“The Annual Milk-Moscone Memorial March will take place this Saturday, November 27, 2010. The vigil will take place on the anniversary of the assassination of Harvey Milk and George Moscone, starting at 6pm. The vigil will last approximatly 1 hour and the march will begin at the Castro Muni station (Castro & Market Streets) at 6:45 PM.

The March commemorates the assassination of Supervisor Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone and is an opportunity for the community to mourn the loss of two of our city’s most progressive elected officials, reflect on their visions for San Francisco, and learn more about their lives through testimony from family and friends of Harvey. The event has been a community tradition annually since the assassinations. The speakers will be:

Cleve Jones, Founder, Names Project, and friend of Harvey

Harry Britt, former Supervisor, and friend of Harvey

David Campos, SF Supervisor

Carol Migden, former State Senator

Tom Ammiano, State Assembly member

The Milk Memorial Education Committee was founded in 2004 to plan for and install the bust of Harvey in San Francisco City Hall. The bust was installed in May 2008. The Committee is now engaged in educational programs at the SF Unifed School district and City College of San Francisco, on behalf of LGBTQ students.

More than 100 souls showed up for yesterday’s remembrance of dead workers at FoxConn factories in China.

It went a little something like this.

Steve Jobs Pwned: June 17th Vigil at Apple Store in Remembrance of Dead Workers

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

I’ll tell you, I don’t what the deal is with the recent suicides at the factories of  Foxconn it’s not a sweatshopTechnology Group down China Way. But maybe I’ll find out more from the Chinese Progressive Association at the San Francisco Union Square Apple Store Vigil on June 17, 2010 at 5:45 PM 

Don’t expect Apple workers in San Francisco to applaud the arrival of “life-sized Deathpads” come Thursday:

All the deets:

“San Francisco Community Vigil in Solidarity with Foxconn Workers. Apple Computer’s “DeathPad” Targeted for Inhumane Production Demands

San Francisco, CA – Chinese Progressive Association (CPA) is organizing a San Francisco vigil for Chinese workers at Foxconn, the Apple manufacturer where there has been a surge of worker deaths. In the last few months, 13 young migrant workers have attempted suicide, 10 workers have died while 3 remain in critical condition. A worker also died of extreme exhaustion after working a 34 hour shift.  Apple computer’s “Deathpad” has brought huge profits to Apple at the expense of workers lives.

Chinese Progressive Association calls on Apple and Foxconn to take responsibility for the workers and to find real solutions to the extreme pressure and deplorable working conditions in the factory. We urge Apple to work with Foxconn and ensure that workers are being treated fairly.

What: SF Vigil in Remembrance of Worker Deaths at Foxconn

When: Thursday, June 17th, 2010

Time: 5:45 pm – 7:00 pm

Where: Apple Store in Union Square, 1 Stockton Street, San Francisco CA”

San Francisco Marks 20th Anniversary of Tiananmen Massacre with Candlelight Vigil

Friday, June 5th, 2009

This was the scene last night in Chinatown, where people turned out with their candles to mark the 20th Anniversary of Tiananmen Square Massacre.

Tiananmen Massacre Anniversary: All Quiet at the Chinese Consulate in San Francisco

Thursday, June 4th, 2009

There doesn’t appear to be a whole lot going on to mark the 20th anniversary of  the Tiananmen Square Massacre (aka June 4 Incident, aka “6-4“) around San Francisco today so far.

This is the scene at the sometimes-busy Chinese consulate in the Western Addition – barricades are ready to be used if needed.

Appears as if there’ll be a candlelight vigil in Chinatown’s Portsmouth Square at the Goddess of Democracy statue around 7:30 or 8:00 PM tonight.

Candlelight vigil 4th June at 8p at Portsmouth Sq, Chinatown, San Francisco re: Tiananmen Square”

Here she is, the GoD, being ignored last year by Mayor Gavin Newsom in all the excitement leading up to the international Olympic Torch Relay fiasco of 2008. (Don’t look forward to any more of those international relays – they’re cancelled forever by the International Olympic Committee due to actions from the Sacred Flame Protection Squad, etc.)

June 4th is being remembered in San Francisco, but it doesn’t seem to be that big a deal at this point. Here’s one account from Tiananmen, in the virtual pages of SFGate:

Our eyes locked. He was attractive in a stern sort of way, with wide-set eyes and a strong, dimpled chin. He was probably four or five years my junior. We looked into one another’s eyes for a few seconds, our limbs locked in this aggressive parody of a dance. I had an absurd memory of senior prom…” On it goes.

Anyway, it looks like Chinatown will be the venue for the biggest 6-4 observation in town today.

140 Gather at City Hall in Support of Euna Lee and Laura Ling

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

This was the scene tonight at the steps of San Francisco’s City Hall, where a crowd of 140 offered their support for Euna Lee and Laura Ling. The people at the vigil called on North Korea to release these jailed reporters.

“We miss you” “Liberate Laura & Euna Now” “Set them free”

Supervisor Erica Mar was on the scene along with many City Hall staffers. Read an account from Marisa Lagos here and Jared Grigsby here.
