Vecinos para la Justicia para Amilcar tendrán una vigilia y marcha en honor de Amilcar Perez-Lopez, matado por policía de San Francisco (SFPD) el 26 de febrero, 2015.

El viernes, 24 de abril, en nombre de la familia de Amilcar, el abogado Arnoldo Casillas presentará una demanda civil en contra de la Ciudad de San Francisco y los oficiales de policía Craig Tiffe y Eric Reboli quienes mataron a Amilcar Perez-Lopez a unos pocos pies de su hogar. A las 11 de la mañana habrá una conferencia de prensa en lo cual Casillas revelará información que contradice de una manera dramática a la narrativa de la policía de la noche que dispararon y mataron a Amilcar.

Creemos que la policía de San Francisco (SFPD) esta involucrado en un encubrimiento de los hechos para evitar la responsabilidad criminal y civil por la matanza de Amilcar Perez-Lopez. Unete con nosotros para para expresar el dolor por esta trágica pérdida en nuestra comunidad, resistir las fuerzas de desplazamiento y aburguesamiento, y DEMANDAR JUSTICIA para Amilcar.

Seremos guiados en la vigilia y la marcha por los Danzantes Xitali.

David Campos, nuestro supervisor representando el Distrito 9 de San Francisco, e inmigrante guatemalteco, estará con nosotros en la vigilia.

6:00pm - empieza la vigilia en el lado este de la Folsom entre las calles 24 y 25, en el sitio de la tragedia
6:30pm - empieza la marcha
7:00pm - Paremos en la estación de policia de la mission (630 Valencia)
La marcha terminará en la iglesia St. John the Evangelist Episcopal (Calle 15 entre
Mission y Valencia)

**Favor de traer velas. Las pondremos frente la estación de policía de la misión como símbolo de la trágica pérdida de Amilcar y otras víctimas de violencia policiaca en San Francisco**

Neighbors for Justice for Amilcar are holding a vigil and march in honor of Amilcar Perez-Lopez, killed by SFPD on February 26, 2015.

On Friday, April 24th, on behalf of Amilcar's family, Attorney Arnoldo Casillas will file a civil lawsuit against the City of San Francisco and officers Craig Tiffe and Eric Reboli who killed Amilcar Perez-Lopez mere feet from his home. At 11:00am Casillas will hold a press conference and reveal information that dramatically contradicts the police narrative of the events of the night Amilcar was shot and killed.

We believe SFPD is involved in a cover-up of facts to avoid criminal and civil accountability for the unlawful killing of Amilcar Perez-Lopez. Join us that evening to mourn this tragic loss in our community, resist the forces of gentrification, and DEMAND JUSTICE for Amilcar.

We will be led at the vigil and march by the Danzantes Xitlali.

David Campos, our Supervisor representing San Francisco's District 9, and fellow Guatemalan immigrant, will join us at the vigil.

6:00pm - Vigil begins on the East side of Folsom between 24th and 25th, at the site of the shooting
6:30pm - March begins
7:00pm - Stop at Mission Police Station (630 Valencia)
March will end at St. John the Evangelist Episcopal Church (15th St between
Mission and Valencia))

**Please bring votive candles. We will lay these down at the Mission Police Station to symbolize the loss of Amilcar and other victims of police violence in San Francisco.**
