#‎SHUTDOWNCITYHALLNYC has already garnered widespread media attention (examples below). And this morning, NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton resigned.

Live tweets (with lots of pix and video) are being posted here.

ALAA members were among hundreds at last night’s 6pm rally, and will be there again tonight.

Demands

  1. Fire NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton & end Broken Windows policing
  2. Reparations for all survivors & victims of racist police brutality from NYPD budget
  3. Defund NYPD’s $5.5 billion annual budget & re-invest into Black & Brown communities
