STOP TRUMP'S CHILD CONCENTRATION CAMPS!
580 freeway overpass at Ardley Ave
overpass near: 1615 MacArthur Blvd
Oakland, CA 94602
HOSTS(S): Carolyn N.
Children denied soap and toothbrushes, crowded into unsafe conditions. Separated from their families, subject to cruel treatment that leads to lasting traumas. And some dying in custodyor dying with parents as they cross the Rio Grande.
We've seen the images and heard the stories coming out of child detention centers. Horrifically, these conditions aren't an accident. They are the byproduct of an intentional strategy by the Trump administration to terrorize immigrant communities and criminalize immigrationfrom imprisoning children in inhumane conditions to threatening widespread raids to break up families to covering up reports of immigrants dying in U.S. custody and abuses by ICE and CBP agents.
This Tuesday, July 2, while members of Congress are home for the Fourth of July holiday, we will gather at their local offices and make our voices heard.

27th Annual Laborfest 2019
LaborFest this year celebrates the 85th anniversary of the San Francisco General Strike. The 1934 General Strike transformed San Francisco and the Bay Area into a strong union center in the United States. It also allowed hundreds of thousands of workers to join unions because of the collective power of the working people.
Today, for the first time in decades, some union leaders, including the CWA AFA president Sarah Nelson, are calling for another general strike against the attacks on Federal workers and the entire working class.

SF Screening of 'Kangaroo"! plus Vegan Meal
Hosted by Dave
From San Francisco Vegan Events
SAN FRANCISCO SCREENING OF "KANGAROO," WEDS. JULY 3 AT 6 PM
Opera Plaza Community Room
601 Van Ness Ave · San Francisco, CA
On Weds. July 3 at 6 pm, the powerful Australian movie "Kangaroo" will be screened at Opera Plaza.
This groundbreaking film reveals the truth surrounding Australias love-hate relationship with its beloved icon. The kangaroo image is proudly used by top companies, sports teams and as tourist souvenirs, yet when they hop across the vast continent some consider them to be pests to be shot and sold for profit. KANGAROO unpacks a national paradigm where the relationship with kangaroos is examined.

The Chambermaid
Opens July 5 " Roxie Theater

Set entirely in this alienating environment, with extended scenes taking place in the guest rooms, hallways, and cleaning facilities, this minimalist yet sumptuous movie brings to the fore Eves hopes, dreams, and desires.

THE ART OF SELF-DEFENSE Advance Screening
With a perfect balance of off-kilter comedy and twisty thriller, THE ART OF SELF DEFENSE is what would happen if Charlie Kaufman wrote FIGHT CLUB. Or if Yorgos Lanthimos directed KARATE KID. And with a special advance screening happening at our Brooklyn location, we wanted to share the fun with as many people as possible.
Plus, you'll be one of the first to see this razor-sharp black comedy that stars Jesse Eisenberg as a timid bookkeeper who joins a strip mall dojo and unknowingly enters into an absurdly hyper-masculine world full of mind games, dark secrets, and heavy metal.

Screening of Rigged: The Voter Suppression Playbook
Niles Discovery Church, 36600 Niles Blvd, Fremont
Hosted by Second Saturday Documentary Series
What would happen if political operatives tried to subvert the sacred American principle of one person, one vote? What if they hatched and pursued that plan for years before anyone noticed what they were doing?
Rigged: The Voter Suppression Playbook examines how this happened during the chaotic 2016 election. The film identifies and unpacks a shrewd ten-part strategy developed by Republicans to suppress votes that would be cast against them  why they did it and how they did it.
"Rigged" shows the tactics that have been used: the closure or early closing of polling places in Democratic districts, the purging of voter rolls to eliminate groups of people based on questionable or frankly spurious grounds, voting machines which conveniently malfunction, strict and arbitrary voter i.d. laws, and that old standby---gerrymandering.
Our democracy is still in peril. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) states in the film, I fear for our younger people. I fear they will not have the kind of democracy I experienced.

