Wednesday, January 24 

8. Wednesday, 10:00am, Fight the Hike: Rally against Tuition Increase

Sproul Plaza

tuition is about to go up by hundreds of dollars again?! On Wednesday the unelected and unaccountable UC Regents are going to raise tuition despite increased state funding. As students, we say HELL NO! Come out to Sproul Plaza to show that students refuse to allow unnecessary and unfair tuition hikes!

Governor Jerry Brown and his fellow neoliberal democrats in the Legislature refuse to provide enough funding to make UC free. But the numbers show that’s NO EXCUSE for a tuition hike. The Governor’s proposed budget actually INCREASES UC and CSU funding by 3%, but the Regents are still demanding a tuition hike from students while they give exorbitant raises to top administrators and giving unequal subsidies to hate groups like the Berkeley College Republicans and their shell of a newsletter. 

Hosts: cosponsored by the UC Berkeley Progressive Student Association (Bernie Sanders‘ Our Revolutiontion), CalSERVE – Cal Students for Equal Rights and a Valid Education Campus Mobilizers, UC Student-Workers Union – UAW Local 2865Berkeley Citizens Action (BCA)Our Revolution – East BayCYD Progressive Caucus, and Jovanka Beckles for Assembly.

11. Wednesday, 3:30pm – 5:30pm, Noise Demo Against Racial Terror (DATE CHANGED) 

Whole Foods Market (Oakland)
230 Bay Place

Whole Foods has been attacking folks of color within the past two years—going as far as attacking and racially profiling two black men, and a young, black teenager in recent reports. Their gentrifying organization must be held accountable for the threat they have posed to our community and it’s time that we make some noise to show resistance and intolerance to racial terror on any and all fronts.

Join us, next Wednesday (1/24) from 3:30-5:30 PM as we hold a noise demo in front of the store to demonstrate our intolerance for racism in our communities. Please bring any safe objects you have to make noise, signs, and bright spirits as we show up for the folks who were affected and targeted by this racist institution. It is imperative that we address racism on all fronts in our communities—especially in recent light of honoring King’s legacy and the path he has helped to pave with his work.

Colonial Shock Doctrine & the Fight for Health Justice in Post-Maria Puerto Rico.

The ongoing catastrophe following Hurricane Maria’s landfall on Puerto Rico in September has provided a stark reminder that disasters are never merely natural. As with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, historical inequalities have played a clear role in shaping the government’s response. The enduring colonial relationship between the United States and Puerto Rico and the market-driven nature of governmental relief efforts are both critical to understanding the current crisis. Please join the California Nurses Association (CNA)/National Nurses United (NNU) and the Berkeley Center for Social Medicine (BCSM) for a timely and urgent panel discussion with the following speakers to analyze these forces.

• Vincanne Adams is a Professor in the Joint UCSF/UC Berkeley Program in Medical Anthropology and the author of “Markets of Sorrow, Labors of Faith: New Orleans in the Wake of Katrina.”

• Cathy Kennedy is a Registered Nurse, Vice President of NNU and Secretary of CNA who led nurse teams in providing relief work in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria.

• Javier Arbona is Assistant Professor of American Studies and Design at UC Davis. He has published numerous articles about Puerto Rico, most recently “How not to discuss Puerto Rico.”

This event is part of a series entitled Social Medicine for Our Times: A Series of Public Talks on Health & Social Justice being organized by CNA/NNU and BCSM.

19. Thursday, 4:00pm – 6:00pm, Stop the ICE raids! It’s up to us 

630 Sansome

This past week ICE has raided 7-11 stores across the country and arrested immigrant rights leaders. Now they are preparing for a major sweep in the Bay Area to deport more than “1,500 undocumented people,” and “conduct at-large arrests in local neighborhoods and at work sites.” Thousands of human beings torn from their lives and loved ones! And the Department of (in)Justice is even considering arresting and prosecuting mayors and other public officials responsible for Sanctuary policies. THIS MUST BE STOPPED! When you attack immigrants, you are attacking us all!

An open white supremacist regime in power demonizing and persecuting “undesirables,” targeting political opponents, stripping away democratic rights… this is the logic of fascism. History has taught us that this is a road that leads to horrors. Silence and inaction = complicity.

In the coming days and weeks we will carry out political, non-violent actions to prevent these attacks on our immigrant brothers and sisters as we call upon the entire country to stand with us in resistance.

A New Way to Stop Police Brutality


The Episcopal Church of St. John the Evangelist

1661 15th Street


(nr. 16th Street BART) 

For too long, the San Francisco Police Officers Association (the police union) has taken hardline stances and used inflammatory tactics that destroy trust between residents and police. It has blocked or delayed common-sense reforms—like the city’s improved use-of-force policy—and has publicly attacked police accountability champions—including elected officials, prominent athletes like Colin Kaepernick, and its own police members. Unlike other unions focused on wages and benefits and reasonable working conditions for their employees, the SFPOA has used labor law to exert an enormous influence on public policy and public safety.

Right now, the SFPOA is negotiating a new labor agreement with the city. The city must not approve a new contract increasing police officer pay and benefits unless the SFPOA agrees to respect our values and increase public safety. The SFPOA shouldn’t be allowed to use its bargaining power to make San Francisco less safe.

We are a growing and diverse coalition of San Franciscans who care deeply about police accountability and community safety. We want to ensure the present negotiations of the SFPOA’s new labor contract reflects our values and our community’s need for safety. To influence these negotiations, we must act now before the contract is finalized by June 2018.
