Speak out against police abuse in Costa Mesa!
On July 4th, Naui Huitzilopochtli was kidnapped
(falsely arrested) by the Costa Mesa PD, for a crime
he did not commit.
At a peaceful demonstration against sweatshop labor
and corporate abuse at Nike Town, protesters were
attacked by three white males, who shouted racial
slurs, sexually derogatory statements, and threw
objects at them. In response, an unknown person
squirted the men with red paint, and fled the scene.
Naui was falsely arrested for "assault and battery."
Meanwhile, the attackers were allowed to remain free
of any charges. When protesters approached the police to file complaints against the attackers, they were threatened with arrest.
