ICE Arrests Tonight In
As of on
There may be more arrests that have happened, anyone with reliable and trusted information about other arrests should be in contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
It is unclear if further arrests will happen. if you know anyone that may find this information useful, please contact them immediately. This is a time for us all to be as calm as possible and to do what we can. We should also base things we say or email to other people on what we know and not on hunches or rumors. We are not trying to cause panic with this email but to get the word out. When we know more, so will you.
It appears that three workers were snatched by ICE while at their worksite. More soon…
Oakland and Los Angeles group, Raider Nation. Message on the Struggle for Justice and Against the Police Murder of Oscar Grant
The most likely outcome of the trial of Johannes Mehserle, the BART cop who murdered Oscar Grant on the morning of
On the other hand, a murder conviction would not be tolerated by the police and their unions, and even the most opportunistic of political leaders see a murder conviction as tying their hands in the future: they need the police, and police need to be able to kill.
Not that it matters what the state or its leaders think about murder: white supremacy and cop culture will ensure that Mehserle won’t get what's coming to him. We have already seen both in the disgusting jury selection process, which yielded a jury which includes three relatives of police officers but not one single Black person. And Michael Rains feeds on this, deploying an ingenious out-of-court strategy of defaming Oscar Grant and manipulating public opinion by leaking selective information to the press—a press which eats it up like an organic delicacy.
And if Mehserle is convicted of manslaughter, the arguments being put forward in his defense suggest that this will not even be “voluntary” manslaughter. Rather, it will be “involuntary,” allegedly the result of a tragic mistake of judgment, where a 9-pound Sig is mistaken for a 3-pound Taser.
Involuntary manslaughter in
2 short years for cold-blooded murder of Oscar Grant.
2 short years for permanently traumatizing Grant's friends who witnessed the murder.
2 short years of taking one for the team and ensuring that the genocidal system of policing and imprisonment in California can go unchecked, unrestricted, unquestioned.
For Mehserle’s 2 short years we have 2 short words: FUCK THAT.
We fully expect and hope that
With love and rage, we’ll see you in the streets,
RAIDER NATION COLLECTIVE,
Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) 3906 Stands in Solidarity with the Detained G20 Protesters
workers at McMaster University, to condemn the arrest, detention and
abuse of 900 G20 protesters.
Reports from the Movement Defense Committee?s Summit Legal Support
Project indicate that protesters are given incorrect information about
the bail process and denied timely access to counsel and release.
Meanwhile, those peacefully protesting the detention are subject to
police assault and illegal detention.
G20 Protesters are standing up for values of justice, equality, and
rights for working class people, indigenous people and the
environment. The unprecedented, violent response of the Harper
government, the Toronto Police, and the Integrated Security Unit marks
an attack on all of our democratic rights. It is a clear program of
intimidation, silencing and assault on people of conscience who oppose
the neoliberal agenda of the G20 leaders.
CUPE 3906 calls upon the government to ensure that courts and crown
attorneys act to enforce constitutional rights, to end of the program
of police violence and intimidation against G20 protesters and their
families and to hold accountable those officers and elected officials
responsible for this attack on democracy.
CUPE 3906 stands in solidarity with the detained G20 protesters in
their fight for release, fair representation, and justice.
Mary Ellen Campbell
President, CUPE 3906
All out against police brutality and in solidarity with the

The events of the past week in Toronto have been unprecedented in Canadian history. Over 900 people were arrested, the biggest mass arrests ever in
Protesters and local residents were subjected to violent baton attacks, snatch squads, tear gas and rubber bullets. Sleeping people have been pulled from their homes at gunpoint in the middle of the night. Many have been beaten. People who have been arrested have been strip-searched and held in cages, facing long delays in obtaining legal support. We have heard numerous accounts of sexual abuse by police from women who were arrested. Journalists have been punched, arrested and had their equipment broken.
On the streets of
In order to make sure that the actions of the police state are fully exposed, we must keep up the pressure on the police and the government.
We must also publicly demonstrate our solidarity with all those arrested so that they are released as quickly as possible and charges are dropped against all those caught up in the net of the police state.
Common Cause thus calls on all those concerned to take the fight back across the province and across the country.
Starting this Wednesday, June 30, we are calling for solidarity rallies outside police headquarters in as many cities as possible.
Our message will be clear:
Fight back against the police state! We are putting you under surveillance!
Build the resistance against the G20! Build the resistance against austerity!
Build the general strike!
To add your rally to the list or to send pictures from rallies, please email us at email@example.com Media may also use the same email address to contact us. Check our website for regular updates on rallies in your city.
