Stop OPD from passing Oakland youth curfew

Stop OPD from passing Oakland youth curfew! Tues 2/10 @ 530 City Hall (1 Frank Ogawa Plaza), Rm 1

A youth curfew will be passed in Oakland if we do not fight it NOW. This means that OPD will question and detain any young person for violating curfew w/out exception. This will apply to all youth under 18 years of age on City streets between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. (Sunday through Thursday) and 11:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. (as a component of the Oakland Police Department’s “strategic plan”).

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

    I think the the law is a great thing. First they need to figure out if will work, if not that is a lot of tax payers money spent on detaining these children.
    And will it effect the youth that does work, after school practice and games. Think deeper than just a curfew.
