Here is the info for the Candlelight Vigil in response to the senseless murder of Jose Suzuchanay in Bushwick last weekend. Mr. Suzuchanay was beaten, along with his brother, and killed in an unprovoked anti-gay, anti-Hispanic bat attack. We pulled this together, and I request that you attend, and tell everyone you can about this. Meg Hitchcock of Bushwick is the primary organizer. Info is as follows:
CANDLELIGHT VIGIL FOR A BUSHWICK HATE CRIME
Sunday, December 14th 2008
Early Sunday morning 2 brothers from Ecuador were walking to their homes in Bushwick arm in arm. They were attacked by 3 men who shouted anti-gay and anti-Hispanic insults as they beat the brothers with an aluminum baseball bat and a broken bottle. Jose Sucuzhanay died Tuesday morning from extensive brain damage and skull fractures. He co-owned a real estate business in Bushwick. A vigil has been organized by a Bushwick community member, Meg Hitchcock. Note, this event is not organized by Arts In Bushwick, but we will be there and we hope you'll come show your support in protesting this horrible attack on a member of our community. Sunday, December 14th Meet in front of The Archive café at 49 Bogart Street (at Seigel and Bogart) at 7pm. We will walk to the scene of the crime at Bushwick Ave. and Kossuth Place and have a few moments of silence at 8pm. Please bring extra candles. And, spread the word!
