J 15, Monday, 6:00pm – 9:00pm, OccupyForum Presents: “1971” Film and Discussion

Global Exchange
2017 Mission St. (nr. 16th Street BART)
SF

Film and discussion about the 1971 burglary which exposed massive FBI corruption

On the night of March 8, 1971, eight seemingly ordinary people showed extraordinary courage and carried out one of the most powerful acts of non-violent resistance in American history. In a search for evidence of whether the FBI was spying on Americans in order to suppress dissent, they broke into an FBI office in Media, PA, a sleepy old town southwest of Philadelphia that once was a stop on the Underground Railroad, the network of secret routes slaves traveled from the South to freedom. In the dark, and with the crackling sounds of the first Muhammad Ali-Joe Frazier world championship boxing match filling homes and bars throughout the world that night – and providing cover for this burglary – these amateur burglars stole every file in the office.

Dramatic news at the time, but little remembered now, the Media burglary was the beginning of the end of the mythical FBI the bureau’s director, J. Edgar Hoover, had constructed in the American mind over nearly a half century through the successful efforts of a vast internal public relations office operated with public funds.

Based on Betty Medsger’s book The Burglary, the film 1971 tells the full story of the Media burglary for the first time

J 16, Tuesday, 1:00pm – 3:00pm, Report Back: Caravan to Florida “Free Marissa Alexander (Gray Panther Meeting)

Unitarian Center (Fireside Room)
1187 Franklin
SF

Marissa Alexander, a black Florida woman, was given a 60-year prison term for firing a warning shot to deter an assault on her. The Florida Stand Your Ground defense, which freed the murderer of black youth Trayvon Martin, did not work for Marissa Alexander. The Bay Area women who caravanned across country to Jacksonville Florida, educating and agitating for Justice for Marissa will be at our General Membership meeting, and will bring stories from their journey. Following national outrage, Marissa was eventually released under restrictive conditions.

The mass incarceration of black women is increasing faster even than black men now. In San Francisco black women are arrested at a rate 13 times higher than women of other races, and are stopped for traffic violations 17 times more than white women.

J 18, Thursday, 1:30pm – 5:00pm, San Francisco Rally for Alternatives to Jail Rebuild (Public Hearing)

SF City Hall, Room 250
1 Dr. Carleton B. Goodlett Place
SF

1:30 PM – PRESS CONFERENCE in front of City Hall steps to demand alternatives to New SF Jail!

2:00 PM – MARCH to City Hall Room 250, where Supervisor Jane Kim is holding a public hearing on alternatives to the new jail. – at the regular Public Safety and Neighborhood Services Committee Meeting.

****
5:00 PM – RALLY in front of City Hall to hear community members speak out against new jail and the work that is ALREADY being done in the community! We need people to SHOW UP to this rally so we can show that the people do not want a new jail!

Organizers against the jail are gearing up for a public hearing on “Alternatives to Jail Rebuild,” sponsored by Supervisor Jane Kim and Board President London Breed. Community members and residents will be mobilizing for the hearing to urge elected officials to invest in effective alternatives to the jail, such as expanded community-based mental health programs, drug treatment, and bail reform.

Petition: Take action to stop the criminalization and imprisonment of Black and Brown communities and poor people. A recent report by the Center of Juvenile and Criminal Justice revealed that Black women in SF account for nearly 50% of the city’s arrests of women while they are only 6% of the women’s population in jail. This shocking statistic confirms the racism that we see operating on a daily basis in our work with women and transgender prisoners at SF County Jail. At the same time, we know that 84% of people in SF jail are pre-trial which means they haven’t been sentenced of a crime but simply can’t afford bail. Bail reform would eliminate the perceived need for a new jail.

J 15, Monday, CALL – IN – To Stop The Eviction At 705 Hampshire!

please call ~
Jose Cardenas 415-641-0718

Rachel, Dominique, Anja, and Jeff are facing an (Ellis act) eviction, filed on April 15th. This is Rachel’s second Ellis act eviction.

We are working-class queers who want to stay in our home at 705 Hampshire Street and stay in San Francisco, which we’ve called home for a collective 40 years.

