From October 25th -28th, 2013 in Oakland, Urban Shield will bring local, national and international law enforcement agencies together with “defense industry contractors” to provide training and introduce the newest weapons, to police and security companies. In reality, we know this means more police and state repression, more tragedy and more deaths - since these weapons are used primarily against our communities.
Come and hear about ways we can send a clear message to war profiteers and police that they must be accountable to the communities they are supposed to protect.
There will be lots of time for questions and conversation!
This is the second of a monthly series of Global Exchange get-togethers: Politics on Tap held at Café La Peña. Join us the 1st Thursday of each month for beer and other refreshments, and lots of good conversation.
