On August 1, 2020 a rally was held at the Oakland Coliseum to protest the privatization of the Port of Oakland and sale of the Coliseum to the John Fisher, the owner of the A's and the GAP corporation.

Speakers also talked about the role of politicians who do the bidding of the Fisher family and other billionaires.

A caravan was held to the GAP headquarters in San Francisco to also oppose Doris Fisher who is John Fisher's mother and her effort to destroy the public school Malcom X Academy in Bayview Hunters Point.

Fisher's controlled KIPP school is suing the San Francisco Unified School District SFUSD to force the district to hand over more rooms of the Malcom X Academy to the privately run KIPP school which is co-located right next to the Malcom X Academy.

Speakers at the GAP event connected the role of the billionaires in privatizing public land destroying Black and Brown communities in Oakland and San Francisco.

The GAP corporation was also involved the exploitation of Bangladesh women garment workers and a fire which killed over 1,000 garment workers who were locked in the warehouse which made GAP and Wal-Mart garments.

The action was sponsored by the Committee To Stop Police Terrorism and End Systemic Racism.
