Alan Blueford, an 18-year-old African American student from Skyline High School, was shot and killed by Oakland Police Officer Miguel Masso on May 6, 2012. The Blueford family and JAB coalition strongly condemn the DA's report and reject all attempts to cover up their son's murder. We demand Masso be fired and prosecuted,
and all racial profiling practices, including stop and frisk, be stopped immediately!
Alan's mother, Jeralynn Blueford, "This is a march in honor of my son and others that has suffered police brutality. We are for change not violence and vandalism."
Austin activists gathered on Saturday to rally against the Austin Police Department's use of force and the racist criminal justice system. 147 years after the first Juneteenth celebration and the plight for Black people has remained the same, and for our sons and brothers, it has gotten worse.

The event was sponsored by Austin Center for Peace and Justice, International Socialist Organization (UT student branch), and Royal Civil Rights Society. Produced, filmed and edited by Grace Alfar. Directed by Jeff Zavala. A Zgraphix Production. http://ZGraphix.org Austin Indymedia http://austin.indymedia.org
