Don't Forget WE HAVE THE POWER TO SHUT IT ALL DOWN!

On October 23, 2010, the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 10 in the Bay area organized a Shut Down of the Ports and Rally in protest of the murder of Oscar Grant and in resistance to police violence, especially against youth of color, and the violence and pervasiveness of the Prison Industrial Complex.  Read below a Solidarity Statement from Japanese Railworkers.

1. OAKLAND, October 23rd 2010: PORT SHUT DOWN FOR OSCAR GRANT!
Rally: 12 Noon, City Hall, 14th and Broadway

 

OUTRAGE! An Innocent Black Man Shot in the Back by Police and... Killed for No Reason!

 

*Killer Cop Gets Off With Involuntary Manslaughter! * *

 

Photographic Evidence Proves: It Was Murder! *

 

Oscar Grant was a father of a young daughter, a working person in Oakland, and innocent of any crime! He was shot while he was held face-down with his hands behind him, by BART cop Johannes Mehserle!

 

Only because of massive street protests in Oakland, and cell-phone videos of the shooting which made it onto the nightly news, was the cop eventually charged with murder. But after a change of venue to Los Angeles, Mehserle received the lightest conviction: involuntary manslaughter. Oakland's integrated community rose again to protest.

 

ILWU Calls Rally& Port Shutdown!  

With Mehserle's long-delayed sentencing set for November 5th, Local 10 of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU), supported by many other unions and local community groups, called for a rally in downtown Oakland for Saturday, October 23rd at 12 noon.

 

And now the longshore membership has voted for a port shutdown as well, to say: Justice for Oscar Grant! Labor Unity With the Community! Jail Killer Cops!

Thursday and Friday (10/28, 10/29)! Civil Rights Rallies in Garberville

For Immediate Release: contact Paul 707.923.4488   Oct 27, 2010

Emerald Region Poor People's Campaign

STAND UP GET UP

Once again, the rain is a sign for police action against the poor. Wed, Oct 27, camps have been raided here in SoHum. Shamefully, deputies and chp have set up checkpoints in Redway and street sweeps in Garberville as well. Those without I.D.s showing local addresses are warned to leave the area or face arrest.

Numbers of people were arrested and others issued tickets. Reportedly the police are promising 20 or more officers for Thursday, Oct. 28.

Opposed to a police state for the poor who don't have the proper papers? Fed up with a County where the police and some hardline merchants and some hippy gentry make policy and NOT elected officials and their administrators?
