Potluck before Occupy Oakland General Assembly @ Oscar Grant Plaza or basement of Omni basement if raining
Jun 24 @ 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm

Feed The People!

The last Sunday of every month attendees of the OO GA get together a little earlier than usual, at 2 PM (3 PM during DST) 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.

The Occupy Oakland General Assembly meets every Sunday at 3 PM at the Oscar Grant Plaza amphitheater at 14th Street & Broadway in the amphitheater. If it is raining (as in RAINING, not just misting) at 3:00 PM we meet in the basement of the Omni Collective, 4799 Shattuck Ave., Oakland. During the warmer months we meet at 4 PM at the plaza.

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

Oakland Privacy: Fighting Against the Surveillance State @ Omni Commons
Jun 25 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Join Oakland Privacy to organize against the surveillance state, police militarization and ICE, and to advocate for surveillance regulation around the Bay.

op-logo.2.1We fight against “pre-crime” and “thought-crime,” spy drones, facial recognition, police body cameras and requirements for “backdoors” to cellphones, to list just a few invasions of our privacy by all levels of Government.

We draft and push for privacy legislation for City Councils, at the County level, and in Sacramento. We advocate in op-eds and in the streets. We stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and believe no one is illegal.

Oakland Privacy originally came together in 2013 to fight against the Domain Awareness Center, Oakland’s citywide networked mass surveillance hub. OP was instrumental in stopping the DAC from becoming a city-wide spying network.

Our major projects currently include local legislation to regulate state surveillance (we got the strongest surveillance regulation ordinance in the country passed in Oakland!), opposing Urban Shield (now gone!) and pushing back against ICE with local legislation.

If you are interested in joining the Oakland Privacy email listserv, coming to a meeting, or have questions, send an email to:

contact@oaklandprivacy.org

“WATCHING YOU WATCHING US”

Oakland Privacy works regionally to defend the right to privacy and enhance public transparency and oversight regarding the use of surveillance techniques and equipment.  Oakland Privacy drove the passage of surveillance regulation and transparency ordinances in Oakland and Berkeley and is kicking off new processes in Richmond and Alameda County.  To help slow down the encroaching police state all over the Bay Area, join us at the Omni.

Tenant And Neighborhood Council (TANC) Meeting @ Omni Commons
Jun 25 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Let’s get organized against the housing market. Come through!
———-
We are a group of Bay Area tenants who are fed up with rising rents, evictions, and harassment at the hands of landlords. We are fed up with our neighbors having no option but to live unsheltered and at constant risk of police harassment. We want to stop landlords, developers, and cops from looting our communities.

A council is a group of tenants who work together to wield collective power against a shared landlord in order to improve their conditions. While, in general, councils may organize for more affordable, habitable, and safer housing, the issues that a council decides to organize around is ultimately dictated by its members. Councils can be powerful because they can directly apply their collective pressure on their landlord without the permission of city hall or other third parties.

TANC will help organize councils and bring them together as a network. While councils interface directly with their landlord, they can find support from other councils who rent from different landlords. We will assist in getting the word out to tenants and researching landlords. Neighbors will get to know each other during dinners, BBQs, and other events that TANC will support. We will compile complaints that are common across councils and aid in seeking their resolution. Councils will discuss and demand timely repairs, and support tenants threatened with eviction. Ultimately, the point is to reconfigure power dynamics of landlords and tenants in the Bay Area.

Day of Action at West County Detention Facility @ West County Detention Facility
Jun 26 all-day

UPDATE: Tuesday’s action begins at 7:00AM. Vigil until 7:00PM. Press conference/rally at 12NOON with members of the Richmond City Council and representatives of local organizations. All organizations endorsing the action are invited to participate.

Individuals drIving to the action are encouraged to stop by the Richmond BART Station (east side) to help shuttle. Van shuttle begins at approximately 8:30AM and will continue throughout the day, twice an hour. Bring sunscreen, water, snacks and signs.

We are absolutely committed to non-violence. Legal Hotline # is 415-909-4NLG (415-909-4654).

==========

The only ICE facility in the Bay Area is located within the West County Detention Facility in Richmond, CA and operated by the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office. On any given day, approximately 200 (adult) immigrants are detained there. Contra Costa County Sheriff John Livingston refuses to permit local organizations and elected officials to inspect the facility.

