Caravan for Justice ... this is BIGGEST thing going this Thursday!

There will be caravan of cars and buses this Thursday, February 19, to lobby legislators in Sacramento on the issues of Oscar Grant and police killings (revising the "Police Bill of Rights" that shields their misconduct records from the public), repressive gang laws, reforming Three Strikes, and the San Francisco 8, former Black Panthers and associates being retried by Attorney General Jerry Brown for a 1971 police killing based on evidence extracted by torture in 1973.

Buses and cars will be leaving from

The caravan will arrive at the Capitol at 10:30 a.m. and participants will lobby until about 1:00 before returning, arriving back in the Bay Area around 4:00. More details as they become available.

A town hall meeting to build for the caravan will be held Tuesday 2/17 with The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan at Olivet Missionary Baptist Church in Oakland at 7:00 p.m. (Flier attached.)
