EVENTS

Tuesday, November 5 – Thursday, November 7

Tuesday, November 5

1. Tuesday, 7:00pm, Hayward City Council Meeting

Hayward City Hall
777 B Street (nr. Hayward BART)
Hayward

update in regards to the Referral we requested back in June to have the city of Hayward do an independent investigation on all officer involved shootings that end in a fatality. The referral was on the basis that Augie’s case would be the first case if passed. It has been 5 months since this referral and yesterday the City Manager, City Attorney, new Police Chief, Mayor along with myself, our cousin Megan, Auntie Karla and our attorney sat down with them to discuss.

This coming Tuesday November 5th at 7pm This referral will be back on the agenda for the council to discuss. From the Information given to us, it looks like they will be suggesting that such cases will go straight to the attorney generals office for a separate investigation for not only criminal charges potentially, but for other disciplinary action, policy changes, training and more. They have suggested 3 different techniques but this is the one they have suggested.

please come out Tuesday and speak with us to the council to get them to approve this new policy. We are hoping this will help minimize the amount of OIS’s and help other families.

Justice For Augie!

2. Wednesday, 11:00am – 1:00pm, Tax the Rich San Francisco Press Conference

SF City Hall Steps
1 Dr. Carleton Goodlett Pl.
SF

RSVP here: https://taxmarch.org/events/#event1513

Ignoring overwhelming opposition from the American people, Congress passed the GOP Tax Scam — giving massive tax breaks to millionaires and wealthy corporations at the expense of middle-class families. This was another injustice in a long line of tax policies that rigged our system to ensure the rich get RICHER while working families are left behind.

San Francisco is where wealth disparity gaps are harrowing in one of the wealthiest cities in the country.

Hosts: Tax March, San Francisco Living Wage, Indivisible East Bay

3. Wednesday, 4:30pm – 5:00pm, Support la Directora Claudia! Support BVHM! – Rally

24th & Mission Sts.
SF

On Wednesday, October 30th, the BVHM school staff was informed by two representatives from the district office of SFUSD that our principal, Claudia DeLarios Morán has been removed indefinitely from her position. The staff was given no information as to why this is happening nor when she will return. We have no timeline or contact person for resolution of this issue.

We believe Ms. DeLarios Morán’s absence will cause direct harm to our community and students. Our community needs a leader at BVHM every day who can respond to student needs, support the staff, and keep systems running smoothly. BVHM staff is requesting that the parent and greater community support us by attending this rally and showing the strength behind Principal Claudia’s leadership.

9. Thursday, 6:00pm – 9:00pm, 12th Annual Edward Said Mural Celebration

San Francisco State University
Jack Adams Hall
1650 Holloway Terrance Level
SF

Please join the General Union of Palestine Students in celebration of 12th Anniversary of the Edward Said Mural:

This is a free event. There will be food, live music, dabke, and panel discussion on the creation of the Edward Said Mural and the Right of Return.

The Edward Said Mural was made to honor Edward Said, a Palestinian professor and author who contributed monumentally to the study of Orientalism. The mural celebrates not just Edward Said but embodies Palestinian culture and history. That which we honor, have been passed on by our ancestors, and continue to teach. We celebrate the mural every year to honor the struggle of past GUPS members, to honor our community in San Francisco and the Bay Area, our resilient people back home, and all those who struggle for liberation from Palestine to Turtle Island.

This year’s theme is “We Will Return”. We chose this theme because the right of return is at the heart of the Palestinian struggle. Whether it’s in Gaza, or the West Bank, or in the diaspora we struggle for our return back to our homes. We hope to highlight why the right of the return is a cornerstone of the Palestinian struggle and connect it to the Great March of Return, the erasure of Handala and the key from the Edward Said mural, to ethnic cleansing and displacement.

Hosts: General Union of Palestinian Students & AMED Studies at SFSU

AARON GLANTZ
Homewreckers! How a Gang of Wall Street Kingpins, Hedge Fund Magnates, Crooked Banks, & Vulture Capitalists Suckered Millions Out of Their Homes & Demolished the American Dream


So many of us are living outdoors now. Thousands of our homes were stolen. How did this happen? Aaron Glantz knows. A former KPFA reporter who’s won a Peabody Award, been a Pulitzer Prize finalist, and written The War Comes Home.

Aaron exposes the high class rip-offs – among them, D.Trump and cronies, who often used taxpayer money to make fortunes off the working class and the middle class. Homewreckers! shows us the mad greed that harmed or ruined millions of us while further fattening the gluttonous few.
