A 22, Friday 12 Noon , March & Rally Against Police Killings in Bay Area

Assemble: 12 Noon Bernal Heights Park   (See map at http://tinyurl.com/qccrjzo
March via Mission Street to 450 Golden Gate Ave. (old Fed. Bldg)
3:00pm Demonstration: 450 Golden Gate Ave.
SF

 

Last March, San Francisco police officers shot and killed Alejandro Nieto in an act of blatant racist murder.  Three cops surrounded Nieto in a triangulated formation and riddled him with bullets. They are now trying to excuse the killing saying Nieto had a gun and that he was acting erratically.

None of their lies add up.  First of all, acting erratically is not a crime and cannot be the basis for killing someone. Nieto—a City College of San Francisco student and security guard—owned a taser gun as part of his work. The taser gun has a bright yellow stripe down the side specifically to differentiate it from a real gun. The cops were not in any danger, perceived or otherwise. 

Join the Nieto Family in submitting a federal civil complaint to activate the machinery of justice to learn the truth and expose SFPD lies. (The City will now be forced to hand over 911 call(s), witness statements, police reports, autopsy report, photos, video, etc.)

In fact, they murdered a Latino man for the crime of eating his dinner in a neighborhood that is becoming yet another center of gentrification in a city that is rapidly being reserved for the rich.  Bernal Heights, like many neighborhoods in San Francisco, used to be a place where working people could own homes and rent affordably.  

Since 1990, 376 San Francisco police officers have fired their weapons (45 of them have done so repeatedly). In that period, 65 people have died in officer-involved shootings, and more have been seriously injured or killed by gun shots or other acts of police brutality.  Police killings are a Bay Area epidemic: Oscar Grant, Kenneth Harding Jr., Alan Blueford, Andy Lopez, Yanira Serrano-Garcia, Errol Chang, the four recent killings of Latino men in Salinas, and now the latest killing of Jacorey Calhoun in Oakland.

People of all races and ethnicities join in action to protect their most basic civil and human right: Life—and specifically, the lives of youth of color.

A 22, Friday, 7:00pm , AIM leader Dennis Banks presents film “A Good Day to Die”

 

 ANSWER Office

 2969 Mission St., at 26th St.
San Francisco, California

 

We are proud to host Dennis Banks, Native American leader and co-founder of the American Indian Movement (A.I.M.), to speak and present the documentary “A Good Day to Die.” From the Anishnabe nation and born in Leech Lake Reservation, Minnesota, Dennis led historic struggles for the civil and human rights of Native American people, beginning in 1968. This stunning and compelling film presents an intimate look at Dennis Banks’ life beginning with his early experience in racist boarding schools, his military service in Japan, his transformative experience in Stillwater State Prison and subsequent founding of a movement that, through confrontational actions in Washington DC, South Dakota and Wounded Knee, changed the lives of American Indians.

A 25, Monday, 12 Noon – Rally Against Class Cancellations! (City College of San Francisco)

 

CCSF Ocean Campus,

 Ram Plaza (in front of Smith Hall)

  SF

 

We will rally and deliver petitions to administration telling them to stop the class cancellations. Displacing students undermines their confidence in our college and interrupts their educational progress. This is not the time to close the door to students eager and willing to enroll in classes

 

Class cancellations are harmful to our City College. Last semester more than 2,500 City College supporters 

signed a letter protesting class cancellations. Due to the hard work of CCSF advocates locally and statewide 

our college will receive stabilization funding for the next two years. Now is the time to stabilize and grow our CCSF as we work to recover from the damage done by the ACCJC.

A 28, Thursday, 12 Noon – Invisible No More: Workers Take Action at APPLE

 

One Stockton St, SF

The tech industry is booming in San Francisco but some workers are missing out. Not only is Apple the subject of a wage theft lawsuit by its retail employees, but it also uses an irresponsible security contractor, Security Industry Specialists (SIS), that has a history of policies that cheat workers out of a better way of life. Join us for a protest at the Apple store.

A 29, Friday, 6:30pm, Migration: Causes and Responses – Perspectives from the US and El Salvador

 

Women’s Building,

3543 18th St. San Francisco (between Valencia and Guerrero, 16th St. BART)
This space is wheelchair accessible; Spanish-English interpretation provided

 

Special event to kick off CISPES’ 15th National Convention

 

While the mainstream news is finally talking about the poverty and insecurity that are separating families in México and Central America and forcing so many to leave their homes, there is little analysis of the role that U.S. policy plays in creating those conditions. Even less is being said about what left and progressive governments are doing, for example in El Salvador and Nicaragua, to reduce poverty and inequality, which often involves standing up to transnational corporations and the enormous power they wield through trade agreements like NAFTA and CAFTA.

 

The Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador (CISPES)  welcomes Claudia Escobar, one of the women in leadership of the Salvadoran Union Front, which formed in 2005 as the Salvadoran working class’ “instrument of struggle.” She is the president of her union, which represents workers at the Ministry of Labor, and has a unique perspective on both labor and women’s struggles under the new FMLN government.

 

She will be joined by Angela Sanbrano, president of the National Alliance of Latino and Caribbean Communities (NALACC), and by David Bacon, who has written extensively on the root causes of migration, especially when it comes to US economic and foreign policy.

 

Suggested donation: $10-$30

Gather:

Pier 39, at a park on the corner of Beach St & The Embarcadero and marching the Hyatt Fisherman’s Wharf.

 

JOIN UNITE / HERE! AS WE MARCH AGAINST THE NON-UNION HOTEL

 

HYATT FISHERMAN’S WHARF

 

Hyatt Fisherman’s Wharf workers have been engaged in a struggle for dignity, respect, a voice on the job and a fair process to a card check since 2008. The Hyatt Fisherman’s Wharf was the first of 15 non-union Hyatt hotels to publicly call on Hyatt to agree to a fair process for workers to organize.

 

The Hyatt Fisherman’s Wharf is now owned by the real estate company Chesapeake Lodging Trust, but workers are still not afforded the same basic benefits and protections that unionized hotel workers across San Francisco have, like quality affordable health care, pension, and job security. We must show our power to the non-union Hyatt Fisherman’s Wharf who intends to destroy our standard of living!

S 4, Thursday, 7:00pm – 9:00pm,  Forum – Future of the Working Class

 The Eric Quezada Center for Culture and Politics

518 Valencia St, San Francisco, California 94110

 

From the fight to raise the minimum wage, the fight against displacement and the fight to keep City College open, the future of the working class in San Francisco is at stake. Activists from the front-lines of these struggles will discuss the current political landscape and map our way forward.

S 5, Friday, 4:00pm – 6:00pm, STOP URBAN SHIELD OAKLAND - Rally

 

Oakland Marriott

1001 Broadway

Oakland

 

As a part of the Week of Education & Action to Stop Urban Shield in Oakland, join us as we converge on the Oakland Marriott! The Marriott manages the City Center for the City of Oakland, and that convention center will be the site of much Urban Shield activity. ENOUGH! Pushing the Marriott is our first step to Stopping Urban Shield in Oakland and ending Urban Shield war games entirely. 

Building on growing resistance to police militarization in the US, Bay Area community organizations and the Facing Tear Gas campaign have come together to call for Oakland’s non-participation in Urban Shield, community self-determination, and solidarity with global movements. Urban Shield is connected to national police militarization programs such as 1033, 1122, Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI) and DHS Fusion Centers. Stopping Urban Shield is one step to roll back police militarization.
