This is the first in a series of counterausterity marches and events planned
for this summer, and designed to begin assembling an anticapitalist force
capable of combating the current age of budget cuts and economic violence.
This first event – a roving street party ending in a guerrilla
film-screening– coincides with First Friday and Art Murmur because we want
to draw attention to the fact that, while the gentrification of certain
areas of Oakland continues via mechanisms like First Friday, the majority of
Oakland residents face a new round of punishing budgets cuts, staggering
levels of unemployment and an increasingly militarized police force. This is
no accident. Just as money cut from schools, public transportation and
libraries on a national level reappears as bank bailouts and increased
credit for the rich, the wealth squeezed out of certain parts of Oakland
appears in other parts of the city, as art galleries and expensive
restaurants, new condominiums and police weapons.
So come take the streets on Friday night to show our resistance and power.
We want this to be a fun and disruptive but relatively low-risk event. Our
intent is to build up momentum, energy and intensity over the course of the
