Jessica de Guadalupe Aguallo-Hurtado of the National Brown Beret Organization speaks at a news conference on Saturday, Sept. 5, 2020, on police accountability in front of the Antioch Police Department. Activist­s have launched a hunger strike to demand police reform in Antioch. The activists want Antioch police to fire Officer Michael Mellone, who was involved in the fatal shooting of a San Francisco homeless man in 2016, and to discipline Cpl. Steve Aiello for his social media comment on a meme that they said inappropriately incited violence by suggesting it was OK to slap a protester’s face.
