Youth Rally against Police Brutality-Thursday, June 10, 6 pm @ Queen's Park

Protest the Racist Murder of Jeffrey
Reodica (May 6, 1987 - May 24, 2004)

Speakers: Coalition Against War and Racism; Young Left; Black Action
Defense Committee (Dudley Laws); Pueblo Unido; Philippine Network for
Justice and Peace.

Jeffrey Reodica is a 17 year old Filipino youth who was unarmed and shot in

the back three times by Metro Police on May 21st. He has been portrayed in
the media as a knife wielding gang member. This negative image is clearly
a tool to distract us from the truth, that this was a Racist Murder
by members of the Metro Police. If one young person is not safe, none of
us are safe. We need to stand up and defend our youth form becoming victims

in a city that is criminalizing them and targeting youth of color. --Chi
