Oakland CA: Homeless Women and Children Evicted by Oakland Police

Homeless Women Evicted from Village from Endangered Ideas on Vimeo.

This was posted to the East Bay DSA  page I am on. I couldn't share it from there but here is the post from the woman comrade who out it up. I think the meeting was yesterday but the video is an example of how the US treats its people. It is neither Muslims, ISIS, Iranians Mexican immigrants Central American gangmembers that are doing this but the most powerful legalised gang in the world, the US state and its security forces.  Housing (human shelter) is not or should not be a commodity and wouldn't in a civilized society. But capitalism is anything but civil.  RM

We really need people to come out to Oakland City Council tomorrow which  starts at 5:30pm to support our unhoused neighbors. Here is a video  showing the disgraceful destruction of the Housing and Dignity Village  in East Oakland last week, which was home to 13 women and children. The  City promised to hold off on this eviction until they could negotiate  with the residents and find them safe beds to go to, then showed up the  next day with 60 OPD officers and utterly destroyed everything. Let's  stand in solidarity with our unhoused comrades against the City of  Oakland!

In the small town that I live in next to Oakland, a one bedroom apartment can go for over $2000 a month. A closet can cost $1000 or more. This is state violence, state terrorism directed at working class people and disproportionately people of color. As is always the case as well, women, the aged and the very young are prime victims of this state terror.
