Murderers not welcome in our town!

This Tuesday Salinas Police Chief Kelly McMillin will be in Santa Cruz for an event at Bookshop Santa Cruz featuring Julia Reynolds and her book "Blood in the Fields."

We are creating a public presence to say LOUD AND CLEAR that the Salinas police chief who oversaw the killings of four Latino men in four months is not welcome in our community.

Kelly McKillin' has been actively justifying the murders, one of which took our dear friend and fellow activist Frank Alvarado.

***Bring signs, banners, your friends and fam & meet in front of the entrance! If you have questions, feel free to contact Sin Barras via email: sinbarras [at] gmail.com
