Berkeley Campus On Lockdown After Loose Pages From ‘Wall Street Journal’ Found On Park Bench (theonion.com)

BERKELEY, CA—Advising students to remain in their dormitories and classrooms until the situation was resolved, the University of California, Berkeley declared a campuswide lockdown Thursday after several loose pages from The Wall Street Journal were found on a park bench outside a school building. “At 11:15 this morning, several pages from two separate sections of today’s Wall Street Journal were discovered spread across a bench outside of Eshleman Hall in Lower Sproul Plaza,” read the urgent alert sent to all students and faculty, emphasizing that while campus security and local police had safely disposed of the pages, there was no way of knowing if others were strewn elsewhere on university grounds. “As of now, the perpetrator remains at large, so it is vital that you stay where you are until the all-clear is given. In the meantime, notify police immediately if you have any additional information at all regarding this incident.” At press time, a black-clad group of 50 students were throwing bottles at the bench while chanting, “No Nazis, No KKK, No Fascist U.S.A!”

Oakland City Hall
1 Frank Ogawa Plaza
Oakland

Together We Stand and Open Circle – Families United For Justice is announcing a National Day of Action for Justice for Diallo Neal. We are calling on all families and coalitions to join us and the mother of Diallo Neal, Gilda Baker, as we rally for an investigation to take place.

Diallo Neal was killed in a motorcycle “accident” in October 2005 after a chase with California Highway Patrol. Five years passed before his mother, Gilda Baker, began to put together the pieces of her son’s death. Eyewitnesses came forward saying that a CHP motorbike had shoved Diallo Neal, causing the fatal accident. A private investigator’s report revealed a number of issues with an inconsistent police narrative. We believe that Diallo Neal’s death was a homicide and that an investigation needs to take place.

Artist Television Access
992 Valencia St.
SF

In their break-out first feature, Ojibway filmmakers Adam (in person) and Zack Khalil fearlessly reclaim the Native narrative from the museums that would confine it to the past, instead weaving a formally and intellectually complex essay on contemporary Indian identity.

The kaleidoscopic experience mixes doc, narrative, and experimental modes, transcending linear colonized history to explore how tribal prophecy resonates through the generations in their Great Lakes region. Using personal interviews, animated drawings, performance, and provocative inter-cutting, the Khalil brothers’ debut makes a bold case for indigenous people to be their own storytellers.

This took place in the SF Mission District at Foote and Mission. There were multiple witnesses, his familiy bravely tried to help him, even pulling officers off him and his mother stopped an officer from further beating Michael with his baton.

Now the DA has charged Michael with 3 Felony Counts. Of course they don’t want this to go to trial, so they are going to offer Michael a plea deal.Michael has decided to reject the deal and take this to court. Please join him on Monday, April 24th and let him know he has our support!

Panel Discussion with Youth, Families, and Teachers. A diverse panel in frank conversations about protecting our children’s safety and raising them to be resilient and proud of their identities while also showing up for their friends. We will talk about race, gender, and power dynamics in bullying and daily life, with families of color and families with other marginalized identities at the center of the conversation.

Families will also learn to identify and acknowledge their privileged identities and help children understand how to be more aware of privilege and share it for justice.

First they came for the homeless 

April 19, 2017

Changes at The Poor Tour. Today, we called our first GA since beginning this occupation over 6 months ago. I’m moving on, and the community must continue. The rules are in place, and they are trying out the consensus based government.

What we have accomplished is big. It needs to continue helping people. This month, three will have moved on. Three new people can come in. And so it will go.

A responsibly run tent community is the fastest and cheapest option for helping the homeless. We have proven it.

Why won’t the city listen?

OccupySF Announcements for Friday 4/21 (from Adrienne Fong)

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Friday, April 21

  1. Friday, 4/21, 8:30am – Sunday, 4/23, 5:00pm, 8th Annual International Islamophobia Conference

UC Berkeley School of Law – Boalt Hall

RSVP: https://irdproject.com/islamophobiaconf/islamophobiaconf-rsvp/

Islamophobia is most commonly understood to be a problem that impacts adversely on Muslim minorities living in Western countries

The conference addresses questions of the relationship between liberalism (and neo-liberalism) and Islamophobia. We particularly will have presentations that respond to the following themes:

-What is the relation between the discourse of ‘take our country back’ and the post-Cold war liberal political order?
-What intellectual and political resources and possibilities now exist for imagining the West in contravention of Islamophobia?
-Is the presence of the non-white, culturally unassimilable, rights bearing subject a political problem for western liberalism?
-What is the relationship between neo-liberal economic policies and rise of Islamophobia?

