Sunday, Feb. 2, 2:30 PM-5:30 PM

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

Its a good time to take a fresh look at what has worked in times of trouble, and share what we have learned about successful campaigning that gives hope for the future.  George Lakey.
These times call for new and creative tactics in order to make changes to the status quo.
Explore: What makes nonviolent direct action campaigns relevant now? What about polarization? How do we build stronger campaigns? Can campaigns build a movement of movements that can deliver really big changes?
Expect: experiential activities, small group work, a big picture, affirmation of your own power.
Activist, sociologist and author George Lakey has been on the forefront of social change for five decades, leading social change workshops on five continents and heading projects on local, national and international levels. His latest book, How We Win, details how we can achieve needed social change.
Kazu Haga is the founder of the East Point Peace Academy, as well as a core member of the Ahimsa Collective and a trainer in Kingian Nonviolence, a philosophy developed out of teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His book, Healing Resistance, will be released January 14th.

Sponsored by the Social Justice Committee of BFUU, and the Social and Environmental Action Committee of the Berkeley Society of Friends.

Peter Jan Honigsberg: A Place Outside the Law: Forgotten Voices From Guantanamo
Hillside Club, 2286 Cedar Street, Berkeley
On January 11th, 2002, the first planeload of twenty detainees from Afghanistan arrived at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba. Eventually 780 Muslim men were held at Guantanamo, many for ten years or longer, and nearly all were never charged with a crimea violation of Americas foundational belief in due process and the rule of law. Forty men are still imprisoned at Guantanamo today; twenty-six of them are considered forever prisoners who will likely die at Guantanamo, having never been charged, tried, or convicted of any wrongdoing.

"Kids Caught in the Crackdown," a documentary with Berkeley Professor Andres Cediel
Revolution Books, 2444 Durant Ave. Berkeley
As the detention of migrant children has climbed to record-breaking levels under Trump, FRONTLINE and The Associated Press investigated what's going on inside federally-funded shelters - and the lasting impact on children held in U.S. custody. The nearly 70,000 migrant children who were held in government custody this year - up 42 percent in fiscal year 2019 from 2018 - spent more time in shelters and away from their families than in prior years.
Andrés Cediel is a documentary filmmaker and Professor of Visual Journalism. He produced "Rape in the Fields" and was a writer and producer of "Rape on the Night Shift" which brought to light rampant sexual assault of immigrant women in the agricultural and janitorial industries.

Brown Bag Speakers Forum: Communicating Across Lines of Politi
Public · Hosted by Albany Library and Beyond Contempt
Albany Library 1247 Marin Ave, Albany, California 94706
In this polarized era, how do liberals and progressives talk with Trump supporters and other conservatives without deepening the divide? Erica Etelson, author of Beyond Contempt: How Liberals Can Communicate Across the Great Divide, will talk about her efforts to "speak the truth but not to punish" -- to express her anger, fear and grief without disdaining or shaming her political adversaries. A lifelong social and environmental justice activist and former human rights attorney, Etelson shows how progressives can stay true to themselves and true to the cause while at the same time honoring the humanity of those who stand on the other side of the great divide.

THE PROSECUTION OF JULIAN ASSANGE: THE WAR ON JOURNALISM WHAT IS AT STAKE?
WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange has been indicted on 17 counts of Espionage and 1 count of conspiracy to commit computer crime for publishing the governments documents exposing U.S. war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan and torture in the Guantanamo Bay prison. The indictment of Assange is recognized by many free-speech groups as the most important press freedom case of our time. What is the U.S. governments prosecution of Assange really about? Why do Americans need to be concerned about his US extradition case? In this public lecture, Nozomi Hayase, Liberation Psychologist, discusses how WikiLeaks 2010 publication of the Collateral Murder video shed light on a hidden history of the United States. She explores how Assange, through his work with WikiLeaks, let people see Americas betrayal of its own ideals, and provided a mechanism for them to redeem an unaccounted past.
Nozomi Hayase, Ph.D, author of the book WikiLeaks, the Global Fourth Estate: History Is Happening is a liberation psychologist whose writing and activism is dedicated to the empowerment of ordinary people. Through her journalistic work, she applies psychological lenses to social and political issues and engages the public in a search for truth, justice and fairness. She has been covering issues of free speech and transparency, including the vital role of whistleblowers and cryptocurrencies in creating a more democratic society. With the conviction that the foundation of investigative journalism is compassionate curiosity, she strives to bring an inquiry that fosters dialogue and encourages honest witnessing of history.

