Friends say Gugino is a Catholic peace activist, not Antifa
Or a beloved Catholic peace activist who was the victim of police brutality in Buffalo, New York? In the video, an officer is seen shoving Gugino, who falls to the sidewalk, hitting his head. Martin has a passion for social justice, said Mark Colville, who runs Amistad Catholic Worker in New Haven, Connecticut, and has known Gugino for years. After the 2014 killing of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old African American boy who was shot by a police officer, Gugino traveled to Cleveland to meet with Rices parents. He is also active with the Western New York Peace Center and PUSH Buffalo, a coalition working on affordable housing.
