Intro to DSA @ Online
May 11 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

The membership of DSA, the largest socialist organization in the United States, is rapidly growing by the thousands. Democratic Socialist politicians like Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Cori Bush are raising the expectations of millions of people across the United States and bringing them into a political awakening. Millions of working-class Americans are calling for Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, universal rent control, and more.

But what is democratic socialism? What does it mean to be a member of DSA? How do socialists view the crises of police brutality, economic recession, and COVID-19? And what is the best course of action during the Biden administration?

Let’s talk about it.

Join us to discuss what our political moment calls for, meet new people, and get plugged into our fight for democratic control of the things that we need for all of us to live a dignified life.

The training will cover the history, structure, and organizing model of APTP, the principles of our work, conducting independent peoples’ investigations, introduction to the APTP model of supporting those impacted by police terror, and an overview of our jail support program.

Independent Investigations: This part focuses on conducting independent people’s investigations including considerations on how to build your team, security and Know Your Rights considerations, required skills and infrastructure, preparation, identifying witnesses, trauma-informed interviewing, cultural humility, collecting evidence, and documenting investigations. We will use case studies from our investigations in Oakland, and provide time for knowledge and skill sharing, and discussion.

CopWatching: In the great tradition of our Oakland’s Pathers, Brown Berets, and other radical grassroots community groups, we need to Police the Police! Learn how to observe and document police harassment in our communities, advocate for someone under arrest, and deescalate police intervention.

Family Support: This part will cover the principles of our work with families impacted by state terror, the introduction to our trauma-informed family support model, an overview of typical challenges and current needs faced by the families. Family support is on-going relationship building, long term advocacy and partnership with families impacted by police terror as they seek justice, navigate the legal system, cope with trauma, and create community with other impacted families.

Jail Support: Jail Support Training will cover the structure and procedures of our program providing community care and support for people released from Alameda County Jail (Santa Rita).

We will share materials including our confidentiality agreement, investigation form, flyer, and a training manual.

Movie Night – Say Her Name: The Life and Death of Sandra Bland @ Online
May 16 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Say Her Name: The Life and Death of Sandra Bland is a documentary that looks into the death of Sandra Bland. Sandra was a politically active 28-year-old African American who, after being arrested for a traffic violation in a small Texas town, was found hanging in her jail cell three days later. Dashcam footage revealing her arrest went viral, leading to national protests. The film team followed the two-year case beginning shortly after Bland’s death, exploring the questions of what really happened to her, and what we may learn from her tragedy.

Meeting ID: 835 1270 0871

Passcode: 035984

Join the Hip Hop Caucus for its fifth annual Environmental Justice Summit.  Leading environmental organizers from communities of color in the Bay Area and beyond will come together to share experiences and discuss steps to diversify the Green Movement, as well as specific needs of our most vulnerable communities.

The Hip Hop Caucus says, “Environmentalism is a movement that impacts all classes, colors, and demographics of society, and yet there is a lack of diversity in the environmental movement.  People of color are strong supporters of environmental issues, more so than is commonly perceived.  After all, communities of color have a much higher risk of air pollution and, historically, have been targeted as dumping sites for toxic pollution.

This lack of diversity is hurting the movement and stalling progress that’s been made to address the issue of climate change.  If we want to continue making advancements in the climate change movement, we need to be more inclusive….

This event will include a revolutionary keynote address, a panel discussion of environmental leaders, and live performances by musical artists. Register for free on Eventbrite!”

Beyond Alternatives: Disability, Madness and Prison Abolition @ Online
May 21 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Angela Y. Davis, Beth Richie, Liat Ben-Moshe, Maya Schenwar, and Victoria Law in conversation on disability, madness, and prison abolition

Live ASL interpretation and captioning will be provided. For other access questions and requests, please contact jgupta@thenewpress.com.

This event will be a timely conversation about disability, madness, prison reform and abolition. Speakers will confront the entanglement of punishment and treatment, the carceral state and social work, and caging and “rehabilitation.” They will engage with the Maya Schenwar and Victoria Law’s Prison by Any Other Name and Liat Ben-Moshe’s Decarcerating Disability, and the questions these books raise.

In Prison by Any Other Name, Schenwar and Law argue that: “The entwinement of the asylum and the prison is an old story. For the past two and a half centuries, the discipline and control of people diagnosed with mental illness has ridden alongside the discipline and control of criminalized people. Very often, those populations are one and the same, and controlled by the same authorities. The solution to their existence was, and often continues to be, confinement.”

