4. Wednesday, 12Noon – 1:00pm, Action To Protest Fascist Argentina Pres Melei’s Attack On Workers Party PO & Polo Obrero 

SF Federal Building
90 7th Street

Stop The Repression, Privatization & Union Busting By Fascist Melie & US Support IMF. Support For Melei

The growing world wide fascist movement is part and parcel of what is happeing in Argentina today. The fascist Melei government is instituting a massive assault on the working class with privatization of education and public services and also attacking democratic rights of workers and the people of Argentina.

They have also stopped all delivery of food to poor people who face starvation because of massive inflation. Polo Obrero which has organized the distribution of the food is also under attack and the corrupt Milei government on Monday June 3 raided the offices of the Workers Party PO claiming that they have engaged in corruption in the distribution of food which is being done by Polo Obrero.

This is a blatant political attack without any legal basis but it is aimed at shutting down the PO from opposing the fascist policies of the Milei government.
It has also taken place in part because the PO along with the Left Front organized the first public protest against the Milei regime and this front is fighting for a continuing general strike against the fascist Milei government.

The US government and IMF have fully backed Milei and the US military with the support of Milei is setting up a new base. The CIA has also visited Argentina and Milei to begin preparation for a possible military dictatorship. In 1974 the US, CIA in collusion with AFL-CIO helped organize a military coup that killed thousands of workers and people. The fight to hold those responsible for the murders and terror is opposed by Milei and his fascist government who includes family members who were involved in the coup. The US, CIA and AFL-CIO leadership have never been held accountable for the tortures, imprisonment and murders of the US supported military government.

The rise of fascism in the US is connected directly with the developments in Argentina and that is why Milei is coming to Silicon Valley, Florida and the US in his efforts to build a global fascism movement. This is also backed openly by Trump and his supporters.

On June 12 there will be massive actions in Argentina and the action called in San Francisco is part of a global struggle not only against the Milei but against the growing fascist movement in the US and around the world.

5. Wednesday, 5:00pm, Google: Divest from Genocide!  Rally & Action

Google San Francisco
1 Market St.

Divestment from tech to the university!

Join Google workers rallying in San Francisco to continue heeding the call from Palestinian trade unions to stop arming Israel and powering the genocide of Palestinians in Gaza.

In April, Google workers staged coast-to-coast sit-ins, one at Google NYC and one in Sunnyvale at Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian’s office to protest Project Nimbus — Google and Amazon’s $1.2B contract with the Zionist state and IOF. 9 Google workers were arrested and 50 were fired. Google workers refuse to be silenced by the company’s mass retaliation, and they will be rallying at Google’s 1 Market St. office in SF to support our retaliated coworkers and demand that Google stop powering the AI-facilitated genocide in Gaza.

Google’s indiscriminate retaliation of its 50 workers is not unique — countless workers – nurses, doctors, teachers, professors, student workers, warehouse workers, and beyond – have faced repression when standing up for Palestine, and we stand in solidarity with them.

Tech workers call for divestment and an end to Project Nimbus, mirroring students’ calls for divestment. As tech workers, our organizing is inspired by the student intifada and labor organizing for Palestine. This rally is to strengthen our joint fight — and to continue the call for divestment from Israel: from universities to the tech industry. We won’t stop organizing until Palestine is free, from the river to the sea.

Our fights are connected: student-talent pipeline is extremely important to big tech, and together we’ll show them that students, like tech workers, will not allow their labor to be used by these corporations to aid the genocidal state of Israel for its oppression and decimation of Palestinians. And tech workers stand with students demanding their universities divest — in the Bay Area and beyond!

We’ll be joined by Bay Area Labor for Palestine; Student encampment leaders from University of California – San Francisco, San Francisco State University, and Stanford; Union Nurses for Palestine; and more!

Thursday, June 13

8. Thursday, 2:00pm – 3:00pm (PT); 5:00pm – 6:00pm (ET), Militarization: Destroying the Environment in Okinawa and the World 

Online registration: Militarization: Destroying the Environment in Okinawa and the World – World BEYOND War

War and militarization are the Earth’s greatest enemies, and this remains especially true in Okinawa, Japan. The Battle of Okinawa during WWII decimated 200,000 human lives and destroyed much of the environment in the prefecture. The militarization of Okinawa, carried out by the U.S. occupation of Okinawa from 1945 to 1972, has created a dreadful situation: Okinawa, while accounting for only 0.6 percent of Japan’s land mass, bears approximately 70 percent of the land area used for U.S. military bases in Japan. As a consequence, the people of Okinawa have been forced to live with and fight against water and land contamination, unbearable noise from aircraft, the danger of aircraft crashes, and other forms of environmental destruction by the U.S. military.

In this open press conference, Abby Martin, an American journalist and filmmaker known for her anti-war and anti-militarization documentaries, will introduce her film “The U.S. Military: Planet Earth’s Greatest Enemy” and provide an overview of how the U.S. military is destroying the Earth.

 Hideki Yoshikawa, an Okinawan scholar and activist, will explain how the Japanese and U.S. governments are destroying the environment of Henoko-Oura Bay in Okinawa, one of the areas richest in biodiversity in Japan, through the construction of an air base there, and how the people of Okinawa and the environment have fought back.

This is an open press conference organized by Okinawa Interest Group, Peace Philosophy Centre, Okinawa Environmental Justice Project, and World BEYOND War for journalists, media personnel, and anyone interested in learning more about how the U.S. military presence in Okinawa affects the environment.
