Support working people But deeds of past examples are not good. For example when the Oakland Occupy did the port closure and after 3 shifts the SIEU and Oakland Police attacked our tree-sit in the early morning hours and then recently SIEU and the SFPD attacked Gezi Gardens which is an Ohlone Burial site. This attack on an Indigenous Burial site will not be tolerated and expected an apology from SIEU and a promise they will not participate in any more Indigenous Burial sites. Finally we are asking SEIU for a donations for materials lost as they attacked the Tree People (an Indigenous Direct Action).
