Oakland Rally Questions 2003 Attack on Protesters
A press conference and rally were held at 4:30 PM on Tuesday, February 21st at Oakland City Hall to protest the role of the police, the global shipping companies, and the US government on the attack made on April 7, 2003 against peaceful pickets and longshormen. On April 7th, 2003, 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. This police attack with rubber bullets and other weapons injured many demonstrators and longshoremen. The lawsuit for financial damages from the City of Oakland was settled, but rally organizers felt that this does not end the need to expose the reasons for the attack, the egregious violation of protesters' civil liberties and labor rights, and the local government officials and others who supported the attack.
