Justice for Sahleem Tindle Rally & March

Justice for Sahleem Tindle Rally & March

  • Superior Court of California, County of Alameda (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Sahleem Tindle family continues to fight for #Justice4Sahleem and demand that #OMalleyChargeMateu with murder. Joseph Mateu is the BART police officer who murdered Sahleem Tindle across from the West Oakland BART station on January 3, 2018. Despite clear video proof that Sahleem was not holding a weapon and was shot in the back, no charges have yet been filed against Mateu. In fact the BART Police Chief is considering Mateu for a promotion.

This is why the family is calling for an 11:30 rally in front of Nancy O'Malley's office at the courthouse on 12th St and Fallon, by Lake Merritt. 

They will then march at 1:30 to 2040 Webster St. where the BART Board meetings are held.

There will be a dedication there at 2:30 to the life and spirit of Sahleem Tindle.

The BART Police Citizen Review Board meeting then starts there at 4:00 pm. In addition to public comment, on the agenda is a discussion of "Effect of Pending Internal Investigations on Promotional Opportunities for BPD Personnel" as part of the BART Chief of Police Carlos Rojas' report for "discussion and action". Also on the agenda are "BPD Administrative Leave Process (Criteria for Returning an Officer to Full Duty Pending Completion of an Officer-Involved Shooting Investigation). For Discussion and Ac
tion." and "Use of Force Policy Training Status. For Discussion and Action." Even this item "BPD Media Communications and Information Policy. For Discussion and Action" is relevant as Chief Rojas publicly praised Officer Mateu for "courage" for his murderous actions.

Healing Justice + Rapid Response Training

Healing Justice + Rapid Response Training

What are some ways our communities have resisted violence over generations? What does this say about our ability to heal trauma and build wellness into the fabric of our lives and communities? What practices do you and your communities do to ground, center, and keep resilient? Why is it important to center healing within our movements?

This is a moment to invite our radical imagination, our BIG hearts, and our outrage to build community and make change. As part of the statewide Justice Teams Network Caravan- we will be sharing our Healing Justice approach within our Rapid Response work. Our work centers the healing and regeneration of the families and communities we work with, as well as the healing of the healers and rapid response workers. We will set the context for a Rapid Response training that our partners, The Anti Police-Terror Project will lead. The First Responders Training draws upon over 10 years of experience of investigating incidents of police terror and providing support to impacted families. The training will cover the history, structure, and organizing model of APTP. 

Join Cat Brooks and the DPN Building Resilience team in this very important and timely conversation.

Pack the Police Commission: Demand Accountability!

Pack the Police Commission: Demand Accountability!

From its inception, the Oakland Police Commission has been incredibly problematic. One of the most egregious elements is that it allows the Mayor to directly appoint three people to the commission with no vetting.

NOW - the Commission is dragging its feet to comply with community demands that the Chair of the commission, Thomas Lloyd Smith, who was directly appointed by Libby Schaaf, undergo an investigative process related to inappropriate actions he has taken as the Chair:

  • On March 11, the night of the most recent police shooting in Oakland, Mr. Smith showed complete disregard for the community by getting on the media and parroting the police narrative of that shooting without any investigation having happened. 
  •  Mr. Smith falsely claimed that the meetings needed to move from Wednesday to Thursday’s because that was the only day KTOP could broadcast in an effort to exclude a member of the commission who has been publicly critical of his behavior.
  • There are multiple concerns about the actions of Mr. Smith, both on the dais and behind the scenes. These have been brought to him both from the community in public forum and privately, and as well have been expressed to him by several commissioners- mostly women. He remains unwilling to acknowledge or respond to these concerns.

Not only has his actions demonstrated a necessity for careful scrutiny of the behaviors of commissioners, but before this commission was even formed we knew it was compromised by the placement of Mayoral appointees without a clear transparent process for the skills, and characteristics of who the mayor would send to be on this commission. We knew this before the commission even began, but as a Mayoral appointee, he has simply proven our point.

We continue to maintain that all commissioners should be appointed by the community to represent the community, and should be always evaluated by and held accountable by the community. You cannot replicate the systems of oppression that exist within the police department by hiding facts, being dishonest and avoiding accountability. 

Join APTP to demand an investigative process for Mr. Smith to be accountable for his actions.

