The Peace and Freedom Party has endorsed this event.

There will be a rally, starting at 5pm, on March 17, in front of the Richmond City Council, demanding justice for Pedie Perez, who was shot and killed by Richmond Police Officer Wallace Jensen on September 14, 2014 shortly after midnight. He had been asked to leave Sam's Liquor Store, due to alcohol intoxication and sit on the curb outside on the sidewalk. The officer had searched him and found no weapons. After some time, Pedie started to walk away without permission, then the cop wrestled him to the ground and put him in a vicious choke hold. Around this time, the cop shot him, claiming that Pedie was reaching for his gun. Multiple witnesses said he never reached for the cop's gun.

Demand that PO Jensen be fired from the Richmond Police Force and prosecuted for murder. A cop like this is not wanted in the Richmond community.
