Albuquerque Residents Take Over City Council and Call for Arrest of Police Chief

Abq City Council

UPDATE, 5.10.14: After Monday's occupation of the city council, new rules were imposed, aimed at heading off any disturbance, prohibiting people from carrying signs or congregating around the speaker’s podium - but the demonstrators returned undeterred, returning to stand in silent protest at the podium. One of them was Michael Gomez, whose son was shot and killed by police three years ago. He stood silently after putting a picture of his son, Alan, on the projector.
