communicating clearly about complex issues.  Come with your questions and leave with a few more!

Please register here.

Dr. Stephanie Searle is the Fuels Program Director at the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT). Her bio can be found at https://theicct.org/stephanie-searle.

Dr. Chris Malins is the principal analyst at Cerulogy, a UK-based consultancy on low- carbon fuels, clean fuels, the environmental impacts of bioenergy, carbon intensity of fossil fuel production, and aviation biofuels.  His bio is at https://www.cerulogy.com/about-us/ .

Environmental Destruction and the Ecosocialist Solution @ Online
Apr 18 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Today’s ecological reality is that we are on the edge of a mass extinction, while corporations protect their bottom lines by pushing reusable bags, cups, straws, and “green” carbon offsets. Individual responsibility and greenwashed products are not the solutions we need. Addressing the full scope of the problem will take ecosocialist remedies, to change the system from the ground up – literally. Join us for a riveting discussion of real climate fixes from a socialist feminist perspective. The program will highlight Samuel Rubin, Marxist geographical anthropologist, ecosocialist and member of the Freedom Socialist Party.

Apr 25 @ 3:00 pm – 3:15 pm

4/29/2018  start date

 

Feed The People!

The last Sunday of every month attendees of the OO GA get together a little earlier than usual, at 3 PM (2 PM during cooler months) to share some food with each other and the community.  There should be a table, utensils/plates, meat and veggie entrees and whatnot, courtesy of the Kitchen Committee (such at he is), so just bring yourself, or something to share as well if you’d like.

After the meal the Occupy Oakland General Assembly meets Sundays at 4 PM at the Oscar Grant Plaza amphitheater at 14th Street & Broadway. 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. During Daylights Losing Time in the Winter we meet at 3 PM at the plaza, & again, we retreat to the Omni if the rain is a pain.

The OO General Assembly has met on a continuous basis for more than six 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. 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.

Central America’s Forgotten History: Revolution, Violence, and the Roots of Migration @ Online
Apr 29 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Aviva Chomsky restores the region’s fraught history of repression and resistance to popular consciousness and connects the United States’ interventions and influence to the influx of refugees seeking asylum today.

At the center of the current immigration debate are migrants from Central America fleeing poverty, corruption, and violence in search of asylum in the United States. In Central America’s Forgotten History, Aviva Chomsky answers the urgent question “How did we get here?” She outlines how we often fail to remember the circumstances and ongoing effects of Central America’s historical inequality and oppression, a direct result of colonial and neo-colonial development policies and the cultures of violence and forgetting needed to implement them.

Chomsky expertly recounts Central Americans’ valiant struggles for social and economic justice to restore these vivid and gripping events to popular consciousness. She traces the roots of displacement and migration in Central America to the Spanish conquest and brings us to the present day, where she concludes that the more immediate roots of migration from the three Northern Triangle countries (El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras) lie in the wars and in the US interventions of the 1980s and the peace accords of the 1990s.

Chomsky also examines how and why histories and memories are suppressed, and the impact of losing historical memory. Only by erasing history can we claim that Central American countries created their own poverty and violence, while the United States’ enjoyment and profit from their bananas, coffee, vegetables, clothing, and export of arms are simply unrelated curiosities.

Aviva Chomsky is a professor of history and the coordinator of Latin American Studies at Salem State University. The author of several books, including Undocumented and “They Take Our Jobs!,”  Chomsky has been active in the Latin American solidarity and immigrants’ rights movements for over thirty years.

Mickey Huff  is the current Director of Project Censored and president of the nonprofit Media Freedom Foundation. He has edited or co-edited ten annual volumes of Censored, and contributed numerous chapters. He is currently professor of social science and history at Diablo Valley College, where he is also co-chair of the history department.  He is executive producer and co-host of the Project Censored Show, a weekly syndicated public affairs program aired over KPFA Radio and fifty community radio stations.

