Reclaim MLK - No Sprouts In Oakland: Stop Gentrification of Local Food Economy
Date Friday January 15
Time 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Location Details
Sprouts "Farmers Market"
3035 Broadway
Oakland, CA
Event Type Protest
Organizer/AuthorOccupy the Farm
Come protest the new Sprouts "Farmers Market," a racist, sexist, corporate, big box grocery store chain that has just moved into Oakland. Sprouts is NOT a farmers' market, but in fact imports food from around the world and doesn't treat their workers well. Stand against the gentrification of Oakland, in solidarity with Occupy the Farm and the Gill Tract Community Farm, and in support of local food economies and the real farmers markets and local markets owned and operated by the people of Oakland.


Day of actions at Sprouts:

7am — Meditation

11am — Picket and Fliering

1pm — Gather at 1pm to rally. Meditation and flyering will be happening at 7am until 1pm.
