Event Type Party/Street Party
This New Years Eve, lets party with the prisoners. Too many loved ones from our communities have been caught up by this RACIST PRISON SYSTEM. During this night of celebration, we make sure they know they are not forgotten by celebrating RESISTANCE, STRENGTH and SURVIVAL.

The US imprisons more people and a greater percent of its population than any other country in the world, with most inmates being black and brown. This NYE, we respond to the international calls for anti-prison demonstrations and join actions around the world. We are not calling for reform, we are fighting for abolition.

~ Live Hip-Hop
~ Booty shakin' beats
~ Militant speakers including
x Anti-prison advocates from Oakland's Latino, Black, Muslim, and Queer communities
x Occupy Oakland's Anti-Repression Committee
x The Black Riders
x Anarchists of Color
x Plus more!

Organized by fed up people of color, but everyone who's down is invited.

We all know OPD...this will not be a safe space.
