Film Screening: ‘Our Island’s Treasure’ (Okinawa) @ EastSide Arts Alliance
Jul 26 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

EastSide Arts Alliance, the Global Uchinanchu Alliance (GUA) and the Okinawa Kenjinkai Study Group (OKSG) present:
Final Fridays Films of Solidarity & Resistance
“Our Island’s Treasure”

film screening, Q and A with the filmmaker, and yuntaku/talk story

Have you heard about what’s been going on in Henoko, Okinawa? What is #RiseForHenoko? Maybe you’ve heard about how local residents have been protesting the building of a new U.S. military base in Oura Bay? The ongoing landfill work to create this base is destroying thousand-year-old coral reef structures, and threatens the aquatic life in the bay, including the Dugong, a manatee-like marine mammal that is close to extinction.

Maybe you’ve heard about the February 2019 Okinawan prefectural referendum, where 71.7% of Okinawans voted in opposition to the new base? Despite the democratic opposition of the indigenous Okinawans, the Japanese government continues to push forward with the land reclamation process.

A lack of U.S. media attention has meant that most people in the United States don’t know about the social and environmental crisis in Okinawa that worsens every day. Teenaged filmmaker Kaiya Yonamine created a documentary this year to shed light on what’s going on. She explains on her website, https://www.riseforhenoko.com:

My name is Kaiya, and I am a 17-year old Okinawan-American high school student from Portland, Oregon. I recently went back to Henoko this spring because I was frustrated with the silence of the media around this crisis.

I wanted to make a documentary to show the world what’s happening. My documentary, “Our Island’s Treasure,” focuses on the current destruction of the beautiful Okinawan ocean in Henoko and the fight by native Uchinanchu people to protect it. Please help spread awareness.

Potluck before Occupy Oakland General Assembly @ Oscar Grant Plaza
Jul 28 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

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.

The Occupy Oakland General Assembly meets every Sunday at 4 PM at Oscar Grant Plaza amphitheater at 14th Street & Broadway near the steps of City Hall.

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.

Truth Act Forum – Contra Costa Sheriff and ICE, Etc @ Contra Costa Administrative Bldg
Jul 30 @ 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm

The Contra Costa Immigrant Rights Alliance would like to invite you to be part of the Second annual TRUTH Act Forum. Last year we packed the Board of Supervisors Chambers with over 200 people. We demanded Sheriff Livingston provide answers regarding his collaboration with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). For more than two hours, community raised concerns, asked questions, and demanded transparency from the county. Despite all of that, no answers were provided to the public, but community kept pushing for transparency and justice. We learned that in 2017 63 residents were transferred to ICE under his department, with no further information or data provided on the 63 people turned over to ICE.

Additionally, Sheriff Livingston continues to oversee the jails, where the same terrible conditions are happening. For the past year there have been 5 deaths and counting at the jails under Sheriff Livingston’s watch. Contra Costa continues to have an issue of lack of accountability. Thus, our urgency to make this year’s TRUTH forum an issue about lack of accountability and transparency. No more deaths at the jail, No more pol-ice collaboration!

Hold PG&E Accountable! @ Various
Jul 31 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Public Utilities Commission: Hold PG&E Accountable!

PG&E’s negligence has caused fires that killed dozens of Californians. Now they want to make us pay for their negligence. PG&E is asking the California Public Utilities Commission  (CPUC) for permission to raise our rates to pay their expenses for liability payments and for the safety measures they were supposed to be doing all along.

According to the district court judge overseeing PG&E’s probation for its felony criminal convictions, PG&E “pumped out $4.5 billion in profits and let the tree [trimming] budget wither.” They have not yet paid anything to victims of the Camp Fire — but they found $204,800 to contribute to Gov. Newsom’s gubernatorial campaign

Tell the CPUC to stop the rate hikes and hold PG&E accountable! Join The Utility Reform Network, the No PG&E Bailout Coalition, and others at CPUC hearings on the proposed rate hikes. The CPUC will hold these hearings throughout the PG&E service area in July in August. In the Bay Area:

San Francisco, July 9, 1 PM
CPUC Auditorium, 505 Van Ness Ave.
* Webcast: www.adminmonitor.com/ca/cpuc
* Listen-only phone line: 1-877-937-0554, passcode: 7031793

Oakland, July 24, 1 PM and 6 PM
Elihu M. Harris State Office Building Auditorium, 1515 Clay St.,

Santa Rosa, July 31, 1 PM and 6 PM
Santa Rosa City Hall Council Chamber, 100 Santa Rosa Ave.
* Webcast: www.youtube.com/user/CityofSantaRosa or www.facebook.com/CityofSantaRosa
* Listen-only phone line: 1-877-937-0554, passcode: 7031793
* Santa Rosa residents will also be able to view the broadcast through the television on the Government Channels (Comcast 28 or AT&T 72)

Oscar Grant Committee Meeting @ Niebyl-Proctor Library
Aug 5 @ 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.

In alliance with the International Longshore & Warehouse Union (ILWU) we organized the October 23, 2010 labor and community rally for Justice for Oscar Grant. 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
You can join our discussion list by sending a blank (doesn’t even need a subject) email to
