URGENT ALERT for TONIGHT, Sunday, July 8, 2018
RE: ‘Occupy ICESF’ – BLOCKADE
As the work week starts tomorrow, and the new Mayor gets sworn in Wednesday; police activity tonight is a concern.
We need as many as people as possible to come stand vigil tonight between midnight and 5am (Sunday July 8th going into Monday, July 9th). If you can’t be within the blockade and behind the barricades, you can stand vigil across the street and keep watch. The more people on the ground, the better. The more active protectors, the better. The more people bearing witness, the better. 444 Washington Street. Let’s love and protect each other. #OccupyICE#SanFrancisco #SF #abolishice #BayArea #Oakland #SF

1. Monday, 10:00am – 12Noon, Salesforce: Cancel Your Contract with Border Patrol
415 Mission St.
Join The San Francisco Progressive Alliance and allied organizations and individuals for a press conference outside of 415 Mission St (Salesforce Tower), where we will formally denounce the company’s continued engagement with agencies that perpetuate human rights abuse.
We stand in support of Salesforce employees and the marginalized populations that continue to be targeted for abuse by CBP. We demand that Salesforce’s contract with CBP be canceled, and that a plan be implemented to evaluate the ethical impact of all current and future.
On June 25th, we learned that hundreds of Salesforce employees had signed an open letter calling upon CEO Marc Benioff to reevaluate the company’s ties with Customs & Border Patrol, an agency engaged in the inhumane separation of families at the border.
Two days later, Benioff rejected the employees’ demands, claiming that the software they provided to CBP was only “for recruiting efforts and correspondence with U.S citizens and lawmakers.”
Open letter states:
“We cannot cede responsibility for the use of the technology we create–particularly when we have reason to believe that it is being used to aid practices so irreconcilable to our values. Those values often feel abstract, and it is easier to uphold them when they are not being tested. They are being tested now.”

5. Tuesday, 3:30pm (about during public comment) Resolution to ABOLISH ICE
SF City Hall, Room 250
1 Dr. Carleton B. Goodlett Pl.
Please come to the BOS meeting to support this RESOLUTION during Public Comment:
ICE needs to be regulating corporations not humans.
Supervisors, as the governing body of this great city, whose duty it is to fulfill the will of the people, it is imperative that you pass the following resolution:
Resolution to Abolish ICE
Let us be perfectly clear in our intention and our determination. The city and county of San Francisco is a sanctuary city.
And, whereas the State of California is as well, a sanctuary State,
And Whereas ICE has committed the most heinous crime imaginable, by putting children in cages on cold cement floors, telling them not to touch each other, and drugging them if they don’t obey.
And whereas, the people has spoken and you too have spoken loud and clear and publicly-
Let us Declare we do not recognize their power nor do they have any jurisdiction here and we Demand they must disband immediately.
All employees of ICE who disavow themselves of the intent and purpose of ICE will be assisted in obtaining work by the trade unions.
Henceforth let it be known that ICE is now an acronym for
Illegal Corporate Exploitation.
This branch of the government will, with all powers at its disposal, track down all corporations who have crossed borders and exploited the work force and the resources of the countries they have invaded.
They will be made to pay reparations and to commit to a lifetime of public service.
Whereas we have all committed ourselves to a lifetime of pubic service we do not consider this a punishment but rather an opportunity to belong again to humanity.
Therefore let it be known that on the 10th of July 2018 all corporations violating the rights of humans and the natural world will immediately have their license to do business revoked.
