Greenwashing Disaster Capital @ Online

The people who produced Hoodwinked in the Hothouse, a key report exposing corporate-based false solutions to the climate crisis, host the fourth in their series of webinars, Greenwashing Disaster Capital.

Speakers will explain how corporate interests are hijacking critical climate action around the world by co-opting key concepts, frameworks and language from our movements.

The organizers write:

“Traditional ecological knowledge concepts like biomimicry, strategy frameworks like a just transition, and even popular narratives like building a regenerative economy have been co-opted in recent years by big NGOs, philanthropists and academic institutions to advance neoliberal schemes like pollution trading at policy arenas like the UNFCCC.

“Scores of universities, government agencies, corporations, NGOs and funders are engaged in this widespread greenwashing pandemic  – serving a colonial extractivist agenda that awards $trillions in subsidies to polluting corporations, creating structural barriers to the advancement of proven strategies and real solutions that our communities and the planet really need.”

Panel Discussion

On Feb 4, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin met with China’s President Xi Jinping at the opening of the Winter Olympics in Beijing  They released a 5000-word document, “Joint Statement of the Russian Federation and the People’s Republic of China on the International Relations Entering a New Era and the Global Sustainable Development.” This document expresses the views of two of the world’s largest nuclear powers, both permanent members of the UN Security Council. As such, it merits full discussion. ICSS members Gene Ruyle and Raj Sahai will lead our discussion.

The document can be read at:

Another view, “Ukraine Communists’ View of the War in their Country and How to End Ir,” By Stephen Gowans, may be found at:

Occupy Oakland General Assembly @ Oscar Grant Plaza
Jul 24 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

NOTE: During the Plague Year of 2020 GA will be held every week or two on Zoom. To find out the exact time a date get on the Occupy Oakland email list my sending an email to:


The Occupy Oakland General Assembly meets every Sunday at 4 PM at Oscar Grant Plaza amphitheater at 14th Street & Broadway near the steps of City Hall. If for some reason the amphitheater is being used otherwise and/or OGP itself is inaccessible, we will meet at Kaiser Park, right next to the statues, on 19th St. between San Pablo and Telegraph. 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. (Note: we tend to meet at 3:00 PM during the cooler months from November to early March after Daylights Savings Time.)

On every ‘last Sunday’ we meet a little earlier at 3 PM to have a community potluck to which all are welcome.

OO General Assembly has met on a continuous basis for over six years, since October 2011! 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. We encourage everyone participating in the Occupy Oakland GA to be part of at least one associated group, but it is by no means a requirement. 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.

Fight Back Against Mass Surveillance @ Online
Jul 25 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Debt Strike! @ Online
Jul 26 @ 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm

As of right now, Biden is still planning to turn on federal student debt payments on September 1, 2022. That’s forty-eight days from now. The payment pause, if you need a reminder, is a Trump-initiated policy from March 2020, which Biden has continued to warm-up and serve to the American people. Meanwhile, we’re still waiting on Biden’s big promise to cancel student debt. Here at the Debt Collective, we’re not holding our breath: we’re organizing.

That’s why we’re getting ready to go on a debt strike – withholding payments for money we never should havve had to borrow in the first place.

As prices reach record highs and wages fall to record lows, turning on student loan payments is nothing but a cruel blow to working people, struggling to make ends meet. Millions will not be able to pay, and may risk falling into default. We can’t pay – and we won’t pay. <

Debt strikes are not a joke and we don’t broach calls to go on debt strike lightly. For many people, there are safe ways to get to $0 monthly payments, therefore refusing to pay into an unjust system.

This is why we are having a DEBT STRIKE INFO SESSION on Tuesday, July 26 at 7:30PM EST to discuss options for safely striking. Whether you are strike-ready or strike-curious, join this session to know what options are on the table for you to fight back against the creditocracy.

We’re not in debt because we live beyond our means; we’re in debt because we’ve been denied the means to live.

In other words, we didn’t start the fire.

See you Tuesday.

Supporting Farmers for Nature-Based Carbon Sequestration @ Online
Jul 28 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Register here

This webinar from The Climate Center will explain how climate-smart agricultural practices can sequester significant amounts of carbon while also improving soil health, increasing water retention in the soil, and making the land more drought-resilient and productive. They’ll also talk about what investments are necessary to support farmers in changing to these practices.


Patricia Hickey, Managing Director at the Carbon Cycle Institute

Albert Straus,  founder and CEO of Straus Family Creamery

Baani Behniwal, The Climate Center’s Natural Sequestration Initiative Manager.

While adopting these practices is essential and important, beware of suggestions that they can be financed by selling “credits’ to emitters of greenhouse gases. Such carbon market schemes do not reduce the rate of GHG emissions and serve as an excuse for polluters to continue climate destruction.
