Oakland 25 Rally: An Injury to One, Is An Injury to All!!
Oakland 25 Rally
On April 7, 2003, in the port of Oakland, police launched the most violent attack against anti-war protestors in the U.S. since the beginning of the war in Iraq. Demonstrators, legal observers and longshoremen who were going to work were hit by police fire. Police used "crowd control" weapons in a lethal manner, shooting directly at people, injuring dozens and sending several to the hospital. Making a mockery of justice, the DA has charged the victims of police brutality instead of the real culprits, the police and CATIC, the California state anti-terrorism agency that gave them the green light! As March 20, the anniversary of the start of this war for oil and empire, approaches we must defend the democratic right to protest in the port and in the street. Bush's lies have caused this senseless slaughter in Iraq, while ripping up the Bill of Rights.
Demand the Unjust Charges Be Dropped! Defend the Right to Protest! End the War Now!!
Committee to Defend ILWU Local 10 Business Agent Jack Heyman
Update: Bogus Charges Dropped Against One of the Oakland 25
