Albuquerque protesters vow more civil disobedience



Published: Fri, May 9, 2014 @ 3:24 p.m.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Activists in Albuquerque say attempts to silence them over criticism of police will only make them more aggressive in future protests.

Several demonstrators were removed from council chambers late Thursday after they refused to speak at the podium and turned their backs to councilors because of new rule changes they say limit free speech.

The demonstrators are pressing city officials to make changes to Albuquerque police after 39 police shootings since 2010.

David Correia, a protest organizer and University of New Mexico American studies professor, says he and others received citations ordering them not to return to City Hall for 90 days or risk arrest.

Correia says protesters are meeting Saturday to decide what actions they will take next. He says the actions will likely involve more civil disobedience.

Gooberment officials don't get it. They work for us, not us obeying their moronic whims. Something real bad will come of the suppression of our so called leaders eventually. To many of those in their 20's and 30's learned to read the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Left or Right none seemed to be concerned about our nation or its people.
