Which Side Are You On?
Michael Brown was murdered last August by Ferguson police. And so were Ezell Ford and Omar Abrego, by the LAPD. Over 1100 people have been killed by cops since. Never forgive! Never forget! Hands Up! Don't Shoot! Stop Police Terror! Which Side Are You On?
August 9th will be the 1-year anniversary of the murder of Michael Brown by killer cop Darren Wilson. In response to the murder of Michael Brown, defiant youth and others took to the streets of Ferguson for days and then weeks, refusing to back down in the face of tear gas, rubber bullets, and National Guard. This was HISTORIC. It sent a shock wave waking up millions and inspiring a nationwide struggle for justice long overdue. The Ferguson rebellion was righteous, needed and must be upheld. The people who stood up should be recognized for their courage, sacrifice and the huge difference their actions made.
When Omar Abrego and Ezell Ford were murdered by the LAPD Newton Division last August, people hit the streets of LA, part of nationwide struggle to stop murder by police that got jumped off in Ferguson days before.
Yet the cold blooded, brutal murders of Michael Brown, Omar Abrego and Ezell Ford have been covered up and justified by the system. In Michael Brown's case, by the St. Louis County Grand Jury and then by the Dept. of (IN)Justice. In Omar Abrego's case by the LAPD and Police Commission and LA District Attorney. In Ezell Ford's case, by the LAPD and LA District Attorney. This shows once again why people were right to stand up and refuse to wait for justice that never comes while murder by police never stops.
On Sunday, August 9 on 65th and Broadway in South Central LA - at the murder site of Ezell Ford - we'll remember the precious lives of these brothers and others stolen from us in the last year and we will take to the streets to demand JUSTICE... we'll march to the Newton Division of the LAPD to expose the towering crimes committed by the LAPD and police nationwide. We will do this as part of getting ready for Rise Up October! ~ October 22 in cities across the U.S. to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation. AND THEN... October 24 thousands and thousands of people from around the country will descend on New York City and SHUT DOWN the city of New York by the sheer weight of our numbers, to deliver a message to the world we are determined to Stop Police Terror and we will not stop until murder by police stops!
