Join the call to end the militarization of police in our communities, around California, and the United States as a whole. Stop using human rights violators and war criminals from the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) to train American Police. Since the rise of Urban Shield we have seen a significant rise in homicides around the nation, committed by police.

Stop The War Convention In Our Community

Urban Shield is an annual training event for 150 local,
state, federal, and international law enforcement agencies
hosted by the Alameda County Sheriffs Department. Vendors
promote the latest in law enforcement technologies. This
includes automatic, and semi automatic weapons .
Surveillance drones, and non lethal crowd control weapons. Officers engage in 54 training scenarios in cities throughout the bay area. Urban shield is cleverly billed as a first responders training, for fire departments and emergency response teams A majority of the 7 plus mllion dollar funding from the Department
of Homeland security carries an emphasis on law enforcement. Particularly counter terrorism training. Fire and safety training becomes an anti terrorism training to contain an anarchist bomber, and a standard police search for a criminal, becomes a manhunt for an extremist. The weapons being showcased are military grade weapons that have already been used on
battlefields in, Iraq,and Afghanistan. The training is done by international human rights violators; Israel, China, Brazil, and others. On September 5th 2014 the people are invited to gather at Park Blvd Plaze, On Park Blvd and Ivy. @11:30am. There are two events taking place in conjunction with one another, but both related by Urban Shield, and the IDF training that American police are receiving.