Details
This Presidents Day, we will gather outside Mark Zuckerberg's house near Dolores Park to let him know that we won't be quiet in the face of his company undermining our democracy.
We are not sure what billionaires brunch on, but lets give him some food for thought and a piece of our minds. It will be fun. We will be loud. And we will bring plenty of democracy bagels for everybody who shows up with a sign or a noisemaker.
Why? Zuckerbergs San Francisco Bay Area technology company -- Facebook -- refuses to take responsibility for lies, hate, and disinformation spread on its platform. This irresponsibility is alarming -- especially in light of the 2020 elections.
Facebook sells ads to U.S. politicians but imposes zero restrictions on lies and false claims and is happy to profit from micro-targeted advertising thats being used to misinform, manipulate and incite hatred among vulnerable voters.
Facebook should recognize it has created a monster and stop politicians from being able to buy and lie in their campaign advertising in 2020. But dont expect Facebook to let go of so much lucrative attention and influence without a fight. We are ready to fight and to wake the Zuck up! Facebook should:
Refuse political ads that lie, refuse to sell political ad microtargeting, and deny service to anyone seeking to disrupt the 2020 election.
Please join us on President's Day to "Wake the ZUCK up". Dont let disinformation on Facebook ZUCK UP our next election.

02/20/2020 La Peña Cultural Center invites you to Oscar López Rivera Speaking Tour  Lessons from Puerto Rico, the Diaspora, and Internationally

Join us for an evening of tribute, music and conversation with Puerto Rican patriot and visionary, Oscar López Rivera. This event is part of a national U.S. speaking tour titled Oscar López RiveraTwo Years Later: Resistance and Resilience.

Two years after his release as a political prisoner for 36 years, Oscar López Rivera is returning to the Bay Area to share his current work in Puerto Rico post hurricanes Irma and Maria, and against a backdrop of a series of earthquakes that have stricken the island over the last few weeks.

Since his release in 2017, he founded the Oscar López Rivera Foundation, Libertá, through which he has been leading efforts to strengthen grassroots community organizing, demanding the auditing and cancelation of the islands debt and advocating for the Puerto Ricos sovereignty.

The ONE PERCENT against BERNIE

It was to be expected. With the success of Bernie Sanderss campaign, the 1 percent has gotten scared, and the long knives are showing themselves in both the corporate media and the Democratic Party establishment.

SPEAKERS:

Chris Cook, Author and investigative journalist, will analyze media reporting and the Democratic Party.

Alan Minsky, Executive Director of Progressive Democrats of America, will focus on Bernies fight against the 1 percent.

Amar Shergill, Chair of the California Democratic Progressive Caucus, will explore how the CA Democratic Party will try to undercut Bernie in the Primary.

David Talbot, Author and journalist, will explain corporate medias efforts to derail Bernie during past years and in the current Primary.

E J DIONNE: CODE RED: How Progressives & Moderates Can Unite to Save Our Country
Hillside Club, 2286 Cedar Street, Berkeley
New York Times bestselling author and Washington Post columnist E. J. Dionne sounds the alarm in Code Red, calling for an alliance between progressives and moderates to seize the moment and restore hope to Americas future for the 2020 presidential election.
Will progressives and moderates feud while America burns? Or will they take advantage of the greatest opportunity since the New Deal Era to strengthen American democracy, foster social justice, and turn back the threats of the Trump Era?
E.J. DIONNE, JR., is a columnist for The Washington Post, Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution, visiting professor at Harvard University, and professor at Georgetown University. He is a co-author of the recent New York Times bestseller One Nation After Trump and author of Why the Right Went Wrong.

RICHARD WOLFF: Understanding Socialism
First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley, 2407 Dana Way, Berkeley
Understanding Socialism tackles the taboos and unveils the often hidden histories of socialism, but most importantly it offers a way forward: a socialism built on democracy in the workplace. A blend of history, analysis and opinion, Understanding Socialism is an honest and approachable text that knocks down false narratives, confronts failures, and offers a path to a new socialism based on workplace democracy.
Understanding Socialism not only explains what socialism is and has meant to various proponents, it also looks at the past transition from feudalism to capitalism as a model to help us visualize the next transition out of capitalism. Understanding Socialism explores how socialist theory was used and applied to shape the histories of countries like Russia and China principally, and many other countries in smaller but important ways. It analyzes the successes and defeats of those countries, the worlds reactions to them (anti-socialism and fascism), and how all of those factors offer important lessons for the building of a 21st century socialism.
