Title: Graffiti March for Reefa (RIP)
START DATE: Saturday August 24
TIME: 8:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Details:
Oscar Grant Plaza (14th & Broadway) Oakland
Event Type: Party/Street Party
Israel Hernandez was an artist who used a variety of mediums, including graffiti, under the name Reefa. On the morning of August 6th, Hernandez was tasered to death by Miami Beach police, who proceeded to high-five and congratulate each other. This sick incident of police brutality is nothing new, and the list of people slain by police gets longer and longer.

The evening of August 24th we will gather to seek justice for yet another wrongful death at the hands of the state, and decorate the city how Reefa did when he was murdered.
