To all of our Allies, Over the past six weeks, Oakland community members, organizers, attorneys and impacted families have gathered to form a broadbased coalition to stop the proposed ‘gang’ injunctions in North Oakland. In March, the injunction was filed by the Oakland City Attorney and has a clear agenda of raising property taxes in this gentrifying neighborhood while blatantly codifying sweeping racial profiling and criminalizing the day-to-day activities of youth of color. Impacted communities are demanding the resources it would take to enforce this injunction be invested in addressing root causes of violence and real solutions for building healthy, affordable communities for everyone. The rally is scheduled to coincide with the preliminary hearing and is an important opportunity to challenge the injunction and raise awareness about this Oakland-wide issue. Take Action! -Come to Our Meetings We meet every Tuesdays at 5:30 pm at Bushrod Park (59th and Shattuck, in the community center).  All community members welcome to help us strategize real solutions to violence in Oakland.  If you get lost, contact 415 328 839 -Sign our Online Petition: http://www.petitiononline.com/OakInjun/petition.html -SAVE THE DATE! Rally To STOP the Injunctions! Thursday April 22nd at 12:30pm: Rally at the Courthouse, 1221 Oak St., Dept 20, Oakland For more info, email: stoptheinjunction [at] gmail.com or visit: stoptheinjunction.wordpress.com In Solidarity, Coalition to STOP the Injunction