One of his deputies was recently arrested and charged with sexual assault against two inmates. We are working with Richmond-based community organizations, labor unions and immigrant rights groups to protest Trump’s cruel immigration policies as well as the racial disparities in our justice system that contribute to mass incarceration of people of color, particularly African-Americans.

Please join us this Tuesday, all day, as we stand against ICE and Trump’s racist policies. JOIN US!

We’re working on a shuttle to/from Richmond BART. AC Transit #71 also runs from BART to the jail about every 30 minutes.

Public Land for Public Good! @ Oakland City Hall, Hearing Room 1, Oscar Grant Plaza
Jun 26 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Speak Up Speak Out! We Want Public Lands for 100% Public Use *
* Hands Off East Oakland! Don’t Sell Our Land to Market Rate Developers *
* Build Housing Affordable to Oakland’s Unhoused Now *
* Use Public Funds to Prevent Displacement NOT Facilitate Tenant Evictions! * 

DID YOU KNOW?

  • There are close to 50 publicly owned vacant or underutilized parcels in Oakland that the City of Oakland had deemed were suitable for housing development?  These 50 parcels could produce over 7,300 new housing units IF the City stops prioritizing market rate development over affordable housing!
  • As of December 2017, there are over 20,000 market rate housing units that the City of Oakland has approved that are under construction or in the pipeline, compared to less than 1,500 affordable units.
  • That the City Council in June 2017 allocated $2.2 million to prevent displacement and homelessness of low-income homeowners and tenants?  Councilmember McElhaney now wants to use $300,000 of those funds to pay landlords who are evicting tenants!

We are DEMANDING that Oakland’s Community & Economic Development Committee (CED) ADOPT:

  • A resolution approving a 180-day moratorium on the sale of public land. No public lands can be sold or leased for 180 days.
  • A public lands policy that is for 100% public use that includes affordable housing options for no to low income residents and the working poor in Oakland facing displacement and homelessness.

We are DEMANDING that Oakland’s Community & Economic Development Committee (CED) DOES NOT:

  • Take $300,000 of Anti-Displacement Funds AWAY FROM low income homeowners and tenants and instead GIVE to The Hardship Payment Schedule Program for Landlords Evicting Tenants. This resolution is proposing that $300,000 goes towards funding lower income landlords who are required to pay tenant relocation when they are evicting even lower income residents! Ask CED to VOTE NO on this proposed resolution.

How you can HELP:

  • Attend and speak at the Community & Economic Development Committee (CED) on Tuesday, June 26, 2018, 1:00 PM, City Council Chamber, 3rd Floor. View the CED agenda for June 26, here.
  • Can’t attend? Submit eComments!

(Item 4) 18-0533 Subject: Resolution Approving A Moratorium On The Sale Of Public Land. (Item 5)  18-0663 Subject: Hardship Payment Schedule For Lower Income Homeowners (BUT REALLY LANDLORDS!)
  • Email and/or call the CED members and demand that we want public lands for 100% public use and don’t want anti-displacement funds used to help landlords evict tenants:

Rally Against Proposed Concord Concentration Camp – El Cerrito @ El Cerrito Plaza
Jun 28 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

About 600 people are expected to show up for a rally and human billboard protesting the detention camp at 6 p.m. Thursday at the entrance to El Cerrito Plaza on San Pablo Avenue in El Cerrito, according to a member of El Cerrito Shows Up.

“We will hold a human billboard action in which we will line up on San Pablo at the heart of commute time and hold up signs with messages,” said Sherry Drobner, an organizer with El Cerrito Shows Up reached by telephone Saturday morning.

“This is comparable to the Japanese internment camps,” Drobner said, linking the mass detention of immigrants to camps that existed in the Bay Area during World War II. “Our country apologized for those camps, so we already know this is wrong.”

People’s Assembly on Clean Air, Water and Streets
Jun 28 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Our People’s Assembly will focus on cleaning up our air, water and streets. A greedy developer is trying to force a dangerously polluting coal terminal on West Oakland, and Libby Schaaf has failed to stop him. The streets and parks in East and West Oakland are covered in trash, while the Hills where Libby lives are sparkling clean thanks to unequal distribution of public resources. Oakland communities are suffering from rampant, unchecked environmental injustice. Join us to dream about an Oakland where everyone, especially our children, have access to clean, safe drinking water and air, and our streets are clean and free of illegal dumping.
