Day of Anger

Saturday Dec. 13, 2pm: Day of Anger – Millions March NYC (ALAA contingent location TBA)
‘We call for the cessation of mass incarceration and the eradication of the prison industrial complex all together.’
https://www.facebook.com/events/959630214065046/

The system isn’t broken, it’s racist by design
‘When the police and other state-sanctioned vigilantes are killing African Americans at a rate of one every 28 hours, people won’t accept toothless reforms meant to quell anger while doing absolutely nothing to punish, imprison and disarm the real menace–the agents of the state who terrorize African American communities with impunity.’

December 13: Palestine Contingent at the Millions March NYC #BlackLivesMatter #ICantBreathe
‘These struggles against oppression – both locally and globally – are one. In the words of Martin Luther King, Jr: “None of us is free until all of us are free.”’
