12. Saturday, 5:00pm – 7:00pm,  National Call To Action! Justice for Diallo Neal!

Oakland City Hall
1 Frank Ogawa Plaza
Oakland

Together We Stand and Open Circle – Families United For Justice is announcing a National Day of Action for Justice for Diallo Neal. We are calling on all families and coalitions to join us and the mother of Diallo Neal, Gilda Baker, as we rally for an investigation to take place.

Diallo Neal was killed in a motorcycle “accident” in October 2005 after a chase with California Highway Patrol. Five years passed before his mother, Gilda Baker, began to put together the pieces of her son’s death. Eyewitnesses came forward saying that a CHP motorbike had shoved Diallo Neal, causing the fatal accident. A private investigator’s report revealed a number of issues with an inconsistent police narrative. We believe that Diallo Neal’s death was a homicide and that an investigation needs to take place.

14. Saturday, 8:30pm – 10:30pm, Native Nations: Inaate/Se-It Shines A Certain Way + Gomez-Pena+

Artist Television Access
992 Valencia St.
SF

In their break-out first feature, Ojibway filmmakers Adam (in person) and Zack Khalil fearlessly reclaim the Native narrative from the museums that would confine it to the past, instead weaving a formally and intellectually complex essay on contemporary Indian identity.

The kaleidoscopic experience mixes doc, narrative, and experimental modes, transcending linear colonized history to explore how tribal prophecy resonates through the generations in their Great Lakes region. Using personal interviews, animated drawings, performance, and provocative inter-cutting, the Khalil brothers’ debut makes a bold case for indigenous people to be their own storytellers.

This took place in the SF Mission District at Foote and Mission. There were multiple witnesses, his familiy bravely tried to help him, even pulling officers off him and his mother stopped an officer from further beating Michael with his baton.

Now the DA has charged Michael with 3 Felony Counts. Of course they don’t want this to go to trial, so they are going to offer Michael a plea deal.Michael has decided to reject the deal and take this to court. Please join him on Monday, April 24th and let him know he has our support!

Let the SFUSD School Board and administration know that we need a community-planned, and community serving development at 16th and Mission, not a monster luxury project.
