National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation.
Rally and March to the Oakland Jail. (The Alameda County Pipeline to Prison).
October 22nd – National Day to Stop Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation is a VERY IMPORTANT DAY to bring fighters against different aspects of the CRIMINAL “IN”JUSTICE SYSTEM – from police brutality and outright murder, the RACIAL PROFILING, the pipeline to prison by putting criminal and “gang” jackets on our youth, the rounding up of immigrants, the increasing “police state” laws where the president can declare any person a terrorist and lock them up indefinitely without reason, the 2.4 million men AND WOMEN warehoused in this nation’s prisons, the isolation and torture of tens of thousands of them, and the denial of basic rights to those who have completed their sentence.
This, all of this, is MASS INCARCERATION! in all of its aspects and consequences. It is an EMERGENCY SITUATION and WE MUST STOP IT!
This can be a new day of MASS RESISTANCE to the ILLEGITIMACY of this system, and a day when we step out and say NO MORE! WE BLOW THE WHISTLE ON ALL OF THIS!!!
Everybody out, Rain or Shine! Bring you banners and your signs. Bring pictures of your loved ones. Be ready to speak out. And come early, if you can. We need you to help
