In front of Oakland City Hall on July 11, Leigh Davenport of the Anti Police-Terror Project announced community activists' intention to recall Mayor Libby Schaaf. Primary among the concerns cited as cause for Schaaf's removal from office are her failures: 1) to address the massive displacement of long-time Oakland residents; 2) to support local youth and job centers; and 3) to hold Oakland police accountable for corruption, sexual exploitation, and those they've killed. Also referenced was ...

document Labor Working to Undermine Strong Civilian Police Oversight in Oakland [Updated] revised_7_8_16_oakland__council_police_commission.pdf_140_.jpg by Dave Id
A November 2016 ballot measure for a new Oakland Police Commission is expected to be finalized and approved by the Oakland City Council at their meeting on July 19. The measure, originally proposed by the Coalition for Police Accountability and since taken up by the City Council, continues to be watered down further and further. Local non-police unions have turned out to be one of the most vociferous opponents to strong civilian police oversight in Oakland, even though police "unions" such ...
