Come out and support the Oakland rebels!
Join us for a film and discussion on Saturday, August 7 at Station 40 from 6 to 8 pm.
We will be showing footage from the night of the Mehserle verdict and the 2009 rebellion. We'll also feature snippets from the documentary "Get Militant," produced by Raustean and Jacob Crawford, which includes interviews of Oscar Grant's friends who were on the platform the night of his murder. As well as Copwatching footage from the last year and a half from New York, Cincinnati and the Bay.
Following this will be a discussion about what it means to create and sustain a "Copwatch culture" and to struggle against the police in our communities. In light of the trial verdict and the legislation being passed across the country making it illegal to copwatch, it is more important than ever that we show our strength and power in the streets. In this crucial time, when folks from the rebellion are still in jail and in need of all kinds of support, we're hoping that you'll come join us and show solidarity.
WARNING. We will show the video of the actual murder of Oscar Grant, which may not be something all people feel comfortable watching.
BRING MONEY! $5 - $10,000/platinum chains & other bling-blang. No one turned away for lack of funds. All proceeds will go directly to prisoners through the O100 support committee.
