October 22nd National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality

 
Saturday, October 22nd will be the 10th Annual National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation. Police continue to brutally beat and kill people all over the United States, including in New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina. Muslim, Arab, and South Asian immigrants are still being arrested, detained, and deported. Every year, people wear black on October 22nd to remember people who have died at the hands of the police.

California Protests: In San Jose, people will gather for an 11am rally in Emma Prusch Farm Park, 947 S. King Rd., (near Story Rd.) in San Jose. Over a dozen people have been killed by law enforcement in Santa Clara County in the two years since Cau Bich Tran was fatally shot by the San Jose police in 2003. In Fresno, there will be a Vigil For Lives Stolen by Police in the Valley on Saturday at 5:30 pm, at the park in front of the Main Library, at the corner of Mariposa and N Street. On Sunday, October 23rd, "From Katrina to SF Bayview to San Quentin- Killed for Being Poor, Black, and Brown: Solutions and Healing" will take place in San Francisco at 3:00pm. On October 22nd, there will be a Copwatch conference in San Diego, starting by 9:00am. In Los Angeles, there will be a march-- organizers say, "It is time to hold the murdering police accountable for the stolen lives of our loved ones! We must stand up against this system’s war on the people here in Los Angeles and all over the world! It is time to demand justice for all Stolen Lives!" There will be a march to the police department in Santa Ana, gathering at noon at McFadden and Bristol.

There will also be October 22nd protests in Greensboro, North Carolina; New York City; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and other cities all over the country.
