International Women's Day protest for Hyatt workers
UNITE-HERE Local 2 is powered in part by workers at the Grand Hyatt. The largely female workforce that cleans the Hyatt has taken more than its share of abuse. Last October, when two Hyatt cleaning veterans saw that supervisors had pinned up photoshopped images that appeared to be them and their co-workers in bikinis, they tore them down — then they got fired (see "Hyatt in the hot seat," 11/22/11). In response, Local 2 is organizing a creative protest to bring attention to this kind of disrespect.

Anthropology in the world
Professor Laura Nader has taught anthropology for 50 years. No really, she's been a professor at UC Berkeley since 1960. The school will show her some love with this three-day symposium starting March 8, featuring speakers on all kinds of anthropology-related subjects. Among them: the professor's little brother, Ralph Nader.

World Naked Bike Ride
Join thousands across the world and bike naked — or as close to naked as you want — at this annual tradition. It's a protest against oil dependency, spread a love of biking, and challenge cultural norms. But mostly it's a chance to drift in a sea of bare asses on bike seats. Last year, the turnout was the biggest ever, so you probably don't want to miss this year.
