What:  Peace Is Patriotic annual protest
Where:  Golden Gate national Cemetery in San Bruno,
  at the main gate on Sneath Lane just off 280.
When: Mon, May 30, 10 am - noon

Show your patriotism this Memorial Day on Mon. May 30th from 10 am to
noon...at the Peace is Patriotic annual protest at the military Golden
Gate national Cemetery in San Bruno....at the main gate on Sneath Lane
just off 280.  If driving from SF just come south on 280 and take the
Sneath lane exit...can't miss the 160,000 graves.

San Bruno BART is on Sneath just 4 blocks east of the Main cemetery
Gate.  If that is too far for you to walk, consider just standing with
signs/flowers/banners on the corner of Sneath Lane and El Camino Real
next to the cemetery.  We will be honoring the life and work of Father
Daniel Berrigan who died this month in NY.  He and brother Phillip
were life long anti-war activist and ended up in jail a number of
times....once for burning boxes of draft records....another time for
walking right on to an airforce base and hammering on a bomber.  Call

What: Tasers for SFPD?  "Killing Them Safely" theatrical premiere
Where:  Roxie Theater, 3117 16th St, SF (near Mission)
When:  Tues, May 31, 6:30 pm

Killing Them Safely, an explosive 2015 documentary film on the
controversy over police use of TASERS.

Hundreds of deaths.  Zero oversight.  In the early 2000s Tasers were
marketed to law enforcement agencies as a safe alternative to
handguns.  They were supposed to curb the use of deadly force - so why
have over 500 people died from Taser-related injuries since?

Following the screening discussion with:
    NICK BERARDINI, Filmmaker
    JEFF ADACHI, San Francisco Public Defender

About the film and its implications for the upcoming decision of the
San Francisco Police Commission to possibly start outfitting San
Francisco Police Department officers with Tasers.

and social justice.
