One day after reports surfaced that a federal grand jury is investigating Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and his obvious criminal activities, protesters gathered in front of the Wells Fargo Building in downtown Phoenix (where Arpaio’s office is located) this afternoon to keep the pressure on the criminal Sheriff. Here are photos from the protest.

Many of the people who took part in the protest are part of the Puente Movement, a human rights organization which uses non-violent protests to eradicate political, economic, and religious intolerance.

Puente has also organized a March For Human Rights which will take place at 10 a.m. on Saturday, January 16 at Falcon Park, which is located at 3420 W. Roosevelt Street, next to Carl Hayden High School. Protesters will walk around the Maricopa County Jails in the area. For more information, call 602-314-5870
