Bringing Revolution to the Golden State Warriors NBA Championship Parade in Oakland

From a reader:

Tuesday, June 12, 2018. Hundreds of thousands of people lined the downtown Oakland streets for the NBA championship parade. From 7 to 10 am., while city crews were going through and taking down every flyer, leaflet, official or not, everyone saw a large paper banner that read “Champions.... 2015, 2017, 2018 Golden State Warriors” hanging at a major turn in the parade route. The city crews left it alone. Then, when the parade began, we ripped the paper banner down... revealing the very colorful banner saying “This system cannot be REFORMED—it must be OVERTHROWN!

It was too late for the city crews to take it down, as the crowd was simply too large by that time. Several in the crowd across the street shouted, “Look at that” with smiles. We didn’t notice any players pointing to the banner in agreement. But they could not miss it. Some family members/friends, etc. on other buses gave a big thumbs up on noticing the banner.


To be seen by all!
