More than 100 people gathered July 26 to protest the brutal killing-on-video of Eric Garner in Staten Island, N.Y. They met at the site of Garner’s death from a cop’s chokehold to demand justice and “stop killer cops!” Outrage over Garner’s killing has been expressed around the U.S. At the protest were representatives from Rebel Diaz, Peoples Organization for Progress, the December 12th Movement, Workers World Party, Peoples Power Assembly Movement, NAACP and other groups. A march is planned for Saturday, Aug. 2, from Bay Street to the police station. Pictured here is Larry Hamm of POP.
