Climate Activists Show Up for Essential Workers


July 20, 2020 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Mosswood Park
3612 Webster St.

Join Sunflower Alliance, the Sunrise Movement, and other climate activists to support workers at the Oakland Telegraph Ave. MacDonald’s, who have been on strike since May demanding PPE, sick pay, hazard pay and social distancing.

The workers report that they were asked to wear dog diapers for PPE,  that they got no sick pay when they were sick and thought they had COVID, and that the store was not enforcing social distancing. Of the 33 workers, 12 ended up getting COVID and 31 of them are now on strike. See news story here

Join Fight for 15 for a short march/rally on July 20, a national day of action for Fight for 15., starting at 11 am at Mosswood Park, then march to the Telegraph McDonald’s (march route here) where there will be a noon rally.
