Holly’s Trial Set for Monday May 10th

Holly of the Oakland 100 goes to court May 10 at 9AM at the Alameda county
courthouse (1225 Fallon st)

Holly was one of nearly 150 people rounded up in the riots that followed
the police murder of Oscar Grant in January 2009. Most of the people
arrested were never charged, but Holly was one of 4 people arbitrarily
given Felony charges. All other felony charges have been dropped leaving
only Holly. Holly was simply in the streets protesting police violence,
but was arrested and is being scapegoated by the DA through charges of
assaulting an officer with a deadly weapon.

Please come out to support Holly and show the DA and Alameda county that
we havent forgotten about the Murder of Oscar Grant and that we will not
let outraged members of the community be railroaded to prison when the
police are the perpetrators of violence and murder.

Trial begins Monday, May 10th 8:30 am at Alameda County Courthouse, 1225
Fallon St., Courtroom 11

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
