On September 13 the Coalition to Close the Concentration Camps--Bay Area held a large day of action with multiple stops, starting at Palantir headquarters on Hamilton Ave. Rabbi Reverend Michael Lerner, of Tikkun Magazine and well-known for his East Bay and nationwide activism, was one of a number of Jewish #neveragain speakers.

After the rally at at 100 Hamilton Ave. the protesters marched to the nearby home of CEO Alex Karp. Karp is Jewish and at that location the group resounded with more chants in Hebrew, Spanish, and English. The loud group broadcast their message through speakers and microphones. Karp's home is on a lovely treelined street and made for an excellent pinnacle to the day's events. When neighbors stepped out of their homes to find out what was going on, their reaction was mixed. Some were supportive and already knew of the scandal that is Palantir--the company supplies specialized software to ICE.

This was followed by a march to Palo Alto City Hall, another rally, and later in the evening the projection of messages to Palantir with lighted messages on two of their buildings including #NoTechforICE.
