E-mails and fliers have spread across the Yale campus since Wednesday advertising a citywide protest against police brutality.
The protest, a march that will start at 1 p.m. this Saturday, Oct. 23 in front of City Hall and will move towards the police station, was organized in part by Civilians for Policing Reform, a group composed of roughly half of the Elevate Raid Student Response Committee and local community activists, said CPR member Steven Winter ’11, who was one of the students arrested at Elevate.
According to the newest e-mail, the protest is also endorsed by 20 different groups from Yale and New Haven.
“[The different groups] feel that by joining forces we can present a strong case to the city for change,” Winter said.
Winter 2added that he anticipates at least several dozen protesters will come to march for about an hour.
