NEW YEARS EVE! December 31st 2015 @ 8pm
14th and Broadway, Oakland
***INVITE YOUR FRIENDS******
Every New Year's Eve through out the United States and the World people take to the streets or gather in front of prisons and jails to extend a noisy gesture of solidarity with those incarcerated. This tradition is an important moment for simultaneously rejecting a society built upon policing and incarceration as well as letting those inside prison walls know that they are not forgotten.
While the struggle against policing and incarceration is as old as the United States itself, the past two years (2014 and 2015) have seen both large scale resistance to racist police murders and the racialized society that these murders are intertwined with. Cities and towns all over the United States have seen large scale social struggles demanding an end to a society based on the murder, incarceration and policing of black and brown lives.
Come down to 14th and Broadway and together we will march to the North County jail and make some noise!!
