   The government of Ecuador has recently agreed to allow the U.S. military to base aircraft and naval ships at one of the Galapagos Islands in violation of the Constitution of Ecuador, which both forbids any foreign military installations and provides the natural environment with the right to be protected.

The United States currently has over 1,000 military bases around the world which are a source of major environmental destruction.

Tuesday, June 25

1. Tuesday, 12:30pm – 1:30pm, Boycott Manny’s – Weekly protest!

16th & Valencia St. (outside)

SF

From Black & Brown For Justice Peace and Equality / Mothers On The March Against Police Murders.

Why Are We Boycotting Manny’s?

The owner of Manny’s is occupying a place that the Latino community fought for! Residents of the Mission community have fought for many years to make sure that community organizations create venues/space that would benefit the black and brown community. We believe that this should be a cultural center for the youth of this area, especially at a time when so many are being displaced.

The owner of Manny’s also support the occupation of Palestine by a so-called Zionist state of Israel that is committing genocide of the Palestinian People. Zionist also are involved with training police in the US.

Join us, Stop the Displacement of Black and Brown People from the Mission, help us denounce Zionism and help STOP the GENOCIDE of the Palestinian People by the state of Israel.

555 Santa Clara St.

Vallejo

show up to demand justice in solidarity with the families of Mario Romero, Anton Barrett, Ronell Foster, Angel Ramos, Willie McCoy, and every other person murdered by Vallejo Police Department.There’s been a consistent pattern of needless violence and far too many pending cases against Vallejo PD, yet ZERO accountability — even for repeated offenders, like killer cops Ryan McMahon and David McLoughlin.

There have been reports of Vallejo police officers harassing family members who have spoken out. Cops shining their lights into their homes, following them down streets, pulling them over for no reason and even approaching them in nightclubs and other social settings with verbal threats to their physical safety if they don’t “back off.”

It’s gonna take ALL OF US joining in solidarity to tackle the corruption at hand.

5. Tuesday, 6:30pm – 9:30pm, Deport ICE Richmond: No City Money For Deportation

Richmond City Council

440 Civic Center Plz.

Richmond

Deport ICE folks – we need your help on June 25th in Richmond. After passing the nation’s first sanctuary contracting ordinance to make sanctuary status real by ending contracts with ICE data brokers, the City of Richmond is trying to weasel out of the law and extend their contract with Vigilant Solutions until 2022. It’s been postponed twice now, but June 25 will be the decision day.

Vigilant Solutions is in contract with ICE to provide access to billions of license plate reader scans to help immigration enforcement hunt and track undocumented people and their families, friends and associates. ACLU has documented 9,000 ICE agents with access to Vigilant’s LEARN database and 30,000 searches a month. Richmond City, while they have cut ICE off from their data, is still sending license plate scans with the real time location of city residents, workers and visitors to the Border Patrol and wants to give another $30,000 to a tech company making deportations happen. 

Please come down and help us stop it. We have somewhere between 1-3 council members who won’t vote for it. We need to get to 4. If you drive through Richmond, you’re affected.

6. Wednesday, 6:00pm – 9:00pm, Building Alternatives to Police Emergency Response

St. Columba Catholic Church

6401 San Pablo Ave.

Oakland


Agenda: 6pm Check-in & light refreshments
6:30 Presentation begins promptly
8pm Reception

For years, the Anti Police-Terror Project (and Critical Resistance) has been the leading voice demanding that Oakland be the vanguard in creating a model for mental health responders to be the first responders for mental health issues – and this was a central component of the Cat Brooks For Oakland campaign platform. The idea seems to be resonating and CouncilmemberKaplan ForOakland has called for a meeting to review a model that exists in Eugene, Oregon. 

We firmly believe that Oakland is a unique city and we need a unique model. And In fact, we are already in the process of working with mental health experts and security professionals to create one, but we are encouraging all of you to attend this meeting and express your support for further investigation into the creation of a model that works for Oakland.

The meeting features a presentation from CAHOOTS, a mobile crisis intervention team integrated into the public safety system in Eugene and Springfield, Oregon.

Sponsors: APTP and 5 Other groups

Drake’s Dealership

If you can’t make it, visit here https://www.keep-families-together.org/ to tailor and submit a comment by July 9!

BACKGROUND INFO
As part of this administration’s racist, xenophobic rhetoric and policy proposals, on May 10, 2019, HUD published a proposed rule that would prohibit “mixed-status” immigrant families from living in public and other subsidized housing. Mixed-status families contain both members who are eligible and ineligible for housing assistance based on their immigration status. As a result of this proposal, 25,000 families, including 55,000 children, will be forced to either separate or face eviction and an increased risk of homelessness

Hall of Injustice

850 Bryant St.

SF

DEMAND POLICE ACCOUNTABILITY

All are invited to join us  to demand that District Attorney George Gascon charge police officers with murder. Stand with ALL families who have lost loved ones to police murders. Since Gascon has been the DA in San Francisco, he has not charged any police officers.

Calling for Justice for:

Joshua Smith, Kenneth Harding Jr., Peter Yin Woo, Steven Michael Young, Dennis Hughes , Pralith Prolouring, Dale Stuart Wilkerson, Alex Nieto, Giovany Contreras Sandoval, O’Shaine Evans, Matthew Hoffman, Amilcar Perez-Lopez, Alice Brown, Herbert Omar Benitez, Javier Lopez Garcia, Mario Woods, Luis Gόngora Pat, Jessica Nelson, Nicolas McWherter, Nicholas Flusche, Damian Murray, Keita O’Neil, Jesus Adolfo Delgado, Jehad Eid, and Derrick Gaines (killed by a police officer hired by SFPD)

The above named  all were killed by SFPD during DA Gascon’s reign – NOT ONE police officer has been charged! 

11. Friday, 7:00pm – 8:30pm, 5G Free Forum: Wireless “small” cells harm all cells!

Sports Basement – ground floor

2727 Milvia St.

South Berkeley

Power point presentation and panel discussion featuring health educator Sarah Aminoff, scientist Lloyd Morgan, and former attorney Kelley Hart, followed by audience discussion. 

Come learn why there is a movement to ban 5th Generation close proximity “small” cell wireless antennas near schools and residences. Oppose 5G to protect our local bird, pollinator, wildlife, and human populations. Stopping 5G wireless will not prevent the availability of wireless services, but will: 

• Protect privacy and security, 

• Reduce unsightly and hazardous industrial clutter in our neighborhoods, 

• Prevent 5G’s exorbitant energy use, 

• Minimize harmful health and environmental impacts from radiation, 

• Make cities more resilient when disaster strikes by preserving our reliable communication network, and 

• Defend local sovereignty and the public interest from Big Telecom greed. Do not fall for industry hype! 

Over twenty California cities have passed measures to restrict the 5G rollout. If Big Telecom plans proceed, 5G will adversely affect privacy, safety, property values, weather prediction, etc. There are far superior alternatives, cable and fiber optic, which are more reliable, more secure, faster, and more affordable.

Endorsed by Wireless Radiation Education & Defense (WiRED), Berkeley Citizens Action (BCA), Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists Social Justice Committee.