Rachel is a Bay Area native who’s lived in this home for 6 years and runs a women’s shelter. Dominique is a plant biologist who spends her days caring for the plants of the Presidio. Anja is a psychologist in training who works with people who are incarcerated in the San Francisco jails as well as veterans with schizophrenia. Jeff works in the arts, managing space for a Mission dance organization.

We’re asking that community members call our landlord to ask that he drop our eviction and stop trying to intimidate us. Thus far he has made clear to us that he doesn’t want to house unmarried queer people, has refused our request for a disability extension, and he is now monitoring our door with a video camera. This is his second time using a no-fault eviction process on our unit. We are fighting to save our home and stay in our city. We ask that you be firm, but respectful.

J 15, Monday, 11:30am, PRESS Conf: Exposing the systemic cover-up of the execution of Pedie Perez, 24

725 Court Street
Martinez

Press conference to expose the systematic cover-up of the execution of Pedie Perez, 24 year old, unarmed citizen who was murdered by Richmond Police Officer Wallace Jensen September 14, 2015. The father, mother and immediate family of Pedie Perez, along with members of the Oscar Grant Committee, will be present at this press conference.

On Jan 20, 2015, the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s office released a 3-page report completely exonerating Officer Wallace Jensen of any wrongdoing in the shooting of Pedie Perez:

“We conclude that … the officer acted in lawful self- defense, Based on our review, we believe the officer’s actions constitute Justifiable Homicide.”

However, the District Attorney’s report merely repeats the coached testimony that Officer Jensen narrated when he was sequestered at a local hotel with his attorney, Teri Leone of the Police Legal Defense Fund. There were at least three other eye witnesses to the shooting, two of which were interviewed by District Attorney’s office, but their interviews concerning the incident are not recounted or dealt with in any way in the report.

Citizens investigating the incident have subsequently interviewed the eye witnesses and found that the witnesses agreed that Pedie Perez did NOT attack the officer, did NOT try to seize his weapon, and was in no way a reasonable threat to Officer Wallace. Some footage of the eye witnesses recountings of the incident can be seen in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRA9oQmVgb4

MISSION TAKES THE PLANNING COMMISSION
>Save the arts & community businesses on Bryant!
>Any housing should be affordable, not luxury!

Save CELLspace (Inner Mission), community businesses, and housing!

NOT “Another Monster in the Mission” @ 2000 Bryant.

This nearly entire block project would tear down CELLspace (Inner Mission), Tortilla Flats Restaurant, ACT Prop Shop, and more and replace them with mostly luxury housing.

This project requires the Planning Commission grant a Conditional Use permit, which means it MUST show:
a) some benefit to the community through the change,
b) that the project is desirable or necessary to the community.

Luxury market rate housing is NOT a benefit to the community, nor desirable, nor necessary to the majority of Mission residents.

This site is one of the few large parcels left in the Mission that is eligible for Federal Funding for 100% affordable units.

Converting this PDR block into luxury housing, which 60% of SF residents cannot afford, would create a new wealth ghetto that will squeeze working class residents and jobs out of the Mission neighborhood.

Supervisor Jane Kim will hold a public hearing on Alternatives to a Jail Rebuild. This is another opportunity for the community to express what is crystal clear: San Francisco needs to invest in affordable housing, residential treatment programs, outpatient mental health services, health care for all, quality schools, parks and recreation program, not more cages.

Click to Sign petition: Take action to stop the criminalization and imprisonment of Black and Brown communities and poor people. A recent report by the Center of Juvenile and Criminal Justice revealed that Black women in SF account for nearly 50% of the city’s arrests of women while they are only 6% of the women’s population in jail.

At the same time, we know that 84% of people in SF jail are pre-trial which means they haven’t been sentenced of a crime but simply can’t afford bail. Bail reform would eliminate the perceived need for a new jail.

It is scandalous that some Supervisors are proposing to significantly expand the SF police force. Wasting hundreds of millions of dollars into rebuilding a jail will only increase the violence of policing and imprisonment

Thousands of Walmart workers lost their jobs with only a few hours notice when Walmart shut down 5 different stores across the country due to alleged plumbing problems. Walmart is retaliating against some of the strongest and most active OURWalmart activists in the Pico Rivera store that was shut down. These workers were the first to go on strike in 2012 and have continued to strike and protest ever since. Now they are fighting for their jobs and Walmart workers across the country will protest on June 5th at the Walmart shareholders meeting. Come show your support at a solidarity action at the Oakland Walmart store.

