Vigil in Bushwick today

In response to the last Sunday’s attack on two brothers from Ecuador, Bushwick community members and others are gathering for a march and vigil this afternoon (Sunday, Dec. 14).

The assault is being treated as a hate crime because the men shouted anti-gay and anti-Hispanic insults. Jose Sucuzhanay died on Friday night.

Participants will begin gathering at 2 pm at the corner of Myrtle Avenue and Grove Street (Myrtle/Wyckoff on the L train), then walk to the site of the attack (Bushwick Avenue and Kossuth Place) for a vigil at 4 pm.

The event is being organized by Make the Road.
