WHY: October 22 is the 23rd annual National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation. Families of victims of police violence and community support groups are gathering outside the San Diego "Hall of Justice" to petition our government to redress the wrongs inflicted on too many.
No one is above the law. We come to demand justice for Raul Rivera, Alfred Olango, Earl McNeil, Victor Ortega, Sergio Weick, Jonathon Coronel, Frederick Jefferson, and hundreds of other dead or brutalized at the hands of San Diego law enforcement.
We demand an end to the District Attorney's relentless refusal to properly investigate civilian murders and injuries inflicted by local law enforcement.
We challenge San Diego City Council members to stop sabotaging community oversight of public servants and to sincerely work with residents to create a Commission on Police Practices that is independent, transparent & empowered to counter police brutality.
On October 22, we stand with the thousands around the country to demand community control.
On October 22, community organizations and survivors are hosting these Actions:
a Teach-In on Police Practices & Brutality at San Diego City Community College.
12:00PM Teach-in at San Diego City College, 1313 Park Boulevard
San Diego Coalition for Racial Justice and Activist San Diego 619-871-9354 email@example.com, www.facebook.com/ActivistSD/
Press Conference with Justice 4 Earl
4 PM, following Teach-In at San Diego City College
Rally and Candle Light March against with families and survivors of police brutality, City Heights
Overpass Light Brigade Action on the University Ave I-15 Overpass, after the Candle Light March
