Event Type Protest
Organizer/AuthorChris Kinder, Labor Action Com
Journalist JR Valrey was arrested by Oakland Police on the night of January 7th, 2009, for covering the street uprising following the police murder of Oscar Grant. JR has consistently covered police brutality and terrorism. The bogus charge he faces: felony arson! JR is accused of starting a fire in a barrel on the street, but he had no fire-making equipment (no matches, no lighter, etc) at the time. He was working as a journalist, covering the protests over the murder of Oscar Grant--and this is what the police are persecuting him for.

JR Valrey is POCC Minister of Information, host of Block Report Radio, a producer of Flashpoints at KPFA, and associate editor of the SF Bay View Newspaper
