E. J. Dionne: Code Red: How Progressives and Moderates Can Unite to Save Our Country @ Hillside Club
Feb 27 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

New York Times bestselling author and Washington Post columnist E. J. Dionne sounds the alarm in Code Red, calling for an alliance between progressives and moderates to seize the moment and restore hope to Americas future for the 2020 presidential election.

Will progressives and moderates feud while America burns? Or will they take advantage of the greatest opportunity since the New Deal Era to strengthen American democracy, foster social justice, and turn back the threats of the Trump Era?

The country is at a crossroads. Principled opposition to Trumps presidency has drawn millions of previously disengaged citizens to the streets and to the ballot boxes. This growing activism for political change hasnt been seen since the days of Franklin Roosevelts New Deal policies and the Progressive and Civil Rights movements. But if progressives and moderates are unableand unwillingto overcome their differences, they could not only enable Trump to prevail again but also squander an occasion for launching a new era of reform.

Dionne calls for a shared commitment to decency and a politics focused on freedom, fairness, and the future, encouraging progressives and moderates to explore common ground and expand the unity that brought about Democrat victories in the 2018 elections. He offers a unifying model for furthering progress with a Politics of Remedy, Dignity, and More: one that solves problems, resolve disputes, and moves forward; that posits a positive future for Americans with more covered by health insurance, more with decent wages, more with good schools, more security from gun violence, more action to roll back climate change. Because at this point in our national story, change cant wait.

A thrilling book, from one of Americas most universally respected minds. —  Rachel Maddow

E.J. DIONNE, JR., is a columnist for The Washington Post, Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution, visiting professor at Harvard University, and professor at Georgetown University. He is a co-author of the recent New York Times bestseller One Nation After Trump and author of Why the Right Went Wrong.

Join us for three hours of solving puzzles Friday, February 28th from 7 to 10pm!

This quarter’s Puzzles for Justice is a fundraiser for CRC’s Safety, Survival & Self Determination Program. Think of it like a walk-a-thon except instead of raising money based how far people walk, we’re raising money based on how many puzzle pieces we can put together (a puzzle-a-thon?).

You can help out by either coming to the event and helping us put these puzzles together, or by sponsoring us by signing up to donate some money for each puzzle piece we put together here: https://puzzlesforjustice.typeform.com/to/QZKJKD.

It’s also a time to relax, chat, be social with fellow racial-justice-minded folks!

For participants, we’ll have tea and snacks and a chance to have fun and put your puzzle-solving skills to work for a great cause! This is a multi-racial, anti-racist, sober, and kid-friendly space. We also try to maintain a low-scent space, so please arrive as scent-free as possible!

Solve puzzles! Get to know your fellow activists better! Invite your friends!

Can’t attend, but still want to support this awesome cause? Sign up to be a Puzzles for Justice sponsor here: https://puzzlesforjustice.typeform.com/to/QZKJKD?fbclid=IwAR1R6WToteC1O1MyElyWAQ-VITGP6ghOn-Ah9LH-Jj9IZUGbisaRb9xU53s

Community Ready Corps (CRC) is a Black grassroots organization working to organize and empower disenfranchised communities the community towards self determination and equity. They believe that a community should be able to engage with power wherever power is expressed and that resistance must be rooted in achieving a self-determined existence. Because of this fundamental belief, they are launching their Safety, Survival & Self-Determination Program which has begun its efforts by giving out masks after recent devastating fires, and will continue with assembling & giving out Earthquake Kits for free to Black communities throughout Oakland. All money raised from the event will go to CRC for this program. Learn more about CRC & their Safety, Survival & Self Determination program here: https://www.getreadystayready.org.

Richard Wolff: Understanding Socialism @ First Presbytarian Church of Berkeley
Feb 28 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

KPFA Radio 94.1 FM and Democracy at Work present:

RICHARD D. WOLFF
Understanding Socialism
With Sabrina Jacobs

advance tickets: $12: T: 800-838-3006 or independent bookstores, $15 door, benefits KPFA Radio 94.1FM info: kpfa.org/events

“Richard Wolff’s book is the best accessible and reliable treatment we have of what socialism is, was, and should be.” – Cornel West

A blend of history, analysis, and theory, Understanding Socialism is an honest and approachable text that knocks down false narratives, confronts failures and the challenges of various socialist experiments throughout history, and offers a path to a new socialism based on workplace democracy. The crises of global capitalism (inequality, instability, unsustainability, and incipient fascism) deepen daily. Consider Trump’s and Boris Johnson’s desperate extreme-right efforts to be re-elected, and consider that total global debts (of corporations, governments, and households) tripled between 1999 and 2019. Brazil’s Bolsonaro blames Leonardo di Caprio for burning the Amazon. Vast crowds in Chile, Lebanon, and France are in the streets demanding basic economic change. These and many other symptoms expose a declining system in mounting troubles.

