2017 Mission St. (nr. 16th Street BART)
“Heist traces the worldwide economic collapse to a 1971 secret memo entitled “Attack on American Free Enterprise System”. Written over 40 years ago by the future Supreme Court Justice Lewis Powell at the behest of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the 6-page memo, a free-market utopian treatise, called for a money fueled big business makeover of government through corporate control of the media, academia, the pulpit, arts and sciences and destruction of organized labor and consumer protection groups.
Donald Goldmacher will lead discussion on the system as it is intentionally pushed toward oligarchy, and the problematic nature of this system.
Steve DiCaprio of Land Action will be at this Monday’s OccupyForum also to discuss his court date.

Hands Off Coltrane Church
The African Orthodox Church of St. John Coltrane – historic proprietors of music and culture of jazz in San Francisco is facing eviction from the Fillmore this week.
The Coltrane Church has been in San Francisco for 48 years, in that time the church has provided free vegetarian meals to the homeless, spiritual counseling to the community and has advocated for social and racial justice. The Church’s displacement from the Fillmore not only disrupts the Church and its work, but removes one of the few remaining institutions that survived so-called “redevelopment” – a government initiative that destroyed a once-vibrant African-American neighborhood.
For the past five months, the West Bay Conference Center Board members have evaded meetings with the Church to work out an agreement – even after the church attempted to pay $15,000. in rent. West Bay served the Coltrane Church an eviction notice scheduled for Wednesday, March 2nd.
The mission of West Bay Conference Center building, is to provide low cost and subsidized space for local community organizations, institutions, and businesses. Call the West Bay Board members and ask that they live up to its mission!
