According to the East Bay Express and eyewitness testimony, U.S. Marshals were surveilling a home in East Oakland when community organizer Jabari Shaw exited the building with his four-year-old daughter. Shaw and his daughter entered the car, driven by close friend Mary Vaillancourt. Federal officers, dressed in plainclothes, approached the car with weapons drawn but failed to identify themselves clearly as law enforcement. Unsure of their identity and fearing for her life, Vaillancourt accelerated away from the scene, prompting several unmarked cars to pursue them. When officers identified themselves as law enforcement by flashing their lights, Vaillancourt attempted to stop at a red light, but the car was rammed from behind by pursuing officers, propelling the vehicle through the intersection and into the back of a Paratransit van.

On Sunday, March 29th from 1-4 pm a fundraiser is being held to help with costs associated with incident.

If you are unable to attend, please contribute to the online fundraiser at: http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/fundraiser-for-jabari-anniyah-mary/325030

This event is co-sponsored by Community Ready Corps (CRC), Anti-Police terror project (APTP), Eastside Arts Alliance & Black Power Network (BPN).
