Carl Dix in Defense of Juanita Young

Monday, August 10th 2009 -- Carl Dix kicked off a press conference and rally by community residents, supporters and activists, and several family members of Stolen Lives, who joined in solidarity with anti-police brutality activist Juanita Young and her family.

The press conference denounced the continuing police violence and abuse against Juanita's family, and its latest incident when plainclothes cops crashed a outdoor cookout and arrested Juanita's son and neighbors. After the press conference, people marched to the 43rd Precinct demanding an end to police terror and harassment of Young and her family.
