Global Climate March

The world needs you, now. Come to Oakland tomorrow and show up for our future.  TOMORROW’s NCCM march is expected to be the largest Global Climate March in the United States, but only with your and your friends’ help.

Look for the DSA banner at 10:30 near the corner of Lakeside and 14th, and at Frank Ogawa/Oscar Grant Plaza at 1:00. We’ll be handing out Bernie Literature – bring water and a bag.

BREAKING: Due to the heightened security situation, the French government will not allow the Global Climate March planned in Paris.

Bernie!! Feel The BERN

Greetings fellow Berners!

Help spread the word this weekend.  We are working on going to two different farmer’s markets this Saturday, September 26. The first is El Cerrito Farmers Market, meeting at 9:30am at the edge of Market, look for the sign. The second is across from the Grand Lake Theater, at 10am, look for the Bernie table.

We have two tables, and we have some signs and will find more.
We have literature about Bernie both in English and in Spanish.
We are also looking forward to tabling at the community colleges, notably Berkeley CC first.
Hope you can join us.
This is an exciting time! Bernie is doing really well. He is going to need a lot of folks working for him and supporting him through this process and then the next four years!!
In Solidarity and Thanks

Monthly Meeting

Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to remind you all that we are meeting this Saturday, April 12. And Wilma, one of our members will be celebrating the beginning of her 90th red year!
As well, Susan Chacin and Shereen Rahman willbe talking about the feminist socialist experience and the challenges faced. It should be a great discussion.
As well there are lots of issues coming up: single-payer, focused taxes for those who have been able to take the cream off of the system for their benefit, and ways of helping to make them share it.
Meeting will be at Niebyl-Proctor Library, 6501 Telegraph Avenue, just North of Alcatraz in Oakland. Meeting goes from 10am -12pm.
Schmoozing beings at 9:45am.
