The Safe Ground Stake Down is a week-long campout (OCCUPY!) from May 1 (Wednesday) to May 8 at 12th and C, a vacant lot in downtown Sacramento. It is an ARTS EVENT. We are scheduling art projects, music, spoken word, poetry, and teach-ins/talk-abouts from 3 pm to 8 pm every day.
If you have talents or interest, this is an opportunity to bring your message or art or music to the grass roots. Of course donations too are appreciated. Or come and hang out. We will have snacks.
Each day has a different theme — Saturday is Home and Health, for example, and will focus on the movement against hunger…as well as against homelessness and poverty. Local congregations are serving dinner to the residents each night. So it will be a good place to find community.

May 1, Wednesday. Labor & Organizing -
May 2, Thursday. Youth & Vision – WIND
May 3, Friday. Human & Civil Rights – SHOC
May 4, Saturday. Home & Health – SHA

Based on a true story. A film that triumphs truth over evil.
Featuring Nicole Beharie, Alfre Woodard, Charles S. Dutton, and Michael O’Keefe.
“Nicole Beharie delivers a stunning performance.” -Roger Ebert
Tells the story of an ordinary person caught up in extraordinary circumstances. A hard working, honest woman came home one evening after her shift as a waitress. A few hours later, she was arrested for drug dealing and more, despite never being involved in drugs in her life. This story could happen to any one of us. Innocence means very little. The movie dramatizes the truth behind “plea bargain deals,” the incentivization program for district attorney’s offices, and more.

Five years into the crisis and not a single banker has been prosecuted. Over 333,000 of us signed a petition demanding that the President and the Department of Justice prosecute the bankers. Join ACCE, Home Defenders League, Occupy Sacramento, and others to deliver those signatures to the Department at Justice, and tell President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder that nobody is above the law, no matter how “big” they are.
