February 6: Where Will You Be? What Will You Do? CONDEMN THE POLICE MURDER OF OSCAR GRANT ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Read the full article Enough is Enough! A March of Stolen Lives There is a nationwide epidemic of police brutality and murder being unleashed upon our people by the whole system that rules over us. In the time that we are told the society is now "post-racial"-these killings are overwhelmingly, but not exclusively, against young people of color. And the numbers of stolen lives are on the rise. WE SAY "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! THE WHOLE DAMN SYSTEM IS GUILTY!" Friday, February 6 at 3:00 pm Frank Ogawa Plaza 14th and Broadway, Oakland End Police Murder Now! Justice For Oscar Grant!
