MASKS and SAFE DISTANCING; Peaceful rally action
Justice for George Floyd! Solidarity Rally in San Jose

Stand with us and demand justice for George! All power to the people!

The National Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression or NAARPR has called for a national day of action on the first day of the trial of Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis
police officer directly responsible for Floyd's death.

Derek Chauvin is the first of the four killer cops to stand trial for the murder of George Floyd. The trial is set to begin Monday, March 8 (with jury selection). The whole world witnessed the brutality that stole George Floyd’s life. People took to the streets in cities and towns in every state in this country to demand justice for him and for all those murdered by police.

On the first day of the trial, Minnesota organizers will hold a mass protest outside the Hennepin County Government Center. In solidarity with this action, LEAD, NAACP, MAIZ, NCUC, FRSO, NAARPR, and partners are holding a rally at San Jose City Hall to demand justice for George Floyd. Police brutality is an undeniable issue across the country, and
San Jose's own SJPD is no exception.

We must hold these killer cops accountable!

This trial is not only important for Minnesota, which has never seen a white police officer prosecuted for murdering a Black person. It is important for the entire country, which was set aflame in rebellion after Floyd’s murder. We will not rest until we see all four of George Floyd’s killers taken off the streets, and our communities have the power to decide who polices our communities and how our communities are policed.
