Sat Oct 19 2013 (Updated 10/20/13)Families and Supporters Demand "Fuck That! No More Killing!"
Sat Oct 19 2013 (Updated 10/20/13)2013 National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality & Criminalization of a Generation
On the morning of October 22nd, supporters and members of some 50 families of those executed by California police will converge on Sacramento as part of the National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation. They will demand an end to police violence from California Attorney General Kamala Harris. They will demand proper investigations into their loved ones' deaths — not whitewashes performed by police investigating themselves and District Attorneys refusing to thoroughly investigate the police.
The event is being organized across multiple channels, including families of victims, The Stop Mass Incarceration Network, and Anonymous. One of the key organizing groups is the Duenez family and supporters. Ernesto Duenez Jr. was gunned down on June 8, 2011, in Manteca, California, in what many have called a police execution. John Moody, who killed Duenez, was cleared of the shooting of Ernesto Duenez Jr. on December 13, 2012 by the county District Attorney, just a day before the police video of the incident was released to the public. And so, with essentially no check, police murders and assaults continue; the ranks of those killed are added to in the United States at an unparalleled pace.
After the rally In Sacramento, there will be another in Oakland at 2:30pm at 73rd and International Blvd. and one at 4:30pm at the Fruitvale BART Station. There will also be events held in Fresno, Hayward, Redding, Los Angeles, San Diego, and other cities in California and across the United States.
