821 W State Street, Milwaukee, WI – 2:30 P.M. (Milwaukee Safety Building)
Join the Milwaukee Coalition in demanding justice for Joel Acevedo, a man who was killed by off-duty officer Michael Mattioli.
Michael Mattioli is being tried for 1st-Degree Reckless Homicide for choking Joel Acevedo to death at a party he hosted during the height of the lockdown in April of 2020. Mattioli choked Joel Acevedo for 11 minutes and 22 seconds.
On March 8th at 3PM, there will be a hearing on the charges brought against Mattioli. We will rally outside of the Milwaukee Safety Building to demand justice for Joel Acevedo! Arrest this killer cop NOW!
In Minneapolis on May 25th, George Floyd was murdered by Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin. Much like Joel Acevedo, he was choked to death for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. This sparked an uprising against police brutality and for Black Liberation around the world.
The National Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression is making a national call to action on March 8th, as Derek Chauvin will be the first killer cop involved in George Floyd’s death to stand trial. We will be supporting this and standing in solidarity with organizers in Minneapolis and around the US!
