October 22nd Marches and Rallies Around the Country Demand Justice
October 22nd, 2007 was the 12th National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation. In Oakland, protesters converged at 1:30pm in Frank Ogawa Plaza, outside of Oakland City Hall, at 14th Street and Broadway. A march began at 2:00pm, with a rally at 3:30pm back at Frank Ogawa Plaza. imc_photo.gif Photos: 1 | 2 | 3 A Community Feeder March demanded justice for Gary King Jr. and "No More Stolen Lives!" imc_video.gifVideo Gary King was killed by an Oakland Police officer on September 20th.

On October 17th the Oakland police said they had denied the march permit. After supporters called the police department and Mayor's officials, on October 18th the Oakland police stated that as it was a "freedom of speech issue," they could not deny or issue the permit. The march route and sound permits were issued on Friday afternoon.

On October 22nd, people in 20 cities around the United States shone a spotlight on the national epidemic of police brutality. Families that have lost loved ones at the hands of the police, others who face official persecution, and sympathetic community members came together to say, "Stop police violence, repression, and the criminalization of a generation!" This year's protests also highlighted the case of the Jena Six.

The October 22nd Coalition says, "The nationwide epidemic of police brutality and repression is hidden from many people who would be outraged if they knew what was happening. Immigration police continue to terrorize immigrant communities raiding jobs and homes and separating husbands and wives and parents from children. This official brutality and repression must stop! We must resist the onslaught of police abuse as we work in many different ways to drag this truth out into the light of day."