Demand DA O'Malley Charge Mateu for Sahleem's Murder

We're asking everyone who can to support the family of Sahleem Tindle in their struggle to get justice for Sahleem, who was murdered by BART officer Joseph Mateu on January 3, 2018. BART was forced to release the body cam video of his murder, where it was exposed for all to plainly see that 28 year old Sahleem was shot in the back three times with his hands up and no weapon in sight! We have been with the family to two BART Board meetings and a BART Police Commission Meeting in the past few weeks, where the family and community have pressed hard to get Mateu fired.

The family's demands are to fire, charge and prosecute this murderer! On Tuesday, 3/13, at 10am, we're going to have a talk with DA Nancy O'Malley, who has the power to prosecute him. Mind you, she's never prosecuted a single killer cop, so we have to press hard to make her break that record. Here's the event info for that:

Protest! Call to Action for Puerto Rico Relief and Rebuild

Hosted by Taller Bombalele - Bomba Dance Classes

Join us at the Oakland Ronald V. Dellums building on Wednesday 10/4 at 4:30pm as we join in on a National Day of Action calling on the US Federal Government and calling out vulturous corporate hedge funds on their greed! We are taking collective action to protest the slow acting relief and aid response of the government in a time of crisis in Puerto Rico! 

Long before Puerto Rico was hit by Hurricanes Irma and Maria, Puerto Rico has been suffering from a different kind of storm, caused by a public debt crisis which has made life harder and harder for Puerto Ricans on the island in recent years.

Now after Irma and Maria we must make sure to support and make sure there are resources for relief and rebuilding. But the storm created by the debt crisis started long before and will continue long after.  

What Puerto Ricans need is RELIEF from the harm the debt crisis and its so-called "solutions” have caused so far and the means to REBUILD an economy where all families can prosper.

The U.S. federal government needs to send Puerto Rico all the aid it needs, IMMEDIATELY and without strings attached. It must suspend the Jones Act requirements that have made shipping aid to Puerto Rico more difficult.

On the day Category 5 Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, hedge fund creditors were filing motions in the courts to get their debt repaid. Instead of thinking about how the island would need resources for the immense rescue, recovery and rebuilding efforts it faces in the coming months, the banks that have profited from the debt crisis expect to get more.

Other cities participating:
Boston, MA-12noon, JFK Federal Building, 15 Sudbury Street
Hartford, CT - 12noon, Santander Bank, 115 Asylum Street
New York, NY - 12 noon, Foley Square, Manhattan
Philadelphia, PA - 12 noon, Santander Bank, 1500 Market Street

Press Conference for Richard Perkins newly released Autopsy Report
Mar

Press Conference for Richard Perkins newly released Autopsy Report

  • 90th Avenue and Bancroft Oakland, CA (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

On November 15th, 2015, Richard Perkins became the final victim of an Officer Involved Shooting in Oakland last year.  While watching a side show, Mr. Perkins attempted to show OPD officers that he had a replica toy pellet gun.  He was shot to death in response.  Four months later, the family of Richard Perkins had not received the coroners report – a critical piece of evidence that can either support, or dispute the claims of OPD.  After threatening community action, the report was released to APTP and the Perkins family on March 8th.

On Tuesday, March 15th, at 9:00 am on the corner of 90th and Bancroft (Where Richard was murdered), APTP will host a press conference in partnership with families that have lost loved ones to police terror and celebrate this recent victory while also raising critical questions about collusion between the sheriff’s office and Alameda County police departments to hide evidence from families who have lost loved ones to state sponsored violence.

“We don’t understand why it takes community pressure to force the coroner’s office to release the reports,” said Cat Brooks of APTP. “These families are already suffering a great loss and grieving their loved one.  They rightfully want to know what happened and that report is critical in putting the pieces together.”

Yet time and time again, the coroner’s office – which is essentially the sheriff’s office – delays getting this report to the families.  Yuvette Henderson was murdered by the Emeryville Police Department in February of 2015. Eight months later, it took APTP in partnership with Henderson’s family, to force them to release the report.  Similarly in the case of Alan Blueford who was murdered by OPD on May 6, 2012, the community had to demonstrate at the Sheriff’s office to get the report released to family.

“They know that these reports are critical pieces of evidence,” said Dan Siegel, head legal counsel for APTP.  “The longer they delay giving it to the family, the longer it takes to assess the wrongdoing on the part of OPD.” 

Friday’s press conference is also the launch of APTP’s campaign for more accountability and transparency with the Sheriff’s office in relation to reports following Officer Involved Shootings.  APTP will make the following demands:

 

-       Provide families that are victims of police violence the coroner’s report within 30 days

-       Investigate collusion between the Sheriff’s department and the Oakland Police Department

-       Recall Sheriff Greg Ahern who has a long list of egregious behaviors

-       Release the ENTIRE video series to the Perkins family and their legal counsel

-       Bring in an outside investigator to investigate the murder of Richard Perkins.

