We are resisting a development that would cut down 400+ trees including a 600 year old Oak tree, put a fancy ass restaurant along with 60 other buildings on top of the most beautiful park in Oakland. Then they would cage a bunch of beautiful animals on it gentrifying the working class neighborhood. Please join us for a weekend of fun and Direct Action to stop the Oakland Zoo!

Defend Knowland Park! Direct Action and Call-in against Chain Link Fence and Supply Inc.

https://www.facebook.com/events/953130058065883/

Chain Link Fencing and Supply Inc. (a non-union company) has started to construct a mile-long perimeter fence around the proposed development. We can find no approved building permit for this construction so this fence may be "illegal". No permit is posted on-site and there has been no response about the fencing from the City building permit staff. Therefore, it is within our "legal" right to take direct action and stop fencing from going up .

Please Join us, Monday - August 17th at Knowland Park to demand their permit to work or if you cannot make it call and email their office repeatedly to jam their lines and respectfully demand information regarding their Work Permit for fencing construction at Knowland Park.

The park was deeded to be protected forever for privatization and not it's our duty to uphold that deed and Defend Knowland Park

Monday - August 17th - 11 AM - Knowland Park entrance at the end of Edgemont way near Edgemont and Malcolm ave. - Oakland, CA

If you can offer a ride or need a ride from Coliseum Bart or the 57 Bus, Oakland , Berkeley or SF please sign up here: http://www.groupcarpool.com/t/gb9ejt
