Speak out against police abuse in Costa Mesa! Speak to the City Council, and the Human Relations Committee about Naui's unjust kidnapping, and the mistreatment of other July 4th Nike Town protesters!

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.

On Monday, July 15, at 6:30 PM, Naui and other

protesters will speak to the Costa Mesa City Council

regarding the incident. Please arrive on time to this

meeting, as public comments are heard at the


Also, on Wednesday, July 24, at 7:00 PM, we will speak

to the Costa Mesa Human Relations Committee

regarding the unjust treatment Naui and other

protesters received by the Costa Mesa PD.

Both meetings will take place at 77 Fair Drive, across

the street from the OC Fairgrounds, in Costa Mesa.

The Human Relations meeting takes place in the first

floor conference room of the city hall.

Please keep in mind that the parking situation and

traffic will be really bad, due to the Orange County

Fair, which takes place across the street.

For more information, please call (714) 303-0004, and

leave a message, or e-mail
