Saturday, September 18, 10am - March & Rally to Demand Justice for Manuel Jamines!

Stop Police Killings! Justice for Immigrant Workers!

Gather 6th & Union Ave., Los Angeles

March to City Hall (1st and Spring St.)

Join community organizations and individuals for a mass March and Rally on Saturday, Sept. 18 to demand justice for Manuel Jamines. The LAPD murder of Manuel Jamines has sparked outrage in the Guatemalan immigrant community. Hundreds of people have protested the cold-blooded murder every day since it happened. And the LAPD has unleashed violent, unprovoked repression on the community—beating and arresting people, handing over undocumented workers to ICE, and firing rubber bullets into crowds, leaving many bloodied and injured. They are continuing to attack the community on a daily basis.

Mayor Villaraigosa and the LAPD leadership have defended the killing of Jamines. They have promised a “fair investigation,” while at the same time calling the police officer who pulled the trigger “heroic” and “brave.” But the facts speak otherwise. LAPD officer Frank Hernandez, who killed Jamines, has been put on forced leave twice before for shooting people. Witnesses to the Jamines killing have come forth saying he had no knife in his hand when he was shot twice in the head.

Police violence against immigrants and poor people will keep happening unless we get organized and fight back. Come to march from the place where Jamines was killed to City Hall. Justice for Manual Jamines!

We demand: Arrest LAPD officer Frank Hernandez for murder! - An independent investigation into the killing! - Community control over the police! - No more raids, racial profiling or police violence targeting oppressed communities!

Initiated by Unión de Guatemaltecos Emigrantes en EEUU (UGE), Vamos Unidos USA, ANSWER Coalition and the Full Rights for Immigrants Coalition. Endorsed by FUPA, Echo Park Community Coalition, Bantay Filipinos, CISPES, Coalition for Peace and Democracy in Honduras, PSL and others.

Manifestación y Mitin

¡Justicia para Manuel Jamines!

¡Alto a los asesinatos policíacos! ¡Justicia para los trabajadores Inmigrantes!


Sábado 18 de septiembre, 10am

Congregarse en 6 y Unión, Los Ángeles

Marcha hacia la Alcaldía (Calles 1era y Spring)

Únete a las organizaciones comunitarias y personas particulares en una Manifestación y Mitin para exigir justicia para Manuel Jamines. El asesinato de Manuel Jamines a mano de oficiales del Departamento de Policía de Los Ángeles (LAPD) ha desatado repudio en la comunidad inmigrante guatemalteca. Cientos de residentes se han manifestado ininterrumpidamente todos los días en contra de este asesinato a sangre fría.

El LAPD ha desatado una ola de violenta represión en contra de la comunidad—golpeando y arrestando a residentes del área, entregando trabajadores indocumentados a el Departamento de Inmigración (ICE), y disparando balas de goma en contra de las manifestaciones. Esto ha resultado en muchas heridas graves; todos los días la comunidad continua sufriendo loas embates de la policía

El Alcalde Villaraigosa y el Departamento de la policía han salido públicamente a defender a oficiales que asesinaron Jamines. Ellos han prometido una “investigación justa,” pero a la misma vez han presentado a los policías asesinos de Jamines como unos “héroes” y “muy valientes.” Pero la realidad habla por si sola. El Oficial de LAPD Frank Hernández, quien mató a Jamines, ha sido suspendido dos veces más anteriormente por matar a otras personas. Un testigo que presencio el asesinato de Jamines ha testificado de que él no tenia ningún cuchillo cuando le dispararon en la cabeza.

La violencia policiaca en contra de los inmigrantes y el pueblo pobre continuará con impunidad, a menos, de que nos organicemos y luchemos en contra de ellos. Ven y manifiéstate con nosotros, saldremos de donde mataron a Jamines y marcharemos a la Alcaldía. ¡Justicia para Jamines!


¡Arresto inmediato del oficial Samuel Hernández por asesinato!

¡Una verdadera investigación independiente del asesinato!

¡Control comunitario de la policía!

¡No más redadas, perfil racial o violencia policiaca contra la comunidad!

Convocan: Unión de Guatemaltecos Emigrantes en EEUU (UGE), Vamos Unidos USA, the ANSWER Coalition and the Full Rights for Immigrants Coalition. Apoyada por: FUPA, Echo Park Community Coalition, Bantay Filipinos, CISPES, Coalición por la Paz y la Democracia en Honduras el PSL y otros. Para más información llama a La Coalición o Derechos Plenos del Inmigrante: 213-746-6264 o Coalición ANSWER: 213-251-1025.
