Sign on to the demands:

Building on growing resistance to police militarization in the US, Bay Area community organizations and the Facing Tear Gas campaign have come together to call for Oakland's non-participation in Urban Shield, community self-determination, and solidarity with global movements. Urban Shield is connected to national police militarization programs such as 1033, 1122, Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI) and DHS Fusion Centers. Stopping Urban Shield is one step to roll back police militarization.

Organizations endorsing the resistance to Urban Shield so far include:
AROC: Arab Resource & Organizing Center
Critical Resistance
International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network (IJAN)
Alliance of South Asians Taking Action (ASATA)
Anakbayan East Bay
Xicana Moratorium Coalition
War Resisters League - Facing Tear Gas
Catalyst Project
Bay Area Childcare Collective (BACC)
Iraq Veterans Against the War - San Fransisco
Civilian Solidier Alliance - San Fransisco
Catalyst Project
United Roots
