Anaheim, California and the Law of the Land
videos by Naui Ocelotl Huitzilopochtli
with commentary by Joseph Rose

On Saturday, July 21st, Anaheim, California police gunned down and killed 25-year-old Manuel Diaz, who was unarmed. Residents responded by protesting at the police station, but a peaceful protest became dangerous when police fired rubber bullets and let loose a police dog. Some children describe the events surrounding protest:

The next day Anaheim police shot and killed another young Latino, Joel Matthew Acevedo, who they claim was armed. Anaheim residents and Diaz's family continued to protest, demanding justice:

By the 24th, hundreds of protesters were confronting the city government and the APD, clashing with police:

As Anaheim plunged into unrest, police further militarized:

As protests in Anaheim rage on, we are left to wonder which city will be next. Every day we hear new stories about young men of color being targeted by police. But society is reaching a breaking point. People are tiring of constant surveillance, extra-judicial executions, and a government that exclusively serves the wealthy. Social movements and unrest are spreading across the country, and its time for us to pick a side.
