Events – Part 2

Wednesday, September 11 – Sunday, September 15

September 11, Wednesday

22. Wednesday, 3:00pm – 4:00pm,  Stop Restarting of Japanese Nuke Plants & Olympics in Fukushima – Speakout

San Francisco Japanese Consulate

275 Battery St. (nr. California)

SF

Join No Nukes Action NNA at the San Francisco Japanese Consulate to protest the continued Japanese Abe government to force Japanese children and their families back to Fukushima. The government claims that Fukushima has been “decontaminated” but the three reactors still have melted nuclear rods which they have not been able to remove. In addition that is over 1 million tons of contaminated radioactive tritium water in thousands of tanks surrounding the broken nuclear plants in Fukushima. The government is pushing to release the water in the Pacific Ocean despite the opposition of fisherman associations and the public.


There are also thousands of bags in Fukushima filled with radioactive waste with no place to go and these bags are spread throughout the region

the Abe government has lied to the Olympic committee that not only is Japan safe but Fukushima should host the baseball games and special Olympics. It is spending tens of millions of dollars preparing the Azuma sports stadium to push a big lie that everything is OK.

Check Indybay for future listing.

23. Wednesday, 3:00pm – 10:00pm, Fifteenth Annual 9/11 Truth Festival – Deconstructing Myth with Truth

Grand Lake Theater

3200 Grand Ave.

Oakland

Suggested donation: $20. No one turned away.

Eighteen years after the events of Sept. 11, 2001, the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance will hold its 15th Annual 9/11 Truth Film Festival

This year’s documentaries include “9/11 War Games” and “The Secret Lie That Started the Afghan War,” both produced by James Corbett, and “9/11 Memorial Museum Officials Accept ‘Truther Art’ Into Permanent Collection” produced by John Massaria. The film festival will also premiere the “Conference on the 9/11 Pentagon Evidence: Summary,” produced by Ken Jenkins, which presents highlights of an historic conference that took place on May 4th, 2019 in Colorado. Ken Jenkins is a pioneering 9/11 activist, video producer and organizer of numerous film festivals, including this year’s festival.

Keynote speaker Mickey Huff is the director of Project Censored and president of the Media Freedom Foundation.

Featured speaker Mick Harrison, Esq., is a Public Interest Attorney, graduate summa cum laude of the University of the District of Columbia School of Law. Attorney Harrison has focused on cases involving whistleblower protection, government accountability, corporate fraud and false claims, and dangers to public health or the environment.

The theme connecting the films and speakers is that many key elements in the official story of 9/11, which has been used as a pretext for war crimes abroad and undermining the Constitution at home, cannot be true. An independent investigation is needed to uncover the truth about what actually happened on that fateful day and who were the perpetrators. 

Bonnie Faulkner, producer of the radio show, Guns and Butter, and radio personality, Peter B. Collins, producer of the Peter B. Collins Show will host the event.

The film festival will be streamed live at No Lies Radio. More details about the speakers, films and schedule can be found atThe Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance Website.

32. Sunday, 12Noon – 3:00pm, Kenneth Harding Jr Foundation – Food & Clothing Drive

3rd & Oakdale (Kenny’s Korner)

SF

on July 16, 2011, 19 year old Kenneth Wade Harding Jr. was brutally murdered by the SFPD over a $2.00 transit fare. While the community of Bayview/ Hunters Point watched this live, the rest of the world watched the horrific video on YouTube. It was evident that something needed to be done to address not only the crime against Kenny and his family but

also against the community members that witnessed this crime.

In August 2011 a group of young people from Bayview, members known as the Black Star Liner Incorporated stood up against the injustice in their community by the hands of police officers paid by the tax dollars to harass and at some times kill the civilians by reaching out to the people in Kenny’s Plaza (formally known as Mendell Plaza). That interaction came in the form of communication via political and educational literature, OCC complaints and planting the seed for a regular community feed. Over two years later we are now in our 33RD consecutive month. After a 2 year break for education, we’re coming back into the community to continue the works.

Donations are needed and welcomed! Below you will find a detailed list of the essential items that make our monthly feeds such a success!

WHAT WE NEED:
* Turkey, Chicken or Beef sandwich meat (NO PORK!!!)
* Whole wheat bread
* Condiments (mayo and mustard)
* veggies
* Fruit both fresh and canned
* Healthy snacks (crackers, chips, granola, fruit bars, fruit snacks, pastries, nuts, yogurt etc.)
* Water
* Juice
***And anything else healthy that you think would fill the bag and a belly with love!

ADDITIONALLY ASIDE FROM FOOD WE NEED:
*** Paper lunch bags
*** Plastic sandwich bags
*** Serving gloves 
*** Paper towels
*** Hand sanitizer
*****And any other suggestions that you may have would be great!

Help is needed!

Host: Danika Chatman (Mother of Kenneth Harding Jr. who was killed by SFPD)
