David Santos, a member of the Bay Area Revolution Club, is getting charged with TWO felonies following the Oakland rebellion. This rebellion was a response to the cold-blooded murder of Oscar Grant and the system’s blatant efforts to evade justice and protect the murdering pig, Mehserle. There have been over 120 arrests and the demonizing and persecution of protestors continues to be carried out by a class of people intent on continuing their violent repression on the people.
At the age of 16, David’s political seriousness and dedication are rare and precious. As a member of the Revolution Club, he is determined to bring about revolution and communism and has been fighting the power in the Oscar Grant struggle and transforming people with the ultimate aim of sweeping away this whole rotten system.
Because David is a Latino youth and a political organizer, he is the constant target of police harassment. This attempt to take down a leader who is so valuable to the people, and youth in particular, is a clear political attack on the movement against police murders and part of a ruling class strategy to demobilize and dishearten those who have or could be moved
to struggle against this whole oppressive setup.
David is the ONLY juvenile and one of three total from that night being charged with a felony. Your support is needed now.
