Days of Action Against Police Brutality Oct 22-23
See you there.
Redwood Curtain CopWatch, along with communities all over the country invites, urges you, to stand up to the police state, reject the school-to-prison pipeline and show your solidarity or rage regarding oppression and violence against any and all people for who they are, where they live, what they believe, or what they have or don't have.
Come out on Oct. 22nd and 23rd, Tuesday and Wednesday, united for Days of Action Against Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation. Oct. 22nd is the 18th National Day of Protest and the 23rd is the Memorial Day of Chris Burgess who, at age 16, was shot to death by Eureka Police Officer, Terry Liles, who is still an EPD cop and continues to terrorize kids and adults.
We stand in solidarity with courageous prisoners who went on hunger strike this July for an end to torture in CA prisons, in solidarity with kids who, now, if they get in trouble in school, don't get sent to the principal's office but to the criminal in-justice system, put on probation, setting them up for a life of targeting and lock up- as what happened to young Chris Burgess, pursued and murdered for not reporting to probation. We stand in solidarity with people being targeted for living outside, without shelter, with little resources, while affordable housing and living wage jobs are a joke here; we stand in solidarity with all oppressed people, those being beat down, hunted, stolen from, killed, entombed in concrete cells, separated from their loved ones --for migrating to the U.S., for having little to no resources, for being a person of color, for speaking up against imperialism and human right violations, for being young or trans or gay or simply different.
People all over the country, on October 22nd, will mobilize against police brutality, repression and the criminalization of a generation. This is the 18th year of this Ocotber 22nd Day of Action.
Behind the Redwood Curtain, we recognize and continue actions into October 23rd.
We remember Christopher Burgess, who was 16 years old when Eureka Police Department officer Terry Liles chased, shot and killed him on Ocotber 23, 2006.
