A 11, Friday, 5:00 pm “Keep Our Teachers: March to End the Displacement of San Francisco’s Educators!”   

   Meet at Corner of Dolores & 20th Streets
   March Ends at 151 Duboce
         SF

 Join Eviction Free San Francisco and allied housing rights activists to march to KEEP OUR TEACHERS! We will march to the homes of 4 teachers who are currently facing eviction in the Mission/ Dolores area and demand that their evictions, and the evictions of all of our educators, be rescinded.

Where:
Meet at the corner of 20th and Dolores St. and march to the homes of teachers in the area (see below), ending at 151 Duboce St.

Where we are marching and who we are marching for:
-812 Guerrero St.- Claudia and Evan, two local teachers who are being Ellis Act Evicted.
-Mission High School- to show solidarity for teachers and students who are facing eviction.
-55 Dolores St.- Sarah, a teacher, and her friend Mary, who will turn 98 are being Ellis Act Evicted by Urban Green
-49 Guerrero- Mervyn, is also being evicted by Urban Green
-151 Duboce St.- Benito, a special ed teacher, is being Ellis Act Evicted.

As more and more of our city gets bought up by greedy speculators and sold for a profit, we lose the important educators who are so fundamental in keeping our community functional and whole. San Francisco is no longer affordable for a teacher’s income and those who live here, face eviction. What will happen when we lose our teachers? Lets fight to for our city!

This is a family friendly march, we encourage students, teachers and all those effected by the lose of teachers to come show your solidarity and support! See schedule /timeline below

  Friday- 7:00pm

 Women’s Building  (Auditorium)

    3543 18th Street

     SF        

April 11th 7:00pm – Spotlight on the Abortion Rights Emergency:

In light of the emergency situation, people in major cities across the country who consider themselves to be “pro-choice” will be part of re-claiming the moral high ground around abortion rights, changing the terms of this debate, and joining in
mass resistance to stop these attacks on women’s lives.  We will bring alive women’s stories — before Roe and today, the struggles of those who risk their lives to provide abortions, and the full anti-woman program driving this war on women!

Speakers include:

Dr. Malcolm Potts, a human reproductive scientist, Professor at the School of Public Health at UC Berkeley, author, and abortion provider.

Dr. Martha Madison Campbell, a Lecturer at UC Berkeley, in the School of Public Health.  In the 1990s she directed the population program, including reproductive rights.

Alexandria Petersburg, organizer for Stop Patriarchy in the Bay Area, and Abortion Rights Freedom Rider.

Kelly Hammargren, artist & Chair of the 4Choice2013 project.

joined by women young and old(er) who will tell their abortion stories.

Meet at Washington Square Park at 4:00 PM for preparation & orientation.

 

Saints Peter & Paul Church  - 666 Filbert Street  -  San Francisco

 

Join people from all walks of life across the nation on this day, as we hold silent protests outside of the headquarters of institutions that are spearheading the attacks on abortion rights.  In San Francisco we will go to the “home parish” of the anti-abortion
Walk for “Life” 2014 – the event that drew thousands to SF on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade and works to abolish all abortion.  We will raise bloody coat hangers and wear shackles to represent the world they are working for: one where women are driven to desperation, death, and forced motherhood.  Others will hold signs with the names, faces, and facts about women who have died from illegal abortions. After
an hour of silent protest we will break the shackles and pledge to resist and reverse these attacks on abortion rights, and win abortion on demand and without apology.

A 12, Saturday, 3:00 pm – 1st Planning Meeting for May 1st International Workers’ Day Action

24th and Mission St., In the Plaza – West side of BART STATION, SF

 

On May 1st, International Workers’ Day, millions of people from around the world will take to the streets to show the workers’ collective power of resistance. While May Day was born here in the U.S., the date largely went unnoticed for many years until the 2006 immigrant rights movement reestablished May 1st as a day to take to the streets. Today, as workers are facing poverty wages, evictions and foreclosures, deportations, police brutality and countless other forms of oppression, the date is an important one which can unite these issues that affect all workers.

In San Francisco, there will be a May 1st action at 24th and Mission at 4pm. Join community groups and activists to plan the march for this important date by attending the first planning meeting this Sat., April 12 at 24th and Mission Sts. at 3pm, in the plaza on the west side of the BART station.

Join Eviction Free San Francisco and the tenants’ justice movement in protest of one of San Francisco’s biggest serial evictors!

Kaushik “Kenny” Dattani’s greedy ways have earned him the notoriety of becoming of part of the Anti-Eviction Mapping Projects Dirty Dozen: http://antievictionmap.squarespace.com/dirty-dozen/. In his career as a landlord, he has ruthlessly evicted 25 of his units, and now he is after the home of long-term Mission residents Tom and Patricia!

Let’s help keep our friends in their home by turning up the heat on Dattani. How are we going to do this? Hint: part of Dattani’s services is accounting. We thought that Tax Day, April 15, would be a great opportunity to encourage this landlord to do the right thing by backing off the eviction of Tom and Patricia.

