2014.12.17: Brooklyn Public Defenders Die-In for Eric Garner

So proud to be with hundreds of fellow Association of Legal Aid Attorneys – UAW 2325 members, Attorneys of Color of Legal Aid (ACLA), 1199 members and other public defenders who walked out of Brooklyn Criminal Court and joined today’s die-in at Brooklyn House of Detention, for Eric Garner, Mike Brown and all other victims of police violence, mass incarceration and a racist criminal justice system. We also took over Brooklyn Bridge Place and marched through downtown Brooklyn.

Chants included:
*Black Lives Matter: Justice for Eric Garner!
*No Justice, No Peace, No Racist Police!
*End Broken Windows: Fire Bill Bratton!
*Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!
*Eric Garner, Mike Brown, Shut it Down, Shut the Whole Damn System Down!
*Indict, convict, send those killer cops to jail, the whole damn system is guilty as hell!
*Who’s Streets? Our Streets!
*What Do We Want? Justice!
