Occupy Oakland Clashes With OPD- War Veteran Has Skull Fractured From Being Hit by Flash Bang Canister. Sign the Petition to Jean Quan for Justice!!

As if the OPD didn’t already have a bad rep, they have caused a war veteran who was peacefully protesting brain damage. Occupy Oakland, an extension of occupy Wall Street, was hit with tear gas, flashbang canisters, and ultimately, complete disregard to our constitutional right to peacefully protest. This is bullshit! Policy critically needs to change. Attitudes of law enforcement and government need reform. The people are getting sick of oppression and brutality. Enough is enough!!!

Link to the petition to Jean Quan, telling her that peaceful assembly is a constitutional right, and police brutality needs to stop!!

“The Mayor of Oakland — and mayors and city governments across the country — should get on the right side of history and honor all Americans’ freedom to peacefully assemble and to civically engage.Public officials must listen to the grievances of this popular movement. It is absolutely unacceptable to attempt to dissuade civic engagement through the use of brutality, repression and retaliation against movement participants. This is America. All Americans have the freedom to peacefully protest our government. That right defines who we are as a country and a people, and when it is denied, all of America is the poorer for it”.  Leanne Maxwell
