Free the Land! Free the People! FREE LEONARD PELTIER! 6:30p, 11000 Wilshire Blvd. LA 90024
– Speakers, Songs, Prayers, Drum – Relatives, come out to kick off Native American Heritage Month in a good way. To our allies and non-Native folks, this is your opportunity to show up and support an important issue facing Native Country… the need for compassionate release of Native Elder Leonard Peltier, who should be FREE! We are sending our community voice to President Biden, to grant him clemency! Mr. Peltier, a member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians, is serving two life sentences after being arrested under questionable circumstances for the 1975 murders of two FBI agents on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. His wrongful conviction on June 26, 1975 followed a trial marked by procedural errors and a lack of evidence. Mr. Peltier has maintained his innocence since his arrest, and has been unjustly held as a political prisoner by the U.S. government for over 46 years, making him one of the world’s longest incarcerated political prisoners. He is the longest held Native American political prisoner in the world. This LA rally is being held in support of and in solidarity with Leonard Peltier’s Walk To Justice from FL to DC. https://www.facebook.com/events/653566176388572/

Magdalena Zernicka-Goetz, Bren Professor of Biology and Biological Engineering, Division of Biology and Biological Engineering, free, Public Event. Human and animal embryos are built from three types of stem cells that are established by the sixth day after fertilization and before the embryo implants into the womb. These three stem cell types can also be grown indefinitely in cell culture. In her lecture, Zernicka-Goetz will describe how she and her research group have been able to assemble embryo models not from eggs and sperm but from these stem cell types, and what those models are teaching us about human development. This lecture will be presented in a hybrid format, allowing for both virtual viewers and in-person attendees. No advance registration is required for either format. The lecture can be viewed via live stream on caltech.edu/watson or on Caltech’s YouTube channel. Virtual viewers can submit questions for the lecturer through the YouTube chat feed.

Do We Even Need a Los Angeles City Council? Zocalo Public Square, 7-8p. AZ State U California Center at the Herald Examiner, 1111 S. Broadway, LA 90015, free. Los Angeles City Council member Mitch Englander went to prison for taking gifts from casino interests. Jose Huizar turned his city council office into a criminal enterprise, an indictment contends. Mark Ridley-Thomas faces charges of taking bribes from USC. And three more councilmembers conspired with a top labor official to influence redistricting —spewing racism and hatred on tape and disgracing themselves. Often, such scandals seem like the only times Angelenos hear about their councilmembers. Is the L.A. City Council—overshadowed as it is by the mayor, five county supervisors, and powerful state and national politicians—still worth the trouble and embarrassment? Can the body be saved by reforms, or by making it bigger? Or should L.A. replace its council altogether and turn instead to innovative methods of government decision-making—from lottery-selected citizens’ panels to the online environments used to govern cities from Madrid to Montevideo? Public Access Democracy director Leonora Camner, California 100 executive director Karthick Ramakrishnan, LA City councilmember Nithya Raman, and Weingart Foundation president and CEO Miguel Santana visit Zócalo to discuss where things went wrong, and imagine new futures for L.A.’s city council. Zócalo and KCRW invite our in-person audience to continue the conversation with our speakers and each other at a post-event reception with complimentary drinks and small bites. Zócalo Public Square values audience safety. During events at ASU California Center, only clear bags (maximum size 12” x 6” x 12”) and small clutches (maximum size 8 ½” x 5 ½”) are permitted in the venue. All bags are subject to search.

Nov 25 – Fri Buy Nothing Day
As “Black Friday” shopping madness became embedded in US culture, Canadian artist Ted Dave found the drastic shift from a day meant for gratitude to a day meant for chaos and greed to be quite off-putting. As a result, he established National Buy Nothing Day in 1992 to counteract the madness of the nation’s materialistic behavior. Today, people practice National Buy Nothing Day in an effort to mediate the waste and auxiliary spending that can often occur in the weeks surrounding Thanksgiving and Christmas. Go on a spending detox by enjoying the day at home or in nature, or perhaps you can take action to support Amazon and other workers.. https://nationaltoday.com/buy-nothing-day/
