What to bring
Everybody is welcome; you do not need to be a hacker to come to the hackathon. Bring ideas, or things you want to learn or teach.
Come by before the OO BBQ at Rainbow Park starts or stop by afterwards.
Check out some of the COOL things folks created at Hackathon I, like the metameme of the Pepper Spray Cop and comparison of mainstream media coverage of Occupy versus tweets about #OWS.
A mosaic image of the Pepper Spraying Cop was created, composed of many tiny remixed Pepper Spraying Cop images.
Comparison of surface area newspapers devoted to Occupy coverage to tweets of #OWS and #Occupy related hashtags over time. Results show that movement-created information distributed via Twitter is a more reliable, grassroots source of information than mainstream media.

Doors open at 6 PM, Music starts at 7 PM
David’s music is almost all Creative Commons and he puts it out there for free download, or you can pigeon-hole Fat Ed and he can give you a pile of mp3s. Check out Rovics’ web site here: http://davidrovics.com/
Hopefully there will be some rudimentary grub and maybe even beverages for sale, Ed has got to check with the library.
Today, there was a fatal shooting in Newtown, CT that cost us the lives of children and teachers. Fatality from gun violence is something the people of Oakland face on a daily basis. From Oakland to Newtown to Afghanistan, we will hold a space that says, “These lives matter, enough is enough. Violence is systemic, root to canopy, state to individual.”
Please join us at OGP, at 6pm this Friday, December 14, 2012. Wear black, bring your candles, your signs, your grief, your poetry, and music and thoughts. We will have a silent candlelit funereal procession through the streets of Oakland in honor of those who have died this year as a result of gunfire and then hold vigil in the amphitheater, where people can stay, talk, and heal as a community.
A BARBECUE FOR HERBIVORES AND CARNIVORES ALIKE
Sunday, May 25
Noon to 10:00PM
3413 Belmont Ave., El Cerrito 94530
The time of year cries out for a backyard party to ring in the outdoor season, and there’s no more benevolent use for carbon as a fuel than a barbecue. Also, we’ll be saying “Keep in touch” to our great friend Hannah who will be leaving in June for Gomorrah – the City of Angels – with her family.
AND we’re anticipating a visit from Occupy Oakland’s candidate for Mayor – Einstein! Come and meet the candidate and hear his views on Jean Quan, squirrels, and cows!
There will be plenty of music from Mike’s disturbingly eclectic collection. Food will be provided by Eat Don’t Worry, but please – if you can – bring something to share.

in calling for the release of
OSCAR LOPEZ RIVERA
Friday, May 29, 2015
Market & Powell St., SF
5:00 P.M. until 7:00 P.M.
The San Francisco Support Committee for the unconditional release of Puerto Rican political prisoner Oscar López Rivera, calls all political, civic, religious, labor unions and the community in general to join us to demand his freedom.
Oscar López Rivera has spent thirty four years of his life imprisoned due to his unbending commitment for the independence and self-determination of our Puerto Rican nation.
Petitions from all over the globe supporting his unconditional release have been sent to the President of the United States from Nobel Prize Laureates such as Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu from South Africa, and Carlos Esquivel from Argentina to name a few.
The current Governor of Puerto Rico, Alejandro Garcia Padilla, as well as countless Puerto Rican artists and celebrities, and U.S. Congressional representatives, such as Luis Gutiérrez, José Serrano and Nydia Velázquez, have also made their voices heard in support of his immediate and unconditional release.
Add your voice!
