The meeting location for this week is Siegel & Yee, in City Center (the little shopping center on Broadway between 14th and 12th). It’s basically behind (on the back side) of the row of shops that includes Radio Shack. From City Hall, cross
the street at the crosswalk and just keep walking in the space between the two large buildings. The Siegel & Yee building is diagonally to the left, up a few steps.
There will be somebody to let people in at the beginning of the meeting or a phone number you can call to have somebody let you in.
We are now meeting weekly. After the release of the (redacted) police report, the (whitewashed) DA’s report and its pronouncement that Masso was justified in gunning Alan down, and our press conference denouncing same, we will be planning further steps in our search for Justice 4 Alan Blueford. Come help us out!
We are organizing a large march for November 10th, 2012 with an emphasis on opposition to Racial Profiling, particularly Oakland’s de facto Stop & Frisk policy — which led directly to Alan’s death — and the repeal of the Police Officers’ Bill of Rights, a California law which protects Officer Masso from investigation unlike ordinary citizens.
We are expecting a large turnout and we need all the help we can get with outreach and logistics. And we need people to help plan further actions!
