Strike Debt Bay Area: Debt Resistance is NOT Futile! @ Omni Commons
Aug 12 @ 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm
Strike Debt is building a debt resistance movement. We believe that most individual debt is illegitimate and unjust. Most of us fall into debt because we are increasingly deprived of the means to acquire the basic necessities of life: health care, education, and housing. Because we are forced to go into debt simply in order to live, we think it is right and moral to resist it. Come get connected with SDBA’s projects! Presenting debt and inequality related topics at forums, workshops and in radio productions. Promoting single-payer / Medicare … Continued

Green Sunday: Child Internment Camps in the American Refugee Crisis @ Niebyl Proctor Library
Aug 12 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm
  Our presentation looks at the practice of separating children from their parents – a United States policy designed to be a deterrrent to refugees, many of them from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, who have been forced to immigrate and seek asylum at the southern border. Ten thousand children ripped away from their parents are currently in internment camps – a situation far more than cruel and unusual, but indispuutably evil because this brutal traumatization of children is unnecessary.  To help us look into the abyss and understand what … Continued