“In the same accessible style that has made his programs and lectures such a hit, he explains his subject in a way that’s not only smart, but makes the rest of us feel smart. It’s actionable intelligence for every person.” – Laura Flanders

“Lucid, brilliant and uncompromising in his dissection of the capitalist system, he also provides a sane and just socialist alternative to capitalist exploitation, one we must all fight to achieve.” – Chris Hedges

Sabrina Jacobs is host and producer of the popular A Rude Awakening, aired on KPFA Radio Monday afternoons. She covers local breaking news as well as global events, informing listeners about the latest social injustices.

$12 advance, $15 door.

Occupy Oakland General Assembly @ Oscar Grant Plaza
Mar 1 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

The Occupy Oakland General Assembly meets every Sunday at 3 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 3:00 PM we meet in the basement of the Omni Collective, 4799 Shattuck Ave., Oakland.  (Note: we meet at 3:00 PM during the cooler months,  once Daylight Savings Time springs forward we tend to assemble at 4 PM).

On every ‘last Sunday’ we meet a little earlier at 2 PM to have a community potluck to which all are welcome.

ooGAOO General Assembly has met on a continuous basis for over 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. 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.

Friends of the Public Bank of the East Bay @ Mudrakers Cafe
Mar 2 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Next Organizers’ Meeting!

If you would like to come early and get an introduction to the concepts of public banking, or more locally to who we are and what we do, please email us and someone will come meet you at 5:30.

Working Group Meetings:

Some of our working groups meet between organizers’ meetings, and others just confer by phone and email. You can plug into any one of these:

  • Outreach to Organizations
  • Outreach to Individuals
  • Digital Outreach
  • Advocacy (working with politicians)
  • Governance
  • California Public Banking Alliance
  • Fundraising
  • Operations

Just send us a note and we’ll help you get connected to the work you want to do.

On October 2, 2019, Governor Newsom signed the law enabling local public bank charters in California. We have made history! And we have more history to make! Follow our latest news page for new developments. We’re keeping an updated list of articles about the bill and other public banking news.

People want DIVESTMENT.

The cities of Berkeley, Oakland, and Richmond (not to mention Seattle, Santa Fe, etc., etc.) have all voted for divesting from pipelines and fossil fuels, but none of them have carried through. Why not? Because there is literally no clean bank big enough to handle their deposits.

People want LOCAL REINVESTMENT.

Our cities are teeming with urban problems, almost all of them disproportionately affecting black and brown populations: homelessness, gentrification pushing out marginalized communities, desperate infrastructure needs, impoverished parks and recreation programs, struggling local businesses, lack of local jobs, and so much more. Yet we send between 7 and 15 cents out of every tax dollar out of our cities forever, and into the hands of Wall Street bank shareholders, who couldn’t care less about our streets and our schools. When those banks profit from our tax revenues, they send the money straight into their own pockets. It’s like paying sales tax on our own money to greedy corporations.

People want A PUBLIC BANK.

The Bank of North Dakota, one of two public banks currently existing in the United States, not only saves the state of North Dakota that 7 to 15 cents per dollar, but also makes money. In 2017, its return on investment was 17%! In 2008, North Dakota didn’t have a foreclosure crisis, because the Bank of North Dakota didn’t invest in risky mortgages. And if you live in North Dakota, or go to college there, the bank will buy back your student loan … and restructure it to give you a 4% interest rate.

The East Bay can have our trifecta:

  • DIVESTMENT
  • LOCAL REINVESTMENT
  • THE PUBLIC BANK OF THE EAST BAY

We are very closely allied with the California Public Banking Alliance, where nine regional California activist groups are working together to facilitate statewide change and make public banks more feasible.

We support the Green New Deal, which includes the stated intent to rely on a network of public banks for funding.

Oscar Grant Committee Meeting @ Niebyl-Proctor Library
Mar 2 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
 The Oscar Grant Committee Against Police Brutality & State Repression (OGC) is a grassroots democratic organization that was formed as a conscious united front for justice against police brutality. The OGC is involved in the struggle for police accountability and is committed to stopping police brutality.

On that day the ILWU shut down the Bay Area ports in solidarity. Our mission is to educate, organize and mobilize people against police and state repression. Sisters and brothers! The Oscar Grant Committee invites you to join us in this vital struggle.

