HERE/THERE, on the Berkeley/Oakland Border across from Sweet Adeline Bakery 3350 Adeline St, Berkeley, CA 94703, USA

Tuesday October 24

4:30 PM – 4:30 AM

You’re invited to an

EVICTION RESISTANCE PARTY

The evening of Tuesday, Oct. 24

through Wednesday morning,

as long as necessary.

The camping community HERE/THERE has been practicing consensus government and responsible urban camping at its present location for more than nine months. Multiple members of City Council have called us “a model community”. So why has “someone” in the city government told BART to get rid of us?

We were only given three days notice: they will seize our property and force us onto the street some time on Tuesday. This eviction order is illegal. Help us resist it by coming out to shout at the pigs and enjoying a potluck Eviction Resistance Party. Tuesday evening through Wednesday morning, as long as necessary. Also, you can contact Lateefah Simon, the BART board director for our district, through https://www.lateefahforbart.com/contact and Rebecca Saltzman, chair of the BART Board of Directors whose district represents many people in Berkeley and Oakland:

COPS GO HOME

Bring a camera. This is also a good time to donate food, water, and any kind of survival equipment.

If they do manage to evict us, we’re going straight to City Hall, where we’re going to raise a hell of a ruckus. In that event, we will need help with transport and temporary storage of property. So maybe bring a pickup or a van, just in case?

Kaye “Nana” Griffin, an Indybay co-founder, passed on in early August. Nana was involved in the Bay Area activism scene for decades, including queer liberation, housing and many other local struggles. Nana also carried one of the first Indybay press passes. Her memorial service is on Saturday, October 21 at 2 PM (doors open at 1:30 PM) at the Center for Sex and Culture, 1349 Mission St. in San Francisco.

John Gilmore shared an Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) advertisement while recalling, “Kaye got around to many Bay Area subcultures. Here’s one of her appearances in the digital rights subculture. This full page ad appeared in 2003 in Rolling Stone magazine, featuring Kaye in the middle of the lineup. […] She was involved in so many things that I suspect that none of us knew the full extent of her activities and activism.”

Keith McHenry also provided a short reflection, “Kaye spent many hours volunteering with San Francisco Food Not Bombs and reported on the arrests and court cases posting on Indybay. She participated in nearly all the huge protests with her pet rat on her shoulder and I remember her insightful comments about a wide range of issues. Her vision of what is wrong with the political and economic system and ideas of where to take action to move our world forwards was spot on.”

We will resume our long standing weekly sharing at the 16th/Mission BART Plaza on Thursday, October 5, 2017 at 6 PM, ending a three week hiatus.

We have shared food on Thursdays at this location for many years.  For a few months, we switched to Wednesdays.  Now we are back on Thursdays.

We always need volunteers and invite anyone to eat with us.  Please spread the word.
