Friday, 9:30am – 11:30am, Prosecution Not Promotion – Protest OPD Promotions Ceremony

Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Ascension
4700 Lincoln Ave.
Oakland, 94602

‘Feminist’ Police Chief and Mayor promote ‘Good Old Boys’ Club

JOIN US IN PICKETING THIS OUTRAGEOUS OPD PROMOTIONS CEREMONY, where Chief Kirkpatrick is promoting three of the criminal cops responsible for covering up the child rape actions of OPD (and other jurisdictions) police officers. 

Chief Kirkpatrick has approved major promotions for the very officers who failed to properly investigate the rape scandal, notify the federal monitor, DA and Mayor, and even encouraged “Celeste Guap’ to destroy evidence in the case. Schaaf closed her investigation before findings were even issued. 

According to a brief filed by Jim Chanin and John Burris, who originally filed the class-action which led to the NSA, “There is no evidence that any of the officers engaging in this behavior, or any of the supervisors who observed it and apparently failed to report it, stop it, or discipline their subordinates, were ever investigated, and if appropriate, disciplined by the Oakland Police Department.”

APTP has no faith in the Mayor’s or Chief Kirkpatrick’s ability to get a handle on the blatant culture of sexual abuse and general disregard for the rights of the Black community, people of color, LGBTQIA, undocumented, disabled and unhoused people of Oakland.

Saturday, 2:00pm – 5:00pm. The Trump/Pence Regime Must GO!

Meet at:

Civic Center Plaza Station
San Francisco

2:00pm – Rally then March to 24th & Mission

In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America!

The Trump/Pence Regime daily escalates its fascist attacks on immigrants and Muslims, on healthcare and the poor, on Black and Brown people, on women and LGBTQ folks, on the media, on the environment, on the right to protest, on the truth.

Immigrants are full human beings, not “illegals” or criminals, to be demonized, terrorized, hunted down, locked up and thrown out.

Muslims and refugees are full human beings, not people to be shunned, banned, and cast out to be swallowed up by oceans and wars.

Women and LGBTQ people are full human beings, not objects to be grabbed, demeaned, victimized and denied their fundamental right to control their reproduction, and how they choose to live.

Black and Latino people are full human beings, not people to be denied the right even to live, gunned down by the police with impunity, incarcerated in genocidal numbers, and denied basic rights

The people of every country are full human beings, and not collateral damage to be subjected to massive bombing, invasions, occupations, the danger of nuclear war, and a program of “America First” that would bludgeon them into submission.

We must say NO! Not just for ourselves, but in the name of humanity. Never underestimate the power of the people rising up together with right on our side.

New Valencia Hall
474 Polk St. (at Ellis St.)

12:15pm – Home-cooked brunch served ($8-$10 donation)

The intermingling of all forms of discrimination that people experience—based on race, gender, sexual orientation and more—is an inclusive approach.  When coupled with an analysis of class it can be an effective basis for uniting social justice struggles. Yet some prefer single-issue organizing, or that which omits class. Why? Add your views on this crucial discussion for today’s emerging resistance.

Sunday, 2:00pm – 5:00pm, Town Hall: The Current State of Surveillance

SEIU Local 87
240 Golden Gate Ave.

How are National Security Tools being Used for Deportation?  Since the election, Donald Trump began his campaign to deport millions of undocumented immigrants. He used racist rhetoric to target our communities. Over the course of his Presidency, there has been a sharp increase in immigration arrests.

In March, ICE agents and the FBI used a stingray, an extremely invasive breach of privacy, to track Rudy Carmaco-Carranza, a 23 year old immigrant from El Salvador. A stingray, also known as a cell-site simulator tricks nearby phones into providing location data and can interrupt cell service. 

Learn more about how national security tools like Stingrays, created post 9/11 in response to to the War on Terror, are being used to target immigrant communities here. 

The event will include a Know Your Rights Presentation by:
Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Asian Law Caucus, Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), CAIR – San Francisco Bay Area
followed by a Resource Fair with the opportunity to speak to attorneys.

Monday, 6:00pm – 9:00pm, OccupyForum: Occupation as a Tactic: Lakeview Elementary School & Occupy Oakland with Gerald Smith

Black and Brown Social Club
474 Valencia St. (btw. 15th & 16th Streets)

Come hear a participant, Gerald Smith, talk about his experiences building and struggling within Occupy Oakland. Special attention will be given to the occupation of Lakeview Elementary School, which was inspired by Occupy Oakland.

As an act of protest, occupation is a strategy often used by social movements and other forms of collective social action in order to take and hold public and symbolic spaces, buildings, critical infrastructure such as entrances to train stations, shopping centers, university buildings, squares, and parks. Opposed to a military occupation, which attempts to subdue a conquered country, a protest occupation is a means to resist the status quo and advocate a change in public policy. Occupation uses space as an instrument to achieve political and economic change, and to construct counter-spaces in which protesters participate in the production and re-imagination of urban space.

Gerald Smith has a long history in the Black Liberation and Workers’ movements.  He is currently involved with the Labor Action Committee to Free Mumia, Liberated Lens, and the Oscar Grant Committee Against Police Brutality.
