Oakland Marriott Convention Center



As a part of the Week of Education & Action to Stop Urban Shield in Oakland, join us as we converge on the Oakland Marriott! The Marriott manages the City Center for the City of Oakland, and that convention center will be the site of much Urban Shield activity. ENOUGH! Pushing the Marriott is our first step to Stopping Urban Shield in Oakland and ending Urban Shield war games entirely.

Friday, September 5th
Oakland Marriott Convention Center

Building on growing resistance to police militarization in the US, Bay Area community organizations and the Facing Tear Gas campaign have come together to call for Oakland’s non-participation in Urban Shield, community self-determination, and solidarity with global movements. Urban Shield is connected to national police militarization programs such as 1033, 1122, Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI) and DHS Fusion Centers. Stopping Urban Shield is one step to roll back police militarization.
