Bay Area Solidarity Rally For Railroad Workers! Defend The Right To Strike! @ Port of Oakland, Shoreline Park
Oct 22 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Defend The Right To Strike!
An Injury To One Is An Injury To All!
Repeal The Anti-labor Railway Labor Act

US railroad workers are continuing to mostly vote against a proposed contract that does nothing to
defend their health and safety condition on he job with long dangerous hours.

Using the Railway Labor Act as a union busting tool which it is, workers are being told they really don’t have the right to strike and have to accept a contract that destroys workers lives and conditions.

Working people and unions need to rally to defend railroad workers and all other unions and working people who are under attack from striking NUHW Healthcare workers, OEA OUSD teachers, UTR WCCSD teachers and all public workers.

We also need to defend Amazon, Starbucks and all worker who are fighting to get organized and have a union. They face union busting billionaires that flagrantly violate weak US labor laws that are not even enforced by Biden & his “union” Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh.

We have to fight the closures of public schools and privatization of public services,
privatization of the Port of Oakland and defend all public services and fight systemic racism.

With 750,000 unionized workers whose contracts expire next year, we need to build a united
working class movement of all unions and working people to back each other up and fight together. Business unionism will not defend working people, our unions and worker rights.

Join us in a solidarity rally for Railroad workers and their right to strike and all
workers in this country and around the world.

Free Mumia Abu-Jamal! @ Federal Bldg
Oct 26 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

After more than four decades, 14 000 days, spent far away from his family, the case of Mumia ABU-JAMAL will be heard in the Philadelphia, PA Court of Common Pleas. The same court system that had sentenced him to die by lethal injection, then to death by incarceration. The evidence that has now come to light — but was long kept in the dark by the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office — should enable his release !

Free Mumia Abu-Jamal is the cry heard around the world for 40 years. It will reverberate in Philadelphia on Oct. 19. Here in the Bay Area we are calling for freedom for Mumia. Please join us.

Stop Corporate Pollution of Oakland Politics @ Oscar Grant Plaza
Oct 27 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Fossil fuel companies not only pollute national and state elections, they are polluting local races as well, like the Oakland mayor’s race. Five candidates for mayor have signed a pledge opposing a coal export terminal in Oakland. But one candidate, Ignacio de la Fuente, who is on record supporting the terminal, has accepted a staggering $600,000 from the coal terminal developers.

Join 350 East Bay along with No Coal in Oakland, Youth vs. Apocalypse, the Sierra Club, West Oakland Environmental Indicators Project, Baykeeper, and more allies to expose this outrageous attempt to buy the Oakland mayor’s race. Come to the rally and press conference to oppose toxic pollution of our local election.

Speakers: Ms. Margaret Gordon, No Coal in Oakland and West Oakland Environmental Indicators Project; Igor Tregub, Sierra Club; Julia Dowell, SF Baykeeper; Georgia Wallace, Marlay’ja, Youth vs. Apocalypse; and representatives from 350 Bay Area, Communities for a Better Environment, and Service Employees International Union, Local 1021

For clean air and clean elections,

Your 350 East Bay Team

PS You’re also invited to the Climate & Public Health Summit on November 18th.

PPS Our monthly 350 East Bay meeting is happening Saturday, November 19th at 10:30am on zoom. RSVP here to join us to talk about what SF and Bay Area activists are working on now.

Youth Climate March and Movement Celebration @ Embarcadero Plaza
Nov 10 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Where: Meet at � Embarcadero Plaza, San Francisco

Youth Vs. Apocalypse is hosting a Bay Area Action in San Francisco as part of the Global Climate Strike on November 10, 2022. This is the youth’s response to failed negotiations and 27 years of delay on substantial climate action by world leaders. The gathering will demonstrate that youth leaders CAN can hep us be the change we want to see in the world, regardless of the outcomes of the negotiations at COP27.

We are coming together to confront the systems that sacrifice our lives for a profit, including climate-destroying fossil fuel companies and those who profit from and promote militarism and war. Youth are gathering to show that they are not disposable and that young people and the planet must be protected from all forms of violence. Adult allies are invited to attend and march behind the youth leaders.

