    On May 22nd, AROC celebrated the life and work of Malcolm X, as well as our dear comrade Javad Jahi, at the Malcolm X Jazz Festival.  AROC staff and members delivered a statement alongside the Bay Area Campaign to End Israeli Apartheid, Haiti Action Network, Plan for a Safer Oakland, and the Eastside Arts Alliance youth, showing joint struggle for liberation across communities.  AROC member Alia Ghabra spoke out, saying “We stand here today because our people are occupied, whether it is from the police on our streets here, or the occupations in Palestine and Iraq.”
