Friday, June 15th
Meet at 19th and Telegraph in the park.
If the community had control over the police would thousands of of people be evicted under the threat of violence from armed sheriffs?
If the community had control over the police would Alan Blueford, a 17 year old high school senior, have been shot dead in the street? Would his killer remain at large on paid leave?
If the community had control over the police would Santa Rita be an instrument of abuse and torture?
If the community had control over the police would Occupy Oakland members be subject to the summary judgement and violence we have endured these last 6 months?
NOTE!: AS OF THIS POSTING, ANOTHER COMRADE WAS SNATCHED OFF THE STREET FOLOLOWING THE H.E.A.T. ACTION AND IS FACING $110,000 BAIL FOR UTTER BULLSHIT. HIS ARRAIGNMENT IS AT 2PM AT THE WILEY COURTHOUSE!!!
IF THE COMMUNITY HAD CONTROL OVER THE POLICE, WOULD MELVIN BE KIDNAPPED AND SITTING IN JAIL?!!
Community Control of Police was rightfully one of the points of the Black Panther Program. It still is rightfully at the top of the people’s agenda and this includes control of the Sheriffs, the armed agents of the foreclosure crisis and the keepers of the county prison system.
We will be touring various relevant sites and offices downtown during lunch hour on Friday to picket, canvass and shine the light on the repressive, displacing, anti-social apparatus of the sheriffs department.
Speakers at stops along the way will include members of the Anti-Repression Committee, homeowners fighting evictions, and more.
We will have plenty of flyers and handbills for everyone so come prepared to canvass and engage your fellow Oaklanders on the street.
And come ready to MAKE SOME NOISE!
