6th Annual Reclaim MLK's Radical Legacy Rally and March


6th Annual Reclaim MLK's Radical Legacy Rally and March

Gather your friends and family. Reach out to your schools, unions, churches and other organizations. We're organizing for the 6th Annual Reclaim MLK's Radical Legacy Rally and March.

On Monday, January 20, the Anti Police-Terror Project will lead a mass mobilization of people from across the Bay Area starting at Oakland’s Oscar Grant Plaza, 14th and Broadway, for the 6th Annual March and Rally to Reclaim King’s Radical Legacy.

Join APTP for the 6th annual Reclaim Kings Radical Legacy March. For six years running, the APTP Reclaim MLK event has been the only MLK March in the city of Oakland and is looked to by hundreds of Oaklanders as one of the premiere events of the year; bringing together people across race, class and political ideology with a commitment to build a just and equitable Oakland that Dr. King would be proud of.

The MLK march demands are: Housing as a Human Right, Close the Camps, No School Closures, End Police Repression, Climate Justice, No More War.

For decades, MLK’s legacy has been whitewashed. Often portrayed as a passive figure, in truth he was a radical leader demanding rational change: an end to capitalism, to war, to empire, to poverty, and to white supremacy. Communities in Oakland and across the country take this opportunity every year to celebrate the true spirit of this revolutionary.

“January 2020 marks another 10 years of gentrification, displacement, and a worsening houselessness crisis. Another 10 years of the Bay Area’s elected leaders putting profits over people. Another 10 years of government for and by developers, tech companies, and banks – instead of for and by the People.” said Cat Brooks, former Oakland mayoral candidate and co-founder of the Anti Police-Terror Project.
