[OXNARD, CA.] Since 1996, communities throughout the United States have marked October 22nd (O22) as a National Day of Protest bringing together the voices of police brutality survivors, relatives of deceased victims, and those who stand in solidarity against police violence & abuse.
In 2015, the movement against police terror has reached a critical point throughout brown and black neighborhoods across the USA. The people of Oxnard have played a strong role in this fight, exposing attempts by the City of Oxnard and the Oxnard Police Department to dodge accountability and get away with cold-blooded killings like the March 28, 2015 shooting of Meagan Hockaday by Officer Roger Garcia, as well as other tragic police crimes.
We mark October 22 with a powerful message of unity, defying abuse at the hands of an unjust, racist system that serves the wealthy, powerful, and corrupt. O22 is a call for community members to organize and work hard to bring the power back to where it rightfully belongs – into our homes, our streets, and our neighborhoods.
Join us at Downtown Oxnard’s Plaza Park (500 C St.) on Thursday, October 22nd, 2015 at 6pm for a night of action, culture, optimism, and community power.
