This is being posted to raise awareness of a possible disconcerting situation. This has been on their calendar for some time and yet more documentation has been slow in being provided on their page of the city's website. This may be for rather nefarious reasons or for innocuous reasons. Notice this meeting is being held in Council Chambers. That rarely happens unless they expect a large crowd which means this might be the contentious item on the agenda. This item has the possibility to be the only contentious item. Though maybe the 601 MacArthur Avenue project might be of concern to those outside of the immediate neighborhood -- information is pending on that as well.
There are a number of issues that people might want to be aware of:
- since the false-flag September 11, 2011 attacks, the PATRIOT Act has essentially provided the final scapping of the Constitution. Homeland Security now has a lawless 100 mile zone inward from the Federation-of-State's borders.
- Is this part of the deportation program? Is this to be a detention/deportation center?
Stay aware. Check back with their page on the City's website to see if more information is provided. http://www2.oaklandnet.com/Government/o/PBN/OurOrganization/PlanningZoning/o/Commissions/index.htm
Oakland is supposedly a Sanctuary City.