Call, E-mail, or FAX Dattani the following:

“”Hi, my name is______ and I am asking you today, Tax Day, to cease the eviction of your tenants at 3305 20th Street. I am aware that Tom and Patricia have been loyal, responsible, rent paying tenants, and that Patricia is living off of disability income and may not be easily rehoused. This is not right. Please, have a heart, and consider the people that will be hurt by this eviction if it continues to happen.”

A 28, Monday, 7:00pm – SF Workers Memorial Day-Fighting for Health And Safety & Healthcare For Injured Workers Remember The Dead, Fight For The Living

 

ILWU Local 34
5 Berry St./Next To AT&T Ball Park San Francisco, CA

 

Join injured workers, health and safety advocates, healthcare advocates and others on Workers Memorial Day in San Francisco on April 28, 2014. In California workers face a more and more dangerous situation on the job with injuries and deaths from workplace toxins and hazards. New technologies such as biotech and nanotech are unregulated and workers union and unorganized who speak out about health and safety are illegally retaliated against in many workplaces.

 

California has only 166 OSHA inspectors for 18 million workers and the state refuses to even hire more inspectors with money that has already been appropriated. Ca-OSHA whistleblowers are now speaking out about the need to defend Ca-OSHA to protect California workers on the job. There is a growing scandal at Cal-OSHA and DIR because they have not spent the money they have for a proper number of OSHA inspectors.

Workplace bullying on the job is also creating more health problems including depression which is now a larger part of workplace injuries yet has been threatened by California  SB 863 which limits compensation for these injuries.

 

Injured workers also face a growing crisis after they have to go through one obstacle course after another to get their healthcare. Doctors who are not even licensed in California operate through an outsourced company called Maximus which has anonymous doctors giving determination about whether workers are able to get their healthcare needs met.

On this day we will commemorate those workers killed on the job and those workers and their families who are fighting for healthcare and justice on the job.

 

Initial Speakers:

Brenda Barros, SEIU 1021 SF Cope Chair and SF General Hospital Worker

Dr. Larry Rose, Past Medical Director Cal-OSHA

National Day of Action Against Fusion Centers

Boston- Charlotte- – Dallas- Los Angeles- Oakland*- San Francisco*- Washington D.C.

Flier

Tomorrow community members across the nation will be gathering to protest and expose Mega-Spy Centers that are infiltrating our communities. These Mega Spy Centers a.k.a Fusion Centers collect and store information supplied by various law enforcement agencies and share this information to local, state and federal agency including private contractors. There are approximately 85 fusion centers in the U.S. -the Norwalk, CA Fusion Center is one of the largest in the country -known as Joint Regional Intelligence Center (JRIC). On March 11, 2014 the New York Times revealed that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) approved the sharing of raw NSA data with the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), the agency oversees that programs like fusion centers. NSA spying has come home to roost; through fusion centers, local police may have access, without a warrant, to all the data the NSA has on you.

We will be live streaming tomorrow check it out here:

Join the Fight!

Its time to put pressure on the State Officials!

Discussion — CCSF 2014 vs. SF State Strike 1968

Protesters march near 19th and Holloway on SF State campus, 1968. from “Crisis at SF State” © 1969 by Insight Publications

Why did the 1968 SF State Strike succeed, grabbing the attention of the entire nation (and that is no exaggeration) and yet City College of San Francisco in 2014 still barely elicits local attention, much more any notable victories that have prevented the taking over of our Commons by the privateers of profit over the priorities of basic human values. For to this date after almost two years of struggle, there exists a Net Loss in terms of the original mission statement of CCSF to serve the interest of All the residents of San Francisco.

The corporate marauders of Our College through their bought and paid for traitorous apparatchiks have eviscerated, if no other thing else mattered, the enrollment population of CCSF and thus crippled, blew off the legs of and mutilated the life of what was once the exemplary mother ship of city colleges throughout California. What’s left is just guerrilla warfare as they will return and slice away with their profit seeking, blood soaked blades whatever is left for their taking.

But one thing I learned as a recently discharged Marine infantryman who found himself on the campus of SF State in 1968, where my political education was to have begun, was that a third world army of dedicated men and women fighting for their existence were capable of defeating the most horrendously and monstrously created dominant military force ever unleashed upon a diminutive nation of people. January 30, 1968, the Vietnamese Army shocked the US military and its allies with the Tet Offensive, a massive surprise attack that was the beginning of the end for this nation’s incursion upon a land that was not ours, upon a people who lost almost three million lives in the “American War”. To this day, I cannot understand how they could ever have forgiven us for such brutal annihilation of their land and families for what? For what? Read moreRead more

 A 8, Tuesday 7:00pm – 9:00 pm “All On The Same Ocean”  Hong Kong Dock Workers Visit San Francisco Striking Hong Kong Dockworkers Speak on Globalization, Subcontracting and International Solidarity

Unite-Here Local 2
209 Golden Gate Ave., San Francisco, CA 94102

In the spring of 2013, a 40 day strike by 500 dockworkers at the Hong Kong Port aroused massive support in Hong Kong society and throughout the world. The target was one of the world’s richest and most powerful men – oligarch Li Kai-shing. The Hong Kong dockworkers, suffering years of frozen wages and inhumane conditions, divided by a subcontracting system meant to deflect labor unity, with no legal access to collective bargaining, in heart of the global capital’s leading city… struggled and prevailed, giving us a clear view of the power of workers against not merely one boss, but a system that is generating inequality everywhere it spreads. Their tenacity, militancy and ultimate victory provides a moment of inspiration for citizens and workers universally.

