Emergency Response! Free Chris! Fuck the OPD!
Date Friday May 25
Time 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Location Details
19th and Rashida Muhammad Streets, Oakland

Between Telegraph and San Pablo, the little park in the middle of the block.
Event Type Protest

At a community hearing about the execution of Alan Blueford by OPD, Chief Jordan cut the hearing short when he was caught out in lies repeatedly by the community and Chris of Occupy Oakland's Tactical Action Committee in particular.

The Blueford family is left angry and frustrated without answers by those accountable and another member of Occupy Oakland was targeted, tracked to a nearby BART station, and then singled out and snatched by officers of OPD.

Chris was doing nothing other than speaking out as a young black male against state repression. He was singled out, kidnapped, and is allegedly charged with battery on an undercover officer. Multiple eyewitnesses say that at no time did Chris have the opportunity, and those of us who know him, know that he would not do such a thing.

It is time to STAND UP. It is time to show the brutal fascist thugs in blue that run this city like the gang they are that WE WILL NOT STAND FOR THIS ANYMORE.

No more state-sanctioned police executions of young people of color in this community! No more targeted kidnappings for ransom of activists who speak out against this injustice.


Note that the location is listed as 19th & Telegraph, but the start location is the small park a block down 19th at Rashida Muhammad St., between Telegraph and San Pablo.

DONATE to Chris' bail fund now!