We meet on the 1st Monday of each month

Marxists Behaving Badly @ Niebyl Proctor Library
Mar 8 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm


Why don’t Marxists study the Soviet experience in order to learn what these pioneers of the communist movement did, and what we can learn from them?
For Marx, as for all materialists, practice was – is — primary. Theory must be tested through practice. To base theory on the basis of a false understanding of reality is as fatal to knowledge as it would be to base theory, as idealists do, on ideas alone, without regard to material reality.
The Stalin era was the heroic era of the worldwide communist movement. Indeed, the 20th century may be fairly described as the “Soviet century,” since all the important political and social events and upheavals took place with reference to the Soviet Union.
If, following Marx, we want to build an egalitarian, communist society, we must study the practice of those who came before us in this endeavor. That means studying the Soviet Union after the Bolshevik Revolution, especially the period when Joseph Stalin was in the leadership of the Bolshevik Party and the Soviet state.
Why don’t today’s Marxists do this? My talk will explore the reasons for this fatal neglect and urge a corrective. — Grover Furr, Montclair State University

Oakland Tenants Union monthly meeting @ Madison Park Apartments, community room
Mar 9 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

OTU’s Mission

The Oakland Tenants Union is an organization of housing activists dedicated to protecting tenant rights and interests. OTU does this by working directly with tenants in their struggle with landlords, impacting legislation and public policy about housing, community education, and working with other organizations committed to furthering renters’ rights. The Oakland Tenants Union is open to anyone who shares our core values and who believes that tenants themselves have the primary responsibility to work on their own behalf.

Monthly Meetings

The Oakland Tenants Union meets regularly at 7:00 pm on the second Monday evening of each month. Our monthly meetings are held in the Community Room of the Madison Park Apartments, 100 – 9th Street (at Oak Street, across from the Lake Merritt BART Station). To enter, gently knock on the window of the room to the right of the main entrance to the building. At the meetings, first we focus on general issues affecting renters city-wide and then second we offer advice to renters regarding their individual concerns.

If you have an issue, a question, or need advice about a tenant/landlord issue, please call us at (510) 704-5276. Leave a message with your name and phone number and someone will get back to you.

Red State Revolt Reading Group @ East Bay Community Space
Mar 9 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The largest strike wave in the US in decades has been occurring for the last two years, and it is not over! Teachers and other public education workers have responded to austerity politics, poor working conditions, low pay, and the erosion of opportunity for their students with a newfound militancy. From West Virginia to Oakland and Los Angeles, this is a national phenomenon. What are its roots? Who are its leaders? What does it mean for the future of public education? For organized labor?

These are the topics explored by Eric Blanc’s Red State Revolt: The Teachers’ Strikes and Working Class Politics (Verso Press, 2019).

Come to the reading group launch on March 9th where we will:

  • Hear Oakland teachers reflect on their experiences in the OEA strike of last spring
  • See a presentation on the history of California education unionism from Fred Glass

Who should join? Educators, labor activists, parents, Easy Bay DSA members, and anyone else interested in learning more about the power of working class solidarity. We will meet every other week for ten weeks (four sessions).

Red State Revolt is the second book chosen in a series of Labor Reading Groups sponsored by the East Bay DSA Labor Committee. Copies of the book will be available for a suggested donation at the March 9 event (NOTAFLOF).

To RSVP in advance, go here.

Sanctions Kill!
Sanctions are War!
End Sanctions Now!

Join us for a Bay Area educational forum as part of the international days of protest against US-imposed sanctions and war on Saturday, March 14, 2:30 – 5:00 p.m. at Restore Oakland, 1419 34th Avenue (at International) in Oakland. Help us build a strong movement against US-imposed sanctions and war. Sponsored by the International Action Center – Bay Area.

Speakers include:
Rhonda Ramiro-Director, BAYAN
Pierre Labossiere, Haiti Action Committee
Bilal Mafundi Ali, Black Alliance for Peace
Teresa Walsh and Nesbit Crutchfield, Venceremos Brigade – Bay Area
David Paul, Embassy Protection Collective

Local endorsers include: BAYAN-USA, Black Alliance for Peace, Task Force on the Americas, International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity, International Action Center – Bay Area, Venceremos Brigade, Bay Area, David Paul, Embassy Protection Collective, Workers World Party – Bay Area, Socialist Action, Mobilization to Free Mumia Abu Jamal.

Sanctions are imposed by the United States and its junior partners against countries that resist their agendas. They are a weapon of Economic War, resulting in chronic shortages of basic necessities, economic dislocation, chaotic hyperinflation, artificial famines, disease, and poverty. In every country, the poorest and the weakest – infants, children, the chronically ill and the elderly – suffer the worst impact of sanctions.

US imposed sanctions, violate international law and are a tool of regime change. They impact a third of humanity in 39 countries. They are a crime against humanity used, like military intervention, to topple popular governments and movements. They provide economic and military support to pro-US right-wing forces.

The US economic dominance and its +800 military bases worldwide demands all other countries participate in acts of economic strangulation. They must end all normal trade relations, otherwise they risk having Wall Street’s guns pointed at them. The banks and financial institutions that are responsible for the devastation of our communities at home drive the plunder of countries abroad.

Many organizations have been fighting Sanctions and Economic War for some time. NOW is an opportunity to combine efforts to raise consciousness on this crucial issue.

This broad campaign will include protests and demonstrations, lobbying, petition drives and all forms of educational efforts.
