The City of San Leandro has declared December 18th, 2014 to be “Mike Katz-Lacabe day“. We agree that Mike Katz-Lacabe – not only an outgoing School Board member, but a champion of civil liberties in San Leandro – deserves to be honored. And what better way to do it than with a Free Speech Fest!
Please join us for an afternoon/evening of, well, speech. All speech. Any speech. Your speech. (Can’t come? See below)
Come and tell us:
- what you think
- what you want
- what you hope
- what you are thankful for
- what you are fearful
- a story
- a poem
- a song
- a haiku
- an anecdote
- an experience
- an opinion
- an idea
- a recipe
- a helpful hint
- your analysis of the current political situation and what can we do to reach the liberty, equality and justice we all deserve.
Tell us with words, with music, with signs.
Tell me, tell a new found friend, tell the police (you know they’ll come by) and/or tell our camera so others can see it later.
But speak. Speak here, in San Leandro, while we still have that right. They have taken so many other rights away from us, let’s exercise those we have left while we still have them.
This last-minute Free Speech Fest will take place on Thursday, Dec. 18th – Mike Katz-Lacabe’s day – between 3:30 PM and 8:30 PM. Stop by whenever you can, we can’t promise there will be more than one person there, but that’s all you need to have a conversation. We know you are busy – yes, there are lots of protests, rallies and meetings to attend, but we really hope to see you here.
As a location, we have decided in the area around the beautiful Holiday tree in the patio between City Hall and the Police Department here in San Leandro. You can’t miss it, it’s really tall.
Bring your friends, your children, your parents, your neighbors, your students. Grab your coats and scarfs and Guy Fawkes masks. Come!
