Remembering Oakland Police Riot & Human Rights Violations-April 7, 2003
Six years ago Oakland police attacked non-violent anti-war protestors at Port of Oakland
On Monday, April 7th, 2003 - six years ago - Oakland police staged a violent attack on peaceful anti-war protestors at the Port of Oakland. In more enlightened times, this event would have been a clarion call to the nation that suppression of our rights and freedoms had gone to far. Instead it seems to be fading in memory. DO NOT FORGET. This was a major incident in which americans were enjoying the rights to freely express themselves against an illegal and immoral war. They were viciously attacked by the Oakland Police Force.
The city of Oakland has failed to take responsiblity for this very serious incident and has failed to hold public hearings and their promised investigation by outside parties fell apart. What a disgrace.
