Come march with family, friends, supporters, and comrades against the DPD and for justice for Chuy, and all victims of police violence. Meet up at the parking lot of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church at 810 W. Chapel Hill St., Durham at 5:30pm this Sunday, January 19th. There will be a vigil at the same church after the march.
If possible, please park in another location, as parking at the church is limited.
Bring your anger, your solidarity, your fierceness and your passion. Also welcome are drums, banners, and signs. And skateboards are totally awesome.

A statement in support of the march from Chuy’s sister can be read below, along with a flier to print and give to friends.
“This is a statement about everything that is going around and about my family: The Huertas. A lot has been said about the March this Sunday– that we are not supporting the march. This is a lie. In no moment in time have we said we do not support it. Yes, it is true that we will not be able to make it due to unforeseen circumstances and situation. We thank the community for being with us every step of the way. We support both the peace vigil and peaceful march. The vigil is to remember and and love the memory of my brother. My mother has asked for everything to be peaceful. And the march is to make our voice be heard in all this pain; not just ours but all the injustices that have been made. SINCE WHEN DO WE NEED PERMISSION TO SPEAK OUR MINDS? SINCE WHEN DO WE NEED A PERMIT TO WRITE OR SAY WHAT WE THINK IS RIGHT OR WRONG? How many more young lives will have to be lost? We did not ask for this; we did not ask to go through all this. All we asked for was my brother and son to be brought back home. No one knows the pain that we have been going through. And we don’t imagine the pain that all those mothers and brothers have gone through. Once again: No Justice, No Peace…. Who do they PROTECT? WHO DO THEY PROTECT? WE ARE ONE. WE ARE A COMMUNITY STRONGER THAN EVER.
