Alan Blueford’s Family at the Oakland City Council Meeting on Tuesday May 15, 2012 – Photos “Justice for Alan!” and for all those murdered by the killer cops at the Oakland Police Department. As one of the Alan’s relatives said, people in the community are afraid to speak up because they fear what the Police would do.

Attn:All Occupiers that have been arrested/charged in Oakland.

The DA is filing charges against Occupiers in some of the cases where charges weren’t filed after arrest – in particular, the Dec. 30 raid. The result is that people are being picked up on warrants, without even knowing charges have been filed. If you’ve been arrested but charges weren’t originally filed – CALL the District Attorney immediately (510 268 7500) to find out if any charges have been filed and if a warrant has been issued. If a warrant has been issued, call the legal hotline (415 285-1011). 16405

At 9pm, the marchers headed to the Oakland PD headquarters at 7th and Broadway where they were met by a line of officers with batons and … Continued
