Club Feral Benefit to Support the Oakland 100! Saturday, April 4th, Thee Parkside!

“We are suffering. We have suffered. And we are not afraid to suffer in order to win our cause.” -Cesar Chavez

Saturday, April 4, 2009 at 10:00pm
Thee Parkside, 1600 17th Street (at Wisconsin)
-accessible via the 22 Filmore, or walking/biking 10 blocks from 16th street bart

Dancin’! Rockin’! Politikin’!

DJ’s VINYL ABUSER and PUBLIC FRENEMY bring the dance grooves!

ROCK, MORE ROCK, ULTIMATE ROCK ACOUSTIC ROCK FROM:

LIGHT LEAKS
YEAR ONE
SANTA SANGRE
SUSPECT, SUSPECT

plus even MORE fun and inspiration (Like you’ll need it)

Can’t drop a banner or smash the state right now? How about doing some dancing, listening, reflecting, (okay, okay, maybe some drinking)? All to the same end – DROP THE CHARGES AGAINST THE OAKLAND 100!!!

Support the many people of Oakland who, in the early weeks of January, 2009, took a strong stand against the continuing legacy of police terrorism in Oakland!

In the aftermath of the January Rebellions, there are still about 140 people with various charges still looming over their heads. While the DA declined to charge several demonstrators and by-standers “at this time”, he still has a year to do so. Add to that the 6 people with fabricated felonies proceeding toward trial. There is a real need for funds to help out some of the folks who may be facing lengthy, expensive trials.

Come have fun while showing solidarity with the struggle to END POLICE TERRORISM!</em

Drop the Charges! Week of Escalation!

Special note – Though our targeted dates were Friday the 13th and Tuesday the 17th, everyday is a good day to contact the Board of Supervisors, the DA and the Mayor. Let them know that you want all charges against all protesters dropped! NOW!

*DROP THE CHARGES! JAM THE SYSTEM!*

*SUPPORT THE O100, THOSE ARRESTED DURING THE OSCAR GRANT REBELLIONS IN JANUARY*
Of the over 140 arrests during the Oscar Grant rebellions, most have
not had charges filed. This means that the D.A. could decide to bring
charges on them for up to a year. A drop the charges campaign will
continue until we are certain every charge has been dropped!

There are still about a dozen people with charges, three of them felonies
facing substantial jail time. Their next court dates are next week. It is
important that we keep up our resistance to this assault on our community,
and these individuals’ trumped up charges.

*TAKE ACTION*
One way to effectively support those going to court is to flood city officials with
phone calls, faxes, and emails in a concerted manner. Help us JAM THE
SYSTEM from your home, school, or office, this FRIDAY the 13th and next
TUESDAY the 17th to show the town that scapegoating protesters as violent
criminals will not be tolerated, as we all know who the real perpetrators
of violence are.

Let Mayor Dellums, District Attorney Orloff, and all city officials know you
want all charges dropped against people arrested during demonstrations
related to Oscar Grant’s murder!

Its easy! You can just call and say “I understand that someone who was
charged with a felony protesting Oscar Grant’s Murder is in court this
week. I am calling to urge you to drop the charges. City officials need
to take responsibility by making sure that people protesting the
criminalization of Oakland youth are not further criminalized themselves.”
Or copy and paste this message to and email or fax and SEND SEND SEND!
