Food Not Bombs will prepare a vegetarian lunch and we will provide a manual wheelchair for use by people with disabilities.

Amber Cummings, a known fascist organizer is planning a rally, “No to Marxism in America” in Berkeley, CA It is critical that the people of the greater Bay Area show up to resist their hateful actions and rhetoric. The ideology and presence of fascist forces are on the rise not only in the United States but around the globe.

Domestically, the U.S. government is carrying out the imprisonment of tens of thousands of Latin American migrants and refugees at the southern border who are escaping war and terror in their countries created by the imperialist policies of the United States. In the Bay Area alone there are over 55,000 homeless people living on the streets. We will mobilize against the fascists and we will not forget the daily oppression of working people.

Meet outside at:

BART – Lake Merritt

Oakland

Join us in offering hot food, drinks, snacks, and solidarity to releasees and visitors at Santa Rita Jail!

Let us know you’ll be there sending us a text at (510) 686-3284.

Prisons function to repress, warehouse and extract labor from primarily those of us who are Black or poor. We believe that solidarity is a weapon of resistance, and that we must respond to the basic needs of our community while also confronting state terror.

In honor of Dujuan Armstrong Jr. who entered Santa Rita Jail for a weekend sentence and never came home, we’re providing material support and direct care to folks at Santa Rita Jail as a small but meaningful way to address the harm caused by incarceration in our community. We do not positively engage with the racist pigs who work at the jail, as they are willing agents of the state that criminalizes and incarcerates us.

Monday, September 2

11. Monday, 9:00am – 12Noon, SEIU UHW Labor Day Action/Rally

Mosswood Park

3612 Webster

Oakland

“Corporate Healthcare is Making America Sick”

Following the 30-minute rally, workers will march to the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, 3600 Broadway in Oakland, where dozens of them are expected to engage in civil disobedience by blocking an intersection near the facility.

Kaiser Permanente is a “non-profit” healthcare corporation that has abandoned its mission to serve communities in favor of earning massive profits and enriching top executives. While those executives and the corporation’s bank account thrive, Kaiser is raising prices for patients, undermining quality healthcare, refusing to bargain in good faith, and attacking the frontline healthcare workers who have made it successful. Now Kaiser is just like any other for-profit corporate provider and part of the problem with healthcare in America. 

“We reject what Kaiser has become. Our fight is for quality healthcare and the good, middle-class jobs America needs. It’s time for Kaiser to get back on track and join us.”

12. Monday, 9:00am – 2:00pm, Oakland: Labor Day Rally for Healthcare Justice at Kaiser

3612 Webster

Oakland

Thousands of SEIU-UHW members across the state are publicly rejecting Kaiser’s greed and hypocrisy this Labor Day — protesting against Kaiser’s unfair labor practices and demanding a new contract that protects our futures, families, and patients.

Kaiser is making record profits and gave the CEO a 60% raise to $16 million a year. But when it comes to us, the healthcare workers who help patients thrive, Kaiser is bargaining in bad faith and demanding unprecedented cuts in our next contract.

Hosts: seiu-uhw + 2 Other groups

Tuesday, September 3

14. 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 and in other countries – like the Philippines

All are welcome to 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.
