The People of Color and Queer People of Color Caucus of Occupy Oakland cordially invite you to an event to honor our ancestors that died resisting colonial domination:Added to the calendar on Tuesday Nov 15th, 2011 12:20 PM
Our foremothers and our forefathers, ancestors who fought and rebelled from day one of this land occupation:
Slave Revolters, Freedom Fighters, Migrant Workers, Indigenous Warriors, Indentured Servants.
WE PROUDLY HONOR inspirational figures from our diverse backgrounds and the resiliency of our communities that brought us to this pivotal moment in time.
We will draw upon this collective spirit to guide us forward.
When: THIS Thursday! Nov. 17th from 7pm-9pm
Where: Oscar Grant Plaza--formerly frank ogawa plaza (if the plaza is inaccessible due to police activity, we will meet at 15th and Broadway)
Because the police took it upon themselves to destroy the altar at Occupied Oakland during their raid early Monday morning, we are asking participants to bring pictures, flowers, and other offerings to construct a new altar that reflects our resistance and refusal of silencing tactics by the state.
Special Performance by Rebel Diaz.
Words, Song, Percussion.
Please join us.
If you would like to perform or speak, please contact Rebecca at 415.902.2794/ rebecca415 [at] gmail.com
