Take to the streets if Goodson walks, or gets slap on wrist!
Baltimore police MURDERED Freddie Gray. Yet the courts are letting the killer cops walk free one by one.
This is totally unacceptable.
When the verdict is announced – show your outrage, take to the streets, starting at the courthouse.

If you knew that a murderer was living next door would you do something? What if you witnessed the murder happen, would you demand for justice then? What if countless people were losing their lives every day at the hands of one notorious gang? We have all seen the videos of the crimes the police commit against humanity--killing people who are running away, have their hands up, are laying on the ground or doing nothing. People beaten, tased, stomped, choked and shot to death. If a photo is worth a thousand words, you would assume a video would be worth enough to indict, convict, and send these killer cops to jail. And yet they continue to get away with murder. If you are Black or Brown, you live under that threat every day of your life. If you don't, you probably know someone who does. There is a genocide happening right under our noses. It is a slow genocide now, but you look at people like Trump and you see how this genocide could escalate. The time to fight this is NOW! more

Students and Advocates Demand NYU Abolish Box- Admin Threatening to Take Disciplinary Action and Criminal Action Against Non-Students
WHAT: Incarceration to Education Coalition is occupying Kimmel at NYU until administration agrees to Abolish the Box on the college application. We have been campaigning for this for three years on the principle that Higher Education should be accessible to everyone, particularly for those who have been marginalized and disenfranchised. NYU admin is refusing our demands and MAY take disciplinary action against students that remain in the building at midnight, and MAY take criminal action against non-students. Students plan on occupying Kimmel until their demands are met. We demand NYU not take any disciplinary action and instead support the students rather than punish them for their efforts towards safer re-entry and ending mass incarceration. We are calling for media coverage to document the punitive way the administration is responding to student advocacy.Read more
The No More Stolen Lives Tour will go to college campuses and neighborhoods across the country saying the names of the 1000's of people whose lives have been stolen by those who are sworn to protect and serve. Family members of police murder victims will travel to these areas and connect with family from those areas to tell the stories of their murdered loved ones. This will powerfully put before all of society the reality that murder by police is a widespread, systemic problem, not a few isolate incidents or tragic accidents. It will recapture the humanity of the victims of killer cops who are demonized and criminalized in police reports and media coverage after their lives are stolen. This tour will challenge those who feel they can sit on the sidelines and be neutral in the face of this horrific injustice.
Be part of making it happen:
(1) Book a room - get a student organization, professor, or do it yourself in the month of February to coincide with others across the country doing the same.
(2) Promote - make a flier with a date, time, and place and post it around campus (get organizations to endorse the event by sending it out to their list serves, posting it in their departments, making classroom announcements, etc.). Make a FB event page and start inviting everyone!!! Promote on social media.
(3) Book speakers - You should speak on why you decided to organize a Stolen Lives Tour stop on your campus. Invite professors, organizations, or clubs who are speaking out against Police Brutality and Murder.
(4) Contact the Stop Mass Incarceration Network to connect with family members of those killed by police in your area (or to Skype, telephone-in family members).
Send Stop Mass Incarceration Network the details of your event to promote on the website and social media to firstname.lastname@example.org
Contact email@example.com to assist in planning a tour stop on your campus.
