East L.A. Sherrifs Harass Organizers: Justice for Salvador Zepeda



On Wednesday February 18th, 2009 members of the October 22nd Coalition and Cop Watch Los Angeles - GC / Revolutionary Autonomous Communities were doing outreach in the East Los Angeles Community, for the vigil that will take place Saturday, February 21st for Salvador Zepeda who was murdered in cold blood by the Sheriffs on November 30th, 2008. In the same community where Salvador (Chava) was killed, the same sheriffs that murdered him continue to harass and intimidate the community. When passing out fliers we witnessed Officer Subler go up to a young Chicano and harass him after he was given a flier for the vigil, at a nearby gas station. The officer asked him what he had in his hand and continued to ask him questions about it. When we started to film and observe he came up to the young woman who is a member of the October Coalition and begin to intimidate her and pulled on her bag, trying to get her bag which contained fliers for the vigil. After we filmed him he wanted to get our names and birthdates and threaten to detain us for filming him. He later left after giving us his name, and after he saw that we knew our "rights."

People in the community have called us and told us that the intimidation and harassment has been growing, and we see this as a means to scare them from coming out to the vigil to demand justice for Chava, and for the terrorism that they're living under on the daily basis in their neighborhood. It is important that people come out to the vigil on February 21st at 5pm, to show solidarity and support the families in this community. We need to continue to build a popular movement against the violence that is coming down from the state on our working class communities of color.

The pot luck that was supposed to happen Friday February 20th has been canceled and we will meet on the day of the vigil at 3pm.

Para toda la Gente Anarquista de Color que se han estado preguntando que honda con Los Ángeles

Están invitadxs a una reunión social informal para conocer, comer, hablar, conectarse y planear con Gente de Color Anarquista de la localidad. Nos gustaría que este fuese un espacio cómodo exclusivamente para la Gente de Color con políticas e intereses situados dentro de una política anti-autoritaria. Juntamente con esto, queremos darle prioridad a las mujeres, queers, trans, inmigrantes, gente con desabilidades y gente de la clase trabajadora. No tenemos una agenda pre-formada, pero nos gustaría discutir nuestro rol como Gente Anarquista de Color en la Feria del Libro Anarquista de Los Ángeles que se aproxima este Diciembre 13 del 2008. Se ha designado un espacio solamente para que la Gente Anarquista de Color, de la área y de fueras, se reúnan y tengan platicas. También habrá un panel para ser presentado a todxs lxs que atiendan la feria, lo cual seria un buen tema a discutir cuando nos reunamos en este primer encuentro. Hemos esta en contacto con otrxs Gentes Anarquistas de Color, especialmente aquellxs del Sur Oeste de los Estados Unidos, y se están haciendo esfuerzos para organizar una reunión regional de Gente Anarquista de Color en el futuro. Por favor vengan, comamos y platiquemos sobres estas cosas y sobre otros temas que nos interesen como Gente Anarquista de Color!

(English Version)
To all those who consider themselves Anarchist People of Color,
To all POC who have been curious about Anti-authoritarian praxis & APOC,
To all APOC who have been wondering what is up in Los Ángeles,

You are invited to an informal, social get-together to meet, eat, talk, connect & plan with other local APOC. We would like this to be a safe space exclusively for people of color, whose politics and interests lie within anti-authoritarian politics. Along with that is our simultaneous prioritizing of women, queer, trans, immigrants, people with disabilities and from the working class. We have no pre-formatted agenda but would like to discuss our role as APOC in the upcoming Los Ángeles Anarchist Bookfair taking place on December 13th, 2008. An APOC-only caucus segment has been reserved for local and out-of-town APOC to gather and hold discussions. There is also an open panel for all LA Anarchist Book fair attendees and this may be a good topic to discuss when we meet. We have been in touch with other APOC, especially those from the US SouthWest and there is an effort to organize a regional APOC gathering at some point. Please do come, let's eat and chat about all this stuff and other APOC matters!

Saludos libertarios,
