Denounces Police Murders of Casper Banjo and Jose Luis Buenrostro-Gonzalez: Calls for Action!

11:30am Meet at the Uhuru House, 7911 MacArthur Blvd
March to the Eastmont Mall (73rd Avenue and MacArthur Blvd.) for a 12 noon Demonstration

We demand:

* Reparations be paid to the families of Casper Banjo and Jose Luis Buenrostro-Gonzalez by the City of Oakland and OPD.
* The indictment of the police who shot and murdered Jose Luis and Casper Banjo.
* The City of Oakland end its public policy of police containment of the African and Mexican communities.
* The City of Oakland do a massive infusion of capital into East and West Oakland for economic development of the African and Mexican communities.

$7.7 Million Gives OPD the License to Kill!

On March 4th, the Oakland City Council approved Mayor Ron Dellums’ request for $7.7 million to recruit and train more Oakland police. As the family of Jose Luis said, "They are paying them to kill our children."

Within two weeks of the approval of the funds, Oakland police killed world-renowned African artist Casper Banjo and 15-year-old Jose Luis Buenrostro-Gonzalez, a Mexican student at Oakland Aviation High School. Both killings occurred in East Oakland near the Eastmont Police Station within a mile and a half of each other.

The Oakland police and media continue to slander and intimidate the African and Mexican communities in an attempt to justify these murders. We must take a stand against this lack of consideration for African and Mexican life and the continued attacks on these communities.
