Film Screening of Denver Police Actions at 2007 Columbus Day Protests
POLICE ACTIONS AT 2007 COLUMBUS DAY PROTEST
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2007, 8PM
27TH & WELTON -
EAST POINT OF HISTORIC FIVE POINTS
On October 6, 2007 in downtown Denver, Denver Police moved against non-violent protesters blocking the Columbus Day Parade. Denver CopWatch has reviewed video and photos taken by CopWatch observers and has identified a number of serious examples of excessive force by police. Police used pain holds on protesters who were already in police custody. The deliberate infliction of pain on compliant prisoners is a clear violation of international human rights standards.
On Friday, November 16, 2007, Denver CopWatch will show video and still photos from the Columbus Day protests to make public this deliberate use of pain and violence against non-violent demonstrators. This event will begin at 8PM at Crossroads Theater, 2590 Washington St., Denver, CO.
The Crossroads is a new theater located on the East point of the Five Points intersection in the historic Five Points neighborhood.
Denver CopWatch is a local grass roots human rights group working for police accountability. Come to 5 Points on November 16 and judge for yourself.
