Update: July 12, 2016:

Protests Continue Across the U.S. & Beyond

July 12, 2016 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us


People across the United States—and beyond—are continuing to make very clear—as we wrote this week: “that those who want to protest and rebel against this are NOT going away, and they are NOT going to be quelled by calls for dialogue, for letting the system work, etc. The people are not going to be shoved off the streets or out of public awareness by a massive effort on the part of the rulers to ‘change the subject.’ And they are not going to allow the violent attacks by the police, the threats with automatic weapons, the tear gas and pepper spray, to stop this.” (See “Revolution—Nothing Less! A Powerful Week of Resistance and Struggle—A Need to Take It Higher and Further”). Here are some of the sights and sounds from the protests on Sunday and Monday, July 10 and 11.

Atlanta—On the fifth straight day of protests here, in the face of threats of a police crackdown, people went out into the streets to march and block traffic.


Chicago—On Monday afternoon, thousands sat in at the downtown Millennium Park—and then poured into the streets, blocking traffic on the busy Michigan Avenue during rush hour.

Cincinnati, Ohio—Protesters took to the streets late Sunday afternoon in a “Enough Is Enough” rally in front of the police headquarters. Audrey DuBose, the mother of Sam DuBose, an unarmed Black driver shot and killed by a University of Cincinnati cop a year ago, said, “Let’s keep fighting. Don’t wait until it happens to your son.”

London, England—Protesters blocked streets in the Brixton area of south London, “bringing a number of major streets to a standstill” according to a news report.

Memphis, Tennessee—People rallied downtown, and marched—shutting traffic on the Interstate 40 bridge over the Mississippi River. Traffic was at a standstill on both sides of the bridge by about 7 p.m. as the crowd on the bridge swelled to more than 1,000.
