Court Support for Anti-Fascists @ Sacramento Court House, Dept 63
Feb 13 @ 8:30 am – 11:00 am
The charges are as follows: Felarca: felony assault with great bodily injury, misdemeanor riot and misdemeanor inciting riot Williams: felony assault with a deadly weapon, misdemeanor riot Paz: misdemeanor assault, misdemeanor riot This is a gross miscarriage of justice. The prosecutor’s case at the evidentiary hearing relied heavily on unauthenticated video and a single witness, the CHP officer, Ayres. His testimony made crystal clear the selective nature and bias of his “investigation” into the protest on June 26, 2016. He was loathe to even characterize the Traditionalist Workers Party as … Continued

We’ll be talking to her about the new tech activism, and the politics of a life lived online. Honeywell founded two hackerspaces (HackLabTO in Toronto, and the Seattle Attic Community Workshop in Seattle), created the … Continued

No Coal In Richmond @ Bobby Bowens Progressive Center
Feb 13 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Coal outta Richmond! Mile-long coal trains of 100 open railcars run through Richmond’s residential neighborhoods and are unloaded at the Levin-Richmond Terminal, only a few blocks from homes, schools, and workplaces. As we transition to a fossil-free future, the coal industry is maintaining its profits by increasing exports. Coal-burning power plants in China, Korea and Japan make West Coast ports such as Richmond prime targets for coal exports. These power plants have been cited as being a main reason for the increase in the carbon that is accelerating our climate … Continued

When Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and The Progressive Labor Party (PL) splintered in June 1969, a majority of the delegates supported the program of its Worker-Student Alliance caucus. These candid accounts by WSA activists bring to life their struggles to end the Vietnam War and achieve social justice-and evaluate both WSA’s successes and its failure to achieve its promise. The contributors in this book were mostly members of WSA, whose formation was initiated by the Maoist Progressive Labor Party. Here they recount and evaluate their participation in the … Continued
