Called for by the People of Color and Queer People of Color Caucus:

POC Vigil November 17th


The People of Color and Queer People of Color Caucus of Occupy Oakland cordially invite you to an event to honor our ancestors that died resisting colonial domination:

Our foremothers and our forefathers, ancestors who fought and rebelled from day one of this land occupation:
Slave Revolters, Freedom Fighters, Migrant Workers, Indigenous Warriors, Indentured Servants.WE PROUDLY HONOR inspirational figures from our diverse backgrounds and the resiliency of our communities that brought us to this pivotal moment in time.We will draw upon this collective spirit to guide us forward.When: THIS Thursday! Nov. 17th from 7pm-9pm

Where: Oscar Grant Plaza–formerly frank ogawa plaza (if the plaza is inaccessible due to police activity, we will meet at 15th and Broadway)

***Because the cops took it upon themselves to destroy the altar at Occupied Oakland during their raid early Monday morning, we are asking participants to bring pictures (of loved ones or inspirational figures), flowers, and other offerings to construct a new altar that reflects our resistance and refusal to be silent in the face of state violence.

In Solidarity with the Occupy the Hood Movement

Special Performance by Rebel Diaz.

Words, Song, Percussion.
