04/19/2018 Be a part of building the CARF Coalition and Rapid Response Network!

Communities Against Racism & Fascism (CARF) is seeking to build a direct-action Rapid Response Network with broad based coalitions to assemble the community to protest far-right, fascist, and neo-Nazi appearances with mass, direct counter-demonstrations. The Rapid Response Network is a text and email communication system that alerts members of upcoming actions so they can turn out for the protest and organize others to do the same.

Come to this community meeting if you are interested in doing something about the fascist threats against our communities by joining the CARF Coalition and/or the Rapid Response Network, or if you would like to learn more.

About CARF:

We believe in a working-class program and leadership to protect and enhance civil rights and liberties in our communities. We are united in opposition to violent ultra-right movements and aim to build large and disciplined counter-demonstrations against neo-Nazis and fascist forces when and where they gather. We do this by protesting, out-shouting, out-organizing, and outnumbering them WITHOUT instigating physical fights, but being prepared for self-defense if necessary and staffed with trained security to keep everyone safe.
04/21/2018 Roy Zimmerman Performs ReZist

Saturday, Apr.21, 7:30 PM

Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists Hall
1924 Cedar (@Bonita), Berkeley www.bfuu.org

ReZist is 90 minutes of Roy Zimmermans original songs, a funny and forceful affirmation of Peace and Social Justice. Sometimes I think satire is the most hopeful and heartfelt form of expression, because in calling out the world's absurdities and laughing in their face, I'm affirming the real possibility for change. Roys songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime, and his videos have garnered tens of millions of views. He has recorded for Warner/Reprise Records. He's shared stages with Bill Maher, Ellen DeGeneres, Holly Near, Robin Williams, Arlo Guthrie, John Oliver, Kate Clinton and George Carlin, and tours the country constantly with his wife and co-writer Melanie Harby.
