Uncover links of the military presence, prison expansion, labor and immigrant exploitation embedded in the Bay Area landscape through a popular education bike tour. Join Critical Resistance in discussions about connections between sites of incarceration, immigration and militarization to contemporary human history.

OAKLAND, CA- Embedded in the serene geography between San Francisco and Marin lies a historical landscape of environmental, labor, and immigrant exploitation that has buttressed “America’s Arsenal of Democracy.” Critical Resistance, a national organization dedicated to analyzing and strategizing resistance to the complex issues concerning the prison industrial complex invites bicycle enthusiasts, activists and Bay Area history buffs alike on May 5th to partake in a popular education bicycle tour and learn more about Critical Resistance. The tour analyzes connections between pristine appearances of local sites and the breadth of impact of the military and prison industrial complexes on Bay Area communities.

Speakers on the tour will include a member of All Of Us Or None, a national organization of prisoners, former prisoners and allies combating discrimination faced as the result of felony convictions. And a member of the Intertribal Friendship House, an organization promoting and maintaining modern and traditional American Indian life.