 

Ada Henderson, Richards mother and Jamison Henderson, Yuvette’s brother will speak at the press conference.

We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.
— (1963) Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Over the last year, in the Bay Area alone, there have been dozens of police murders.  In San Francisco, we have most recently seen the brutal execution of Mario Woods, in addition to police beating a disabled man in front of the Twitter building and racist text messages exchanged between SFPD on-duty officers.   

In Oakland, we have seen a string of Black men murdered by police since only June of 2015. In fact, a recent graphic by Mapping Police Violence shows that in 2015, Oakland ranks third in police killings per million people in 60 of America's largest cities.


“Police are the shock troops of gentrification,” said Cat Brooks, co-founder of APTP.  “Mayors give them a mandate: make this city appealing to developers by any means necessary.  City Councils fund police and constantly seek to expand their numbers and their powers.  As a result, people of color are being pushed out of cities at unprecedented rates, by an out of control rental market, increased police occupation and terrorism against communities of color, as well as crackdowns on those who dare protest these unjust policies as we saw with Mayor Schaaf’s recent attempts at imposing a curfew.”

A year ago, people across the country began taking to the streets in unprecedented numbers; storming shopping centers, blocking streets and highways, interrupting cultural events and public transit.

“The people shut it down because there is a state-sponsored war on Black, Brown, and other marginalized peoples in the United States,” said Tur-Ha Ak of Community Ready Corps. “They shut down business as usual because business-as-usual is an out-of-control epidemic of police terror.”

Last year, in partnership with comrades and allies, APTP launched 96 Hours of Direct Action in the Bay Area, and answered a national call to Reclaim King’s Radical Legacy which we did
through a march that brought over 7,000 people into the streets of Oakland.  We believe it is important for our movement to draw on King’s legacy to ground ourselves, to reinforce our conviction and confidence in the tactics and strategy of disruptive direct action.   

A year later, while we are starting to have an impact, we also see that we have a long long way to go. So this Martin Luther King Day weekend, APTP has called for the Second Annual 96 Hours of Direct Action and Reclaiming King’s Radical Legacy March.  For four days, hundreds of community members from over two dozen groups in both Oakland and San Francisco will unleash a spectrum of disruptive and creative activity. In the spirit of MLK, these actions will
meaningfully interrupt business as usual whether that be with direct action, teach-ins, concerts or prayer vigils.


THIS WEEKENDS SCHEDULE:


Friday 1/15: Communities in Oakland and San Francisco will hold actions calling out the rampant gentrification occurring on both sides of the bridge

Saturday 1/16: The Oakland Community will call out the many forms of state terror occurring in The Town

Sunday 1/17: The people will unite in San Francisco to call out state terror, economic terror and the corrupt city governments that allow it to continue

Monday 1/18: Reclaim King’s Radical Legacy March from Oakland to Emeryville


THIS WEEKEND’S DEMANDS INCLUDE:

· The resignation of Mayor Libby Schaaf

·
The immediate termination of Chief Sean Whent

·
The immediate termination of Chief Greg Suhr

·
The immediate termination of the officers involved in the murders
of Richard Perkins, Mario Woods, Yuvette Henderson, Amilcar Lopez, Alex Nieto,
Demouriah Hogg and Richard Linyard


Respect our Sanctuary Cities. ICE Out Oakland and San Francisco! No deportations. No Arrests

·
The immediate reallocation of city budgets: reduce police budgets
and reallocate those funds to provide for affordable housing that allows Black,
Brown and other people of color to remain in San Francisco and Oakland.


Monday, we will connect the dots between police violence and economic violence – specifically gentrification - with a march at 11 am from Oscar Grant Plaza (14th & Broadway), where the Oakland community has come to call home to civil disobedience and protests.  The march will weave its way through West Oakland where Black residents continue to be displaced at an alarming rate and through Emeryville where Yuvette Henderson was brutally murdered by the Emeryville Police Department and into the Bay Street Mall which is located on a sacred Ohlone Burial Ground; yet another example of how capitalism discards humanity for profit – specifically the humanity of of Black, Brown and Indigenous Peoples.

We must rapidly begin the shift from a thing-oriented society to a person-oriented society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights, are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.”
— (1967) Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