Strike Debt Bay Area Book Group: The Optimist’s Telescope – Thinking Ahead in a Reckless Age @ Online
May 1 @ 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm

We still meet via Zoom.
Email strike.debt.bay.area@gmail.com for the invite.

For our April meeting we’ll be reading the first five chapters of
The Optimist’s Telescope – Thinking Ahead in a Reckless Age  by Bina Venkataraman.

“Instant gratification is the norm today—in our lives, our culture, our economy, and our politics. Many of us have forgotten (if we ever learned) how to make smart decisions for the long run. Whether it comes to our finances, our health, our communities, or our planet, it’s easy to avoid thinking ahead.

The consequences of this immediacy are stark: Superbugs spawned by the overuse of antibiotics endanger our health. Companies that fail to invest stagnate and fall behind. Hurricanes and wildfires turn deadly for communities that could have taken more precaution. Today more than ever, all of us need to know how we can make better long-term decisions in our lives, businesses, and society.

Bina Venkataraman sees the way forward. A former journalist and adviser in the Obama administration, she helped communities and businesses prepare for climate change, and she learned firsthand why people don’t think aheadand what can be done to change that. In The Optimist’s Telescope, she draws from stories she has reported around the world and new research in biology, psychology, and economics to explain how we can make decisions that benefit us over time. With examples from ancient Pompeii to modern-day Fukushima, she dispels the myth that human nature is impossibly reckless and highlights the surprising practices each of us can adopt in our own livesand the ones we must fight for as a society. The result is a book brimming with the ideas and insights all of us need in order to forge a better future.”

————————————————————————

Strike Debt Bay Area hosts this non-technical book group discussion monthly on new and radical economic thinking. Previous readings have included Doughnut EconomicsLimitsBanking on the PeopleCapital and Its Discontents, How to Be an Anti-Capitalist in the 21st Century, The Deficit Myth,  Revenge Capitalism, the Edge of Chaos blog symposium 
and Re-enchanting the World: Feminism and the Politics of the Commons.

Cops Off Campus!
May 3 all-day

Expectations: Each participating campus is asked to participate in a collective kickoff action on 5/3 and to participate in community-led actions on the anniversary of George Floyd’s death on 5/25. Beyond that, each campus is asked to coordinate their own action(s) on one or more of the 15 weekdays between these two events. See below for inspiration.

  • Banner painting culminating in banner drop from highly visible buildings
  • Repurpose Your School’s Cafeteria & Serve the Food to People in Need
  • Squat Your School’s Residences & House Folks in Need of Housing
  • March to Your Chancellor’s House & Let Them Know How You Feel

  • Letter writing to send your demands to admin/alumni/donors
  • Teach-in with abolitionist speaker
  • Paint/print posters and wheat paste them across campus
  • Publish op-ed in campus/local newspaper amplifying the national group → should pair with a more visible action that operates outside of the “university’s language” 
  • Public “Town Hall” without admin
    • can even symbolically invite your target, and have an effigy of them “present”
    • bring in organizers & people from the community who have experiences with campus cops, etc. 
    • can be theatrically held outside admin buildings
  • Create memorial for victims of police violence, local and/or national
  • Zine distribution → should pair with a more visible action for political education
  • Mutual aid drive for people who need resources in the community surrounding your institution 
  • Street puppet theater performance (e.g. targeting trustees, police, key villains)
  • Walking tour of past police/university violence in the community

Feed The People!

The last Sunday of every month attendees of the OO GA get together a little earlier than usual, at 3 PM (2 PM during cooler months) to share some food with each other and the community.  There should be a table, utensils/plates, meat and veggie entrees and whatnot, courtesy of the Kitchen Committee (such at he is), so just bring yourself, or something to share as well if you’d like.

After the meal the Occupy Oakland General Assembly meets Sundays at 4 PM at the Oscar Grant Plaza amphitheater at 14th Street & Broadway. 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. During Daylights Losing Time in the Winter we meet at 3 PM at the plaza, & again, we retreat to the Omni if the rain is a pain.

The OO General Assembly has met on a continuous basis for more than six 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. 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.
