The Justice for Trayvon Martin contingent will be holding a Mass March Against Police Brutality, at Anaheim’s City Hall, on Sunday, July 21. 2013, at 1 pm. City Hall is located at 200 South Anaheim Blvd.
Event info from the organizers:
Since the bogus “not guilty” verdict in the trial of murderer George Zimmerman on Saturday, people have been in the streets every single day all over the country. We are witnessing the growth of a new movement against systemic racism.
The murder of Trayvon Martin and the daily killing of Black and Brown people by law enforcement are inextricably linked. The racist “justice” system refused to arrest Zimmerman until they were forced to after 44 days of protest. The police assisted Zimmerman the entire way–from drug testing Trayvon’s dead body but not Zimmerman, to leaking Trayvon’s school records to the press to slander his name, to even being the star character witness in Zimmerman’s trial. There was no desire on the part of the “justice” system to hold Zimmerman accountable, or to treat Trayvon Martin’s life like it mattered at all.
Similarly, police officers who have been witnessed gunning down innocent, unarmed people are completely immune to prosecution. Every 28 hours a Black person is killed by law enforcement. They are protected by the same “justice” system, that has proven time and time against that it considers our lives expendable.
Now is the time to build a movement against this systemic racism and brutality. The families of nearly 30 people killed or brutalized by the police are leading a Mass March this Sunday, July 21 in Anaheim. Below is a message from Genevieve Huizar, the mother of Manuel Diaz, who was murdered by Anaheim Police on July 21, 2012:
“The mothers and fathers of California, the mothers and fathers of Orange County, the mothers and fathers of Los Angeles, stretching beyond all borders stand in Solidarity with Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin… We are here praying for the families of police violence, we stand with you as you cry, we cry with you and for you, we know the pain you are feeling… The United States is outraged with you. We are in this struggle, and we will be marching for you as well on July 21.”
People from all over the state of California will be traveling to Anaheim on Sunday to show that we will stand up and fight back against the scourge of police violence and the “justice” system’s refusal to value the lives in poor and oppressed communities.
