Sun Apr 4 2010 (Updated 04/15/11)Portland Actions Inspire Call-Out from the Bay to the Sound: No More Police Killings!
UPDATE: reports on April 8th/9th actions
After the recent uprisings in Portland in response to two police murders, a call has gone out for "West Coast Days of Action April 8th and 9th, From the Bay to the Sound: No More Police Killings!" The call to action reads in part: "Organize protests and autonomous actions in your own city! ... The only times the police have ever been held responsible for their murders is when we take to the streets and halt business as usual. Following the law, being peaceful, being quiet, has never discouraged police violence, because it is the function of the police to use violence against the exploited, against the oppressed, against those who fight back." Announced actions include non-violent civil disobedience at Embarcadero BART station in San Francisco on April 8th and an Anti-Police General Assembly in Portland and a march against police brutality in Seattle on April 9th.
April 8th: In the Bay Area, community activists have called for non-violent civil disobedience at Embarcadero BART station in San Francisco to reiterate three long-time demands since the murder of Oscar Grant on New Year's Day 2009: fire and prosecute BART officer Tony Pirone, and disband the BART police.
