Anti-Police Signs Not Allowed at Salinas March Against Police Brutality
Bradley Allen
Tensions are high in Salinas, an overwhelmingly Latino community on the central coast of California with a large number of farmworkers, where a demonstration was held on Sunday, May 25. Organizers reframed the ‘March Against Salinas Police Brutality‘ into a ‘March for Respect, Dignity and Justice,’ and worked extremely hard trying to control the entire messaging. For example, a woman living in Prunedale arrived at the pre-march rally in Closter Park in Alisal (East Salinas) with a small cardboard sign reading, “#FTP.” She was quickly approached by yellow-vested organizers and told she was not allowed to display her modest sign because it was not inline with the message and guidelines desired by the organizers.
