No Injunctions in North Oakland! sign now

In early March, Oakland Police and City Attorney John Russo filed a civil injunction against up to 80 people in North Oakland, claiming they were a gang. These injunctions target Black and Brown youth, labeling them criminals just for hanging out in groups, associating with friends and family, being out after 10 p.m., or wearing certain clothing. More injunctions are planned for other parts of the city, even though the City Council hasnt approved them. The injunction allows Oakland police to harass our youth, take their pictures and register them as gang members based on their clothing and friendship circles. The gang injunctions take away our civil liberties, turn our neighborhoods into police zones, and push us out so rich people can move in. Gang injunctions havent decreased crime anywhere theyve been tried theyre just another way for police to target immigrants and other people of color.

WE OPPOSE the gang injunctions planned for Oakland. WE OPPOSE racial profiling. WE SUPPORT after-school programs, job programs, youth centers, and alternatives to sending our young people to jail.

    why blame everyone? be more efficient and actually try to catch the criminals. doing this is a lazy way out and it shows that authority has a weakness and that is not being able to persevere or come up with a better idea to fix problems. Address;Zip Code
