URGENT: We are all Scott Olsen.

28 Oct
The violent police assault on Occupy protesters in Oakland left Iraq War Veteran Scott Olsen in critical condition with a cracked skull, and hundreds of others injured and sick. This is unacceptable.
It’s time for Oakland Mayor Jean Quan to do the right thing by Scott Olsen.
Because of public pressure, she is allowing Occupy Oakland protesters back in the public plaza — for now. But the Mayor, Police Chief and Oakland City Administrator must answer for the larger issue of the abuse of power, excessive force on unarmed protesters, and our right to free speech and assembly under the First Amendment.
Mayor Jean Quan should:

  • Fire the newly-installed interim Police Chief Howard Jordan for his mishandling of the entire operation.
  • Order the Oakland Police Department to release all records about the use of force.
  • Begin a thorough investigation into police misconduct and punish those responsible.
  • Allow peaceful protesters to remain in “Oscar Grant” Plaza, as is guaranteed by the First Amendment.

Please sign our letter to Mayor Quan of Oakland NOW.
Thank you.
