Activists gathered in downtown Flagstaff Sunday to protest what they view as extreme police violence against minority populations including Native Americans. Arizona Public Radio’s Ryan Heinsius reports, they called for the firing of a Winslow police officer who shot and killed a Navajo woman in March.

A Flagstaff group will protest what they say is the 2 millionth immigrant deportation under the Obama Administration. As Arizona Public Radio’s Ryan Heinsius reports, the rally is part of a nationwide day of action.

Protestors at Arizona State Capitol Face New Restrictions

Jan 20, 2012

Beginning this morning, protestors at the state Capitol are going to face some new restrictions. Arizona Public Radio's Howard Fischer explains.

On a party-line vote, the Republican members of the Legislative Council voted Thursday to ban bullhorns by those marching between the House and Senate. House Speaker Andy Tobin said the devices are not only disruptive to the legislative process but also interfere with the rights of others. One of those is Kathryn Kobor who told lawmakers she has come to the Capitol for years to protest illegal immigration.
