Report on Oct 22 National Day of Protest events

National Office of the October 22nd Coalition for a National Day of Protest
to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation

"Albuquerque, New Mexico: 50 people from New Mexico Vecinos United, Food not Bombs, the UNM Hemp Coalition, the UNM Progressive Student Alliance, Latinos Unidos, and more, marched from the University of New Mexico to the Albuquerque Police Department. They demanded that the Mayor's Office meet with them about a police officer that the police department refused to dismiss, and that they get a civilian review board. They were granted the meeting and won the civilian review board. Press refused to cover them, and refused to acknowledge that they were part of a National Day of Protest."
