By  – San Francisco – Protesters have blocked traffic with street theater and chained themselves to Mission Police Station as part of an action against officer-involved shootings in the city and in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. The roughly 100 activists began arriving at about 7 a.m. to mark the one year anniversary of the police shooting of Alex Nieto. They were joined by Nieto’s parents and the youth rhythm and dance ensemble Loco Bloco.
Ten of the protesters joined hands through tubing and chained themselves to the Valencia street exit of the Mission Station parking lot. Public Information Officer Albie Esparza said the action is not interfering with their ability to respond to calls for service with the vehicles they already have out and about. Esparza said the police do not currently have plans to take action against protesters and are simply monitoring their “First Amendment rights activity.”

Activisten hebben het verkeer lamgelegd met straattheater, en ketenden zichzelf vast aan het Mission Politiekantoor.
De acties waren gericht tegen de agenten die betrokken waren bij de schietpartijen in de stad en in solidariteit met de ‘Black Lives Matter ‘beweging.
De ongeveer 100 activisten verschenen rond 7u ter plaatse om the police shooting of Alex Nieto nu juist een jaar geleden te herdenken.
Nieto’s ouders en de ‘youth rhythm and dance ensemble’ Loco Bloco waren aanwezig.

Tien activisten reikten elkaar de hand door kartonnen kokers en ketende zich vast aan de uitgang van de parking van het politiekantoor in Valencia straat.

Albie Esparza, de woordvoerder van de politie verklaarde dat de actie hun werkzaamheden in dienst van het publiek niet zal beïnvloeden, daar er genoeg wagens buiten waren.
Verder zei hij dat de politie op dit moment niet zal ingrijpen tegen de actievoerders, die hun “First Amendment rights activity,” recht op vrije mening, uitoefenden.
