Thursday, 6:00pm – 8:00pm, We Resist! No KXL No DAPL
San Francisco Federal Building
90 – 7th Street
Stand up for clean air, water and soil!
Trump signed a memoranda to push through the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines.
By allowing these pipelines, Trump has confirmed his misguided commitment to the fossil fuel industry and total disregard for the millions of people who have stood against these dangerous projects. We will not stand idly by while he pushes through policies that make his friends in the fossil fuel industry more wealthy while violating Indigenous Treaty rights, using eminent domain to steal people’s land, poisoning the water, air and soil, and disavowing the overwhelming majority of scientists working to mitigate a climate catastrophe.

Friday January 27
Friday, 1:00pm – 4:00pm, Emergency March Nodapl Oakland
Oakland City Hall
1 Frank Ogawa Plaza
Trump signed an executive order green lighting the pipeline, this is not only illegal it is a devastating blow to the water protectors who are fighting so hard to preserve our future.
An injury to one is an injury to all. Because of this we support everyone struggling for their voices to be heard and to have the dignity of a life free from violence and oppression at the hands of the police, the US government, and its citizens.
We will be meeting at city hall on a day where people are going to be in it! We will then march to Bank of America and Wells Fargo, as they are actively funding the pipeline.

Saturday, 12Noon – 5:00pm, Silence is Violence Protest 1/28 (Title change)
555 California St. (BoA Building that Trump owns 30% of)
During this protest, we are going to maintain a focus on the recent decisions to move forward with the Dakota Access and Keystone XL Pipelines, but we are going to rename the event as to respect the indigenous leadership of the #NoDAPL movement.
Everyone has the right to protest oppression and state sanctioned violence (i.e., police brutality, lack of access to healthcare, prison, etc.) and express that in whatever way makes the most sense to them.

Saturday 12Noon – 1:00pm, Human Billboard: Black Lives Matter! No Trump Agenda in Oakland
Grand Lake Farmers Market
Join us under the awning of the Grand Lake Theater at Lakeshore and MacArthur Blvd. in Oakland, rain or shine, to call attention to racial injustice and demonstrate solidarity.
Locally and nationally, folks have been holding weekly gatherings on prominent street corners and freeway overpasses, holding signs and making visible our support for the Movement for Black Lives and communities targeted by Trump. These gatherings – or “human billboards” – have been a simple yet effective way of channeling anger and sadness over injustice into collective action and solidarity.
For those of us who are white, it’s a way to express a unified voice in opposition to Trump and the white nationalist politics he represents, and to commit to ending white silence and visibly supporting racial justice.