Speakers:

Stephan Chan is a rank & file dockworker, employed as a sub-contracted checker in the Kwai Tung terminal. He helped to organize the Union of Hong Kong Dockers (UHKD) in 2005 and served as its first chairperson. He remains one of the core leaders of the union and played a vital role during the April 2013 strike.

Loy Wong is an organizing secretary of Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions (HKCTU), with more than 12 years of experience in the trade union. He leads the organizing and support work for unions in the transportation and logistics sector, including the Union of Hong Kong Dockworkers.

The San Francisco Event is endorsed by:
Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions, ILWU Local 10, ILWU Local 34, SF Labor Council, SF Progressive Workers Alliance, Chinese Progressive Association, SF Jobs with Justice, Inlandboatmen’s Union SF Region-ILWU, UNITE HERE Local 2, Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance (APALA), Labor Notes, Empire-Logistics/Supply Chain Group

-812 Guerrero St.- Claudia and Evan, two local teachers who are being Ellis Act Evicted.
-Mission High School- to show solidarity for teachers and students who are facing eviction.
-55 Dolores St.- Sarah, a teacher, and her friend Mary, who will turn 98 are being Ellis Act Evicted by Urban Green
-49 Guerrero- Mervyn, is also being evicted by Urban Green
-151 Duboce St.- Benito, a special ed teacher, is being Ellis Act Evicted.

As more and more of our city gets bought up by greedy speculators and sold for a profit, we lose the important educators who are so fundamental in keeping our community functional and whole. San Francisco is no longer affordable for a teacher’s income and those who live here, face eviction. What will happen when we lose our teachers? Lets fight to for our city!

This is a family friendly march, we encourage students, teachers and all those effected by the lose of teachers to come show your solidarity and support! See schedule /timeline below

 A 11, Friday 7:00pm  and  A 12 Saturday 4:00pm – Emergency Actions to Stop the War on Women   

  Friday- 7:00pm

 Women’s Building  (Auditorium)
3543 18th Street
     SF        

April 11th 7:00pm – Spotlight on the Abortion Rights Emergency: Hold programs on/in campuses, communities, religious congregations, and theaters bringing alive: women’s abortion stories – before Roe and today, the struggles of those who risk their lives to provide abortions, and the full anti-woman program driving this war.      

Saturday – 4:00pm

 Meet at Washington Square Park
     SF

 April 12th 4:00pm – Bloody Coat-Hanger Street Actions: Assemble at institutions behind this war (anti-abortion churches, Pregnancy Crisis Centers, etc.). People wearing all white will raise coat hangers dripping in blood, representing the women who die when abortion is unavailable.

Others in all black will hold pictures, names and statistics of the women who have died already.

Everyone will wear shackles. After one hour of silent protest, people will break the shackles and recite a pledge to resist and call on others to join in mass resistance to defeat this war.

When abortion is illegal or unavailable, women die. An estimated 5,000+ women died each year in the U.S. before abortion was legal and 47,000 die worldwide each year currently from unsafe and illegal abortions. Further, when abortion is not available, millions more women have their lives foreclosed as they are forced to bear children against their will and all women are devalued and subjugated.

Yet today, abortion rights in the U.S. hang by a thread

 In the last three years, 203 restrictions on abortion rights have been passed. Last year Texas had over forty clinics that provided abortions, by September there will be only six left. Five states have only one abortion clinic. On March 3rd, an abortion clinic in Montana was closed indefinitely after severe vandalism. Everywhere, a tremendous stigma hangs over women who get abortions.

The fight over abortion has never been about babies. It has always been about control over women. Forcing women to have children against their will is a form of enslavement.

 3222 – 22nd Street
   SF

Join Eviction Free San Francisco and the tenants’ justice movement in protest of one of San Francisco’s biggest serial evictors!

Kaushik “Kenny” Dattani’s greedy ways have earned him the notoriety of becoming of part of the Anti-Eviction Mapping Projects Dirty Dozen: http://antievictionmap.squarespace.com/dirty-dozen/. In his career as a landlord, he has ruthlessly evicted 25 of his units, and now he is after the home of long-term Mission residents Tom and Patricia!

Let’s help keep our friends in their home by turning up the heat on Dattani. How are we going to do this? Hint: part of Dattani’s services is accounting. We thought that Tax Day, April 15, would be a great opportunity to encourage this landlord to do the right thing by backing off the eviction of Tom and Patricia.

Call, E-mail, or FAX Dattani the following:

“”Hi, my name is______ and I am asking you today, Tax Day, to cease the eviction of your tenants at 3305 20th Street. I am aware that Tom and Patricia have been loyal, responsible, rent paying tenants, and that Patricia is living off of disability income and may not be easily rehoused. This is not right. Please, have a heart, and consider the people that will be hurt by this eviction if it continues to happen.”
