Occupy National Gathering is a yearly gathering of Occupiers, supporters and coalition groups. Occupy’s third national gathering, NatGat 2014 or NatGat3, will take place July 31 – August 3 in Sacramento, CA. Occupy Sacramento is busy rounding up venues for 4 days of teach-ins, skillshares, workshops, open spaces and actions.
Each year a collective of occupiers forms to support the host city and participate in planning and organizing the gathering, working in autonomous subgroups and projects and coming together for reportbacks and planning as the national gathering working group, or NGWG. The NGWG2014 comprises Occupy Sacramento on the ground, and Occupiers and allies from far and wide online, hopefully soon to include you!
The working groups (about 100 occupiers so far) are busy laying the tracks, and need Occupy to drive the train and bring it home. Let us know what Occupy would like to see and bring to the Occupy National Gathering!
In addition to planning the event on the ground, a few special projects are underway that can use your energy and participation:
an online component through which people can participate

This will be our debut show of something that is near & dear to my heart: Video Games! PEW-PEW!
But, this won't be just a show about Video Games and why we like them! We will be digging into the various on-going matters, both positively & negatively, in the Game & Game Developer Industry! Loud & proud from Sacramento, CA!
I hope you will join us & enjoy all that will be talked about! It's going to get quite nerdy!
My special guest will be Jeff Louie, the Founder & Owner of Capsity, an awesome Tech Co-Working Office Space here in Downtown Sacramento!
Putting an initiative on the ballot can be dangerous to your freedom as a number of collective operators have found out in Santa Ana. In a series of raids, 42 people were arrested over a 2-day period for operating store-front collectives that violate the city’s ban.
Patients collected enough signature for an initiative that would rescind the ban and allow for a limited number of licensed collectives. The city responded with its own initiative that is much more restrictive allowing operation in only two industrial zones. The city then allocated an additional $500,000 for police operations to close dispensaries.
Hearings have been contentious with a group called Latino Health Access strenuously opposing the collectives at city council meetings. Kandice Hawes, one of the petition organizers and a member of OCNORML, will review what has happened, take a jaundice view of the city’s actions and explain their plan to overcome local opposition to get the patient’s initiative passed.
The second part of the show will feature a live session from Sacramento with patients who participated in ASAs Citizen Lobby Day. Hear about the “touchy” morning session on SB 1262 with bill author Sen. Lou Correa as well as first-hand accounts of their visits to the offices of their state assembly member and state senator.

This week I'm joined by Jordan White. Jordan writes for Hardwood Paroxysm and The Cauldron, and is responsible for some of the worst photoshops on Twitter. But he's a die-hard NBA fan, and we're going to pick his brain on the summer's events.
We'll talk about DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay in the FIBA World Cup, we'll get an outsider's perspective on the Kings' offseason, and more!
JASON TERRELL BROWN, SR.
is A 32 YEAR OLD ARTIST BORN AND RAISED IN SACRAMENTO, CA. HE IS THE OLDEST OF 7 CHILDREN AND THE FATHER OF 4 CHILDREN - 3 GIRLS AND 1 BOY AND 3 STEP CHILDREN.
MUSIC STARTED FOR JASON WHEN HE WAS AROUND 5, LISTENING TO HIS GRANDMA BETTEY BROWN (RIP) SING WHEN HIS FAMILY GOT TOGETHER AT GATHERINGS. WHEN HE WAS IN CHURCH HE WOULD LISTEN TO THE CHOIR SING, LISTEN TO THE DRUMMER, AND THE MAN PLAYING THE KEYBOARD AND PIANO. THAT’S WHEN IT CLICKED AND HE SAID TO HIMSELF THAT HE WANTED TO DO MUSIC. SO HE STARTED WATCHING MTV AND VH1 AND THE MUSIC CHANNELS ON CABLE. THEN HE STARTED HITTING THE WALLS AND TABLES AND OTHER THINGS WITH A BUTTER KNIFE AND FORKS OR SPOON.
AROUND THE AGE 0F 21, JASON GOT BACK INTO MUSIC. HE WAS MOTIVATED BY TWO COUSINS, WHO WERE MUSICIANS. HE LINKED UP WITH SOME OTHER COUSINS AND THEY STARTED A RECORD LABEL CALLED SMAKK DABB RECORDS. THEY WERE GOING STRONG FOR A WHILE, BUT IN TIME, ISSUES AROSE AND DIFFERENCES COULD NOT BE WORKED OUT. EVENTUALLY THE GROUP SPLIT UP. AFTER THE SPLIT OF THE GROUP, HE STARTED B.D.R (BIG DOONEY RECORDS). JASON EMBARKED ON A SOLO CAREER IN EARLY 2006-2007. HE HAS BEEN WRITING HIS OWN MUSIC, MAKING BEATS, RECORDING AND PROMOTING AS AN INDIE ARTIST.