Support Windfall Profit Tax on Big Oil @ Chevron Gas Station
Nov 28 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Oil companies are exploiting a global crisis to jack up prices at the gas pump and rake in massive profits while driving a cost of living crisis for Californians. They blame California’s environmental protections, but we know it’s polluter greed sending prices sky high, plain and simple.

This Monday will be a day of action (organized by Last Chance Alliance) across the state to enact a windfall profits cap proposal that will be voted in the CA legislature in the week of December 5th. In the Bay Area, activists will gather at the Chevron station at 5500 Telegraph Avenue in Oakland at 4:00pm to encourage Governor Newsom’s support of the tax and to shift the narrative around gas prices to one that frames big oil greed as the problem.

If you’re free, come join us at 4pm on Monday to hold signs and make our voices heard. Support the action on social media with hashtags

#PolluterGreed #TheyProfitWePay and #PollutersPayUp and tag @LastChance_CA, @CAGovernor and @GavinNewsom.

No Dirty Deal: Make the Call

In September, activists stood up to Senator Manchin and Senator Schumer and defeated a dirty side deal that would undermine one of our bedrock environmental laws, fast-track fossil fuels, and sacrifice fence-line communities Unfortunately, during the final weeks of this Congress, lawmakers are now poised to revive the dirty deal. Can you take a few minutes to call your congressperson to say this dirty deal has go to die?

Call 917-791-2257 to be connected to your member of Congress.

Suggested script:

“Hi, my name is ____, & I’m from ____. I’m deeply concerned about the Energy Independence and Security Act and any legislation that would fast-track fossil fuel projects and undermine the public’s ability to give input on new energy projects. As your constituent I’m calling to demand that you publicly oppose this dirty deal and do all you can to stop it from being attached to must-pass legislation and passing!”

With Love and Rage and Action,

Education Not Privatization – Oakland
Nov 30 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
4:00PM Meet at OUSD Headquarters (1000 Broadway)
5:00PM March to the School board meeting at La Escuelita (1050 2nd Ave)
Since May 2022 and amidst a historic teacher shortage, OUSD has retaliated against 4 OUSD educators – Denise Huffstutler, Paloma Collier, Craig Gordon, and June Nelson – for their active involvement in the fight against school closures.

Denise Huffstutler, a former Parker instructional coach who spoke out against the closure of that school, received a letter of reprimand for failing to return her keys at the end of the year despite reporting them as missing, which has led to an ongoing investigation and a record in her file. June Nelson, Paloma Collier, and Craig Gordon were all fired and blacklisted from employment with OUSD for their involvement in the Parker occupation, a 125-day direct action protesting school closures, and for other political and union activities.

OUSD’s actions violate a February 2022 letter from Chief Governance Officer Josh Daniels to Moses Omolade and André San-Chez, then engaged in a 20+ day hunger strike to protest school closures. Daniels’s letter states that “OUSD will not retaliate against any OUSD employee involved in protesting school closures […] or supporting those who are involved in such protests.”

Tell CPUC: Keep Solar Growing! @ TBA
Dec 1 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Join a statewide day of rallies to save rooftop solar in California!

So many of us resisted the Public Utilities Commission’s proposed attack on rooftop solar that they backed down—a little.  But their new proposal would still make it much harder for people who don’t currently have solar to get it.

The revised proposal eliminates the planned fee that rooftop solar owners would have to pay for connection to the grid.  But new solar owners would still have to pay a $15/month “electrification charge.”

And, like the previous proposal, the new one would drastically cut the rates paid to rooftop solar owners for electricity they sell back to the grid—by an average of about 75% for homeowners, and even more for churches, schools, and small businesses.  This would eliminate the financial benefits of going solar.  And it would take people many years to recover the amount they invested in the solar panels, making that investment impossible for many homeowners and small businesses.

These changes would not affect current solar panel owners, but apply to new solar users starting April 2023. When changes like these have been implemented elsewhere in the US, solar adoptions have dropped by a lot.

