US, Oakland, CA. Report of benefit for Israeli Anarchists Against the Wall (AATW) 11 Jun

Hello I. and K. ---- Hope you are both well.
Since you two were the contacts that put me in touch with D. and gave the go-ahead for the AATW benefit in Oakland, I just wanted to give you a brief report back on the event.
There were between 30-40 people in attendence. A few local bands played music, and D. gave an excellent presentation with films and slides and a good Q and A session at the end. The venue took a percentage of the proceeds from the door for its costs (as agreed) so after that, the total combined money raised from the door, merchandise (from t-shirts, buttons, patches) and donations came to $200usd. Not great but not bad either.

I was very honored to be able to help in some small way.
Maybe we can do another similar (and hopefully better) event sometime in the future.
Thank you and please keep up the good work.
In Solidarity,
D. H.
