SUPPORT CIVILIAN REVIEW OF POLICE!
Protest and Press Conference

Tues, Nov 14th - 8:30 am
Alameda County Superior Court
US Post Office Building
201 Thirteenth St, Oakland

Join Copwatch, People United for a Better Oakland (PUEBLO), Bay Area Police Watch (BAPW), ACLU of Northern California and other community groups supporting police accountability and a civilian review process that is open and accessible to the community.

WE NEED POLICE ACCOUNTABILITY NOW MORE THAN EVER!!

In the wake of the recent Copley vs. San Diego Press Inc. decision (which severely limits public access to the disciplinary records of police officers), the Berkeley Police Association (BPA) is hoping to exclude the public from any role in the police accountability process by pressing ahead with its lawsuit against the Police Review Commission. The BPA is seeking to shut down the open public hearing process which has made Berkeley's Police Review Commission a model for the nation.

Join us at the court house to demand police accountability and civilian review!!

A Press Conference with Copwatch, PUEBLO, BAPW and ACLUNC will follow the hearing.
