On December 30, about 60 gathered at 3pm at the Justice Center to march and disrupt downtown Cleveland for the 3rd day of protest since the Grand Jury came down with a no-indictment decision on the killing by a pig for killing Tamir Rice for playing with a toy gun in a park.
People marched into the major intersection of Public Square, stayed in the intersection for hours, drew lots of attention and held up traffic for hours.
While half the people stayed, the rest went on a march through downtown. Revolution Club members helped lead this march chanting “How do we get out of this mess? Revolution Nothing Less!” and “We young, we strong, we marchin’ all night long!”
The march was spirited, reached lots of people walking along the way and when the police were trying to move on them, they got out quickly. Revolution sellers got out the “This cannot go down like this! “This cannot go on!” statement from revcom.us. A Revolution Club member said, “We reached a lot of people, a few joined the march. Some people wanted to get deeper into what was going on, especially woman with children saying ‘They could do it to my child’[referring to the police killing of Tamir Rice].
People are still out there and want it stopped. People on the march took up the Revolution Nothing Less chant. Some people are looking at revolution as a solution, people want to get out of this mess.” At the end of 6 hours of marching people talked about getting organized for an action on New Years Eve here.
