Date Friday July 12
Time 7:30 AM - 10:30 AM
Event Type Protest
Organizer/AuthorThe East Oakland Collective
Location Details
E. 8th Street and Alameda Ave.
Oakland, CA
Notorious local slumlord and Trump supporter Gene Gorelik is rallying support to "save Home Depot" and bully the curbside community at E.8th Street and Alameda Ave. (adjacent to Home Depot Oakland) on Friday, July 12, 8 AM. He has started a gofundme campaign (https://www.gofundme.com/f/operation-save-home-depot), FB event page (https://www.facebook.com/events/2084439161860295/) and is running ads against the curbside community.

We are asking the community to stand together to protect our curbside communities against hate, xenophobia and anti-homeless behavior.

We stand against the new Oakland xenophobia that is against Black & Brown people. We stand against putting a multi-million dollar corporation over the well-being of unhoused Oakland residents. Instead of working to mitigate and improve any issues between Home Depot and the curbside community, Mayor Schaaf, Councilmember Noel Gallo and supporters like Gene Gorelik, want to evict the curbside community with no where to go, providing no adequate housing.

SHOW UP IN SUPPORT, SOLIDARITY, UNITY:
** Show up to rally, chant and counter-protest this Friday, July 12. Show up starting at 7:30-8 AM. Gene’s protest starts at 8 AM.
** Park/meet inside private parking lot on E.8th Street and Alameda Ave (curbside community surrounds the lot). Look for driveway entrance on Alameda Ave. near corner of E.8th St.
