THE TRIAL: ALEX NIETO VERSUS THE SFPD, MARCH 1, 2016

For the past two years we have been community building for this rare event: The Trial: Alex Nieto versus The SFPD.

The time for history is now.

We invite you to an unprecedented action of love: join us for a massive community rally on TUESDAY, MARCH 1, 2016 AT 8:00 A.M., the morning that the federal trial for Alex Nieto begins. We will rally, share love, sing songs, make speeches, and show unbreakable unity at the United States federal courthouse in San Francisco’s Civic Center at 450 Golden Gate Avenue. Shot at 48 times and killed by the San Francisco Police Department, Alex Nieto was a family provider, college student, security guard, and a positive, peaceful community activist. Implementing Mahatma Gandhi’s TRUTH FORCE, we will use our limitless creativity and the court system to action for our integrity, humanity, and rights, the most basic of rights—our lives! We will no longer accept fear, degradation, and murder. Together we hold honor, action courageously, live consciously, believe in faith, and prove love. On TUESDAY, MARCH 1, we will chant in unity to enforce the United States Constitution—due process, equal protection, no unlawful takings. Years from now, you will be able to proclaim to your children and grandchildren that you were a positive part of the 21st century civil rights movement against police brutality and killings! So be there early, call in sick, walk out—SACRIFICE—because throughout the trial, we will make certain that justice prevails. We rally in power to enforce that which is beyond any constitution: AMOR FOR ALEX!

Speeches, poetry, and performances by Roberto Hernandez, Thea Matthews, SF Board of Supervisor John Avalos, Adriana Camarena, SF Poet Laureate Alejandro Murguia, Ben Bac Sierra, SF Board of Supervisors District Nine Candidate Edwin Lindo, Favi Estrella, Francisco Herrera, Equipto, Dregs One, Tony Robles, Father Richard Leslie Smith, AFT 2121 representatives, HOMEY, United Playaz, y mas!

Invite all your friends and relations to this historic event!
