From the event organizers
We have made this Facebook event by request of the Oakland Tech Students Leaders Organizing the George Floyd Solidarity March taking place on June 1st.
PLEASE MARK YOURSELF AS GOING TO THE STUDENT LED FB EVENT: https://www.facebook.com/events/266858108006519/
Justice for George Floyd!
On Monday at 4pm we will gather at Oakland Tech and march to the Oakland police department. This is a non-violent march for our entire community and families. We will not be destroying anything.
We are not seeking any legislative changes, so called reforms, or changes of heart by those in power. We will march to show solidarity with George Floyds family, and the Black community at large who fall victim to the systemic racism and barbarity of the police gang in America. This is a march for everyone who is opposed to the racism of our society.
This is a march to say, “Oakland stands with you”! We cannot allow incidents like this to continue. We must pick up the fight where others have left off until we transform our society. We have had enough
Please wear a mask, bring water, snacks and maintain 6 feet of distance at all times. More safety tips below.
*Per request of the students THIS WILL BE A PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATION*
—East Bay DSA safety reccomendations: —-
1) Shelter-in-place and complete isolation are the only definite protections against COVID-19. If you are high-risk or suffer from chronic respiratory conditions, or are in close contact with somebody who is, we highly advise you consider sitting these protests out.
2)Bring a change of clothes! Change your clothes and shoes before re-entering your home if you have loved ones you do not want to expose. Immediately wash your clothes at the highest heat possible.
3)Shower immediately when arriving home.
Wear face coverings, only well fitting and properly tightened N95 masks will keep COVID-19 out, but anything helps. This is not about protecting yourself, but protecting your neighbors from from you!
4)Consider wearing gloves, either disposable ones that can be thrown away right after the action or ones that can be immediately washed or wiped down. Gloves will also encourage you not to touch your face.
5)Wear goggles (helps with the virus)
6)Practice physical distancing at least 6 feet apart
7)Stay calm and de-escalate tension with others around health practices. Encourage others to wear masks. We want to keep ourselves safe from the virus!
