Video: Statewide March Against Police Brutality in Anaheim


On Saturday July 21st around 1,000 people marched from Anaheim City Hall to the Anaheim Police Department to protest police brutality and shootings of unarmed citizens throughout California and also in solidarity with those seeking Justice for Trayvon Martin. Over 30 different families from all over the state, but mostly the Anaheim-LA area, spoke-out about the killing of their loved-ones by law enforcement officers. The protest was held one year after Anaheim police killed Manuel Diaz and Joel Acevedo, both unarmed, and sparked an uprising among community members that led Anaheim PD to shooting protesters with rubber bullets and unleashing a police dog on a peaceful group of men, women, and small children. Organizers plan to protest again on the National Day of Police Brutality Awareness, October 22nd, at the state capitol in Sacramento.
