Add comment on:Demand Justice from BART April 8th : Framework for The Action
Oakland for Justice
This action is planned around a "framework". Within those guidelines, people who participate are able to take action according to their own conscience, risk level, and ability. The action will involve sitting-in on the platform. Bring a sign or banner to display, a noisemaker, musical instrument, t-shirt, etc, but keep it in a bag until the action starts. We intend to look indistinguishable from normal commuters as we arrive on the platform. There will be a cue that the action is starting at about 4pm, but not everything needs to happen right away, or all at once. Indeed, some of us may delay our civil disobedience or arrest until later on to prolong the process. Keep this in mind as you plan your participation. People are encouraged to form affinity groups. An affinity group is a small trusted group of friends who will be sticking together and acting according to their own plan on the day of the action. Since you are doing your own planning, you don't need to wait for instructions from anybody to act. The action is intended to conclude at 6pm.
