Los Angeles, CA – People in Los Angeles will be marching Sept. 18 to demand justice for Manuel Jamines, the Guatemalan immigrant who was gunned down by L.A. police Sept. 5.

The Southern California Immigration Coalition is organizing the rally and march.

Carlos Montes, a protest organizer and veteran leader of the Chicano liberation movement stated, “Join us as we stand in solidarity with our Guatemalan brothers and sisters as we demand justice for Manuel Jamines.
