Every Oct. 22, people nationwide nonviolently protest police brutality and repression. 2010 marks the 15 th year of this action.

Albuquerque’s Copwatch is participating and organized a silent march and vigil to remember the people who’ve been shot by the Albuquerque Police Department. There have been 11 officer-involved shootings this year.

People will gather at Fourth Street and Roma at 3:30 p.m. Family members of Kenneth Ellis III
, the Iraq War veteran who was killed by police in January, will speak. The friends and relatives of Enrique “Kiki” Carrasco will also attend. At 4:30, the silent march will begin making its way up Central and end at Robinson Park on 8 th Street.

The event is also sponsored by Vecinos United, Young Women United and the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition.
