Carl Dix Presents Demand Directly to Mayor Bill DeBlasio: 
“The NYPD must not prevent the O22 march from going into Times Square!”

October 20, 2014 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us




Carl Dix: “The NYPD murders people....This is proven fact...It is entirely unacceptable for them to wantonly visit brutality and even murder on so many people, and then to turn around and tell us whether, when, where, and how we can protest that brutality…We must take this message into Times Square where it will reach the eyes of the world.”


Juanita Young:  “We Are Representing These 261 Stolen Lives!”

Carl Dix, Occupy activist Cecily McMillan, Juanita Young, whose son Malcolm Ferguson murdered by Police, Brian Jones of the Green Party, Nathan from Code Pink, and Danette Chavis whose son was killed by police all condemned the NYPD’s permit denial and passionately declared their intention to march into Times Square “come hell or high water,” and called on people to join them on October 22. 


Juanita Young:  “It’s bad enough our children are murdered out here in these streets and for somebody to say no, you can’t come on this block. How dare you. And we the Parents Against Police Brutality and A Mothers Cry for Justice say NO MORE! We’re gonna to do what we need to do to get the attention that our loved ones deserve being that they’re not here to be with us. We’re going to speak for them.”


Cecily McMillan: “Anybody who has the last fighting shred to be able to stand up and say my voice matters and you want to shut that down?...We have got to give people spaces to have voices in our democracy. And people are saying the only way you can do that is in the streets so that is where we’ll do it.”


Hands up don’t shoot for all stolen lives…We demand NYPD allow march through Times Square

The Stop Mass Incarceration Network announced that relatives of those murdered by police would be protesting outside the Mayor’s official residence – Gracie Mansion – Tuesday, Oct 21 at 3pm. 


From the Stop Mass Incarceration Network:  “It is very important that the fight to force the authorities to allow the march to proceed into Times Square on October 22 be taken to a higher level. Everyone who hates the way the police brutalize and even murder people and get away without any punishment must add their voices to the call for the march to go into Times Square. We need you to:

  • Call, Tweet and/or write Mayor Bill de Blasio and demand that the NYPD not prevent the march from proceeding into Times Square on the October 22 National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation.
  • Tweet the following message to @NYCMayorsOffice and @CommissBratton: RT Allow Oct 22 march in2 Times Sq #Oct22 Nat'l Day of Protest 2 Stop #PoliceBrutality #o22
  • Mayor: Go to http://www.nyc.gov/html/static/pages/officeofthemayor/contact.shtml and fill out email with: “We demand that the NYPD not prevent the march on October 22 from proceeding into Times Square to deliver its message that police brutality must STOP on the National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation.”
  • Call and email the Mayor Bill de Blasio's Press Office with the same demand: pressoffice@cityhall.nyc.gov (212) 788-2958

And most of all we need you to come out to Union Square on Wednesday, October 22, at 1 PM; to bring your friends, the people you go to school with, everybody, out with you to say in a loud, united voice that Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation must STOP!”
