The whole world saw NYPD cop Daniel Pantaleo choke Eric Garner to death.
Before the cop chokes Eric, you hear him say Pantaleo and another officer, "Every time you see me you want to mess with me... I'm tired of this."
And you hear Eric's last words, "I can't breathe. I can't breathe...." Then you see the cops not do a damn thing to save his life.
Maybe it wasn't a rope hanging from a tree like back in the day but this was still a lynching, NYPD style. At Rikers Island they bake a man to death in his 100° plus cell.
In a Florida prison the guards burn a mentally ill man to death with a scalding shower, his skin peeling off.
They beat us; they shoot us; they choke us. THIS MUST STOP!
We do not have to accept them killing us. We do not have to suffer in silence. But we must come together to say NO MORE!
And we must act with determined resistance in the streets, in our schools, in our neighborhoods, in our churches, everywhere. You hear Eric say, "This stops today." We must make this real. The days when they can kill us and laugh about it like we are animals must end.
YOU ARE NEEDED TO MAKE THIS STOP! Do not let them get away with murdering Eric. Bring your friends, co-workers, classmates, members of your congregation, and neighbors together.
Make plans to show your outrage. Take to the streets. Shout from the rooftops. Carry your signs. Blow your whistles. Beat your drums. JUSTICE FOR ERIC GARNER! And as we fight for Justice for Eric, join with people all across the country in a movement to stop these horrors. Get down with the October Month of Resistance to Mass Incarceration, Police Terror, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation.
