GA at the Omni today because of possibility of skin melting

95% chance of rain. 100% chance of GA being at the OMNI. See you there at 3:00 PM. The Occupy Oakland General Assembly meets every Sunday at 3 PM at Oscar Grant Plaza amphitheater at 14th Street & Broadway near the steps of City Hall.  If for some reason the amphitheater is being used otherwise and/or OGP itself is inaccessible, we will meet at Kaiser Park, right next to the statues, on 19th St. between San Pablo and Telegraph.  If it is raining (as in RAINING, not just misting) at 3:00 PM we … Continued

March Against Fascist Violence – June 2

The Boston May Day Coalition has voted to endorse the upcoming ‘March Against Fascist Violence’ action organized for Saturday, June 2nd beginning at 10:30 AM. Please check the following link for more information:

This march will be a counter-mobilization in opposition to an ultra-rightist rally that will be held at the Massachusetts Statehouse. These rightist are supporters of the generalized assault conducted by the federal government against youth, working people, and especially undocumented migrants who are fleeing violence, devastation, and extreme poverty, often directly resulting from US policy toward their home countries. We voted to join the march and avoid any physical engagement with the rightists. Our main goal is to get our message out about the nature of the general assault coming down from the government and the need to build a fight back movement against it. We expect the action to be a noisy affair and BMDC has taken no position on the ensuing verbal exchanges that will take place. We expect that the police will be on hand to protect the rightists and don’t expect any physical confrontation.
