Some events are from ocprogressiveevents.info.strong>

2015:

Decolonial Teach-In and Gathering in LA: date TBD. Call to Action. A call to communities in resistance in particular and those who dream of a better world in general. We understand to get there we need vision, strategy, organization and to build alliances. We are putting out this call to those communities building autonomy, and revolution. In the coming weeks we will begin to fundraise for communities and collectives wishing to make it out from different regions, as well as to plan and organize for the gathering and teach-in. This event is not made for organizations to promote themselves but for communities fighting to build and strategize with each other. <joaquincienfuegos@gmail.com>.

March:

Vietnam Full Disclosure: Call for Teach-ins on the American War in Vietnam. This month is the 50th anniversary of major US escalation in Vietnam. As the Pentagon pursues its program to commemorate the “valor” of US troops in Vietnam which “upheld the highest traditions of our Armed Forces” as proclaimed by President Obama, we think it is crucial for Americans & especially young people to be reminded of the realities of that brutal & unnecessary war. Also, Take The Pledge campaign on their website. It simply says “I’m with Full Disclosure. I oppose the Pentagon campaign to rewrite the history of the Vietnam war.”
