Sat Oct 22 2011 (Updated 10/26/11)
National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality
October 22nd 2011 was the 16th National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation. In San Francisco protest took place at 12pm at 3rd St. and Palou in the Bayview, near where Kenneth Harding was killed this year, to draw attention to Harding's death as well as many other deaths at the hands of law enforcement. In Modesto, participants gathered at 2pm at the H St. Jail for a Day of Action Against Police Brutality. In Fresno, a No More Stolen Lives took place at 5 p.m. at Eaton Plaza (just east of the Fresno Police Department HQ) imc_photo.gifPhotos. Everyone at the protests, as well as supporters who can't make it, wears black in solidarity with people whose loved ones have died in custody. Local groups join together each year to write a national Call for a National Day of Protest that reflects what happened in that year, such as police killings, FBI repression of activists, attacks on immigrants, prisoner hunger strikes, and more. Local protests tend to focus on familiar cases from the area.
