Weekly Occupy Calendar (from Patricia Gray)

Please read this list of events of activists and plan to attend one.

We need to support each other as we try to change our government
to heed the bidding of the many, not the few.
                         It still is the 99% vs. the 1%.

 Wednesday July 27

5:30 – 6:30       Market and Montgomery St. S.F.
                       PEACE VIGIL 
                       Come join others under our peace banner to let
                       people know that all these wars must stop!  People 
                       have become complacent and the wars continue 
                       without any concern for these illegal attacks on the
                       people of the Middle East.  Not only are we killing 
                       thousands of people and causing waves of 
                       refugees to flee their homes, these wars are 
                       bankrupting our nation and causing cuts in our
                       domestic programs.  
                       sponsored by Code Pink, the World Can’t Wait and
                       the Occupy Action Council.
7:00 – 9:00 pm          Redstone Building, 2940 16th St. (near Bart)
                               UBER, WORKERS RIGHTS, TECH AND THE
                               PUBLIC
                               Panel discussion—teach in
                               The growth of Uber and the other technology
                               software companies have had a drastic affect
                               on the regulated Taxi industry, not just in San
                               Francisco, but all over the world.  The panel
                               will look at worker and public issues and how
                               workers are seeking to defend their wages and
                               living conditions.
                               sponsored by S.F. Taxi Workers Alliance
