Saturday June 17th, a little after 7-10pm
On November 24th, 2014, Oakland, CA exploded in revolt against the non-indictment of Darren Wilson for the murder of Mike Brown in Ferguson.
This rebellion spread across the Bay Area and lasted for nearly three weeks straight.
Join a participant in the rebellion for an intimate look at what went down, the broader social context in which it occurred, and an update on the current situation in the Bay Area as of June 2015.
There will be a short movie and discussion, as well as free literature (including a number of pamphlets and flyers distributed during the rebellion.)
This is a free event, but donations are encouraged. 100% of donations go to the Minnehaha Free Space.
The event won’t start exactly at 7pm, so people have time to come from the TransDykeQueerMarch 2015: #blackqueerlivesmatter, #nativequeerlivesmatter, #translivesmatter
