Thousands say ‘Stop police terror!’
Thousands rallied and marched in New York City from near Washington Square Park uptown on Sixth Avenue to Bryant Park on Oct. 24 in an action called “Rise Up October” with the goal to “Stop Police Terror and Murder.” Many family members of people killed by police spoke and were at the front of the march, which included many people of color and young people directing the action. “Stop Mass Incarceration” called the march, which attracted the participation of well-known personalities like Dr. Cornel West and film director Quentin Tarantino. The action had support from many left and other anti-racist organizations.
