We are demanding that San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee fire SFPD Chief Suhr.

In the five years since Chief Greg Suhr has taken control of the San Francisco Police Department it has become a paramilitary organization. According to SFPD’s CompStat, there have been over 30 officer involved shootings that have resulted in the killing of 21 people, since Mayor Ed Lee appointed Suhr as chief in 2011. We can no longer stand by as our citizens are brutally murdered by those that have taken an oath to protect and serve. We can no longer support a police department wrought with corruption and criminal behavior. The racist texts, the racial profiling, the murderous tactics, and the regularly practiced terrorism on San Francisco's most marginalized communities all point to the deep and immediate need for drastic reforms.

I stand in support of Maria Cristina Gutierrez, Ilyich (Equipto) Sato, Edwin Lindo, Ike Pinkston, Sellassie Blackwell and others who are participating in the “Hunger For Justice SF” hunger strike that started April 21st, and is taking place in front of the Mission Police Station in San Francisco (#HungerforJusticeSF). I support their demands that Chief Suhr resign from his position as Chief of SFPD. If he does not resign, we demand that Mayor Lee listen to the will of the people and fire him. If Mayor Lee refuses to do so, then we demand that he resign as Mayor of San Francisco.

Contact Mayor Edwin Lee at (phone: 415-554-6141 email: and tell him... We stand with the Hunger for Justice strikers at Mission Police Station. WE DEMAND THAT YOU FIRE CHIEF SUHR IMMEDIATELY!
