One year since we watched the cops choke him to death. One year since we heard his dying words: “I can’t breathe” - words that the cops ignored. And still no justice! This murder, and how the whole system went into motion to exonerate Eric Garner’s killer, concentrate the slow genocide this system continues to enforce on Black and Latino people. As we observe the anniversary of the murder of Eric Garner, we are confronted with a genocide that is speeding up, and getting even more blatant and ugly - whether from white supremacist murderers waving Confederate flags, or killer cops wearing American flags. To observe the one-year since Eric’s last breath, we need to get back out into the streets. We must let everyone know that we have not forgotten; that we have not moved on; that we refuse still to suffer these horrors in silence; and that “healing” cannot happen until the gaping wound of white supremacy is closed and no longer bleeding out.

Join in turning this society upside down — 3 days of powerful resistance, October 2-23-24, 2015, thousands and thousands of people from around the country descending on NYC, joining thousands and thousands of people here, shutting the city down by the sheer weight of our numbers.
