Mon. JANUARY 19, 2015 UAPTSD'S #4MILEMARCH San Diego

Activist San Diego encourages your participation in a Martin Luther King Jr. day of community-based action. Honor King through action and by building the new civil rights movement!
Around the country there is a call for similar marches and rallies.

Please join United Against Police Terror - San Diego' with the Coalition Against Police Violence for the #4MILEMARCH, Monday January 19th at 1pm beginning in City Heights marching to the Malcom X Library.

The goal of every 4 Mile March in each city is the same: to bring awareness to the national epidemic of racial profiling and police violence, and to honor all the lives lost as a result. With each step, we will put pressure on the government to mandate laws that will hold police accountable for every illegal act they commit when violating the civil rights of not only American citizens, but every human being with whom they interact.

The 4 Mile March will take place on Monday, January 19, 2015, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in multiple cities nationwide.

Why march on this day?
There is no question that Martin Luther King, Jr. stood for justice and equality. We believe that he would fight for police reform and the right for fair treatment of all human beings if he were alive today. By marching on his Observance Day, we seek to both honor the legacy of Dr. King, and to remind the nation that the fight for justice and equality is far from over!

Posters are attached and available in 3 sizes. 7x5, 10x15, and 20x30 for download and print on in both black and white and in color.

Remember to connect what's happening at a national level is also happening in San Diego, The same issues that were exposed in Ferguson are in San Diego. The system of power, White Supremacy, is well and alive in San Diego, hurting marginalized communities. Let's make sure we seek justice for them. Let's end the occupation of our communities by Police.

This moment is a historic one — Ferguson is everywhere– and we are building a movement for justice for Mike Brown and an end to police violence nationwide. Just like people have done throughout American history, we are making our voices heard, taking to the streets and using our first amendment rights to engage in strong actions of civil disobedience.

Please let me know if you have any questions. There is little time for waiting, there is only time for action.

Always in search of justice,

Cathy Mendonca
