12. Friday, 7:00pm – 8:30pm, The War on Syria, Russia & the Trump Regime
2969 Mission St. (nr. 24th Street BART)
On April 7, Trump ordered missile strikes on Syria, escalating a war that has been going on for more than six years. While claiming to be fighting extremely reactionary forces like ISIS and Al-Qaeda, the U.S. leaders bombed the main force fighting the reactionaries—the Syrian army. Trump pretended to be motivated by the suffering of Syrian civilians, but every day the U.S. is bombing civilians in Iraq, Syria and Yemen, killing hundreds in the past month alone.
Where is this latest U.S. intervention leading? What are the dangers it poses for U.S.-Russia relations? How can we build the movement against war and oppression?

Emergency California Education Conference:
Let’s Fight for Quality and Free Public Education for All Students, Faculty and Staff
A strong public education system is the foundation of every just and democratic society. Yet for most working families—especially those from black and brown communities— the right to free, high-quality education seems further than ever: early childhood education is inaccessible to children whose parents can’t afford it; k-12 schools are starved of resources while the imposition of high-stakes tests penalizes low-income districts and the explosion of charters exacerbates segregation and inequality; college and graduate students are drowning in debt as tuition at the UC and CSU systems continues to rise; black and brown students are terrorized by police violence, constant raids, and ongoing deportations; LGBTQI students are brutally bullied for their sexual and gender identity; and most students today are delivered an education that does not embrace their histories and experiences and does not educate them for liberation.
