Title: "DON'T Support the Salinas PD" Rally
START DATE: Saturday May 31
TIME: 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Location Details:
Alisal Street and Lincoln Avenue
Salinas, CA 93901
Event Type: Protest
A rally to support the Salinas Police Department has been organized for Sat. from 11am-2pm. This is a response to that rally. The Direct Action Monterey Network and our comrades in Salinas are mobilizing for a counter demonstration because a pro-cop rally in response to what's been going on is a pro-murder-of-Latino-farmworkers rally and can not be left unanswered.

This is not about specific cops or their personal attitudes and beliefs. This is about exposing the Salinas PD for being the violent, oppressive institution that it is. Their daily intimidation and harassment, as well as these recent murders, reinforces a racist, exploitative system. We are standing up to them, as well as to those members of the community who are voicing their support for such an institution.

Pro police posts will be deleted from this page*. No respect for "free speech" on this page for those who don't respect the value and dignity of those who face police violence.
