Coalition Accuses District Attorney of 22 Counts of Abuse of Power
Today, Friday, February 5th, downtown San Diego will witness a “Dump Dumanis” and Justice for Fridoon Nehad rally in front of the Hall of Justice on Broadway.
Dumanis, of course, is the District Attorney of San Diego County and Fridoon Nehad was the unarmed Afghan immigrant gunned down by a San Diego police officer in the Midway District last April.
From 4 to 5:30 pm, the coalition that has coalesced around Fridoon’s death along activists from several local organizations will rally and hold a press conference at the San Diego Hall of Justice to charge DA Dumanis with 22 counts of abuse of power. The Hall of Justice is located at 330 W. Broadway.
The Coalition accuses DA Bonnie Dumanis of abusing her power, withholding evidence, misleading the media, persecuting innocents under the guise of a “gang injunction” and having failed her public responsibilities related to the unjustified killing of Fridoon Nehad.
Local speakers will be joined by Jamala Rogers of Ferguson/St. Louis MO, where the people’s movement successfully ousted the Police Chief, the City Judge and the City Manager after the killing of Michael Brown.
Will SANDAG’s proposed sales tax increase serve your community’s needs?
By Monique López / Environmental Health Coalition
We all need to move. How we get from place to place is deeply connected to our quality of life.
Unfortunately, not all communities have the same access to healthy, safe, reliable and affordable transportation options, such as public transit and biking and walking paths.
No question about it—being involved in a coalition to build a tiny village of tiny shelters for people who are without a place to live, is damn exciting!
I can’t put my finger on exactly why this is taking over my brain activity—from waking up in the morning ready to get online and share ideas, to dreaming about it at night.
Maybe it’s what someone at our community meeting last week said about it—tiny homes are sexy!
