Expose The Cover-up By Oakland Police, Port Of Oakland, Shipping Employers &
On April 7, 2003 in a pre-meditated attack, Oakland police and the Port of Oakland in collusion with global shipping companies attacked peaceful pickets and longshoremen who were standing by as a result of a picket line against the war in Iraq.
The police attack with rubber bullets and other weapons injured many demonstrators and longshoremen.
The need to expose the reasons for this and the role of Oakland Mayor Jerry Brown, and Oakland City Council President Ignacio De La Fuente as well as others who supported this attack is critical.
The settlement by the City Of Oakland for financial damages does not end the need to expose the reasons for the attack on egregious violation of our civil liberties and labor rights.
Please join this press conference and rally to expose the truth about this
