CIVIL TRIAL AGAINST

KILLER COPS

Martin Cotton II was living houseless and unarmed on August 9th, 2007 in Eureka, California when Eureka Police severely abused him, and then brought him to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility. At the jail, he was further attacked by guards, and left to die on the floor of a cell.

 

On Monday, January 10, a federal civil rights trial, brought on behalf of Martin Cotton’s baby daughter, Siehna Cotton, and by Martin’s father, Marty Cotton, will begin in Oakland: Siehna Cotton et. al. v. Eureka Police Dept. and Humbold County Sheriff’s Dept.

 

Join Redwood Curtain Copwatch and the NLG SF Bay Area Anti-Racism Committee in a discussion of what happened to Martin Cotton and learn how to connect to community struggles against police brutality. Help strategize to sustain public pressure during the upcoming trial.
