About Oakland 100 Support Committee

The Oakland 100 Support Committee (O100) came together after the rebellions in January 2009 against the police murder of Oscar Grant III. Since then we have worked along side arrestees to raise awareness about their cases. Through several successful benefits we raised over 4000 dollars for the 3 people that had felony cases. To this date none of them served any jail time. We produced a short documentary entitled “Hands Off Oakland Rebels” and participated in the “Drop the Charges” campaign. With the recent news of killer cop, Johannes Mesherle’s lenient sentence of involuntary manslaughter Oakland erupted again in rage. That night close to 100 protesters were arrested and 12 people are still being held in jail and facing trumped up felony charges. We are interested in working with arrestees, their friends, and families to craft what support means to them. For Information on how to befriend us in the struggle, or to send donations to arrestees write us a note at: oakland100 [at] gmail.com Oakland 100 Support Committee PO Box 22449 Oakland, CA 94609 View all posts by Oakland 100 Support Committee

    If you think disrupting the lives of innocent hard working people is wrong, don’t support this group. They are the “protestors” — the real word is vandals — who damaged AfAm owned businesses and now plan to stop service to a BART station that serves one of the poorest communities.

    If you think this is wrong, you should contact the boss of Chris Cantor, the leader of this group. He works for the state at Cal. Call his boss at 510 642 3414 and ask why that school is employing a terrorist.

      The 0100 is not led by Chris Cantor. We are a horizontal organization (that means we have no leader). We make decisions based on consensus from the larger group. This is for clarification to “Taxpayer”. Thanks.

  • Jesse Jackson

    Black bastards like you is why we hate the niggers. YOu fuckers are shit and should be in jail. Too bad the cops didnt mow you down with gun fire

  • oakland100

    “Jesse Jackson”,

    You are ridiculous.

    I made the decision to “allow” your comment on our blog (outside of consent) because I think it’s important to display the skeleton, the support system (or in your case ideas), of capitalist, patriarchal, supremacist existence, and why it is so very important to smash you, and everyone who thinks like you. Not only is your comment annoying, it’s frivolous, and pretends to be renegade; you want to be dangerous and destructuve, thus being, you and your comment exemplify everything that is wrong with the world and why we need to change* it.

    *this is to put it mildly.

    In other words, any time, any place mother fucker.
