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.
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.”
