Philadelphia: Day of Protest on Ferguson Outrage, November 25, 2014.
“A long day of demonstrations started at City Hall with a march to Temple University, followed by a march to the 9th Police District to free two activists arrested in yesterday’s protest, before a final march through Center City streets ended in Rittenhouse Square.”
Buffalo, New York: Chanting “white supremacy’s got to go!”, we burned the racist confederate flag in Niagara Square in Buffalo today, at a rally to Stand With Charleston, called by Buffalo Anti-Racism Coalition.
Fullerton, California: Justice for Kelly Thomas protest, January 15, 2014.
“This was a protest supporting Kelly Thomas and fighting against police brutality. 6 officers brutally murdered this unarmed homeless man with one of them saying "we’re going to f*** you up” and kept beating him while he cried out to his dad 39 times and pleaded for them to stop until he went into a coma and died hours later. This is very cruel and inhumane what these men with badges have done to Thomas and gotten away with it. We have to stand against injustice because as Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” One of the most painful horrendous videos I had to watch. 33 minutes of sick corrupt officers killing a homeless man.“
New York City: Don’t let them use Paris as an excuse for racism & war! Protest at CNN, Nov. 15, 2015.

A People’s Response to G20 Summit – which is being turned into a “WAR” Summit
An Urgent Reason To Join The Protest Against Capitalism and Racism on Sunday
We mourn for those who were killed and injured in Paris on Friday. But mourning is not enough. We must also remember that what happened in Paris is yet another terrible example of the bitter fruits that are the fallout from endless war, occupation, shock-and-awe bombings, and regime change.
That fallout also includes the decimation of Iraq, and a human rights crisis in both Syria and Iraq of epic proportions – including the displacement of millions of people. Now is the time to remember how 911 was used as a pretext for war, racism and repression.
The corporate media wants us to forget the heroic protest of the Black students at Missouri State University that has inspired students across the country. They want us to shut all protest down so that they can whip up a new war fever.
The racist anti-immigrant movements in Europe and the U.S. are already planning how they will use the attacks in Paris on November 13 to bolster their violent campaigns against African, Arab, and Latino immigrants. Police chiefs across the U.S. who have been pushed back by the Black Lives Matter movement are at this very movement feverishly strategizing about how they will use the Paris attacks to support the ongoing police war against Black and Brown people.Homeland Security and the Wall Street interests that it serves will try to use the Paris attacks to expand surveillance and repression against protest movements. Politicians and their billionaire backers are already plotting how they will use the Paris attacks to launch a wider war against the peoples of the Middle East, Africa and Asia – the same way that Bush used 911 to destroy Iraq. Now is the time for all of us who know this to stand up and say NO!
