ONE JOB SHOULD BE ENOUGH!
Marriott Hotel Strike – Workers have been walking the picket lines in this bad air quality. Please support them!
San Francisco Hotels ON STRIKE
From Local 2 :
Local 2 is striking at the 7 Marriott properties in San Francisco:
-Marriott Marquis at Mission and 4th
-Marriott Union Square at 480 Sutter St.
-Courtyard Marriott Downtown at 299 2nd St.
-St. Francis at Powell & Geary
-Palace at Market & New Montgomery
-St. Regis at 125 3rd St.
-W at 181 3rd St.
This is an open-ended strike, so we’ll be out until we win! Except for the Courtyard Downtown, all picket lines are 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There is a Courtyard picket everyday, but just no overnight shift (10p-5a).
PLEASE JOIN THEM! The workers love to know that our labor and community allies have their back, and it lifts their spirits to see people besides their co-workers walk the line. We know that we never win alone!
It may go without saying, but the way Local 2 wins strikes is with loud, militant, non-stop, disciplined picket lines. We don’t get into physical fights with scabs or others crossing the line, as tempting as that may be, because it doesn’t help us win (and in fact can lead to picket lines being shut down). All shifts should have picket captains, most of whom are rank-and-file leaders from the hotel they’re picketing.

You’re invited to a limited theatrical screening of Say Her Name: The Life & Death of Sandra Bland. On July 10, 2015, Sandra Bland, a politically active 28-year-old African-American woman, was arrested for a traffic violation in a small Texas town. Three days later, Sandra was found hanging from a noose in a jail cell in Waller County, Texas. Described by The Hollywood Reporter as “heartbreaking..one of the most galvanizing episodes of this generation’s civil rights struggle…poignantly explored”, Say Her Name follows her family and their legal team as they try to make sense of what happened, presenting a compelling look at her life as well as her death. It’s both a vigorous, engrossing mystery and a disturbing account of systemic racism and neglect.

Meet at corner of Taylor & O’Farrell St.
The Hilton Hotel – Union Square
Insurance companies are supposed to protect us from catastrophic risks. Yet when it comes to the largest threat to humanity – climate change – U.S. insurance companies are actually doing the exact opposite. Through their massive investments in fossil fuel companies & insuring of drilling and mining projects the U,S. insurance industry is making the problem worse. This has to stop. Hundreds of lobbyists for the US insurance industry are coming to downtown San Francisco for a convention. Join us at lunch time to send them a message:
Insure Our Future: Stop Insuring Climate Change!
Hosts: Unfriend Fossil Fuels, Consumer Watchdog, Rainforest Action Network

***But the 3140 16th St large auto body garage across from the Roxie that wants to convert into a 3-story entertainment space including a rooftop bar is still on and must be stopped!
This area is already overcrowded with a imbalance of food and drink spaces (55%!) and we need to keep our blue-collar spaces. A Subaru dealer, in fact, wants to run a repair shop at this space and is happy to work with us to get our Mission folks into these good-paying jobs.