ACCJC will host meetings at this hotel on June 3, 4, 5. Legislation is being sent now to the Assembly that will reform ACCJC accreditation practices. This event is to raise awareness and put pressure on key legislators to consider passing this legislation for a fair accreditation process for all community colleges.

The ACCJC treats California’s Community colleges unfairly. This harms thousands of students, faculty and staff. California’s State Superior Court ruled that the ACCJC broke the law when it tried to close City College of San Francisco and the Department of Education criticized the ACCJC for its treatment of our California community colleges. The California Federation of Teachers, the City College faculty union and other supporters from across California have been fighting for fair accreditation reforms. We are holding a protest and press conference outside of the ACCJC’s next meeting. Please join us!

Our streets have been stolen from us, our rights have been stolen from us, our PEOPLE have been stolen from us. It is time to take them back!

It is unconstitutional to repress our right to hold space in the very place that was built on the backs of our ancestors. We’ve been told too many times that we don’t belong here: through the over-policing and criminalization of our communities, through the militarization of the police force, through gentrification, through unlawful curfews and state sanctioned violence against our communities.

The new curfew imposed on our people IS NOT going to stop us from holding space in the streets that BELONG TO US!

Black people and allies, it is time to come together and take back what rightfully belongs to us.

This Friday (1st Friday) we plan to #BreakTheCurfew! We will be meeting at Oscar Grant Plaza and marching…

Please bring: A scarf or handkerchief & Earplugs

Join Black Youth Project and other #BlackLivesMatter protestors and allies to take to the streets again in protest of the Mayor’s and police response and demonstrate for our freedom of expression.

City of Oakland is hosting “The 2015 Oakland Summit” where “Mayor Libby Schaaf and Chief of police Sean Whent will share their vision of Oakland through “Community Policing”

We are strongly opposed to their “vision of Oakland” and seek to abolish the police as well as the state. As an alternative we hope to organize our hoods to build community and push out the police who have always brutalized us.

Either march with us or go #shutitdown from the inside!

The People will gather 9 AM at Lake Merritt Amphitheater VS The Pigs Gather at 9 AM at Laney College 900 Fallon St.

For some reason Libby Schaff thinks she can erase the black and brown radical tradition from Oakland. She thinks she can erase black and brown militants from the streets. LITTLE DID SHE KNOW SHE CAN’T! We will resist and revolt in the day as we always have.

Unions love the ideas of building solar homes with 100 panels,
because this creates JOBS for young people.

Investors love solar because, for the first time in history, every solar homeowner can now make money from their home.
PG&E required to pay solar homes $0.99 kwh. Suddenly your mortgage is paid for by the sun. As is now happening in Germany.

Environmentalist love the idea of building solar homes with 100 panels, because this method has been proven to create all the energy we need to shut down nukes everywhere.

Japan shut down all its nukes, and they will never reopen them! Japan is now building thousands of solar homes,
equaling the amount of energy they once got from nukes.

Global Exchange
2017 Mission St. (nr. 16th Street BART)
SF

David Hartsough knows how to get in the way. He has used his body to block navy ships headed for Vietnam and trains loaded with munitions on their way to El Salvador and Nicaragua. He has crossed borders to meet “the enemy” in East Berlin, Castro’s Cuba, and present-day Iran. He has marched with mothers confronting a violent regime in Guatemala and stood with refugees threatened by death squads in the Philippines.

Hartsough has spent his life experimenting with the power of active nonviolence. His is the story of one man’s effort to live as though we were all brothers and sisters. He inspires, encourages and empowers us to help create a world that is peaceful and just. Hartsough will lead a discussion on what it takes to put your body on the line. Where do you find the courage? How do you deal with fear? How do you deal with arrest and jail? How do your comrades help and hinder? How do you create campaigns? How does a group bent on massive change actually get the job done?

David Hartsough is executive director of Peaceworkers, based in San Francisco, and is cofounder of the Nonviolent Peaceforce. He is a Quaker and member of the San Francisco Friends Meeting. Hartsough has worked actively and internationally for nonviolent social change and peaceful resolution of conflicts since he met Dr. Marin Luther King Jr. in 1956. He is a longtime friend of OccupyForum.

