When: Sunday, Sept. 11th 2pm-5pm (a week from tmrw)
This most recent wave of cop killings including that of Kenneth Harding, Charles Hill and Raheim Brown Jr. have angered, saddened and frightened Bay Area residents. These murders draw attention to racist policies like the Oakland and San Francisco Youth Injunctions, SF’s Sit and Lie ordinance and anti-immigrant legislation that all intend to empower the police while disempowering the poor and communities of color, making us vulnerable to state terrorism.
Police brutality aims to destroy our communities through intimidation and harassment. Sometimes it takes the form of murder but often, police brutality reveals itself through beatings, arrests and sexual assaults that often go unreported due to fear of stigma and police retaliation. In order to resist, we need to build community and create coalitions that make connections between police harassment and brutality, the parole/prison system, and these local policies that criminalize communities already struggling to survive.
Lets come together for good food and good people so that we can build stronger networks in the anti-police brutality movement!
*This event is potluck style. **vegetarian friendly.
The park is a ten minute walk from MacArthur BART. If you would like a ride from the BART or are driving from SF and can bring people, please contact us. Thanks!
