July 30 (Sunday): Rally and March to Protest Hate Crime in Southampton at 3:30pm
Benny Torres, Chair of the Southampton Democratic Party and the victim of an apparent hate crime will lead a rally and march this Sunday, July 30. The march will start at 3:30pm and proceed from the Southampton railroad station to Southampton Town Hall.
The aim of the rally is to call for a halt to a rash of East End hate crimes.
Three men threatening the son of Benny Torres at his house assaulted him, causing injury, while calling him a spic Mexican, among other hateful vitriol, and traumatized the family. Although one assailant was arrested and arraigned, the police refused to charge him with a hate crime. The Long Island Immigrant Alliance will show its solidarity and support of Mr. Torres, an American citizen, at a demonstration this Sunday.
