July 17: Hunts Point, Bronx, #StopTheViolence #Rage&Love #BlackLivesMatter #NoJusticeNoPeace


At 4 pm on a hot July afternoon, the second anniversary of Eric Garner’s murder by police chokehold, we came together for Black Lives Matter and for an end to broken windows policing, poverty, gentrification, unemployment and all the forms of violence endlessly perpetrated against the people of the South Bronx.

Organizing groups for #StoptheViolence#OrganizeYoBlock included: Mothers on the Move, The Rebel Diaz Arts Collective, The Laundromat Project, The BLK ProjeK, The Point CDC, Bronx Climate Justice North, and more. We rallied with speakers and drumming at Hunts Point Plaza, old and young, all colors, all ages, all parts of the Bx, before marching through largely residential streets of the S. Bx, ending at the 41st precinct on Longwood.

Please stay tuned for more organizing for #BronxJustice. Huge thank you to Ben Meyers of the NYC National Lawyers Guild, who participated as legal observer at very short notice.
