FBI Targeting Arab Community in Oakland
The Arab Resource & Organizing Center (AROC) has recentlylearned that the FBI has been making visits to Arab families in Oakland in an attempt to gather information about the Iraqi community. This is a gross attack on the civil rights of immigrants and residents, and an attempt to instill fear and division in our communities. We stand firmly against FBI repression and the targeting of our community. We want to remind our members and allies that we are here as a resource for you. We encourage you to spread the word about this recent targeting in
attempt to proactively raise awareness about one’s rights in the case of an FBI visit.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO TALK TO THE POLICE, FBI, ICE, DHS OR ANY OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENT OR INVESTIGATOR. YOU CAN SAY NO!
If the police, FBI, DHS or anyone else tries to enter your home without a warrant, say, “I will not talk to you until I consult an attorney.”
