October 22nd, 2006- the 11th National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality
Thu Oct 12 2006 (Updated 10/27/06)
Protests and Vigils in SF, San Jose, Fresno, and Around the Country
Sunday, October 22nd was the 11th National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation. There were events in cities all over the country that day, with people wearing black and remembering the names of people who have been killed by law enforcement. A national imc_pdf.gifupdate to the book "Stolen Lives: Killed by Law Enforcement" was released on October 22nd. It includes hundreds of names and stories about people who have died at the hands of law enforcement since the year 2000. Streets and buildings in cities such as Los Angeles, San Diego, Pittsburgh, New York, and Atlanta echoed with the sounds of protest on October 22nd.
Organizers in San Francisco called for people will gather at 2pm at Haight and Stanyan. Some 400 people participated in a march to Jefferson Square Park, where speakers and performers talked about the issues that had brought them all together. imc_photo.gif Photos: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | imc_video.gif Video: 1 | 2
In San Jose, an indoor event was organized as a space where people whose loved ones have been murdered by the police; illegally arrested and wrongfully convicted and sentenced to decades in prison; or attacked and illegally arrested and given false charges could speak out.
In Fresno, people marched from Justice Corner to N street and Mariposa for a 5pm rally and vigil. Several events were held during the weekend to demand justice for the homeless in Fresno. imc_photo.gifPhotos and Report from Press Conference imc_photo.gif | Photos from October 22nd

Every day, people are killed by the police in cities and towns all around the US-- people whose eyeglass cases are "mistaken" for guns (such as Asa Sullivan in San Francisco), people who have suspected "bombs" in their backpacks, youth who play their car radios "too loudly," parents who shoplift baby formula, people whose bullet wounds in their backs show the lies that police tell about supposed "threats." These stories might appear on TV and in the print news for a few days and then they are buried, not allowed to stay long in the national consciousness. Since September 11, 2001, law enforcement agents (including border patrols) have been given greater license to increase and broaden repression. Torture, brutality, detentions, domestic spying, profiling, and other attacks on human and civil liberties have been made part of the routine of daily life that people in America are forced to accept without question. As all of this is going on, attacks on the homeless in Golden Gate Park are increasing. The October 22nd Coalition says, "We resist so that we will not be crushed. Our resistance gives other people courage." The National Day of Protest "aims to bring forward those most directly under the gun of police brutality AND to also... (bring) foward others to stand in the fight against this offical brutality...(it) aims to strengthen the peoples' organized capacity for resistance in a variety of ways." Call for the 11th National Day of Protest
