Where people aren't blown away for pulling out their wallet or a cell phone. Where youth have
decent education and meaningful work, not years in prison. Where people can protest without being spied on, shut down and beaten by police. We must stand together and say in a loud, powerful voice:
STOP POLICE BRUTALITY, REPRESSION and the
CRIMINALIZATION of a GENERATION!
OCTOBER 22nd--NO MORE STOLEN LIVES!
WEAR BLACK! FIGHT BACK!
