Press Release, 5/31/18

Protesters Denounce Counterfeit Spirituality and Religious Hypocrisy of Franklin Graham!

Refuse Fascism and Rev. Amos Brown of the Third Baptist Church of San Francisco will protest racist and fascist Franklin Graham!

Franklin Grahams Decision America will hit Berkeley Friday evening. The tour, billed as a religious revival, is in truth sponsorship of Donald Trumps program of white supremacy, misogyny and xenophobia.

Trump would not be president without support from Christian fundamentalists like Graham, and Trump is carrying out the agenda of white supremacy, hatred of Islam, and assault on LGBTQ people that Graham has been about all along.

Rev. Amos Brown said on Tuesday at a rally at SF City Hall protesting the DAs failure to indict SF police in the murders of Mario Woods and Luis Gongora: The enemy doesnt always come in a blue suit with a badge on. The enemy comes from fake preachers and leaders who claim to love Jesus& come next month, when Franklin Graham, Billy Grahams son, comes to Berkeley, talking about holding up Jesus, we have to go and tell him in this Bay Area in this town, you have to do more than talk the talk, you have to walk the walk, you have to stand with Black people when their friends and loved ones are murdered, are shot down like dogs, like animals, like cows and pigs&

Refuse Fascism says People all over the world are calling on us to STOP this nightmare& We need to organize now for the time when we can launch massive, sustained, non-violent protests in the streets and towns across the country  protests that continue day after day and dont stop, creating the kind of political situation in which the demand that the Trump/Pence regime be removed from power is met.
06/02/2018 Please join us for the third annual "Wear Orange" march across the Golden Gate Bridge to mark National Gun Violence Awareness Day on June 2. "Wear Orange" was started by a group of Chicago teenagers who lost a friend to gun violence. Orange is the color that hunters wear to stay safe.

We will depart from the SF Golden Gate Bridge plaza at 11:30 am on June 2. We will walk across to Marin and meet up with Marin marchers at 12:30 at Marin Vista Point, then head back to SF.

To rsvp, text ORANGE to 644-33. And, don't forget to wear orange!

This event is sponsored by Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, Everytown for Gun Safety, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, and many more.
06/14/2018 Screening of The New Rulers of the World

Thursday, June 14, 7:00 PM

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

The New Rulers Of The World (2001) is a documentary about how the US, UK, Dutch Neo-Colonial Corporations plotted General Suhartos removal in 1966 of the first elected President of Indonesia, Sukarno, who had ruled from 1959 - 1966. It analyzes the corporate globalization economy and reveals that the divisions between the rich and poor have never been greater. The film turns the spotlight on the new rulers of the world, the great multinational corporations running governments that back them via the IMF, the World Bank, and the World Trade Organization. They control developing resource-rich nations to impose austerity poverty on most of the people and to privatize the natural resources that rightly should be their commonwealth. The West, explains Pilger, has increased its stranglehold on poor countries by using the might of these powerful financial institutions to control their economies and keep them in debt.
John Richard Pilger is an Australian journalist and a legendary award-winning documentary film maker. Pilger has been mainly based in the United Kingdom since 1962 where he wrote for The New Statesman. Pilger is a strong critic of American, Australian, and British foreign policies, which he considers to be driven by an imperialist corporate globalization agenda.

06/23/2018 The Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy: Reassessing in Light of Suppressed Evidence

Saturday, June 23, 7:00 PM

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

 For it is not enough to allow dissent. We must demand it. For there is much to dissent from.
Robert F. Kennedy, Berkeley, California, October 22, 1966.

On June 4, 1968, Robert F. Kennedy won the Democratic presidential primary, making him a favorite to become the next president of the United States. In the early morning hours following his victory he was fatally shot, just 2 months after Martin Luther King Jr. had been slain. Both of their deaths devastated the countrys hopes for a more enlightened future.

Please join us for a video program and discussion presenting suppressed evidence in the Robert F. Kennedy murder case, which invalidates the verdict against Sirhan Sirhan, who remains unjustly imprisoned for the crime fifty years later.

Presented by the Northern California 911 Truth Alliance  Co-sponsored by the BFUU Social Justice Committee

06/24/2018 Join Refuse Fascism Bay Area to celebrate Pride and demand that this nightmare must end, the Trump/Pence regime must go! Invite ALL your friends and family to join in.

*Sign up online ASAP to march in the Resistance Contingent: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sf-pride-resistance-contingent-tickets-46669322199
*Arrive between 9am-10am (march starts 10:30) on Sunday 6/24.

The Supreme Court has sided with a Christian fascist businessman in Colorado who refused services to a gay couple, effectively enshrining discrimination against LGBT people. In the 7-2 decision, two liberal justices, while voicing disagreements, ultimately sided in favor of the supposedly unfairly treated bigot and delivered a result that utterly delighted Christian fascists  particularly the rabidly anti-LGBT Family Research Council.¹ Would you accept a business right to hang whites only or Christians only signs in their shops, as protected freedom of religion or expression of philosophical objection? Does this not pave the way for something like an expanded system of segregation, against anyone who is not white or Christian? This is an illegitimate ruling, and we do not and should not have to accept this.

The Trump/Pence Regime wants us degraded and vilified, they want to strip away recently-won civil rights and liberties, and ram LGBTQ people back into the closet& all while they demonize Muslims, round up and terrorize immigrants, deny womens reproductive freedom, and threaten the world with nuclear annihilation and environmental catastrophe. We must instead courageously stand up in defiance of all this, not just for ourselves and our communities but for all of humanity and the planet itself. Boldly declaring in both word and deed  NO! In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America!

07/12/2018 Albatross Film & DIY Opportunities 

Thursday, July 12, 6:00 PM

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

Join our Plastic-free July Event for an evening of connecting to nature and hands-on ways to lessen our impact!
Albatross explores the beauty and tragedy in the cycles of birth, life, and death of creatures that live in the middle of the ocean on Midway Island, thousands of miles away from the nearest continent. Director Chris Jordan describes the motivations of the Midway Project as a drive to convey the intensely vivid sensual, emotional, and spiritual experience of being with [the birds] on the island. The intimacy of the birds nurturing, poetic and cyclical lives is starkly contrasted by the shocking images portraying the devastation of the effects of an unhealthy ocean.
Refreshments & DIY Opportunities: Come between 6-7 pm and learn how to make simple products you use every day to eliminate plastics in your life. Bring an earth-friendly, package-free snack to share if you like! (Parents are advised that this film is not recommended for young children)

This event is sponsored by: Transition Berkeley, the Ecology Center and BFUU Social Justice Committee
