This note is making the rounds of Oakland neighborhood lists:
"Come take a "Stand for Oakland" with Residents, Merchants and Downtown Businesses who have been the silent majority.
"On Monday, residents of Oakland will make a peaceful, visual statement opposing the vandalizing and terrorizing of our city - costing millions of dollars in security and lost revenue and causing a forced re-prioritization of citizen calls, on an already strapped police force, due to downtown chaos and violence.
"Oakland is worth Standing up for. Look for the arm bands, and come get one: stand in solidarity with Oakland."
To join in this "Citizens March around the Plaza," come out:
Oakland City Hall, Frank Ogawa Plaza
