Occupy Denver’s General Assembly has endorsed the following event.
What: West Denver Copwatch – Know Your Rights Training
When: July 9, 2012 from 5:30pm to 6:30pm
Where: Van Cise-Simonet Detention Facility
On July 9th 2010, Street Preacher Marvin Booker was murdered by 5 Sheriff’s Deputies in the Van Cise-Simonet Detention Facility. The Denver community has rallied behind the Booker family, working hand in hand with love and resistance against the Denver police and Sheriff’s departments to end their reign of terror and brutality in our streets. Our Denver and Aurora communities have fought a long, ongoing battle against these injustices, and we will continue to organise, fight, and protect ourselves against this occupational force.
Two-years after the brutal murder of Marvin Booker, with the Denver and Aurora police continuing to threaten, brutalize, and murder our friends, neighbors, and families, we will hold a Know Your Rights Training outside of the building where Marvin Booker was murdered, to kick-off a month of solidarity against police.