J 9, Tuesday, 2:00pm, Mayor Lee: Stop Airbnb from “Sharing” Our Homes!

SF City Hall – Board of Supervisors Chambers
SF

The Board of Supervisors will be voting on the two competing ordinances about how the city regulates Airbnb and other short term rentals.

We need to be there to support Supervisor Campos’s version, which will actually hold hold companies like Airbnb accountable by having strong enforcement and prevents commercial Airbnbs from permanently turning housing into hotels.

The Mayor’s version will only worsen the problem, as it will make enforcement impossible. Given Ron Conway’s (major Airbnb investor) history of campaign cash given to Mayor Lee, how could we expect anything else?

We need to send a strong message to
City Hall to stop allowing a $20 billion company to “share” our homes!

HOMES NOT HOTELS!

:: SUPPORT the LUXURY MORATORIUM! ::

This temporary moratorium would allow time for a community-based plan for truly affordable housing.

Luxury housing accounts for 93% of the housing being built in the Mission. The SF Planning department has determined that only 13 sites remain in the Mission for the development of affordable housing. The very limited property left in the Mission must be prioritized for affordable housing, not luxury condos unaffordable to the majority of San Franciscans.

UNITE / HERE Local 2
215 Golden Gate Ave. (nr. Civic Center BART)
SF

Join the coming together of two great clean energy movements!

Speakers:

DAVID BRAUN has campaigned throughout the US for an end to fracking, with a great and growing focus on the problem in California.

LINDA SEELEY is a founding member of the San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace, a 40-year-old citizens group that intervened against the Diablo nukes way back in the 1960s

.

HARVEY WASSERMAN helped coin the phrase “No Nukes” in 1973 and was arrested at Diablo in 1984. He writes and speaks worldwide on a safe “Solartopian” future David Braun of CALIFORNIANS AGAINST FRACKING, Linda Seeley and Harvey Wasserman of the movement to SHUT DIABLO CANYON, (California’s last two reactors), will join together to facilitate a union of these two great campaigns.

This unique, pathbreaking collaboration will allow us to join forces and free our state of its addiction to technologies that destroy our water supply and threaten us all.

The movements for No Nukes and an end to fracking have run parallel for many years. They’ve been especially critical in California, where we’re threatened by a Diablo Canyon complex ringed by earthquake faults and a fracking industry that’s destroying our water supply. Citizen activism has closed the reactors at Humboldt, Rancho Seco and San Onofre, and stopped proposed projects at Bakersfield, Bodega and elsewhere. PG&E’s Diablo is two 1200+ megawatt monsters surrounded by earthquake faults, in a tsunami zone, out of compliance with clean water and fire safety regulations, lacking a credible evacuation plan and now completely priced out of the market by clean, cheap, safe and job-producing renewable energy.

Anti-Fracking activists have had big successes in places like San Benito County and Los Angeles in CA, and in many jurisdictions across the nation using Community Rights Ordinances, and other strategies and campaigns.

J 5, Friday, 1:00pm 4pm, TELL THE ACCJC: TREAT OUR COLLEGES FAIRLY! RALLY AND PRESS EVENT

Hilton Oakland Airport Hotel
1 Hegenberger Rd.,
Oakland, CA

ACCJC will host meetings at this hotel on June 3, 4, 5. Legislation is being sent now to the Assembly that will reform ACCJC accreditation practices. This event is to raise awareness and put pressure on key legislators to consider passing this legislation for a fair accreditation process for all community colleges.

The ACCJC treats California’s Community colleges unfairly. This harms thousands of students, faculty and staff. California’s State Superior Court ruled that the ACCJC broke the law when it tried to close City College of San Francisco and the Department of Education criticized the ACCJC for its treatment of our California community colleges. The California Federation of Teachers, the City College faculty union and other supporters from across California have been fighting for fair accreditation reforms. We are holding a protest and press conference outside of the ACCJC’s next meeting. Please join us!

Equally striking, DISTRICT 8 HAS THE SECOND-HIGHEST RATE OF EVICTIONS OF ANY DISTRICT IN SAN FRANCISCO.

The Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club and its allies demand that the leadership in District 8 support housing affordability and anti-eviction measures now pending or introduced before the Board of Supervisors.

WE DEMAND SUPPORT FOR THE SHORT-TERM MORATORIUM ON MARKET RATE CONSTRUCTION IN THE MISSION DISTRICT.

From Oakland, community organizers Linda Grant from the Qilombo community center will talk about how these issues are playing out in Oakland, and Rachel Jackson will talk about how the drug war fuels these racist policies.

Across the Bay Area, rents rise and everyday people find themselves evicted and displaced from their homes. As the tech industry grows in power, many of us find ourselves struggling more to survive and pushed out. At the same time, brutal police forces shoot our friends and neighbors dead in the street with impunity.

More than just a discussion on what’s wrong, the speakers will also talk about how regular people are getting organized in their neighborhoods and fighting back.

Local Pastor facing foreclosure eviction refusing to leave and asking community resist displacement, gentrification

Thursday, May 21, 2015 – In the wake of the May 8th City Hall Shut down by Mission groups, Bayview residents facing immediate displacement, ACCE members, will be demanding to ensure that their neighborhood is included in a moratorium on market rate housing construction until local housing conditions, affordability, and preservation of existing African American community are addressed.

“Enough is enough,” says Pastor Dorn, ACCE member, and foreclosure victim, “we have seen many of our black families leave San Francisco – priced out, pushed out. This is a state of emergency for our community. The question is whether the city going to do something about it or if this is their plan.”
Pastor Yul Dorn was served an eviction in early April after a 7 years legal battle with Chase, now SPS, after Chase misapplied funds to another account, putting his loan in delinquency. His home was built by the Redevelopment agency to create affordable homeownership.
“As a long-time pastor of Emmanuel COGIC church, a chaplain in the Sherriff’s Department and a long-time Bayview resident, I’ve seen the African-American community kept down, locked up and pushed out of San Francisco because of unemployment, foreclosures and evictions. It’s time for Bayview to take a stand.”

BENNY WENDA is a West Papua human rights leader living in political exile in England and he is internationally recognized as the spokesperson for West Papua self-determination. In February, Benny met with Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu of South Africa, who has urged the United Nations to review the discredited 1969 referendum in which the former Dutch colony of Papua was incorporated into Indonesia, and compared the oppression and ongoing human rights abuses with the apartheid of South Africa.

HERMAN WAINGGAI is a former political prisoner and visiting Scholar at George Mason University. He is a prominent leader in West Papua’s self determination struggle.

ILWU Local 10
Henry Schmidt Room
400 North Point St @ Mason
SF

Presentation by Dinga Sikwebu, Education director of NUMSA, (Nationa Union of Metal workers South Africa)

Continuing privatization and deregulation has caused increased impoverishment in the black townships and rural areas. The 2012 massacre of striking mineworkers in Marikana by police of the ANC government was the catalyst for NUMSA to call for a United Front to begin the process of uniting the working class and oppressed and the formation of an independent workers party. NUMSA has also fought the recent bloody attacks against migrant workers in South Africa that has led to many deaths.

Dinga Sikwebu is the NUMSA Director of Education and has been involved in the formation of this United Front. He will be visiting ILWU Local 10 in San Francisco and speaking about his union’s experience and the lessons of their struggles. This is important not only for South African workers but US working people who also face police terror and similar attacks on their wages, jobs and workers rights.

Saturday, May 16

M 16, Saturday, 11:00am – 10:00pm, NO MORE LOCKED DOORS a Conference on Political Prisoners

Qilombo Community Center
2313 San Pablo
Oakland

In commemoration of the horrific bombing of the MOVE Organization by Philadelphia police 30 years ago, on Saturday, people will come together at the radical community center Qilombo for the ‘No More Locked Doors’ conference. During the day, groups will be tabling and there will be workshops. In the evening, there will be a panel of former political prisoners. After the panel, revolutionary hip-hop artists will perform.

The conference will highlight the work of supporting political prisoners in a variety of movements for liberation. All struggles – whether they are against colonialism, capitalism, the exploitation of the earth or of animals, the State, prisons, and any and all other repressive apparatus – have a need to practice long-term support for those incarcerated. These practices of solidarity need to be maintained and generalized.

