On Tuesday afternoon, police in El Cajon, a suburb of San Diego, California, shot and killed Alfred Olango, a 38-year old refugee from Uganda, in a shopping center parking lot. His sister had just called 911 for help, telling dispatchers her brother was having a mental health emergency. According to news reports, eyewitnesses stated Olango was holding his hands up when police first tased him. Then another cop shot him five times. Olango was unarmed. He was reportedly holding was a 3-inch e-cigarette. This is yet another outrageous police murder!
From the Revolution Club, Los Angeles: Hundreds of people gathered at the site of the murder of Alfred Olango in El Cajon, a city near San Diego. The Revolution Club traveled to El Cajon to organize people into the revolution. We participated in a speak out at the site of the murder and the subsequent march that shut down several city intersections and streets. The Revolution Club distributed hundreds of the new pamphlet "HOW WE CAN WIN—How We Can Really Make Revolution" to people from El Cajon and many others that came from all throughout Southern California and beyond. There was deep engagement with people over problem and solution. More to come.
