Facing Urban Shield Public Witness & Rally
Friday | 09:00 until 20:00
On October 25th, from 9-5 in downtown Oakland, we will hold an all day community picket and public witness in front of the Marriott Hotel to let Urban Shield know that we are putting them on notice, that they are not welcome in Oakland – as well as a press conference at 11am. From 5-6 we will hold a memorial to remember those who’ve been killed as a result of police violence or militarism.
October 25th, also happens to mark exactly two years since Occupy Oakland was viciously attacked with tear gas and other weapons, by OPD- which actually brags that they were trained in “crowd control’ methods by Urban Shield!
Following the memorial, we will rally and march to symbolically re-occupy Oscar Grant Plaza – where we’ll celebrate our return with a roasted pig, as well as some local musicians, spoken word and other festivities.
