https://bayaction2freeassange.org

Ok, folks, here’s the deal: the Main stream media (MSM) is so full of lies, it’s got the masses confused!!  There’s only a few places we can get the truth.

Chelsea and Julian, were two of the most important WHISTLE BLOWERS to tell the truth about USA’s illegal, immoral WARS. That’s why our “US leadership” wants them dead. USA is the largest TERRORIST country in history, killing, wounding, and forcing immigration on millions of folks all over the world!!

To us, saving Chelsea and Julian is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT! They told us the truth about the wars! And all the NEW MACARTHYISM.  is due to blaming Julian for being a puppet of Russia.  So much of all our issues stem from the honesty of Chelsea and Julian!! That’s why our govt. wants to kill them!

Please join us Fridays at our vigil/demo/music/potluck  at MacArthur and Fruitvale, and if you know other organizations around the state and the country, contact them and encourage them to organize to protect Chelsea and Julian as well!! We have some pretty good posters, but also bring your own. Thanks. gg and Orion

The Domestic Worker Movement: It’s History & Current Strategy @ Exact location TBD, see Facebook page for update
Aug 3 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Facebook event for location:

 

One event that combines the history of the Domestic Workers Movement with the current state of its organizing at the national level with Mariana Viturro, the Deputy Director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, with Kim Alvarenga of the Ca Domestic Workers Alliance, and Kathy Coll, professor of history at USF.

Background:
The Domestic Workers Movement has become one of the most powerful movements led by working class women of color, including Black women and immigrant women. This didn’t happen by accident. It has been built by diligent organizing over the past twenty five years and draws from its roots of resistance dating back to the enslavement of Native Americans and Africans by European colonists on this continent.

Come learn about that rich history with University of San Francisco Professor (and long-time Hand in Hand leader) Kathy Coll.

Then join a conversation with Mariana Viturro, the Deputy Director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and with Kim Alvarenga, the Director of the CA Domestic Workers Coalition, to learn about the current status of organizing in the Domestic Worker Movement and the many strategies being used to build power of domestic workers, transform the industry and prepare to win in critical elections in 2020.

Join us! Deepen your knowledge of this important social movement and learn about the specific opportunities for allies and employers to be a part of it.

Potluck before Occupy Oakland General Assembly
Aug 4 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Note: Normally our weekly feed is on the last Sunday, but there is a big event at the plaza July 28th, so we have rescheduled for August 4th if we can find servers.

Feed The People!

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

After the meal the Occupy Oakland General Assembly meets Sundays at 4 PM at the Oscar Grant Plaza amphitheater at 14th Street & Broadway. 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. During Daylights Losing Time in the Winter we meet at 3 PM at the plaza, & again, we retreat to the Omni if the rain is a pain.

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

General Assembly Standard Agenda

  1. Welcome & Introductions
  2. Reports from Committees, Caucuses, & Independent Organizations
  3. Announcements
  4. (Optional) Discussion Topic

Oppose ICE: Climate Justice, Environmental Justice, and Environmentalists @ ICE, San Francisco
Aug 5 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

What: Climate Justice, Environmental Justice, and Environmentalist day of action during the Month of Momentum.

Why: We are outraged and ashamed about the inhumanity at the border.  We want to show up as environmental activists in solidarity with other progressive, issue-focused groups in opposition to the brutally corrosive policies and politics of the current administration.

Many people around the world are fleeing their homes because of war, gang violence, poverty – and increasingly, people are becoming climate refugees, moving because their homes are becoming unlivable due to climate change (sea level rise, desertification, extreme heat, fires, etc.).

Details: Bring a sign or an idea for a sign linking the climate crisis to the immigrant crisis.  We will chant, sing, and walk in front of the ICE headquarters during the lunch hour.

This is an opportunity to contribute to strengthening social justice movements across a range of too-often-siloed issues and to contribute to strengthening the broad progressive movement that is necessary to counter rabid nationalism, racism, and greed at the rotten heart of forces aiming to destroy Earth for its current and future inhabitants.

Remembering Hiroshima & Nagasaki: Nuclear Weapons Protest Rally & March at Livermore Labs @ Livermore Labs
Aug 6 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm

ANNIVERSARIES OF HIROSHIMA & NAGASAKI ATOM BOMB DROPS:
Nuclear Weapons Protest Rally & March at Livermore Labs

Come commemorate the U.S. atomic bombings of Hiroshima (Aug. 6, 1945) and Nagasaki (Aug. 9, 1945) at the place where new nuclear weapons of mass destruction are being created today.

