DEPARTMENT #115

On April 7, 2003 the Oakland Police Dept. opened fire on a peaceful antiwar picket line in the port of Oakland protesting the war profiteers shipping military cargo. The demonstration was called by Direct Action to Stop the War. Dozens of demonstrators and 9 longshore workers, members of ILWU Local 10 (who were honoring the picket line ) were seriously injured by the indiscriminate police use of so-called ''non lethal'' weaponry, including wooden dowels, rubber bullets , concussion grenades, and ''bean bag'' projectiles. 25 were also arrested including Jack Heyman, Local 10 business
agent, who was dragged from his car, roughed up and then arrested for the ''crime'' of trying to warn his members of the violent police attack.

They're now facing bogus criminal charges for exercising their democratic right to demonstrate. Two members of the Charleston 5 will also be participating in the rally.
