For over a year, Amazon and Google workers have been organizing to end their companies’ $1 billion contract with the Israeli military and apartheid government. Through their contract, Amazon and Google help the Israeli government surveil Palestinians, expand illegal settlements, and inflict violence on Palestinians under siege and occupation.
The message is clear: tech workers do not want to build technology used to enable Israel’s oppression of Palestinians. Join us this Thursday, September 8 at Embarcadero Plazaalongside tech workers and Palestinian organizers, who will lead direct actions at Google and Amazon offices in San Francisco, Seattle, and New York City. Communities and workers will stand together in solidarity against this harmful contract. Learn more here!
To join the contingent for DSA SF (members in good standing only), use this link for the Signal group chat. Hope to see a lot of you there as we stand in solidarity with the Palestinian diaspora and Palestinians on the ground.

DSA SF now has a Protect Abortion Working Group
DSA SF now has a provisional Protect Abortion Working Group. The provisional co-chairs are Ellie G and Alyssa A, and initial plans are to organize pro-abortion actions in coordination with other groups including CA-DSA and National, hold a teach-in for the chapter, and organize mutual aid to support people seeking abortion access. To get involved, join the #abortion-working-group channel in DSA slack – we’ll have lots more updates about the working group’s plans and actions in the weeks and months to come.
