1. Monday, 8:00am – 9:30am, Protest Suzy Loftus’s first day as interim SF District Attorney! (New)

Hall of Injustice
850 Bryant St.

Stand with ‘Mothers on the March Against Police Murders’ in protest of Suzy Loftus! Monday will be Suzy’s first day as interim SF District Attorney.

On October 4th, Suzy was appointed by SF Mayor Breed as SF interm District Attorney, after George Gascon resigned the position effective on October 18th.

Suzy is one of four candidates running for San Francisco District Attorney in the November election. This action by Mayor Breed is undemocratic and also raises issues of Loftus’s integrity.

While she was president of the SF Police Commission, Suzy Loftus,  turned a blind eye to racist murders by SFPD. To name a few victims, Mario Woods, Jessica Nelson-Williams, Alex Nieto, Luis Gongora Pat, Amilcar Perez-Lopez. To this day none of the cops have been charged with murder.

When SFPD was exposed for sharing racist, sexist, and homophobic texts, Loftus once again did nothing to hold SFPD accountable.

All are welcomed to stand up for JUSTICE in San Francisco!

2. Monday, 1:45pm – 5:15pm, Rally: Housing for SF Workers! (New)

After the rally: Land Use Committee meeting – please come to give public comment in support of the legislation! City Hall, Room 250 (the hearing starts at 1:30pm, but this item is further down the agenda)

The proposed law would increase fees on office developments to pay for more affordable housing in the city and help fix the imbalance between housing affordability and the jobs and wage levels created in our current development boom.

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

16th & Valencia St. (outside)

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 supports 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

Support the BDS movement!

All are welcome to join us, Stop the Displacement of Black and Brown People from the Mission, help us denounce Zionism and help raise awareness of the GENOCIDE of the Palestinian People by the state of Israel.

8. Tuesday, 7:00pm – 8:30pm, The Lie of Global Prosperity: How Neoliberals Distort Data to Mask Poverty and Exploitation

The Green Arcade
1689 Market St.


Seth Donnelly’s new book The Lie of Global Prosperity: How Neolilberals Distort Data to Mask Poverty and Exploitation deconstructs the assumption that global poverty has fallen dramatically, and lays bare the spurious methods of poverty measurement and data on which the dominant prosperity narrative depends. Donnelly analyzes just how global poverty, rather than being reduced, is reproduced by the imperatives of capital accumulation on a global scale.

Seth Donnelly is a public school teacher and long-time radical activist. He will be speaking about The Lie of Global Prosperity and discussing the current situation in Haiti (a primary focus of his book) with Pierre Labossiere of the Bay Area-based Haiti Action.

Earlier this year, Hong Kong’s people rose in mass resistance to the proposed China Extradition Bill. Protests continue to escalate despite increasingly brutal crackdowns by the government. While the city edges toward martial law, the protests have gained attention and support around the world. Join CPE, CPA, and Bauhinia Project for a discussion featuring organizers involved in the uprisings and Bay Area-based organizers. The speakers will discuss what caused and continues to fuel the uprisings, as well as what the future of this organizing may be from Hong Kong to the Bay.

All are invited to join us (Even if it’s for a few minutes) to demand that interim District Attorney Suzy Loftus charge police officers with murder. Stand with ALL families who have lost loved ones to police murders. This is a movement towards police accountability. If we keep accepting the way things are, we’ll, never make any true progress that benefits the people. Since Gascon has been the DA in San Francisco, he has not charged any police officers.

The above named  all were killed by SFPD during DA Gascon’s reign – NOT ONE police officer has been charged! Demand that Suzy Loftus charge police officers that have committed murder! Some of those named were killed while Suzy was president of the SF Police Commission!

Host: Mother’s on the March Against Police Murders!

16. Saturday, 1:00pm – 3:00pm Trump/Pence OUT NOW! – Rally & March

Meet at:

24th & Mission

3:30 PM – Closing Rally, Castro & Market

Bay Area Protests Start October 26, Continue Every Saturday Until the Fascist Trump/Pence Regime is Driven OUT

We must seize on the impeachment crisis now erupting, taking history into our own hands and turning dread for the future into a force for hope!

This is a moment when we – people of many different views and experience – must act together in mass, sustained, non-violent nationwide protests that continue until the Trump/Pence regime is removed from power. We begin with protests in NYC and LA on October 19 that announce four more consecutive Saturdays of protests in cities and towns across the country that gather more people and momentum so that in the weeks and months that follow, the movement grows.

For 3 years the Democratic Party leadership facilitated the Trump/Pence regime, even voting funds for border security when children were being separated from parents. Now, they want to restrict impeachment only to national security and
Trump’s violation of democratic norms to try to enlist the Ukraine to undermine U.S. elections. They have said they will not impeach on the whole array of fascist outrages. Thus far, they are not going after the whole fascist regime. Their approach would legitimate the whole Trump/Pence fascist program, leaving the cancer in place to grow more dangerously

In the Name of Humanity, We Refuse to Accept a Fascist America. Join Us

17. Saturday, 5:30pm – 8:30pm, Block the Boat 5 Year Anniversary Celebration!

Eric Quezada Center for Culture and Politics
518 Valencia St.

Five years ago, the Bay Area achieved one of the most successful BDS victories against apartheid Israel in US history! In 2014 we stopped the Israeli-owned ZIM shipping line from docking at the Port of Oakland for 3 consecutive months, and it hasn’t returned since!

Join us to celebrate the historic and decisive Block the Boat victory as a major contribution to all movements for social and economic justice!

