Organizer/Author
Let Oakland's New Mayor know, "THERE WILL BE NO BUSINESS AS USUAL UNTIL OPD STOPS THE WAR ON BLACK LIVES."


On Monday, January 5th, Ms. Schaaf will be inaugurated as Oakland's mayor. We will convene outside the Paramount Theater as a silent wall along the sidewalk from BART to the entrance of the theater so that every guest of the Mayoral Inauguration knows that Oakland expects the new Mayor to have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to police terror in Oakland.

We ask attendees to join this SILENT protest, wear all black, join the line on the edge of the sidewalk and wear or hold your choice of signage (we'll be posting some examples for you to print on this event).

We will not shout, chant or do anything that makes this an arerstable action. This action is meant to unify Oakland residents (current and those that have been displaced) in a powerful message of solidarity that says to the new mayor: IT ENDS TODAY.

The Anti Police-Terrorism is a project of the ONYX Organizing Committee in collaboration with individuals and organizations such as The Community Ready Corps, the Alan Blueford Center for Justice, Healthy Hoodz and the Black Power Network.
