KEEP UP THE HEAT AGAINST THE CURFEW IN OAKLAND!!

JOB MARCH ON CITY HALL
EMPLOYMENT FOR FORMER PRISONERS – NOT SCAPEGOATING!

Wednesday, March 2, 11am
Oakland City Hall (12th and Broadway)

On March 2 at 11 a.m. All of Us or None and Critical Resistance will be
outside Oakland City Hall demanding jobs from the City of Oakland for people
coming out of prison, on parole or probation. In response to criticism
around the curfew, and Jerry Brown's continual scapegoating of former
prisoners, Jerry Brown's press secretary Gil Duran said "If you know any
felons who need work, send them our way. If we can't hire them, we'll find
someone who can."

We are going to make him stand by his word as part of our campaign against
the curfew. TELL EVERYBODY YOU KNOW, especially former prisoners and folks
on parole or probation, to come on down to City Hall to apply for a job. We
want a long line of folks who are looking for work, to show how many of us
need jobs. We are also recruiting service providers and job developers to
come on down on that day, because we know it's unlikely that the City of
Oakland will actually provide the jobs they promise.
