The Iran Agenda Today: The Real Story Inside Iran and What’s Wrong with US Policy @ first Congregational Church of Berkeley
Nov 15 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Based on frequent, first-hand reporting in Iran and the United States, The Iran Agenda Today explores the turbulent recent history between the two countries and reveals how it has led to a misguided showdown over nuclear technology. Foreign correspondent Reese Erlich notes that all the major U.S. intelligence agencies agree Iran has not had a nuclear weapons program since at least 2003. He explores why Washington nonetheless continues saber rattling, and he provides a detailed critique of mainstream media coverage of Iran. The book further details the popular protests that have rocked Tehran despite repression by the country’s own Deep State. Erlich offers insights on Iran’s domestic politics, popular culture, and diverse populations over this recent era. His analysis draws on past interviews with high-ranking Iranian officials, the former shah’s son, Reza Pahlavi, and Iranian exiles in Los Angeles, as well as his trip to Tehran with actor Sean Penn.Erlich’s book Target Iraq: What the News Media Didn’t Tell You, co-authored  with Norman Solomon was a best seller in 2003. His fifth book, Inside Syria: the Backstory of Their Civil War and What the World Can Expect (foreword by Noam Chomsky) was published in 2014. In a starred review of Inside SyriaPublisher’s Weekly wrote that Erlich’s “insights and conclusions are objective and valuable… essential reading for understanding the current turmoil in the Middle East.

Norman Solomon is the author of a dozen books including “War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death. He is also the Founder and Executive Director of the Institute for Public Accuracy, where he coordinates the ExposeFacts.org program for whistleblowers and press freedom, and co-founder of RootsAction.org.

 

Sabrina Jacobs is host and producer of the popular A Rude Awakening, aired on KPFA, Mondays 3:30 -4pm. She covers local breaking news as well as global events, informing listeners about the latest social injustices. Ms. Jacobs is also currently serving as staff representative/vice chair of Pacifica Radio’s National Board.

Film Screening, “Human Flow” Directed by Artist Ai Weiwei @ Revolution Books
Nov 16 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

65 million people worldwide are fleeing war, ethnic cleansing, environmental catastrophe. Filmed in 23 countries over two years, the dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei brings to life the immense human scale of the worldwide refugee crisis.

The film’s aerial photography shows the destruction of Mosul by the U.S. in Iraq, sub-Saharan Africa where 26 percent of the world’s refugees are located, the vast network of permanent camps in the Middle East, and the open-air prison of Gaza and the U.S.-Mexican border.

Ai Weiwei gives voice to the people living through this and to their hopes and their dignified determination to be treated as human beings.

Eyewitness Mexico: Report & Video from Refugee Caravan
Nov 16 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

A team of journalists from Liberation News traveled to Mexico in early Nov. to document the refugee caravan. Thousands of mainly Honduran families walking thousands of miles to the U.S. border are fleeing incredible violence and poverty in their home country as a direct result of decades of U.S. exploitation and intervention in the region. These increased hardships stem directly from the 2009 U.S.-backed coup in Honduras that ousted the democratically-elected progressive leader Manuel Zelaya installing a rightwing puppet government and unleashing widespread violence throughout the country.

Join us for an eyewitness report and video from PSL organizer Gloria La Riva documenting the stories of those on the caravan and the mass support they have received from the people of Mexico as they traveled to the border.

Refreshments provided. Wheelchair accessible.

BAAQMD Grapples with Tar Sands, @ Bay Area Air Quality Management District
Nov 19 @ 8:30 am – 11:30 am

In August, at the urging of Idle No More SF Bay, several Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) staff and board members journeyed to British Columbia to meet with government officials and First Nations people resisting the Canadian Trans Mountain Pipeline, and then to Alberta to tour tar sands extraction sites.  This special Board of Directors meeting features the report back from that trip.

Speakers will include the BAAQMD delegation and some of the people the delegation met with in Canada: Charlene Aleck, elected Councilor from the Tsleil-Waututh Nation in British Columbia, Tzephorah Berman from Stand.earth, Dave Collier, and Pennie Opal Plant from Idle No More SF Bay.

