Protesters march against hate crimes targeting Latinos
“A few hundred people on Sunday marched in Brooklyn to protest last week’s fatal beating of a 31-year-old Ecuadorean man — an incident authorities say may have been a hate crime.”
“The demonstrators — holding signs reading ‘No more hate crimes’ — walked a half-mile in the neighborhood where police say Jose Sucuzhanay was hit in the head with a bottle and beaten with an aluminum baseball bat on December 7.”
“Sucuzhanay died of his injuries Friday at Elmhurst Hospital, hours before his mother arrived in New York from Ecuador, his family said.”
“Police said Sucuzhanay’s attackers yelled racial slurs; no arrests have been made in the case. One of his brothers, Diego Sucuzhanay, said Sunday he is convinced the attack was a hate crime.”
