April 8, Tuesday 7:00pm – 9:00 pm “All On The Same Ocean” Hong Kong Dock Workers Visit San Francisco
Striking Hong Kong Dockworkers Speak on Globalization, Subcontracting and International Solidarity
Unite-Here Local 2
209 Golden Gate Ave., San Francisco, CA 94102
In the spring of 2013, a 40 day strike by 500 dockworkers at the Hong Kong Port aroused massive support in Hong Kong society and throughout the world. The target was one of the world’s richest and most powerful men – oligarch Li Kai-shing. The Hong Kong dockworkers, suffering years of frozen wages and inhumane conditions, divided by a subcontracting system meant to deflect labor unity, with no legal access to collective bargaining, in heart of the global capital’s leading city… struggled and prevailed, giving us a clear view of the power of workers against not merely one boss, but a system that is generating inequality everywhere it spreads. Their tenacity, militancy and ultimate victory provides a moment of inspiration for citizens and workers universally.
Stephan Chan is a rank & file dockworker, employed as a sub-contracted checker in the Kwai Tung terminal. He helped to organize the Union of Hong Kong Dockers (UHKD) in 2005 and served as its first chairperson. He remains one of the core leaders of the union and played a vital role during the April 2013 strike.
Loy Wong is an organizing secretary of Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions (HKCTU), with more than 12 years of experience in the trade union. He leads the organizing and support work for unions in the transportation and logistics sector, including the Union of Hong Kong Dockworkers.
The San Francisco Event is endorsed by: Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions, ILWU Local 10, ILWU Local 34, SF Labor Council, SF Progressive Workers Alliance, Chinese Progressive Association, SF Jobs with Justice, Inlandboatmen’s Union SF Region-ILWU, UNITE HERE Local 2, Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance (APALA), Labor Notes, Empire-Logistics/Supply Chain Group

April 11, Friday, 5:00 pm “Keep Our Teachers: March to End the Displacement of San Francisco’s Educators!”
Meet at Corner of Dolores & 20th Streets
March Ends at 151 Duboce
Join Eviction Free San Francisco and allied housing rights activists to march to KEEP OUR TEACHERS! We will march to the homes of 4 teachers who are currently facing eviction in the Mission/ Dolores area and demand that their evictions, and the evictions of all of our educators, be rescinded.
Meet at the corner of 20th and Dolores St. and march to the homes of teachers in the area (see below), ending at 151 Duboce St.
Where we are marching and who we are marching for:
-812 Guerrero St.- Claudia and Evan, two local teachers who are being Ellis Act Evicted.
-Mission High School- to show solidarity for teachers and students who are facing eviction.
-55 Dolores St.- Sarah, a teacher, and her friend Mary, who will turn 98 are being Ellis Act Evicted by Urban Green
-49 Guerrero- Mervyn, is also being evicted by Urban Green
-151 Duboce St.- Benito, a special ed teacher, is being Ellis Act Evicted.
As more and more of our city gets bought up by greedy speculators and sold for a profit, we lose the important educators who are so fundamental in keeping our community functional and whole. San Francisco is no longer affordable for a teacher’s income and those who live here, face eviction. What will happen when we lose our teachers? Lets fight to for our city!
This is a family friendly march, we encourage students, teachers and all those effected by the lose of teachers to come show your solidarity and support! See schedule /timeline below
April 11, Friday 7:00pm and A 12 Saturday 4:00pm – Emergency Actions to Stop the War on Women
Women’s Building (Auditorium)
3543 18th Street
April 11th 7:00pm – Spotlight on the Abortion Rights Emergency: Hold programs on/in campuses, communities, religious congregations, and theaters bringing alive: women’s abortion stories – before Roe and today, the struggles of those who risk their lives to provide abortions, and the full anti-woman program driving this war.
Saturday – 4:00pm
Meet at Washington Square Park
April 12th 4:00pm – Bloody Coat-Hanger Street Actions: Assemble at institutions behind this war (anti-abortion churches, Pregnancy Crisis Centers, etc.). People wearing all white will raise coat hangers dripping in blood, representing the women who die when abortion is unavailable.
Others in all black will hold pictures, names and statistics of the women who have died already.
Everyone will wear shackles. After one hour of silent protest, people will break the shackles and recite a pledge to resist and call on others to join in mass resistance to defeat this war.
When abortion is illegal or unavailable, women die. An estimated 5,000+ women died each year in the U.S. before abortion was legal and 47,000 die worldwide each year currently from unsafe and illegal abortions. Further, when abortion is not available, millions more women have their lives foreclosed as they are forced to bear children against their will and all women are devalued and subjugated.
Yet today, abortion rights in the U.S. hang by a thread.
In the last three years, 203 restrictions on abortion rights have been passed. Last year Texas had over forty clinics that provided abortions, by September there will be only six left. Five states have only one abortion clinic. On March 3rd, an abortion clinic in Montana was closed indefinitely after severe vandalism. Everywhere, a tremendous stigma hangs over women who get abortions.
The fight over abortion has never been about babies. It has always been about control over women. Forcing women to have children against their will is a form of enslavement.

April 15, Tuesday, 5:30 pm – A Tax Day For Justice: Call-In/Fax-in to Dirty Dozen’s Kaushik Dattani, Followed by Evening Picket
2:00 pm- Leafleting
3232 – 22nd Street
San Francisco, CA 94110
5:00 pm Closing Picket
3222 – 22nd Street
Join Eviction Free San Francisco and the tenants’ justice movement in protest of one of San Francisco’s biggest serial evictors!
Kaushik “Kenny” Dattani’s greedy ways have earned him the notoriety of becoming of part of the Anti-Eviction Mapping Projects Dirty Dozen: http://antievictionmap.squarespace.com/dirty-dozen/. In his career as a landlord, he has ruthlessly evicted 25 of his units, and now he is after the home of long-term Mission residents Tom and Patricia!
Let’s help keep our friends in their home by turning up the heat on Dattani. How are we going to do this? Hint: part of Dattani’s services is accounting. We thought that Tax Day, April 15, would be a great opportunity to encourage this landlord to do the right thing by backing off the eviction of Tom and Patricia.
Call, E-mail, or FAX Dattani the following:
“”Hi, my name is______ and I am asking you today, Tax Day, to cease the eviction of your tenants at 3305 20th Street. I am aware that Tom and Patricia have been loyal, responsible, rent paying tenants, and that Patricia is living off of disability income and may not be easily rehoused. This is not right. Please, have a heart, and consider the people that will be hurt by this eviction if it continues to happen.”
