WELCOME TO CLASS WARFARE:
How We Fight on the Housing Front
A Foreclosure Defense Group Orientation and Training

Foreclosures, evictions, gentrification, massive displacement... These are facets not of a "crisis" but of a targeted, ceaseless attack, an attack of one class and its institutions upon another with communities of color taking the brunt of the assault.

The Occupy Oakland Foreclosure Defense Group forwards an anti-capitalist perspective built on community organizing, self defense and our experience and successes.

This Friday, January 25th, we offer an orientation on the local political terrain, on the forces at play in this current attack and an introduction to our vision, our work and how we get down.

We especially encourage to attend those many folks that have put in work around our recent fights and those who are interested in becoming more involved in these immediate and tangible struggles.


Discussions led by:

* Darwin Bond-Graham, noted sociologist and journalist who has published extensively on the politcal economy of Oakland. (You might have seen him in the streets around Occupy Oakland as well!)
* Anthony Panarese, longtime local community organizer and notorious pain in the ass of the local establishment, now a staffer with the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment.
* core organizers with the Foreclosure Defense Group

Hope to see you there!
