He will enact a decree issued by the Court of Justice of the Union European Union, a modification which will result the sacking of 6,500 dockworkers. The plan is to fire Spanish dockworkers at a rate of 25% of their full strength each year, which means an absolute extinction of their employment within three years. Sacked dockworkers are to receive a severance packages of only 20 paid days per year worked.
“The Spanish Government threatens the growth of the Spanish economy and seeks to make the dockworker profession disappear from national ports,” rules Jordi Aragunde, IDC General Coordinator.
The Spanish port workers ́ union Coordinadora Estatal de Trabajadores del Mar – CETM plans to hold industrial action in the ports of Spain for 12 hours during each of the following days: The days 6, 8, 10, 13, 15, 17, 20, 22, and 24 of March, 2017.

Friday, 6:30pm – 8:30pm, Israeli Policies and Practices in Relation to the Trump Era
The Eric Quezada Center for Culture & Politics
518 Valencia St.
Two legal researchers, Marya Farah and Aseil Abu-Baker, who are US-licensed attorneys, will present.
Palestinian Youth Movement (PYM)- حركة الشباب الفلسطيني, AROC: Arab Resource & Organizing Center and General Union of Palestine Students -GUPS SFSU invite you to a presentation by Al-Haq, an independent legal organization from Palestine, for a conversation on the parallels between Israel’s policies in occupied Palestine and the Trump administration.
Since the settler colonial project of Israel was established as a state in 1948, the Israel government has used “security” as a pretext to further oppressive and racist policies and practices against the Palestinians. This include the Israeli government being a leader in the development of surveillance technology, building an Apartheid Wall, checkpoints, a racist ID system, arbitrary travel bans, imprisonment, and torture, resulting in the policing, and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians.
The Trump administration, like all US administrations before it, has taken several pages out of Israel’s playbook. The US and Israel have shared strategies, tactics, technology and training on how to better police and control targeted communities. Legal Researchers from Al-Haq will discuss these issues in light of international law.
Friday, 7:00pm – 9:00pm, Forum The Fight For Immigrant Rights in the Era of Trump
2969 Mission St. (nr. 24th Street BART)
Suggested donation $3 -$10 no one turned away
In January 2017, Donald J. Trump issued a series of bigoted executive orders instructing federal immigration agencies to deport millions of undocumented immigrants and build a wall along the U.S.- Mexico border.
This was a green light to the Border Patrol, ICE and other police agencies to step up their attacks on immigrant communities and deport millions more U.S. residents in the most violent and inhumane manner.
But immigrants and supporters, are organizing to fight these attacks. Join us for talks and discussion on how to fight back, not only on this critical issue and the entire Trump agenda.

The walking tour: San Francisco, Women’s History Month, and socio-economic analysis that will turn you right-side-up.

ROAR aka Revolutionary Organizing Against Racism Conference is a FREE two day event, organized by Northern California
Anti-Racist Action, that will be held on Ohlone Territory March 11th at OMNI Commons in Oakland and March 12th at California Institute for Integral Studies in San Francisco.
ROAR will be a space to gather, build, and learn from each other’s struggles and continue to build an anti-racist front in the Bay Area and beyond. During these times more and more attention is being paid to those of us who use direct action and hold liberatory and revolutionary politics. We can use this moment not only to inspire others through our actions, but to also inspire with our ideas. To draw a line not just against this or that politician, or this or that alt-right figure, but to construct revolutionary positions such as returning land to the indigenous, centering black folks and their perspectives, community self defense, taking care of one another, putting women and gender non conforming people to the front, obliterating borders, opening prison doors, and gaining our freedom from the state, capitalism, and all the other damning institutions.

