• ENSURING AB353 COMPLIANCE:
Stand up to police abuses and bullying! Call the Oxnard police station and demand that they observe AB353, the new California law that curbs many police checkpoint abuses. Unlicensed drivers now have the right to call a licensed driver to pick up their car, eliminating the mandatory 30-day impoundment and compounded fines. Demand to speak to the Chief of Police Jeri Williams ( She policed 22 years in Arizona-a state notorious for targeting undocumented workers of color): 805.385.7624.
Colectivo Todo Poder Al Pueblo will be on hand at the checkpoint(s) this weekend to warn drivers that the checkpoints violate our human rights and to document whether Oxnard police will comply and observe AB353. Ultimately, we demand to see drivers licenses become reinstated and accessible for everyone regardless of citizenship status. Equal rights for all drivers!
See you in the streets!-Todo Poder Al Pueblo
