FETE COMMEMORATION THEME OF COMBATING POLICE MISCONDUCT
The National Chicano Moratorium Committee (NCMC) will hold a press conference to highlight the theme of this years August 30 march and rally commemorating the death of LA Times and KTLA TV news reporter Ruben Salazar at the hands of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department August 29, 1970 at 10:30 a.m. on August 27, 2014 at the park which now bears Ruben F.

Salazar is also the investigator for the family of Sonoma County shooting victims Andy Lopez which is suing the Sonoma County Sheriffs Department over the death of their unarmed teenage son and the failure of local authorities to charge anybody in the incident.
Also confirmed to speak at this time are NCMC Chairperson Jaime Cruz and California League of Latin American Citizens State Director and long time Private Investigator Jan B. Tucker.
