Mon Mar 6 2006March 7th Rally to Protest April 7, 2003 Police Attack at Docks
Mon Mar 6 2006Teansport Workers Solidarity Committee, ILWU Call for Rally
A protest rally will be held at Oakland City Hall on Tuesday, March 7th at 4PM. The rally, which was initiated by the Transport Workers Solidarity Committee and endorsed by ILWU Local 10, the longshore union, will take place while the City Council is meeting to take a final vote on the settlements in the case of the bloody police attack on April 7, 2003 against anti-war demonstrators and longshore workers at terminal gates in the port.
The attack, in which the police used so-called "non-lethal" weapons, was condemned by the UN Human Rights Commission as one of the most violent acts of government repression. The Transport Workers Solidarity Committee says that it is necessary for all organizations that are concerned about civil liberties, civil rights, trade union rights, and police brutality to mobilize their members to protest this police attack and the government cover-up. Speakers at the rally will include some of the survivors of the police attack and their messages of solidarity. The group says that paying financial settlements to victims of police brutality does not solve the problem of the violation of democratic rights.
