ANNOUNCEMENTS

Monday, Dec. 4 – Thursday, Dec 7

Monday December 4

1.  Monday, 11:30am – 1:00pm, Free Whistleblower Reality Winner

Oakland Federal Building
1411 Clay St.
Oakland

Leafleting & Banner at Oakland Federal Building

Join us to support jailed whistleblower Reality Leigh Winner on her 26th birthday. Reality is being held without bail for helping expose Russian hacking efforts leading up to the 2016 US election. Having been charged under the Espionage Act for sending a classified NSA document to the media, she faces 10 years in prison. Reality is the first victim of the Trump Administration’s “war on leakers.”

Reality Winner has been an outspoken critic of Trump and a staunch advocate of social justice causes, including Standing Rock, animal rights, climate science, Black Lives Matter, whistleblowers and free speech. And now the views she’s shared on social media are being used as evidence against her in a truly Orwellian trial.

Reality is charged with printing the secret document the day Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. The day after Trump told Russian officials that he fired “nut job” Comey to ease pressure from a Russiagate investigation, Reality allegedly sent the document to the media.

Host: Stand With Reality Winner

UC Berkeley Student Workers Union UAW 2865
2030 Addison St., Ste. 640A
Berkeley

Charters are proliferating throughout California and the US. They are pushed by billionaires like the Bill Gates and his foundation, The Walton Family Foundation owned by the family that owns Walmart, The KIPP Foundation owned by the Fisher family which own the GAP corporation, the A’s and runs Rocketship Schools, The California Charters School Association CCSA which Netflix owner Reed Hastings runs, Facebook owner Zuckerberg’s Foundation which is setting up charters schools in the bay area and nationally.

These billionaires helped pass California charters school laws in 1992 and Prop 39 which forces public schools to co-locate breaking up public schools and relieves them of the Field Act to protect school kids health and safety.
Now LAUSD and OUSD may go bankrupt because billions of dollars (5) are being siphoned off from the public school systems 

These same profiteers are privatizing community colleges at CCSF and Laney where John L. Fisher owner of the A’s and the Gap who also runs KIPP want to take Laney land for his ball park and corporate land development plans.

Kristyn Jones, UTR elected rep to NEA convention

Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean and Jesse H. Choper Distinguished Professor of Law, UC Berkeley School of Law, Boalt Hall; Co-Author, “Free Speech on Campus”
In Conversation with Janet Napolitano, President, University of California; Former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security; Former Governor of Arizona

This program is part of the Ethics and Accountability series, underwritten by the Charles Travers Family.

It seems hardly a week goes by without another controversy over free speech on college campuses. On one side, there are increased demands to censor hateful, disrespectful and bullying expression and to ensure an inclusive and nondiscriminatory learning environment. On the other side, traditional free speech advocates charge that recent demands for censorship coddle students and threaten free inquiry. In his new book, Free Speech on Campus, Dean Erwin Chemerinsky argues that campuses must provide supportive learning environments for an increasingly diverse student body but can never restrict the expression of ideas. Come for a spirited conversation about what constitutes free speech on campus and the implications for society at large.

10.  Tuesday, 11:30pm – 1:00pm, Action/Rally to #Repeal/CoastalHawkins! Real Rent Control NOW!

11:30am – Meet at front steps of City Hall

11:45am – Leaving for nearby location

Follow on Twitter @stopsfevictions for location updates.)

Tenants are taking action to demand an end to the evictions and rent gouging that are destroying their health, livelihoods and futures. Join them in the fight to close the loopholes in our rent-control laws that leave them unprotected or that incentivize speculators to force out long-time tenants in order to jack up prices to luxury/market rates. Our seniors, families, workers, children, disabled folks and vulnerable residents can’t wait any longer while greedy speclator landlords profit off their displacement.

*Costa Hawkins is the main state law that incentivizes landlords to harass and push out long-time tenants to spike the rents to rates most of us can’t afford.

This law legalizes a landlord’s ability to raise rents on vacant units…that is, when someone moves out, the landlord can jack up the rent, and when a master tenant moves out, subtenants are left unprotected. It also restricts rent controlled units in SF to units that were built on or before 1979 and does not allow for rent control on single family homes or condos

1 Frank H. Ogawa Plz., Hearing Room 1
Oakland

Oakland’s Public Safety Committee will debate a resolution from Desley Brooks and Rebecca Kaplan to end all Oakland Police Department cooperation with ICE, after assistance in an August 16 raid violated the city’s sanctuary policy.

On August 16, HSI/ICE conducted an AM raid on the 700th block of 27th Street in West Oakland with OPD assistance. The raid was advertised (erroneously) as a search warrant for the sexual trafficking of juveniles, biut there were no actual allegations of sexual abuse, no juveniles were removed from the home and the solitary arrest was for being undocumented.

“POLICING IS A PUBLIC HEALTH ISSUE”

Because policing fails to meet people’s needs, and puts people in danger of arrest, imprisonment, and/or even death, we must eliminate connections between policing and healthcare.

Critical Resistance Oakland and The Oakland Power Projects present: The “Know Your Options: Opiate Overdose First Response” workshop

This workshop is designed to increase people’s understanding of how policing, incarceration and gentrification drive health inequalities manifest as chronic illnesses and to empower folks who live with them to access the care they need with minimal contact with law enforcement. The workshop ends with the problem of substance use and specific training on responding to and reversing drug overdoses.

He spoke as the father of a Muslim US soldier killed in combat about what it means to dedicate your life to the promise of the#Americandream, inspiring a renewed #patriotism and pride in the hearts of many Americans.

In his memoir, An American Family: A Memoir of Hope and Sacrifice, he tells the story of his family’s pursuit of the American dream and why—especially in these tumultuous times—we must not be afraid to step forward for what we believe in when it matters most.
