March/April 2015:  

Don’t forget March 8 IWWD

Below events Announced in Minutes after March 4, 2015 PPA meeting:

March 5, 9am Court Support for Ramsey Orta
Ramsay Orta , the man who filmed Eric Garner’s murder, is facing still more trumped up charges and needs our support. The gun charge didn’t stick, so now they claim he and his family are dealing drugs. The hearing will be at the Staten Island Courthouse, just steps from the ferry terminal. He will also have a court date March 12.

March 5, 9:30am Court Support for Laundry Workers Center
The Laundry Workers Center has a court date at the Federal Courthouse in Manhattan at 40 Centre St, in room 443. They need our suuport. The owners of Liberato restaurant, where the LWC has been supporting workers in their campaign to be paid minimum wage, have sued the LWC under the RICO act. Astonishingly, a judge seems to be interested in hearing this frivolous lawsuit. If the judge rules in favor of Liberato, it would create a precedent that could affect labor organizing across the country. If you have been involved in previous actions relating to Liberato, it is important to double check with Rebecca ( before attending. She will be able to explain why it is necessary to check with her first. If you have not been to previous actions there is no need to do that- just show up.

March 5, 7pm Jerome/Cromwell Townhall
There will be a Townhall meeting to discuss the potential rezoning of Jerome Avenue in the Bronx at the Latino Pastoral Action Center. Address is 14 West 170th Street

March 6, 12pm Staten Island Remembers Selma

Occu-Evolve will hold a press conference and rally at the Staten Island Borough Hall, right across the street from the ferry terminal. James Lane, the Green Party candidate  for The U.S. House of Representatives in Staten Island will also be there. He is running against Daniel Donavon, the DA responsible for the non-indictment in the Eric Garner case.

March 7, 12pm From Selma to Staten Island

Occu-Evolve will hold a rally to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday in Selma at the Staten Island Borough Hall, right across the street from the ferry terminal. Please note that this is a change: there will be a rally but no march.

March 8, 12pm International Women’s Day March

The event will begin at Herald Square (34th St and Broadway) at noon. The march itself will begin at 1pm, and there will be a celebration with performers and speakers at the International Action Center at 2pm.

March 8, 2pm Shut Down Pro Cop Rally. Disarm NYPD and Copwatch are organizing a counter protest at a pro cop rally at City Hall. They are asking representatives from as many groups as possible to attend, and to bring signs. There will be lots of media present, so it’s important to have a big crowd.

March 9, 5:30pm Moral Mondays Meeting
There will be a meeting of faith based and social justice activists at 60 Wall Street to discuss methods to end broken windows policing in NYC. Hosted by Occu-Evolve. 
March 10, May 1st Coalition Organizing Meeting

April 14City-wide shutdown/day of action (12pm, Union Square)
