Help Wicahpiluta (Luta) Candelaria

via Laura Cedillo: Our Friend/Warrior, Wicahpiluta Candelaria, Luta was the victim of Police Brutality on Friday night and continues to be in custody. We are looking for folks to assist in contributing to his legal defense.

Luta was walking home in San Leandro when he was approached by police officers asking where he was headed... He answered home and they pushed for an address, Luta declared he didn't need to give that information and was ambushed from behind by 7 police officers. He was badly beaten, his eye socket was broken.

Luta has court on Monday, June 23 and would also appreciate folks support to be witness to this at 2pm in Hayward on Amador Blvd.

Luta has stood up and offered songs at so many events and for many folks as they were sick, lets help him now to come home. He is being charged with obstruction of justice....We are also interested in finding a lawyer that could also help....
