From the NYC Streets, Wednesday night, 8 p.m.

December 3, 2014 | Revolution Newspaper |


A report from the middle of a march:

Few hundred of us rallied at Union Square. There were lot of people, including lot of young people, testifying about what they thought about the outrageous grand jury decision. People expressing fear they had of themselves or for their brothers getting killed by police. Young people crying. Pouring out anger and outrage. We met lots of people who told us this was their first protest. When they heard about the grand jury decision not to indict the cop who choked Eric Garner to death, they couldn't take it any more—they just had to go to get out into the street.

We marched out from Union Square to Rockefeller Plaza where the annual big Christmas tree lighting was scheduled—to  disrupt business-as-usual and tell the world that these police murders must STOP. We joined up with others at Times Square. We were not able to get to the tree lighting because of the HUGE police presence.

People have been chanting for hours now: "Justice for Eric Garner!" "Indict, convict, the whole damn system is guilty as hell!" "NYPD, KKK, how many kids have you killed today?!", etc.

We've marched up to Harlem, where there was a speak-out against police brutality at the 25th precinct station. There were chants of "This is racist bullshit. We need an indictment!"
