      COMMUNITY FORUM FOR ANDREW MOPPIN

      Wednesday, February 4th

      Intertribal Friendship House,
      523 International Blvd Oakland, CA 94606

      TIME: 6:30 PM

      On Wednesday February 4, 2009, Intertribal Friendship House will host a community forum in response to the continued police brutality as made light in the recent shooting of Oscar Grant III. One year earlier, another fatal police shooting took place on New Years
      Eve. On December 31st at 7:33 PM, officers of the Oakland Police Department fatally shot Andrew Moppin in the back. Andrew Moppin (Comanche/Klamath), a young unarmed 20-year-old man, had a $411 warrant out for his arrest for evading BART fare. Six months
      after Officer Hector Jimenez shot and killed Andrew Moppin, Jody "Mack" Woodfox III, 27, was also fatally shot in the back by the same officer of the Oakland Police Department. He was also found to be unarmed. The fatal shootings of Andrew Moppin, Jody "Mack"
      Woodfox III and Oscar Grant III are not isolated incidents and a reality in our communities of continued police brutality. Speakers will share a list of demands including:

      1) Officer Hector Jimenez be taken off paid administrative leave for shooting of two unarmed men of color and held accountable

      2) The resignation of District Attorney DA Tom Orloff.

      3) That the U.S. Justice Department investigates the incident as a violation of civil rights;

      4) Family Members and Friends of the Moppin and Woodfox families and all those that have been affected by police brutality have access to Healing Justice resources that are
      culturally sensitive to their needs.

      5) Accountability on why it took one year to release the police report detailing the incident of the shooting of Andrew Moppin.

      Dinner and banner making supplies will be provided.
