A couple hundred turned out for a 2pm rally at 14th and Broadway in Oakland on October 22, 2001. As I publish this a march is arriving at city hall where the rally will continue. This clip is an interview with Karen Sari of the Stolen Lives Project.
The National Day of Protest aims to bring forward a powerful, visble, national protest against police brutality and the criminalization of a generation. It aims to expose the state's repressive program. It aims to bring forward those most directly under the gun of police brutality AND to also reach into all parts of society--bring forward otheres to stand in the fight against this official brutality. And the national Day of Protest aims to strengthen the peoples' organized capacity for resistance in a variety of ways. (From National Day of Protest mission statement)
