|Gather at Oscar Grant Plaza (14th & Broadway, Oakland) for a funeral procession (march) through the streets to an (undisclosed) gravesite location|
Gather for a funeral for capitalism on Leap Day: eulogy, procession through the streets with a New Orleans-style brass band, burial – dancing on the grave to follow
Funeral attire suggested.
Use your extra day to bid farewell to a system that brings us meaningless jobs, billionaires, shopping malls, structural poverty, and ecological collapse. May it roast in hell or rot in peace. Let's resurrect a world of cooperation, justice, pleasure and beauty from its moldy bones. Don't mourn – Organize!
Sponsored by Crafts and Insurrection Convergence & Leap Day Action Night
Given the threat of rain, the funeral directors will determine whether or not to postpone the funeral and/or move it indoors at 4 pm on February 29 - please check this link for any rain related update:
