How can we stop legal lynching?

By | December 1, 2014

The grand jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for the August 9 murder of Ferguson resident Mike Brown is simultaneously shocking and predictable. The global spotlight on Ferguson makes the decision to let Wilson walk all the more surprising, but the ugly reality is that police routinely murder Black and Brown people across the U.S. without facing consequences. The number of people killed by police last year was the highest number in 20 years, according to the FBI itself.

Come to this meeting to discuss why the police are so out of control and what we can do to demand justice.

Panelist:
LaKiza Fowler – sister to Larry Jackson Jr. who was shot and killed by an APD officer as he was trying to go to the bank.

Snehal Shingavi – member of the International Socialist
Organization and the People’s Task Force, a grassroots organization that fights against police brutality and racism.

Thursday December 4th, 7:00pm
UT Campus, Parlin 105

    I would like to know if there is a chapter of either of the organizations mentioned here in NYC. I am interested in joining an legit organization that fights exactly these types of violence against my people.

      We only have a chapter in Austin as we are relatively new. I’m also part of an organization called the International Socialist Organization and they taught me the nuts and bolts organizing skills I use in the PTF. The ISO is nationwide and we have a branch in NYC. Check out their website and let them know you are interested in anti police brutality organizing and they can probably connect you with legit groups in town who are doing that work, or will let you know about campaigns they are already involved in.
