When is enough, enough? The murder of 13 year old Andy Lopez and the murder of thousands of people across this nation by police officers is yet another reminder that we must seriously continue to fight for the safety of our community. Each year thousands of people are murder by well paid police and justice is rarely served. These extrajudicial killings are yet another reminder that the police in the united states serve and protect the interest of the white and rich communities.

In addition, politicians try to bamboozle our undocumented youth by creating pipelines to their imperialist wars with gimmicks such as the military components of the Dream Act. Across our communities, the military complex continues to recruit our youth at alarming rates in order to fill up the war front lines. Our love ones are sent across the globe to kill Third World people or die in vain while the rich and corporations reap the profits of war. If they make it home nearly 1 out of 4 will come back with PTSD and about 40 percent will come back battling alcoholism. We say ya basta!

Join us on November 2nd 2013 as we remember the lives that have been stolen from us in our community at the hands of these police officers.

Help us develop our community altar with images and items to commemorate people that have been stolen frin through police low intensity warfare abroad and at home.

We will also continue our practice of Assemblea/ assembly to discuss what community justice looks like and how we can defend and move against violence in our community.