07/13/2019 SPECIAL FIRST-HAND REPORT ON THE HISTORIC MASSIVE STRIKE WAVE IN THE
MAQUILADORAS (BORDER SWEATSHOP FACTORIES) OF MATAMOROS, MEXICO, BY
STRIKE LEADER SUSANA PRIETO TERRAZAS
Labor Conference Against Outsourcing and Privatizations
SATURDAY JULY 13, 2019
10 am to 4 pm

Hall of ILWU Local 34
801 - 2nd St. (next to Giants' Ballpark)
SAN FRANCISCO
In Mexico  under the NAFTA "free trade" agreement signed in 1994 by the United States, Canada and Mexico  the 1,500-plus maquiladora
factories along the U.S. border corridor have been used to outsource jobs from the United States to slave-labor wages and working conditions.
NAFTA has also promoted the transfer of U.S. jobs to the agricultural valleys in Baja California, where 70,000 farm workers and their families
 picking fruits and vegetables for Driscoll's, among other U.S.
corporations  try to survive on $7 dollars a day.
The mass strike wave  the largest in recent Mexican history, involving 36,000 workers  in the border-factory city of Matamoros
(state of Tamaulipas, across from Brownsville, Texas) has been an important example in recent years of the fightback by the Mexican
working class against this "free trade" corporate agenda.
07/16/2019 7-16-19 Berkeley
We are working to restrict the Berkeley roll out of 5G (5th Generation close proximity "small" cell wireless antennas) for similar health concerns, and for many other reasons as well: privacy, security, weather prediction interference, as well as increased cost to individuals and to the City, slower speed, less access, and unreliability compared to superior alternatives of copper wire or fiber optics. Over twenty California cities have passed related measures. Meanwhile, three installations in Berkeley were already approved by Public Works, one in front of the Elmwood rehab center across from Berkeley Bowl and one in font of an apartment building on College at Parker. Susan Wengraf, Mayor Jesse Arreguin, Kate Harrison, and Ben Bartlett have a 5G ordinance on the City Council agenda on Tues July 16.
Council meetings are now at 1231 Addison St. at Bonar beginning at 6:00 PM.

Press Freedom, Whistleblowers and the Case of Assange, Manning and Carmody
Journalists and whistleblowers are under attack, from Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning to freelance journalist Bryan Carmody in San Francisco. When the president of the United States calls journalists scum and encourages his supporters to verbally and physically threaten journalists, the right of all journalists to do their work is threatened.
The raid by the San Francisco police of Byran Carmodys home and office in flagrant violation of the California Shield law is another example that press freedom is a local, national, and international issue.
This forum will look at the issue of who is a journalist and the right of journalists to do their work. Although Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has been a member of the Australian MEEAs Media section since 2007, and this is the trade union that represents Australia media workers, the media, however, continue to argue that he is not a journalist and does not deserve to be protected.
The use of a 1917 US espionage law to target Assange now opens the way to charge all journalists and newspapers that use material from whistleblowers. This is a basic challenge to our freedom and right to information.

Mickey Huff, Project Censored, Steve Zelter, KPFA WorkWeek Radio, Ann Garrison, Black Agenda KPFA

"Treasure Island"
Treasure Island - is it the mythical isle where untold wealth awaits marauding pirates, or the freezing cold, artificial island in the middle of San Francisco Bay awaiting cut-throat developers? Or is it both? That's the question for Jill Hawkins when an old sea-dog of a developer drops anchor in her office at City Hall, and drops a mystery in her lap.

Chris Sauter, Lori Grace, and others

Sunrise Center and TrustVote.org will be co-presenting on the upcoming risks to election integrity for the 2020 election and what we can do to reduce these risks and increase the likelihood of an honest election. Election integrity experts, including Bob Fitrakis, John Brakey, Jim Soper, Chris Sauter, Lori Grace, and others will be meeting to discuss what we can do to ensure a more honest election as part of a live-streamed panel.
Members of the public who are present at Sunrise Center will have first choice in asking questions of the panel. Some of you who plan to devote much of your time seeking to enhance the integrity of our next presidential election are invited to come afterwards to a working conference on this topic that will follow the panel discussion. Details of how this weekend will pan out will follow soon. Stay tuned!
