Online talk with author of “BADGES WITHOUT BORDERS: How Global Counterinsurgency Transformed American Policing.”

Join us for a provocative exchange between author Stuart Schrader and Carl Dix from Revolution Books. Schrader’s important book could not be more timely… against the backdrop of resistance to Trump’s deployment of Gestapo-like federal police forces to Portland to suppress the just uprising against white supremacy.

From the Cold War through today, the U.S. has quietly assisted dozens of regimes around the world in suppressing civil unrest and securing the conditions for the smooth operation of capitalism. Casting a new light on American empire, Badges Without Borders shows, for the first time, that the very same people charged with global counterinsurgency also militarized American policing at home.

“Schrader’s superb and finely written book shows beyond any doubt that US law enforcement deliberately policed its own citizens like the military did Cold War ‘enemies’ elsewhere… Everything from riot control to stop and frisk policing and the use of military-grade weapons in U.S. cities have their roots in national security policy. In this excellent work of history, the archives finally reveal just how right Baldwin was to call Harlem ‘occupied territory.'”
— Khalil Gibran Muhammad

3. Tuesday, 6:00pm – 8:00pm, Community Meeting on Police Brutality and the George Floyd Protests Pt. 5

Willow Park

Willow & 14th St.

Oakland

 In the past 2 months, cities in the U.S. and around the world have risen up in rebellion against white supremacist terror from the police following the despicable murder of George Floyd. Millions have taken to the streets despite strict shelter-in-place orders and they have been met with a violent response by the police. We have seen protesters beaten, tear gassed, tased, and even murdered as the state struggles to suppress this mass movement. But it is important to note that the protests are not solely a response to the murder of George Floyd. They represent a revolt against the general systematic slaughter of black people by police and against the white supremacist-capitalist state as a whole. 

The problem is that we have been here before. In the past, mass protests against police terror and the white supremacist-capitalist state have occurred, but after initial outrage and police crack downs, the excitement and activity of the protests subsides. 

We cannot afford to tail spontaneous movement after spontaneous movement. We need to organize for the long-term, which means doing much more than showing up to protests every time a black person is murdered by police or voting every two years

Reforms intended to quell police brutality are often not applied, ineffective, insufficient, or completely rolled back. If a long-term organized movement against white supremacist police terror is not sustained, then we will continue to see black people murdered  by the police.

Femme identifying folx continue to face outrageous gender injustice to this day—women make up only 23.2% of the United States Congress, on average, Black women in the U.S. are paid 39% less than white men and 21% less than white women, the crisis of murdered and missing Indigenous women continues to plague our society, sexual harassment and assault permeate our schools & communities, the LGBTQ+GNC community still faces discrimination from employment to housing and everything in between—the list goes on.

Throughout the day, there will be opportunities to connect through community-building events, learn by listening to and interacting with an array of speakers on various issues, and act by becoming civically engaged. Sessions will include how to start a movement, organizing tactics for justice reform, and career development tips.

With states reopening around the country despite record levels of Covid-19 cases and a growing death toll as well as a national debate about whether public schools are safe to resume in-person classes this fall, it is clear that government officials don’t care about the human cost of this pandemic. Health care workers on the front lines of the crisis have been in the trenches, seen the devastation first hand and continue to organize against the inactions and callousness of the policy-makers.

Hear from front line nurses and health care workers about their battles in the hospitals and the nursing homes against Covid-19 and why the fight against this pandemic is intricately linked to the struggle for Black lives and for dignity and respect in the workplace.

75th Anniversary of the U.S. Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima

10. Thursday, 8:00am – 9:30am(PT),  75th Anniversary of U.S. Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima

Participate virtually:

Livermore rally: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_8qpE8RPJo    

  Link will go live before 8:00am

The Livermore rally program will kick off two days of nationally broadcast, virtual programming on this historic 75th anniversary of the atomic bombing.

