Public banking is where many divestment efforts converge. Divesting from prisons, pipelines, and fossil fuels has been a crucial tactic for movements advocating for the rights of incarcerated people, Indigenous people, Palestinians, and the 99-percent. RE-Investment via public banking has re-emerged as an avenue to fulfill to these calls for divestment. Here in San Francisco, people are pushing for a movement to divest our city taxpayer money from Wall Street, and reinvest that money in affordable housing, green energy infrastructure, schools and more.

Tuesday gave us many reasons to celebrate – the first Muslim and Native American women elected to Congress; the youngest ever woman elected to Congress; the passing of Amendment 4 in Florida to restore voting rights to people previously convicted of a felony. But yesterday, our celebrations were again overshadowed by the devastating reality of violence in our communities: the gunning down of 12 Americans at a bar in Thousand Oaks, CA by a Marine veteran. This makes 307 mass shooting in 2018 alone. This Sunday at 8:00pm EST (5pm PT), on the 100 year anniversary of Armistice Day, we… Continue reading

Medicare for All:  Post midterms national strategy call @ Conference call
Tuesday was a huge victory for so many reasons. Democrats now control the House of Representatives — that means we have a crucial check on Trump and an opportunity to advance key progressive issues. One of those is HR 676 – the Expanded & Improved Medicare for All Act. With the Democrats now in the majority, we can move HR 676 to the House floor and pass it — but only if we continue to build the mass movement and step up the pressure on politicians. For the first time ever, passing Medicare for All in the House is within… Continue reading

    Emergency Meeting to Respond to massive ICE Raids.
    Sunday, 1/21, 3-5:30PM
    Sports Basement, 1590 Bryant St., San Francisco
    (1st floor conference room)
    https://www.facebook.com/events/311667262686650/

    This past week ICE has arrested prominent immigrants rights leaders and raided nearly 100 7-Eleven stores nationwide. And now word has leaked of the biggest round of immigration raids yet — with plans to arrest 1,500 people — specifically targeting the Bay Area to go after sanctuary cities. This is a fascist, and very explicitly political assault.

    This is really a “then they came for the immigrants” moment – the Bay Area has to say “NO!” in a lot of ways and through different expressions. Groups and and individuals, everyone needs to take part, with a spirit in line with the airport protests of last January.

    Join us for an emergency mass meeting to respond to the ICE raids that are set to target immigrants within the Bay Area in the next few weeks. THIS CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO GO DOWN. “First the came for the immigrants…” It is up to us to stop them! Join us to discuss the situation and make plans for mass resistance.

    In the name of humanity, we REFUSE to allow our brothers and sisters to be taken!

    In the name of Humanity, We Refuse to Accept a Fascist America!

    Hi, I just want you to know that there is going to be an event in San Francisco hosted by a Rupert Murdock company called Remodelista. The Event takes place at Heath Ceramics, 2900 18th Street, San Francisco, CA 94110; December 10th and 11th. We are crafts people at the event and we are choosing not to participate after learning Rupert Murdock recent holdings in this company. This is our act of Protest against the election of Trump and Rupert Murdocks media’s falsehoods. We will notify all the vendors at this event of our decision. We would love to see a peaceful and vocal protest out side the event. It is very important for the shoppers to know that they are giving Rupert Murdock their money. How can we get word out to let people know that our voice needs to be heard? Our Money counts and hitting them at their pocket book helps. Remodelista is also putting together an event in Portland. We are attempting to make contact with other activist to put together a vocal group. If you have any connections please let them know our cause. Thank you.
