Protesters Take to the Streets in Albuquerque Over Disapproval of Police Shootings

This is the second wave of protests amidst recent Albuquerque police shootings that have left a homeless man dead, it started at 12:00 pm MST and kicked off with the protest beginning on Central Avenue.

Many showed up wearing Guy Fawkes masks and holding signs in support of Anonymous. The cyber group Anonymous has taken down APD sites with cyber attacks and even intercepted cabq.gov official email contents. Anonymous is standing with the demonstrators calling for a change.

The protests began on Central Avenue but the demonstrators marched to the Albuquerque Police Department. This is where many spoke about their experiences and called for an end to the shootings. The demonstrators were later met with police in riot gear once the march headed downtown. With the protesters calling for change, will the city of Albuquerque listen; two protests in one-week makes it certain they have heard the call.