Saturday, 12 Noon – 3:00pm, International Working Women’s Day March & Celebration
24th Street & Mission
Join GABRIELA USA and the International Women’s Alliance on Saturday, in commemorating the 108th International Working Women’s Day anniversary in honor of the first women strikers in 1909.
within the first month of Trump’s administration, Trump has issued 12 Executive orders attacking everything from immigrant communities, our Muslim brothers and sisters, to the millions of us who depend on the government for subsidized health care. He’s pushed forward the Dakota Access and Keystone Pipelines against the self-determination of the indigenous peoples of this land, nominated white supremacists, climate deniers, and the super wealthy into his cabinet, and he has exposed the fascist, racist, xenophobic, and misogynist truths of this country.
*Note* This will be a family friendly march and celebration that will be accessible for children, elders, and people with disability. We will also be organizing our own safety/security team.

Defend the Children and Families and Stop Restart of Japanese Nuclear Plants!
The crisis and dangers of the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe continues unabated. While the Abe government has said the crisis is over the nuclear plants continues to leak radioactive material. They still have not removed all the melted radioactive material from Fukushima unit 2 where there was estimated radiation of 650 Sieverts per hour according to noise analysis of the images transmitted by the robot before its camera went dark near the melted core.
At the same time the government is demanding that mothers and their families return to Fukushima or their subsidies will be eliminated. These mothers and their children are still being subjected to continued government harassment and mental stress. On March 11, 2017, we need to stand with the mothers and their children and demand that they not be forced by the Abe government to return to Fukushima.

Saturday, 7:00pm – 9:00pm, The Attack on Immigrants What Trump Can and Can’t Do
Niebyl Proctor Library
A Speak Out Now Forum with investigative reporter and photographer David Bacon
Trump and those he represents are attacking the most vulnerable members of our society – recent immigrants, especially those without documentation. This is part of a strategy to divide us in the face of attacks aimed at enriching the billionaire class.
But those under attack are not without power. Immigrant labor is vital to many industries. Today about 57% of the country’s entire agricultural workforce is undocumented. But many other industries are dependent on immigrant labor including: meatpacking, some construction trades, building services, healthcare, restaurant and retail services. This power, mobilized with other workers, can put an end to these attacks.

Sunday, 6:30pm – 8:30pm, Humanism in prisons and outside: The struggle for a different future
Nimbly Proctor Library
6501 Telegraph Ave.
The need for human solidarity has never been clearer in the face of fascist nationalisms worldwide. Can we learn from prisoners, who were set against each other by the prison system and who overcame those divisions and worked out an “Agreement to End Hostilities.” Their solidarity transformed their lives and ended use of indeterminate solitary confinement in California. It also opened new discussions of the meaning of the movements for freedom, which go way beyond the struggle for better conditions of imprisonment. The reason of women prisoners has also won important victories and opened new discussions on how human solidarity can make a difference in today’s world.
Marxist-Humanist and prison rights activist with California Coalition for Women Prisoners and the Prisoners’ Human RIghts Movement (formerly Pelican Bay Hunger Strike Support Committee), Urszula Wislanka, will lead off this discussion.

2134 Martin Luther King Jr. Way
City Council Chambers – 2nd Floor
If you cannot attend this meeting, email Berkeley city council: council [at] cityofberkeley.info
Tell them to not offer city police assistance if the UC decides to raid and clear People’s Park for development.
On March 14th, the city of Berkeley is renewing the mutual aid compendium for 2017. The Berkeley police receive and request mutual aid with other police departments and government agencies involved in policing. The item pertaining to mutual aid is listed on the March 14th agenda packet as item #26, titled “Agreements, with Other Law Enforcement Agencies, Police Departments or Private Security Organizations”
The UC Regents, the governing board of the University of California system, are meeting on March 15th and 16th to vote on approving a dorm to be built in People’s Park. According to Executive Vice Chancellor Carol Christ, the UC is ready to start the initial steps of development shortly after approval is given.
To help save People’s Park, we must demand that the city of Berkeley not assist in the clearing of People’s Park. The city police should not offer mutual aid in the raid of People’s Park and subsequent UC police actions against protesters trying to save People’s Park.