Berkeley Sanctioned Encampment Rules of Conduct (from Mike Zint)

The occupation rules and government. This is how we succeeded in getting this far. This is how you occupy.

Berkeley Sanctioned Encampment Rules of Conduct
· Every resident must agree to these rules.
· No (street) drugs and/or alcohol (prescription drugs are exempt)
· No rowdy behavior
· 9 PM – 9 AM noise curfew
· All personal gear must be kept in tents, except for bicycles (one bike per person).
· Clean up after yourself
· No outside guests within the perimeter
· Maintain a “Good Neighbor” policy
· Maintain [a spirit of? ] self-sufficiency and mutual aid
· Each new resident is subject to a three day probationary period, followed by an additional two week period.
· Breaking a rule constitutes a strike – three strikes and out (a minimum 30 day suspension or permanent expulsion)
· Internal governance is defined in a separate document (see below) – basically a modified consensus procedure is to be used

Encampment Self-Governance Procedures

Self rule with consensus.

On items for approval, a desired 100% consensus is sought, with a graduated scale.
· 70% minimum is required to approve an item, but it must be revisited monthly to revise and improve consensus percentage.
· At 80% approval, an item gets revisited every two months to revise and improve consensus percentage.
· At 90% approval, an item gets revisited every 6 months to revise and improve consensus.

· If 100% approval is reached, the only way to revisit is with 51% approval to revisit.

If an item goes from above 70% approval to below 70% approval, it is dropped as an item unless resubmitted. [it is no part of the rules or no longer a resolution of the camp?]

To submit, a proposal needs to be made with 10% community backing. To revisit an item earlier than scheduled requires 51% community support.

Items must be revised before being resubmitted.

Changes in the government can be made following these basic rules. Unpopular items can be revisited and lose consensus. As the village evolves, these guidelines will allow for the government and community guidelines to evolve

8. Wednesday, 5:30pm – 6:30pm, The Drive to War Against North Korea and the Danger of World War III

UC Berkeley
247 Dwinelle Hall
Berkeley

Not since the height of the Cold War has the danger of a war between major nuclear armed powers been so great.

In the past two weeks the Trump Administration has fired cruise missiles at a Syrian base with Russian military personal operating out of it, fired the largest non-atomic weapon in history to intimidate its adversaries, and, now, has threatened North Korea with assassinations and a pre-emptive strike. The Democratic Party and media, which has opposed Trump on the basis of his attempt at a rapprochement with Russia, now bursts out in ecstatic praise for Trump’s recent spate of warmongering.

Behind the US threat to North Korea lies the more fundamental conflict with China, which American officials and military strategists see as a major long-term economic and geopolitical competitor. At the center of the campaign on the Korean peninsula is the effort to force China, which also possesses nuclear weapons, to accept US hegemony over the Asia-Pacific region.

The war drive of Washington, backed by Seoul and Tokyo, has no progressive content. They have no regard for the suffering of the North Korean people or for the potential of even greater suffering in war. US and Japanese imperialism, backed by South Korea, seek to deepen their hegemony in the region

Ms Kim, a female welder who spearheaded the struggle to democratize the union in the mid-1980s, was eventually fired by the company, and has been waging a persistent battle for reinstatement since then. She emerged as a key figure in the “democratic” labor movement of South Korea over the 1990s as one of the most committed leaders of the metal workers’ union movement and in the recent decades has become the champion of irregular workers.

This is the first hearing in the lawsuit by developer Phil Tagami attempting to overturn the City of Oakland’s ban on coal storage and handling at the former Oakland Army Base.

The Court will hear a motion by Sierra Club and San Francisco Baykeeper to be accepted as “intervenors” so that they can participate as full parties supporting the City’s effort to defeat Tagami’s lawsuit.

In addition, the court will consider two motions to dismiss sections of the lawsuit—one seeking dismissal of Tagami’s claim for breach of contract and one seeking dismissal of Tagami’s claim that his constitutional rights were violated by the City’s ban because it discriminated against out-of-state commercial interests and unduly burdened interstate commerce.
