National Day against Police Brutality--October 22 Coalition

by LA October 22 Coalition Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2005 at 1:06 PM

Calling on all people of Los Angeles to come out and create a vision for the 10th Anniversary March against Police Brutality!!

National Day against...
o2204-009.jpg, image/jpeg, 576x479

This year, law enforcement in and around Los Angeles have stolen the lives of our children in outrageous manners, including 13 year old Devin Brown, 19 year old Bassim Chmait, and baby Suzie Peña. Down south, the government is applauding red neck vigilantes for their animal-like hunting down of immigrants struggling to feed their families. Around the country, thousands of South Asians or Muslims are still being arrested and detained without legal recourse. In New York, Juanita Young is persecuted by the D.A. on a bogus charge for her outspoken stance against police brutality. Lawyer Lynne Stewart, another outspoken activist, is subject to 45 years in prison for defending her client’s right to lawyer-client confidentiality. Even journalists are going to prison now for exposing government corruption, a blatant violation of the so-called “freedom of the press.”

These cases are all examples of the blatant police brutality pervasive in our neighborhoods nationwide, and the fascist repression of Bush & Company’s “Homeland Security.” This brutality happens to many of our brother and sisters on a daily basis, and is getting worse as we speak. But there is hope, and we must begin to fight back in defense of our families!

This year, on our 10th Anniversary March, October 22nd will be the day when families, victims, and all peoples can come forward and demand justice for our loved ones. It is time to hold the murdering police accountable for the stolen lives of our loved ones! We must stand up against this system’s war on the people here in Los Angeles and all over the world! It is time to demand justice for all Stolen Lives!

When: Saturday, October 22, 2005, at 1PM

Where: Broadway and Olympic in Downtown Los Angeles
