Maybe this is already all over the blogosphere but just FYI: Geoffrey’s Inner Circle is holding an attention getter (aka press conference) on the steps of City Hall this evening at 5 p.m. to “voice concern about OPD’s destruction of the Black Entertainment District in Downtown Oakland.” The police are supposed to say a few words afterward. Geoffrey Pete decided to close Geoffrey’s Inner Circle on 14th after OPD started leaning on him after the last fight broke out in front the clubs entrance in January. But he had skirmishes with Jerry Brown back when the Attorney General was our mayor. More recently, I heard OPD blocked an event Geoffrey Pete was to host at Sweet’s Ballroom. We’re working on a larger story about the issue.