The CPUC will vote on this proposal December 15.  Join a rally telling them not to stop rooftop solar from growing!

Stop the Killer Robots! @ SF City Hall, Polk St. Steps
Dec 5 @ 9:30 am – 10:30 am

In a surreal meeting last Tuesday, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors approved on first reading a military equipment use policy that explicitly allows the use of robots outfitted with bombs to blow people up. The policy allows 3 high-level command officers to employ robot bombs based on their “evaluation” that other things wouldn’t work. The Robocop policy passed on an 8-3 vote.

This isn’t the world we want to live in. The “evaluations”  of a police department which received 272 recommendations to improve its racist policing practices just six years ago, aren’t adequate. The supervisors admit that virtually everyone who has written to them says no to the killer robots.

The second vote is on Tuesday afternoon. It needs to come out differently. Here is what you can do to make this happen.

1) Come to a rally and press conference at SF City Hall

2)  Email the Board at (Several members of the board have taken umbrage at the term “killer robots” as hyperbole. Therefore, when you write to the Board, we suggest you use the term “robots that kill” instead).

Background: David Chiu, then a State Assembly member and now the SF City Attorney, authored AB 481 to require governmental transparency about the use and acquisition of militarized equipment by civilian police agencies. Governor Newsom signed the bill into law. The law requires policies for existing equipment stocks. SF owns 17 robots, which were purchased for bomb and suspicious package disposal. This policy would set out the rules of the road for the 17 robots. No legislative body in the Bay Area has yet explicitly permitted the use of robots outfitted with weapons (bombs or guns) against civilian populations.

Dec 15 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Defense of Mumia Rally
Mumia Is innocent!

But this innocent, framed-up man has been held for over four decades in prison. Mumia is an internationally known political prisoner. As a former Black Panther and MOVE supporter, Mumia was framed for a crime he did not commit because he criticized the racist criminal justice system as a radio journalist. The evidence that should free him has now come to light, after being kept in the dark by the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office.
Now, he will hear a judgement on his case for freedom in the Philadelphia PA Court of Common Pleas on the 16th of December.

Extinction Rebellion: Joye Braun Day of Action @ San Francisco Federal Bldg
Jan 20 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

January 20th marks the 2 year anniversary of President Biden’s inauguration, and the halfway point for his current administration. It also marks the birthday of an extraordinary activist and pillar of the national fossil fuel resistance movement, Joye Braun, who we sadly lost in November. Joye was instrumental in fighting and ending devastating fossil fuel projects such as Keystone XL – we are also celebrating the two year anniiversary of its death – and the Dakota Access Pipeline.

We are showing up, along with People vs. Fossil Fuel groups across the country, to demand that Biden exercise his power to Stop Fossil Fuel Projects and Declare a Climate Emergency. Our local climate fights show why.  We’ve continued to see flaring at the Martinez Refinery just in this last month, health and pollution concerns from the Chevron Richmond Refinery, and countless instances of our frontline communities facing harsh impacts from poor air quality, toxic substances, and limited resources. The climate emergency is already here – we need Biden to step up and do something about it.

Join us at the SF Federal Building on Jan. 20th from 11am-1pm for a rally with speakers and art, as we demand that President Biden:

  1. Declare a Climate Emergency
  2. Stop All Fossil Fuel Projects
  3. Honor Indigenous & Human Rights.

RSVP here.

As Martin Luther King, Jr. so correctly reminded us, the U.S. is the greatest purveyor of violence in the world. Since WWII, the US has initiated more than 60 military interventions in foreign countries. The US/NATO proxy war in Ukraine, brings the US in direct confrontation with a major nuclear power as does the U.S. provocation against China over Taiwan, and now Japan! It is extremely important that we build a strong, unified antiwar movement that can break through the media propaganda and censorship and end the US military aggression around the world.

Actions linking ALL the continuing US wars and sanctions will be a unifying focus and help break through the propaganda that saturates each and every war.

“We are now experiencing the coming to the surface of a triple prong sickness that has been lurking within our body politic from its very beginning. That is the sickness of racism, excessive materialism and militarism.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’
