Oxnard community to mark Oct. 22 Day of Action Against Police Brutality

[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.

  • NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE – KILLER COPS OFF OUR STREETS!
  • SOLO EL PUEBLO DEFIENDE AL PUEBLO
  • HANDS OFF OUR YOUTH: No more beatings, profiling, or harassment!
  •  COMMUNITY CONTROL OF THE POLICE
  • MONEY FOR SERVICES, NOT THE MILITARIZATION OF OUR COMMUNITY!
  • END THE CRIMINALIZATION – BUILD COMMUNITY POWER!
