Update on “Occupy A’s FanFest”:
Occupy A’s FanFest is being put on as a sign of A’s fans opposition to the proposed move of the Oakland Athletics to San Jose. The goal is to create a presence inside and outside of Oracle Arena on January 29th to show A’s ownership that we, the fans, say no to a move south and that we want the A’s to stAy in OAKLAND!
Things will kick off Saturday January 28th, with the return of the first Bleacher Bum FanFest Camp Out since 2008 at the corner of 66th Ave & Coliseum Way around 10:30 pm PST. Feel free to join us and bring pro Oakland signs to hang up during the night. You all ready know Jorge Leon will have his. Also feel free to bring a grill and/or things to grill. Click here to for more info.
From 10 am – 2 pm PST is when FanFest will take place. There will be a group inside showing support for keeping the team in Oakland as well as a group outside in the parking lot. We are asking all who come to wear ether the Oaklandish “StAy” t-shirt, A’s gear with OAKLAND on it or your own custom designed pro Oakland shirt as our sign of protest.
The final event of the day will be the Occupy FanFest Edition of A’s Fan Radio at the Bleacher Crew Tailgate Spot, located between A & D Gate in the parking lot. We will go over everything A’s related that goes down between now and FanFest as well as get your feed back on what actions need to be taken to keep the A’s in Oakland. This will also be our 1st show in front of a LIVE CROWD since the last show we did at La Estrellita Cafe And Bar in the summer of 2007 during the 1st running of AFR. The show will kick off around 2 pm PST.
We are also asking fans of the Oakland Raiders & Golden State Warriors to join us for this event. Remember, Oakland faces the chance of losing ALL 3 TEAMS NOW! Plans are in the works right now to hold a tailgate/rally event for fans of all 3 Oakland teams at City Hall to lite a fire under Oakland’s leadership to hurry up and get things crackin’ before its too late.
Hope to see you all there. Till then, stAy safe & keep up the fight to KEEP THE AS IN OAKLAND!
