Alton Sterling Shote by Police in Baton Rouge
Philando Castile shot dead in Falcon heights Minnesota by police
Alton Sterling, Baton Rouge, Louisiana:
Once more this system's pigs carry out cold-blooded murder of a Black man!
This goddamn white supremacist system must be brought down at the at the earliest possible time...
Why are these murdering pigs still free?
On July 5th, police tackled Alton Sterling to the ground, held him down, tazed him, and then shot him dead in cold blood.
Eric Garner... Rekia Boyd... Freddie Gray... Michael Brown... murder after murder after murder and still no justice. 400 goddamn years and still no justice, no humanity. How long will this go on? Enough is goddamn enough.
WE MUST ACT. People need to do two things:
One, in Baton Rouge people are righteously standing up and fighting back, making it unmistakably clear: THERE MUST BE JUSTICE! All eyes are on Baton Rouge. This must continue with more and more people joining and supporting them. We cannot let this shit go down like nothing happened. And, people everywhere throughout the country need to get out and say this police murder stops now. The "authorities" and their totally illegitimate system are already working to get these cops off, and that cannot be allowed to happen.
Two, people need to get ready to make a real revolution to bring this system down... and to do that, you need to get into the work of and follow the leadership of Bob Avakian who is seriously working and fighting to build the movement for an actual revolution at the earliest possible time. Get connected and up to the minute with the revolution: go to www.revcom.us everyday.
Stop police terror!
Indict, convict, send the killer cops to jail!
Fight the Power, and Transform the People, for Revolution
CNN press conference with family of Alton Sterling | Rare News
Message posted by musician, songwriter & producer Drake on instagram:
"I am grateful to be able to call America my second home. Last night when I saw the video of Alton Sterling being killed it left me feeling disheartened, emotional and truly scared. I woke up this morning with a strong need to say something.
It’s impossible to ignore that the relationship between black and brown communities and law enforcement remains as strained as it was decades ago. No one begins their life as a hashtag. Yet the trend of being reduced to one continues.
This is real and I’m concerned. Concerned for the safety of my family, my friends and any human being that could fall victim to this pattern. I do not know the answer. But I believe things can change for the better. Open and honest dialogue is the first step.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Sterling family and any family that has lost someone to this cycle of violence.
Be safe out there. More life.”
