CALL TO ACTION!
PICKET LINE AND NEWS CONFERENCE FOR AARON CAMPBELL
PROTEST THE REINSTATEMENT OF OFFICER FRASHOUR
10:30 AM Tuesday, Sept. 25 2012

Supporters of the Albina Ministerial Alliance Coalition for Justice and Police
Reform:

The AMA Coalition is calling for the community to come together for an
emergency action tomorrow, Tuesday, Sept. 25, at 10:30 AM at City Hall (1221
SW 4th at Madison St) to protest the Employment Relations Board's decision
that the City of Portland must reinstate Officer Ron Frashour, who shot Aaron
Campbell in the back in 2010. We will hold a picket line at 10:30, with a news
conference at 11 AM, with other actions to be announced on site.

The Employment Relations Board found the City of Portland violated the
Portland Police Association contract and state law by refusing to reinstate
Officer Frashour. (Even though the Portland Police Association is claiming
they found Frashour's actions were within Bureau policy, which is not what the
decision was about.) The Mayor has pledged to appeal the decision in a court
of law, if he gets City Council approval.

For more information contact the AMA Coalition via Vice Chair Pastor T Allen
Bethel, 503-288-7241 or  AMAlliance@aol.com .
