Demand the Charges Be Dropped at David's Discovery Hearing!

HANDS OFF DAVID! DROP THE CHARGES!
Stop the Attack on a Young Revolutionary!

A week after Oscar Grant’s murder, while the cop was still walking free and Oscar was being put in the ground, the people stood up in Oakland and took to the streets, demanding justice and an end to police brutality. Now, the same system that murdered Oscar Grant is trying to silence the resistance and keep it from spreading. Out of over 120 arrested, David is one of four (and the only juvenile) charged with felonies. David did not commit any crime, and is being wrongly accused of two felonies and one misdemeanor stemming from his arrest on that evening.

David, a Latino youth from East Oakland, is under attack because he is a revolutionary and a communist, and because he is a leader who is telling the truth and organizing resistance. He is a member of the Revolution Club, a group that has been fighting police brutality, exposing its roots in the system, and building a movement for revolution.

This is not just an attack on David, it is an attack on the people.

It is an attack on all of those, youth especially, who are lifting their heads and refusing to remain silent in the face of the cold-blooded police murder of Oscar Grant.

It is an attack on all those who dream of, and are working to bring into being, a radically different world.