Hear from atom bomb survivor Nobuaki Hanaoka, famed author and whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, and other speakers and musicians.

Following the rally will be a procession to the West Gate where those who choose may risk arrest.

The resurgent risks of nuclear war and unresolved climate danger have caused the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists to keep the Doomsday Clock set at 2-minutes to the apocalyptic midnight hour. This is as close to global Armageddon as the clock has been since it was introduced in 1947.

By gathering on August 6, we will use the visible power of our presence to transform U.S. policy from violence to peace.

PARKING: Free parking is available. There will be van pools to and from the Dublin-Pleasanton BART Station. Call Tri- Valley CARES, 925.443.7148 to reserve your seat -space is limited.

THE LIVERMORE CONVERSION PROJECT NONVIOLENCE GUIDELINES

We agree to abide by the following guidelines in all of the August 6 actions:
–We will be open and respectful to everyone we meet
–We will not use verbal or physical violence
–We will not destroy property
–We will not bring drugs or alcohol except for medicinal purposes
–We will not bring weapons
–We will not run, which can cause panic
–If arrested, we will not resist
–If legal consequences follow our actions, we will treat all those we encounter in the process with openness and respect.

A Legal History of Whiteness @ Legal Cafe Law Centrer Office
Aug 6 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

This workshop will discuss the legal and social history of whiteness and how this impacts us today on a legal, economic, social, and spiritual level. RSVP below!

After setting up the framework for how whiteness developed in the early colonialism in the United States, we will engage in discussion questions about our own consciousness around whiteness and the way whiteness  works in our workplaces and lives. Bringing the historical and the spiritual together, we will together imagine what is beyond white supremacy. This workshop will draw from research from the Racial Equity Institute and an emerging organization that Tracy helped to start called Freedom Beyond. Read Tracy’s blog post People & Planet Over Programs & Profit here.

About the presenter: Tracy Bindel is a current intern for the Sustainable Economies Law Center. She is a white woman who has spent the last four years working to organize (mostly) white people to dismantle white support for white supremacy through the Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) Boston and through Freedom Beyond, an emergent collective that creates space for white people to face their whiteness in holistic community.  Tracy lives at the intersection of spirituality, justice, and alternative economies and loves creating spaces of ritual and practice in order to move people through grief and pain through healing.

Community Discussion on Attacks on Immigrants
Aug 6 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

I.C.E. here, coups there – U.S. out of everywhere!
Striking at the root of the attack on our communities

From the horrific border concentration camps, to family separations, to the string of deaths of detained children, to the arrest of solidarity activists leaving water for those crossing the border – the brutality and human rights violations by the U.S. government against immigrants are on the rise.

To fight back and win, we must have a deep understanding of the root cause of our oppression. Join us to look at the exploitative policies — followed by successive U.S. governments — that have ravaged nations over the last few decades, creating violence and poverty leaving our people no choice but to migrate to the United States. We’ll connect our struggles as oppressed peoples fighting for self-determination and invite folks to get involved in the organizing efforts for an upcoming mass action to demand no wall, no ban, no I.C.E., no concentration camps, and full rights and amnesty NOW!

Aug 9 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Join us for a FREE screening of Woman at War a new film from Magnolia Pictures, written & directed by Benedikt Erlingsson.

Halla is a fifty-year-old independent woman. But behind the scenes of a quiet routine, she leads a double life as a passionate environmental activist. Known to others only by her alias “The Woman of the Mountain,” Halla secretly wages a one-woman-war on the local aluminum industry. As Halla’s actions grow bolder, from petty vandalism to outright industrial sabotage, she succeeds in pausing the negotiations between the Icelandic government and the corporation building a new aluminum smelter. But right as she begins planning her biggest and boldest operation yet, she receives an unexpected letter that changes everything. Her application to adopt a child has finally been accepted and there is a little girl waiting for her in Ukraine. As Halla prepares to abandon her role as saboteur and savior of the Highlands to fulfill her dream of becoming a mother, she decides to plot one final attack to deal the aluminum industry a crippling blow.