Tabling by political prisoner and prisoner support organizations will start at 11am and go until 6pm.

A series of workshops, on prisoner support strategy and history, will happen around Qilombo from noon until 6 pm. The schedule of these workshops will be posted soon at nomorelockeddoors.org.

At 7pm, a panel of former political prisoners will speak. We are overjoyed to announce a panel consisting of: Richard Brown (of the SF8), Linda Evans (May 19th Communist Organization), Sundiata Tate (SQ6) and Rita “Bo” Brown (George Jackson Brigade). Full bios of the speakers are available at https://nomorelockeddoors.org/former-political-prisoner-panel/.

Kenneth Harding Plaza
3rd Street (between Palou & Quesada
S.F

Malcolm X Day – San Francisco is part of a national effort to declare May 19th, the birthday of Malcolm X / El Hajj Malik El Shabazz, an official holiday.

The event is dedicated to raising awareness of, and seeking solutions for, current challenges faced by San Francisco residents
– gentrification, unemployment, lack of local hiring, poverty, racist discrimination and police brutality
– in the context of the ideology and principles of Malcolm X.

May 19th – National Malcolm X Day –
seeks to restore his true ideology and principles,
and to challenge the willfully wrong “violent white hate” message propagated by the white power structure
that purposely excludes him from the American education system and mainstream culture.

Performers include local rappers and poets Selassie, Talea Monet, Jabari Shaw and Ras Ceylon.
Community restaurants will serve free food.

Organizers: Bilal Mafundi Ali; Sylvia Rorem; La Mesha Irizarry and Jeremy Miller of The Idriss Stelley Foundation.

M 18, Monday, 1:00pm, Don’t Let Airbnb Steal Our Homes! The Fight Goes to Land Use Committee – Rally

SF City Hall (Polk St. steps)
Land Use Committee Meeting – Rm 263
SF

Don’t let Airbnb write our laws for us! Let the people decide!

Airbnb is trying to control the Board of Supervisors and silence the people’s voices. We cannot let this happen!!

The Campos ordinance will be heard there, which would hold Airbnb accountable by fining them for listing illegal rentals and requiring them to provide data to the city. We need you there to support full enforcement, transparency and accountability for the loss of our rental housing during this housing crisis!

The Mayor’s ordinance will also be heard. This is poison pill legislation that again fails to regulate airbnb in any way.

We need you to let the board know we won’t be fooled again!

Tell the Board of Supervisors:

-Stop our neighborhoods from becoming hotels and protect existing housing by limiting short term rentals to 60 days

-Hold Airbnb accountable and charge them fines for allowing illegal listings

-Give neighbors whose lives are hurt by Airbnb the right to go to court to enforce city laws.

May 15 – May 31

May 15 – May 31, HANDS UP DONT SHOOT GRADUATION – Commencement day show of resistance towards police brutality and militarization

During San Francisco State University’s commencement ceremonies Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano/a de Aztlan (MECHA) and the Black Student Union (BSU) invite graduating students to participate in an act of solidarity with the people of Ferguson, MO and all those that have been affected by police violence.

We urge every graduate to walk with their hands up to the podium when receiving their diploma to demonstrate discontent with police murders of unarmed people.

FACTS ABOUT POLICE VIOLENCE
– In this year alone, there have been 293 cases of individuals killed by police, more than 14 times of that of Canada in the whole year of 2014.
– In the year 2014, it is estimated that the police killed more than 1,000 people (most of whom are people of color and the mentally disabled).
– In states like Utah police shootings are the second leading cause of homicide, out numbering gang and drug related homicides.
– In the overwhelming majority of cases cops accused of homicides face no repercussions.

These numbers are unacceptable and it’s vital that during this crucial moment in American history, we show our support to the groups and people that are on the front lines of the fight against racism in the police force and the continued militarization of local police.

In addition, the fight extends beyond our borders with young people from Mexico to Palestine being disproportionately affected by violence due to racist and militarized police states.

LET’S SHOW THE WORLD THAT THE STUDENTS OF SAN FRANCISCO STATE STAND AGAINST RACIST KILLINGS AND POLICE IMPUNITY!

***WE INVITE DIFFERENT COLLEGES TO JOIN US***

Power to the people! El pueblo unido jamas sera vencido!
