Saturday June 27th - Hundreds of protesters show up with cans of red paint painting the streets in front of the District Attorney's office. Sofia Alcala walked across the sea of red paint flowing across the asphalt and shouted "much more fucking accurate,” a reference to the values displayed on the building.
The crowd chanted, "Too Much Blood," referencing the deaths of members of the community who have died at the hands of police.
The organizers used the growing public outrage shown for George Floyd's death to shed light on the killing of Bernardo Palacios. They were able to receive crowds of allies because Floyd’s death brought national attention to police brutality. Their community is only able to seek justice for a brown person because a Black person died.
