Free Eric Oliver - National March
in Bronson, FL
Saturday, July 7
10:00 am - Assemble across from the Levy County Jail. 10:30 am - March to the Levy County Courthouse
It's Trayvon Martin all over again except this time the victim is in jail for fighting back! On June 12, a white mob led by Chris Milton came to the home of 18-year-old Eric Oliver and his family and demanded that they send out 16-year-old Mikey Vasquez so they could attack him.
Although Eric’s wheelchair-bound mother asked them to leave, they attacked young Mikey. Eric jumped up to protect Mikey, his mother and the other children at the home. In the fight, the white men who came to take the 16-year-old got beat up.
After this, one of the white women in the mob yelled “Nigger, you’re going to jail!” and called the police.
Now Eric is in jail charged with aggravated battery and being held under $100,000 ransom for defending himself and his family while the white man who led the mob there and attacked the teens is free!
We have to stand against this injustice! Eric has the right to STAND HIS GROUND to protect his family and home!

Attention: State Attorney William Cervone
You can say this: I have become aware through the International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement of the frame up, arrest, and continued incarceration of Eric Anthony Oliver, a young Black Man, in Bronson, Florida. The circumstances of this young man's arrest is outrageous. As you are probably aware Eric was arrested on June 12, 2012 while defending his family and friends from a white mob the encroached on he and his mother's home.
This is Trayvon Martin all over again, except the victim survived this time. This mob attacked a 16-year-old young man but nobody from the mob has been arrested. If there was ever a stand your ground case this is it.
I agree with the demands of the International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement as follows:
1. All charges against Eric Antony Oliver must be dropped and a public apology made to him for this frame up
2. Reparations must be paid to Eric Anthony Oliver for his unjust arrest and incarceration
3. All officers associated with this arrest must be fired for this frame up
4. An immediate investigation of the Levy county Sheriff's office concerning their treatment of the Black community in Levy County must be held