Block the Boat was part of a sustained organizing effort to protest Israel’s ongoing occupation, war on Gaza, and settler-violence against Palestinians. The campaign was organized by Block the Boat (BTB), an AROC-led coalition made up of a diverse range of Bay Area community organizations and activists working in close partnership with members of ILWU Local 10, the union which represents dock workers at the Port of Oakland. The coalition built on the worldwide Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement to isolate Israel politically, culturally, and economically.

Music, food, drinks and speakers from the Block the Boat coalition.

$5-$30 (no one turned away for lack of funds)

Join us for a night of poetry and grooves to support the final stages of painting for a new monumental mural, the largest mural to be painted along the 24th Street corridor in over 10 years.

The mural honors Amilcar Perez Lopez, shot and killed by SF police on February 26th, 2015. Despite the failure of our legal system to hold the officers accountable, the Justice4Amilcar Coalition asked for a mural to honor this young Guatemalan immigrant, his grieving family in Guatemala, and our community that refuses to forget him. The mural also honors the lives of others lost due to police violence and impunity and the crisis at the border.

21. Monday, 7:00pm – 8:30pm, Reclaiming Judaism From Zionism With Several Contributors

The Green Arcade
1680 Market St.

In this powerful collection of personal narratives, forty Jews of diverse backgrounds tell a wide range of stories about the roads they have traveled from a Zionist world view to activism in solidarity with Palestinians and Israelis striving to build an inclusive society founded on justice, equality, and peaceful coexistence.

Reclaiming Judaism from Zionism will be controversial. Its contributors welcome the long overdue public debate. They want to demolish stereotypes of dissenting Jews as ‘self-hating,’ traitorous, and anti-Semitic. They want to introduce readers to the large and growing community of Jewish activists who have created organizations such as Jewish Voice for Peace, If Not Now, and Open Hillel. They want to strengthen alliances with progressives of all faiths. Above all, they want to nurture models of Jewish identity that replace ethnic exclusiveness with solidarity, Zionism with a Judaism once again nourished by a transcendent ethical vision.

Linda Hess is senior lecturer emerita in the Department of Religious Studies at Stanford University

Sydney Levy, a queer Latinx, is a co-coordinator of the caucus of Jews of Color, Sephardic and Mizrahi Jews in solidarity with Palestine, and a steering committee member of both the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights and the Global Jewish Network in Solidarity with Palestine.

Hilton Obenzinger is a recipient of the American Book Award. His books include This Passover and the Next I Will Never Be in Jerusalem (1980), American Palestine: Melville, Twain, and the Holy Land Mania (1999), and Treyf Pesach (2017). He is currently Associate Director of the Chinese Railroad Workers in North America Project at Stanford University.

Henri Picciotto served on the JVP Board of Directors from 2002 to 2009 and chaired it for much of that period. He has authored or co-authored many books and articles on math education.

Cecilie Surasky has worked as a professional communicator in a variety of social justice movements, and her film work and political analysis has been featured in film festivals and news outlets all over the world.

Jordan Wilson-Dalzell is a queer poet writing about intersections of disability, feminism, Judaism, survivorhood and social justice; her next poetry book, Baptism by Flame, will be about finding a home in Judaism that reflects her values.

1st & Mission Streets


The 2019 Stolen Land/Hoarded Resources Decolonization & Community Reparations Tourtour will go through SF tech – one of the largest industries fueling the violent gentriFUKation /removal and displacement of working class/ very low-income Black, Brown, Indigenous communities out of the whole Bay Area , which often leads to the death and dismantlement of elders and families in SF, Berkeley, Oakland /San Jose/Bay Area- as well as silently complicit in the criminalization , removal, theft and death of unhoused residents of San Francisco…

On this Tour ,which is in honor of the ancestors of these removal efforts like Luis Demetrio Gongora Pat, Papa Bear, Amilcar Perez Lopez and Jessica Williams to name a few.. POOR Magazine poverty/indigenous/disability skolaz will be sharing the medicine of #RadicalRedistribution and the #BankofComeUnityReparations‘ – “Tech Reparations Fund” a liberation fund which was formerly launched on Sept 7th 2019 and humbly asks that the Tech industry give back 10-15% of their outrageous hoarded wealth and resources to establish/build equity of unhoused, housing insecure, indigenous/disabled/elder and families facing eviction, removal, the violence of “sweeps” and/or to help folks stay in their homes, neighborhoods and/or encampments where they face ongoing removal attempts, thefts, poltricksterism, scamlord evictions, predation and poLice terror.

Additionally, Marc Benioff – CEO of Salesforce, announced a 30 million dollar “study” of unhoused peoples when we as unhoused peoples have already been studied, examined, surveyed and swept, so one of the Tour’s asks/tour stops will be the Salesforce Transit center, site of one of the most violent removal/evictions of unhoused, neuro-divergent peoples out of a safe, warm place to sit and dwell- So this tour follows a direct ask to Marc Benioff to radically redistribute to the Tech Reparations Fund so we homeless folks can build a Homefulness #2 to provide safe, land for unhoused peoples to live- here is the open letter to Marc – which we will be distributing on this tour. We will also visit “Square” which met with POOR Magazine poverty skolaz Aunti Frances MooreMuteado Silencio Lisa Tiny Gray-Garcia and homeless & formerly homeless Youth poverty skolaz from #DeecolonizeAcademy earlier this year, promising to consider The Tech Reparations Fund and ended up doing absolutely nothing for any unhoused people.

Because this is the time when the veil is thin between us living in the present and the ancestors on the other side of the spirit journey, otherwise known as “Halloween” we invite you to join us youth and family poverty skolaz from Deecolonize Academy in “dressing” , wearing a “costume” of a “Zombie Tech GentriFUKer” – Scamlord, Devil-oper, Poltrickster, Kkkolonizer, Hipster, or other icons representing 21st century missionaries and/ or removers, ( or however you would like to dress)
