2. Thursday, 4:00pm – 8:00pm, Final Pre Strike Protest: Against the logging of Mattole Forest

2 Folsom St.

SF

Join us for the final internationally-coordinated Earthstrike protest before the general strike, on August 1st. If you live in the Bay Area and haven’t gotten involved with our Earthstrike chapter yet, come on down to learn more on how you can help out!

The Mattole Forest is one of the world’s largest contiguous redwood forests. Regardless of its environmental significance, the Fisher family, more well-known for their ownership of both GAP and Banana Republic, also have 440,000 acres of private property in the Mattole Forest, continue to profit off logging expeditions.

Despite strong opposition and protests against logging ventures in the Mattole Forest, the family still profits significantly through continued operations by the logging company.

The California State Government has done little to prevent the destruction of one of the most important environmental assets in the world. Scientists researching the impact the Mattole Forest, have even noted its massive capacity for absorbing carbon as a counterbalance to climate change for the region. Ignoring the Fisher family’s continued efforts to destroy the forest as a way to make another buck, former governor of California Jerry Brown appointed Robert Fisher, the president of the GAP brand, whos initiated much of the logging in Mattole forest, as the Vice Chair of the Sustainable Growth Council. The SGC is an organization that supposedly supports sustainable and environmental friendly models for communities. He still remains on the board of the SGC today,

The Fisher’s claim that their logging assets are examples of high levels of stewardship is completely untrue

8. Saturday, 5:00pm – 7:00pm, Dis)Location: Black Exodus Launch Party and Community Gathering

Bayview Opera House

4705 3rd St.

SF

The Anti-Eviction Mapping Project is proud and excited to announce and invite you to a launch party and community gathering to celebrate the print and online publication of (Dis)Location: Black Exodus, the culmination of several years’ work in the community. 

(Dis)location is a multi-platform publication and public workshop series centered around the issue of local housing justice. The first chapter, Black Exodus, builds upon the Anti-Eviction Mapping project’s commitment to centering communities as producers of social and historical knowledge. Activated by the unprecedented out-migration of Black San Franciscans from their historic neighborhoods, our aim with this project has been to foreground Black storytelling and art-making.

At the event we will present the print zine and interactive website, an accessible online portal combining our print and multimedia work. The zine highlights community oral histories and supplements them with maps, socio-historical context and art from local Black artists.
