Justice 4 Stephon “Zoe” Clark!
On Friday March 23 there will be another protest against the police murder of Stephan Clark. The protest will start at 07:00pm (19:00) on Florin & 29th St., Sacramento.
On the night of March 18th, Sacramento PD executed Stephon Clark in South Sacramento off of 29th St near the Meadowview Light Rail Station. Regardless of the claims made by police, this man did not deserve to be executed in cold blood. We now know that he was killed in his own backyard. We call for the killer cops who took Stephon Clark’s life to be jailed immediately!
This comes at a time when all over the country, the police are on a killing spree with no end in sight. This killing comes only a few weeks after Attorney General Jeff Sessions came to Sacramento to tell the police how great of a job they are doing.
A great job at having the highest number of police killings of any state (200+) last year?
A great job for deporting immigrants at alarming rates?
For militarizing working class communities? For expanding the already huge problem of mass incarceration and prison slavery?
Fitting the description is not a death sentance!
We say enough of the killing, jailing and underdevelopment of our communities. We want justice!
Join us for a candlelight vigil to mourn the victims of unpunished police killings and harrasment as we call for a fundamental change to this racist system.
