AN ONLINE OCCUPATION [OR A DIGITAL VACANCY] WE SHUT DOWN BIG TECH FOR A DAY Big Tech competes for one thing: our attention. They exploit our basic human instincts in the pursuit of unprecedented financial and cultural control. Facebook claims to connect us, but promotes individualism to its most divisive extreme. Amazon endorses endless consumption, prodding people to milk mother earth for all she’s worth. Apple infiltrates every strata of our lives, with the HomePod to the Apple Watch, ensuring its role in everything we do. Google outsources our desires, … Continued

Socialist Night School: What Exactly Is Neoliberalism? @ East Bay Community Space
Sep 18 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Over the past few years the term “neoliberalism” has become ubiquitous. But what is it exactly? Is it an ideology that espouses “free markets,” a political project to crush the labor movement, or an economic era of globalization and financialization? What is the relationship of neoliberalism to capitalism itself? How can democratic socialists best fight back against neoliberalism? Please join us as we grapple with these questions and many others! Required Readings See the readings that we’ll be discussing after a brief introduction from our members. RSVP    65080

Strike Debt Bay Area: Debt Resistance is NOT Futile! @ Omni Commons
Sep 22 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 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!