In 2017, Phillips 66 applied for an Air District permit to nearly triple the amount of oil it brings in by tanker to its Rodeo wharf.  This current proposal follows an unsuccessful attempt made by the refiner three years ago to bring in tar sands crude via oil trains to its Central Coast refinery in Santa Maria.  That refinery is joined by pipeline to the refinery in Rodeo; together they comprise what Phillips 66 calls the San Francisco Refinery.  The Santa Maria project was stopped by the tireless efforts of Northern California activists all along the rail lines, who ultimately persuaded the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors to deny approval.  Now Phillips 66 is resuming its attempts to convert to tar sands refining.  The current status of its Rodeo “wharf expansion” proposal is unknown, however.  The Draft Environmental Project has not yet been released, and it’s unclear what action the Air District will ultimately take.

The November 19th meeting should expose the very real connections between Canadian tar sands mining, Indigenous rights, and the potentially serious impacts on Bay Area frontline communities and on the global climate.  Will the BAAQMD, a major local enforcer of California climate policy, take its role of climate protector seriously enough to erect a protective barrier around the Bay and ensure that extra-toxic tar sands are kept out of local refinery crude slates?  Bay Area climate justice activists are watching closely.

See you on the 19th!

Christina Gerhardt: 1968 and Global Cinema @ Moe's Books
Nov 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Christina Gerhardt is Visiting Scholar at the University of California at Berkeley and Associate Professor of Film and German Studies at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

She is author of Screening the Red Army Faction: Historical and Cultural Memory (Bloomsbury, 2018), about which Kristin Ross wrote: “This informative and well-documented study of the changing representations of the Red Army Faction is a welcome model for how to go about de-provincializing our understanding of the post-war German experience.”

She is also co-editor of 1968 and Global Cinema (Wayne State UP, 2018), about which Rosalind Galt (King’s College London) wrote: “Insisting on the centrality of anticolonial struggles and international solidarities to the category of world cinema, this volume makes a welcome intervention into scholarship on political cinema. The editors have gathered an impressive range of essays which open out the histories and aesthetics of 1968 in genuinely exciting ways” and Rey Chow (Duke University) wrote: “This is timely, informative and stimulating set of essays is designed to deepen our understanding of 1968 as a watershed in cinematic aesthetics and global activist politics. An impressive collective accomplishment.”

Also related to 1968, she is co-editor of Celluloid Revolt: German Screen Cultures and the Long Sixties (Camden House, 2019) and guest editor of 1968 and West German Cinema, a special issue of The Sixties 10 (2017).
She has also held fellowships from the Fulbright Commission, the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) and the National Endowment for the Humanities. She has held visiting appointments at Harvard University, the Free University in Berlin and at Columbia
University and at the University of California at Berkeley, where she taught previously.

Her writing has been published in the journals Cineaste, Film Criticism, Film Quarterly, German Studies Review, Humanities, Mosaic, New German Critique, Quarterly Review of Film and Video and The Sixties.

Human Rights and Dignity in the Americas @ BFUU Fellowship Hall
Dec 18 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Celebrating the publication of Human Rights and Wrongs and Plan Colombia

Authors Adrianne Aron and John Lindsay-Poland discuss their new books, Human Rights and Wrongs (Sunshot Press) and Plan Colombia: U.S. Ally Atrocities and Community Activism (Duke University Press), respectively. Both books recount stories of individuals and communities – especially in Latin America – resisting U.S. and state violence, often at great cost, and the power of human solidarity. Aron’s vignettes in the style of Eduardo Galeano draw from her experience as a psychologist and work with Central American refugees.

Lindsay-Poland narrates a Colombian peace community and a massacre, as well as the policy of training and equipping Colombian forces that serves as a template for U.S. intervention globally.

Books will be available for sale and signing.

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.

Potluck before Occupy Oakland General Assembly @ Oscar Grant Plaza
Mar 31 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

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.