Rally speakers include historian Gar Alperovitz, Pentagon planner and whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, and Nagasaki A-bomb survivor Rev. Nobuaki Hanaoka. There will be video footage and an up to the minute report at the gates of the Livermore nuclear weapons lab, music from the peace and justice movement, a sing along with Betsy Rose, and more

The Livermore rally is part of an unprecedented national broadcast. Running on August 6 and 9, national coverage is organized by more than 160 organizations working together through the Hiroshima Nagasaki 75 collaboration. The organizers of the Livermore rally are part of this coalition. Find out more at: www.HiroshimaNagasaki75.org

On the Historic 75th Anniversary of the U.S. Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we are joining the survivors to abolish nuclear weapons.

We live in a time of growing nuclear peril. This year the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ iconic Doomsday Clock, designed in 1947 to show the risk of existential nuclear danger, was moved to 100 seconds to midnight. This is the closest to annihilation that it has ever been set.

Moreover, less than a month ago, on the anniversary of the Trinity Nuclear Test, President Trump declared, “In order to continue protecting America’s vital security interests, I have directed my Administration to revitalize and modernize America’s nuclear security complex…

Livermore Lab is central to the escalating the nuclear dangers we face. Eighty-eight percent of the funds for Livermore Lab in the coming year are slated for nuclear weapons activities. Less than two percent of the budget is allocated for civilian science.

15. Thursday, 5:00pm – 6:00p, J4BL – Virtual Press Conference on the 1 year Anniversary of Brandon Lee’s shooting

Online Event (virtual press conference)

http://tinyurl.com/j4blpresscon

Join the Justice 4 Brandon Lee Coalition, SFSU Community, Bayan USA, ICHRP-US, & SFCHRP for this online event to commemorate the 1 year anniversary of the attempted assassination of Brandon Lee, a journalist, environmentalist, and indigenous rights activist originally from San Francisco who was shot in the Ifugao province in the Philippines last August for his work. His perpetrators are still at large and justice has yet to be served. 

Lee’s story gained local, national, and international attention and was successful in raising public awareness around attacks against peasant communities, the killing of the poor under the guise of President Duterte’s “drug war”, and the plight of those who stand up to fascism in the Philippines, including journalists and environmentalists like Lee. Fortunately, Lee was able to be airlifted to San Francisco last October and Lee will provide an update to his recovery and campaign for justice.

You can watch this masterfully done video by Kapwa Kollective detailing what happened to Brandon Lee in his words.

Those who are interested in donating to the second phase of Lee’s campaign can do so through Venmo @SFCHRP or through Gofundme at http://gofundme.com/save-brandon-lee.  Funds will go towards his ongoing recovery and housing needs

Tens of millions are unemployed without a livable income, facing eviction, hungry, losing their healthcare, and struggling to survive amidst a raging pandemic. The unbearable conditions of this period have made it clear, the capitalists have declared war on the working class. Especially for Black, Brown and Indigenous workers, migrants, incarcerated workers, people with disabilities, young and older workers, houseless workers and more, the capitalists are using this crisis to find new ways to deepen exploitation.

This impact of the pandemic and the following economic crisis are entirely a product of capitalism – of putting the needs of profit before the needs of human life and the planet

Shut Down California’s Concentration Camps: Abolish ICE!

demands:

To save lives, Gov. Newsom and AG Becerra must immediately end ALL California cooperation with ICE. We demand that Gov. Newsom support the demands of detained immigrants, who are organizing across California, and community organizations:

1. Stop all transfers from California prisons and jails to ICE detention
2. Stop all expansion of detention centers in our state
3. Lead an independent investigation and hold detention centers accountable for putting lives at risk during the pandemic.

At the federal level, we are also fighting to Abolish ICE, Close the Camps and #FreeThemAll: ICE must release all detained people, starting with the most vulnerable to COVID. While decarceration takes place, ICE and private prison corporations must provide safe [housing], protective gear, and medical attention.
