Flood Wall Street West– Mass March & Action to Shut Down Climate Profiteers

Flood the institutions that are profiting from the climate crisis.


One year ago, thousands of us flooded Wall Street in New York, taking mass direct action in the heart of a global financial system that’s fueling the climate crisis.

Now, a year later, people across the continent are preparing and organizing for #FloodTheSystem, a continental uprising against the economic and political systems threatening our survival.

To kick off #FloodTheSystem, we’re going to Flood Wall Street West: San Francisco’s financial district. Flood Wall Street West will consist of a tour of shame of some of the worst corporate and political bad actors in San Francisco’s financial district. We will take mass direct action to shut down business as usual and emphasize the connections between the climate crisis, capitalism, exploitation and oppression.

Come dressed in blue. We’ll have everything else you need, including chant sheets, banners, signs, props and art.

This is direct action for everybody. While many of us will risk arrest, everyone can participate safely, whether or not you’re willing to go to jail. We will lead a legal briefing and nonviolent direct action training before the march to make sure that everyone is prepared to participate.

If you’d like to get involved in organizing Flood Wall Street West or if you’d like to volunteer on the day of the march, sign up at

Organized by the Flood Wall Street West Welcoming Committee

Whole Foods Market Oakland

230 By Pl.


On Thursday Sept. 4th a Black man who was attempting to make a purchase with his EBT, was beaten and bloodied by armed security guards at the Lake Merritt Whole Foods. This adds to the national narrative around a crisis of anti-Black violence.

This adds to the ongoing discriminatory practices and anti-Black policies engaged by Whole Foods:

-Whole Foods materially supported the state violence in Baltimore

-Whole Foods depends on Prison Labor

-Whole Foods has a poor labor record

-Whole Foods was a significant gentrifying force in Oakland

Demands (few)

1.Disarm all security guards at the store
2. Compensate for the pain, suffering, and humiliation of the attack victim
3.Issue a public apology

They also held peace symposiums in Pyongyang and Seoul where we heard Korean women’s experiences of war and shared our experiences and ideas of mobilizing women to end violent conflict.

Twitter Inc.

Rally in front of the Twitter building

March to the County Jail at 850 Bryant St., for press conference and present demands on the SF Sherriff’s

All Died while in SF custody:


In recent weeks there has been a flurry of activity surrounding the untimely death of Black Lives Matter activist Sandra Bland. It is important that  brutal and unnecessary in-custody-death be challenged on all fronts.

Sandra Bland’s  case has aroused the reality that it is far from an isolated incident. In San Francisco County alone, there were no less than five “unnatural” in-custody-deaths in the last year

We will rally in front of the Twitter building and march to the County Jail, where we will hold our press conference and present demands on the SF Sherriff’s department and the City. (alternative transportation will be provided for people physically unable to march)

The location of the rally at the Twitter building is an acknowledgement of the role that #ifidieincustody, and #SayHerName have played in these affairs, as well as an acknowledgement of Musa, a disabled Black man who on August 4, 2015 was brutally assaulted by 14 SFPD officers right in front of the building,