In Decarcerating Disability, Ben-Moshe refers to this as “Carceral ableism. . . the praxis and belief that people with disabilities need special or extra protections, in ways that often expand and legitimate their further marginalization and incarceration.“ She shows how deinstitutionalization is often wrongly blamed for the rise in incarceration; who resists decarceration and deinstitutionalization, and the coalitions opposing such resistance; and underscores the limitations of disability rights and inclusion discourses, as well as tactics such as litigation, in securing freedom.

***Register through Eventbrite to receive a link to the video conference on the day of the event. This event will also be recorded.***

Richmond Anti-Chevron Day Protest @ Chevron Richmond Refinery, Castro St. gate
May 21 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Join frontline neighbors and many thousands of others around the globe for the 8th annual Global Anti-Chevron Day.  Communities from Richmond to Ecuador to Myanmar will come together in advance of Chevron’s annual shareholders’ meeting to share stories about the impact of Chevron’s environmental destruction, human rights violations, and corruption of our politics.

For over a century, Chevron has poisoned residents of Richmond and the whole S.F. Bay Area with deadly air pollution from its refinery.  Its influence over Richmond politics and nonprofits is legendary—but we’re winning victories in fighting it!

Communities around the globe—in Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, Nigeria, Kazakhstan, Burma (Myanmar) and elsewhere—suffer from Chevron’s deadly water, soil, and air pollution as well as inhumane working conditions and political interference.  Chevron denies any responsibility and continues its destruction in order to keep the oil and profits flowing.

The Sea is Rising and So Are We: A Climate Justice Handbook is an invitation to get involved in the movement to build a just and sustainable world in the face of the most urgent challenge our species has ever faced. By explaining the entrenched forces that are preventing rapid action, it helps you understand the nature of the political reality we are facing and arms you with the tools you need to overcome them.

The book offers background information on the roots of the crisis and the many rapidly expanding solutions that are being implemented all around the world. It explains how to engage in productive messaging that will pull others into the climate justice movement, what you need to know to help build a successful movement, and the policy changes needed to build a world with climate justice.

It also explores the personal side, how engaging in the movement can be good for your mental health. It ends with advice on how you can find the place where you can be the most effective and where you can build climate action into your life in ways that are deeply rewarding.

Strike Debt Bay Area Book Group: Mission Economy – A Moonshot Guide to Changing Capitalism @ Online
May 29 @ 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm

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

For our May meeting we’ll be reading Part I and Part II of

Mission Economy: A Moonshot Guide to Changing Capitalism by Marianna Mazzucato

Capitalism is in crisis. The rich have gotten richer—the 1 percent, those with more than $1 million, own 44 percent of the world’s wealth—while climate change is transforming—and in some cases wiping out—life on the planet. We are plagued by crises threatening our lives, and this situation is unsustainable. But how do we fix these problems decades in the making?

Mission Economy looks at the grand challenges facing us in a radically new way. Global warming, pollution, dementia, obesity, gun violence, mobility—these environmental, health, and social dilemmas are huge, complex, and have no simple solutions. Mariana Mazzucato argues we need to think bigger and mobilize our resources in a way that is as bold as inspirational as the moon landing—this time to the most ‘wicked’ social problems of our time.. We can only begin to find answers if we fundamentally restructure capitalism to make it inclusive, sustainable, and driven by innovation that tackles concrete problems from the digital divide, to health pandemics, to our polluted cities. That means changing government tools and culture, creating new markers of corporate governance, and ensuring that corporations, society, and the government coalesce to share a common goal.

We did it to go to the moon. We can do it again to fix our problems and improve the lives of every one of us. We simply can no longer afford not to.

Mariana Mazzucato, PhD, is a professor in the Economics of Innovation and Public Value at University College London, where she is the founding director of the UCL Institute for Innovation & Public Purpose. She has written, edited, or co-authored numerous books, articles, and papers on policy, capitalism, economics, and innovation, including The Entrepreneurial State: Debunking Public vs. Private Sector Myths and The Value of Everything: Making and Taking in the Global Economy.

She advises policy makers worldwide and is currently a member of the South African Presidential Economic Advisory Council, the Scottish Government’s Council of Economic Advisors; the UN’s Committee for Development Policy, and the OECD’s Secretary General’s Advisory Group on a New Growth Narrative. She is also a Special Advisor to the Italian Prime Minister, and a Special Advisor for the EC Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation

Potluck before Occupy Oakland General Assembly @ Oscar Grant Plaza
May 30 @ 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.
