3030B 16th Street, (near Mission St, across from bart plaza) SF
Since the last gathering, many more terrible massacres and devastating forms of oppression have been committed, without a strong enough public uproar. Yet, also, small but powerful victories have been taken, (like in Oaxaca), that can be strengthened by our understanding, organizing and support. There will be much to discuss, plan and share this Friday evening, Station 40, 3030B 16th St. near Mission.
As always, we invite those who are either deeply interested or already participating in communities that support the Other Campaign, and/ or similar forms of organizing in defense of human dignity, anti-authority, rebellion and freedom, and for organizing from below and to the left.
This Friday, we will hopefully have updates from the Colectiva Zapatista Ramona, who’s members are currently in an aid mission to Mexico, from members of the Caracol de la Mission, who are coordinating a large benefit for Oaxaca, and from Defensa del Vote, who soon will have a benefit in support of not surrendering to anything less than a complete recount in Mexico. An invitation has also been extended to Arab Beyond and others to speak about the struggles in Lebanon, Palestine and beyond, and why the lack of local public outrage + indignation to the atrocities that are being committed. Also, a very emotional and personal report from friends who are currently in an aid and information gathering delegation in Beirut, Lebanon.
Also locally, we will learn from the recent campaigns from Bayview Hunter's Point + Mission Anti-Displacement Coalitions against racist land grabs from wealthy developers. Also Bay Area branch members of the IWW, (revolutionary industrial international union), will present their actions and future plans for helping organize immigrant workers, and why they present a radical alternative to the typical middle class sell-out labor organizing. Also, preparations are underway for a large immigrant presence at the Sept 4th Labor Day nation-wide, mass marches. And of course, we invite you to bring to the table anything you are interested in and would like to present.
In the past dinners, the charlas start by everyone given ample enough time to share what they have been participating or interested in, and then it's a bit of an chaotic open forum where we ask questions, really get to learn from one another, make connections and hopefully make plan for the future.
So if you agree and support this attempt to build local radical community, from the bottom and left, than it can only get continue if you actually come, return and bring friends/ comrades, and help spread this invitation:}
With your help, preparing dinner begins at 6pm, dinner soon after,(~7:30 - 8 pm) Charla goes on till however long you wish to stay, and if you're interested in presenting any music for the dinner, or film for after the charla, please feel free to do so.
Bringing any food and/ or drink to share is greatly appreciated. (Thanx to FNB, we will already have plenty dessert and bread ;}
