Hostos / Community GET READY!
Police Terror and Murder Must Stop NOW!
Wednesday, October 21, 11-1:30 & 4:45-6:30
In front of Hostos Community College,
Grand Concourse & 149th
By now you have seen it more times that you can count. A video - a Black or Latino person, their hands up, verbally abused, tasered, beaten and/or outright murdered. Killer cops not punished.
How long must this go on? Police terror and murder must stop, NOW.
This is the time to act: RISE UP OCTOBER!
Be part of a "prep rally" to speak-out and get ready - standing up and saying NO MORE! WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON?!
Students, clubs, faculty, community people come at two times Wednesday (lunch and evening rush) to speak out, "Occupy" style - share your experience with police brutality. Hear parents of people murdered by police. Share your rage and determination that this HAS TO STOP NOW! And join in mobilizing Hostos and the community.
Speakers will include:
mother of Mohamad Bah,
(graduate of Bronx Community College murdered by police 2 years ago);
student leader of 1976 occupation that saved Hostos from closure;
