APD Protest hosts demonstration in mayor's neighborhood

Protesters against excessive violence by the Albuquerque Police Department have taken their message to Mayor Richard Berry's neighborhood.

Several people on the corner of Tramway and Central say they've been ignored by Berry's office.

Just last month some of these same protesters were arrested after they staged a sit-in at the mayor's office.

Berry said he has reached out to each protester who has contacted his office and he contends some from the APD Protest group do not call him back.

"People are welcome to protest we just hope that they would take some of that energy and some of that, you know, activism, and get down to working with us on solutions," Berry said.

Berry did not specify which protesters his office has contacted. The group contests the mayor's effort and think the visual presence in his Four Hills neighborhood will get their message across.

"He's contacted none of us," Mary Jobe said. "So when he says he's contacted protestors, I'd like him to make those names available who he's spoken to."
