Riverside Womyn of Color for Decolonization Spearhead Oakland Solidarity Rally

RIVERSIDE (California) - In response to the vicious police raid on Occupy Oakland, Occupy Riverside, lead by Womyn of Color for Decolonization, who had just returned from Oakland, marched and rallied in solidarity.

At about 2:30 in the afternoon Friday, occupiers of Downtown Riverside's liberated territory joined with the Womyn of Color for Decolonization to express solidarity with Scott Olsen and all the other victims and survivors of the police state's violent eviction of our comrades in Oakland.

Having just returned from Oakland themselves, the WOC4D began by reading a statement of solidarity with Occupy Riverside.

From there, we marched down University to Market, chanting "What are they protecting? Not you, not me! End police brutality!" and "Shame on OPD!"

At Twelfth we hung a left and approached the Riverside police station. Upon arriving, we locked arms in a circle of solidarity and had a moment of silence for the victims in Oakland.

Afterwards, many people shared personal experiences of police brutality, violence, and harassment. One woman read off a list of names of people who had been shot (or shot at) by local law enforcement agencies in the past two months.

A courthouse worker came out and applauded us not just for occupying, but also for taking a stance against the carnage of the police state.

Another passerby, an activist attorney, also stopped to address us. She offered legal support and other avenues to participate in local movements for change.

All of this occurred under the watchful eyes of a lieutenant and several other officers, but they did not interfere with our peaceful protest.

Occupy Riverside continues to hold our position, and continues taking action targetting the 1% and, in this case, their protectors.
