National Immigrant Solidarity Network and the ActionLA Coalition to LAPD Chief William Bratton, and to LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa:
TAKE FULL RESPONSBILITY TO THE MAY DAY MCARTHUR PARK POLICE ATTACK!
May 9, 2007
The National Immigrant Solidarity Network and the ActionLA Coalition are outrage by the vague comments and "actions" taken by the LAPD and the the Mayor after the May Day police attacks on the immigrant rights marchers at and around Mcarthur Park.
Videos footage and eye witness testimonies have shown that LAPD, not the so-called "small groups of anarchist" to blame of the violence. Furthermore, it's clear, from the eye witness accounts and past actions by the commanders and units present, that the May Day police attacks were not simply a "break" in command chain or few "bad apples" on LAPD, but was well coordinated action from the top of the command chain.
Therefore, we demand that LAPD chief William Bratton, and LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa: TAKE FULL RESPONSBILITY TO THE MAY DAY MCARTHUR PARK POLICE ATTACK! >> Read More
