Emergency Action Against Police Brutality
Police Brutality is an ongoing problem not only in San Francisco but in all cities across the US. It's usually inflicted on working class and poverty class (jobless and homeless) people and mostly in Black and Brown communities.
This is a response to San Francisco police brutally assaulting peaceful marchers and demonstrators on two recent occasions. The first was on 3/16/09 at the Tristan Anderson/Palestine Solidarity Rally at the Israeli Consulate, and then on 3/21/09 during the 6th anniversary of the Iraq War/Occupation near and at the Civic Center.
The SFPD will be held accountable when they harass, terrorize, and use brutal force on the public. It's not only an extreme abuse of power, but also an usurpation of our First Amendment rights. We demand that these recent acts of police brutality be addressed and denounced not only by the SFPD, but also by local government and city officials in order to inspire public confidence concerning the protection of constitutional rights and the health and safety of our communities.
