Niebyl-Proctor Marxist Library
6501 Telegraph Ave, Oakland
Alameda County Green Sunday Will Address Key Community Issues
February 6, 2014 (Oakland, CA) — Green Party former Mayoral candidate Don Macleay will present a moderated discussion Sunday February 9, 5 pm at the Niebyl-Proctor Marxist Library, 6501 Telegraph Ave in Oakland, to lay out a proposed platform for Oakland City Government where he calls for getting corporate money out of elections, a police commission,
and taxing the port, among other things.
Don Macleay will answer these questions, followed by a moderated discussion:
● What do Oakland residents need out of their local government?
● What is the status of the government we have now?
● What policies could progressives pursue for the common good?
● What should our candidates call for in this next election?
The Green Party of Alameda County prioritizes policies and initiatives that support community health and vibrancy, rather than ones that militarize and criminalize. “We need Oakland city
policies that think twice before sending someone to the vicious circle of our criminal justice system,” says Donald Macleay, who was a Green Party candidate for Mayor of Oakland in 2010
and Green Party Candidate for City Council District 1 in 2012. “We should be welcoming people coming back into our community when they come home from our failed corrections systems.”
The Green Party of Alameda County, part of the East Bay Region of the Green Party of California, has over 10,000 registered members who live in the Oakland / Berkeley / Emeryville / Alameda area. We have been active for over 15 years, hold monthly meetings and “Green Sundays” on the second Sunday evening of each month at Niebyl-Proctor Library in Oakland, and host conferences, public events, and gatherings for up to 1000 people in the Bay Area.
Green Sundays are a series of free programs and discussions sponsored by the Green Party of Alameda County. They are held on the 2nd Sunday of each month. The monthly business meeting of the County Council of the Green Party of Alameda County follows at 6:45 p.m. Council meetings are always open to anyone who is interested.
