NY City Lens: The Faces of Protest

20151023-Bellingham-RiseUpOctober2015-71.jpgheOver a thousand protesters gathered in Manhattan to march against police brutality on Saturday, October 24. Holding portraits of men and women killed by police, the demonstrators peacefully marched two miles to Times Square, past the NYPD officers lining the streets.

Women in hijabs, a Jewish youth group, LGBT activists, students and more lined up to march with predominantly African-American families of victims. This was the capstone of a three-day long national action organized by the Stop Mass Incarceration Network, an organization created to combat the disproportionate incarceration of black and Latino Americans. Notable attendees included filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, activist-academic Cornel West and Revolutionary Communist Party founding member Carl Dix.
